How are the efforts to keep bush fires beaten down going in your area? I haven't seen any recent news about them and hope they have passed you by for the season. We have had an incredibly dry late Winter over here and are almost giddy about the last few snow storms this March. Positive thoughts for the men about to be executed in Indonesia.
The bushfire season has past the worst and, thankfully, it's not been as bad this year as it has in the past. Which probably means that next year will be truly dreadful. The ongoing snow in your part of the world is something of which we are intensely envious. We have just, this week, entered our 'official' Autumn, so I don't think we're going to get too many more extremely hot days and we're looking forward to the first decent rains since November.
The two young men in Indonesia are unfortunate victims of greed, in this case, their own. Much though I despise capital punishment, I equally despise the drug trade. The whole situation is sordid and awful.
Indeed we are having a snowy Winter. Unfortunately, the weather pattern is in somewhat of a reversed historical trend. The jet stream comes over the northern latitudes of the continent in a fairly standard wavelength bringing various levels of Arctic cold down across the landmass during the year. However, the current jet stream has an irregular quaver that is causing deeper trenches to set up for longer periods of time in non-standard locations. Denver, Colorado is already having 70 degree F weather while coastal Atlantic cities are in the 20's. At times I wish I were more positive about the whole global climate issue but its difficult when I've been watching flowers bloom in my garden since February.
As a Coloradoan I am acutely aware of the inherent problems with the drug trade. The rapid rise of imprisonment in our country is directly tied to the "War on Drugs" campaign created during the Ronald Reagan administration, rising from a 1973 ratio of approximately 100 in 100,000 people experiencing some form of incarceration to over 550 in 100,000 in 2013. The only viable success in this campaign has come in the form of for-profit prisons that have provided above average profits to shareholders. So sad to see our systems compromised over and over by capitalism on steroids.
I can't recall the author of a post WWII paper citing why the United States had a very real propensity for becoming the next Fascist empire to emerge onto the world's stage but he appears to be somewhat prophetic at this point.
Ultimate pi day. Been waiting for this date many years. Going to tackle a math problem or two and but a lottery ticket. I'll pretend it supports the sciences.
It's only Pi-day in the States :) The rest of us just have 'normal' dates ...
Looks like we've gone straight from Summer into Winter. One day, 38C, the next 18C and freezing rain (though not much rain). Bizarre. Indeed, we're trialling mandatory sentencing over here, though a lot of people are not terribly happy about it. Having said that, there's a number of Judges over here who need to retire sooner rather than later; their opinions on such crimes as domestic violence is Victorian in every sense of the word.
hello from me this is very nice region
Greetings Tajmikistan -
Yes, this is a pleasant region. Welcome.
Rain! We have rain for the first time since early November. How wonderful.
Wonderful, indeed. I'm putting positive thoughts out there for a regular pattern of rainfall to come your way. We here in the Rockies have continued to receive snow above 7000' and some rain in the valleys over the last few weeks. At this time we are looking at 90% of historical snow pack in the Colorado River watershed.
Looked like quite the storm that passed over the northern region of Australia. Nothing fun about typhoons/hurricanes. Been in a couple while stationed in the southern United States.
Good to see some new nations in the UGP. The NS World certainly has seen an explosion in newcomers putting the total over 144k.
Crocuses blooming in the lawn, pussy willow waking up, first butterfly of the year. I take great pleasure in the arrival of Spring.
Make mine a Bloody Mary with a pickled string bean,
