It’s New Year’s Eve. I will, hopefully, be in the midst of pleasant dreams when the ball drops. We’re driving tomorrow to a place where it is warmer than here.
To everyone – even Doc Vega, maybe, especially Doc Vega – I wish a Happy New Year. May you all find health, happiness and prosperity. Especially may you find what you need, and get what you need.
My cousin called
Her voice sounded as sweet
The lilt in her always upbeat voice
Was so familiar
Her teeth clacked.
She’s my oldest paternal cousin
We’re disappearing quickly now…Continue
Christian Writer Claims Jesus Doesn’t Want You To Masturbate: Writing for the Christian Post, Erin Davis cautions readers that while Scripture never mentions masturbation specifically, Jesus neither wants or approves of people masturbating. Is it just me, or does it seem like a lot of these so-called “Christian leaders” seem to spend an inordinate amount of their time thinking about the sex lives of strangers? That said, I’m sure some would…Continue
Cutting the Cord
How is discontinuing cable or satellite service like being born? In both cases we get what we are given, but the similarity ends there. What we get through the umbilical cord is what we need, and what we get from the cable or satellite provider is what they want us to have, not necessarily what we want or need.
Remember the security of the womb? Probably not, but you can imagine that it was warm and cozy. Leaving was not something you chose. You were…Continue
“Trump could send a tweet in the middle of the night pissing off Kim Jong Un. And the next morning we wake up to a world on the brink of war,” one seasoned diplomat told BuzzFeed News.
That observation came…Continue
Russian Comedians Prank UN Ambassador Nikki Haley: In yet another embarrassment for the current administration, a couple of Russian comedians posed as Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and engaged Trump UN Ambassador Nikki Haley in a general political conversation before pranking her into a detailed discussion about the dire situation in a totally bogus country they called Binomo. And while some may find this kind of ignorance from our UN…Continue

Yeah... the fabulously, fabulous #metoo movement...
...dear to the hearts of most female Hollywood celebrities, Democratic politicians and pro-feminist talk show hosts...
Being the subject of sexual assault and abuse I certainly am a proponent of bringing male (and in a VERY few cases, female) abuse into the light of…Continue
Many's the time I've asserted that Orange Julius Caesar is just a creeping dictator. Or, creepy dictator. Well, now he admits it:
I know the details of taxes better than anybody. Better than the greatest C.P.A. I know the…Continue
Sometime in the late 1970s, we replaced our stacked washer/dryer which we had bought for the mobile home we lived in, with two appliances. I subscribed to Consumer Reports than and read about different brands of washing machines and clothes dryers. From that reading we bought appliances from two different companies. It’s been a long time now, and it doesn’t matter, but I can’t remember who made them.
Those two appliances were moved to a different location where we had a home with…Continue
Trump Tweets We Need More Global Warming: With much of the US inundated with snow and frigid weather, President Trump took to Twitter to say he thinks America could benefit from “a little bit of that good old global warming.” Now let’s see, if I’m correct here - his Mar-a-Lago estate is only just a few feet above sea level. Talk about “be careful about what you wish for!” If I were him, I think I’d make damn sure that top floor Trump Tower penthouse…Continue
I have spent today getting my ASUS computer working again and trying to clear files out of my google drive so that I can get the pictures off of my phone again. Computers take way too long to do this maintenance stuff. I also downloaded an anti-virus program after reading several articles on which one is best. I chose the Avast free anti-virus software.
As I wait for my files to download from google I have paid some…Continue
In 1947 a strange succession of events went on simultaneously in that year that led to the modern virtual police state we know today. As Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier in his Bell X-1 rocket plane just weeks after the tragic death of Jeffrey de Havilland in an aircraft he named the DH-108 Swallow attempting the same feat,…Continue
