   Calvinesq  Flag Day today! Somewhat overlooked between Memorial Day and the 4th, I believe. I put U.S. flags out this morning. It's a Grand Old Flag!

Hurricanes are a different story, though. Don't get me started.

   Kono  Surely not all 9 levels, Phooey. The level where it snows must be reserved for midwesterners and yankees who haven't moved to Florida, yet.

   MeiDei  Watched those marchers in Britain calling for Robinson's freedom, odd news to me. Found a background article on it, written by a Brit for National Review. Most imformative + a warning for us.

   Richdet  One is not hearing about the Tommy Robinson case in the MSM. The dog that isn't barking. Why is that? You would think the American media would take interest, especially since the media overseas has been ordered by the court not to speak his name.

One has to conclude that the US media is just fine with taking opponents of Islam and rape gangs as political prisoners. The possibility that this could be a death sentence for Robinson (retaliation by Muslims in jail ) seems okay too, maybe the desired outcome. Certainly a warning for Americans because this is exactly the treatment of government opponents the Left would endorse, once they get that pesky confiscation of weapons out of the way.

I would recommend Mark Steyn's discussion of Robinson:

   MeiDei  I saw a video on some website of the marchers shouting something like "free Tommy" - it was a huge scene from an overhead view - similar to what you'd see for a special royal parade; it certainly got my attention. The print media is very selective in the stories it deems of interest & therefore controls the conversation.
Funny that you should also mention Katie Hopkins - a while back a 40-something sent me a video of her in action, I posted it on the Politics wall here, still current on the page. She's a firebrand, well spoken. I missed her on Tucker's program, so thanks for the link.

   MeiDei  Gram, I would very much appreciate the recount of Indian lore. I hope you have the time to retype it. I just remember two sayings attributed to our southeast coast Indians.
1 ) Never judge a man until you have walked two full moons in his moccasins.
2 ) Never pitch your tent within 3 miles of the ocean. English translation of course. But you refer to something more lengthy -
as a legend & I'm, again, most interested.

   Phooey  Perhaps this MeiDei:

The LoneRanger & Tonto are riding down into a box canyon. At the far end, the LoneRanger notices an army of Comanche Indians, in full war-paint, frowning down from the cliff walls at him.
Turning to his left he notices a great number of very mad looking Arapaho Indians staring down.
On his right he observes a host of Cherokee Indians peering at him over the rim of the canyon.
Looking behind, he sees every Apache brave in the world slowly creeping into the canyon, blocking the exit.
The LoneRanger turns to Tonto and says, "We're in a heap of trouble, Tonto!"
Tonto's nervous reply, "Uhh...who do you mean we, pale-face?"

   4Justice  Hey folks! It's embarrassing to ask, but does anyone have or know of some private property in the Bay Area (or outlying areas ) in California where I and my husband can rent a space for our 5th wheel trailer to live in? It can just be temporary or long term.

Its a long story, but here are some of the facts...Right after I got laid off my job, my husband [actually we are just good (completely platonic ) friends, but we take care of each other as partners in life] came down with stage 4 prostate cancer that mestasticized and spread into his blood and bones. We only found out about it after he fell and badly fractured his back. That was 17 months ago. Since then, I have been taking care of him 24/7 as he needs full-time help. Anyway, since we only have his Social Security right now (I have been waiting 2 years to find out if I will get disability (if not, I'll find a way to work again ), we are on a fixed income so we have been living in a 5th wheel trailer renting space on private property. At first, it was only supposed to be a temporary arrangement to save money, but everything changed after he got sick and I became more disabled after losing most of the use of my left arm and hand from neck damage.

Recently, without our knowledge, the property went into foreclosure and was sold so we have to move ASAP. I had been looking for a place because I wanted to stay in Santa Clara County for his medical care, but was told by my landlord that his brother would gladly rent to us on his place in Stanislaus County if we wanted. So, I thought we had a sure thing if need be. I kept it as a back up plan. Well, I had no luck here, so we made arrangements to look at the place near Patterson a week and a half ago. Then, suddenly the brother stopped communicating with us at the last minute. He won't answer our calls nor return them. We deduced he changed his mind at the last minute. So now we are in a terrible bind.

When we bought the trailer, we were both healthy and I was working full-time. My husband was working part-time. Since we put it on private property, I didn't bother to reinstate the registration because I was told it just had to be signed off by the sheriff after repair (had a damaged roof that the last owner fixed ). What is I didn't do was due diligence. It was deemed non-repairable ( which I stupidly did not realize was not like a salvage title ). In California, it can never be registered again, even though it really is repaired. So, I cannot register it, and therefore, I cannot take it to a regular RV park. Every one requires current registration and insurance to stay

   4Justice  CONTINUED...Anyway, we likely cannot move into an apartment for several reasons--mainly because we don't have the move-in money, we have old medical credit problems (don't worry, we always paid our rent on time, sometimes early, every time for the last 4 years and our landlord will attest to it ), and our three cats. So, if you have any ideas or can help in any way--even if it is simply prayers, it would be greatly appreciated. Just to let you know, he won't go to a hospice. It would kill him and he won't leave his cats. Thank you for reading this and God bless You!

   StormCnter  4Justice, all I can offer is prayer and the faith that God watches over you.
We lived in California many years ago for a short period and the state's registration laws even back then were weird. If someone's trailer has been modified or even built from scratch and can be registered, I don't understand how yours cannot.

   Escaped commieny  J, do you still have my email ? I have 3 for you. You mentioned that Kevin (RIP ) lived close and he once was a chaperone for Timberqueen, when TimberKing was working, so do you have her email or what about Belwhatter, they are all on your coast, I'm, in FL There are a lot of CA posters on MOTUS that may be able to help.
(See Blogs Luci Loves ) That is where I spend most of my posting time using Disgus, that I call Disgust. I wish we were still in the Family Motor Coach Assoc. they would have contacts, but once in Fl we let the coach go. L

   Timber Queen  Although we have the land, its not in the right area. We have 40 acres, but we're in the middle of Mendocino County's coastal mountain range. We are 3 hours north (160 miles ) of SF, and four miles of gravel/dirt road from the highway. Its remoteness and inaccessibility was the reason for purchase. Without a registration you can't tow the trailer, you would have to have it hauled by a flat bed tow. I'm sorry I know no one in the Bay Area. Prayers for you.

   Belwhatter  I am sorry to hear of your situation 4Justice and that I cannot offer any solution from up here in the NW corner, other than to empathasize that friends in Brentwood, CA have hit similar accomodation problems due to an enforced early retirement, and seem to depend on house sitting for their friends or on family members. The market has left them behind. Illness brings its own extra problems. Prayer is the one resource we all have, in this case let it be prayer for a practical solution, access to property and health care.

   4Justice  Thank you everybody for your responses. L, I lost your email but mine is viewable in my profile now. I also use Disqus on various sites (still using JanineC there ). I'll check out that site.

And yes, prayers are DEFINITELY GREATLY appreciated!!

TQ, lol....I couldn't imagine a big 5th wheel in that situation. : ). Again, thank you for responding.

One good thing...it may or may not work out but I did get one call today in response to my Craigslist post. I am praying it does since it isn't too far from San Jose and sounds like a great set up.
