OK, so it's been a morning. Dogsitting today, and then ran into a neighbor after that -- and now here it is, 9 am.

I have barely had a moment to check the news, which I suspect, is a good thing. Next week I will be back with a proper blog, for my right proper friends. Right now I Am counting down to the weekend.

and

Raine

Mornin' all!

It's crunch time. I have a feeling I'll be baking stuff late into the night.

So Iran shot down a U.S. drone that they said violated their airspace. The U.S. says it was in international airspace.

This is getting dangerous.

All this shit Biden is getting for attempting to work with his colleagues in the Senate over several decades is really getting me annoyed.

Let's get this straight. Yes, there were segregationists in the Senate in the past. Yes, he worked with them, because that was the job he was elected by the people of Delaware to do. That's what it means to be a Senator - working with people you definitely don't agree with, even if you have to team up with people who believe some really disgusting things, in order to move the country forward. Guess what - those disgusting people had to compromise too.

You can't blame Biden for what other people think. It needs to stop.

More SCOTUS decisions today:

Gundy v. US (Kagan, 5-3) - Delegation of Powers case involving the Sex Offender Registration & Notification Act. Affirmed that Congress can delegate logistical authority to the AG via legislation.

McDonough v. Smith (Sotomayor, 6-3) - Timeliness of appeals. Affirmed that he waited too long to file.

American Legion v. American Humanist Association (Alito, 7-2) - Monuments on public lands & state establishment of religion. This decision is a really complicated one & has multiple concurrent opinions.

PDR Network v. Carlton & Harris Chiropractic (Gorsuch, 9-0) - Not exactly sure on this one, I need to read it. Something about telecommunications. Another decision with multiple concurrences.

That peace Cross is not far from us. In this case, I think it was a good decision.

It was originally a private monument, built on private land, by a private organization, with private money.

Maryland took the land to expand the highway.

Good morning, bloggers!!!

We are continuing with our cool and rainy end of spring. It was 56 degrees when I went to get dinner last night. Fog was rising from the pavement and my breath was condensing.

I am wrapping up late spring cleaning and putting some applications out there.

The rain is also impacting crops here in the Midwest and elsewhere.

Indiana farmers almost done planting after wet spring.
NDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana farmers are getting closer to completing the crop planting that's been badly delayed by this spring's frequent rains.

The newest U.S. Department of Agriculture report shows 84 percent of Indiana's expected corn crop was planted at the start of this week. That's up from just 31 percent from two weeks ago but the state's five-year average would have all the corn crop planted.

Farmers in neighboring states are also struggling. Illinois has 88 percent of its corn crop planted, while Ohio is only has 68 percent completed.

Agriculture officials say the wet spring has forced some farmers to consider switching corn acreage to other crops.

I've heard that farmers up in Vermont are having issues planting too.

A lot of places have been cooler than normal. Yesterday, BC and Alberta were getting snow alerts. Even in Canada, it's not supposed to happen this time of year.
