This wasn't my original plan for posting. However, when I opened up Facebook this morning, the very first post I saw was this. Screenshot from my computer. I started seeing this meme yesterday. First, let me say that I don't mind memes that are meant to be funny. I'm not a fan of memes that … Continue reading We Interrupt This Programming to Bring You a Stupid Action By a Police Department
Our county in South Carolina has been under a mandatory evacuation since Tuesday. We did not evacuate. Now, before you start judging, hear me out. I'm not a hurricane rookie. Erin, Floyd, Irene, Sandy, effects of Joaquin, Matthew, and Irma. I think that's the list. My comfort level extends through a Category 2 storm. We … Continue reading Hurricane Weary – No, We Didn’t Evacuate
Let me start by saying that I'm not afraid of technology. I wouldn't say that I'm the first in line for something new, but I like to keep up-to-date on new stuff. We've been car shopping. Not for me, I expect my 2010 Toyota Camry to keep right on going another 5 years or so. … Continue reading That Newfangled Thing and Car Dealerships Are the Devil
In some weird twisted humor in the universe, I received two surveys in the mail recently. One was from the ACLU, a survey about whether my state is infringing upon certain rights, particularly in the areas of abortion and LBGTQ. I know how I was chosen for that survey, because I've donated to the ACLU … Continue reading Fun with Surveys
It's not exactly a secret, but I have Crohn's Disease. So not only do I get the pleasure of the symptoms that go along with it, but I'm at an increased risk of colon cancer. The longer a person has had it, the risk increases. So I'm on the 2 year plan for colonoscopies. Just … Continue reading Everyone’s Favorite Procedure
I started seeing this statement sometime last year, I think. Probably during one of the many attempts to yank healthcare out from under Americans. I don't know to whom it should be attributed, or I would certainly give credit. I've decided that this is one of my mottoes, although I hate that it's necessary. I … Continue reading I Don’t Know How to Explain to You that You Should Care about Other People
For a very brief time, we were a two-cat family. Our senior citizen cat, Sophie, seemed to get more neurotic as she got older, and we had hoped that bringing a younger cat home would give her some company when one of her "kids" was missing. That kind of turned out to not be the case, … Continue reading He Tricked Us and Stole Our Hearts
I may live in South Carolina, and we certainly have our share of batshit crazy stuff here, but I grew up in Kentucky, and I still keep tabs on it. Which is how I know that the Dishonorable Governor Matt Bevin is one of the most hated men in that state. Bevin was a precursor … Continue reading Kentucky Governor Matthew Bevin, AKA the Devil Incarnate
Updated on April 2.... unfortunately, the space junk fell into the South Pacific. Too bad, maybe next time! I'm a reluctant landlord. Long story short, we became homeowners right before the housing market tanked, and 12 years later, we're still underwater on that house, and we don't even live in the same state now. We've … Continue reading Hey, Chinese Space Lab! A little to the left!
To date, the United States Constitution has been amended 27 times. The Amendments are not meant to be taken in order of importance, each is considered as important as the others. Each Amendment has been scrutinized for its legality, with restrictions and extensions placed on each one. Therefore, to say that it’s wrong to restrict … Continue reading Don’t Tell Me We Can’t Restrict Rights. We Already Have.
