Happy Easter! Did you find any chocolate in inappropriate places today?

We’re not religious, nor do we have any little ones in the house, so we just sort of forgot about the whole thing until we tried to buy some milk, and found the grocery store closed Friday.

Waking up on a Sunday morning to a world without Facebook. Oh my, it must have been at least an hour before it was back on line … such a long … lonely … hour ….  Where were all my … argumentative strangers?

There is a century-old bridge in Scotland, just northwest of Glasgow, called Overtoun. For many years, dogs have felt compelled to leap from the bridge to their death on the rocks below. More than 300 canines have leaped from the ‘dog suicide bridge, with 50 or more dogs said to have died from their injuries.

Roxanne Tellier – Does this Mueller Report Make Trump’s Ass Look Fat?

Posted in Opinion, politics, Review with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 24, 2019 by segarini

FOX News is trying to spike the ball on it already, declaring total victory for Trump before anyone has even seen what is in the statement, and despite the results of a poll of their own viewers showing that a majority of Americans believe that the president tried to interfere in the investigation.

In other news, the president has threatened the American people with his quasi Brown Shirts enforcement crews of military, police and motorcycle heavies, should the evidence contain anything that hurts his standing or feelings .. but mostly his feelings.

Peter – Doctors and Guns

Posted in Opinion, politics with tags , , , , , , on March 21, 2019 by segarini

Living in “middle class” North America a) in 2019, you have no need for guns in your daily routine. No need to shoot your lunch and no need to keep the “wolf” from your door, literally.

Sounds sensible, ehh? That’s what you’d think. However, apparently not everyone agrees. Last summer the “Angel of Death” laid its clammy hand on Toronto, as there was a mass shooting on the Danforth, with fatalities and wounded. Many lives were changed forever, in a second. They were innocent lives.

Roxanne Tellier – The Butterfly Effect

I’m not sure if I’m blessed or cursed to have a fairly large amount of time in my life in which I can spend hours down the rabbit hole of the Internet, researching and following any thread that interests me.

I can spend days, even weeks,  deep diving into all things esoteric and non. In an ideal world, I would live in a salon, where others of like minds would join me in this intellectual pursuit, and we would solve all of the mysteries of the universe.

Roxanne Tellier – The Trappings of Fame

“Fame …  makes a man take things over …. puts you there where things are hollow”

If you were a baby boomer in the sixties, you most likely never knew anyone who was ‘really really’ rich. There was a kid in my school whose dad was a famous football player, but I didn’t know her well. And there was another friend who came from Texas;  they had a big house, and even had a maid, who let us make chilli and mess up the kitchen.

I had relatives who had oil patch money – they didn’t come around to many family parties, though. They likely got tired of being hit up for loans that would never get repaid.

When you think about it, one of the most famous, and presumably wealthiest, person with a high profile, back in those days, was Elvis. And by today’s standards, Graceland isn’t exactly the Taj Mahal. Not with all that shag carpeting. But for the time, it was high glam.
