    She obviously masters many different accents. Apart from her "native" North American English, I've heard her speak Oxford English, Cockney and Irish.

    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    In case you haven't seen it yet, one of my favourite Husky videos of all time. They really are the funniest dogs out there, especially with the way they talk tack back to you like a petulant child...

    In truth, after a considerable amount of gaslighting, one has a choice...keep fighting or disengage. I think the natural inclination is to disengage when one can look around and see so many just not 'believe' what is happening.

    As a wise blue collar friend once said to me: "People are like dogs, some you can beat into submission and others just get meaner!"

    I don't want the light of enlightenment to go out. And I would never beat a dog or a person, although I get your metaphor and it is a good one.

    Can we get some metaphorical rabies shots?

    And, of course, the cure against the coronavirus.




    Sadly enough, this cure will not be available to US Americans due to Emperor Donaldo's wall at the border between the USA and Mexico.
