Infidel, did I give you that link on the Christian Right? I don't recall ever reading that article. :/

I'm actually heartbroken I haven't written anything good for your round-ups the last two weeks. I know I'm not doing anything at the level of an Alexandria Petri or Owen Ellickson (his Trump Dialogues should be committed to book format and placed in the archives), but I'm a bit distracted getting NaNoWriMo set up for the Lakeland region. (shameless writing plug here)

I thought it was a link in one of your posts. Maybe I'm mistaken. Gets difficult sometimes keeping track of where I found stuff.

Don't worry if you don't show up in the round-ups -- it's very much a chance thing what I include, and every week I go through two or three periods of being so turned off by politics that I don't keep anything political at all.

Well, counter tracking wise, I'm sitting pretty this month because I posted a Florida General Election ballot reminder for 2016 and it is BLOWING UP the chart. My 2012 one did too. It's awesome. I get people from JAPAN looking for it.

Now if I can just get them to buy my books... /long sigh

Ohhh man ... that little cat loves that brush, eh? ... I love them little guys, whenever I play around their head, neck, ears ... I cant get rid of them ... love playing with them little guyz! {:-) ... (dogs the same ... actually I had my snakes to where they would slide back and forth through my hands and fingers to play too, also had a few pet rats and lizards for play)

Beautiful photo of the mountains of Pluto on the heading ... incredible what we are able to view these dayz, in comparison to when I was a child in grammar school and what simple stuff fascinated me at that time!

Funny how we look at a sentence and image, and get our own individual ideas of what it is ... example here ... when you said that Noah should have skipped one animal ... I laughed and thought, it must be the 'human'. Then I look at the cartoon and see the Woodpecker, and first think, that is what some African Americans see as the hazards of having 'peckerwoods' (white people) in control. But, I reckon ole Noah would say that "Animals Lives Matter", eh? {:-)

Must say I thought the house in Rural Russia was unique with its art ... my first thought would have been Roswell,NM though.

I like the "trickledown- or- treat" explanation ... that's how our politicians view us when they explain their twisted rubbish ... as children that will suck it up.

One of my favourites here has to go to Dimitry (or Dmitry?) Agakov ... great move on the financial firm ... and inspirational story.

Yeah ... imagine if that guy on the plane was a middle easterner, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh ... a real freak out would have occurred! {:-) ... folks love their phones, in flames or not, makes me think of that Elvis tune ... "Burning Love"

National Geographic photographer collection ... awesome!

Fascinating pieces on the tree that grows 40 fruits and NGC247 ... I have alwayz been puzzled and wondered ... if there is an edge or end to the universe, what is after that? ... and after that? ... I'll never understand I guess. Wouldnt surprise me though of the fruit tree thing, although I never heard of it before, we are learning to do much.

Unique looking bookstores of America ... but fitting as well, a bookstore should be a place of comfort to the senses.

Later Infidel ....

Thanks for all the linky goodness, Infidel, including for the one to The Raisin. I just enjoyed a tour through those amazing bookstores. How sad that there are so few left. I am so afraid to click on one of your links, because I wind up clicking on more. I read about the robotic hand and then clicked on a story about ALS patients being able to type 6 words a minute with a brain implant. I should wait until later in the day to read your link compilations, because I never get anything else done!

Paul: Careful, the wingnuts will claim we're rigging the election by letting the Japanese vote.

Ranch: A year ago Pluto was just a blurry dot to our best instruments. Now it's a world. Those mountains are probably made of ice, by the way. It's cold enough there that ice is like rock, and the gravity is low enough that it can stand pretty high.

There's no edge to the universe, but it's not infinite. As for what's beyond, Stephen Hawking has some ideas about other universes -- but this one is quite big enough.

Nonnie: Certainly there's no shortage of stuff on the net. It keeps me occupied even though I've been home all day for over three weeks now.

A lot of great photos (as usual) this week — too many to mention. Hope you're feeling better.
