Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #217: Opposites

For some reason, I'm feeling very oppositional today.  And I caught all these opposites on our shopping trip this afternoon!  My readers will know that I am opposed to the government's insistence that we all drive electric cars, for reasons discussed in many previous posts here.  I happen to live in a far-left-environmental-wacko area of …

Today’s Electric Car Story

It's priceless!  The story on Fox News about a Canadian man who bought his Tesla in 2013, and needs to replace its battery (equivalent to the engine in a gas-powered car).  It is well-known that lithium-ion batteries eventually lose the ability to maintain a charge, and must be replaced.  What is not so well-known, and …

Harm reduction? I really don’t think so.

The latest "thing" in social attitudes toward the scourge of drug addiction is a movement called "harm reduction".  Sounds beneficial, doesn't it?  However, it's not beneficial, but enabling.  The movement has used such interventions as "safe injection sites", provision of clean needles to addicts, and mobile clinics to provide services, including the aforementioned clean needles. …

#Wordless Wednesday: Smokey and the ??

Since our local smoke is gone, the following photos are from our trip to Montana and back in September of 2017.  Glacier Park was closed, and fires were burning within a few miles of our vacation cabin. Lake Coeur D'Alene from I-90. Spokane Valley from I-90 View across the street from our cabin in Bigfork, …

The Left really does inhabit an alternate Universe

In the last couple of days, the Left has amply demonstrated that their Universe greatly differs from obvious Reality.  These stories really have me shaking my head in disbelief.  First, here's an excellent article dealing with the Left's alternate Universe. Have you seen any Republicans "running scared" ahead of the upcoming Midterm Elections?  I sure …

Covid and Covid vaccine news you have perhaps not seen

We are probably all aware that, since early 2020, the Federal government, the mainstream media, and all the Big Tech companies have been censoring all news stories, news outlets, and medical professionals whose information does not concur with whatever is the latest government "guidance".  The Public has been denied news of the results of medical …

We must always remember, September 11, 2001

Most every adult alive on that day remembers where he/she was and what they were doing that sunny Tuesday morning.  I was making breakfast before work, and I had the TV on when the story broke.  I saw one of the towers that looked like it was on fire.  Since it was in New York, …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #216: Urban Environments

Thinking back on the past three years, it occurs to me that we have pretty much stayed out of big cities, both at home and on vacations.  In the last three years of Covid madness, I have only been to Seattle once, for a private concert at the new Center for Chamber Music, which Hubby …

An afternoon at The Fair

On Friday, September 9, Hubby and I again went to the Washington State Fair in Puyallup (in Pierce County).  This year's fair was much freer than last year's, when masks were required even outdoors!  I did not wear a mask last year, in defiance of the Health Nazis, and even though they were not required …
