Looks as if I can't keep my promise not to use Trump's name here. Maybe I could call him Hurricane Donald. But that almost sounds friendly.
The latest wheeze about flag burning: burned any flags lately? That's chum for the base. They can reminisce about the good old days and hope that wild eyed Commies, hippies and other traitors will take the hint and start burning flags so they can get all symbolically indignant. They will be having so much fun with that that they won't notice when Trump takes away their Medicare and Social Security.
My orchids are doing well. These are not good photos, but the colors are nice. The yellow and orange cattleya is 18 years old, and it is thriving in a pot I made. I do like the contrast between the funky pot, roots and leaves and the beautiful orchid flowers. I feel sorry for the cleaned up plants I see in hotel lobbies and restaurants.
Got to do some housekeeping before the authorities get after me.
