One of the foundations I support annually is Judicial Watch. They do really good things for our country and deserve every cent and more of the money I donate annually. This article is by Micah Morrison, chief investigative reporter for Judicial Watch.  Judicial Watch at the Supreme Court: Fighting for Clean Elections Battles for clean […]

The truth about “green” energy

I’m astounded that common sense and logic have no place in the thinking of the green energy advocates. After the disaster in Texas where people froze to death because the government (federal) would not let the state (wtf?) ensure there was sufficient backup for the “green” energy when it failed, you’d think more people would have […]

I donate every year to a number of organizations/foundations/charities. When I shopped at Amazon I used their smile donation for Samaritan’s Purse, the best charity ever. Now that I no longer use Amazon, I’ve added them to my donation list along with Freedom Foundation, Convention of States, Heritage Action, Judicial Watch, Heritage Foundation and Sidney […]

desultory adj : marked by lack of definite plan or regularity or purpose; jumping from one thing to another; “desultory thoughts”; “the desultory conversation characteristic of cocktail parties” Because up to now I have led a fairly desultory life, I haven’t taken a lot of exception to the amount of time I’ve spent filtering through […]

Any programmer will tell you, there are at least 67 different ways to get to the end goal of any programming project.  It never fails to amaze me that I’ll suddenly learn some new trick or method.  It speaks to our continued flexibility that, as we age, we continue to learn, grow and adapt. I […]

I’m a little bit of a fashion junkie.  In my 30’s I belonged to a high fashion sewing group.  I made high quality lux clothes out of silk and linen and wool for wearing to work.  I designed my own patterns and generally enjoyed the creativity and exchange of ideas. Because I like fashion, I […]

Canon rules, HP drools

Unless we’re forced to change, we have a tendency to stick to what we know, however bad it might be, because we know it.  It’s the classic fear of the unknown.  Such was the case when my old HP printer bit the dust.  I blindly bought another HP.  Boy was that a mistake.  A BIG […]

There’s something highly ironic about the “green” candidate expiring beneath the wheels of an SUV while riding her bike in the pre-dawn hours. My condolences go out to the family.  The woman who hit her has to be in angst.  My sympathies extend to her as well.  I’m betting it will take as long for […]

I spend a lot of time learning things.  It’s not intentional.  I don’t say “today I’m going to learn about . . . “, I just need to know things.  Today it’s all about bog coats (getting ready to teach a workshop) which lead to “guba”, an old European type of coat woven from roughly […]

I am beyond pissed.  If you know me, you already know it takes a massive amount to get me truly pissed.  Hewlett Packard has managed to do it.  Here’s the deal. I replaced my old HP printer (PCS1210v) with a new HP F4235 sometime last year.  I don’t print a lot but since I bought […]
