February ended with a major storm and we joined the rest of the country with a visit by the polar vortex. Projected to get another dusting tonight. Trying to keep in perspective - irrigation season begins in 5 weeks.
Those of you with outside livestock know the trials and tribulations to keep everyone healthy, fed and watered. Sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. I was pleased with my pre-planning moving stock close to water troughs that can be heated and brought down a weeks worth of hay. Only 12 inches of snow predicted to last 5 days. First night dropped 3 feet of snow. I dug walkways everywhere and unburied the chicken house openings. By day 3 below 20 degree temperatures were projected to last 10 plus days.
Fortunately I have neighbors, politically we may differ but are always ready to assist each other.
‘Venezuela blames sabotage & ‘US electricity war’ after major power outage’, RT.com, 8 Mar, 2019
“Thousands of commuters in Caracas had to walk home as a power outage shut down the capital’s subway, resulting in massive traffic jams.The lights also went out in the largest airport of Caracas.
The outage was caused by “deliberate sabotage” at the Guri hydroelectric power plant, which provides most of the country’s energy, local media reported.
Ninety years ago, capitalism was near death, or at least, it'll be 90 years in October. Black Tuesday happened in October in 1929. A few years later, FDR was elected as president and decided it would be best to put capitalism on life support with a jobs program and Social Security.
I've lost all patience with moderates, centrists, incrementalists and mainstream establishment democrats who think the status quo is not so bad, just needs a little tweaking around the edges. They'd be satisfied just getting rid of Trump – which is fine as far as that goes, it just doesn't go nearly far enough.

Ha! I wondered how Booby was going to bury the findings (or lack of) this RUSSIAN!!! boondoggle eating up taxpayer money and preventing REAL problems from being dealt with by those opportunist in DC.
How Mueller's team fears Russia could learn US secrets in court case
I'm on the road and too busy to write a complete essay. But this article by Phil Weiss (AIPAC: a self-loathing Jew) channels my muse, Hannah.
Omar’s critique goes to the nature of Zionism; and it was anticipated by the Jewish philosopher Hannah Arendt. Arendt’s prophetic writings about Zionism in the 1940s described the “double-loyalty” issue for American Jews that Israel would bring on them, by compelling them to be “the lobbies” for an embattled Jewish state.
Something to keep in mind…
