My Wife, she up n’ left me

 Yes folks, Wife Patti is not all sugar and spice. Two times a year she ignores my desires and just leaves me, stranded, alone, frightened. Anyone who knows anything about me realizes I am a homebody. Give me my dogs, gardens, internet and television and simply leave me alone. I hate vacations, and after 50 […]

This and That

Am I some sort of environmentalist? Well, yeah, sort of. In fact, when it comes to doing laundry, I have done quite a  bit of research and trial and error. Yes, in the Holdraker house I do the laundry. I also order all supplies for the home, including dog and cat food and medicines, paper […]

Trials and Tribulations

On Thursday’s Trump received 34 Guilty verdicts on his efforts to disguise a hush money payment made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election.   Do I agree with the whole Trump trial on the charges, NO! But I also do not agree with the way the Hunter Biden charges were handled. […]

I love my dogs and tolerate my cats 

The Holdraker household is full of...fur. It’s everywhere -  and numerous air filters have little effect on its spread. This is the result of three Cavalier King Charles dogs constantly shedding. No amount of brushing deters the gathering of tumbleweed-like fur balls circulating around the house. Then there are the brother and sister cats my […]

Damned if you do, Damned if you don't scenario

Most of the ‘baby boomer’ generation look at protesting students and others with a bit of scorn. After all, do these kids really know what they are protesting about? Do they know the history behind the creation of Israel after WWII? Do they have a real concept of the Holocaust? Do they understand the constant […]

...and here is how it is going to play out

The six month countdown has begun. It seems like an eternity that President Biden and former President Trump became their Party favorites for this November’s crucial election. Going by previous playbooks I can foretell just how this is going to play out. Trump and his Red Hatters will dominate the news and early polls. Republicans […]

It’s Time to Trash Tenney

Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, representing the newly formed 24th Congressional District (that’s us) needs to be heaped on the political trash heap. Let me count the ways. She has purchased ads running on network affiliate television stations during prime local news broadcasts - among the most expensive airtime to purchase.  I certainly don’t mind a congress […]

Ah, warfare, it is changing quickly

As the troops stormed the beaches, low-flying air support was seen overhead. Gun emplacements garnered the share of victims as the number of fatalities grew. Meanwhile carpet bombing slaughtered innocents over the populous city and fires raged seemingly everywhere. Wait, stop, that was wars, battles of the past. Today’s prime video shows more distinct methods […]

Believe it or not...

Yes folks, there are still many people who do not believe in climate change. There are those who point out that in 1922 there was a record high temperature on December 14th, that tied the record  this past December 14th, therefore climate change theorists have no idea what they are talking about. According to the […]
