About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

But it's not just for any MAGAt reach-outs.

Fuck them. Thatís work is just as valuable aimed at ourselves. Itís reminders, encouragements, ideas that might spark MORE ideas or strategies or ways around whatever the obstacle is. Itís how we figure out ways to outsmart them. Itís challenges that make us think, and think AROUND whatever the problem is. And get more creative about the problem AND the problem-SOLVING.

Something tried that doesnít work? Okay then! Itís as useful and instructive to know what DOESNíT work as knowing what does. It can force your thinking and strategizing into new directions, or maybe a twist on what didnít work that can change the dynamic. ANY of that stuff can be helpful!

And ALWAYS think of it NOT as a defeat or a mistake, but a new challenge.

And oddly enough, sometimes itís a good thing to just sleep in it. Sometimes stepping away and circling back around with fresh eyes or a little rest can spark a new idea or approach or inspiration. A new ďwhat ifÖĒ or ďwhy notÖĒ

That, too. DEFINITELY.

Those who can pay more - should. Patriotic duty and Christianity and all that.

Well, he doesn't do a good job around the edges.

Iíve seen SO MANY photos of him, in profile, and you can see the anemic white skin around the ears. AND hair of all one color blonde? Seriously? Heís fooling some of the people some of the time.

The vastly wealthy should pay the most in taxes.

To me, it always feels like the 200-pound muscleman expects to ride in the cart that the 98-pound weakling has to pull.

Any of these photos could make a great greeting card.

Hey, Botany, how are you doing?

Just wondering, as the days pass.

How are you getting along, and coping? You okay?

Works for me!

SAG/AFTRA here. UNION!!! Itís the only leverage we workers have - for rights, respect, and a decent wage and benefits to support our families.

Every time I hear what some CEO is getting paid, I want to add more muscle to the union movement.

Not bad though for developing compelling talking points.

And the more lacerating those talking points are, the better for us Democrats. You want to stick with the party that wants to throw you to the wolves? Or do you have a legitimate need for a little help?

Well, there is that.

I heard a report recently that traced the history of the government shutdowns. ALL of them brought to you by Republicans.

So what would they rather have? Anarchy?
