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.
Or had he?
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.
The Democrats and The Republicans have been doing their own thing for way too long. Neither side is able to work with the other. Oftentimes, they can’t even work within their own party.
The Republican Party hasn’t been a strong party that works together for years. The Tea Party is proof of that.

FINALLY UNDERSTANDING MOM FINALLY UNDERSTANDING MOM by Marilyn Armstrong I don’t remember how many times my mother told me this story, or how many times I have told it to you. It bears retelling.
