Childhood Days

The Way We Raise Children Today Might Do More Harm Than Good

This article brings back not only my childhood, but those of my own children.

I grew up in a Manhattan apartment with weekend visits to the park and where pigeons on the fire escape were my only animal friends. It all changed when we move to Florida when I was eleven. That's when the world opened up for me because, all of a sudden, I had a yard and I could play with neighborhood friends until it got dark and was dragged indoors. It was an amazing change for a chained apartment dweller to being outside until dark. My house was the place where we gathered and it was all good fun that started everyday after school and at 7 AM Saturday morning. We had, within limits, our run of the land. We did stuff that we shouldn't have done, but thankfully we got away with all of our childhood indiscretions.

My girls grew up in a different world. They had their adventures, I'm sure, but their actions were way more supervised than mine and their father's were. All told, I feel blessed that my girls are doing very well. I don't know how my husband and I pulled that off, but we did. Yes, we managed to bring two very adept adults into this world in spite the years of nonsensical child rearing news.

I really don't know how credible this article is, but it sounds like something out of ... these are the days of our lives.

Please feel free to talk about your childhood days, though, because that would be more interesting.

Happy Birthday George Orwell

George Orwell was the pen name of Eric Arthur Blair and, although he died in 1950, his works are still relevant.

Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... only cats and parrots will do.

The parrot's leg swipe and the look on the poor cat's face made my day :)

Happy Friday everybody!

Flibberty Jibberty

In my day, we were dazzled by gyroscopes...

Today, kids watch fidget spinners, well, spin.

Doesn't that make you go "hmmmm"?

[The BLOG note: that "hmmmm" is not a spinning noise, by the way, it's just a basic "hum" noise. I wouldn't want to put anyone at jeopardy.]

Dem Collusion

I'm late to post on this busy day, but Sundance's column from The Conservative Treehouse is the best connect-the-dots column I've read Re: the real Russian collusion culprits...

Curiousor And Curiousor: Natalia Veselnitskaya Pictured With Obama Officials On June 14th, 2016...

Bill Clinton, Natalia, and Democrats, Oh My!!!!

[The BLOG editor's note: Just a small thing, but I would've spelled it "Curiouser And Curiouser"... unless Sundance has a reason for the [sic].

And Monkeys Too?

Monkeys Swarm Ocala Man's Property

It's not enough that we have gators everywhere, now we have to worry about swarms of rhesus macaques?

Liu Xiaobo's Prison

This is the gist of the Liu Xiaobo case:

"In 2008, Mr. Liu founded the Charter 08 movement, which sought to elevate the rule of law and bring China into constitutional government: “China has many laws but no rule of law; it has a constitution but no constitutional government.” On December 10, 2008, the 60th anniversary of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights and 100 years after China’s first constitution was written, Liu released a petition signed by 303 incredibly brave Chinese people in support of the Charter. This was the final straw for the government, which arrested him immediately, and he has been imprisoned since."

Liu Xiaobo's Two Prisons

It is shameful that unlawful imprisonment happens not just in China but in countries all over the world.

More Arkanacide?

This young woman's death occurred in November of 2016. Her death occurred during the 2016 presidential campaign while she was investigating human trafficking in Haiti and did find some evidence of it via the Clinton's Caraol Complex, but it was ignored almost entirely by the Mainstream Media.

Investigator Links Clintons To Human Trafficking In Haiti. Found Dead Of “Suicide” Soon After

If you're interested, here's the bigger story on this mystery...

What Really Happened In Haiti To Monica Peterson? The WASHINGTON POST Employer Of John Podesta Does Damage Control.

I'm not surprised at the extent of the depravity of the Clintons, but I am shocked by the lack of interest by the press. I guess the media has turned like the worm that it is.

I just read this and I can't believe the gall, the nerve of this half-brained twit.

Will this POS ever shut his stupid mouth?????

Look around you... you're not president anymore.

So, in parting, I'm going to wish you and your nasty family a Happy Independence Day.


I hope you choke on the fact that so many real Americans love celebrating our holiday.

A sad case of snapping by a woman and her little dog...

Cops: Woman, 61, Strangled Dog After Minor Bite

Why did she strangle Big John Evans the day after he bit her for the third time this year?

I don't know what made the dog snap, but there are other ways to deal with an aggressive dog than choking it with its leash, then burying him in the backyard, then telling the medical staffers treating the bite that you had killed your dog.

I guess she snapped, too.

Snap happens.

Chicago Police Unable To Control Thousand-strong Gang Party Lasting Hours

The cops weren't UNABLE to stop this gang party, they were UNWILLING to stop it. There's a big difference between the two divides.

Don't support the rule of law.

Keep on supporting movements like black lives matter people and live in the world YOU created.

I sure as heck won't be visiting.

Thank You

Party Time

If I were to throw a virtual party, what would you like to drink?

I'll go first... years ago I used to drink beer and my favorites were Bud Light, Heineken, and Moosehead. I gave up drinking beer because of evil, evil, evil carbs. Nowadays, if I drink at all, it will be be a mixed drink such as a vodka and cranberry juice or a very, very dry martini.

So, my question is what would YOU like to drink at my virtual party? Be honest.

Neighborly Dog

This photo was captioned "When the neighbors adopted a dog, my Dad did this."

I don't know who to attribute this to, but it sure made me laugh when I saw it.

Somebody has a hole saw ;)


AWESOME! GOP Crowd Starts Chanting, “TRUMP! TRUMP! TRUMP!!” At Karen Handel Victory Party!

It's been a glum few days for me lately, so I'm very grateful for the cheer this victory has brought me today.

I've read a few comments about this, but this one is the best from volksford on

"We did it again Natasha...fearless leader will be pleased, this hacking is so easy!! "You said it dolink"

I think you have to be a little crazy to visit a country like North Korea and you have to be a little dense if you don't realize that you are putting money in Dear Fat Leader's pocket when you do.

Happy Father's Day

My father was the last person to care about Father's Day. He wanted his children to care about him and our mother every day, but not in a big way, nothing special, just a simple phone call was good enough. That was his way.

My Dad and I talked politics a lot, but he was also the source of many animal stories when I was a child that I think led to my lifelong love of biology and science. Thank goodness I also inherited his math genes.

He was a good father. He passed away on May 8th, and it truly hurts me to talk about him in the past tense for the first Father's Day in my life without him.

I urge you who are fortunate to have your father today, to hug him hard and appreciate all he's done for you. In keeping with my Dad's philosophy, it doesn't have to be anything special, just show him you care.

O.J. Simpson Could Be Released As Early As October

I wonder what his kids are thinking this Father's Day.

Cold Water

This is an oldie but goodie for all the germ conscious folks that worry about using cold water to clean.

John went to visit his 90 year old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area of Georgia.

After spending a great evening chatting the night away, John's grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast. However, John noticed a film like substance on his plate, and questioned his grandfather asking, "Are these plates clean?"

His grandfather replied, "They're as clean as cold water can get them. Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!"

For lunch the old man made hamburgers. Again, John was concerned about the plates as his appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked, "Are you sure these plates are clean?"

Without looking up the old man said, "I told you before, Sonny, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don't you fret, I don't want to hear another word about it!"

Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town and as he was leaving, his grandfather's dog started to growl, and wouldn't let him pass. John yelled and said, "Grandfather, your dog won't let me get to my car".

Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching on TV, the old man shouted .


Meet Coldwater...

Mean Spirits

BTW I had to search long and hard to get the above pro Trump graphic on google images. I kept getting anti Trump graphics. Thanks for that google.

Nebraska Dem Official Asked To Resign After Saying GOP Congressmen Crying On TV ‘So Funny’ Following Shooting

Chelsey Gentry-Tipton, the chair of the Nebraska Black Party Caucus refuses to resign after posting on Facebook, "Watching the congressman crying on live tv abt the trauma they experienced. Y is this so funny tho?"

This is the voice of the left.

I think if Chelsey had been a republican and she had made such a disgraceful remark about the shooting of an American congressman, don't you think she would've been fired by now?

And then there's the converse... yeah, you do the math.
