Needing Help from the Freelancers: I’m drowning in app options for task managing / productivity

I'm not exactly a luddite, but I'm one of those folks whom the weekly/ monthly planner book, pencil and highlighters have generally done a good enough job for decades. I hate having to sign in through services like Google (which has 30 things I don't care about and maybe 1 or 2 I need, but … Continue reading Needing Help from the Freelancers: I’m drowning in app options for task managing / productivity

Q #151: Why do (most) Republicans love to say, “the Democrats are going to take your guns”?

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”?

Absurd Q #150: What % of Christians will vote for Trump because they believe he’s the Antichrist & will ensure Jesus’ return?

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?

What do Foreign Correspondents Think of the U.S.? (video from The New Yorker)

This just happened to pop up in my YouTube feed this morning and I had to watch it several times. It's what the title says, and it's enlightening and disheartening all at the same time. Journalists are not the freaking enemy of the people. They are OF the people more than the damned politicians, for … Continue reading What do Foreign Correspondents Think of the U.S.?

Blitz Q #143: Who would Republicans put forward as their presidential candidate for 2020 if they could?

I know Dump is the candidate. He's the incumbent; you just don't derail the train (even if some believe otherwise) while the party you support is already in office. It's also something that just doesn't happen: when you can get two terms, you don't just up and say nope. Well, wait--LBJ did. With all the … Continue reading Blitz Q #143: Who would Republicans put forward as their presidential candidate for 2020 if they could?

Absurd Q #140: Are people REQUIRED to play golf when they become president?

It hit me this morning after reading someone's blog post from yesterday about Dump, pissed off about his cancelled NJ trip. I mean, I can see Dump liking golf... he can walk around as slow as he wants and it's a very stereotypical "rich guy" thing to do. But it hit me--I think every president … Continue reading Absurd Q #140: Are people REQUIRED to play golf when they become president?

Absurd Q#136: What the Hell was Humpty Dumpty supposed to be?

This was bugging me when I stumbled on a Ricky Gervais snippet during lunch. I love his attempts to figure out what's going on with the story (starts at 3:30): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfP8nQ6i5Bo And of course as he tries to figure it out, all the other questions that have come to me over the years have cropped … Continue reading Absurd Q#136: What the Hell was Humpty Dumpty supposed to be?
