    Well, in the wake of the NC bathroom kerfuffle, I just spent several minutes explaining the so-called law and the differences between transgender, trans-sexual, transvestite and hermaphrodite individuals to my 86 year old mother. While I am not so sure that she got all of it, I am happy that she was willing to be open-minded and to get the idea that gender identification is much more fluid than many think and that this is not something new in human history. I also mentioned our president’s and AG’s support of transgender individuals. We do live in interesting times.

      Looks like the Norway flag on opposite side of door from US flag, so I’m guessing the Norway PM arrives first. Just a guess though. 😀

        Sincerest apologies for my momentary lapse, Your Highess! I’m a little rusty on my Scandinavian.

        GAH, that’s deeply ignorant. At any given time you can stop being in the whirlpool of any given party and never have to give up your sense of privilege. So, NO.

        WTH???

        He has no idea what he’s talking about, should keep his uninformed mouth shut (yes I know he’s an esteemed professor, but as my East TN relatives say, book learnin’ don’t mean you’ve got common sense).

        Agree with Meta.

      Hi Meta, thanks for letting us know it’s your special day!

      (Excited about my first Sweet Pea bloom [pink and white, far left]. Sweet Peas are my favorite, long-stemmed – perfect for vases, with a heavenly fragrance!)

      • May 13, 2016 at 8:17 pm

        Oh, I LOVE sweet peas! The fragrance is heavenly. Thank you!

        Wow! Your garden is gorgeous! Very impressive!

        Here’s mine! 😀

          Oh, how sad.

          Reason I like succulents is that they are hardy (in SoCal — not so much where it rains a lot 😦 ).

          Unfortunately have many flowering plants who ended this way, even when I *did* pay attention to them. 😦

          The best thing about my garden is that they’re all in containers, can move them wherever I’m in the mood, and soooo much better for my back than digging into the (clay, rock-hard soil) ground here.

            It’s not really mine, but if I had one, that’s how it would look. I truly appreciate the people who do garden very much and the skill involved in doing it well. My Mom & Sister live in their gardens. I just never could get into it. I may have said this before, but I really have killed a cactus or two back in the day. Knew it just wasn’t my thing. 🙂

        You have a beautiful garden, Arapaho.

    OH MY GOD MY DAY HAS BEEN FILLED WITH ASSHOLES! I always say that 98% of my patrons are wonderful people. Today the 2% came out in force.

      “I would go out [to the Nordic State Dinner] tonight, but I haven’t got a stitch to wear….”

      Ha! Heard that in Whole Foods yesterday and realized that I still know all of the words. Can’t stand Morrissey, but the Smiths were epic. “Hatful of Hollow” is one of the best albums ever. “How Soon is Now” was the theme for my club going years.

    Anybody wondering whether Black people are excited about the Marvel Black Panther movie that’s slated to come out in freaking 2018?
