PURITANS FAR FROM PRUDISH

You probably thought Puritans were prudish about sex. No way. The label “Puritan” is misleading. Roughly one third of Puritan women were pregnant at the time of their weddings.

Their enthusiasm for sex carried over into marriage. Sexual satisfaction was considered a religious duty, and if a man was unable to “please his wife in the bedroom, it was grounds for divorce.”

Trump makes me sick! One lie after another!

One of the more recent has to do with abortion. He was able to kill Roe v. Wade with his Supreme Court appointments.  He said he was going to do it and did it. He said he would get rid of Roe v. Wade and did so.

Trump now sees a large number of Americans oppose the Dobbs decision which killed Roe v. Wade. So he backtracks. He now pretends he is a moderate on abortion.

Bullshit!

Beware my friends, his position has not changed. If he wins, Trump will further decimate reproductive rights.

Ladies, he does not care about you one iota, except perhaps for sex.

Local Key Wester Rich Boettger wrote an excellent article on the firing of the City Manager. His article is titled “The Bubba Coup, Explained.” It appears in the July 6 edition of KONK Life.

A set of  Napoleon’s elaborately decorated pistols recently sold for $1.8 million at auction.

Dolley Madison.

Note I spell Dolley with an e. First time. All the times I have written about her, it was always Dolly. No e. I had to be 89 years old to know I was doing wrong.

Dolley Madison was “a special first lady.” It has been said she set the standard for first ladies to follow.

Her husband was James Madison, fourth Presidnet of the U.S. Dolley was first lady from 1809 to 1817. She is especially known for her bravery during the War of 1812. As the British were were preparing to burn the White House, she remained to save a portrait of George Washington from falling into British hands. A few minutes more, she and Washington’s portrait would both have been in British hands.

Dolley died in 1841 at the age of 81. Three years earlier at 78, she posed for a portrait. The photo was auctioned last week at Sotheby’s.

The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery paid $456,000. It is the “earliest known photograph of an American first lady.” It will reside in the museum permanently along side the “first known photograph” of a U.S. Presidnet. An 1843 portrait of John Quincy Adams.

Stopped yesterday at Date & Thyme for a Monkey Smoothie for lunch. Suddenly, “Poppa!” It was Ally. She was meeting friends for lunch.

Love the girl! She and Robert are two great people. I’m lucky to have them as grandchildren.

Live and learn…..A hippopotamus can become airborne for a substantial period of time latest research has revealed. The mammal which can weigh up to 8,000 pounds leaves the ground when moving fast. Something animals like rhinos and elephants cannot do.

Based on research done by the Royal Veterinary College, hippos can be up in the air as long as 0.3 seconds when moving fast. The reason being hippos trot whereas elephants, rhinos and horses do not.

Blog late today. My apologies. A very busy day compounded by the heat. This exceptional heat kills me. I began the day at 7 with physiotherapy. Opened Date & Thyme just after 8 for a Smoothie. Then spent the day with a doctor visit and hospital test. Plus several other things that had to be done. Made it home by 2. Threw myself into bed and slept till now.

Enjoy your evening! It’s that time already!

  1. Trump has always lied and there’s no reason to believe that will ever change. Yet, one bad night at a hostile debate with that liar and the press is going bat shote, claiming he’s unfit for office, but lying at just about anything is OK?

    Come on folks, Reagan was much more incapacitated during his second term and that didn’t seen to matter. Biden may not be in the best of health, but he’s a far better candidate than Trump could ever be, and that’s the actual truth.
