I kept wondering why I never saw a bluebird. Ever. Not here or in New York. And I know they live here. But this morning I got up and looked out my back windows and the deck was full of bluebirds! A good sign for Thanksgiving, isn’t it? Here are some of them. BLUE BIRDS OF…
I admit it. By the end of about six hours of impeachment testimony, I knew I’d never survive the Democratic debate. Also, Garry said he’d leave home if I didn’t change the channel — which I was intending to do anyway — but he supplied the final push. I just handed him the remote and […]…

I am a Republican who will probably be voting for The Libertarian Party come November.
Danny is a Libertarian and as far as I was concerned, had been throwing his vote away for years.

This time I will be voting for a 3rd party, even though I am very much a Republican.
I believe that we need a 3rd viable party. Maybe even a 4th . The people aren’t being heard.
