Am thrilled to note that the Surf City place is nearly inhabitable again. We had a few usable weeks last summer, between finishing the rehab post-hurricane Florence (hit Sept. 14, 2018), and the arrival of hurricane Isaias (August 4, 2020). So it really feels as though we’ve not been there for real for 2 1/2 years, and we’re very excited about seeing this come to an end. I’d installed a “blink” camera to see the place remotely (as I’ve done to the exterior here in Greenville), and yesterday’s view showed workers nearly finishing up the flooring downstairs. We’ll head down there this weekend; the plan is to stay, teach from there, etc.


Now we see our nation’s representatives balking at removing an absolute loon from responsibilities on committees. Seriously, what could possibly prevent them from actually standing for something resembling integrity? More shameful coattails of the most corrupt, inept, ineffective, narcissistic person to be elected to POTUS. Just beyond shameful, yet again. Here’s just a few of this representative’s stances:

And more, about the Parkland school shooting

or backing Qanon, or supporting “putting a bullet in Pelosi’s head”…

This is what Kevin McCarthy and his party have become; unwilling to look at this and stand up to say she has no place in the U.S. Congress.
