Open Thread: Think Warm Thoughts

I know Alaska has had a weirdo Winter, but here in New York we’re ready for it all to end.

For now, here’s a photo from spring of last year at Bird Creek.

Think warm thoughts.


Actually, the water was freezing.

    Mag O’ the Desert/Mountains with Bears-Inquring mikey’s is curious if thou hast ever partaken of prickle pear (tuna) pie ?

    Fred Phelps,of Westboro Baptist church infamy,is in a nursing home because it finally dawned on him he is one sick SOB. Altogether now,Awwwwwwwwwwright! πŸ™‚

    Seeing Palin’s mouth and that Big Gulp in a different thread got mikey to thinking about advertisements that went beyond the accepted norms-think Palin in any photo-and then I remembered this jewel from 1975 and an innocuous Sears and Roebuck catalog advertising Johnsonville boxer shorts. It even had a song writ about it.

    Enjoy,unless you are a total prude. πŸ™‚

      oh. forgot.
      soil under double cover was in 38-40 degree range at dawn this morning. if it edges up a smidge and hangs there at the coolest time of day , I’ll get to plant spinaches and lettuces and other cool weather yummies soon πŸ™‚

      Yup,I is chuckling. I can see my whole garden,but it is a wet mess. Still haven’t burnt last years asparagus off. East wind today and chance of snow tonight. Blackbirds are back so Spring is springing. BTW-stores in iowa put out garden seeds in January for some reason. Tell the bears to stay away or else. Let them ponder what or else means. Enjoy your forest. It will be a couple of months before I will recognize a corn field. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

        My whole kitchen is full of seed trays today. I am planting stuff to put outside in 6 -8 weeks ( I hope) when frost is done.
        We could still get whopper snows – never know here anymore- and blow-you-off-your-feet week of cold wind through to about April 15. Last frost date is around May1-15 here.
        Took a walk in this morning’s snow and found all kinds of signs spring is sneaking up on us here too- especially in under the trees where it is warmer.
        Waterfalls off the mountains are still frozen, no sign of mountain goats below the snow, and the relatively few deciduous trees aren’t showing that purply red almost-ready-to-do-budding color thingy yet so there is quite a ways to go yet.
        Dang bear finally went to bed in mid to late December. Hope they all snooze for their usual time at least. Is pretty much a given a given they’ll be back in 6-8 weeks.
        The most fun right now is the gaining light at over 5 minutes a day dealie. course it also means we can see the messes we’ve been making all winter now too πŸ™‚

    β€œSince the passage of the farm bill, states have found ways to cheat, once again, on signing up people for food stamps,” House Speaker John Boehner said to reporters on Thursday. β€œAnd so I would hope that the House would act to try to stop this cheating and this fraud from continuing.”

    Another warm fuzzy thought from wingnuts that hate the poor. SOH Boner calling compassionate guvs who found a way to get around cuts in SNAP programs so the poor don’t go hungry,crooks and frauds. Just like the wingnut jeebus would do,I’m thinking. god may love you,Boner. I sure as hell don’t! Have a rill pissy day.

    Here’s my warmest thoughts for the day. Another Fake Noize “Obamacare” victim. This one is a running preacher,gets hit by a pick-up,thrown onto the hood,somehow manages to swing his head around the side of the truck and take out the passenger side window-without breaking his neck,lands on the pavement in the fetal position with broken bones sticking out everywhere,a foot nearly severed,slips in and out of consciousness without ever losing consciousness,spends more than a week in a hospital and it only costs him a 100,00 bucks, and the first thought through his head is he doesn’t have insurance thanks to “Obamacare.” Todd Starnes has outdid hisself this time. Eveyone knows a single aspirin in a hospital will cost fifty grand. Of course it had to happen to some good ol’ boy down South,doncha know.

      And that doof blames anyone/anything but his insurance company? Pffft!
      And we don’t get to hear how much the old insurance company would have left him holding the bag on? Pffft!
      $550/mo insurance for a family of 6 doesn’t sound like a very good policy… but I don’t know much about places away from here.
      Howsomever, did this guy go after his state and their games ?
      And the insurance companies?
