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?

Maybe It's You?

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.

Angry Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... a cat angry over recent terrorist attacks in Brussels.

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

Try to have a happy Friday in spite of the sorry we all feel.

Happy Easter.

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!

Professional Protester?

For the people praising the guy who went after Trump on stage, here's another shot of him for you, just so you know exactly what you're supporting.

PC Kowtowing Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... a cat in a burqa? Say what?

I guess it can happen in this new PC world where the powers that be kowtow to the outlandish demands of moslems and other boisterous groups.

Anti-Sleep Conspiracy?

I drove my husband and daughters to the airport this past Saturday and that meant I was alone with two big dogs and six cats. They were all very needy because there was only one person at home to cater to their many needs...
there was no dilution factor.

The trip went well for them and I picked up my family on Tuesday and I thought I'd finally be able to get some sleep that night... then I wrenched my left knee that afternoon (all I did was turn abruptly) and couldn't sleep no matter how much Naproxen and Ibuprofen I took. I was elevating my leg in the living room, but it was very sore even when I kept it still.

I finally dozed off and my husband's phone phone alarm went off at 3:45 am and wouldn't stop until I stumbled over to the office and shut it off.

It was the worst night's sleep I've had in weeks.


Let's hope tomorrow night will be better 'cause I can't take much more. Bad knee or not, I may just fall asleep on my feet.
