There was no interdigitating with Obama during Benghazi, he handed the whole thing off. Obama hands off Benghazi, not interested. CIC is briefed for 15 minutes, then nothing. No follow up, he's not interested, not engaged. He voted "present" for the briefing, no direction, no outrage. Nothing, nada, zip.

Chris “Tingles” Matthews is interdigitating with the Obama administration again, trying to improve Washington’s “good name”.

In the dim, far-off days of my youth, co-sexual interdigitation in public would raise eyebrows. In today's milieu, there seem to be no constraints on public acts of what used to be intimacies. Mirabile dictu!



Keep Faith with the Fallen of Benghazi! Let the Obama Regime, for once, tell the Truth!

Fiat Justitia, Ruat Coelum!

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

We had the big snow yesterday — still going on at midnight. I was giving a candidate party at a friend’s house and people were calling as late as an hour before asking if we were going to cancel. We carried on, but I got my car stuck 3 times getting there and home. I guess I really do need to have my suspension tweaked!

City plows were nowhere to be seen.

Nothing to worry about here. It’s dry now, but we’re expecting some rain and snow today. Maybe an inch, no blizzards. It’s 34 right now.

I don’t know what our total yesterday was, but it looks like 8-10 inches to me. It was deceptive because it was a rain/snow so it was melting as it was snowing. My backyard looks like a Currier and Ives Christmas scene.

Some religious sects are so strict, they behead people for premarital interdigitation.

83% of Americans think Washington and Obama have a spending problem. They need to fix that and stop spending. A+++

Barry’s method—do nothing but fidget, wait
Stay quiet, hands clasped, interdigitate
His sign says “gone fishin’”
He ain’t no magician
Though the sheep think he can prestidigitate

My thumb and his eye did interdigitate and he had a whole new way of looking at things.

I'd run out of coffee and forgotten to buy more, so I'd dressed quickly and driven to the store to buy some, Chilly. Anyhow it wasn't until my return that I discovered that I hadn't interdigitated the front of my pants. Good thing I hadn't gone shopping commando.

The snow was to start here at 4am, but still nothing. I am beginning to think it will be a bust. Schools are dismissing early, but not until 1pm. I got groceries yesterday, I have my kindle charged. After some chatting here, some light housework, I will be in my comfy chair reading and watching it snow. Bring it on.

My crew think I should have Missy put down....$100 to do that...$30/week for diapers, not to mention the meds. I can see their point. Just not ready, and DH is most definitely not ready.

As long as Missy is happy being with her humans, then just let nature take its course.

One of my friends couldn’t see why I catered to Kitty boy so in his last, long decline, but my contractor compadre understood perfectly, him having both an ancient cat and poodle who are failing, and hence require a lot of extra attention from he and his wife. Kitty boy was not in pain, and his end was peaceful and without trauma-worth every carry to and from the litter box and every spoon feeding.

I think that’s exactly right. If she’s not in pain, let her ease out on her own and don’t let anyone make you feel guilty about it. She’s your dog.

I was coming out of a store yesterday after just mindless chit chat with the cashier who mentioned she was from Oregon - I said something about how pretty it was or something - this other woman was standing by the door listening and just started up a conversation with me! lol I’m not making fun because I can talk to anyone - but she was so chatty and turned out to be from the Pittsburgh area - I think she said Thornburg? I just kept smiling thinking of you two as this lady talked about her nurse daughter snagging a surgeon and moving down here! lol

When I was a workers comp drone, we had “beggars” with will work for food signs, bicycles, and even borrowed kids hanging out at the office building, and at the HEB across the street, accosting us in the parking lot.

The voc eval and I decided to do our very own survey, and after a bit of covert activity, found that the kids were borrowed, and ALL the beggars had cars and homes-most were college students and two were drug dealers-we gave those two up to LEOs. So much for random acts of kindness-and yes, I’m an incurable cynic...

A lot of people consider themselves compassionate when they warehouse a disabled/elderly relative, too-I believe that is cruelty. I’d never do that, and I’d take myself out rather than live in those warehouses, but that is just me. I treat my pets better than that...

No snow here-53 and sunny-

When looking at how nothing
Makes any kind of sense at all
But if you interdigitate it,
You can see how we will fall

Like Rome, with too much power
And anger between the classes
And underneath it all, we hear
The constant howling of the masses

Demanding bread and circuses
And everything else for free-
Including some things that are
Out of reach for you and me...

Maybe I need a new career writing doomsday poetry?
