Putting Paid To The Lie …


Quite interesting … from the ‘horse’s mouth’ indeed! … ‘All four states that share a border with Mexico object to Drumpf’s wall and have put paid to his lies that the area is rampant with crime and lawlessness brought in by vicious immigrants. We all knew it was a lie, and now we have it straight from the horses’ mouths.’

Filosofa's Word

I think it’s pretty funny that while Trump carries on like a wild banshee about the need for a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, while he shrieks about violent criminals “pouring” across the border, the states that are actually on that border say there is no need for the wall.  And they have just about had enough of Trump’s exaggerations and lies affecting their states.  A few examples:

In New Mexico, House Bill 287 would ban construction of a wall on state land along the Mexico border. State Representative Angelica Rubio who sponsored the legislation says she doesn’t believe a wall would solve the problems that many have raised.

“I think when investing in communities, investing in our schools are ahead of the issues that are being raised in the long term will work out, knowing that we’re making those real investments.”

In addition, New Mexico Governor Michelle…

Please, can I bring some of my sisters out here tonight?”

Michelle Obama Brought the Crowd to Their Feet at the 2019 Grammys

For me, a big part of friendship is showing up for your girls – whether that’s for a birthday, a quick catch-up after work or a major milestone. So I am thrilled to be here for the one and only Alicia Keys at the #GRAMMYs.

She is one of the most genuine, caring, and thoughtful people I know – there’s no one better to help us all celebrate the unifying power of music!

Monday Morning Wake-Up Call (February 11th)

Early, on a very misty morning … ‘I steel myself for the day.’ … ~ Nellie Bridge, from “February 11″ from Echotheo Review, July 18, 2011

Live & Learn

The moon is out. The ice is gone. Patches of white
lounge on the wet meadow. Moonlit darkness at 6 a.m.

Again from the porch these blue mornings I hear an eagle’s cries
like God is out across the bay rubbing two mineral sheets together
slowly, with great pressure.

A single creature’s voice—or just the loudest one.
Others speak with eyes: they watch—
the frogs and beetles, sleepy bats, ones I can’t see.
Their watching is their own stamp on the world…

I steel myself for the day.

~ Nellie Bridge, from “February 11″ from Echotheo Review, July 18, 2011

Nighttime at the CN Tower, Toronto

Awesome structure … love the colors!! … ‘Nighttime at the CN Tower, Toronto … ‘

The Chicago Files

During the holidays back in December, I took this nighttime photo of the CN Tower in Toronto. The colors on the tower were magnificent! They changed quickly and morphed into solid hues such as red, green, blue, why, each color of the rainbow it seemed. However, I was lucky enough to get this particular shot with a cavalcade of colors.

Do you see above the tower where the clouds are lit up? I just love that! At 1,815′ (553.3m) I’d say that’s A LOT of lights!!!

If you look closely at the tower you’ll see more of the structure “flanking” the middle ‘color’ strip. I’ve been to revolving restaurant and observation areas, but not during this particular trip. There is also a glass box to stand on (not me, per se) just like the one at the Willis Tower (Sears Tower for those who remember its former moniker).

They’ve added…
