Pseudo-orca in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand.

One of the highlights of our trip to the Bay of Islands in New Zealand last January was when we had the opportunity to enjoy a large pod of pseudo-orcas, over 100 by the estimate. They were feeding and we were able to enjoy their company twice, heading out to and heading back from the mouth of the bay.

Take a look at this: Pro-Trump riot on Capitol Hill was even more violent than it appeared.

Words Matter

There are not two sides to this. ONE thing was done with ONE goal. The mob of insurrectionists are ALL bad and evil people.

They are NOT patriots: they do not want to live in the democratic republic defined by the constitution. They want to put in place an autocracy.

They are NOT conservatives: conservatives have respect for institutions and the rule of law.

They sure as H.E. double toothpicks are not “right”, they are the far wrong.

It is not over:

Mr. Lyndsey Graham (who does not deserve a title and should be removed from office for his actions that have enabled this situation to occur) said “if something else happens all options will be on the table”. So, what was last week? I’d call last Wednesday “something else”. How many COVID-19 deaths are we at now?

We just got a major warning from the Federal Bureau of Investigation about major armed violence in EVERY state capitol in the next few days as well as D.C.…is that “something else”?

For DC Republicans money talks…and bullshit walks the halls of congress. Armed insurrection is an emergency. It wasn’t quelled last week.

Armed insurrection is an emergency.

Time to eat up those dried beans you’ve been saving for an emergency. Send a message to corporate America, one that they actually understand, by not spending, and they will pass it on to congress.

Oh, Donny Boy could be out the day after tomorrow, if Moscow Mitch has a fire lit under him by big money, and Moscow only has feeling in his wallet. Even people coming to lynch him didn’t do anything.

Winter browns

Hey Jude for Life in Colour this month chose brown as the theme and asked “what browns can you find in the world?”. I took these photos today thinking about that theme. Brown is a funny color, I often don’t see it. I tend to see things that many people see as brown as shades of red or orange. I think these are brown?

Also this is my entry for Lens Artists: Its a small world.
