Too tired to think after 200 miles riding yesterday.

More coffee!

Den,

We are certainly honored to be included among such beauty.

We're all getting our semi-annual baths today, along with protection from flies, fleas, ticks and other biting, blood-sucking, ear-waxing, nasties...and then maybe Poppi can rest!

-Trudy, Primus, Trey, 'Lil Jill, Ezzy, Goatdiva, Bucky, Pabla and Duncan NoNuts.

You are a lucky man Hajji.

DEN -- are those yellow flowers MULES EARS? If so, how apropos with Hajji's menagerie photos!

David B. Benson said...

More pics! More pics!

:-)

DEN said...

Micki, yes I believe they are Mules Ears. An abundance of wildflowers above 4000 ft elevation worthy of pictures.

Nature always makes me feel humble in her presence.

Duncan No-Nuts?

Duncan No-Nuts?

I believe he's a Glazed Gelding, DEN.

Oh, boy.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The White House Office of Administration is not required to turn over records about a trove of possibly missing e-mails, a federal judge ruled Monday.

The White House Office of Administration is not bound by the Freedom of Information Act, a judge says.

The ruling by U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly found the agency does not have "substantial independent authority" so it is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act.

The decision means the White House does not have to disclose documents relating to its troubled e-mail system. That system developed problems that may have caused millions of White House e-mails to be unaccounted for.

The watchdog organization Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington had sued under FOIA. The group expressed disappointment in the ruling and said it is appealing the decision.

Remarkable.

There are now at least three taxi companies in town.

David B. Benson said...

Carol --- Have you been flooded out?

DEN said...

"substantial independent authority" will not stand up in a court of REAL law, it's the government stoopid!

Freedom of information means ALL governmental entities that receives it's funding from the public trough.
No CYA allowed there.

Besides the numbers of dead as a result of this bogus war is enough to sink the monkey barge anyhoo.

Vincent Bugliosi seems to think the case has merit.

Doc, not flooded here. We've had lots of rain and thank goodness. I get so sick of hauling water to things I've transplanted and the tomatoes that I just planted Tuesday. The weather has held up gardening WAY too long.

And today it's chilly. I've had to shut most of the windows, but then I break out in a sweat and open some again. Bob said he heard it's going down to 44° tonight! NOOOOO!!!

Micki, I saw that bit about the White House saying they are once again above the law earlier on CNN. Their being above the law is getting mighty, mighty old. Over 500 people in congress and they do nothing to stop the Bush gang. I know we all hope more repugs get the boot in November. Like enough so the dems can pass any damn thing they want. I'm hoping for some miracles, eh? Ha!

Hajji said...

Jeanne,

You are a lucky man Hajji.

True, 'dat!

(and for so many, many reasons!)

The goat is beautiful! I want to see a picture of Pabla.

micki said...

CREW responds to that court ruling on FOIA

micki said...

Carol -- I was going to ask you about your tomatoes and other veggies. Glad they're in the ground working towards harvest.

I planted some pole beans yesterday. I had started them from seed, but wasn't satisfied I had the "perfect" spot for them. So, I had to dig up a spread of ground cover to make a home for them.

I swear they grew overnite! Jack and the Beanstalk move over!

Among other tomatoes varieties, I'm trying heirlooms again. They're so damned tastey!
