Numerous things are weighing on my mind today and as I was scrolling through the latest news today, that old Pogo saying came to mind …

Georgians love ‘batshit crazy’

I foolishly believed that people, even republicans, still had some values, some sense of right and wrong, but that notion was dispelled this morning when I read that despite every horrible thing Margie Greene has done, the voters in her party still think she is great.

At the Georgia Republican Party convention this weekend, many attendees were seen wearing “We love Marjorie” pins and when asked about her appeal, more than 20 party activists and officials mentioned her disregard for political correctness and approach to politics as a “Washington outsider.” Many said they appreciate her willingness to say what she believes, even if it is inaccurate or dangerous — the same traits they admired in the former guy.

° BLOG ° Gabriele Romano

Today is the anniversary of D-Day, on 6 June 1944 the Allied landing in Normandy changed history

The extremely risky operation opened the way for the allies to free Europe from Nazism

The codename was Operation Overlord. On June 6, 1944, an ambitious plan and the sacrifice of many soldiers made it possible to land in Normandy, France, which went down in history as D-Day.

Europe on fire
Prior to the June 6 military operation, Germany had invaded France and was expanding across Europe. The allies decided to risk everything, organizing the landing on the beaches of northern France. Men and vehicles left Great Britain, where troops and equipment had been gathered in the previous weeks. The activity did not remain a secret to Germany, but, with skillful strategic work, the Allies led the enemy to believe that they would attack the Pas de Calais and not five beaches along…

Google translation of introduction: To the south Jerez de la Frontera – Andalusian evenings have a glow that comes out of the colors. The darkness is bright, the navy blue sky is bright, the dark green of the vegetation as well.

Jerez de la Frontera, 2015, 2016

Serile andaluze au o strălucire care iese din interiorul culorilor. Întunericul este luminos, cerul bleumarin e luminos, verdele închis al vegetației la fel.

Jerez nu este în prima linie a litoralului.

20160408_130442 (1)

Se află în apropiere de Cadiz care, fiind port, are un element de atracție în plus, dar Jerez întoarce spatele oceanului cu indiferență. Greu de crezut, nu?


Prima dată am ajuns cu avionul, cu un zbor de la Madrid (o oră), și am aterizat pe aeroportul care se află doar la câțiva kilometri de oraș.

20160408_134521 (1)

Un aeroport nou, cochet, cu personal de ispravă. Biroul de închiriere de mașini e chiar în holul de livrare a bagajelor, astfel că poți face ambele operațiuni simultan. Prima impresie, când pornești spre centru, este de oraș exotic, aerisit, prietenos, elegant.

A Growl-Worthy Story

Filosofa's Word

When I read Nicholas Kristof’s column yesterday evening, I found myself growling.  Republicans in this country need to put their money where their mouth is.  Talk is cheap, and actions speak louder than words! By their actions, the Republican Party is proving that all their talk about supporting families is just that … talk.  Take a look at Kristof’s column and I think you’ll be growling by the midpoint.

Turning Child Care Into a New Cold War

By Nicholas Kristof

Opinion Columnist

June 5, 2021

For a country brimming with “pro-family” politicians, the United States sure is a tough place to raise a family.

We Americans like to think “We’re No. 1,” but one recent study found that the United States was the second worst out of 35 industrialized countries as a place for families. We ranked behind Bulgaria. Behind Chile.
