+cobalt please Sometimes we forget to express the appreciation and admiration we have for others and their actions.
I wanted to express it when I thought it, so as to let you know that it has been very nice to be able to follow along with your son's journey to Philly.
Your friends got a unique and special look into the occasion. I thought we should acknowledge that.

Want to see one of the reasons we know media control is the most important player in US politics?

Sadly, this has been the case since the 1970s at least. Perhaps millennials will be better at remembering, or at least paying attention, than boomers.

Another Fine Mess
Concertina wire of a few generations seen along Grand Avenue in Phoenix, Arizona.

As is usual in my stream, visitors will find an eclectic mix of topics and tone. Consider my stream as an old skool magazine or newspaper, where one visits regularly to see what's going on, and has certain sections more favorite to read than others. I do not often post images without a specific reason in my mind, THIS image is one example. ("read between the lines", eh?) Yes, the dreadful DNC convention politics has really left me saddened. Some people just hate to see anything, ever, in a stream that involves politics. I tend to post 1/10 of my shared public content on American politics. Yet I often keep many of those posts shared with certain circles and Communities, so they may not be noticed.

I only ask others to consider what I do and recommend: if you do not like some of my posts, then just move along. Always invite folks to know me, the real person and the whole person, not judge me on just a certain aspect of me. This is what I do with other friends and contacts, who I faithfully follow even though their own posts can be offensive to me. Those posts I ignore and move along, without getting upset at them, the real person. Hopefully those who appreciate what I share of my life are of a similar frame of mind and heart!

+David Mathre Yes, you never know when you find very tiny bits of beauty to our eyes, what the reality has been of this place for others. Good point.

Johnson is good. He kicked ass as NM guv. Dems/SantaFe Ring never had a surplus, and neither has the current "GOP" latina. He did. Stein or Johnson for me and Johnson has a clearer path. so sez a green libertarian guy, fwiw.

Cold Bean Salad
PERFECT for hot summer days in Arizona! I got the idea from +Yvi San when I saw her pretty photo of what she made the other day. Mine is not so pretty but boy oh boy is it tremendous! Beats the heck out of most cold salad side dishes we usually see. I followed her notes of what to include and only missed out on adding radish. I used two tomatoes, two cucumber, a can of garbanzo and a can of black beans (rinsed), as well as green pepper, and red onion. I had Zesty Italian dressing on hand, so that was the marinade. Completely forgot to add the shredded cheese, yet this was a great hit with my family. We will be doing this same recipe often.

To follow up on Yvi and see her posts and really fun bird photos, check these links:

Sane Progressive with John
Debbie Lusignan (who is the Sane Progressive) with my son John at a protest of the DNC convention in Philadelphia today. I don't know why she uses a different name in Google+ but you may recognize her in this photo. Took a lot of editing to get a shareable image - they were very very dark because the sky was so bright. If you are interested, here is her youtube.com link:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxpfmCp2Z9VPTO7eWV6ebzQ

BTW, just got another photo selfie of John, alone, since it is raining he is attired in a fashionable trash bag, ha ha! Sharing this photo in a few... +Krinny J he just told me he's likely to be out all night long, rain or no! He is having the trip of a lifetime here. Going to upload a couple pix from just now, no editing.

+Krinny J indeed! I hope this gets out as a story around the US. I get tired of protests being portrayed as especially dangerous and thus we are the "dirty hippies" if we march to different drummers.
