Q #149: What might Donald Trump do between Election Day & Inauguration Day?

77 days. 11 weeks. That's how far between Election Day and Inauguration Day. This post is a hypothetical because I've got every finger and toe crossed that Dump loses and Biden will be sworn in at noon on January 20th, 2021. I'm operating under that assumption for the next few hundred words. I'd like to … Continue reading Q #149: What might Donald Trump do between Election Day & Inauguration Day?

“The Fifth Risk,” by Michael Lewis

My Copy: 9781324002642 (image from bn.com) I don't know what all I was expecting from this book, but I gotta say, I learned a helluva lot about certain government entities and departments... and how badly things can get screwed up during a bad transition period. The Fifth Risk is essentially about the election of Donald … Continue reading “The Fifth Risk,” by Michael Lewis

I don’t understand the seething hate conservatives seem to have for liberals…

I haven't been north of my house for shopping or anything else in several weeks, certainly not before the mask mandates for the whole state came down. I went to a dollar store about a mile north of my house this morning for coffee creamer (because the world ends in this place if there is … Continue reading I don’t understand the seething hate conservatives seem to have for liberals…

#060–What do we expect from American teenagers today?

I think this is one of those questions that's so damned simple til we really get thinking about it, kinda like the meaning of the word "freedom." What do we expect from our kids, from younger Millennials and the kids growing up today? Technically, I myself am a Millennial, but among the older ones (which … Continue reading #060–What do we expect from American teenagers today?

Work, work, work all the time…but my breaks are exhausting!

This is something I've noticed about myself when it comes to working and getting in the groove. I just want to keep going. I will avoid breaks just to make sure things go smoothly and I can finish my project when it's a doozy. Sometimes, though, I am forced to take breaks, so as long … Continue reading Work, work, work all the time…but my breaks are exhausting!

#032–Can you train your taste buds to want healthy fruits & veggies instead of processed crap?

In the Battle of the Bulge (where I attempt to vanquish the tire around my middle), this is probably the biggest question I could ask myself. My body wants good, healthy food and has no energy because I don't give it what it wants. That's mostly because of my "good intention-killing" taste buds. I've written … Continue reading #032–Can you train your taste buds to want healthy fruits & veggies instead of processed crap?

I’m being called “ma’am” a lot lately, & I don’t know what I think about that…

I've been getting ma'am-ed. I gotta admit, as someone who taught (oh so briefly) in the classroom, it wasn't unreasonable to hear the word ma'am from students. Being I was much older than they were, it could be considered normal. And since I'm in the south (Houston metro area, Texas, to be more precise), that … Continue reading I’m being called “ma’am” a lot lately, & I don’t know what I think about that…
