Itzl AlertingAs you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here.  We care!

If you'd like to be part of the Itzl Alert Network, please leave a comment asking to join, or send us a message asking to join. We'd love to have you. The bigger our network, the less likely someone will be stranded all alone.

I thought it was too cold for Schmetterlings, but I say a milky yellow one hovering over the last of my lavender blossoms today.

No picture because it was gone by the time I went in the house to get the camera and came back out.

So here's a pretty picture of one that was on my African Bush Daisy a few years ago:

Butterfly on African Bush Daisy Close

The Bush Daisy died in the snow we had that year, but the picture endures.
