Today’s spam

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPhone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

You’ve shared it. Now let’s move on.

P.S.: My cousins are more mature.

Prickly Pears: to eat or not to eat?

The wild prickly pear cactus has sharp spines, so you wear garden gloves. But, it’s no fault of this plant that the spines break off on touch. My gloves didn’t even help. The spines pierced the thick gloves and embedded themselves in my skin.

So much for wanting to eat the fruit fresh from the front yard. It’s free for the taking.

Peccaries (javelinas) thrive on the fruit. It has nutrition but especially water. Water is hard to find in the desert homes of peccaries.

As for myself, I have plenty of drinking water and vitamin C. I can pick fresh oranges for the same value. Orange trees do have thorns to deter predators like me, but they don’t break off.

So, am I likely to pick some more prickly pears? Yes, but not tomorrow.

Once shy, twice stupid.

Immigrants are witnesses in Trump impeachment hearings

Three immigrants have testified before the U.S. Congressional joint impeachment inquiry concerning alleged misdeeds by President Donald Trump.

Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch was the first to appear to testify. She was born in Canada. Her parents brought her to the U.S. when she was three years old. She has since become an American citizen.

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman appeared to testify. He was born in the former Soviet Union. His father brought him to the U.S. when he was also three years old. He has since become an American citizen.

Dr. Fiona Hill testified. She came to the U.S. as an adult and has since become an American citizen. She was born in England.

No wonder why President Trump dislikes immigrants.

However, a wall along the southern border with Mexico would not have kept them out.

3 Storms, 2 cataclysms, 1 day

The one day was September 23, 2019 – 23 Elul on the Hebrew calendar.

It stormed in Phoenix, Arizona, three times on that Monday. Between 6 and 9 AM torrents of rain fell, filling the washes (arroyos) with heavy flows of white water. Some streets were flooded with a couple of inches of rain, as I found out when I drove to the bank and to Walgreens.

In early afternoon it rained heavily again. And finally, the last rain of the season (as has since become apparent) began towards sunset.

23 Elul is a memorable day in U.S. history. An official investigation to impeach President Donald Trump began in the House of Representatives in 2019. Before 23 Elul the hearings were not official.

The earlier cataclysm is known as “9/11.” On that day in 2001, two planes crashed into the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers in New York City and brought them down. The Hebrew date was also 23 Elul.

You might say that Donald Trump’s presidency crashed and began to burn that same day.

23 Elul is also exactly one week before the Jewish holy day of Rosh Hashanah, the New Year.

Coincidences don’t happen, although I can’t connect local rain storms with world shaking events. The only fact here is that these things happened on the same day according to the Hebrew calendar.
