Mr. Older Tree in the Summertime
Pic from ~ hermann-uwe.de ~
Oh, Kittens... another storm rolled through on the tame prairie... not too bad and mostly just a nice rain... but yowls, it meant the Kougar had to computer-disconnect and she was merrily working on her edits for Branded. Yep, still making good progress... *knock on wood” again.
Moi did get a nice nap and when she awoke, the sunset shimmered both with blazing colors and luminous pastel washes of color... quite the splendid panorama. Recently, the Kougaress has noticed how handsome the older tree outside her favorite window is this summer... when she first moved here, Mr. Older Tree looked okay, but a bit scraggly. Now, over several years, he’s grown much taller, spread his limbs and now he’s a handsome ole devil. The birds and squirrels love him. And so does moi.
Here’s a fun contest at ~ renamebp.com ~ for the eco-minded among us ~
IIEA has introduced the new ReName BP contest to allow the world to express its outrage and horror over BP’s total disregard for public safety, the government of the United States, and the environment.
IIEA invites everyone who cares to enter a submission (making them eligible to win one of our Fabulous Eco-Prizes) and to permanently brand one of the Earth’s most prominent polluters.
As David Blume put it, “The Gulf cataclysm is a Bitter Pill to swallow. Especially after the Bodacious Prevaricators told our government that Blowout Possibilities were too small to require Burdensome Permits, or Blowout Preventers that work.”

Whether it's your first interview or your tenth, do they really get any easier? I've only been on one side of the fence and I found it nerve racking.

Does Coffee Help Your Sex Life?
By Kayelle Allen
How good is caffeine for your sex life? Do you dally over a last cup with your lover, sipping, casting loving glances over the top of the cup? Do you find the flavor on your lover's tongue is exotic? Erotic? Or if you're not a coffee drinker, does it taste bitter?
One more reason why our beloved world feels *Ominously Wrong* right now.
Did you know that the people in Brazil now run most of their cars and other vehicles on alcohol. They don’t need no effing gasoline.
This Big Cat would love to have her own working still, so she could make her own moonshine to run her van on, and all sorts of machines that now use gas. Screw and hellaciously scratch BIG OIL!!!
Now ~ FIRST! just for the big cool cats ~ from the Flash Cat...
Happy Courtship on another Earth
X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...
Sylva peered at her way-too-handsome husband. “The Matrix,” he murmured, obviously deep in thought. “Darlin’, are you talkin’ about human bodies being used for energy and the folks are kept in a dreaming state?” Sylva stroked her Zeke’s arm just to feel him and to know his strength. “It sounds like the same or a similar plot. But, the point is, they believe the programmed dreams they’re having as if it’s actually reality.” Her cowboy gave a nod. “Mind control can be done in many ways. There are any number of techniques and technologies.” Sylva felt her shoulders sag. “MK-ULTRA...”
Zeke started violently inside, but did his best not to let it show. No use frightening his beloved Sylva. Immediately, her gaze questioned him, though. “Don’t tell me there’s a, or was an MK-ULTRA here?” Zeke nodded in answer, and wondered how to explain what had occurred in their history. He paused a short moment. “There was a nefarious mind control program that was shut down about thirty years ago.” Heaving in a large breath, he continued, “The odd-duck thang was that some of those psycho-sidewinders claimed they’d traveled through time, and ended up here rather than on their Earth.”
