wow! some weather! t&r!


T and R, jcb!! 🇺🇸☮️😊👍 Could you kindly send some of that NY weather down here? It is sunny, dry, 86–feels like 90+, and hot. 💥☀️Hopefully, it will break over the long holiday weekend. 🙄


Send some here Orl last couple days have been only the high 40s to low 50s with out the wind chills, frost in some areas to mid 30s for lows and were going into June!!!!


This has been one of the strangest weather patterns for Memorial Day weekend, which is supposed to kick off the summer! It’s back to early May!


Update, the 3 day weekend here is no forecasted to be in the 60 low 70s and lows in the 40s –no rain!!!! It usually rains about 70% of the time during this weekend so not complaining –yard work time!!


Another day of cold, wind, and rain here in CT on Sunday – a high of 49 and another inch of rain expected.

We finally broke down and turned the heat on last night, it had gone down to 59 in the house and I was so cold! Two days from June and we have our heat on. I heard it snowed a bit in Toronto on Friday:

33C is about 91.5F

I hope you got a break from your heat orl!


It’s cloudy today and rain is in the forecast. We need it as that is the cooling factor down here and always has been. You all in CT and WI have those cool temps. Climate change in all its (pollution caused) colors. 🙁


We all knew he was a bad egg.

“Recognizing that the goal of our clients is to prevent and manage their business risks, we regularly counsel and train clients on union avoidance, employee terminations, arbitration, and contract administration and interpretation,” Venable’s website says.

In another area of its website, the firm says that its “lawyers regularly advise and represent clients in connection with matters before the National Labor Relations Board, union negotiations and organizing, labor strikes, picketing, and corporate campaigns.”

One Venable partner’s firm bio brags that he “defeated a labor union bid for recognition as the collective bargaining representative after advising and coordinating the employer’s five-month anti-union campaign.”

Another Venable lawyer’s bio gloats that she secured a “favorable result for [a] corporation undergoing a Department of Labor investigation regarding violations of the Federal Labor Standards Act.”

According to Maryland Matters, Perez’s job at Venable is only part time, and he could still run for governor in Maryland in 2022.


Thinking we’ll be hearing more about China going forward.
