Walls have always a part of the heat wave warm, but it's managable now with opened windows mornings and evenings. No more wake up with sweat and all possible disagements coming with
:tearlaugh:

What worries me the most for next days stays the drought. I know people (and after a while me too) don't like when it's raining, but we need rain sooner. And if possible regular rain until the end of Summer to catch the missing amount.

Ray, temperatures aren't better after your storm? :panic:

O. M. G.
I cannot believe where things have gone with P.C. and all that. Twice now, I've read about some diva posing on a magazine in a themed set where she's dressed in clothing that is not culturally hers. Some people that's not her 'people' and they even have a name for it:
Cultural Appropriation. Didn't that used to be called using a 'themed look' for a photo layout? Let's do an oriental theme. No, lets do an American School Girl theme! Well, I think we should do a Neolithic theme! WHAT?.... 'Temporal Appropriations' then? What about Alien themes? Like you know, out in Space?

I don't care about the divas - it's whatever with them. But I see it as affecting ART itself. Maybe even what we do if someone wants to be a special snowflake about any of it. It's nuts. God forbid! Don't put "Maman Bridget" outfit and dreds on a white girl! (Not that there aren't some actual white mambos.)

What are your considered thoughts about stuff like this?

Oh yes, they were much better after the storm - very pleasant, actually. Sure did get everything wet though! That's a good thing.

I'm glad your mornings and evenings are cooling down. That's some relief for you.

I've been thinking about that drought issue. All of EU is going to be affected by that and not in a good way. You all definitely need some rain on the Continent there. I bet Sir Knight and Dan would send you some of theirs :ifonly: they could.

If you go to YT to view the song, there is a write up about it and the lyrics beneath in the SHOW MORE section.
Beautiful song. I didn’t know that the tree first came to Cuba

It is a lovely song. I never knew who or what Poinciana was in the song. I thought you'd like it :smiley:

Call me dumb but what is PC? People’s Choice magazine? If yes then I don’t have a clue. I don’t read magazine unless special edition and on something I really like. I do read the covers when I pass by them but that’s how far it goes, lol. I saw something on a cover about the royals and something to do with Megan’ outfit, is this what it’s about? If yes, oh for heaven’s sake let everyone live the way they want to that includes their fashion taste. If it wasn’t about this , oops 😬!!

Politically Correct, hon. I don't read those magazines either. This is in the news feeds.

It's about black people wearing oriental stuff.

Oh forgot to say good morning! Hope everything is good with all. I read some of the posts here about whales, sharks, storms, etc..... I will try to catch up later tonight. I’m using my cell at moment and it’s no fun, lol
By the way iolana asked me to paint for her phantom of the opera mask for her.... and this was my attempt last night..... yeah she likes it and the flower but says it’s not a rose..... oh well it is to me 😝
Be back later tonight (if not too tired) going to a bbq in a city(Park)..

I hope they will. But depending of conditions in Europe, maybe the weather will take a turn toward Ireland and Scotland. I know at some seasons (mainly Winter and Spring) the bad weather coming from North America goes toward Scotland. And now if the Azores anticyclone doesn't behave, it's the risk the weather does that.

Politically Correct is a form of Cultural Socialism or just plain Communism.  It is design to control speech and dumb down the population. It restrict freedom of expression and thought.  It is used in conjunction with other things to slowly take over a population or state.
