Those sources stress no deal has been reached but do say the potential deal could be reached as early as today.

Gotta Have Flair -- Fort Collins, Colorado
"Personality is essential. It is in every work of art. When someone walks on stage for a performance and has charisma, everyone is convinced that he has personality."
-- Lukas Foss

This fancy fellow is a Dogwood Clearwing Borer Moth. I found him sipping nectar from one of the yarrow plants in my backyard a couple of weeks ago. It actually looks like he has tail feathers.

UPDATE: Thanks to +Seth Burgess for the identification!

From the Missouri Botanical Garden website:

"The dogwood borer, Synanthedon scitula, one of about seven borers that attack dogwoods, is the most serious. It also attacks flowering cherry, chestnut, apple, mountain-ash, hickory, pecan, willow, birch, bayberry, oak, hazel, myrtle, and loquat. Wounded trees are the most vulnerable since the larvae must gain access to the tree through wounds or scars. The adult is a clear wing moth which looks like a wasp."

Amazing sunrise over Mount Bromo

I stand at sunrise on the rim of an ancient volcano, gazing over it's caldera to a series of 4 smaller active volcanoes within it's interior. A truly impressive site!

This entire scene looks like it's been computer generated for some sci-fi movie. But, it's real and it's absolutely stunning.

The active volcano you can see on the left, actually erupted only three weeks prior to me taking this photograph and was in high alert status, ready for another eruption. Naturally we had to climb up to it's rim and look down into it's caldera :-P Up close, it was raining ash and we got absolutely covered in it.

Ah, the worm is turning when ultra conservatives speak out!
“ …Peters, a retired US Army lieutenant colonel, was a Fox military analyst until March, when he resigned and burned the proverbial bridge. In a letter to his colleagues, he accused Fox of “assaulting our constitutional order and the rule of law.” … "People that only listen to Fox have an utterly skewed view of reality," he said. He described the relationship between the president and his favored news network as a “closed loop,” but that was hardly Peters' most strident critique of his former employer.
Fox isn't immoral, it's amoral,” he said. Later in the interview, when Reliable Sources aired clips that show Fox News hosts defending Trump's decision to strip former CIA director John Brennan's security clearance, Peters was asked if he thought his colleagues at Fox are "proud of their performance."
The polite word is 'prostitutes,’ so I'll just leave it at that," Peters fired back.
Peters garnered attention on Sunday for his stunning denunciation of Trump.
Trump gives us something new to worry about virtually every day, but it's important not to lose sight of the overall picture," Peters said. “This is a distinctly un-American president who really doesn't seem to like America very much, certainly doesn't respect it. And he's a president who appears to be enthralled to a foreign power, a hostile foreign power.
That foreign power is Russia. Peters, who was a Russia analyst earlier in his career, has previously said he believes that Vladimir Putin "has a grip on President Trump."
On "Reliable Sources," he said he was speaking out because he believes Trump and his aides are a "real threat to our republic.”
"What we need is people who will speak honestly and say what they believe and not worry about who it offends," Peters said. "I'm just sick and tired of people hedging and hemming and hawing. This is a president of the United States who is a danger to the republic.
Peters was harshly critical of former President Barack Obama during his tenure at Fox.
He once called Obama a "total p**y" on the air -- and was suspended for two weeks.
But his criticism of Trump is different. He said on Sunday that *Trump "does not respect our system of government," does not understand it, and does not respect the Constitution.
Peters resigned from Fox back in March. He wrote in a note to a handful of colleagues at the time saying he "long was proud" of his association with Fox, but now he's “ashamed," calling it a "propaganda machine" for the president. …”
