So I made this lovely photo of my oldest grandson running through a fountain. I made a special enlargement of it by making a painting on the wall behind the photo.Then sunset came by. I absolutely love it.
In 1963 and in 1991 parts of Charles County in Maryland USA, were very poor, I found out recently. In 2020 Joe Biden won with an amazing lead: much bigger than Clinton did in 2016. Most remarkable result: in this county Biden collected less than 9% of his votes on election day. How blue are… Continue reading Charles County and the mules
Things you don’t expect on a fruit bowl.

I do want to cry out..

In a note below an explanation of my vote. I repeat the complete note here for a reason: Superficially the hero of many radical world reformers, Rudi Dutschke… Continue reading Rudi Dutschke’s mind blowing success
