I have some guesses....

In the old days non-citizens and their citizen spouses used to have periodic interviews with INS. They were asked a lot of questions about their intimate lives. I was never interviewed by them during my short marriage to my children's father, but friends of his and mine underwent these grillings.

Certain behaviors in the bed-room are forbidden for Muslims. So sometimes one partner would admit to the behavior and the other partner would deny it out of embarrassment.

So a few ladies took me aside and warned me never to lie about things like that to the INS. He already knew about it because he had a false marriage before. He paid a woman a grand or so, married her and they got together to discuss their fictional love life on a regular basis. He quite literally did not know what to do with me when we married! I had to TELL him!

Good thing I'd read 'Our Bodies Ourselves'! Good thing my mother was so informative!

¿¡Ma Daj??!

I had not realized that this painter died within my life-time. That is damned interesting.

This is therefore modern...

Included for irony on this date...

You all know the rest.

Sure there's 10 other counts but ma daj!

Then again, these guys are spending Vidovdan in prison:

I have been through Višoko, that's where the alleged pyramid is.

This is sad and she's not alone:

Many of this woman's health issues related to what she suffered in the war.

I hope there is a serious verdict against the jail.

Latinos have suffered the same way with immigration holds.

Two busted for war crimes:,0,4872597.storyšegrad-to-bury-their-dead

It's hot here today. I have my grand-children. Their usual sitter gave birth yesterday to a lovely little girl.

So we are flaked out under two small fans and one big one. I am glad I did not get rid of cable TV after all!

They would be soooo bored.

My grandson is now interested in mining and mines. Rud i rudari, not the mine i paže mine radi crvena magla kind.

So I showed him pictures of the miners in West Virginia and about the Battle of Mlair Mountain and about children who were miners.

He has a toy hard hat and has appropriated his father's retro black dinner bucket. He talks about beams. It's so adorable!

I did advise him he could go to college and learn how to be a mine engineer, it a well paid line of work. His father is a civil engineer. So engineering is familiar. He saw his father doing the stacks of homework.

He drew a good diagram of beams too.

Tonight's News:

Dobbs continues his series;

I read of this place before and of course was horrified:

I had a nice day today. Mr. T. And I spend most of our time together. But today, I went elsewhere with a friend of ours.

He was supposed to rest. He must not have been able to rest, he took a walk.

We went to that friend's house. Mr. T can't be around incense. These folks have a cat, and that usually means at some point you have to use incense.

So the evening broke up a little early :(

Well maybe we'll have them here or to my place.

We tended the garden as usual. It is doing nicely! There are some new tiny green Nuba on a few strawberries. If they don't fruit any more I will understand. That one fruit was their way of saying 'Thank You!'

It was tiny and delicious. Mr. T. is super tired. He needs to just be left be.
