* Yesterday was incredibly frustrating with lots of reboots and general computer fuckery and me having to constantly get up to solve problems around the apartment. I did finally achieve stability and was getting real work done, when Tavy ran over and flopped onto the keyboard before I could stop him, turning it off. I extracted him from the lap top and went off to try to salvage a light bulb from a dead fish light in hopes the light was dead for electricals and the bulb was good (fish grow lights are very expensive), as one of the bulbs went out on the twenty that both twenty tanks are now sharing. I usually get the fish store guys to do the big lights as it's tools and tiny fiddly bits that my hands can't really do properly anymore. Extracting the bulb from the dead light was reasonably easy as I own screwdrivers, and I trapped all the small parts in the body of the light just in case. I start to take the second light apart and the fixture flew apart when I loosened the second screw with an alarming ting. Like all of it came apart and not just the bit I wanted, because of course. I can't examine the assembled fixture properly as doing so might endanger a light I knew worked and couldn't afford to loose. I did manage to proof of concept well enough to prove the bulb was still good, but I could not for the life of me get it to match and the thing wasn't stable. Then I realized... missing part. no sign of the thing anywhere. I take the equivalent missing bit from the dead light, construct a prop, start to put it together, discover the screw driver also missing. Because of course. Also, Tavy keeps trying to help. because small loose fiddly bits are his favorite toys. I finger tighten and figure I'll improvise with scissors as they are closer to the right size for the philips head later. I get it assembled and test. Light works as is so bright and beautiful. (Yes, you are supposed to replace both bulbs at once, but unless you are buying me a big ass aquabulb, don't complain.) I take the sofa apart and find the screw driver, tighten, secure and close. It took an hour and a half what with all the help and missing things. The missing piece turned out to be literally under the light, which I discover when I put it back. Fun. next on the list it seeing if I can get one working light out of the 30 light Tavy toasted and a dead supplemental. These, of course are a different shape bulb with different fixtures. Sigh. Not tonight.

* So it turns out that if you email Tom's of Maine to ask them specific questions about their toothpaste, they call you up and talk to you about toothpaste preferences, and they mail you a free full sized tube to try!

I adored Tom's of Maine as they made non-mint flavours, but I was warned off by my Dentist in the mid-90's because of my genetically fragile teeth. (Not a problem for normal people, and said friend says their toothpaste is smooth instead of gritty, so they may have entirely changed formulations in the intervening two decades.) I was advising a friend recently and discovered they'd dramatically expanded their product line and contacted them on the off. I'll test out the taste and texture and see how it goes, since I'd love to be able to switch back. I hate Colgate and Sensadyne flavourwise, and I react badly to peppermint because of my sensory difference. (Spearmint and Wintergreen are fine, but most other mints not so much).

I admit to hoping they might send me a small travel sized tube for testing, I was not expecting a full sized one. Good on you Tom's of Maine. I adore your deodorant, and your mouthwash is entirely inoffensive and does not send me into sensory overload. I am so hoping the propolis and myrrh is safe and pleasant. I'm not a fan of myrrh as a scent, but I admit to curiousity. My hope is if the texture is right and the flavour wrong, I might try the children's flavours. Anyway, fingers crossed.

In other mint news, they had discontinued my tummy tea, hence my inability to find it since I started looking 'round the turn of the year. I was forced to search out a new brand with May's food allotment. I tested it on a queasiness mid-month, and turns out that Numi Moroccan Mint is "sweet spearmint" like as promised, richly flavoured and inoffensive, butter tasting than the old brand.

* There was a last minute bidding flurry, for which I am grateful, but the most valuable thing on there went for about half of what it would have made if I'd waited until Fall. Sigh. The bill I floated last month got paid this afternoon out of my government money. I can for sure pay the bill coming due end of next week. I am suspecting I haven't enough for 2nd bill when it hits mid month, but I won't know how short I am until we get there. Clearly I am not getting paper towels this month as I'd hoped and I may have to do another auction. Which means picking sacrifices. Worse, I may do an imp lot which is waaaaay harder without Main computer's database, but the immediate emergency is solved.

"So, what can people do?*:" http://brigdh.tumblr.com/post/161640495373/so-what-can-people-do

* The House has voted to completely defund the Election Assistance Commission presumably in response to reporting that the Russians have compromised election databases in 39 states and have interfered with the 2016 elections on all levels, since the Election Assistance Commission exists to fight exactly this sort of tampering. It is looking like Republicans feel that letting Putin delete eligible voters from the rolls and pick winners in our elections is way more important than patriotism, Democracy, etc.. I can't think of a single other reason they would take such strong steps to render our elections easier to hack instead of taking the logical step of dramatically increasing funding for the sake of National Security in the face of evidence that our system is vulnerable. Party before Country seems to once again be the motivating principle for this decision. Every single person who voted for this is complicit. Every single one of them decided they would rather be in power in a Russian client state than take the chance of a fair election in a free country.

WE NEED TO KEEP THE PRESSURE ON. If you have Heller, Collins, Portman, Capito, or Moran for Senators, please take the time to call them and thank them for taking a stand against the Senate Health Care Bill. If you have any other Republican Senator or senators, please call in opposition to the bill. If you can get to their offices in person, consider doing so. This isn't over and they ma try to sneak the bill through in July. Republican leadership won't be resting, so we can't afford to either.

It really does help them retain spine in the face of what they are likely dealing with behind close doors.

If you have any Republican senators, please, please call them between now and the vote. We need to flip one more minimum, though more would make it much safer as betting on spine from politicians of any stripe is a recipe for disaster.

That goes 100x more if you have Capito, Lee, Murkowski, Portman, Cruz, or Paul for a senator. Please, please, please put the pressure on this week. Some of these folks are more likely to tip for right wing reasons than progressive ones, but they are on the short list for getting to the third no.

* Look, I get that Republicans believe the proper response to any terrorist event is Muppet armed panic and victim blaming, followed by giving the Terrorists what they want by giving them excellent recruitment material, oppressing innocent people also condemning the attack, and using it as an pretext to suspend civil liberties in the hopes of imposing a fascist Autocracy, but I am fundamentally of the opinion that we should respond calmly and rationally, extending aid and empathy to victims and survivors, retaining our core values, doing what we can to avoid helping the recruitment of more terrorists, and retaining our best core values.

* Finally! The Justice Department (Rob Rosenstein, not Jeff Sessions) has appointed a Special Council. Let us see if Robert Mueller's properly independent in practice.

* For the record, I do think that the Comey firing is pretty clearly obstruction of justice, which ought to be an impeachable offense along with several other charges related to that, such as witness intimidation. At the same time, Comey has show that he is biased, and I do actually prefer Mueller as lead investigator. Ideally, I'd like to see all the currently in progress investigations proceed with vigor, but assuming Trump doesn't fire Mueller, my suspicion is that it's going to be him and/or possibly the FBI (if Trump doesn't get to put in a loyalist who will order a cover up) and/or the financial crimes guys most likely to actually DO something. Congressional Republicans have made it clear they have zero interest in national security or protecting the rule of law in this country by deciding to slow walk their investigations and doing everything in their power to aid in the cover up instead of acting in the best interests of the country and the world. The Mueller appointment is the first hopeful thing I've seen on the Trump/Russia/Espionage/treason/money laundering/multiple felonies front in...since the beginning maybe. I'm not holding my breath because too much can go wrong with an autocrat in power, but I do feel a tiny bit better.

* Class: I really like that Matteusz got a whole set of hero moments, and that ram got to talk about his relationship with his religion and his father. It was good seeing April really coming into her own as a character and that the family drama did not wrap up neatly and unrealistically the way most shows would have done. The Governors are terrifying and clearly will grow as antagonists, given enough space and episodes. I think the theme today was character and it was lovely how parallel April/Ram was with The Prince/Matteusz. The part where April's mom frames the healing as violent and a violation and affirms the value of her life the way it is. It was really affirming and the opposite of what most shows do.

* I've been debating what to say about the two page of a 2005 tax return that was released, because frankly, two pages out of what are likely many from what is likely the Spiders Georg of Trump tax returns (an outlier), don't actually answer the questions sensible people have about his business dealings and finances. They don't even answer a host of questions one has about 2005. We'd need the whole tax return for that year and a whole bunch of others to get a clear picture. We don't have them, so meh. I'll be all over it if a proper release where ever to occur, but I'm not holding my breath as I don't see that happening without a subpoena or something similar.

* Republicans want to remind you that raising health care costs for Middle and Working Class Americans and the Elderly by about 1500.00 a year and kicking millions of the working poor off their health care while dramatically cutting Medicaid is absolutely necessary to give the extremely wealthy CEOs of insurance companies their massive tax breaks. They promise expected rise of 30% in what people will have to pay for health care next year under their plan will actually help the working poor and Middle Class by forcing them to pay money they don't have to not die.

* Jason Chaffitz is so rich and incredibly entitled he thinks people making minimum wage have a month's pay to waste on an iphone seven instead of spending that on NOT BEING HOMELESS. The choice he is asking people to make is not between a luxury and health care, but Rent and Healthcare. Yes, Mr. Chafitz, it is about choices. Choosing to pay rent IS the responsible choice for the working poor, but YOUR CHOICE to literally kill people by denying them health care to pay for yet another tax cut fior the very rich rich is cruel and evil.
