  1. I must admit I'm getting thoroughly impatient with the analyzing of whether Putin is "rational" or not. This mass murderer is responsible for countless atrocities, and the Western world is dithering about while he commits more and more heinous acts. Yes, other countries, mine included, have also committed heinous acts, but this is happening NOW. The whole situation stinks of appeasement. What Zelensky needs is air support - NOW. However it can be arranged, through whatever means available. He is wiping a democratic country off the map and it must not be allowed to happen. Our leaders have been running scared from a tyrant who must be stopped.
  2. Isn't he saying, in essence, that Russia will circumvent sanctions by going through the puppet Lukashenko, and that until Belarus obtains sovereignty, that it should be cut off too?
  3. From the BBC. Anyone else know more about this? Ukraine: Spam website set up to reach millions of Russians - BBC News I'm somewhat hindered by my broken right arm/hand.j
  4. You probably feel strangely excited because the memory takes you back to your 20s when everything was new and exciting. That's potent stuff. Go, but just be sure to separate the woman from the girl.
  5. Who's in charge of these troops?? Why would you fire on a nuclear power plant so close to your own country?
  6. What the living fuck. Isn't this almost the equivalent of dropping an actual nuke???
  7. it was really stupid of me. slipped on ice while walking my dog at night. now i have 2 plates in my foreaem and cant even comb my hair. boo-hoo.
  8. currently i have a broken right arm (dominant) so can barely post except to "like" it's driving me crazy
  9. Yum. I find myself fantasizing about a stealth aircraft raining down a bit of whup-ass on this massive 40-mile convoy headed to Kyiv.
  10. when i lived in California, i had a potted tomato plant on the patio and it grew and produced fruits for four years
  11. When your son and your HAIRDRESSER (!!) call it a bad decision, that should say it all. Look, a good "F" is fun, and I'd be the last person to deny anyone that pleasure, but time's passing, Chats. Do you really want to waste any more of it? Like they say about food - A moment on the lips, forever on the hips. An orgasm is just as fleeting and the results can be just as devastating.
  12. Any advice I can give you would have to be contingent upon my accompanying you on your getaway to the Maldives so that I may act as your personal assistant/confidant/linen presser while you are being wined and dined.
  13. You have to cut them in half. But, yes, it irritates me too.
  14. "Fantastic!" Yes, I am that irritatingly enthusiastic person you've heard about.
  15. Has anyone heard from Drawkcabi lately? I know he lives somewhere in the Eastern US, and with the violent storms that have recently hit that region, I worry about him. It's just him, his mom, and his furbabies now.
  16. There's few things that come anywhere close to losing a much-loved companion. But . . . Tomorrow we're meeting a new dog - "Evie" It's not certain yet, as my husband reminds me, but I feel the stars are aligning. She's a rescue, of course. A mixed breed of Lab and various other doggy types. We CANNOT WAIT!
  17. I don't. I just thought they might approve an electric fence since having a physical fenced-in yard is an impossibility where we live. I'm assuming they want something to prevent the pet from wandering the neighborhood. My Benny was eventually trained to stay in the yard, but there were quite a few years where I spent hours driving up and down the neighborhood yelling his name, tempting him with various treats, etc., etc., until he got in the car and told me about his adventures.
  18. We've tried, but it's been tough picking the right one. I know it's unfair to compare any dog to Ben, but I loved him so much, I guess I'm trying to recreate the experience. He was a mixed mutt - a bit of Boxer and Rhodesian Ridgeback and maybe some Lab somewhere. I sure don't want to go that long without a furry companion. It's tough getting a rescue lately, though. The adoption folks all want fenced-in yards and ours is impossible to fence in. I'm not sure how they feel about an electric fence and am half afraid to ask.
  19. I STILL haven't been able to find another dog after Benny passed to the great beyond. He was a prince among dogs. My gentleman hound.
  20. I don't know about mint, because, frankly, I don't care whether it lives or dies!! But basil I know. If you cut carefully just above where two leaves are, nestled in on both sides of the area you just cut will spring new growth. Elder Sis's link probably explains this better than I could. I would LOVE to grow tulips, but the bunnies and deer have crossed that one off my list. I found two BIG deer munching on a hosta we had carefully covered with netting. They just took it off and had their way with it. Hydrangeas are one of the main things I'm jealous of the South about (among quite a few others!) You guys seem to be able to grow gorgeous ones down there despite the heat and sun. We can grow them here in the Midwest, but they never seem to be quite as happy as they are in the South.
  21. Try cutting off a good 3-4" stalk of basil, removing the bottom leaves and stick it in water. It usually takes root quite freely and replant it. You can discard your overgrown basil and start fresh with a young-un!
  22. Have you noticed any ants around your place? Ants will actually cultivate aphids by carrying them around and placing them on plants so they can then harvest the sticky sweet secretions the produce while they're decimating your plants. It's quite fascinating really, if it weren't so annoying. You can take a cotton swab and dip it in alcohol and then stick it on the aphids and watch them wither and die!! Ha-HAAAAA!!! Even if you can't save your artichokes, it will be very satisfying, I promise you.
  23. When we lived in Cincinnati, Ohio, I had a strip of soil between the house and the sidewalk that was about 30' or so long, and every year I planted my dahlia bulbs there. They were GORGEOUS and I miss them! Digging them up was a small price to pay to have beautiful cut flowers all season long. They last wonderfully long and come in such spectacular colors. The only enemy was the beetles that would come to feast on them. Grrrr.... P.S. There's a "Mr. ES"??? Great news! I've been out of the news cycle lately. This is great planting time here in the Midwest for lettuce, spinach, cilantro - all the things that basically get blown out by the summer heat.
  24. When we lived in California, we were near a place named El Pollo Loco, which made some of the best chicken I've ever had, along with fresh tortillas, house made salsa, cilantro, etc. We often picked up an order on the way home from work if we were running late and wanted a quick dinner. Our beloved fur buddy, Dozer, ADORED this chicken. All I had to do was enter the door with a bag and wherever he was, he'd come at a run simply at the smell of it. The insistent meowing went on and on until he was offered his fair share, which of course he got ASAP. ETA: Tonight we had leftover stew, which is always the best. Especially when you use lots of port wine in the sauce. Mmmmmmmm . . .
