Saturday Passel of Potpourri – April Mixed Bag

We will start out with our usual “Deep thoughts from Kamala Harris. Entitled “Space is exciting.”

This one she talks about how space is exciting and how it affects and connects us all. This to our military, our space force.

Not so deep thoughts from our President.

Where do you find outfits like this? Easter Egg Hunt at the WH with Dr. Biden

I will conclude the post with a visit to a special plant.

Corpse Flower Stinks of Death I The Green Planet I BBC Earth

It appears to have fur, whiskers and teeth. Its blood-red surface is tough and warty, and it reeks of death. But this is no animal…

Wishing everyone a wonderful day.

    PS: That outfit that Jill Biden is wearing looks idiotic on her. And those shoes! Sheesh. She’s too old to be wearing such sandals!

    My faves are the birds (I could listen to them for hours on end in real life) and the lovely little snail family. ❤️ Thank you for always providing us with respite from a chaotic world. Blessings to you, Bunkerville!

    A much needed respite from a troubled week. Brava to the stitching of a nest canopy – THAT is amazing work. What a find. Mr. B enjoyed the birds of spring. As a youth he would go into the meadows by their home and imitate the calls to see what came.

    Some architects DO design great spaces. Mr. B always said if Steven Ehrlich would let him program the spaces, he’d have Ehrlich design our home. Not especially a fan of Cor-Ten steel (except no painting), but otherwise, this is a winner on a pint sized lot in Venice: https://buildipedia.com/at-home/design-remodeling/700-palms-residence-by-ehrlich-architects

    I suppose any of us could climb that ladder if presented with only 4 steps. You just get in trouble when you look down. 😱 Since that’s how my life feels this week I’d say working on one step at a time and looking up is the only way.

    While that tiled building is clearly in trouble, there is a major real-life version of it that has pre-occupied city officials and geotech teams and entertained the whole A/E industry for several years: the 58-story Millenium Tower in San Francisco. Not anchored to bedrock. Shoudda been. The solution was to drive piles to bedrock on 2 sides to hold it in after the fact. Their consulting engineer pointed out that would leave a solid edge and an un-anchored edge creating asymmetrical stresses in an earthquake and an unhappy building that will fracture under that force. How many years have they been building towers in SF? Lotsa finger pointing and lots of individual homeowners (it’s a condo) to deal with.

      I recall the San Fran controversy… people do crazy things, but our feathered friends seem to have figured out how to build a nest! There are so called modern buildings that are perfect in the right setting… just way too much ticky tack…. My father was a builder…and developer thus my continued interest in home building. Same here. looking forward, and must not look back and question… have a good week and thanks for your comment.

    If someone else is writing Harris’s stuff, and I think they are because Harris even even smart enough to come up with the imbecilic stuff she spews, those people must be splitting their sides when she takes it out and reads it in public.

        Given the likes of AOC, and Hank Johnson, she wins the title for sure as the most stupid of them all.

        When Harris looks in the mirror and asks “Who is the smartest of them all?”, the mirror shatters itself from laughing.

    Love the birds. The sewn together bird nest is interesting – as most nests are really.

    Wish people would stop attaching their crap music to these little vids. Gotta mute the majority of em.

    Well, okay then … if space affects us all, and if space connects us all, then why is space so freaking empty? I had to laugh the other day when Z observed that given the space inside Kamala’s head, supervising the U.S. Space Program was a “good call” on Dopey Joe’s part.

    As for climate-friendly military vehicles, does that mean no more blowing the crap out of enemy positions with our tanks? Then what is the use of having tanks?

    What can I say? Jill is no Melania. sigh…I’ll leave the rest (Harris and Biden) alone, LOL. AND I have seen the mail/boat thing in person…it’s quite impressive. Have a great day friend.
