(1) My blog - check.
(2) My Reading List - check.
(3) Watched 2016! - NEW for those who care.
(4) My freezer contents - out of control. Seriously. I don't really know when famine and pestilence will occur and the general breakdown of civil society along with food availability will collapse but hell, my larders will outlive me.
(5)My pantry - ditto to freezer.

And yeah, seriously working on these - interesting, haven't bought food in 10 days
.

(6)Acceptance of DST. Seriously, it was lovely at 6.30 this morning. Dawn!!! But dreading the darkness descending at five-ish tonight. Nobody has every explained why this is necessary apart from, drum roll - schoolchildren! Could they not adapt school hours? And speaking of....why this unearthly summer break?

(7)What does happen if the USA becomes Drumpf Nation? I don't think I've ever seen such a democratic travesty in my lifetime as this current US election process.

That's <30> for now.

    My greatest fear is that it won't. 8 years of the Clinton Crime Machine will be the end of us!

    1. What crimes has she been convicted of Moe?
      And I can't begin to list the charges pending for him. Plus his misogyny, racism and intolerance.

    2. If you look at Moe's profile, it explains a lot. We have lots of them here in Montana....'the guvment is comin' to take our guns!!' etc. Locally, we call them nuts.

    4. Mr Fish,

      I'd say the locals probably call you a Liberal and wish you'd move back to Kalifornee.

  2. I like the way you write; and know your Liberal/Progressive mind set; I shouldn't have taken the bait on the Drumpf comment. So,,,,, on that note. Have a great day.

  5. I have been doing the same types of things, a long with a lot of thinking, which usually either nets me trouble or a foul mood these days. My larder is full, too. At this point, I wish I had a bunker to hide in.

  6. Trump flat terrifies me. The Fox propaganda machine has convinced people Hillary Clinton is a criminal and his followers willfully overlook everything horrific about Trump.

    2. Malcolm Gladwell on The National the other night nailed it: flat out women-hate from Trump and his supporters. He said she has survived decades of this, and her election win won't stop it. These are the Burning Times.

    3. Yes, and I am reminded of what happened in Europe in the middle ages when they burned a couple of million of us.

  8. The world is waiting with bated breath for the outcome. No point speculating. The latest revelations about the emails not being toxic may perhaps help the other prospect!

    2. Yes, yes. And the FACT he cheated on his taxes to the millions -is somehow proof he's a good businessman.

      I am not so terrified of Trump as I am of the American citizen. What does their support for such a monster say about Average America? Chilling.

    3. Yes, I think it a massive wakeup call Anon. And perhaps that's a good thing.

  10. Every six months the clocks go back and forth. Each time there are people asking why this tedious business is necessary. Each time there's a deafening silence from the authorities.

    Anxiously waiting to see if there are enough gullible, misguided individuals to vote Trump into the White House.

  12. I agree with Nick on the DST thing. The same silent authorities have created the mess that the USA finds itself in.I have wondered what it would be like to see a great nation humbled and finished as a world power.Maybe I will see it.Remember the old Chinese curse:"may you live in interesting times". Methinks that they are already here.

  13. The only "good" thing to come out of Trump's disgusting run is that you know realize who the racist bigots are in your midst...Sadly, they are not all (most, but not all) backwoods hillbillies. They are educated, professional people who support this man, and that I find absolutely disgraceful. And I will not forget, once this election is over, who of my neighbors, friends, etc., stood up for him. It has been an eye-opener, to say the least.

  15. Well it happened! Seemingly his first 100 days will be spent putting putting big red lines through all that's happened over the past few years.
    Have had a long look at your 'books read 2016'. Making lists for next year. Decided to open my eyes to other authors and genre
    Take care

    1. Books are good. I love books. I'm currently reading "People of The Book" and Pants if you're reading this I recommend. The protagonist has much the same quirky writing style as your good self. :)

  16. Has been so disappointing to realize there are even more people in U.S. Who supported this Prez-elect than I believed would. The world is going upside down and backwards!

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
