WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM COVID and other viruses:

1. Respirator masks, minimum. KN95, N95, N99. Wear them every time you leave your house. Do not take them off in any building or near crowds of people.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) will be the second Republican nominated this week for House speaker, after Scalise abandoned his bid on Thursday when he could not get enough votes.

This is how we got here: https://shero.substack.com/p/scalise-speaker-withdrawal-signals

High concentrations of #SARSCoV2 detected at all 14 NYC wastewater plants. If you live in NYC & have noticed more people w/ "common cold" symptoms, it might really be due to rising #COVID rates

Biden requested $37B in add'l federal spending for police. This year, he agreed to cut $28B in public health grants that are absolutely essential (& insufficient) for rebuilding a massively defunded national public health system.
Don't tell me "a vote for Biden is a vote against fascism"; it's not.

And just so we're clear: IF YOU HAVE ALREADY HAD COVID, AND YOU THINK YOU'RE STILL NOT ONE OF THE IMMUNE COMPROMISED COMMUNITY ...

WAKE UP FROM YOUR DENIAL, B/C YOU'RE ONE OF US NOW.
Your immune system was permanently damaged by Covid.

Attorney General Ken Paxton called several lawmakers and threatened them with political consequences if they voted for his impeachment, according to state Rep. Charlie Geren. Yeah, that'll help... :eyeroll:

The TX GOP *really* didn't want to be in the Fed's crosshairs over this. It's the ONLY reason they finally took action: to save their own corrupt butts!

Tall Bearded Iris, "Alcazar", bred in France in 1908 by Vilmorin; introduced in theVilmorin-Andrieu & Cie, catalogue de plantes 1918 - during WW1!

That means that my two earliest irises are both French in origin. Here's Sans Souci, introduced 1854:

Anyone good at iris identification?? I've got me a mystery. Iris was here when we bought the house.
It was here w/ another iris, heirloom Sans Souci.
Base of foliage on Mystery Iris is NOT purple. Runs between 26-30" tall depending on how much rain we get and when. Rhizomes. Looks like a neglecta?

If you're looking for ancient/GMO-free grains, or unusual heirloom legumes for your home garden, bookmark these folks: https://greatlakesstapleseeds.com

I just discovered them today while on a late hunt for hullless oats after my last order from overseas didn't materialize. Lots of GF grains too.

Sackett v EPA - by Justice Alito - writing for 5 Justices, they reject EPA's authority to regulate wetlands with a "significant nexus" to navigable waters - the waters must have a continuous surface connection to navigable waters

Well this is going to screw over several states w/ inland wetlands

I'm young, I have arthritis in my hands, and I love to garden. I also love functioning at the end of the day.
So I look for tools to ease my workload.
