It is truly sad and maddening with the latest mass shootings in California, Texas and Ohio. What's even more maddening is that nothing will be done about it.

I hope RangeRover is having a good trip to San Francisco and elsewhere. I was relieved when she had posted that a friend would be traveling with her. Looking forward to reading her comments upon her return.

Thoughts going out to El Paso, thoughts going out to Dayton. Where in the name of heck are we heading?

This is what happens when you disenfranchise people and create a system of massive wealth inequality and then mask the reasons why this is happening by offering up standard boogiemen: Muslims, Mexicans, women, liberals, PC snowflakes, deadbeats, welfare cheats, etc.

When you give exploited people with an already distorted view of the world another massive distortion, then inevitably bad things will happen.

Yes, I hope she has fun too. It's a pity we don't get on better but that's life, I guess.

Good to see you around anyway, Lizzie.

Politics is not my strong point (I had to read this a few times) but I understand exactly what you're saying, Choc.

Being lazy today. Back tomorrow to the Real World.

John K, hope you weren't affected by the bad weather over there. I saw footage of a tornado in Luxembourg along with hearing that there were also tornadoes in the Netherlands including Amsterdam.

Being SanFrancisco-sick. Wish I stayed in it. Bought there entire DVD collection with fave Perry Mason. I've DVD player with screen built in - aunt's gift decade back to 18's birthday.
This travel didn't disappoint. Except few weeks is too little time to look around San Francisco, the various sightseeings, I may've seen just 5-9 % of it. But, the lady we, I & Daiana, lived with got great house with cool interior design. She'd been great host, polite & generous. We liked her simultaneously. & she got pool which Daiana basked in to get joy & fun. She's good diver, you see. Despite being dwarf. Btw, lady is marvellous cook, especially liked pancakes & pecan pie which knew/read about & even tasted pecans b4, they sell it here, in this city, but didn't taste real American pecan pie. She did it with caramel. Ditto about real chocolate chip cookie. I got to bite it too. It's got good crisp.
Put chocolates bought in SF in special attache case, it's keyed, then you retrieve chosen candy to eat. It's sweet food savings. Made good bargain deal buying 2 interesting chairs to the flat - to cat & I. & few useful house items. f.ex. lamp in sun shape which been dream since about 10, copy-book to paint in it, pic frame.

Short notice: the cat you see to the left is the best. Not counting your indoor cat who might have habit sitting at your left side when you post at SmileySmile.

Gene Tierney is beautiful. She's talented.

Glad you enjoyed the trip, RR. I can imagine it was too short to see everything in San Fran.

I'm also glad that you enjoyed your trip to San Francisco.
The U.S. isn't known generally for great chocolate, but San Francisco is an exception.
And you got a chair for your kitty. Sweet!

Thanks, people. Saved money to it since 2012. Would be cool next to visit L.A. Wishful thinking.

I suscribed today to 33 new cat FB pages. 3D I'm glad. Anybody else glad? Tell. police It starts to freeze in streets. Anybody got freezing streets? Sth. else - did puzzles in evening, surrealistic painting by inidentified painter. Bought in San Francisco. I's initially going to give it as gift to friend/ fam member. But then I say "Why do it?", thus it stayed. Tongue I'm greedy when it comes to gifts, yep. Ain't I cool. Anybody likes puzzles?

Cat and dog pages are just about all FB is good for, outside of seeing photos of far flung family and nice posts from Brian and Al's pages.

Freezing? Not here. We are under a Heat Advisory, temperature feels like 42 C.
Our "low" temperature tonight will be 27C. I've never known it to be this hot so late in the summer.

I do puzzles of all types to keep my mind going. If you mean jigsaw puzzles I love them but don't have a good place to do them. And Tanner the cat loves playing with the pieces.

Anybody likes puzzles?

I have reader's block (again) so for relaxation I do sudoko puzzles. As Lizzie says, it keeps the mind going.

I love jigsaw puzzles too--I usually do them on holiday with my son and grandson. Then there's often a spare table that's not needed for anything else (this is a problem at home!).

Yes, jigsaw. I'm used to saying it puzzles, as we do here. Yes, dog pages can be nice, pics with cute puppies. There's cat page Neuro Dan - Feather Dan which starts daily with "Hi friends Leroy here". :D Like it when human writes facebook in cat voice. Popular Cole & Marmalade page by cat man Chris. Very kind page Justin Fire Survivor that helps various injured cats; today cat been timely saved by nice people donating to pay vet bills, limit time 12 noon, if nobody saved till then, the cat woulda been put to sleep. Few pages about cats with Manx syndrome & the other handicapped cats with vivacious characters despite these difficulties. Humor page Cat Comedy TV & cat news page The Kitten Cat Post, like famous newspaper title pun.

Favorite page is about Manx syndrome cat Scooter Bug. Bug's "momma", human woman he lives with, very nice lady, doesn't tell just about his daily activities but she as well tells about her son Nick ("Bug" says "brudder Nick"). She said recently he will be 18 next week, he got few health issues of his own, wrist ache & backache, yet he plays drums in his school marching band, they even tour different cities. Smb. real nice got idea in comments that everybody send Nick in mail greeting cards with well wishes & his mom went happy that people cared about Nick's special day. She says that Nick doesn't read about it, she made birthday posts hidden, to give him surprise when he gets cards. Really nice people, positive cheery page with good vibes & sunshine. Bug is very sweet cat, the boy really cares about him, helps mom with Bug's vet visits & in house. They've 2 cats - Bug & Tinkerbell.
