Sunday flowers just because...

Mom's pink rose bush is blooming. This will brighten up my cubicle. Yellow roses still to come.

The ants have done their job and opened all the lovely peony buds into flowers. This is gracing the kitchen table.

Happy Sunday y'all!

Message from President Obama:

(I don't often get political on here but I liked this simple, non-dramatic statement of what, for me, is truth:)

"In a few months, I'll be heading into the voting booth to cast my vote for the next President of the United States. And, like so many of you, I've spent this primary observing the candidates and the parties, and what they represent.

And I have to say, this has been a difficult period for the Republicans. They're trying to figure out what they're standing for -- whether they will be the party of building walls and surveilling neighborhoods, whether they will be the party that enshrines discrimination in our laws.

But the good news for Democrats is that we know what we believe. We believe that climate change is real and that we must do something about it. We believe in raising the minimum wage, and that women should be paid the same as men for doing the same job. We believe that our laws should reflect our heritage as a nation of immigrants. We believe that all people should be treated with dignity and respect, no matter their race or religion, gender or sexual orientation."

(Not sure I agree with the following part of the quote.)

"We have two fine Democratic candidates who, no matter their differences, share this same set of core beliefs that defines our party. And in November, we're going to make sure that one of them becomes our next president."

(I will proudly vote for Sanders. I will vote for Hillary over any other candidates if Sanders doesn't get the nomination. But if I vote for Hillary, I will be back to choosing the lesser of 2 evils. And voting for Hillary will make me sad because I really want a female president, but I want one I can be proud of, and, for me, that's not Hillary. I can not vote for a Republican until they make it clear, they understand what rape is and what it's consequences are. There have been too many statements from republican politicians that indicate they don't.)

Goodbye Prince

I will always remember dancing to Raspberry Beret and Little Red Corvette and dancing to Erotic City when you sang - "we can funk until the dawn making love till cherry's gone" and my friend Tina stopped in the middle of the dance floor and yelled very loudly - did he just say what I think he said?

RIP Prince.
