The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC


I only recently started watching The Rachel Maddow Show on a regular basis.

I'm enjoying it.

Finding a seat in Heaven

Obama, Hillary and Trump are standing at the throne of heaven. God looks at them and says, "Before granting you a place at my side, I must ask you what you have learned and what you believe in."

God asks Obama first: “What do you believe?"

He thinks long and hard, looks God in the eye, and says, "I believe in hard work, and in staying true to family and friends. I believe in giving. I was lucky, but I always tried to do right by my countrymen".

God can’t help but see the essential goodness of Obama , and offers him a seat to his left.

Then God turns to Hillary and says, "What do you believe?"

Hillary says, "I believe passion, discipline, courage and honor are the fundamentals of life. Like Obama I believe in hard work. I, too, have been lucky, but win or lose, I've always tried to be a true patriot and a loyal American."

God is greatly moved by Hillary's high-pitched eloquence, and he offers her a seat to his right.

Finally, God turns to Trump and says, "And you, Donald, what do you believe?"

Trump replies, "I believe you're in my seat."

Watching Disturbia. The only thing I'm really disturbed about right now is the mumbling actors. I have to keep rewinding to try to understand what they're saying. I think teenagers are texting with their mouths when they try to talk nowadays, because I just don't understand the lingo.


Turn on the closed captions (although sometimes those are horrible and make me feel bad for
deaf people who need them more than I do).

Just got back from a Holiday Home tour in Old Louisville. This part of Louisville is near downtown and is one of the largest Victorian architecture neighborhoods in the U.S.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Louisville

http://www.oldlouisville.com/

The houses are close together, but a wide grassy median separates the two sides of the streets, and they display art work there at the St. James Art Festival every October.

My pictures I took on a gray misty day today are here:
(Please excuse the rain drops on my lens)

The fountain is off for the Winter.


They should fill it with vodka. It doesn't freeze.

OK cute squirrel pics warning!!

Having now volunteered my services to the Isle of Wight Red Squirrel Trust. I have a bit more information on what to feed them.

I started small a few hazelnuts and some sunflower seeds.


I see by the last picture that you're trying to get her hooked. ;-)

A Liverpool fan walks into a travel agents and says, "I'm looking for a small break away in England for the Christmas period, but I don't know where to go?" The travel agent says, "You can't beat Bournemouth this time of year."


This must be a soccer/football joke.

We had ladybugs around here in October. Those orange ones bite.


It makes meteorological sense that they would show up there earlier than here.

'Tis the season of the ladybugs. This happens every fall in my house.

Ladybugs love to eat plant lice.
Do you have many flowers at your home?


No, actually, I don't. But there must be a food source around somewhere. I do have a big
rosebush, but that's all, really. (Except for weeds.)

They look like Ladybirds - a small insectivorous beetle

And if they gather there, there is something for them to eat.


Not at all. They are preparing to hibernate. I did a little research and found out that they
leave a strong scent* behind so they'll know where to hibernate next year. That must be
why I see them every year at this time and in the exact same spot.

*Strong to them, not necessarily to humans.

Yes, ladybird beetles or, as I know them, lady bugs.

Back to critters, here is what happens in the same spot every Autumn in my house:



These little guys and gals do no damage, thank God. (Or if they do, I'm blissfully ignorant of it.)
(And wish to stay that way, hint, hint.)

I've posted a few close-up photos in the Buggy thread.
