So for the next 565 days we must endure election banter… I know there are political wonks who just love this stuff. These folks live for election years and all the banter, all the back and forth, all the ins and outs. Still – the very thought of it all makes… Read full post »
Spring always takes me to a happy place in my mind. When those first buds start to show on the trees, I’m sitting by Bowery Run on Pumping Station Road fishing for Trout. No matter where I am in the world, in my mind, I’m sitting by that creek, fishing pole… Read full post »
I will be the first to admit to loving a good mystery. I love all the twists and turns a really good story takes, and I love it when I’m challenged to find the answers.
I will also admit that I’m prone to loving a really well thought-out conspiracy. You know… Read full post »
When was it when we started losing respect for the Office of President? I don’t mean respect for the individual who is President, I mean for the Office itself?
Time was when the Office was held with some sort of idealistic sense of wonder and respect. When I was a… Read full post »
I’ve waited as long as I could for this change we can all believe in. Well, I’m actually still waiting; I’m just becoming more of a realist in my understanding that it’s not going to be forthcoming anytime soon.
I’ve come to the conclusion that Barack Obama doesn&… Read full post »
If I hear Robin Roberts say one more time that she cleared the questions with Chris Brown, and she doesn’t understand why he exploded after the interview, and that: “she’s pulling for the guy” I’m going to throw a chair through a window.
Do I think Chris Brown should hav… Read full post »
A Muslim woman, Irum Abassi, was escorted by a TSA agent off a Southwest Flight from San Diego, CA to San Jose, CA on Sunday. According to Southwest Airlines, she “"was asked to deplane so we could talk to her regarding behavior observed prior to takeoff." This behavior prior to tak… Read full post »
I discovered something quite wonderful while I was on vacation. My life is good, and I just need to let myself be happy. I’m not sure why I had to leave my home and my surroundings to understand this, but the important thing is I finally get it.
There is so… Read full post »
Friday night I plugged my Nook Color in to charge it, and I noticed the color red on the charger. Now, I’ve seen yellow, which means it’s charging, and green, which means it’s done charging, but, I’ve never seen the color red before. Somehow, I knew it was not a go… Read full post »
Susan and I were talking at dinner about how the talking heads on FOX this afternoon were trashing Michael Moore for speaking truth to power in Wisconsin. I was telling Susan that the folks on FOX were calling him a radical progressive liberal, who is inciting the youn… Read full post »
One knows when they travel on an airplane, the possibility of catching a cold or anything anyone on the plane has is there. As soon as you sit down and you hear others sneezing and coughing, you just know. No matter how many of those airborne tablets you take, you just… Read full post »
After dinner last evening we had on the local news station, and for some reason just left the station on. Susan was reading and I wasn’t really paying that much attention. When I finally realized what all I had seen I felt so relieved. No need to worry about our economy,… Read full post »
I think we should send my Mother to Washington DC. I say we just let her sit behind that desk in the middle of the House of Representatives, and let her get some work done. She wouldn’t even need that big-ass gavel.
When I was a child I distinctly remember breaking a… Read full post »
In your life you will have; Friends of the Heart and Friends of the Road. I was never really sure what that meant. Susan tried to explain it to me, but I’m a person who has to experience something to really understand it.
We just spent five days in Texas… Read full post »
It's time to take a break from the Union-busting, abortion stopping, Republican-ruling world and do something fun. Those of you who have followed me on BlogSpot know that every Oscar season I ask you to stop what you’re doing for a few minutes and think of your favorite movies. Not… Read full post »
The debate about religion and homosexuality continues in my life. It’s not a debate I want, however, it seems to be a constant little nagging in my life.
I was told that I may not like what a certain pastor may say but what he preaches is directly from the Bible… … Read full post »
Last July, before my Father passed, he asked me if I would try and find some answers for him about his family. I think he knew he was coming to the end of his life, and for some reason, it was important to him that he know these things. I wasn’t… Read full post »
“ I wish I was in the land of cotton, old times there are not forgotten, look away, look away, look away Dixie Land.”
On Saturday, people, (I’m thinking mainly white people), dressed in their antebellum best, will raise the Rebel Flag, fire a canon, sing “Dixie” a… Read full post »
Dear Mr. President,
I'm not sure if you remember me or not. I wrote you right after you picked Rev. Rick Warren to pray at your inauguration. Remember, I asked for my $50.00 contribution to your campaign back?
I never heard from you about that refund, so I wrote again,… Read full post »
Over the weekend, I said goodbye to a friend of over 30 years because of religion. It's sad, it's tragic, and it's just such a waste.
This whole Religion thing! I've tried to understand, I've tried to ignore, I've tried to just pretend it doesn't matter, but, you know what? It… Read full post »
When I was a child, President Lincoln's Birthday was celebrated with honor in our home. It was also the one day I knew my Mother would allow me to miss school. This was before it was a 3-day weekend thing where every store in town had a “President's Day Sale.” President… Read full post »
I was under the impression that the newly elected Republicans were going to give us jobs, jobs, jobs. This was their number one issue, this was what the Country needed. John Boehner and his big gavel promised us..
Imagine my surprise when John Boehner made his first priority:

I woke up this morning to the news that I can no longer enjoy Chick-Fil-A. Susan informed me that we are boycotting Chick-Fil-A for their anti-gay beliefs...
Now, I can endure a lot of things. Tell me I can't shop at Target because of their anti-gay beliefs, I'm okay with… Read full post »
Do you remember the first time you ever thought of going to Disneyland? Well, maybe you never have, but, growing up in a small town in rural Pennsylvania, I thought often of Mickey and Minnie and this far away place called Disneyland.
In the 1950's, The Wonderful World of Disney… Read full post »
