As if we didn’t already have enough to worry about with our current president and his administration. You know, the tweets, the harassment of women, buddying up to white nationalists, backing down from the NRA, his family running the country, and least we forget, the lying, lying, lying. Oh, and his inability stand-up to Russia,… Continue reading Get Ready…The Drum Beat To War Has Begun
A little while ago I wrote asking about what a former educator, me, might do after retirement. I received a few very viable possibilities. One of those (thanks Sonia) has stuck in my mind to possibly even start on the side now. I just have to hash out what it might look like and the… Continue reading Where to Live for Retirement
Dear RuPaul, You really broke your own ground rule of , “Don’t F* It Up!,” on All Stars 3. You let your queens decide who should be in the final two to lip sync for the chance to join the All Stars Hall of Fame. Big, no dare I say it, huuuugge mistake. Those queens,… Continue reading Dear RuPaul…
Hillary, please don’t make me regret voting for you in the 2016 election (although full-disclosure, I was a Bernie person). You lost. For better or for worse, the electorate, through the Electoral College, chose the current administration. I know no one likes to lose and it can make one bitter. Don’t go there. If you… Continue reading Hillary, puh-lease…
Interestingly, Hillary and Melania have been on my mind in recent weeks. I would have to say they became prominent in my mind after the Stephanie Clifford (aka Stormy Daniels) story broke. I’ve been wondering if Hillary has reached out to Melania at all. After all, Melania was not in competition with Hillary, Melanie’s husband… Continue reading Hillary and Melania
We started off with another very nice day. Although I had planned on stopping at Lowe’s to get some more mulch, I did have some impulse buys too. While heading towards the mulch, I rolled by some raised garden dirt. It caught my eye, but I didn’t grab any until I was on my way… Continue reading Pansies and Brooms
I’m a planner and a worrier. Not always a good combination. Lately I’ve been wondering (aka worrying and wanting to plan), about what I’ll be qualified to do after being in education for so long. I’ve four official years until I can “retire” with years of service and my age as qualifiers. Once I do… Continue reading Life After Teaching, What To Do?
For the second year in a row, I’ve been able to see all of the Best Picture nominees. Thanks to Regal Cinema’s for their Film Festival Passes, which for $35, one can see all Best Picture nominees multiple times throughout the run of the Festival. Plus, you can get a discount on a drink/popcorn combo.… Continue reading It’s Oscar Time
Today was a great weather day. Not too hot, not too cold, and oddly, not too windy. Perfect for working in the yard and garden. This weather has me antsy to start planting things. I’m holding off though since I know it is bound to get cold again, and if it is like last year,… Continue reading The Manure Has Been Spread
There have been many stories such as this one, but it has been on my mind and I need to get it out there. Schools have to have drills of all sorts: Tornado, active shooter, lock-down, shelter-in-place, earthquake, fire, and I’m sure there are some I’ve never heard of yet to mention. Yesterday, we had… Continue reading What is this feeling called?
