CANNOT believe it’s Thursday. Oh my gosh. What on earth have I been doing this week?! ** The daughter and I have been making drapes for the living room windows. I am so out of practice, it’s sad. I can’t seem to sew in a straight line anymore. :-p But the curtains will eventually look […]

Saw this bumper sticker while out shopping and it make me bust laughing. Sorry it’s so blurry. The driver was still in the car in the parking lot. I felt uncomfortable stopping and snapping a photo of them, so I kept walking while taking the photo. LOL.

Uh Oh. Rebecca’s Talking Politics!

I know I am wading into very dangerous territory…. can’t imagine why, since BOTH modern-styled Democrat and Republican parties are totally nutso! :brudder: Usually, watching presidential speeches can put you to sleep faster than a speeding bullet. But Ronald Reagan was simply an amazing master of the spoken word. Even my kids gather around the […]

Sustainable Seafood for Us LandLubbers

Comments Off on Sustainable Seafood for Us LandLubbers

I grew up near Oneida Lake, New York State’s largest inland lake. It is SO beautiful there. Besides going to the lake and swimming whenever I wanted, I also enjoyed fresh seafood from the lake. There is nothing like delicious fresh, local seafood, yum! But now that I live far away from any lake, seafood […]

Ya gotta love hackers. I know, they can wreak SUCH havoc. But when you really need to make a point to idiot politicians who want to put everything online, hackers really come in handy, and drive the point home. According to this article at The Washington Post (Hacker infiltration ends D.C. online voting trial), hackers […]

My Take on New York’s Fiscal Problems

June 10, 2010

All of New York’s state workers are breaking out the fiddles. They’re rearranging the deck chairs. Passing out the lifeboats. (Except the only calls to board them are “state workers and politicians first! State workers and politicians first!”) I saw this latest OHMYGOSHNEWYORKISGOINGTODIEEEEEE headline. Had to laugh. If New York State tanks and goes to […]

While in office she survived six attempted coups but had limited success in improving the economic situation, in curbing the excesses of […]

I got this in my Patriot Post email this morning. *groan* Well done, but the truth hurts! An Easily Understandable Explanation of Derivative Markets Heidi is the proprietor of a bar in Detroit. She realizes that virtually all of her customers are unemployed alcoholics and, as such, can no longer afford to patronize her bar. […]

The Rhinoceros Party of Canada

February 15, 2009

It’s true! There really was a Rhinoceros Party, of Canada! And we all thought American politics was weird… The Rhinoceros Party was a bona-fide political party in Canada from the 1960s to the 1990s. Their platform promise? Not “CHANGE,” nay! It was more honest– “a promise to keep none of our promises.” Now that’s a […]

She’s Totally Desperate

I don’t usually talk politics here on this blog. It’s too stressful. There just aren’t any good statesmen anymore (except Ron Paul! :D). If I think about politics too much, I’ll explode. I have my blood pressure to think about. And what a mess that would make all over the walls, tsk tsk. Anyway, I […]
