Masks, Insurrectionists, Space Telescope and Rodent Whiskers

We talked about the cimate changing and a "tipping point" that happened long ago.  Another climatic "tipping point" could happen again.

Pickles of the North talked about masks buying face masks. She talked about legitimate and counterfeit face masks being sold. She urged everyone to check out the following links:

We talked about a pair of parents who brought their 14 year old son to the January 6, 2021, insurrection, and about the head of the so-called "Oath Keepers" who has been indicted on a serious charge for his part in the insurrection.

We talked about the Next Generation Space Telescope unfolding successfully.

We talked about the discovery that rodents have hairs that can detect the body heat of larger animals which alerts the small mammals to possible predators.
