Posting will be light today as I am abed with an annoying case of Vasco Da Gama’s revenge. I’m going to rest to see if that relieves the gastric distress. (I know, TMI).
I will thus present a truncated Hili for today and see if I can finish today’s other posts from a supine position, but first I must rest.
Many thanks to Matthew for doing the Hili posts while I was cruising off Europe, Morocco, and the Canaries!
Here’s today’s Hili; Andrzej and Her Highness are having a heavy philosophical discussion in the orchard:
Hili: There are many questions we do not know the answers to.A: But we can always ignore them.
Hili: Jest wiele pytań, na które nie znamy odpowiedzi.Ja: Ale zawsze możemy je zignorować.
Caption: These are the most beautiful days in our garden.
(In Polish: “To najpiękniejsze dni w naszym ogrodzie.”
And a photo of Karolina from Kyiv, who still cannot resist grabbing the cats:
Caption: Where is the girl in bedroom slippers running to? She is running to give a hug to a cat who is not convinced he wants petting so early in the day.
From Catspotting Society:
A tweet from Titania, who’s unleashed a spate of tweets based on Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter. Here’s the first:
If Elon Musk buys Twitter, there’s a real danger that people will start saying whatever they want, whenever they want.
That’s exactly how Nazi Germany started.https://t.co/fGlWGmnlCO

Tweets from Matthew. Nice letter!:
When I was speaking at UC Santa Cruz I rented a car to get around, but it was in husband's name/credit card (bc I don't drive); in order to reimburse me the University requested a letter from him; this is what he produced pic.twitter.com/u9lSTyZv4B

Ross Douthat makes the classical “correlation is not causation” error:
