Ukraine Doings

So…

The bloodless annexation of Crimea by Russia after an overwhelmingly favorable plebiscite by the Crimeans themselves was illegal.

But..

Our overthrow of the legitimately elected government of the Ukraine, AKA “Regime Change” (as revealed by Victoria Nuland’s “Yats is the one” public phone call) was a legitimate humanitarian endeavor.

"My Country Tis of Thee"

A couple of days before the recent presidential election I was outside doing chores.

My granddaughter Bella whom I had just picked up from school was playing on a swing nearby. A happy child, she was always singing some pop tune during play, but on this day I heard her singing “My Country Tis of Thee.”

Made me smile, and then I remembered this picture her father had taken of her a few years ago which, to me, was so impactful and impressionable.

Undiscovered Gem - Rhododendron State Park

Just across the river, there’s a beautiful park filled with gorgeous flowers.

Rhododendron State Park in Fitzwilliam is a natural stand of Rhododendrons that are in bloom right now.

The park is named after the 16-acre grove of Rhododendron Maximum, which is the focal point of the park. A 0.6 mile-long trail encircles the grove allowing visitors to observe, close up, the fragrant clusters of pink blossoms as they burst into bloom in mid-July.

Other trails, including a special wildflower trail wind through the forest adjacent to the grove.
