Miscellaneous Rambling

I find out later today whether Tess' flowers survived the freeze. We have hundreds of flowers in the field.

Wow: Judge Dismisses Stormy Daniels Lawsuit Against Trump, Orders Her to Pay His Legal Fees. It's rare that a party is ordered to pay another party's legal fees. Unless there's a statute that requires it, a judge, in order to award fees, pretty much has to conclude that the lawsuit was fraudulent: filed in bad faith, no basis in fact, etc. The rules could be different in California in this regard, but I doubt it.

For the record, I, too, am 1/32nd American Indian . . . or maybe it's 1/64th. Either way, I definitely have American Indian blood. My g-g-g-g-? grandfather on my mother's side in the 19th century was an Indian. No joke. It helped not a jot when I applied to Harvard.
