My trusty 10 year old LX5 got to the point of not being feasible to repair, so I gave it to one of the hotel staff. Purchased a ZS100 which enables 250 zoom shots and will be much better as I like candid and ocean ones, so many pictures below are from my cell phone. :(
Reel repair time. :)
Looking across at the boy below who took the picture.
Quite good and only 18 calories. Love the soup.
I splurged and bought my most expensive street food, so far at $1.50. (Two meals for me) It was about the best I have ever eaten. I don't relate to the amount being cheap back home, but expensive here.
After a prolonged and heated debate, the Alabama House voted Thursday
to pass a bill that makes it tougher to remove monuments and
historically significant structures from public property.
The Alabama Memorial Preservation Act would make the removal of any
monuments on public land subject to approval by the Committee on Alabama
Monument Protection, a body that the bill would create. The bill passed
the House by a vote of 72-29 after nearly three hours of debate.
On the heels of major shakeups at the Fox News Network, an
alternative conservative network is being actively discussed amongst
conservative fat cats.
A well-placed source close to the proposal tells Mediaite
that serious discussions are underway to create an alternative
conservative cable network on the belief that the Fox News Network
is moving too far to the left. The source, who is engaged in the talks,
says a meeting is planned for today with two prominent high-powered
television executives, some underperforming conservative networks and
people who have an interest and the ability to fund a new network.
President Donald Trump on Friday said he would name one of the most
prominent anti-abortion activists in the country to a top communications
post at HHS.
Charmaine Yoest, tapped to be assistant secretary of public affairs,
is a senior fellow at American Values. She is the former president of
Americans United for Life, which has been instrumental in advancing
anti-abortion legislation at the state level to restrict access to the
In a disturbing video now posted on YouTube, two pro-life teens can
be seen being targeted and harassed by a public high school assistant
principal from Downingtown, Pennsylvania on April 21.
The teens, 16-year-old Conner Haines and his 19-year-old sister
Lauren, triggered the boastfully gay administrator by holding up
pro-life signs on public property, which is perfectly within their
(This is America, not North Korea.) The unraveling official,
Zach Ruff, who serves as STEM Academy's dean of academics and student
life, cursed out the Haines teens, threatened to call the police on them
and even sang loudly over the activists as a small child would when
annoyed by a sibling.
The video clip opens with an already visibly irate Ruff confronting
the teens, telling them not to "harass" his "children" by holding up
their pro-life signs, threatening to call the police on them.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu cannot stomach the sight of Robert
E. Lee in his city. So one of the city’s most famous landmarks, the
statue in Lee Circle in downtown New Orleans, will soon be toppled.
Landrieu refers to the towering Lee statue as an “aberration.” Historic
statues of Jefferson Davis and Confederate General PGT Beauregard are
also slated for imminent disgrace and demolition.
first gave vent to his anti-Confederate-monument fetish back in 2015,
declaring the monuments “public nuisances” which necessitated prompt
removal. The majority black city-council voted 6-to-1 in his favor for
removal. (Meanwhile the city’s murder rate soared past Chicago’s and
potholes dating from Hurricane Katrina still cratered many city
Initially lawsuits by historic preservation groups held
up the avenging cranes, bulldozers and jackhammers. But the legal path
has been cleared and soon the hydraulic engines will roar into action
against these intolerable and downright dangerous “public nuisances.”
I have a message for President Trump. Congress will never pay to build the wall.
Democrats will never fund the wall. They no
longer care about either America, or middle class Americans, or American
workers. They couldn’t care less about heroin, or cocaine, or a myriad
of other deadly drugs flooding our nation, killing our children.
They couldn’t care less about Kate Steinle or Sarah Root, two beautiful, precious young American women killed by illegal aliens.
They couldn’t care less about $20 trillion in debt,
fueled by massive government giveaways to millions of illegals flooding
our country. We are bleeding and going bankrupt.
Our streets are flooded with drugs. Our public
schools have been ruined. Our healthcare system is overwhelmed. In
California, dams are ready to burst, threatening millions of citizens.
Our infrastructure is in decay and disrepair from coast to coast.
Democrats don’t care. They desperately need the votes of illegals and
Establishment Republicans will never fund the wall.
Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and their ilk are world class cowards, afraid
of their own shadows. Afraid of being called “racist.” Afraid of losing
Latino votes. Afraid of losing contributions from greedy billion-dollar
multi-national corporations and corrupt lobbyists- all desperately
wanting cheap labor.
The biased liberal media will never allow you to fund the wall.
Mexico will never voluntarily fund the wall. They
want the drugs to keep flowing. Their government is bought and paid for
by drug dealers and human traffickers.
But you can get it funded Mr. President. I have the game plan.
Meet the 3rd generation Politically correct Croat who has much reverence for his own ethnic past but wants to tear ours down. He has no Confederate roots so our history doesn't matter to him just like Nikki Haley who is a second generation Indian Sikh (family only came here in the 1960s) and whom has great reverence for her Sikh ancestry, but none for our Confederate heritage. We have a great leadership crisis in Dixie as so many of our politicians are not of real Southern blood!!

As part of its "Flags Across the Carolinas" project, the North Carolina Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans has unveiled a massive confederate flag along Interstate 95 in Cumberland County.
The 20-by-30-foot flag, which is on a pole about 90 feet in the air, sits just off the southbound lanes of the highway between mile marker 63 and 64 near Godwin.
Drivers passing the location have honked their horns and stopped to take pictures since it went up on Wednesday.
Josh Hagge was one of the drivers who stopped. He says he's happy to see it.
"It shows people that this is the South. It's a symbol for the South. It's not hatred," Hagge said. "People think it is, but it's not, really.

already under growing fire from some in the conservative camps who
think she’s exerting too much influence over dad Donald, is now calling
for the White House to open doors to Syrian refugees.
Conservatives and border control advocates are quite right to be concerned.
soft stance on refugees would seem a direct conflict with President
Donald Trump’s campaign promises to crack down on borders — and
particularly, on the entrance of refugees from terror-tied nations who
could prove a national security danger to American citizens.
The famous first daughter said
in an interview with MSNBC just recently: “I think there is a global
humanitarian crisis that’s happening and we have to come together and we
have to solve it.”
So does that mean open U.S. doors to refugees, Ivanka?
“That has to be part of the discussion,” she said. “But that’s not going to be enough in and or itself.”
