  1. I wonder if Liz Cheney, one of the most conservative GOP'ers, is likely to fit that bill? However, the fact that Pelosi appointed her, and her declared stand on the Big Lie, will probably count against her.
  2. One has to wonder how some folks can honestly still deny that this is happening given that level of evidence.
  3. "Visual evidence can cut to the core of the debate in a way that words cannot and communicate complex issues to everyone," said Rebecca Moore, a director of Google Earth, in a blog post on Thursday. Google Earth Timelapse
  4. Given the context of your post, that is probably bad advice......
  5. From CNN "Less than one day later, the General Assembly voted Tuesday to override the governor's veto, making their state the first in the country to outlaw gender-affirming treatment for trans youth."

    Cosmos

    I don't rightly know. I have heard maize farmers refer to it as 'mielie pes', or "maize pest", but I have seen cattle graze on it too. It is certainly invasive, especially on fallow land. Some of the cosmos fields are vast!

    Cosmos

    From Wikipedia:- Cosmos species are native to scrub and meadowland in Mexico where most of the species occur. In the United States, some varieties may be found as far north as the Olympic Peninsula in Washington, but the range also extends through Central America to South America as far south as Paraguay[citation needed]. One species, C. bipinnatus, is naturalized across much of the eastern United States and eastern Canada.[5] It is also widespread over the high eastern plains of South Africa, where it was introduced via contaminated horsefeed during the Anglo-Boer War.[6]

    Cosmos

    I have just returned from a week's fishing trip to the Natal Midlands and on my drive back I noticed that the Cosmos flowers have started appearing. Down here these flowers have always been the herald that Winter is on its way - appearing in early Autumn and creating quite spectacular fields of colour all along the highways and byways of the Highveld. I did a bit of reading up and discovered that they are originally from Mexico, and were introduced to South Africa around the early 1900's. I also see they are fairly widespread in the US and I was wondering if they are also considered as early indicators of Winter over there? (I am assuming that they also flower in the US Autumn)
  9. Try this one.... Nanothermite and the WTC
  10. The hottie in the rainbow striped jumpsuit and shades?
  11. My personal best bass taken on Lake Okeechobee, FL. (We don't get many bass that size down here in SA!)
  12. This headline from CNN just illustrates exactly what a farce the senate "trial'' is really going to be, especially after having sworn an oath to be impartial jurors. Three GOP senators talk strategy with Trump's team
  13. Perhaps he is trying the change his image of being so 'boring'.....?
  14. Indeed. The largest trauma center in this country was completely empty on New Year's day, as a direct result of a curfew and a ban on alcohol sales. All those resources were available to help deal with Covid related cases instead. From The Citizen:-
