I Protest!!! Vigorously!!!!

  • Pink captures President Bush's callous disregard with heart-rending accuracy. This song makes me cry every time I hear it.
  • Jackson Brown's new song is fabulous! Lives in the Balance truly touches on the choices facing America today.
  • An Arlo Guthrie classic! You'd be amazed at how it fits our modern war ethics.
  • Bruce Hornsby's finest. We are treating the Katrina survivors the same way.
  • By Phil Ochs. Not what you'd think. He wrote it following the murder of three civil rights workers in the mid '60's. Still pertinent today, I fear.
  • This one's by Lindsay Buckingham. All hail the 4th estate!
  • Song by the late, great Harry Chapin. It references Vietman, but remains pithy.
  • By Bright Eyes. One of the best protest songs to come along in years.
  • From the musical, 1776.
    Check it out - the reference may be Revolutionary War era, but the sentiment rocks!

Ha, that spider looks like the ones that spun webs all over our path (through the cow pasture, across the creek, through the woods, then through the neighbor's yard) to catch the schoolbus, when I was a kid. I used to hate being the first one walking the path.

Those flowers are gorgeous. The reds and oranges are so brightly eye-catching. Fantastic!


Life in the bonnies looks beautiful to me! =)


Hey FLS,

Monarda - I've always called it bee balm, and mine are lucky to reach three feet! You must have some super fertile soil there. My bee balm flowers only get as big as a golf ball (those look much bigger) and they won't bloom for another month.

Your plants must love the heat and humidity...

It's been so cool and rainy - again - in Boston that everybody here is feeling down. It was nice to see some blue sky, even if it was only in your photo.


The monarda do resemble crowns. What an intense red, very rich color. Probably the high humidity is what's causing the flowers to behave as if on steroids.

I laughed out loud, spit tea on my monitor, at the comment about 105 degree summers being a dry heat. Honey, where I come from, once the temperature exceeds 85, I create my own humidity. Hot is freaking hot.

Sister Faith

Fat Lady,

Your flowers make my heart sing!


Love your flowers. Even in this heat, the garden grows.


Love your flowers! Love your trees! Ugleeee spider!! LOL


I've been camping in the hills not far from there. It really is pretty country, if you can stand the humidity. I LOVE it :o)

You surround yourself with beauty. So amazing.
