America In Wonderland

Although 1984 comes to my mind as well, here's an interesting article from The American Thinker:

America In Wonderland

No, I'm madder than you Obama, but I'm madder angry and you're madder insane.

Felix 1999 - 2016

We had to put down our beloved Felix yesterday. We had him since he was eight weeks old and miss him already.

It's been a rough month for us and our pets.

Good Snake

"This is a speckled kingsnake. He is harmless and he kills and eats other BAD snakes. Do not kill these! This is the best thing you can have around your house. So let him be!"

OK, comon down to my house, speckled kingsnake.

I feel the same way when flocks of egrets congregate on my lawn and peck away at the bugs.

Eat up, guys.

Silent Sugar

We're working on cutting processed sugar from our diet, but there are foods that are marketed as "healthy" yet contain large amounts of hidden sugar.

Product labels are worth reading. Common sense helps, too.

Double Down On Dumb

University Students Are Struggling To Read Entire Books

During a brief foray between my science classes and into taking a few business classes, I ran across a student who on her first day of hearing she had to learn about graphs in our Intro To Microeconomics class went into a meltdown. She threw her writing implement across her desk and yelled, "Graphs?" She clearly didn't expect any math in her major of business administration.


It didn't take me long to realize I wasn't a good fit for the business administration curriculum and I decided to stick with science.

That was years ago, but now they're whining about reading books?

Oh, we're in so much trouble.

Grand Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... my daughter's cat, Baby, who hides when she hears the sound of packing because she hates going into her cat box. This past Monday she hid in the bed's box spring and my husband ended up lifting the entire bed assembly so our daughter could grab her.

My husband said Baby was very surprised when her cat cave was upended. "Mess with Grandpa and you get an earthquake."

It's always hectic around here, but I'm sure it's that way in many of your homes, too, especially around tax time.

Happy Friday, everybody!

Wordless Wednesday

Tuesday, April 05, 2016


In just the time I've been sitting at the computer trying to resolve my log in problem, I've been bitten eight times by the same mosquito and all of the bites are on my right arm!

Make that nine... I just found one on my elbow.

It's one of the small ones that are hard to swat... probably a zika one.


Log in problems.

Throwback Thursday

On the morning news today they were talking about the '80's and showing embarrassing photos of everyone...

I thought it would be fun to share one of mine.

This is my husband and me back then.

Care to share yours?

FACT SHEET: President Obama Proposes $1.1 Billion In New Funding To Address The Prescription Opioid Abuse And Heroin Use Epidemic

Isn't it ironic that Obama is proposing a 1.1 billion increase in new funding for prescription opioid abuse and a heroin use epidemic when he's probably the cause of this increase in opioid and heroin abuse.

Am I the only one who thinks this?

Winning Is Good

I'm not a basketball fan. I'm 5'4, but I could always make a free throw when I had to, and if you're a basketball player, you'd better make those every single time.

But I am all for the UConn team being the best.

Geno Auriemma Says If You Don't Like UConn's Dominance, 'Don't watch'

When did winning become bad?

I remember playing board games and card games with my grandmother when I was little. I lost many games to her. I complained to her about why she didn't let me win sometimes.

She said, "You want to win?"

"Yes." I replied.

"Then you need to be better. That's how you win."

That was a life lesson for me.

I don't understand how we've gotten away from winning being a good thing.

There's nothing wrong with memorials, teddy bears, and candles, but I think we need to do more.

Special Snowflakes

My eldest is a millennial herself and she refers to these students as "special snowflakes."

I agree.

Emory University President Says Students Are Scared And 'In Pain' After Someone Wrote 'Trump 2016' In Chalk On Campus

My university experience was nothing like this insanity, but of course, I was too busy studying math and science to whine and cry about stupid stuff.

A Confederacy Of Dunces

Hear that? That is the sound of my jaw dropping to the floor when I heard Obama's Cuba speech...

Obama: Cuba's Revolution, Like America's, Was A 'Liberation Movement."

I'd bet my last dollar that Obama isn't referring to Cuba's liberation from Spanish rule in 1898.

Put down the basketball brackets and pick up a history book, you bleeping moron!
