Couple of pics. The wee coin/key dish was made by my daughter (mostly her anyway) for her teachers last day. Hers is also the double yolk egg. She keeps getting double yolkers. Lucky child!

Well said.
Ted Ewen originally shared to Hermit House: Politics:
 
Taxes are not a bad thing. used well. I live in Denmark, one of the most highly taxed nations on the planet. We pay 38% income tax and 24% VAT on many items. Know what?

I have far more disposable income. A public transport system that works. Medical care free. Subsidised education for life. My mortgage, travel, and other expenses are offset against taxes. We have a beautiful road network, and an equally beautiful and comprehensive bicycle and foot path system.  We make a large part of our electricity via renewable systems and are going for 100%.  

We have a social safety net that ensures everyone eats, everyone has a place to sleep. You have to work really hard to be down and out here.   Innovation is rampant. Almost everyone has a small business. Libraries are well stocked and everywhere. There are citizen music,arts, and science programs. There is more, but you get the idea.

I am more than happy to pay that level of tax. More than happy.
Why? Because I see that the money is being used well. Something I never felt in the US. 50% on military spending? No.

This heavily taxed nation of @6 million people is ranked 21st in the world based on GDP per capita. The US is 10th with 60 times the people and 223 times the land.

Finally, Denmark is always in the top 10 (usually the top 5) of the Best/Happiest places to live.  Satisfaction in Denmark rides around the 75-85% level.

As an American, I grow weary of the greedy and the selfish, the ignorant and the apathetic, telling us that it can not be done in the good old USA. Nonsense.

Social Democracy works.

Global warming is real, and caused by the release of human generated greenhouse gas pollution. We can measure the greenhouse gas concentrations (mainly CO2) and we can measure surface warming and upper ocean warming. But global warming should have a number of additional fingerprints, predicted by modeling or other aspects of climate science, and identifying…

I missed yesterdays diary entry. Don't think for yourself in case the think police come for you!
 
The Dear Leader's Diary - 12
Now that my government is all powerful, and will do whatever we want, forever, I am an even more Dear Leader than Kim Jong Un, and have asked my web team to produce a suitably powerful new header for this Diary. You are instructed to like it at once, or the...

Not the best of pictures (it was raining on the phone). The sky looked amazing though. We've had sunsets like this for the past few nights.

Our guinea pigs. Thought I'd film them. They can get very noisy when they want their greens!

Found this on one of my communities. A bike that folds down to the size of an umbrella. The wheels are hubless, so they can fit into a backpack. Seems like a great idea, especially for those living in small spaces. It is in prototype stage at the minute. Hopefully it gets funded.

Co2 Emissions/Climate Change  - 
 
Interesting piece. More proof (if it were needed) of climate change.
