Mr. Squirrel Knows What To Do In Order To Stay Dry!

I walked out onto my patio to watch the rain and noticed someone found a way to stay dry. Clinging to the screen under the overhang. 

Independence Day: Enjoying Your Freedom? Don’t Thank a Veteran…

You got that right!!

The Ghosts of Tal'Afar

Independence Day for Americans is a day where we signify the birth of a nation; the start of the grand experiment known as democracy and the establishment of a set of systems and values that would go on to define the United States, of which we are still continuing to how should I say, “refine” as necessary.  Perhaps “tweak” is a more apropos; refinement lends more towards the purposeful processing, removing of impurities or unwanted portions in order to reduce the content of the substance down to a more pure, valuable or useful state. Some may think the United States is being refined, others may think the contrary. Nevertheless, days like the 4th of July have great meaning behind them, that like

24 national monuments threatened by Trump’s executive order

Corrections and clarifications: Based on information from the National Park Service and released by the White House, a previous version of this story erroneously included the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument on a list of sites subject to the executive order. According to Proclamation 8327, the monument is 6,310 acres – not square miles – and therefore would not meet the 100,000-acre threshold in the executive order, the Department of the Interior says.

WASHINGTON — At least two dozen national monuments are at risk of losing their federally protected status as a result of President Trump’s executive order asking for an unprecedented review of their designations.

Under the 1906 Antiquities Act, either Congress or the President can protect federal lands by designating them as a national monument. And while Congress has occasionally revoked that status for existing monuments, no president…

🌺 “I’ve been so excited to share this with you all. I found the Healthwell Foundation through the vast mountain of resources on this website!

Once my application was complete, I was approved instantly and received my packet in the mail about 6 days later. My reimbursement is a little over $1,200 per year.

To apply, I had to put together various documents. It was a bit confusing but they are very helpful if you need to call for clarification. The whole process took me about three weeks.

Don’t let the low-income requirement scare you off. Try applying anyway! You may qualify. The income limit for a family of 3 is about $80,000. Thank you so much, from the bottom of…

To The Wildfire Of War

I also weep for our troups. The snake is slithering behind our backs and putting too many of our young people into harm’s way. You are right, chuq. It’s happening so quietly. There is not one word spoken about this problem on the media. Some more distractions to keep us ignorant of many of what is important.

In Saner Thought

Before I begin let me say….I know that these types of posts are not popular…I say that by the number of visitors that do NOT come to them.  But that matters not for I may be butting my head against a wall but I would hope that if one US soldier reads my posts they will see that there is at least one American that cares what happens to them.  Sad I am sure they are well aware that the country cares nothing about their plight….but they do have a friend in IST.

I see the modern day Nero is Tweeting (fiddle was replaced in the 21st century) while the world is burning….and war becomes the only answer to problems and situations.

Trump keeps adding US troops to the world’s conflicts……

Reports from earlier this month that Pentagon has been increasing deployments of special forces around the Middle East and…

Guest Star: Mitry the Once in a Lifetime Cat

Jo Ann’s story about Mitry is a real tear jerker. Mixed with Jo Ann’s description of his life with her – the devotion between them – makes for a beautiful love story. Thanks for this lovely story to start my day.

Hi everyone,

Today’s guest post comes from Jo Ellen and is a heart breaking story of love and cats!:

IN REMEMBRANCE OF MITRY

“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.”    Gandhi.

image001

A dusty gold-tone frame contains 4 pictures that rested face down on the same shelf for years.  But they weren’t forgotten. Too hard to bear the waterfall of guilt they elicited.  For years, it was more than I could bear.

How excruciating does life have to be before you know it’s time to let go?

It’s been 15 years since he passed away and yet I still don’t know if taking Mitry to the vet for the final time was best for me or for Mitry.

When he screamed at the pain as the vet stuck the IV into his leg, he was fighting to stay alive.  Couldn’t the vet give him something for…
