December Eleventh Photo a Day ~ The Tourist Trap

The Tourist Trap

Here, at the top of a local mountain, is one of the favored spots to take family and other visitors to our area.

I jokingly call it the Tourist Trap, and tend not to mention details beforehand, just saying: “Thought you might like to see the…

Rachel Maddow Poses the Question of the Year

Although this video is slightly dated, it is the essence of the single most important question/issue of our time.

We are at the end of Trump’s first year in office and despite all that has been reported about him, his policies, plans, persona, and fitness, 35% of the voting public have been virtually unshakeable in their support of an individual who by all standards should never have been elected president and by current measure of political and social turns of events should be forced…

I Finally Understand the True Meaning of Midwinter Solstice

 

As I lay in bed last night I understood for the first time the meaning of winter solstice; the reason for prehistoric astronomic calendars.  I understood why Saturnalia (Yule, Midwinter) got usurped by Christmas.

It’s been a hell of a week.

This past Monday I came down with some intestinal affliction that had me sleeping…

Roy Moore Says Maybe Putin Right to Condemn Gay Marriage

Roy Moore Says Maybe Putin Right to Condemn Gay Marriage:  In a recent interview with the Guardian, controversial Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore told a reporter that he thinks “maybe Putin is right” to condemn same-sex marriage.  I hate to say it, but Judge Moore does have a point.  I mean, how’s a public servant supposed to have time to chase underage girls around the malls if all his time is taken up marrying a bunch of gays?…

Sometimes When We Touch

“Flirting is NOT an invitation to touching. You know what is an invitation to touching? Being invited to touch ... with words.”

Some great Christmas music

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=mpJlCFNwaUU

Nutcracker medley, Straight No Chaser (a famous a capella group) and Joshua Bell (a famous classical violinist)

The playing on this is insane. 

There was a famous experiment done involving Bell in 2007, covered by the Washington Post. I described it in a comment a few years ago:



In 2007, this world-famous violinist went into a Virginia suburban Metro station…

December Ninth Photo a Day ~ Sun Through Smoke

My heart goes out to all affected by the wildfires in California, those who are still recovering from prior fires and those who are actively dealing with them today.







These are unedited photos from when the fires were up here in Oregon. I didn’t look or focus, just pointed the…

The Moldy Lemon

When my husband came home from work and saw me passed out on the couch the other day he immediately knew the culprit, and that it must be hidden somewhere near.

But where?

This could be a story about addiction but it's not.

It could be a story about poverty as that was the origin of my issue, but, no, it's not - not this…

The "Rock" Test (for all of you wannabe sexual predators out there)

Image result for the rock johnson

I've been reading some of the male  "denizens" here making "non-excuse" excuses, rationalizations for unacceptable behavior and tossing strawmen around so much I expect to see Dorthy and Flying Monkeys, FFS!

One even expressed that there weren't any "rules" for acceptable male behavior which made me blurt out, "You NEED…

XxXxxXxX/xxxXxXxx/

What are all those X's in the title? They're a rhythm.

Try clapping that rhythm and see if you can identify it. Try it twice through, repeated exactly. The capital X's are accented, but each x takes the same length of time. They represent eighth notes in a four quarter measure. 

If you're having trouble counting them, there are eight X's per measure. In the first, accents are on 1, 3, 6, and 8. In the second, 4 and 6. This is really syncopated: Natural accents are on odd…
