He had a rapper with an offensive album cover at the white house. The thesis proves itself.

Yup. Obama was totally out of control.

It's great to have restored proper decorum to the White House.

You have to go WAY back for the last time that happened. But I endorse

Do you have a problem with ducks in your pool? Any tips on discouraging them?

Ducks are annoying as hell. We'll see soon enough if Taggart is any good.

> Golden retriever
 
This is a neighborhood pool, not a backyard pool, so it isn't practical to keep a dog there all the time. One of the neighbors does send her dog over when she sees the ducks, but overnight they get comfortable again.

We have a pond, so the critters prefer it.
 
Maybe some of those plastic owls? Throw a rubber snake in the pool?
 
Holly Springs have placed plastic buzzards hanging upside down on the light towers at the North Main Athletic Complex to keep the local buzzards from roosting there. I'm not sure if it's working or not.
 
I think plastic owls would be the best bet.

That's what the Germans are doing. They screwed the pooch by 1) spending huge amounts
on inefficient solar and 2) ill-conceived abandonment of nuclear power. So, they have one
thing left they can do, considering natural gas puts them in thrall to the Russians -- coal.
 
As a result, they have some of the world's most expensive electricity and their emissions
are rising, not falling. Oops.

How new? Is anyone building these new plants? Would like to see them proved out in operation. I remember a few years ago reading about some interesting nuke concepts, like plants that use much less radioactive pebbles that could be done on a small scale (hi to Ken and his decentralized grid).
 
I have flying club pla who's a nuclear engineer... manages fueling and refueling of plants. Eventually he bought his own plane. He bought about the most complex, difficult to manage plane you can get and still be a single engine. Tightly cowled turbocharged engine with very demanding thermal management requirements. All kinds of dials and gauges that have to paid close attention to, you can crack the engine block real quick if you screw it up, but it rewards you with amazing capability. I joked that it was the perfect airplane for a nuclear engineer.

But market.... rural land is cheap...That's a pretty minor concern IMO.

I lost some FB friends when a pla posted a meme congratulating Germany on shutting down their nukes and he asked how did they do it? He didnt like my one-word answer, which of course was "coal"

In the past 30 years. No, sad to say -- nothing going on in the U.S. I don't
know the worldwide state.

There are lots of things that could happen if there wasn't so much insane
opposition. Sad to say, the greens have much more voice than is rational.

I know quite a few nukes, and know a little bit about nuclear plants
due to my submarine service. It needs to be treated with respect, to be
sure, but the safety margins are usually quite good.

Not in my book. Wind and solar are a blight that kill birds and destroy
scenery.

If they would unfriend me for such a thing, I don't want them. :)
 
I think some of this unfriending thing is just that they are too
dumb to know you can unfollow someone without unfriending them.

Dictionaries recognize 2 definitions...
1. a female of certain species (dog, wolf, fox, or otter)
2. a derogatory slang term for human females (including lesbians and
liberals).
