Weather

In my little parcel of Athens, over the last 36 hours, there have been winds like I've never experienced.  There are lots of branches in the yard, and the wooden bench on the porch was blown into the yard, but none of the trees came down.  I never lost power.  I'm luckier than most of Athens, and infinitely luckier than those south of me.  Keep all of them strengthened and comforted with your thoughts.

I got to do something for today that I've only gotten to do a couple of times in the last ten years, and that's use a photo of both nominees in a match-up. The other day on Facebook, I bemoaned the lack of pictures of people in tiaras/hats. It was because of the first pairing here. There are lots and lots of pictures of QE II in hats, tiaras, crowns, what have you. Michelle Obama? Not so much.

The Bomber says, "Off you go!"

  2. How the heck is one supposed to choose between Michelle Obama and the Queen? Or Dolly Parton and Meryl Streep? That's just ridiculous!

    1. Yesterday I happened to read an article by a [black] woman who had attended the Dixie Stampede, Dolly Parton's Civil War-themed dinner theatre. It kinda turned my stomach, but it certainly made it easy to vote for Meryl Streep today.
