A good SCOTUS to Retire: David Souter

David Souter, one of the GHWB's picks, who is ready to retire. Here's the link to the story:

I would have thought Justice Stevens first. Well, POTUS, be wise and seek Souter's counsel on good ones to promote.

President Obama's First 100 days

I will write more about this subject later as to what my first impressions are. But I wanted to post this picture first:

It's so refreshing to see photos of our POTUS and FLOTUS being comfortable with hugging in front of the staff (including the photographer). That's normal family life.

Update: on the first day of the second 100, Obama did something I appreciated: he mocked Faux News.

Rainy Days and Mondays Don't Always Get Me Down

But, I keep getting these e-mails from floral companies about sending flowers on Mother's Day. I don't have a momma anymore.

If I weren't going to be away that day, I would be tempted to do some community work. But alas, I'm out of town that day. And I still think it will be a challenging day for me.

BW readers, I'd be interested in any ideas on how to celebrate Mother's Day gracefully the first year or two when you don't have your mother to talk to anymore.

Monday Levity

This is a clip of a video I've heard about for a year, but never found it. Today, one of my FB friends posted it. If you are a cat owner, you will automatically get the jokes. If you are a dog owner, you will appreciate the dead pan humor.

Enjoy. It's "An Engineer's Guide to Cats."
