Cafe du Monde
any fun plans today?
No, just work later on. 😦 I’m already thinking about dinner though! 🙂 I bought some fresh crab cakes and Mayport Shrimp. I think I’m going to do the shrimp with fettucine and broccoli and mix in some alfredo sauce! Crab cakes for appetizer. It’ll motivate me to get work over with quickly and head home.
How about you? You sound busy for the next few with your NOLA project?
It’s the following week we are in NOLA.
I have some gardening to do, transplanting datura plants, and making a seed bed in the ground, I’m just going to chuck tons of zinna, cosmos, marigolds in a bed, and let what ever sprouts grow there.
I’m heating some pepperoni pizza rolls for lunch…haute cuisine…HA!
Beau is making arrangements that will take 6ft pieces of tall orange ginger, leaving only the top leaf, like a javelin.
He also is using the beautiful varigated leave of wild cane (I grow in our yard).
it can grow 15 ft, I hide a telephone pole with it. He cuts a slit in the leaf’s end and threads the point through the leaf making a circle
He’s trimming banana leaves to use just the purple vein that runs thru it.
With bird of paradise and liatris the arrangements are stunning
Lovely! I need some of that variegated wild cane! I love the bird of paradise, too. I can’t wait to see the end result.
I have plenty, to cut you a piece of root. It thrives as a weed here.
It amuses me it grows along the road, and then you see MINI MANSIONS around the lake we are by, having stands of wild cane included in their tailored landscaped yards.
It’s like troughs of horsetail reeds, florists like to sell, and it grows EVERY WHERE near us as a weed.
We have a wild rose that just showed up!
Supreme Court denies motion to stop same-sex marriages in California.
I’m off to have some lunch. SYL, BiB! And sorry for the slow replies, my laptop is acting rather wonky. Don’t know what’s up with that?!
Do you know what this place needs? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjsUf_oIgp0
my fave prog is just starting.
Prog? you mean Mrs. Bucket?
now that’s talent—-eat your heart out Mishie!
Too much fun! This reminds me of many nights at the pubs during the International Ski Competitions. The German teams were a hoot, but the Irish were most definitely the liveliest! Good times.
Walken, YES!, Ferrell, no…
I like Ferrell on this sketch.
I like him in Anchorman.
I think ths place needs more trumpets

They are re-running Meet The Press with Jim DeMint and Ralph Reed and Rachel Maddow.
Sorry—gotta work on something BBL, with a new page.
The senates proposed immigration bill, looks alot more bad then good to me… This is what we get with “bi-partisanship”, something loaded down with reich-wing badness.
I doubt Boehner will even bring Immigration to a vote. The senate bill sucks, except it would STOP for 13 years,12 million people who are undocumented, having the constant fear of being deported.
I don’t know what he’ll do, it may be too tempting to resist, those like him in his party know they need Hispanic voters desperately, and the desire to throw all that money at the further militarization of the border… but no I don’t think they’ll pass anything regardless the reich-wing is too filed with ultra-extremists now.
The only thing worse than the Senate Comprehensive Immigration Bill, is to do NOTHING. Dreamers left with NO Chance of college, and their families continuing to live in the shadows,being underpayed, being cheated from SS benefits, they have to pay into (under aliases) to work in the USA.
Our crepe myrtles are all beginning to bloom, they range in color from pink, to fushia, a vibrant rose color, to violet red
Here is the wild rose that showed up a couple of weeks ago. http://www.flickr.com/photos/85720654@N02/9177913898/sizes/l/in/photostream/
nice, I think that is a cultivated red tea rose climber, I have one very similar.
or a knock out rose
Those knock outs are very nice to look at, but a real rose needs scent! Give me the old-fashioned ones even with their issues any day.
I like a nicely scented rose, and I grew great tea roses in MN, where you had to tip the plant under ground and spray it with dormancy spray (called the Minnesota Tip.)
There’s a red white striped tea rose calle Scentimental
tropicana has a nice scent too.
I like your fence!
Hah, thanks. We need to replace it.
It looks nice just as it is! imho.
Though I like this style of fence where the boards are bowed.
I know it might be wasted breath, but I’ve started trying to redirect the outrage on the DOMA and Prop 8 threads to a topic that really does affect everybody – the Citizens United and VRA decisions.
Those decisions have REAL impact for all voters. Marriage Equality is important, and I believe inevitable, but the decisions are being used as a distraction from the real issues that are affecting the direction of the political landscape.
Equality is important for all – inequality imposed on any segment of society degrades all of society in a subtle and insidious fashion. To allow, let alone legislate, inequality in any aspect of society is offensive to me and I celebrate the giant step forward towards equality for all in the DOMA and Prop 8 decisions this week.
However, if the conservatives really want to express their outrage over court decisions then VRA and Citizens United are the issues they should be going after. Marriage Equality does not impact the people complaining about the Prop 8 and DOMA decisions except in that it eliminates the ghettoization of a segment of the population – and elimination of such segregation is good for everybody.
Of course, the trolls with the “neener, neener” responses don’t get a reply at all.
Hi, RF! I need to read the ruling from the Citizens United case. I know a little about its impact, I’ve been reading about it ever since that ruling came down, but I want to be on firmer ground knowing the ins and outs of it.
Hi, neb. Be sure to check back on the start of this – notes made in the margins of a railroad document that was filed.
Hi, CG! I’ll look into this. I plan on making a bookmark folder. Now does the railroad document refer to corporate personhood?
Yes, it set the precedent.
Ok, I’ll start from there. I know I will have a lot of catching up to do.
You do realise to be a real Teabagger, your IQ score has to be less than your shoe size, they would not know, what you are talking about RF.
Agree. The citizens united, I believe is just another step in a very wrong direction where money determines elections (ever increasing secret private and corporate money). The whole problem in the “merican” political nightmare today comes down to 2 issues both perverting the election process: campaign finance, and gerrymandering. Until the money (“private”, secret money) is gotten out of the election finance system, until we have a sane system of public finance, and until the gerrymandering is cut out, like the cancers these 2 issues are… we will not have a sane working Democracy. We will continue down this long dark road to total corporate-fascism.
Greetings! I hope all is well.
If you haven’t checked out the show “Continuum” yet, please do so. I think it is a great science fiction show that is hitting the right buttons right now. Here is some background- City Protective Services (CPS) Protector Kiera Cameron is a law enforcement officer in 2077. In 2077 there is a terrorist attack that destroys a building, killing thousands. It was conducted by a terrorist group called Liber8. In the future the world is under the control of a technological police state, or as Wikipedia states: “Under the corporatocratic and oligarchic dystopia of the North American Union and its “Corporate Congress”, life goes on in apparent freedom under a technologically advanced high-surveillance police state.”
The terrorists who pulled off the attack are arrested and sentenced to execution. Unbeknownst to Protector Kiera Cameron, each terrorist has in their possession a piece to a sphere that when joined together is a time-machine, mixed with electricity it will send those within the blast radius when activated by electricity back into the past.
Season one follows Kiera’s attempt to track down LIber8 in modern Vancouver. Being a Protector, Cameron is equipped with high grade technology, her bio-suit allows her to fend off bullets, fire and also allows her to become invisible. Upon arriving in modern day Vancouver, the man who created the suit and the systems used in the future for the high-tech police state is a teen who discovers her suits signal and makes contact with her.
Liber8 is like Occupy Wall Street gone violent, the theme of the revolution is to prevent the corporate technological police state from being created. The members of Liber8 are highly skilled individuals and they have a plan to start the revolution to change the future in the past. Protector Cameron wants to stop Liber8 and return to the future to be with her family.

Q’Plah, my warrior friend!
Q’Plah! Most Honourable, Fi! How are you doing on this wonderful day? How is the hubby? How is Angus?
Angus is in bed, he’s had a busy day.
Hubby is on his way back from fishing in the Lake district.
I’m fine, tired now, not too long before I go to bed.
How are you and Millie?
It is good to hear that all is well on your side of the pond! I’m doing good, just trying to determine what I want to make for dinner, something will present itself. Though, I have no propane left for the grill.
Millie is doing great, she was her usual demanding self earlier, scolding me for not filling her bowl with enough cat food, then ordering me to give her treats. She is ow resting, but soon she will be back up and ordering me around.
Oh, were you gonna BBQ tonight, stick something in the oven or even better, takeaway!
I was thinking about making a steak, or a hamburger? Perhaps a few Italian sausages, but I have no propane and I don’t know if I want to run and get some. It would be nice not really going through the steps to make something large tonight, perhaps something simple, pancakes sound like a good alternative.
Sounds good to me.
I don’t have any bacon though 😦
I’m for the so-called “terrorists”! DEATH to the corprocracy!!!! Sounds like the sick world we seem to be headed toward.
Hi HH, are you there, just been watching Top Gear, they drove the length of NZ’s top Island, it was beautiful!
Again for HH.
Take Care, Most Honourable!
