As a person living in the United States, watching our Democracy, our Republic, our way of life slipping exponentially away, with all of our politicians letting it occur, I’ve been wondering what is your red line? What is it this administration will do that you personally will say enough is enough, and will speak out… Continue reading What is Your Red Line?
Today I was having a great conversation with a neighbor, someone I call friend. We were catching up while practicing social distancing. It has been a long while since we’ve had such a long conversation, although short in comparison of past conversations. Our conversation included talking about work, business, our kids, school, pets, politics, and… Continue reading Telling on Myself
Vote Biden/Harris. Vote Democrat up and down the ballot. Vote!
Simply stated, three things add aggravation, discord, and drama where it isn’t needed at the Federal level of government. None of these three things are in the U.S. Constitution, therefore, they must go. The filibuster allows the minority party in the Senate to essentially hold up the business of the Senate. It has been used… Continue reading Filibuster, Presidential Executive Orders, and Signing Statements Have All Got to Go
This evening as we were walking the dog, we got the call we knew was inevitable. It was the high school calling to say students would be in class on Monday, then shift to e-learning for the remainder of the week.

I’m furious at the story which broke about Governor DeSantis telling Florida school boards they couldn’t do virtual learning without the permission of their… Continue reading Ack! Can’t Settle My Mind with the Madness Around Me
It took over two years to finally put words to paper. It took almost a year to finish those words. It took almost two months to muster the courage to share those words. Writing this blog has been relatively easy compared to writing my first manuscript in the sense I’m not writing my blog for… Continue reading I’ve Put It Out There, Finally
The trumplicans are scared. The Republicans have been scared for years. Old white men are scared. White people are scared. They are scared of losing power. They are scared the new majority will treat them the way they have treated the minority. They see the writing on the wall and are doing anything, and everything,… Continue reading We Must Vote
On our way to a farm this past weekend to buy apples, we drove by a church. What caught my eye about the church, was the vegetable garden growing on its grounds. A sign in front of the church had also caught my eye. The sign was advertising a drive by food pantry. I began… Continue reading Feeding Those in Need with the Help of Our Faith Members
