I just got this from a "friend." This is enough for me to say you're no friend of mine.

Let me make this clear: I do not agree with any of the following. I am posting it so that we all can clearly see what the opposition believes. It makes me sick.

You can't justify this insanity: • If a guy pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.

• Somehow it's un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.

• Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.

• It was cool for Joe Biden to "blackmail" the President of Ukraine.

• Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.

• People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.

• People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.

• Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you'd better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.

• Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang member or terrorist who jumps the southern fence is welcome.

• $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for "free" health care is not.

• If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.

• If you cheat in an election nothing happens to you, but if you point out the mathematical errors of that election you are a conspiracy theorist & disdained.

• People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.

• We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan for us.

• Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.

• Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of their rights.

And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us "racists"?!

Nothing makes sense anymore - no values, no morals, and no civility. People are dying of a Chinese virus, but it's racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China. We are clearly living in an upside-down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong but killing unborn babies is okay!

Wake up America! The great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, it's taking on water, and is sinking fast. We Americans are drowning. Speak up while you still have breath and a voice because if you don’t soon you will have neither!

My First Successful Total Lunar Eclipse Photo, May 15, 2022.

Obviously, there are things that need to be fixed! But I did want to show all of you what I was able to accomplish (with AndyS' help!).

Enjoy!

Bon Appetit!

I was rummaging around in old flower photos from 2015...

And I came across these flowers that I took at the Wayfarer's Chapel up in Palos Verdes where it overlooks the Pacific Ocean.

I was happy to see these again, and I wanted to share them with all of you.

I was using my Nikon D3200. Everything was on auto! Hope you enjoy my little wandering down memory lane...
