In addition to gays and lesbians, Drollinger — who The New York Times recently referred to as the Trump Cabinet's “shadow diplomat” — also laid blame on people with “depraved minds,” environmentalists and those who deny the existence of God for igniting "God's wrath."


So, there you have it - we're all doomed!

I wonder if that nut-job's post is super-annuated.

No wonder many people are confused or scared.


We're in a "blind men and the elephant" phase of this disease. The CDC and WHO have the best picture and have more consistently reliable information than any other sources out there. Will the picture change? Inevitably. It means the scientific method is alive and well and working to solve the puzzle.


If you read or hear anything that intends you to respond emotionally, avoid it. If you get fearful or angry, stop using it. Those sources don't help you or help your friends and family. They're not information, they're manipulation. The fewer layers of "interpretation" and presentation you go through, the better.



So while this is going down, stay home and stay safe. It's going to take some time. We'll all get through this together.

Well put, Miketo! The old British saying from WWII still holds:
"Keep Calm & Carry On".

Sensibly, of course.

Di & Barb & anyone else interested, here is this afternoon's sketch. My intention is to show a DP &/or a 5er on the facing page. That's the plan.

Di, if you hate drawing, that's it ... unless you suddenly decide it's worth pursuing. Then it's a vast, new playground!Click image for larger version

Dennis and Irene have been coming over to help with Connie's construction almost every day since they arrived here. Today one of them found a swarm of honey bees in a creosote bush about 25 feet from the RV.

What amazing creatures! Three have gotten inside where Sena has hunted them down, killed and eaten them. I wish I had a hive for them. The mandarin orange trees could sure use their help.

R U an RV Mutant too?

A bit of news.

We’ve not seen Hayden for many days. But we have begun some progress for us.

The toilet broke, and will soon be replaced. The water pump died and the AMAZING carabiner door latch will be GONE.

We found a great mobile RV tech: Toy Doctor!

We are going to be sequestered for long enough for them to fix all of Gwen’s ills.

That’s about it for now.
I love all of the chatter and art work! Wish I could emulate it.

BTW, C-19 has a ways to go before the end. My prediction comes from my son:


“This is not the beginning. It is not the beginning of the end. But it is almost the end of the beginning.” (Credit to Winston Churchill)

No, no ruler. For the first 8 years of my life I attended parochial school. I shy away from rulers. Besides, Earlene's backhand is more than enough to try and straighten me and my stick men out!


Instead of no hair, do you think I have a particular hair color. How do you draw a head with a ruler. Sheesh!

Ah, I see!
Well, as far as the head goes....I was going to say draw around a small round object.....or big round object? Uhh, you choose, you're the artist.
I won't say use a protractor 'cause it's a sharp object.
Hair color?
No clue.
