What a Perfect Spot for a Picnic!

Don’t mind the rattlesnakes, they don’t like sandwiches. In Closing:  A little NSA and government spying stuff; a little education stuff; a little health and fitness and diet stuff; a little women’s issues stuff; a little historical stuff.

Sign of the Times

“Vintage Antiques? Well, honestly I was hoping you had some brand new antiques!” In Closing: sick and tired; CISPA is back from the dead; “Lack of exercise responsible for twice as many early deaths as obesity”; ok ok, we’ll tell you what the NSA is doing, but we aren’t planning on stopping; institutional sexism; a third […]

Moment of Silence

December 7, 1941: Pearl Harbor. Last week, I did see one of these on the road:   These guys are still out there. In Closing: having a hard time working up sympathy for the lady who’s so scared of being a “bag lady” that she buys a fur coat. Thank heaven at least one person — […]

Skills to Pay the Bills

  It’s important to keep those computer skills up to date! So be sure to check out these super-keen books on cutting edge computer stuff. Just in case you think I’m dragging up old pictures, please note “QuickBooks 2011 for Dummies” right below the far less timely book on Excel 2007. For the record, I […]

Career Choices for Girls to Consider

Posted by on October 15, 2014 at 10:29 pm

Doctor, Minnie Mouse, or Princess? Hmm, so many choices. In Closing: hell froze over; die with a t on the end; to paraphrase, “I didn’t mean any ill intent, only that the military should rise up and put that ****** in his place!”; and a cool way to explore the periodic table.

Harvest Time is Upon Us!

And apparently, nothing says “autumn” to my local store than pumpkins and lots of boxed wine! Or perhaps you’d prefer the hard stuff? Drink that much Jack, and you’ll need the tombstone! As the nice lady sang, “Cheers to the freakin weekend! I’ll drink to that.” In Closing: personality test; Carlin; what could possibly go […]

Newly Remodeled, Enlarged Asian Food Section

  That’s a lot of rice. And in the upper left, a whole bunch of Sriracha! For the record, this particular store is in the Kroger family of stores, about 5 minutes from the Las Vegas Chinatown.

Honeysuckle in Bloom

Posted by on May 28, 2014 at 8:45 pm

  In Closing: let the mental health circular firing squad of mostly half-baked ideas begin (but too many people my age and better remember these asshats for any real reform that involves hospitalizing more people); A few stray NSA and Snowden items for you; slipping away; real median household income; “choose between Satan and Lucifer”; yeah, maybe your […]

Red Oleander

Posted by on May 8, 2014 at 6:39 pm

  In Closing: Slippery slope; Empire in decline; ok sure, have some NSA, Snowden, spying, and bonus Homeland Security links; Yellen at nothin; deny it all you like; yeah right, it might result in a very nasty bit of commentary but populist revolt??; it’s almost like math teachers get bored and try inventing new ways […]
