Texas Governor Guy

Gov. Perry Gets Booked At Texas Courthouse After Indictment


Photo via NPR

Perry on his way to the pokey, fussy fussy. No need to be upset, plenty of US politicians have gone for a stay at the cement café. Let this be a reminder of the 3 separate Branches of Government & all that Checks and Balances stuff. The Executive Branch (Guv) cannot order members of the Judicial Branch (SA) to do a dayum thing. Do they not have Civics classes in crappy Texas schools?

Anyhow, wear your shower slippers because, well, fungi, and if you do happen to drop the soap Guv, remember tensing will only make rapey prison buttsex worse; so relax.

Have fun in prison!


In other SW news: Water stuff fell from the sky confusing and stranding people in Phoenix.


Good Garden News

Alright. A few more of the peppers are ready.


Serranos,  poblanos,  gypsy sweet peppers,  Pattypan squash,  and one of the cherry tomatoes.  Waiting on the habaneros which have begun to flower.

There’s a pic of the green beans somewhere,  I’ll upload it when I find it.

Here is the gypsy pepper bush:


I found the pic and here it is (along with the cherry tomatoes)





It took these puppies forever to flower, but alas, I now have poblano babies!

Hurricanes Are Such Fun

Hawaii is about to be hit by 2 tropical storms; hurricanes even. But that’s what they get for being an immensely beautiful yet completely boring State. Plus it has an enormous amount of Japanese descendents so, well, Godzilla.

Get to high ground people! Aloha and kanichiwa! Hunker down.

Gentrification and Street Gangs

Check out @latimes’s Tweet:

LA’s Echo Park bangers get displaced by newer residents with some dinero earned from professional employment? Yuppies.

How does it feel to finally realize the streets you fought & bled over NEVER belonged to you? Your Homies died for nothing?

¿Se sienta estúpida?

Benghazi Stuff

Reuters: Senate panel says attack on U.S. post in Benghazi was preventable.

In the world of spookery, a diplomat never ever ever ever visits a safehouse. Bad!
