I've been offline the past several days because I had a hard time concentrating through the pain. I hated it because I wanted to read posts and catch up on what has been happening. Well, some interesting things helped knock my migraines and eye pain out, things I didn't expect. When I couldn't stand looking … Continue reading Getting past a week of migraines through rest, yard work, & glasses… who knew?
I hadn't paid much attention to the news the past few weeks--just too tired and focused on health issues. So imagine my surprise when I get back to it two days ago, and all the stations had breaking news about the attempted takeover and trashing of the U.S. Capitol building! Of course, the event's been … Continue reading Narcissism is a weapon, & storming the Capitol building in D.C. was a result…
While I'm a big believer in the concept of fair play, when one side writes their own rules while trying to tear the "everybody" rules to pieces, it's time for the other side to do something else. You can't explain or reason with a hungry cannibal; it's gonna tear you to pieces. REBLOG from Armchair … Continue reading Republicans Did Their Homework
My Copy: 9781982131739 (image from bn.com) Well, if you read Fear, then you can assume this is the continuation (and book-end) to what was brought up in that book. And you'd have a good reason to believe that, wrapping up just a few months before the 2020 Election. Rage is a very apropos title, namely … Continue reading Rage, by Bob Woodward
Every time I hit the quarter mark, I try to compile the lists in case you’re wondering (like I often do) the weird places my noggin likes to take me. Also, considering this odd virus situation we’re all dealing with in some way, maybe this’ll be a silly little distraction. So, to make this easy, … Continue reading A mile & a half: A recap of Q’s #126 – 150
A few hours after Biden won the election, the kid I babysit sometimes was in my yard playing with the dogs with a friend of his, and somehow just noticed the Biden sticker on the back of my car. He went "eww" and pointed at it, like he was incredulous I voted for him. I … Continue reading Q #151: Why do (most) Republicans love to say, “the Democrats are going to take your guns”?
Two words came to mind: Holy. Crap. I had this pop up on my YouTube feed. I've seen some snippets of David Pakman's show quite a bit lately, but this segment from today delves into what it means that so many millions voted for Donald Trump in this election, even more than did in 2016 … Continue reading “The Country is Screwed Whether Trump Wins or Loses.” This video chilled me… & we’re still awaiting results.
I started thinking about some great ways for stress relief when I stumbled on a video from another blogger (thank you Ms. Diane) that was in her post. And it got me thinking: things to laugh at and things to just get lost in are great stress relief. I chose a few vids that spread … Continue reading Election Day Stress Relief; or, breathing & laughter are medicine (AND exercise if you do it right)
DISCLAIMER: It has been forever since I've read Revelations all the way through (trying to get through Proverbs still... again) and some of what I'm remembering may well have to do more with cherry-picked stuff from the pulpit, or Milton, or Dante. I don't know. I'm trying to go with what little I remember. I … Continue reading Absurd Q #150: What % of Christians will vote for Trump because they believe he’s the Antichrist & will ensure Jesus’ return?
Strange how I just realized the date's tomorrow. 19 years ago. I remember telling some folks back when Dump was running for office that I'm far more afraid of my neighbors than any foreign terrorist. That goes double these days. Not my immediate neighbors, perhaps, but the area in general. I live deep in Dump … Continue reading I’m more in fear for my country now than I EVER was during 9/11.
