Officer Derek Chauvin has been found guilty on all charges. This is not a win for anyone, but a loss for many. It is rare for an officer to be found guilty of murdering someone. Officers get a lot of leeway in how they handle a situation. We have seen way to often, in my… Continue reading Guilty on All Charges for the Killing of George Floyd
When we are young, we have not really a care in the world. In most instances, our family provides a roof over our heads, food on our plates, clothes on our backs. Hopefully, there is also plenty of love to go around. As we grow older, we become a little more aware of the world… Continue reading Ignorance is Bliss
I, like so many, want to have a very lush green yard. One in which I can walk around barefoot, where it is soft and cool on the feet, and where one doesn’t sink down in the mud pit. When we built the house, we knew the front yard would be sod, and we could… Continue reading When to Weed and Feed
I had a different post for this evening, and then life happened, or is happening. Be back tomorrow, hopefully finishing what I started today. Thank you life (not!).

There are many others out there. The jist is look how great we are, we care about hunger, the environment, workers, or… Continue reading Corporations and Doing the Right Thing
Today is the kind of day to just take a moment. Sit on the front porch with the dog beside you. The sun just starting to set. Still warm enough to pause and enjoy both the sunset, and the beautiful tulips quite abloom. And that is just what I’m doing. Hope you are able to… Continue reading Take A Moment
One day last week, I felt it was time to go back to watching some news. It wasn’t a feeling of having to go back right then, just a feeling it was time and I’d start back on Monday, today. For the time being, I’m only going to devote an hour a day to watching… Continue reading Back to the News
When using Fitness or Noom apps, and possibly others, they allow one to add extra exercise activities to the calorie burning count for the day. Do some yard work, add it in. Do some house cleaning, add it it. Do some time on the treadmill, add it. However, have you ever noticed neither cooking, nor… Continue reading Cooking/Baking is Exercise!
