About Me

I've been a female working a "man's job" (mechanical engineer), stay at home Mom (6 kids), working Mom (6 kids to put through college), unemployed, underemployed, temporarily employed and now working from home! We live on an old, small farm with 2 dogs and 2 cats in the house, variable number of chickens out in the yard.

Further adventures in having recent hearing loss - tinnitus

I'm very lucky with my tinnitus - the low level background sounds like a summer's night -insect noises or little frogs.

My left ear has me convinced there is a cricket in the room. My right ear makes me think I'm hearing a windchime in the background. So, nothing too intrusive. Ironically, I can't hear actual windchimes any more.

People keep telling me that Hillary has always opposed (whatever) or that Hillary

has always supported (whatever).

Here's my problem; if these are all long held positions, why don't I know that already? Digging through old, relatively obscure speeches and statements for proof is not impressive. I really can't think of any particular issue associated with Hillary outside of being the first female President. If the Fates had chosen differently, Palin could have been our first female President. Somehow, the gender of the President is not my first concern. I've grown up in the age of the first female this or that, but women's wages are still at 70% men's. There seem to be too many important issues on which Clinton's response is "me,too".
