      Good morning all. For those that may not know, our dear Alycee/jazziz lost a dear dear family member this week. Let’s keep her in our thoughts and surround her with prayers of peace and strength.

      Is the dam beginning to slightly crack?

      Still warm, low 80’s here and zero rain predicted for days. Bad drought.

    Bees:
    “Out-Of-Work Appalachian Coal Miners Train As Beekeepers To Earn Extra Cash.”
    “Just like his grandfather and father before him, James Scyphers spent almost two decades mining coal in West Virginia….But mining jobs started disappearing, declining from 132,000 in 1990 to 53,000 in 2018, devastating the area’s economy. In a state that now has the lowest labor-force participation rate in the nation, the long-term decline of coal mining has left West Virginia residents without new options to make a living….
    cyphers was fortunate to find a construction job, but it paid two-thirds less than what he earned underground. He often took odd jobs to make ends meet. One of those odd jobs included building hives and tending bees for the Appalachian Beekeeping Collective.

    “Homework Is Ruining Our Kids. The Research is Clear. Let’s Ban It.”
    “The superintendent of one Florida school district has already implemented the recommended “no-homework” policy for elementary schools. She told the Washington Post she “made the decision based on solid research about what works best in improving academic achievement.”
    That research includes a 2006 meta-analysis of homework studies dating back to 1987. It found there was no association between homework and achievement. In other words, assigning children homework did not help them learn or retain information better or do better on tests. It also includes a 2014 study by Stanford University showing high school students are suffering “stress, physical health problems, a lack of balance and even alienation from society” thanks to too much homework.”
    (https://returntonow.net/2019/10/01/ban-homework/)

    • October 11, 2019 at 11:31 am

      In primary school I don’t remember having any formal homework. We got home and we played together outside if the weather was good, until dark in the summer. We didn’t have much. But we played and were highly creative. And we read up a storm. imo children now are supervised so heavily in after school activities, they are fed up by the time High School or what follows rolls around. May we all be given the time and space to just Be.

    Sarah Lazarus:
    “Who are we talking about here? Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman are “businessmen” who helped Giuliani coerce Ukraine into investigating into Joe Biden. They also simultaneously exploited their proximity to Giuliani and Trump to attempt a takeover of a Ukrainian gas company (state-owned NAFTOGAS ) so they could steer lucrative congrats to Trump allies in the U.S.”

      Not Just Ukraine:
      “Rudy Giuliani appeared on Sean Hannity’s show before God and everyone and said “keep your eye not just on China, keep your eye on Romania. Just watch Romania.
      Then at the end of the interview he hinted hat yet another country is involved in his international
      freelance collusion racket.”

      “We are the hollow men
      We are the stuffed men
      Leaning together
      Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
      Our dried voices, when
      We whisper together
      Are quiet and meaningless
      As wind in dry grass
      Or rats’ feet over broken glass
      In our dry cellar
      Shape without form, shade without colour,
      Paralysed force, gesture without motion;
      Those who have crossed
      With direct eyes, to death’s other Kingdom
      Remember us-if at all-not as lost
      Violent souls, but only
      As the hollow men
      The stuffed men.”
      (T.S. Eliot)

    O’Donnell :
    “And another number in here, the basic question: “Is it appropriate for Trump to ask foreign leaders to investigate rivals?  Sixty-six percent say no.”
    Jonathon Alter: 
    “See, this is like a mafia shakedown. It`s easy for people to understand. They see movies about the mafia. It`s not the Mueller report with a lot of complexity they don`t get into. And in terms of these documents that they are not going to cough up now, I`m not really worried about that because the problem is not that there is not a smoking gun. There is not just a smoking gun. 
    There is a smoking artillery range.”
    –heh. 

    • October 11, 2019 at 1:02 pm

      Alter: “You know, there is a tremendous amount of evidence that is already in the public record, and so this idea that something more has to be uncovered, he could be with justification impeached tomorrow and
      what`s fascinating is that the American people understand it. 
      So, support for Richard Nixon`s impeachment did not go above 50 percent until two weeks before he was forced from office and resigned.” 

    • October 11, 2019 at 1:05 pm

      O`Donnell:  “You care about a document like that when you don`t have the phone call.”
      Alter:  “Right. This – I think you`re absolutely right. So, think about when a guy robs a bank, right, and there is videotape of him putting a gun to the teller and then, you know, a couple of weeks later, you hear that there`s a witness in the bank who is sworn out a statement, you know, that supplements – it`s nice that you have the witness`s testimony — but he`s been caught red-handed!”
      O’Donnell: “Yes.”
      Alter: “You don`t need really it.  All of this is supplemental.”

    Congress may seek 8 years of Trump’s business records from his accounting firm, appeals court rules

    In a 2-1 ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit upheld Congress’s broad investigative powers and rejected President Trump’s bid to block lawmakers from subpoenaing the documents. The case is one of several legal battles over access to the president’s financial data.

      Trump is NOT on our side.
      He’s on Erdogan and Putin’s side.
      ERDOGAN: Because he has a hotel and other properties in Turkey.

    CNN reporting Kevin McAleenan – Acting Homeland chief, is stepping down.

    • October 11, 2019 at 8:23 pm

      NPR is covering for Trump.
      Such a travesty.
      We know Trump is directly involved in the shake-down: Removing Yovanovitch was part of that.
      We know he fired Yovanovitch because she wouldn’t go along with his schemes.
      Instead of telling that story,
      NPR forwarded the faux version that:
      1) Doom was “bamboozled by Giuliani and operatives”. (See photo of them dining together in the White House).
      2) “Doom is within his rights to fire Yovanovitch if he wants to.” one commentator said.
      NPR purposely ignores that Trump removed Y. because she wouldn’t play along with his schemes.

      • October 11, 2019 at 8:24 pm

        When NPR does this, as we have seen from Barr’s game, it takes a long time to get the real story out.
        Seems to be NPR’s intention. Why do we put up with R media like this. Let’s not turn a blind eye to what R media did in 2016.
