Freedom from Worry

Some of your hurts you have cured, and the sharpest you still have survived, but what torments of grief you've endured, from evils which never arrived. -Ralph Waldo Emerson   Has worrying ever done you any good? It hasn't ever done me any good. I wasn't always a worrier. Some people are born worriers, it's… Continue reading Freedom from Worry

Rural America, It’s Where Your Produce Comes From

I watched some news while I had dinner. One of the pieces was about a Berkeley Professor who made some not too bright, classicist, intolerant, ignorant remarks on Twitter, giving us another fine example of the many ways in which higher education often fails. What this Harvard educated professor said, among other things, was this:… Continue reading Rural America, It’s Where Your Produce Comes From

Good to Be Home

I am home from a mini-vacation of three days at the beach. We took a trip to celebrate twenty years of marriage, and my birthday is coming up pretty quick, plus, I needed to get away for a few days. The non-stop activity of the last few months had taken its toll. I needed to… Continue reading Good to Be Home

“An Act Regarding the Use of Offensive Words” ~ Calling Monty Python

In my looking around and reading articles about this latest onslaught of attempted restrictions on the First Amendment Rights of American Citizens, I found this opinion piece at "Town Hall" that reveals that the name of the bill that would make it illegal to call someone a bitch, is actually "An Act Regarding the Use… Continue reading “An Act Regarding the Use of Offensive Words” ~ Calling Monty Python

You Can’t Say Bitch in Bean Town

Well, as yet, you still can, but legislation has been introduced in Massachusetts by Democrat Dan Hunt to ban the derogatory use of the word "bitch" and to make such use of the word punishable.   This Meredith Brooks song wasn't ever a favorite of mine, but that could change. https://youtu.be/_ivt_N2Zcts   Everything is offensive… Continue reading You Can’t Say Bitch in Bean Town

The Struggle is Real, Said the Modern Old Fashioned Lady

Well, big surprise here, I bailed on Twitter again. Then I changed my mind. Then I bailed again. There was this alleged news story about a California congress woman's messy divorce that I'd likely have never seen had it not shown up in my Twitter feed. To me, it was kind of a seedy story,… Continue reading The Struggle is Real, Said the Modern Old Fashioned Lady

Forward

This isn't what I was going to write about today. I was going to write about dreams, about thinking positive, being happy, and dreaming bigger. I'm going to save that post for another time. Perhaps tomorrow. I logged on to my computer today and the first thing I saw was a headline about the shooting… Continue reading Forward
