Love one an nother.....

Or Love one another.....


How do I find out who Ive friended ?????

Have made some responses to remarks, and people who have read my remarks have wanted to get in touch with me. How do I respond to them???

Wow a very good read regarding the Obama voters who overwhelmingly voted for tRump......

In the year since President Trump pulled off his stunning upset of Hillary Clinton, Democrats have blamed the result on all kinds of factors: James Comeyís letter, Russian hackers, voter suppression, Jill Steinís candidacy and depressed African-American turnout, to name a few. The truth? In an election decided by fractions of percentage points, itís easy to call just about anything a difference-maker.

But none of that gets at the heart of why so many people who cast a ballot for former president Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012 ó and who saw Trump as unqualified to be president ó nonetheless voted for him. Although itís far from a microcosm of the nation, thereís one place that I believe illustrates what happened in 2016 better than anything else.

In a nation increasingly composed of landslide counties ó places that voted for one side or the other by at least 20 percentage points ó Howard County, Iowa (population 9,332), stands out as the only one of Americaís 3,141 counties that voted by more than 20 percentage points for Obama in 2012 and Trump in 2016. Democrats canít credibly blame Howard Countyís enormous 41-point swing in just four years on a last-minute letter to Congress, voter ID laws or Russia-sponsored Facebook ads.

Howard County, about 150 miles northeast of Des Moines along the stateís border with Minnesota, is 98 percent white. Only 13 percent of residents age 25 and over hold at least a bachelorís degree. Median household income in the county in 2015 was $49,869. The largest employers in Cresco, the county seat, include the Donaldson Company, an air filter manufacturer whose local workers belong to the United Auto Workers union, and Featherlite, which makes aluminum livestock and utility trailers.


It really was a perfect storm for Hillary to lose and that orange piece of shit to win......

Ok, so didnt I read someplace that Thanksgiving cactus should be given bright

indirect light??? Well not sure that is true......I moved my cactus to a South side window and I swear to gawd itís in heaven. Every leaf segment has at least one flower bud and lots have two buds ready to flower around Thanksgiving. Itís awesome. I wish I could show you, but not tech savvy to accomplish that. I water it every two weeks, and it has just taken off. Our neighbor has his in a South side window and he told me try it, I did am just in awe of the plant. Itís been about a year since the move, had it in a East facing window before. So wonderful to soon have flowers during this dreary part of the year.

ESPN is fake news indeed......per Bill Belichick.....


and again, if you can stomach it.....watch faux noise

even if it's just for a few minutes.....

Oh boy........Jim Beam has a new hashtag, #BoycottBeam.

What has the world come to when even bourbon gets caught up in politics?

(Actually, don't answer that.)

Over the weekend, bourbon brand Jim Beam got dragged into the fight over women's rights after its spokeswoman, actress Mila Kunis, revealed that she's been sending monthly donations to Planned Parenthood in Vice President Mike Pence's name.

See, Kunis doesn't agree with Pence's non-wavering stance against abortion rights.

And as a guest on TBS's "Conan," she told host Conan O'Brien that she chose to voice her disagreement by adding his name to a list of reoccurring donations made to the women's health care provider.

"I don't look at it as a prank, I look at it just as, I strongly disagree [with him], and this is my little way of showing it," Kunis said, according to The Hill.

Pence supporters and abortion opponents did not take kindly to Kunis's shenanigans.

And they made their disagreements known by starting a #BoycottBeam campaign on Twitter.


Cross Vin Scully off my folks I admire list.....hes not watching another NFL game.....

Vin Scully said Saturday night that he will ďnever watch another NFL gameĒ in response to the ongoing demonstrations by some players during the national anthem.

Speaking at ďAn Evening with Vin ScullyĒ at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium on Saturday, the longtime Los Angeles Dodgers announcer was asked about the response from owners, players and commissioner Roger Goodell to the demonstrations, which players have used to protest racial injustice and police brutality.

ďI have only one personal thought, really. And I am so disappointed,Ē Scully said, according to multiple videos of the moment posted on social media. ďI used to love, during the fall and winter, to watch the NFL on Sunday. And itís not that Iím some great patriot. I was in the Navy for a year. Didnít go anywhere. Didnít do anything. But I have overwhelming respect and admiration for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war. So the only thing I can do in my little way is not to preach. I will never watch another NFL game.Ē
