If you have family that donated to Trump online in the past few months, tell ’em to double check their accounts…

There's low, and then there's a limbo bar so close to the ground an ant can't get under it. This is THAT low. Now, I can't stand the Dump. Not a surprise. And I'm sure there's a ton of folks that are scoffing and going "whelp, you get conned by a con-man and you were … Continue reading If you have family that donated to Trump online in the past few months, tell ’em to double check their accounts…

I Swore I Would Stop Shopping Online for a While… But My Parakeets Need Boyfriends, Among Other Things…

Oh man. I thought I had it made with my cranky parrot's old cage. I had to put a fat dowel rod down to block the one area my craftiest parakeet could exploit to get out, but otherwise it was nice, big, and roomy. But if I add two more parakeets, it's gonna get crowded. … Continue reading I Swore I Would Stop Shopping Online for a While… But My Parakeets Need Boyfriends, Among Other Things…

Can we say the Texas Government is batting 0 for 2 against mother nature in 2021?

I thought something was up when I was at the grocery store on Sunday. Probably only half the folks in there were wearing a mask. I should've known that was a sign of things to come. Nobody hassling them, nobody paying attention. But I sure noticed it. People were happy to be out and about, … Continue reading Can we say the Texas Government is batting 0 for 2 against mother nature in 2021?

“Don’t Rock The Boat”: a phrase & a metaphorical story about “crazy-makers” we all know…

I stumbled on this piece of brilliance from a few years ago today. Not sure if this is the original writer or it's an oft-passed along piece, but after my question about "being the bigger person" a few days ago, this made my eyes bulge in surprise, because I'm sure there are a ton of … Continue reading “Don’t Rock The Boat”: a phrase & a metaphorical story about “crazy-makers” we all know…

Thanksgiving 2020 plans; or, it’s a Thursday that happens to feature turkey or ham…

I'm checking the weather report about tomorrow. My dogs had some "pup-kin pie," the filling that didn't fit in the pie shells that I poured into Pyrex bowls to cook separately (they were so happy). I'd planned to make baked potatoes for over a week and had some veggies I needed to use up, so … Continue reading Thanksgiving 2020 plans; or, it’s a Thursday that happens to feature turkey or ham…

A Very Stable Genius: Donald J. Trumps testing of America, by Philip Rucker & Carol Leonnig

My Copy: 9781984877499 (image from bn.com) This one was a tough read. Not that it was overly complicated or anything, but it was like reading Fear all over again, but with a broader view. Sifting through the catastrophuck that is the Trump Administration a second time around (and I haven't even gotten to Rage yet)... … Continue reading A Very Stable Genius: Donald J. Trumps testing of America, by Philip Rucker & Carol Leonnig

A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice & Fire #5), by George R. R. Martin

My Copy: 9780553582017 (image from bn.com) I can't believe it took me over two months to finish this book. I actually read the last two hundred pages last night because I was so eager to get through them and I couldn't sleep, so why not? The action increased its pace nicely with some quiet moments … Continue reading A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice & Fire #5), by George R. R. Martin

Too Much & Never Enough: How my family created the world’s most dangerous man, by Mary L. Trump, Ph.D.

My Copy: 9781982141462 (image from bn.com) I started reading this yesterday when I had nothing else to do during a power outage (as it's been hot as hell thanks to that hurricane passing by). I finished it a couple of hours ago, and had to think about how strange it was to read this book. … Continue reading Too Much & Never Enough: How my family created the world’s most dangerous man, by Mary L. Trump, Ph.D.

The Pet Conundrum; or, learning patience while trying to move on & find another little friend or two…

I should be looking at online jobs right now. I should've been working on my self-education opportunities, watching lectures, or doing Masterclass activities this week. Instead, I just keep thinking about Buddy and what I'll do now for a new pet or two, because it feels strange without that squawker. I've got two dogs and … Continue reading The Pet Conundrum; or, learning patience while trying to move on & find another little friend or two…
