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.

Hes come a long way. But still dont entirely trust him.

But he’s another in an expanding series of (at least temporarily) disillusioned GOPers for whom trump has stunk up the joint too badly to want to stay in the party.


And more power to him!

Unions are there for a reason.

The best interests and protections of WORKERS. Such a shame that the bad guys have smeared the union movement so thoroughly.



ENOUGH with the “MUST be immaculately perfect” stuff.

There is no “perfect.” Nowhere in humankind. Why is that so difficult to accept? I can think of countless people of both genders who are still looking for “perfect.” And they will never find it. Because it just isn’t there.

I’m always reminded of that Lee Remick line in the movie “The Competition.” It was a film awhile back, also starring the then-young Richard Dreyfuss and Amy Irving as competitors in an international piano competition. Lee Remick played Amy Irving’s piano teacher/mentor. Spoiler alert: Irving and Dreyfuss fall in love. Irving then beats presumed favorite Dreyfuss in the competition. Angst ensues about whether their love affair is now ruined, and at the victory party, winner Irving mopes all alone in a side room. Remick enters the room to snap her out of it, telling her prize student: “it’s going to take another 100 years for Nature to evolve the kind of man you have in mind. So get out there and dance with what there IS!”


Theres that little concern-troll frown on his widdle concern-troll face.

He long ago abandoned his little-boy bow tie but he’ll always be a little boy to me. Color me unimpressed.

Of course! Nice to see that obnoxious little boy sent to his corner where he belongs.

Excellent retort, Congressman Swalwell! Spot-on!

Or does he even realize they exist?
