Life in Kentucky as we know it is now over......

KFC drops Finger Lickin' Good slogan as 'doesn't quite fit' in age of Covid-19

Fast food chain says tagline is unsuitable in the light of the hygiene measures to tackle pandemic

See: https://www.theguardian.com/food/2020/aug/24/kfc-drops-finger-lickin-good-slogan-due-to-covid-10

The fast food chain has acknowledged it will need to move on, at least temporarily, from the tagline it has used on and off for more than six decades, releasing new images of advertising posters and packaging with the words blurred and pixellated.

The move comes about five months after it pulled ads featuring the catchphrase amid complaints that the featured montage of people licking their own fingers and those of their companions ran counter to official advice to stem the spread of the virus. According to the Drum, more than 150 people complained to the Advertising Standards Authority in March.

But is it still OK to lick the skillet?

Seems a bit of a farce since ya' just about have to pick the chicken up with your fingers anyway.

OK, time for a break. Feat. Buddy Mercury Dog and Lil Sis!

Buddy Mercury and Baby really rock out for National Kids and Pets Day!!!

Awwww, baby wanted a treat, too!


Belarus is more likely linked to Russia's defense radar systems....

but that's just a wild-ass guess.....

But destroying protest balloons does sound like a Putin-style move.


The core essence of that statement is the objective of dividing our nation.

Division among the populace is the core objective of the ultra wealthy so they can keep us blindly occupied with jobs and consumerism while being fearful of our neighbors. In other words, community is the enemy of our corporate world and the Democratic Party believes in community. Therefore, we are the enemy. When divided, people are easily controlled.

That philosophy is cleverly promoted through right-wing media and think tanks by designating us Democrats as "the other" or "the enemy" for decades on talk radio and Faux News to the point that now, around a third of Americans are thoroughly brainwashed.

They've used every emotional tool in the right-wing fascist playbook to achieve that goal including gun ownership, racial issues, women's rights, hatred of government and taxes and faux patriotism.

I honestly have little long-term hope for our Nation and many others like the UK unless we can drastically reduce asset and income inequality around the globe.

To date, that inequality is only getting worse day by day.

KY rant done for Monday.....

'Conmen, grifters and criminals': why is Trump's circle so at odds with the law?

This is a good article to pass along to any right-win knotheads among our coworkers or friends....

'Conmen, grifters and criminals': why is Trump's circle so at odds with the law?

Apart from legal trouble, what Bannon, Manafort, Flynn, Cohen, Stone, Gates and Papadopoulos have in common is the president

Link: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/aug/21/donald-trump-law-crime-steve-bannon

To live outside the law, Bob Dylan sang, you must be honest. It also helps, apparently, to stay as clear as possible from Donald Trump, whose inner circle of advisers has suffered steady attrition since 2017, through a series of encounters with the criminal justice system.
“Why this unprecedented situation?” said Cotter, now a Chicago-based officer with the Greensfelder law firm. “My almost 40 years working in criminal law has taught me that criminals of a particular type tend to associate with other criminals of the same type. There is a comfort level and mutual understanding in such associations.

“So when I see a swarm of conmen buzzing around one particular man, in this case Trump, my experience suggests that it is because they recognize one of their own. And in selecting them to be his confidants, the president also recognized kindred spirits.”

It just keeps happening. But it has not happened to Trump, yet.

The author gives us a snapshot review of the criminality that has surrounded tRump since day one in office.


Get your ducks out on the job! These guys are coming to get you.....

if you're snail!......

Mighty ducks fight pests in South Africa | Eco-at-Africa
DW News

White dune snails are wreaking havoc on grape vines in South African vineyards. Ducks - and not chemical pesticides - are being used to fight them. That's good news for bees and other insects.

and a bonus duck feature for Tuesday.....

Ducks Trained to Manage Rice Paddies in Thailand

This farmer trains his ducks to do this work. It takes two months of training before they are ready. He hires out their service to rice farmers. The ducks enter rice field three times per rice growing cycle.

They eat insects that are destroying the rice and then fertilize the crop with their manure. Back at the farm they lay 500-700 eggs/day in rainy season and 2000-2500 eggs/day the rest of the year. Quite a feat of organic, sustainable method combining farming and animal husbandry.


Love the way the ducks spiral down out of his truck.


Please relay best wishes and DU hugs to Texas Towelie...

and tell him DU needs him back for election and general hell-raising support......

Hope he has a good prognosis and speedy recovery. Please keep us posted on his progress and thank you for your message.


More ways to protest Trump's screwing with our Postal Service...

1. Emailing the USPS Board of Governors:

Holly Figueroa O'Reilly @AynRandPaulRyan

If you can't protest in person, please consider emailing the USPS Board of Governors. Tell them to stop DeJoy.

2. I'm considering emailing the offices of companies I pay bills to by mail (utilities, insurance, etc.) with a request to extend the due dates on my bills by say, 5-days to allow for potential mail delays, with a note stating "due to recent Trump administration changes in the Postal Service".

Enough requests like that could result in these companies pressuring Trump to reverse those changes.

Millions of Americans who normally vote in person on election day will turn to early voting or mail-in ballots this fall — but that only works if you understand your state's election rules, deadlines and how to ensure your vote is counted.

Driving the news:
Axios is launching an interactive resource, built on research by RepresentUs, a nonpartisan election reform group, to help voters across the country to get the information they need.

"This election year, voters need to take more time and effort to navigate the challenges of a pandemic," U.S. Elections Assistance Commissioner Donald Palmer tells Axios.

It will be critical for voters to have updated information on their options "to make sure that this election is a true reflection of the will of the people," said Matt Strabone, senior counsel for RepresentUs.

The article includes clickable links to state web sites for applying for mail-in ballots.

Also shows various rules for all states regarding:

* Ballots mailed to active voters
* No excuse needed
* Allowing due to COVID-19
* Excuse required
* Applicable deadline dates for:
* Deadline to request application
* Early in-person voting date
* Mail ballot deadline
