Name that wet tune!

Since Fridays tend to be major news dumps these days, how about a light-hearted game?

Write a few lines from a song that refers to water, let everybody else guess what song its from, and the artist. Me first!

"I have my ship and all her flags are a' flyin'
She is all that I have left and music is her name".

Alzheimer's Help?

My mom had Alzheimer's when she died, and I'm starting to forger words sometimes, so I'm getting worried. I've started taking Ginkgo Biloba, Turmeric, and probiotics, as well as, trying to eat more things like walnuts and blueberries. Trying to steer clear of red meat (if the husband will stop buying pork chops!)

Anyone else in the same boat, and what are you doing about it? Any results?

Frogs are singing in the pond!

Spring can't be far behind---it was 72 degrees today in KY.

I'm looking for ideas on plant supports this year. I tried staking up my tomatoes and dinner-plate dahlia's last year, and they all ended up on the ground. Every year, I've tried something different, and looking for more success.

What do you use?

My Mom would have been 87 today......

Remembering her today, and everyday. She lived a hard life, started poor, and never got much better. Raised 5 kids. She loved animals and gardening, and was a life-long Democrat.....glad I inherited all of that. Succumbed to Alzheimer's and cancer, a few years after my Dad.

Missing her.....

I've been humming this song all day....

Olympic Athletes Save Pets From the South Korean Dog Meat Trade


Many of the millions of people watching the Winter Olympics this year may not know that South Korea is the only country in the world that breeds dogs –- about 2.5 million each year — specifically for human consumption, according to Humane Society International (HSI). There are thousands of farms across the country where dogs are raised in deplorable conditions and then brutally slaughtered for their meat.

This petition could use some DU love, folks

Biden Takes on Trump?

Something on CNN at 9:00 eastern. I was sent a screen shot of the ad. Anyone know what this is about? I can't pull up anything.

Now THIS is a good doggie and kitty!

Russia Promises to Stop Killing Stray Dogs Before World Cup 2018

As a way of “cleaning up” Sochi, Russia, prior to the Winter Olympics in 2014, city officials hired a pest control firm to kill thousands of stray dogs. Many of those dogs were former pets abandoned when their families’ houses were demolished prior to the construction of Olympics venues. The families were moved to apartments where their dogs were unwelcome.

People around the world, as well as the world’s greatest athletes, were outraged. Some, like silver-medalist skier Gus Kenworthy, adopted doomed dogs to spare their lives. Humane Society International worked with local rescue groups to transport many of the dogs to the United States, where they found forever homes.

After more than 174,000 people signed a Care2 petition urging President Vladamir Putin to end the killing of the street dogs, Sochi city officials had an animal shelter built to house some of the strays.
