Partial solar eclipse August 21, 2017

Crescent sun reflected on my shed.

Crescent sun reflected on the house.

Crescent sun reflected on a stop sign.

Peeking through a hole in the clouds.

Crescent sunbeams coming through leaves onto my patio.

Crescent sunbeams through holes in a canna leaf.

Crescent sunbeams through a colander.

I eclipsed the eclipse with my fingertip, trying to show how odd the clouds looked- probably due to the strange shadow effects of a partial eclipse..
It didn't work that well.

The videos were made by recording the eclipse's reflection in a puddle in my yard. Yes, there are actual puddles of water in my yard! That's almost as rare as an eclipse!

I spent more time just observing it in every way I could think of. Pics and videos were almost afterthoughts. I do enjoy this sort of thing.

Police lead to police states

You can't have a police state without police. And, if you allow government to have police, you're probably going to find yourself in a police state sooner or later.

Unless you can find a real way to directly, and tightly, control (and "police") the police. (No one has ever managed to find that unicorn yet.)

Now, I suppose if you're a coward and you want to live in a police state, you're fine with that.

But if you don't want to live in a police state, but you still want cops around, for some incomprehensible reason, you are going to be disappointed. Eventually, if not sooner.

It's a path you are either choosing, or your family, friends, and neighbors are choosing for you. At least speak up in opposition.
