    Good Morning! Tweety. . . Didn't I just "see" you on Facebook?!? L O L! Thanks for starting today's "Good Morning" thread. Good to read that you're catching up on much-deserved sleep. Hope today is a relaxing day for you, too. Hi Joe! You just sent your post moments before I hit my "send" button! L O L! Good to read that you had a productive day, yesterday. Looking forward to seeing photos of your cross-stitching project once completed. (Hopefully we can figure out how to share those photos here on AN!) Recently woke up. JUST finished drinking First Coffee. Gotta get ready for church soon. I want to get there early, today, to set up an additional lavalier microphone that I'm donating to the church. I was told that people are having difficulties hearing the Pastor(s). There are already two microphones that are used, one on the alter and one on the lectern. This 3rd lavalier microphone will be used solely for the Pastor (or person presiding over the church service). After church, I'm coming home and rest before going to see the musical that Amy is in. This 2:00 PM show is the last performance of this musical-comedy. Looking forward to seeing Amy perform on stage. She's really talented! Did additional editing to the dance video. I'm working on the "Camera 2" video files. "Camera 2" was used for close-ups. Gotta say that the "footage" looks really great! It's just that doing the simple color-corrections that needs to be done is very time-consuming. I'm only a hobbyist with this video-recording/video-editing thing. I'm sure that someone who does this stuff for a living is 10 times as fast as I am! L O L! I only do a few dance scenes at a time before I need to give my eyes (and back) a rest. Tonight, I think I'll take a break from video-editing and focus on composing another instrumental piece. THAT whole composing/sequencing process also takes a whole lot of time and creative thought. My goal was to do one composition a month. So far, I've done just three this year. These compositions are my Holiday Present to family and friends. I'll burn several dozen CDs to give as gifts. Well. . . got to get going to start the day! Cheers! Ted

    Morning Tweety Productive day yesterday. Managed to dodge the periodic rains and got in a hike and lunch with dad. Got all of the cooking done. Made some more progress on cross stitch. Svengoolie was pretty good for a change. And I stayed up to watch Mr Spock being attacked by a jello mold Today have church and little else on the schedule. Likely won't be outside until the afternoon, lots of strong thunderstorms headed this way Gotta get hold of the cat sitter to see if she's free when I'm in Madison next month. Will be my first vacation at this new job
  6. Good Morning! Had a nice quiet Saturday, mostly catching up on sleep from working 3 12's in a row and staying late Friday. Managed to make it to the gym. Not much on the agenda today either. Hope everyone has a great day!

    In context it broke the attendance record there, but so I personally while not "impressed" am a bit dismayed he can still draw what is my opinion a huge cheering adoring crowd in a state that is in the bottom ten population wise surrounded by Maine and Vermont also in the bottom ten.

    The Congressional Thread

    Indicted GOP congressman sends racist campaign mailer while out on bail Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), awaiting his federal public corruption trial, sent a vile Islamophobic campaign mailer attacking his likely Democratic opponent. Hunter sent out a campaign mailer linking his likely Democratic opponent, Ammar Campa-Najjar, to a 1972 terrorist attack on Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics allegedly carried out by Campa-Najjar's grandfather. The mailer insinuates that Campa-Najjar, a Christian who was born after his grandfather died, along with Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who are both Muslim, are linked to terrorists and a threat to America. "[T]hese three radical Democrats want you to forget their anti-semitism or family-terrorist ties!" the mailer from the Hunter campaign says... ... Hunter was arrested last year on allegations that he illegally used hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign funds to live a lavish personal lifestyle including international family vacations and even flying his family's pet rabbit across the country. Hunter is currently still serving in Congress while out on bail and awaiting his trial. In a humiliating turn of events, Hunter's wife, who was also his campaign manager, cut a plea deal with prosecutors and agreed to testify against him... https://shareblue.com/duncan-hunter-racist-mailer-bail/ Regardless of what you think about the new Muslim members of congress Ammar Campa-Najja is a different person. https://www.campacampaign.com/meet-ammar

    It was a Tweet she made in 2012 referring to how Israeli's conducted themselves in Gaza. It's been haunting her since her election as well as other statement's that are deemed anti-Israel. I really have to wonder what her agenda is? Why does she want to go to Israel and meet with only Palestinians and tour only Palestinian areas. Congresspeople in the past have done both Jewish and Palestinian. We might have welcomed Iranian diplomats to America, but we certainly didn't welcome the ones calling us "The Great Satan" so again, I can't blame Israel for making this decision. Of course I support your right to have another opinion about it.

    I am so very sorry Tweety. I was clumsy in that post. I like and respect you. You never said people don't have a right to their own opinions. I just means to post my thoughts. Israel is not the United States. They are their own country. But they do not have a constitution. They claim the be a "Jewish State." Please read the article in my long post and the one in this link: https://ifamericansknew.org/cur_sit/witness.html Is Israel free of unkind treatment of it's Palestinian citizens? If so I am wrong. But if just part what my American Jewish friends who have visited Israel have told me they saw first hand, and the writings of others is true, the way he government of that country acts opposite the Golden Rule, although "Love thy neighbor" has been a tenet of Judaism for centuries. Does "neighbor" not include the idea that even Palestinians deserve human rights? My dad's best friend, an Orthodox Jew, who I've known longer than Israel has existed, told be he thinks some of the treatment of some Palestinians is "evil". He has been saying that since I've been an adult. He said he has argued with people in Israel, including a rabbi. He still went there almost every year until he got too old to comfortably travel. Guess what? If he remains healthy you will probably be able to hear him play guitar or banjo on the Miami boardwalk on Sundays next summer. His name is Irv. He was a plumber in Chicago for decades, and put the first running water and flush toilets in many Chicago buildings. Irv is now 98 years old! Here he was with the Cubs Pep Band. Irv is the one on Banjo.

    You have known me as a poster here probably 20 years, I'm quite disappointed that you are asking me this question. I don't think once in those 20 years have I ever questioned anyone's right to have an opinion. Not once.

    “Israel has hypnotized the world. May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” is "partisan political pettiness" to you?

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    I understand why some Americans, including Jewish Americans are conflicted and concerned about whether to support Israel 100%. Don't we all have a right to our opinions? I, like most Americans are glad for our First Amendment guaranteeing freedoms concerning religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition. I am glad Congress is forbidden from promoting one religion over others and also from restricting an individual's practice of their religion. I am glad the First Amendment guarantees freedom of expression by prohibiting Congress from restricting the press or the rights of individuals to to speak freely. I am also glad for the right of citizens to peacefully assemble and to petition our government. Of course Israel is their country. By claiming to be the "State of the Jewish People" I think it should be expected that some Jewish Americans may be conflicted.

    Domestic Terrorism

    Four black teens were fundraising for their high school football team. A white woman held them at gunpoint. Police arrived at Kelly's house Wednesday, Aug. 7 at around 10 a.m., responding to a report of "suspicious persons," to find the four boys on the ground, with Kelly, who is white, standing over them with a gun... ... According to the police report, Kelly's neighbor said she could hear the boys playing outside, but said "nothing out of the ordinary" was taking place. Another neighbor said the boys appeared to be playing hide-and-seek and laughing in the street. In their statement, the boys, who are all between the ages of 15 and 16, described being chased by a dog near Kelly's house. The owner then approached the boys and apologized, promising the dog would not bite. They laughed about the situation and played with the dog before continuing to Kelly's house. The boys said they were "scared to even talk" to Kelly after she called them liars and threatened to shoot them if they moved from the ground. They said she lectured them after police arrived and insisted they look her in the eyes and shake her hand. Wynne School District Superintendent Carl Easley said students participate in fundraising "every year," but the district is considering stopping door-to-door fundraisers... https://www.cbsnews.com/news/jerri-kelly-arkansas-woman-held-four-black-teens-fundraising-high-school-football-gunpoint-wynne-county-2019-08-17/

    I don't need to read up on how much financial help Israel received from US taxpayers via Congress. But they are also not a colony of the United States doing our bidding. I like this line from Maher " "And Congresswoman Omar has said things like, 'It's all about the Benjamins,' 'Israel has hypnotized the world,' 'May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.' She apologized for it, but it's out there," Is it any wonder they took Trump's bait and kept them out? Clearly not allowing such an antagonistic person in makes sense. We can disagree. I will say that I am more anti-Israel and their policies towards the Palestinians myself. Trump is always touting that countries should do more and take less aid from the US, but Israel doesn't seem to be in this category.

    I might agree perhaps the President should have stayed out of it, but Israel owes them no right to roll out the red carpet either. The lead headline news over at Fox. https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/maher-slams-dems-supporting-anti-israel-bds-movement-a-bulls-purity-test

    Good Morning - Joe - Good to read that all is going well with your exercising and healthy eating. BCgradnurse - Certainly will hold your Mom and you in warm thoughts. (((Hugs))) Just woke up. Again. Was up for a good part of the night doing the video editing thing. Got lots done. Got lots more to do still. Went back to bed around 4:30 AM as I was falling asleep in front of the computer. Again. Got a bit of a headache, and I know why. Haven't hand First Coffee yet. So, there is an immediate Plan of Action after I'm done typing here. L O L! I have no real set plans for today except to do more video editing. IF the weather turns out being nice today, I might either do some mowing (whine!) or video-recording of pretty outdoor places (Yeah!!). It's supposed to be hot, humid with chances of rain, though. Again. Looking forward to tomorrow. After the church thing I'm FINALLY going to see Amy perform. Going with friends, as mentioned yesterday. It'll be the last performance of this particular show. As already mentioned, Amy is looking forward to having this particular chapter finished. (Yawn. . . ) Think I'll go get First Coffee. . . Hope all have a pleasant Saturday, today! Ted

    Morning Decent day at work. More changes to process, will likely mean more work but I can adapt. With jobs like this adapatability is the key, keeping flexible until processes become established. There's usually a good bit of turnover until that point is reached too. Exercised and did my meditation when I came home, also did the laundry since I had time Today the rain is holding off until later, so I'm headed out for a hike. Will also meet dad for lunch. Svengoolie has Village of the Damned which is supposed to be pretty good Have been trying to determine if my weight loss is plateauing, but hard to tell, it's been pretty variable the last few weeks. I've done better than expected, which is good

    He pushed the narrative that the cops were racist. Personally, I think he is racist. But that is a irrelevant argument at this point.
