Trust me, you do not want to be me

Anyone who is a regular reader knows I am not at the top of the health meter. So far I have survived some 43 operations affecting just about every part of my body. Some of the operations were easy peasy, some had me laid up for months. I even boast two different operations by two […]

Dewey

As many know, I lost Zu Zu, my first Cavalier King Charles dog, most likely to a heart attack. She was a beautiful 12 year-old dog  and I knew her time with me was short. She had a seizure several weeks before she died and I sat up with her on the floor for hours […]

Democracy, who cares?

There are clear and present dangers looming ahead for Democracy in this nation. You want proof in no uncertain terms? Let’s start with Donald Trump and his obvious denial of losing the 2020 election. In doing so Trump and his pabulum followers have promoted and continued to spread not only lies, but conspiracy crap that […]

These are somebody's candidates?

I will now go through a list of candidates from across the country and ask the question: “What? Are you insane?” Case in point: A Republican candidate for Congress in western New York said in a radio interview that U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland “should be executed” for authorizing a search former President Donald Trump’s […]

The Climate Change thing

Shucks, all this time, all we really needed was a flood of floods throughout the world, a whole bunch of forest fires in the West and Europe, along with crops withering on the vine worldwide. Looks like even many Republicans now believe there is something to this ‘climate change thing’. Thanks to forward-looking Democrats, the […]

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 […]

Explaining Conspiracy Theories

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 […]
