CNN is on "bus watch". Senators all getting on buses to go to the White House.

Just saw Al Franken getting close to getting on it. How many buses does it take to get all 100 senators to the White House???

Yo, twogunsid any gray's running in the Derby this year???

Have been trying to find photos of the horses and must be looking on the wrong sits.....can't find if any gray's are running this year. Thanks. And, Todd Pletcher is running 6 horses this year??? Wow, wonder if that's some sort of record.

On Point Radio on NPR: today: "The Fourth Turning" anyone listen to it??

.............1997 book The Fourth Turning expands on the theory, focusing on a fourfold cycle of generational types and recurring mood eras in American history. The theory is anchored in multidisciplinary social sciences, examining changes in human attitudes and behavior and in the social mood over time.

.............For example, Strauss and Howe made major predictions about how the Millennial Generation, then only eight years old, would transform the behaviors and attitudes of teens and young adults over the next ten, fifteen, twenty years. All of these predictions have turned out to be largely correct. For example:

In 1991, rates of youth crime, teen pregnancy, and substance abuse among Gen-X teens were rising to alarming levels, prompting many youth experts to forecast further increases (and even the emergence of urban “superpredators”) by the year 2000. But Howe and Strauss predicted that “substance abuse, crime, suicide, unwed pregnancy will all decline” as Millennials passed through adolescence. Today, rates of teen crime, pregnancy, and alcohol and tobacco consumption have reached all-time lows.

...........Strauss and Howe have also made startlingly accurate predictions about older generations. Twenty years ago, the authors forecast that Silent Generation elders would bring a hip, youthful style to retirement communities, that Boomers would wage intense culture wars and bring a new values focus to midlife leadership, and that Gen-X young adults would bring a reputation for pragmatic, market-oriented, free agency to America’s workplaces. All of this has come to pass.

Ok.....it's the final four.....who ya rooting for??

Love the rookies.....S. Carolina, Ganzaga and Oregon......and I'm sick I didn't watch the women last night.

help......some videos on Huffington post won't load.......any suggestions?? Thanks. eom

Post cards that were sent on March 15......for The Ides of tRump

Has anyone heard anything about them?? Should have by now eh??

and now for something completely different.....our morning dove has taken over our robin's platform!

We had a robin on that platform having two sets of babies per season for at least 15 years.....and yesterday I saw one of our many nesting morning doves sitting on the platform!!!! We talked about it, kinda laughed saying that the platform might be to small for the dove as it's about 7 by 7 and I think to small for her. So today she's on it again!!! and the robin is giving her the evil eye. I hope she stays. One of our doves was pregnant almost ALL sommer......she had five sets of babies. Five sets of two doves apiece that's ten baby doves from just one dove!!!! Gonna be fun to watch.

and as to getting along or working with tRump, Paul Wellstone says it all.....

"There are forces within the Democratic Party who want us to sound like kinder, gentler Republicans.
I want a party that will STAND UP for Working Americans."
---Paul Wellstone.

I miss him so bad.......

My representative Tim Walz is running for Governor!!!!!

Dang it......is Mark Dayton not running again??

Wow, I think Rachel looks extremely tired.......huge bags under her eyes.....

love her to death and she's been I'm sure working her ass off. She needs a break, but how can she take it.....more shit going on everyday, and i'm sure she WANTS to be a part of it. But, she looks tired. Or is it just me??
