I cannot wait for spring



We might have some more winter weather coming in this week.  In addition to it getting really fornicating cold this week we also might have some more winter precipitation coming in too.

I am so ready for spring to come now.  I am so fornicating sick of winter.  I need to get off my fat you know what and get riding my bike again.  I need the exercise and I need to resume my nasty and disgusting habit of posting GoPro timelapse videos of my bike ride adventures.

I highly recommend getting a fat tire bike so you can ride in the winter.

One of my sons has one of those.  I do get nervous about him biking in winter because we have no bike paths or any bike friendly roads between our home and his work, but he takes the side streets which adds some distance but it's safer.

If only I could get him to stop locking it up in our locked garage because one time, years ago, his sister borrowed his bike without asking.  She doesn't even live at home anymore, but still locking it.

      I think the outcomes of Jill and Jessa are very swayed by headships. If Derrick had kept in line, he and Jill might still have been on the show. Then came dancing and public school. If Ben put his foot down and said I no longer want my family on tv, I think we would see changes in Jessa. Especially if they moved out of state and Jessa had to start raising a family without her families support.

      The only optimistic read I can make of the video is that Jessa is in the doubling down phase that often comes before real change (and often lasts years). I think often when people are starting to sense that there may be something not quite right about what they were taught/how they were raised, they go into defense mode and (hopefully) temporarily become even more entrenched as a way of protecting themselves from the excruciating pain of having to change and admit some really hard things about their families, beliefs, or pasts. Of course it's also possible that Jessa has zero inner turmoil and is just happily supporting her brand.

      I can see Jessa going either way, Jill doubled down at first and it took time for her gradually change. I think once the show is over we will see if she starts changing drastically or not. She likes things the way they are just now because they are getting money and a house from Jim Bob and she isn’t struggling the way the family did at times in the early day's.

      YES!  She has a large forehead and her brows are exaggerated, so when she pulls her hair back it's just....not flattering.

      I think she looks the best in that old pic on her blog, with a bob cut just above the shoulders and bangs.  She has a long face and a sharp chin...the looooong hair around it just accentuates it.

      I went and got a pic and I shouldn't have.  I can't stop laughing.  It looks like one of her selfies.

      Tom took Asher to the dentist to get a cavity filled.

      I'm glad he is at least doing this. Tooth pain is so awful. These kids have to have mouths full of rotting teeth.

      Then I wondered - what is Debi's background education that she is writing books about using your brain? When I answered myself, I weeped for fundies who fall for all this shit. Whether from the abusive Pearls or the extreme sheltering Maxwells - what makes fundies jump all in for other fundie's "writings"? There is a lot of fundie talk about discernment - but I don't think any of them know how to use it. 

      Science hostility.  NYT covers it here relative to corona virus, but fundies hate science and scientists because it might call into question the over all excellence of even the most dismal homeschool education (the "well common sense certainly tells you that..." bubble) and science disproves the bible so we can't have that, so you have multiple generations of ignorant people. 

      New York Times op-ed not behind a paywall that lays it out:   The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science Is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response  Trump’s response to the pandemic has been haunted by the science denialism of his ultraconservative religious allies.
