This is another of the W.O.O.D. series of semi-regular
Weekly Occasional Open Discussions.
(i.e. if I forget and skip one, no big)
Immediate prior one here:
and remains open for threads running there (at least until the ‘several month’ auto-close of comments on stale threads).
Canonical list of old ones here:
The House Hunt is ongoing, so expect things to be terse a while longer.
I’ve already given a boat report and you know I’m working on learning how to Fish Florida.
I’ve got 2 cars that need to be run through the mechanic for tune-up class stuff.
I’m finding I really like the Hot Tub and an afternoon nap… Florida is starting to sink in…
This will be DIY for a while as editing HTML and urls is a Royal Pita on the Tablet.
Also will be terse.
Russia / Ukraine has entered the “old news” realm. Just not a lot of New News and what there is seems to be 100% fabrication. Biden & Co. are, of course, trying to talk down the potential of a nuclear war. (Bloomberg saying it was bad of a Russian to talk about the risks… Um, no, it’s a Good Idea to talk about how likely it is to be nuked and how bad that would be. At least if you want to make a wise decision about starting W.W.III)
Biden has announced the new Ministry Of Truth (in the Dept. of Homeland Security). So you can now rest easy that Biden and his hand picked lessers will be deciding what is Truth ™ and what you will be allowed to say. All Hail Dear Leader! (can we use /sarc; tags anymore?…)
In keeping with the New Ministry Of Truth Guidelines:
Puppy’s have been found to be fun.
Food supplies will be plentiful for everyone (and new recipes for polenta with beans and rice with toast are being published for your pleasure in cooking…)
There are no “men” and “women”, only fellow person objects. Pronouns are sooo last administration. “IT” is all you need. As in: “I’d like you to meet my Cousin It”. This has been a normal usage since the era of B&W TV, though in limited circulation.
Dear Leader will be establishing a new Election Truth Committee to assure the 2028 election is the correct one. (2024 has been postponed due to, um, Covid, or Ukraine, or, well, something will be announced).
And of course, there’s a 97% approval rating for everything done by Congress.
Enjoy Your Day! (or else…)

I’ve also gotten addicted to the Top Ten Memes of the week from WatchMAGA here:
They have interesting “bite” to them, along with a tendency to highlight the news of the week in memes, so good as a social attitude pointer too. Plus they are “way fun” ;-)
