When we bought the home we live in now, nine years ago, we discovered that we were responsible for paying for the street light at the end of the drive. It only cost $12.00 a month, but I was a little irritated at the thought. I've always been a Dark Sky kind of guy. I've written about that before. I like to sit on the porch with th lights off at night. L wants all of they on. I feel like I'm in a fishbowl where all of the creatures past the light can see me and I can't see them. She…Continue

Why did it happen, where did we go wrong…Continue

hi all. a difficult subj to write on, but am feeling like just want to get it "off my chest".
my last blog on this subj got a unusually high hundreds of hits. thx cyberspace for paying some attn to this crucial topic.
a lot can be written on this but am going to try to be brief.
the FBI is a critical organization for this country and its…Continue
hi all. already did a "gender studies" post for this year but we are awash in massive amounts of cyber hyperventilation barrage on the subject.
the theme for this installment is BOUNDARIES.[a]
copious links collected from my favorite "cyber haunts".
not sure what astrological signs are lining up (does anyone have any idea/ clue? open to suggestions from astrologers or wannabes!) but boy this last…Continue
hi all, 20th century icon hefner died a few wks ago.[a2] bummer! a very polarizing figure, public loved/ hated him. my feeling is that he helped launch a few revolutions but all revolutions tend to have extreme elements. its a remarkable historical coincidence/ timing with the Weinstein meltdown. my feeling, there is not a huge, unbridgeable amount of difference between these two figures, but the outcomes were vastly different.
have been piling up polyamory links over…Continue

Don’t speak to me of “healing” racism,
or “wounded souls” or the “painful hurt”
until you are willing to feel the scars
on my great-great-grandmother Laury’s back.
Don’t speak to me of “values”
or “justice” or “righting wrongs”
until you are able to feel the heartache
of my great-grandfather Graham
whose father may have been his master.
Don’t speak to me of “equity”
or “opportunity” or the…
hi all. another year, another crazy mass shooting/ murder. these seem to happen once-in-awhile. wrote a large post on the aurora batman movie shooter just a few years ago. have not been able to keep up with intermediate events. to me, anything less than 911 scale is apparently "par for the course".[g] but am going to write on this current one.
the current vegas incident is distinguished in the multiple instances and excellent quality of eyewitness videos quickly…Continue
This is a topic I should have posted about 35 years ago, when my older daughter was 14.
My daughter says the other kids get paid for their grades. She doesn’t think it’s fair that I won’t pay her for hers.
I have rules for things I pay for. I pay for services, that are of no benefit to the person performing them, but are important for my quality of life, such as paying the plumber to fix my leaky faucet. I pay for things I want and need, like groceries or new shoes. I pay for…Continue
Along with millions of people in Florida and the Southeast I am worried about Irma. The latest models show the track of the giant storm shifting to the west indicating that it will go directly up the Florida peninsula into Georgia with the potential to cause damage in Atlanta and beyond.
We are in the middle of beyond.…Continue
I've written a lot of blog posts since I first started in 2006. Less in the last couple of years, but I've countered the effort with movie reviews on IMDb, book reviews on amazon, and lots of time shooting my mouth off on Facebook and occasionally on OurSalon. The last few months I've been reading over the…Continue

Well, for 9 years now I have been between OS and OS pointing out the obvious, that nearly half of white amerikkka is made up of a large, unwashed, uneducated and entirely hateful group of pieces of white shit. Fucking Haoles as we call them on Maui.
Weigh in, oh great writers of the Interwebs, explain away how my constant near decade long attempt to explain the Dunning School was off base.
See you in VA!
It seems no matter what we do all roads lead back to the future. Like for instance: Didn’t we "duck and cover" once already? Did we not build bomb shelters already? Where are they now?
We were watching a CD (yes, even those are now Blu-Ray CD’s…sheesh.) of the Ed Sullivan Show (the early Beatles) including the "old commercials." Huh. I did'nt know Anacin could be used to fight depression…
hi all, recently came across a new video interview from a few months ago from a dutch banker named Ronald Bernard.[a1][a2] heard about it but didnt get to it/ watch it until 2 nites ago. his information is incredible, sensational, critical, and incendiary. some will label it "conspiracy theory" others would label it "suppressed/ censored truth". the interview went viral with over 20M hits but there are presumably many who didnt watch the whole thing. but 20M…Continue

For months now, I've been thinking ...oh, 99% that's pretty close, close enough anyway.
I'm not so sure now. I've been doing my googling and 'they' are saying, just that one percent makes the difference between interesting and totally awe inspiring. Life changing, even.…Continue
Like many others, I have been living in a state of constant vigilance since early November of last year.
The world I knew and trusted has been turned on its head and shaken out sideways. Keeping a weather-eye…Continue
