A Missed Opportunity for Anti-maskers

I have been ranting a LOT about masks lately. I live in Wisconsin and on August 1st our Governor finally issued a mask mandate. When I read the headline in the newspaper it brought me so much joy I can’t even tell you. His action will be life-changing for me. You see, I’m a at-riskContinue reading “A Missed Opportunity for Anti-maskers”

Seven Things that I Love (8-10-2020)

1. This videoclip from a 1996 episode of Sesame Street with Patrick Stewart (aka Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the Starship Enterprise) where he helps the Count get ‘Number One’ back in his(?) proper place. Those who know me know that I’ve been a HUGE fan of Sir Patrick for decades (that voice), and I’m aContinue reading “Seven Things that I Love (8-10-2020)”

Seven Things That I Love (8-3-2020)

Well, I’m officially changing the regular Monday ‘5 Things that I Love” to ‘7 Things that I Love” since I’ve consistently had more than five things for the past few months.

Mosquito Slut Shaming?

Last summer I went to several outdoor events that resulted in my having numerous mosquito bites, the majority of which were on my ankles – itchy! The worst part was that Burt’s Bees discontinued the only product I’ve ever found that works on bug bites. Damn I miss this stuff… (I did find a differentContinue reading “Mosquito Slut Shaming?”

Back into the Fray

For the past few months I’ve only had the psychological capacity to write my “Five Things I Love” posts. Many of those posts didn’t contain much text, they were, let’s face it, simple listicles. It’s the stress that has been doing me in. Just like most everyone, I’m mentally exhausted. It’s been nearly a decadeContinue reading “Back into the Fray”

1. Hamilton Mask-Up! by the Holderness Family – Do you have Disney+? Did you get it just so you could watch the new Hamilton movie?

I was lucky enough to see HamiltonContinue reading “Five Things I Love (7-13-2020)”
