Sundown at the old Gallagher place

Lounging out back around the firepit. Burning some amazing incense. The two hens, "Camilla" and "Nigella", are winding down and getting ready to tuck themselves into their coop for the night. Our neighbor's white peacock "Sebastian" is perched on the peak of our roof like a weathervane. The sunset ia lighting him up, seeming from inside; he doesn't look real, he's all golden. At this particular moment, life is good.

Sarko joins the chorus: multiculturalism has failed

More interesting doings in Europe. Sarko joins the growing chorus (Merkel, Cameron) of leaders admitting that Europe's multiculturalism experiment has failed. A sea change, or just typical political maneuvering for advantage with an increasingly xenophobic polis?
