“The evolution of the brain not only overshot the needs of prehistoric man, it is the only example of evolution providing a species with an organ which it does not know how to use.” ~ Arthur Koestler
we're trying, at least we sorta know what happened to the dinosaurs...

how many million years were they around for? longer than the cockroach or ants or bees? i can't really remember. :) :) :)

we're only around here for a few hundred thousand years, so far, give or take a few million depending upon who you talk to...

Disappointing week, past. How many March weeks have we now had? 2020

The rain "suggested," was a " washout." Oh, there is a poor choice of words. Tuesday's rain was cancelled. Saturday's rain was several drops on the pickup in the driveway - just enough to leave some marks in the ash from the wildfires.

Wild, since they have repeatedly burned into residential areas, does that make them more wild or more domestic?

The new US Forest Service chief said early that some fires should just burn themselves out. Sure. Maybe it it doesn't require evacuating a town of 17,000 people, allowing them to camp in their cars on asphalt parking lots in 100° temperatures because there are fires along all highways leading out of the county. Helicopter out? Sure.

"In April U.S. Forest Service chief Vicki Christiansen ordered a new strategy for fighting wildfires in response to the spread of the novel coronavirus. That strategy included a renewed focus on using local firefighting crews and a strategy of rapid containment ... " UPI

🥴 Works just super ... except that the USFS and the locals are trying to contain fires in weather of record heat and drought while containing a virus outbreak that has killed 200,000 and sickened millions. An entire management team was pulled off one fire recently because one of them was sick and the others require weeks in quarantine. While fires spread by the minute ... Acres of every kind of environment by the tens of thousands ...

We read that Congress was unwilling to act during the Dust Bowl of the Great Depression until dust clouds blew into Washington DC. The city recently had clouds of smoke from western fires blow in ... But, they weren't around for long before the remains of a Gulf Coast hurricane showed up to carry them out into the Atlantic -- fortunately for leadership.

It will take $900 billion in annual spending cuts or tax increases for 25 years to restore the nation’s debt to pre-COVID-19 levels.

Last week just took it out of me. The promise of rain and nothing but a few drops and the smoke. I thought my green beans would be dead and they survived several days of no watering. I was not going to go out there in that smoke. When I finally went out and found green beans I felt guilty, and hurried and watered. Yesterday and today lots of nice rain. I am cold in the house and cleaned the woodstove out and feels like I blinked and it is March 2020.
