April Fools Day is canceled this year, because no prank is greater than the joke that is running this country right now.






FOIA Reveals Fauci And Collins-Led NIH Deleted COVID Data At Wuhan University Researcher’s Request


"....Documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request and lawsuit by the Virginia-based Empower Oversight Whistleblowers and Researchers revealed the United States National Institutes of Health agreed to delete SARS-CoV-2 genetic sequencing.

The Gateway Pundit alleged that the NIH secretly deleted the COVID-19 genetic sequencing data provided them by the Wuhan Institute of Laboratory when the pandemic began. The media outlet stressed that the deleted data seemingly support claims that the COVID-19 virus was man-made, as earlier reported. It also links to the gain of function research conducted by the Wuhan lab that brought much spotlight on President Joe Biden's Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci.

As per The Epoch Times, the EO documents mentioned former NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins and Fauci, who is also the National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Disease Director. The media outlet stressed that the documents reveal Fauci's active participation in the decision-making and discussions.

"Staff at the National Library of Medicine (NLM), which hosts the Sequence Read Archive (SRA), have reviewed the submitting investigator's request to withdraw the data. These SARS-CoV-2 sequences were submitted for posting in SRA in March 2020 and subsequently requested to be withdrawn by the submitting investigator in June 2020. The requestor indicated the sequence information had been updated, was being submitted to another database, and wanted the data removed from SRA to avoid version control issues," the statement read.

"The submitting investigator published relevant information about these sequences by preprint in March, 2020 and in a journal in June, 2020. Submitting investigators hold the rights to their data and can request withdrawal of the data," it added.

Meanwhile, Empower Oversight released an analysis of the FOIA documents they obtained. The 23-paged analysis presented seven key findings including evidence indicating expert advice given by Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Virologist Jesse Bloom to Collins and Fauci. The advice pointed out that the deleted sequences are suggestive of the begginings of the pandemic outside Wuhan's Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market.

Part of the key findings was the NIH's initial decline of the request made by the Wuhan research to remove the sequences. EO stressed that it took another request from the researcher for a second set of sequence to be removed before the NIH conceded. At that time, NIH even offered to delete both sets of sequences.

The said sequences were named "Submission ID SUB7554642" aka "BioProject ID PRJNA637497," which was requested to be removed on June 5, 2020 due to an error in submission; and "Submission ID is SUB7147304," which was requested to be deleted on June 15, 2020. NIH agreed to delete the genetic sequences on June 16, 2020.

Another key finding of EO involved NIH's misleading policy on the removal of sequences. The research company cited an internal email an NIH official sent, which reminds the occasions data can be removed from the SRA. The internal email said that NIH will only remove data if the submitter gave notification that "the submission was in error" and not in cases of an "erroneous submission." 










Charity Watch rates Catholic Relief Services with an A+ rating.

Today's post is rather unintentional.  I honestly didn't expect to post at all.  However, I was skimming through some social media and saw a post by the organization Catholic Relief Services.

This is what caught my attention - go ahead and read and I'll explain in a moment.


What caught my attention was not that they were just an organization throwing money at a situation or lining their own pockets - or trying to 'help' for the attention, but that this story pointed out something that is sorely needed:  instruction and education.

I started to ponder a bit, while I sipped my chai tea....  these are groups of people without the knowledge or instruction to do something as simple as 'save'.  How to sell needed items at their local markets, and then manage the money.  We learn that here by our culture, our families and our schools.  In many countries there is no culture of saving, of putting education at a priority, or how (like the article states) to prepare healthy meals for their children...  we have that knowledge saturating our society.  They do not.

I realized that organizations like Catholic Relief Services and other charities that actually go past just throwing money at a situation to get the press, are helping in ways that are long lasting.  That will be taught to next generations as the children now grow up with parents who are learning about nutrition, finances, saving, education and more.

It's also good to look up a charities ratings - this one in particular gets a A+.

If you need a trustworthy source to donate to the Ukraine families in crisis, this looks to be a good one.

From their website: CRS

Your help is urgently needed for families from Ukraine.

More than 3.8 million people are fleeing for their lives to neighboring countries—leaving behind homes, jobs and everything familiar.

There is great risk of additional suffering both within Ukraine and for those who are fleeing to neighboring countries for safety. CRS and Caritas partners on the ground and need immediate support to meet both ongoing needs as the situation intensifies.

With your gift, families in Ukraine and the surrounding countries receive food, clothing, transport to safe shelter, cash assistance, counseling and care for children.

Years of conflict along the eastern border had already displaced 1.3 million people from their homes and claimed 14,000 lives and now 2.3 million people have fled Ukraine. Almost ninety percent of the refugees are women and children. Throughout this time, Caritas Ukraine, with support from CRS, has been providing emergency relief and recovery—and now help is needed more than ever.

The situation there is rapidly unfolding, and we could not do this work without your support. When you donate, you provide immediate assistance for your Ukrainian sisters and brothers affected by this crisis.


Yes, you can say 'gay' in Florida.  (I'm rolling my eyes.) I've heard a lot of inaccurate information and snarky remarks and downright ugly screaming and going off by certain groups of people. Many of them have no idea what they are talking about.

If you don't understand the details, then it's simple - it's not appropriate for schools to teach 4 year olds, or  6 or 7 year olds about sexual orientation or gender identity.  Heck, I don't think it's up to the schools to do that at any age.  If they would go back to basics (that aren't being taught anymore or taught half-assed) like history, math, reading, sociology, economics, etc. this country would be in a much better place 10 years from now as those kids hit the age of starting careers and adult life.

It's regarding pre-K through grade 3.  Little children.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Monday signed into law HB 1557, a measure that forbids instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity to children in grades pre-K through grade 3.

The legislation states that “classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.”







Good Morning Coffee Friends -

Today I'm just going to caffeinate, and hope for the best.  

I used to live Southern California and honestly, if it weren't for the people taking it over and the insane leadership of the Left, I'd love it.  I'd still be there.  A little piece of my heart is still there - battered and broken and aghast... but still there.

If I could have lived there when my Aunts and Uncles were raising their kids back in the 1960's and 1970's there, oh, that would have been awesome.  So freaking awesome.  But no - I was born a couple decades too late and by then the craziness, the culture-shift and the stupidity was already setting in.  We got out of there when we realized we had to do better for our future children.  

I was 7 months pregnant when we made a trip to see relatives elsewhere in the US... when we got back on the plane to return home I was in tears.  By the time that same baby was 4 1/2 months old we were on the road in a moving truck and getting out of Dodge.  Yep.  That fast.  Our eyes were opened and we were gone.

But I always keep my eyes on the news because we still have friends and family there. 

Bills happening in California....  Covid shots may be required, lowers age of vax consent to 12 years without parental consent or knowledge; prohibits any person or entity to making any statements that the government deems untrue (this reeks of communism...), school nurses could give all your child's health and medical information to third parties without parental knowledge, and a few more.   



Human Traffickers Acting As Pastors To Abduct Children On Ukrainian Border



".........As the war continues in Ukraine, refugees hope to leave the country for safety yet rampant cases of human trafficking at the Ukrainian borders added to plague the refugees.

The regional manager for Europe of Orphan's Promise, Natasha Boom, told CBN News about the situation at the Polish border where many of the Ukrainian refugees chose to flee from the Russian invasion of Ukraine. "It was pure chaos," she described the border.

Boom explained that "Human traffickers are despicable, taking advantage of the chaos and confusion and posing as pastors and aid workers to abduct these vulnerable children and youth."

The trafficking issue was the "biggest prayer request at the moment," she said during a special live prayer event Friday hosted by CBN News.

"We heard reports on the ground this week regarding traffickers pretending to be pastors and turning up with mini busses and coaches," Boom said. Some of the border guards also claimed "There are traffickers here, but how do we know? There are thousands of people." As the situation got difficult, she asked the people to pray for these "unimaginable evils to be thwarted."

"That is one of my biggest prayer requests ... that this evil can be exposed for what it is...that children would be spared," she said.

Boom recounted the stories she had seen at the Polish border including the story of a mother who had tied a rope around her girls for fear of them being taken.

"This one mother...she had a rope tied around her waist with four little girls probably under the age of five wrapped around it because there [is] risk of traffickers and she didn't want to fall asleep with her children there," she said.

"The border guards were some of the most incredible people I met. Some of them haven't slept because they wanted to stay awake to protect the children," she continued."







I managed to stay home Saturday and Sunday - on purpose.  It was partly because I didn't want to deal with the crowds and traffic of weekend errand runners and shoppers, but partly because I was loathe to spend money.  

Even though we really, really need a few a things.  My plan was to wait and see if I would have Monday off (I did) and do it then.  I still didn't want to spend money we didn't really have - BUT I knew we needed a few things and I would try to stick to those items.

And I did.

And the funny thing was that I had this little meme from social media to share today and it is SO TRUE.   



Funny because... that is pretty much exactly what I spent by going to two (2) stores.  Home Depot and the grocery store.  




 Government Health Advice over the last 2 years: 

Kamala and Joe are such a huge, huge embarrassment for our country.





Joe Biden blocked the way for the first black female to be on the Supreme Court; and said that food shortages were a leadership problem - not a shortage problem.


I'm here... with coffee.  My second, freshly brewed.... and hoping it will take a slight edge off this intense, awful headache I woke up with.

Have you pondered where all the batteries for the cars and trucks that are going 'green' will end up?
Do you know where the huge wind turbines end up after they are no longer good after just a short 20 year lifespan?  

You should wonder.
And then you should look it up.

And then ponder over coffee the fact that almost 50 million tons of wind turbines are being buried in mass graves and they are going to be there for about 400 years.

Green.  Yep. Green indeed.




Joe Biden killed the nomination for the first black female to be on the Supreme Court.
Republicans nominated Janice Rogers Brown off the US Court of Appeals - opening the way for the Supreme Court. BIDEN blocked her.

$15 for making french fries?  Free handouts called stimulus payments?
And now you complain about inflation.  Interesting. Do they teach anything in high school anymore?

Biden said in 2020 that food shortages were a LEADERSHIP problem.
That didn't age well.

It's Just the Coffee Talking: I drank my morning coffee early, outside in the cold, looking off into the woods... it was almost like mentally camping.

Good Morning!  

Usually I have Friday mornings 'off' so I don't have to rush out the door, and instead, I was snuggled down in the covers of my warm bed this morning. 

Not that it was 'crazy' cold - but it had gotten down to about 36 or 37 degrees outside and I don't have the heat turned on on the main floor of the house right now, as we are at that 'odd' time of Spring when the weather can't decide between 29 degrees or 70 degrees.  Sometimes it's easier to turn it off completely for 2 weeks and just dress up or down accordingly.  

Anyway!  Where was I?

Oh!  In bed.

I had been up since about 4:30 am (couldn't get back to sleep) so I had been reading but by 5:45 am I really, really was wishing I COULD go back to sleep.  Instead, I was thinking.

I laid in bed and watched the sun just starting to rise, the birds were getting really loud.  It was also early enough that all my neighbors were in their homes getting ready for school and work so it was relatively silent except for the calling and screeching of all the various birds.

I was considering whether or not I really, truly wanted to grab the dog, a little food and my winter sleeping bag into my car and take off for a primitive camp this weekend... when I realized that if I put a sweatshirt and puffy vest on over my fleece pajama pants, and sat outside looking into the woods, it could feel like my first morning coffee if I were camping.


And... done.



The dog was confused.  But she was game to hang with me.

After about 30 minutes of freezing fingers, sipping coffee, talking to the dog and scrolling through my phone a bit after my coffee was gone; I could hear neighbor noise starting. 

Voices, slamming car doors, cars driving off to work and school...  around 6:47 the school bus comes through the neighborhood, so once I heard that, I figured I was cold enough anyway and went inside.

Brrr.  I was chilled!  My toes and fingers were stiff with cold. 

But it was a good idea.  

In the early morning silence, the birds waking, and being careful to only look towards the fire ring or the back yard woods (not neighboring homes through the trees to the sides of the house) I was able to immerse myself in the chilly cold morning moment and mentally go camping.  

After that, it felt really, really good to have the comforts of a warm house to go into instead of the tent, and get dressed in my bathroom instead of the crinkly tent floor, and to turn on my space heater to warm up my numb fingers - without having to fight to start a fire. 

It's like I already woke up in the woods, had coffee, got dressed, drove home and I'm now ready to decide what to accomplish today.

It's Just the Coffee Talking: I think I've only had McDonalds coffee maybe 3 times in my life until last weekend. But I did buy a box of McCafe k-cups this week.


Good Morning Coffee Friends...

I've got 1 1/2 minutes to type before my 'last alarm to throw clothes on and get out the door in time' goes off.  That's ok... I don't have much to say.

Last night before falling asleep some of my last thoughts and prayers were;  How did we as a world get this crazy so.... fast?  And if it's this bad now, I can only imagine what it will be 2 years, 4 years from now if this continues.

Anyway...  COFFEE talk.  I have a different kind I'm using this week (and probably next... until the box runs out).   I know it's going to sound insane to some of you, but I'm drinking the McDonalds coffee k-cups;   McCafe k-cups.

Here is how that went down.

So, I had to do a fast 4-states-in-one-day and back again trip last weekend.
We met some family members at a McDonalds in the middle of nowhere.  I ordered black coffee.

I don't usually eat (or drink) fast food (or restaurants) so it's been perhaps 15 years or more since I've had McDonalds coffee.  And it was... fine.  Not great, but not bad.  Lighter than I'm used to with my typical dark roasts.

Skip ahead to me having to run to the store for coffee the next day.  My regular go-to was not on sale and is sadly, expensive. My back-up go to that I usually buy because it's 'fine' and typically on sale and a pretty good price, wasn't on sale... and I'm kind of tired of it anyway.

But McCafe was there.
And a fairly good price for a box of k-cups.
Since I had just had it at McDonalds I knew what I was getting into so I bought that one.  Good deal for the money at the time.

And that is how I'm drinking McDonalds coffee this week....   McCafe K-cups.   100% Arabica coffee is from the rich soils and mountainous regions of Central and South America.  

It's lighter and... brighter than my typicals but it's a good morning choice, and easy to drink.

Not sure if it's going to be a regular in this household, but it's good for now until the budget gets some wiggle room in it.







It's Just the Coffee Talking: Wanderlust

Good Morning Coffee Friends....

Ah, wanderlust is hitting hard. So many reasons I've not been able to go... anywhere or do... anything for 2 years now.   My heart has been wanting to hit the road with my tent.  It's not really feasible for a few reasons - all of which are valid - but that doesn't make it easier.

Last night I talked to my favorite uncle on the phone.  He mentioned he is waiting to hear back if he's going to be managing a thousand head of cattle this summer out in the Dakotas.   It would just be him and the cattle out there, along with the personal horses he'd be using to watch over the herd and keep watch over the land.  If he does end up managing it, I'm sorely tempted to make a trip out that way for a visit.  With a couple thousand acres, I could pitch my tent up and have some solitude under the stars while also enjoying a visit with my uncle.

On paper (so to speak) it doesn't look like it's at all possible; money, other situations, my job... but it doesn't keep my mind from drifting that way once in a while.

Back to reality though... the mail just came (I heard the truck) and I know there is a letter I'm dreading in it, so I best just rip the band-aid off and go out and get the mail and deal with it promptly.  Else it will eat away at me all day until I do.

It's just the coffee talking again..........

It's Just the Coffee Talking: Lots of little unexpected's during yesterday's errands


Good Morning Coffee Friends....

Yesterday was a day full of errands but also gave me little twists and turns to expect the unexpected.

My main trip was to return the Direct TV equipment.  I had to go the UPS store to do so, as they have a contract with them.  

You simply drop it off - they look up your name in their (the UPS Store's) computer system.  They weigh it and pack it and ship it off.  Very quick and simple... but you have to make sure you go to the correct UPS store.  

That was my first unexpected.  

I had a robo-computer phone call that we had a refill for a hydrocortisone cream to pick up at the pharmacy.  Must be one of Mr. Coffee's so I ok'd the robo-call and I swung through drive-thru to get it during my errand running; put the bag aside and finished more errands before returning home hours later to find it wasn't a 'refill' as expected.  We've used a cortisone cream... this was a bottle?  Of 'lotion' and very liquidy.  We don't actually need the cream right now as the rash on his face had gone away.  I suppose it will be nice to have in the future, but I have no idea why we had a refill of liquid 'lotion'.  Unless they were low on supplies and supplemented what they had.  

(This was an issue last month when we needed a prescription and they said they were out.  The delivery truck hadn't even had any during their last shipment.  They said there were many medical supplies that were in short supply.  Other local pharmacies didn't have any either.  They fulfilled ours because the pharmacist knew for a fact another customer who had a refill for it, wasn't going to use it as they were 'done' with it so they used that one to fill ours.)   

So, possibly a substitution?

I don't know.  It's the same strength and product; just a different form.

That was a little unexpected.

My next stop was the post office to mail a package.

As I approached the doors, there was a sign announcing their computer system for payment was down and all transactions must be in cash.

No wonder they weren't very busy on a Monday.  No one really carries cash anymore!  Ha ha.

I don't either.  But I did have $9 in my billfold from a return I had to do a couple months ago and I had another $12 in the car that I had tucked away for emergency gas money on one of my cross country road trips.  I ran out to the car, grabbed the cash and went back in.

The package was $16 to mail (it was just a pair of shoes a house guest accidentally left at our home last week, but DANG it is SO expensive to mail ANYTHING anymore).   

Got it done... just didn't expect to have to have almost $20 cash to do so.

My 3rd unexpected.

After one more errand to get groceries, I was on my way home.  I briefly considered taking the exit before mine and just driving home on the back road but I was in the left lane, behind a semi and it was easier to just stay in my lane and drive the mile to 'my' exit.

And just like that, traffic came to a complete and utter stop.


And there we all sat for the next 1 1/2 hours.  Didn't move an inch.

We have construction on this interstate that is ongoing forever so I assumed it was a slow down.  Checked Google maps... they said a 5 minute slow down.  No worries.

5,10,25, 40 minutes later we were still there.

At the 1 hour mark I  turned my car off.

However, I didn't get angry.  Not at all. 
Even though I was literally 1 mile from my exit for home.

I felt bad for people running low on gas, but I had enough.
I felt bad for anyone who had cold groceries in their vehicle, but I had packed mine in cooler bags.
I felt bad for people who had little ones stuck in the vehicle with them but I did not have the potty-training toddler with me so I had no worries of hearing "pee!  pee!".
I felt bad for people who had to go to the bathroom, weren't feeling well or had diarrhea, but I was feeling fine and had actually (uncharacteristically of me) did a quick potty stop at the grocery store so I was good.
I didn't have to pick up children from school, get back to work, or make an appointment.  I was set.

I waited patiently.

1 1/2 hours later we slowly started to move.

That's when I realized it wasn't a construction issue;  I saw a tow truck towing an 18 wheeler away.  I saw numerous state police and local police cars.  Two vehicles were being interviewed by police officers.

Last night I read the news and found out two people died in the accident that stopped our traffic. 

I felt good that I hadn't gotten angry or impatient while waiting in the traffic jam. 
Being a couple hours later than planned was nothing compared to the two people that lost their lives.


It's Just the Coffee Talking Again: dropping off my Direct TV equipment this morning among other things


Last night, while I lay thinking here,
some Whatifs crawled inside my ear
and pranced and partied all night long
and sang their same old Whatif song...




I'm terrible with the Whatif's.
I can overthink everything.
Dwell on anything.
Want to try to fix, solve or bring to completion... every ill in the entire universe.
Two hours of sleep and then... awake.
So awake.
Reading helped.
Back to sleep.

Awake again early when Mr. Coffee's alarm went off for work.

Many, many errands to run today as I thought I'd have to work but I have the day off.  I have 5 places I must be... 

One of those errands is to return the receiver from our now-canceled Direct TV account.
The last time we moved and I canceled our cable/satellite TV account, they sent a box and label to ship it back.  And then, they do what they do... claim you never sent it so they can charge you $300.  But I had taken photos.  The equipment, the packed box, the sealed and labeled box.  

Suddenly they 'found' it and the charge disappeared.

Now they don't send you a box.  You just grab your equipment they want back and you pop into your local UPS/FedEx storefront.  They pack it and scan it and send it back.

I'm still going to snap a photo.

Do I have trust issues?  Control issues?  HA.  Maybe... but it's saved my ass too many times to count. 

I am not sure if I will do all 5 errands today... I'm mapping them out with traffic patterns, school dismissals, construction headaches and expected crowds or lines in each of the destinations.  One doesn't fit well into the schematic.

But... I have a newly brewed fresh, hot, black cup of coffee here just now and so, I get to procrastinate getting ready to leave for a few minutes more.

Thanks for popping in this morning... nothing earth shaking being discussed.  On purpose.  Because... some days I want to forget the world is going to hell in a hand-basket around my ears.



... it's just the coffee talking again anyway.

It's a crazy world we live in.







Sentenced to two years in a juvenile detention center where females are housed for molesting a 10-year-old girl in a women’s bathroom; He was also accused of sexually assaulting a minor in Kern County, California, though he was never prosecuted.






A biological male who now claims to identify as a woman boasted about getting a slap on the wrist in a jailhouse phone call to his father after he was sentenced to two years in a juvenile detention center where females are housed for molesting a 10-year-old girl in a women’s bathroom.

Hannah Tubbs, formerly James Tubbs, pleaded guilty to molesting the girl in a women’s bathroom eight years ago, when Tubbs was two weeks from turning 18, Fox News reported in January. It was only after Tubbs was taken into custody that he began identifying as a woman, prosecutors said.

Notably, Tubbs wasn’t connected to the case until 2019.

In a phone call, Tubbs “boasted that nothing would happen to her after she pleaded guilty due to Democrat District Attorney George Gascon’s policies and laughed that she won’t have to go back to prison or register as a sex offender,” Fox News reported. “She also made explicit remarks about the victim that are unfit to print.” Here’s how the conversation went, per Fox News:

“I’m gonna plead out to it, plead guilty,” Tubbs says in one recording. “They’re gonna stick me on probation, and it’s gonna be dropped, it’s gonna be done, I won’t have to register, won’t have to do nothing.”

“You won’t have to register?” her father asks on the other line later in the conversation.

“I won’t have to do none of that,” Tubbs replies.

“So what are they going to do to you then?”

“Nothing,” Tubbs answers, then laughs.

Tubbs’ victim, who was 10 at the time of the attack, told Fox News Digital that the handling of the case has been “insulting” and “unfair” to her.

“The things he did to me and made me do that day was beyond horrible for a ten-year-old girl to have to go through,” she told Fox. “I want him tried as an adult for the crimes he committed against me.”

“I’ve also heard that my attacker goes by she/them pronouns now,” she added. “I see it also unfair to try him as a woman as well, seeing how he clearly didn’t act like one on January 1st of 2014.”

Tubbs went into a female restroom at a Denny’s restaurant in 2014, grabbed a 10-year-old girl by the throat, locked her in a stall, and molested her until another person walked into the bathroom, reports say.

Far-left District Attorney George Gascón decided to try Tubbs as a minor, and Tubbs was sentenced to the maximum available sentence of two years.

“Tubbs is 26 years old,” said Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Jon Hatami. “Unlike George Gascon’s false narrative, she is not a ‘kid.’”

“There was evidence presented at the juvenile proceedings which showed that Tubbs sexually assaulted two young girls in different incidents in the past,” Hatami said. “The child victims will suffer lifelong trauma. Tubbs also has prior violent convictions and conduct as an adult.”

“Because of George Gascon’s blanket policy against transferring any juvenile to adult court, even if the 17-year-old rapes or murders an innocent child, James Tubbs will not have to register as a sex offender, will not spend any time in county jail or state prison, will be 26 and housed with juveniles for a very short period of time, and will be released with no probation or parole monitoring,” he blasted. “The victims will get no justice. The public will get no safety.”

“It’s an injustice against all of us, especially the young victims,” Hatami added.


Judge Mario Barrera blasted Gascón, too, but ultimately said his hands were “tied” and could not direct Tubbs to be housed in county jail.

“I want to be clear,” Barrera said. “The filing of a transfer motion is entirely within the discretion of the district attorney.”

According to Fox News, Tubbs was only linked to the case of the assault on the 10-year-old in 2019, when Tubbs’ DNA was entered into a database for another arrest. Charges were filed against Tubbs in 2020.

“Tubbs has previously been arrested for battery, drug possession and probation violations in Idaho and Washington,” the report noted.

He was also accused of sexually assaulting a minor in Kern County, California, though he was never prosecuted.






Good Morning Coffee Friends....

Some beds were switched around last night in order to hopefully help a 5 year old and 3 year old stop shenanigans and not think that 4:50 am is a good idea to start the day.  It worked.  This morning they slept in.  Whewthankyoulord.  That means the day started a tiny bit more normal.  But just a tiny bit.  Still some craziness going on in life.

Reading the news this morning I found myself with little to say.  I guess because I am watching us go so far beyond what should be considered okay or normal or acceptable... that I wonder, can we ever go back?  Have we destroyed journalism, democracy, common sense, honesty?  Accountability?  Have we lost our humanity?

So many thoughts.


 Have you noticed most media outlets and news stations won't cover President B speaking anymore?
They are trying to cover up his mental deficiency.  Go look for it.  Daily.  Every time he speaks.
No, really.  Go look for them.  Your mouth will drop, your eyebrows will raise and you will get a confused look on your face... he makes no sense.  He's lost it.

Is this too much to ask?

Confusion... every. dang. time. he. speaks.

Well, no one saw THIS coming, right?
Companies throwing billions to this domestic terrorist group ran by thugs... 
What did you THINK they were doing with it?

Which is more incompetent?
Hmm.  It's a toss-up.
Thanks Democrats.
This is all on you.

This whole subject makes me wonder.
I thought it was just ridiculous at first but once you start reading about some of these guys, it just gets a bit crazy... and they are serious.  That's the craziness about it.



I'm too dang tired to chat.








This is what happens when you order a president thru the mail


For the love of God... everything you touch turns to sh*t!

So, about the partnership with the lab where it all began... hmmm.



4 under the age of 7... and barely time to try to gulp any coffee this morning so I'm tired.  But it's quiet for a rare moment right now so I'm here... skimming news headlines and trying to sip a bit of coffee.  Hot. Strong.  Black.

I saw in the news the guy that wanted the personalized license plate including the letters F JB got it after all.  He didn't go through any approval process - it's just that after his story went viral and it flew up the ranks, someone, somewhere got it approved.

Free speech and all that... because Lord knows when our last Pres was in the White House a lot of snarky plates were approved no problem.  Double standards - alive and well.  But he has it.   Yay him!  A win.



Ponder over morning coffee...

Which country puts the most plastic in the ocean????

Inflation is at a 40-year high.  Housing costs jumped the most in 30 years.
Grocery cost increases are at a 40 year high.
Gas is the most expensive ever.
THESE are Biden taxes.

If I win the lottery, I'm not saying I would tell anyone, but there would be signs......
