Black people...yuk

Okay, for today’s lesson we will look at Black People. First off, you will probably admit most of you white folk have had little, or no real contact with the Black population. Basically, you grew up in lilly white neighborhoods where the outsider was either the new Italian family, or perhaps some kind of neighbor […]

My Zu Zu

A dozen years ago she came into my life. I saw a Cavalier King Charles dog and immediately fell in love with the breed. Zu Zu, named after the little girl in the Movie “It’s A Wonderful Life” soon became attached to my side. Time goes on and the girl was obviously aging. Grey fur  […]

Trump gets thumped again

Just how much evidence, truth, do Trump loyalists/followers really need? After Thursday night’s House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol, the eighth hearing detailed the 187 minutes of what the former President was doing during the breach of the Capitol. Trump was earnestly watching FOX News TV, which was detailing […]

Aaarrg! Health...the fight to stay alive

Regular readers know I am lucky to be alive. I got whacked by a car many years ago, resulting in two serious neck surgeries, lots of recovery pain and a metal bridge in my neck. Then, there was that time they accidentally overdosed me while at the hospital; I still have semi-vivid memories of being […]

Remember Adolph Hitler and the Jewish conspiracy? The fact that millions of Germans came to believe in the “Superior Race” theory during decades of upheaval in society was no real shock. It has happened in the past and still happens today. Conspiracy theories are a fact of life. The chances are you are a type […]

Planning, playing for the long game

People, voters, really have no clue about planning, playing for the long game in politics and it shows in their voting. That goes for both sides of the aisle, but especially Democrats. Democrats really have no long term  strategists and have never seen beyond today, the now. When it came to President Biden’s “Build Back […]

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy

Back to controversy Going way overboard is Republican Senate candidate Eric Greitens’s campaign video urging voters to go “hunting” for members of his own party,  while brandishing a gun, violated their rules against incitement and hateful conduct. The ad shows the former Missouri governor standing outside a home while holding a shotgun and surrounded by […]

When much is too much

How much money do you need? If you were a multi-millionaire, would you be satisfied? If you had more money than you could spend in a lifetime, would you keep seeking more? If you won the big lottery, would you be eternally happy? At what point would you sacrifice your morals for more cash? Ahh, […]

So, following the Jan. 6th committee stuff, any mind changes?

So, who really watched the first installment of the Jan. 6th committee prime-time hearing on Thursday? I’ll give you a hint, probably not the people who should have, the people who undeniably believed the ‘Big Lie” without question, handed down by their god Trump? Even before the November 2020 election, Republican pollsters knew the outcome, […]

The Garage

We have been living in this house going on eleven years. We have spent big bucks remodeling, improving and making the home and property the perfect setting for this elderly couple. One big task lay ahead. The two car garage needed everything over the years. We had it dry walled, new garage doors installed, updated […]
