I thought the exhaustion from chemo

therapy was bad - then I got some radiation treatment. I think I'm coming out of it now, but for several weeks I've been a zombie (the slow moving kind)

Target has taken a number of stands recently -

it's store policy that women can breastfeed and people select which bathroom they use. Boycotts have been threatened. Does this make Target an" angry white guy" free zone?

Lots of things don't taste right anymore - a lifelong tea drinker,

I just stopped drinking it because it wasn't right. So I was thrilled to find out that ruby grapefruit juice tastes great. Then, I accidentally found out that grapefruit juice interferes with at least one medication. Can I get a pity chorus from a tiny violin?

Is Trump running to stay out of jail?

On Tuesday, a New York court ruled that Schneiderman's $40 million civil suit alleging fraud against Trump University would still have to go to trial, even though Schneiderman had asked the court for a ruling based on the evidence already presented.

No date has been set for a trial. But according to a statement from Schneiderman, the judge "indicated her intention to move as expeditiously as possible."

A spokesman for Schneiderman's office said the trial could take place as early as this fall. If so, that timing could prove tricky for Trump should he be chosen as the GOP's presidential nominee.

Iraq, Libya and maybe Syria, too?

Some time in the first hour the topic of Libya came up, and Clinton managed to fit in a suggestion that if it had been up to her, we'd have more troops in Syria training the good rebels. I'm afraid she's going to drag us into a war to prove how tough she is.

What's worse than an ear worm? How about half an earworm?

I can almost remember this song, and the fragments keep running through my head without coming together into something I recognize!

Planting a shrub or tree.....

One school says dig a hole as big as possible. (EX. 2' by 2' for potted or bare root rose bush) Another school says dig a hole as wide as the roots to avoid disturbing the existing soil layers. What say you (and why)?

Does Chemo make you sleep 16 hours at a time?

I feel so lazy.
