OMG...what a gorgeous day!  Long long walk in the woods and along the ocean.  Easter is looking even better.  Be sure to plan outdoor time!

Thanks :)
Yes, the GHS students sailed fast.
The Hingham students were  fun as well. We all had a great time.
What good luck looking at the weather today!

Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing ANGUS King run for governor again.

That is kind of cool, FC.  I am thinking about how that might work in some of the volunteer activities I do where I spend a lot of time standing up.  Things like canvassing and signature gathering.  I'd have to try it but I think it would be off-putting.  Still there are surely jobs where it would be helpful.

😂😃😂   Hey no fair posting an April Fool's on April 2!  It is actually not a bad idea though.

I definitely want one of these units! 

What a great gift this would make. 

Be sure to buy the matching gaiters, though.

I cleared out my email!  I won't say how many and I only read ones where I recognize the sender for the most part. When I get overwhelmed and can't keep up with deleting, I archive them by date range.  Very liberating to see only 1 email in my box...it is from Word of the Day which is often fun.  Today's word is frumious which I will need to go read about and delete.  Apparently means very angry...a cross between furious and fuming and has some relation to Lewis Carroll.  I'd forgotten it.

Question for Dick Morningwood: How do you feel about the Fed's seizing backpage.com?

You didn't ask me, but I'll respond anyway.  :-)

I did a big yay!  I've long tried to follow the human trafficking issues - both trafficking for sex and labor.  I think that it is a much bigger problem than anyone pays attention to.  Related:  Craigslist recently and voluntarily shut down their personals pretty much because of the trafficking issues

I definitely think the simultaneous closing of both is related and I applaud it. I was just playing around with Mr. Morningwood because he's a rascal 😅

On the subject though, what concerns me is so many unaccompanied minors crossing the border on a regular basis. Who knows where they end up?

Rascally he is.  :-)

Trafficking of immigrants is huge in ways people might not think.  Traffickers lure young, naive foreign victims with promises of valid immigration status and jobs, smuggle them into the country (most have no idea that they are being smuggled - they believe that everything is on the up and up) when, in fact, they have already been sold to employers for labor, including sex, and are kept as slaves.  The market is huge for young Asian girls - which is where I get really pissed off.  No one ever seems to be going after the people who create the market - the end users.  If there was no market in this country for sex with young Asian girls ...
