The Clinton emails explained quickly

I just read a piece by a guy by the name of Ken Crossland explaining what the Clinton e-mail scandal is really about. It's pretty condensed, but I'm going to condense it further.…

Another Good Book

                      One nice thing about being retired is that I have time to read.  I got this little paperback book at the Pahoa Second Hand Bookstore and paid four dollars for it.  Four!  I read it a long time ago but couldn't quite remember why I loved it.  Reading it again has been…

Dating Feedback Helps Those Deemed "Too Corporate"

BOSTON, Mass.  Meyer Folsom is an earnest young man with a buttoned-down demeanor that is not a handicap in his chosen profession of the law.  “I like to think I’m serious in a ‘fun’ sort of way,” he says.  “I take a lot of ribbing for it, but I come back with snappy one-liners whenever somebody tells a patently offensive lawyer joke and runs the risk of getting mulcted in damages,” he says with a smile.…

Artist or Hack?: Bob Ross's "The Joy of Painting", On PBS

I don't remember exactly how I stumbled upon this program.

I was going through a particularly difficult period.  I found this guy's tone and manner, as well as his style and finished work, to be utterly fascinating and theraputic. 

I learned that his 'wet on wet' technique was what gave him the ability to paint without brushes or use brushes that you'd find in a hardware store as well as an art shop....And create ' a, work of art' within the 30 minutes allotted for each of his…

the hell and humiliation of being a packrat/borderline hoarder and shopping for a new housecleaner. the great cleaning debacle of 2016. Part one, apparently.

okay, so we have established that i am not a tidy person. not even remotely tidy. i tried to read that book about tidying up, the one by that japanese woman, and i pretty much just wanted to tell her to stick it where the moon doesn't shine. which wasn't a very charitable thought. i'm a slob. i have always been a slob. and i come by it honestly. both of my parents, when they died -- which they did in different venues since they were divorced -- when they died, their respective families…

Sexual Predators, lying justUS Thomas vs. lyin' pompoUS Trump

What's one difference between u.s. Supreme Court Republican Justice Thomas and u.s prejudicial Republican candidate Trump?

One's color. One is colored with pigment from the inside, one is pigmented from the outside.

Another difference is each's response to sexual allegations regarding each's history of professional improprieties when not as well social improprieties:

Thomas:  " These claims never happened."

 Trump:  " These events never happened."

Two thirds of World’s Vertebrate Wildlife Will Be Lost by 2020

Two thirds of World’s Vertebrate Wildlife Will Be Lost by 2020:  A new report from the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) predicts that by the end of the decade, 67% of all vertebrate wildlife will be lost.  Perhaps, but it just seems impossible that so many could be lost when apps like Google Maps and Waze are everywhere.…

organic gardening going into winter

Asia Rein is off to her final practice, dress rehearsal actually, and you should see the costume. Purple and sexy, bought from some professional dance troupe back east for what seems to me an exorbitant price, fronted by the magnificent and magical instructor, Miss Zaina (Zy-ee-na). It's belly dancing. Asia just turned 55 and is pretty damned hot in that outfit, and out of it. …

ALL MY FRIENDS ARE CRAZY

I guess that means sane people don't care to hang out with me.  Sigh.

I just got a call from the Philippines, where my first handyman/RenoRob went some years ago to live with a cam-girl he met on-line...and where his disability pension goes further.  (Despite my fears, the coupling seems to be lasting.)  Anyway, he wanted to know if I'd heard about Planet X and its imminent disruption of the solar system and what my opinion might be.  SOUNDS CRAZY, I said.  I DON'T DIG CONSPIRACY…
