June Foray 1917 - 2017

Sadly, June Foray passed away last Thursday. You may not know her face, but I'm sure you know her voice...

June Foray, 99, Prolific Voice Of Rocky The Flying Squirrel Dies

To quote Chuck Jones, the legendary animator who proposed her star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, “June Foray is not the female Mel Blanc, Mel Blanc was the male June Foray.”

Ms. Foray's amazing talent brought great joy to me and generations of others.

Greedy Breeders

German Shepherd Dogs Dying In Misery Due To Intensive Breeding

And we owners are suffering right along with them.

Our beautiful German Shepherd, Elke, is close to being put down because of it.

It's put a strain on our lives because it's very hard to part with a wonderful friend...

Susan, Susan, Susan

Sen. Susan Collins Apologizes For Fat-shaming 'Unbelievably Unattractive Colleague'

Well, I'm shocked! Shocked, I tell you!

Who knew there was a mean girl residing in Susan Collins? I guess the idea of fighting a duel with Blake got her blood boiling.

Yes, the hapless Rep. Blake Farenthold isn't the most attractive guy on the beach, but I'd like to remind Ms. Collins about the parable of throwing stones.

I'd like to remind Rep. Farenthold that talking about duels with colleagues isn't a proper choice of words and certainly not a way to vent in this century.

A pox on both your houses for this.

Childhood Days

The Way We Raise Children Today Might Do More Harm Than Good

This article brings back not only my childhood, but those of my own children.

I grew up in a Manhattan apartment with weekend visits to the park and where pigeons on the fire escape were my only animal friends. It all changed when we move to Florida when I was eleven. That's when the world opened up for me because, all of a sudden, I had a yard and I could play with neighborhood friends until it got dark and was dragged indoors. It was an amazing change for a chained apartment dweller to being outside until dark. My house was the place where we gathered and it was all good fun that started everyday after school and at 7 AM Saturday morning. We had, within limits, our run of the land. We did stuff that we shouldn't have done, but thankfully we got away with all of our childhood indiscretions.

My girls grew up in a different world. They had their adventures, I'm sure, but their actions were way more supervised than mine and their father's were. All told, I feel blessed that my girls are doing very well. I don't know how my husband and I pulled that off, but we did. Yes, we managed to bring two very adept adults into this world in spite the years of nonsensical child rearing news.

I really don't know how credible this article is, but it sounds like something out of ... these are the days of our lives.

Please feel free to talk about your childhood days, though, because that would be more interesting.

Happy Birthday George Orwell

George Orwell was the pen name of Eric Arthur Blair and, although he died in 1950, his works are still relevant.

Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... only cats and parrots will do.

The parrot's leg swipe and the look on the poor cat's face made my day :)

Happy Friday everybody!

What, What, What???

Seriously, how weird is this:

Flibberty Jibberty

In my day, we were dazzled by gyroscopes...

Today, kids watch fidget spinners, well, spin.

Doesn't that make you go "hmmmm"?

[The BLOG note: that "hmmmm" is not a spinning noise, by the way, it's just a basic "hum" noise. I wouldn't want to put anyone at jeopardy.]

Dem Collusion

I'm late to post on this busy day, but Sundance's column from The Conservative Treehouse is the best connect-the-dots column I've read Re: the real Russian collusion culprits...

Curiousor And Curiousor: Natalia Veselnitskaya Pictured With Obama Officials On June 14th, 2016...

Bill Clinton, Natalia, and Democrats, Oh My!!!!

[The BLOG editor's note: Just a small thing, but I would've spelled it "Curiouser And Curiouser"... unless Sundance has a reason for the [sic].

And Monkeys Too?

Monkeys Swarm Ocala Man's Property

It's not enough that we have gators everywhere, now we have to worry about swarms of rhesus macaques?

Liu Xiaobo's Prison

This is the gist of the Liu Xiaobo case:

"In 2008, Mr. Liu founded the Charter 08 movement, which sought to elevate the rule of law and bring China into constitutional government: “China has many laws but no rule of law; it has a constitution but no constitutional government.” On December 10, 2008, the 60th anniversary of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights and 100 years after China’s first constitution was written, Liu released a petition signed by 303 incredibly brave Chinese people in support of the Charter. This was the final straw for the government, which arrested him immediately, and he has been imprisoned since."

Liu Xiaobo's Two Prisons

It is shameful that unlawful imprisonment happens not just in China but in countries all over the world.

More Arkanacide?

This young woman's death occurred in November of 2016. Her death occurred during the 2016 presidential campaign while she was investigating human trafficking in Haiti and did find some evidence of it via the Clinton's Caraol Complex, but it was ignored almost entirely by the Mainstream Media.

Investigator Links Clintons To Human Trafficking In Haiti. Found Dead Of “Suicide” Soon After

If you're interested, here's the bigger story on this mystery...

What Really Happened In Haiti To Monica Peterson? The WASHINGTON POST Employer Of John Podesta Does Damage Control.

I'm not surprised at the extent of the depravity of the Clintons, but I am shocked by the lack of interest by the press. I guess the media has turned like the worm that it is.

I just read this and I can't believe the gall, the nerve of this half-brained twit.

Obama Warns Americans About Too Much Patriotism — On July 4th Weekend!

Will this POS ever shut his stupid mouth?????

Look around you... you're not president anymore.

So, in parting, I'm going to wish you and your nasty family a Happy Independence Day.


I hope you choke on the fact that so many real Americans love celebrating our holiday.

This Corgi mom looks happy...

I did this!
