So Jane Fonda has been making the news for being arrested for protesting for climate change. I have to wonder the size of her footprint jetting/driving about protesting. I've no idea really but it seems hers is probably bigger than mine.

Jane Fonda has been around long enough to witness the effects of humans on climate change. She's also been around long enough to experience the effects of surgeons on face change.

She's had a couple of hips replaced. She just keeps plugging along. Love her in Grace and Frankie.

At 10:30 this a.m. it's 97F.

And I always thought F stood for Fahrenheit but now I know better

At least we have this to look forward to at 6 p.m. after all the dagbesoekers have left....

Why do the media always call it a "space walk"? They're obviously not walking; they're floating.

It can't be "space floating" because that's what they do all day. This is perhaps "going for a float outside"

Why do people send 'praying hands' emojis on WhatsApp? Am I supposed to believe the cartoon hands are actually prayers? Or am I to be amazed at people's care for someone else? What's the point?

Same as thoughts and prayers from Congress & WH after school/mass shootings?

Perhaps but those are pols and we expect grandstanding. I'm thinking more of closed WhatsApp groups where we all know each other. I won't post praying hands on such groups and I won't say "Happy Birthday" either.

I send the birthday greeting direct to the person's cell; keeping it private. (Mind, I'm glad for the first one to WhatsApp the "HB" because otherwise I probably wouldn't know there was one!

Am I grandstanding now by telling anyone that I'm so righteous? And modest? And meanly suspicious of my friend's motives?
