...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732
Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

A new symbol for the United States. Click here for article.
The American bison and the European bison (wisent) are the largest terrestrial animals in North America and Europe. Bison are good swimmers and can cross rivers over half a mile (800 meters) wide. They are nomadic grazers and travel in herds. The bulls leave the herds of females at two or three years of age, and join a male herd, which are generally smaller than female herds. Mature bulls rarely travel alone. Towards the end of the summer, for the reproductive season, the sexes necessarily commingle. American bison are known for living in the Great Plains. Both species were hunted close to extinction during the 19th and 20th centuries, but have since rebounded. The American plains bison is no longer listed as endangered, but the wood bison is on the endangered species list in Canada

It is wonderful right now. The temperature is perfect. BG has turned off the AC and Todd and I can be on the porch and go in and out as we want. Of course the "other dog" on the south has been barking and we don't like that.
Our roomer was over and took care of us one day while BG was having surgery on his forehead.
It is called Mohs surgery and it took from 9 am until about 1 and then he has been feeling punk since then. He has been watching TV and popping Tylenol. So he is no fun.
He has stitches on his head and so he is just sitting around much of the time. Hope you liked seeing our pictures....that is the tail for this week.
Have a good week. Woof!

Long lines at fast food joints cause wait gain.
Some bankers are generous to a vault.
