I was originally going to send the following letter to my 3 representatives but decided in today’s culture of instantaneous tweets that there would be insufficient focus to read the whole note. So I sent basically the question: Where do you stand on “voter fraud” as rumored, tweeted, and propagated by President Trump, and the lack of critical information transfer to President-elect Biden?
[updated 12:54am 11/18/2020] With the firing of Chris Krebs for upholding and investigating the election process and finding no threats or breaks of security, it seems like this country is truly screwed. When honest fact reporting that is contrary to a personal “opinion” is discarded, we are no longer dealing with reality.Continue reading “Stand Up for Truth, Honor, Decency, Integrity and Honesty”
From Wikipedia: “Confirmation bias is the tendency to search for, interpret, favor, and recall information in a way that confirms or supports one’s prior beliefs or values.”
We are all somewhat guilty of this especially during the 2020 chaos and divisiveness but our media streams and search engines (and streaming media) filter bubbles only set our preferences (aka biases) in virtual stone.
Wonder what would happen if I begin to continuously search for kindness, bubble guppies, compassion, caring, gratitude, paw patrol, love, hugs, peace, and other terms of endearment and unity? Could be an experiment with timely implications versus continuing to do searches regarding the election results et al…

September 19 is Talk Like A Pirate day but I am daily confronted with the news stories of people who have no respect or civility for anyone else and “Aaarrrr!” is becoming my mantra.Continue reading “Talking Like A Pirate”
What? What the heck is “hydrostatic pressure”? Well, it’s the water pressure in the ground around the home, as an example. It is the all too frequent cause of water damage inside the home when the pressure pushes the water through the nooks and crannies…and sometimes seemingly impenetrable walls of the home. Once inside, it can lead to damage to flooring, furniture, and walls. It can also linger on as mold and mildew. Continue reading “Hydrostatic Pressure”
I took our cat to the vet today and the only sane way to do that was to put him in our carry crate (aka cat carrier but we call it a crate). Needless to say, he was not a happy camper. He howled and cried all the way to the veterinarian and all the way back home.
