End Of A Mission

Cassini, The NASA Spacecraft That Expanded The Search For Life Beyond Earth, Dies In Saturn’s Sky

Cassini was the largest outerplanetary spacecraft ever built and performed its near-20 year mission in exemplary fashion.

I admit I was little sad to see it go *poof*.

UPDATE: A reminder that Cassini's launch on 10/15/97 was very controversial because it carried 72 pounds of Plutonium 238. There were many protests and much vocal opposition to the mission. You think they feel foolish today? Nah.

Still Here

Tampa got a lucky break yesterday.

Thank the Lord.

Nothing like a hurricane to make you forget your 35th anniversary. We were too busy staying alive to celebrate.

God help us all.

I Heart Alicia

Alicia Colon writes another good piece...

OMG, Falling In Love With The President

I know the feeling.


Have you seen this woman? Seriously? An unspeakable Eldritch horror says it all.


I know this news is a little late, but I just want it known that although there is a monster storm on it's way towards my state, I'm not in no way concerned about what our First Lady is going to wear on her feet when she comes to commiserate our losses.

Twit Is Short For Twitter

A mother can't voice her opposition to a teen magazine's article about anal sex without getting censored?

Say what? you say...

Twitter Bans Activist Mommy For Tweeting Her Dislike of Teen Vogue's Anal Sex Guide

I'm going to pursue this issue because I don't think Twitter has any business banning this woman's account just because they don't agree with her beliefs.

Where do they get off inflicting their intolerant ways onto the public at large?

Who made Twitter the moral arbiters of anything, much less what we, the people, think is acceptable in social media?

Twitter needs to un-ban Elizabeth Johnston's "The Activist Mommy" account because it isn't up to you them to pick sides on the political landscape.

Some Monsters ARE Real

Hurricane Irma Closes In On South Florida’s East Coast

As Floridians we are used to preparing for the worst and hoping for the best.

Also, in trying times such as these, we run or we lay low.

Elke 2006 - 2017

Our beloved Elke passed away on Friday, September 1st. My husband and I were with her until the end.

Elke was a high-spirited, intelligent and loyal friend and she will be dearly missed by her human pack.
