Trump’s support of racism leads to death near my home…

The rhetoric of hate and Nationalism. It is real. There was a mass shooting yesterday at a synagogue near where I live in San Diego in Southern California. I have been to that building. I have been in that building. … Continue reading

Try to guess which of these are human food and which are pet food… yes… I know I said I wasn’t going to do anymore silly guessing games with the digital microscope I got for Christmas, but you don’t have to guess what kinds of food they are… just what kind of mammal eats them…

Colors in the dark… part 3… but maybe I should have called these: ‘lights in the darkness’…

Is that an alien planet in a starless solar system? No, that wouldn’t be possible. A ‘solar’ system, by definition, has at least one star in it. Is that the ghost of Donald tRump’s brain? No, that wouldn’t be possible. … Continue reading
