      This is great news, Dudette. I really look forward to the Kennedy Center honors this year. They’re always such a great event, although I never paid attention to them under any other president.

    This photo is toooo cute, perfect for our lovable curmudgeon, amk.

    From yesterday, an AP description of #Euromaidan.

    Considering our current diplomatic efforts with Iran, thought this part of the explanation was fitting:
    “‘Maidan’ is obscure to Western ears β€” it’s a word of Persian origin, which likely entered Ukraine via the Ottomans, meaning ‘square’ or ‘open place.’ However, translating it as ‘Europesquare’ would be technically accurate but emotionally impoverished because both elements mean much more.”

    Also dovetails nicely with a conversation on one of LL’s recent gems about “meanness” or the coarsening of US values. My contribution to the discussion was that Americans are no longer taught the concept of a public space, and how to behave in public (they basically act as if they were on their living room sofa, regardless of where they may be). If you ask Americans what a public space is, they will most likely respond with a retail setting (e.g., shopping mall, theatre or coffeeshop).

    On tonight’s menu:

    Broiled flat iron steak, seasoned with blackened seasoning
    Sauteed asparagus tips, in evoo, seasoned with garlic salt and garlic pepper

    And, another gimlet recipe when you don’t want to keep a stock of fresh limes:

    2 oz. of gin
    1/2 oz of Rose’s sweetened lime juice
    Make sure you keep the proportions exact. More of Rose’s and it’s too sickly sweet.

    President Obama is on the verge of starting a new war πŸ™‚

    As today marked the fourth mice drop atop forested areas of Anderson Airforce Base since September, U.S. Department of Agriculture assistant state director supervisory wildlife biologist Dan Vice explains the process that’s already proving successful at controlling the local brown tree snake population.
    He said, “What we’re going to be watching is the oral delivery of oral toxicants out of a helicopter. The process is quite simple. The helicopter is going to make low altitude flights over the forest at relatively slow speeds they’re going to be certified pesticide applicators inside the helicopter delivering the baits out of the helicopter on a time sequence.”

    And today, 2,000 dead mice baits were dropped. Each filled with 80 mg of acetaminophen attached to two pieces of cardboard and green tissue paper.
    “The cardboard is heavier than the tissue paper and opens up in an inverted horse shoe. It then floats down and ultimately hangs up in the forest canopy. Once its hung in the forest canopy snakes have an opportunity to consume the bait,” he said. And baits are lethal to snakes, killing them within 72-hours. But how about other animal life? Vice says a pig or a dog would have to consume at least 500 of the baits to receive a lethal dose.

    “One reason acetaminophen is so effective for snakes is that its very low toxicity to other organisms. of all the organisms in the forest to be concerned about the monitor lizards, the iguanas is probably the one that is potentially at risk but because the baits are hung up in the forest canopy and not distributed on the floor the monitors aren’t going to encounter the baits with great frequency the monitors climb trees but they tend not to feed in trees,” he said.

    I hope AMK is enjoying his special place tonight.

    Chips, that picture up thread can’t be Danny in a short while. All the toys were in one piece.

    And I feel soooooooo privileged. Ron Fournier actually responded to one of my tweets. I have to go wash my brain now.
