Several of my friends have managed to stay away from social media. No Facebook, no Twitter, no TikTok, no Instagram. They didn’t, and still don’t know what the fascination is with these platforms and why everyone spends so much time on them. Throughout the years I have extolled the benefits of social media. How it… Continue reading Goodbye Twitter? Goodbye Facebook? Goodbye Social Media?
There were three bananas in the pantry I had set aside to ripen. I had seen a recipe that had intrigued me that required several ripened bananas. They were at just the right stage to be used. Collecting my cooking magazines, I went in search of the recipe I had wanted. I looked through magazine… Continue reading Second Choice Recipe
Sunday was a spectacular day. My youngest became a world champion as a musician with a record score of 99.175 (corrected score) with their band group. The screams that erupted by the students was equally matched by the parents. It was so loud we actually only heard the 99, had to get the final score… Continue reading Attraction and Identity

I know they are probably great for property and other taxes, but at what cost? They are just hideous monstrosities to look at driving by them. No visual appeal whatsoever.

It started on Thursday evenings and carried through into Sunday evening. All are doing well, thankfully. It was good… Continue reading A Little Me Time
Melania Trump made this question famous when, as First Lady, she wore a jacket emblazoned with the words while visiting camps of imprisoned children. Afterwards, she had several explanations as to why she wore this particular saying. Regardless of her rationale, it seems to have become the mantra of the Republican Party. They really don’t… Continue reading “I Really Don’t Care, Do U”
Our youngest son came to visit this past weekend. When we found out, one of the things we asked was if he had any special requests for a family dinner Saturday night. His reply was pesto chicken, and apple pie or apple crisp. I asked if he had a preference and he said to surprise… Continue reading As Simple as Apple Pie
Sorry as there will be no post today due to some major work projects.
Mitch McConnell, based upon past experience of his behavior, essentially said this week that he would not forward a Supreme Court nominee of President Biden’s if the Republicans take back the Senate in November. By doing so, he has taken control not only of the Senate, which is one of the consequences of elections, but… Continue reading Acting with Impunity
