At our old house, we had a sprinkler system installed to water the trees and the little bit of grass we had. We did live in the high desert where the precipitation was just about zero most of the year. All of us, even people who hated rain, were glad to see the monsoon season… Continue reading Sprinkler Head
My new glasses came in this past week. Well, the replacement pair of glasses. The eye doctor somehow got my prescription wrong, by a lot, the first time. What I have found, unfortunately, is the new glasses do not let me see far away. When driving, I can’t read a street sign until I am… Continue reading Person of a Certain Age

It is official! This evening at the Annual HOA meeting, the HOA Board member election results were announced. I, along with five others, are the new Board. Mind you, there were five positions open, so it was hard to lose when only five people ran. However, and I guessed I missed this in the fine… Continue reading I Was Elected!

Of those, it appears only 30 names have been placed into nomination by the Biden administration. Meaning less than 50% of the openings have nominations in play! Have the Democrats not learned the Judiciary, for better or for worse,… Continue reading Dems Need to Take a Page From Republicans
