About Me

I am 57, retired teacher and illustrator, life-long dem., activist, union member. Also I do not use social media and I'm technologically retarded. I love dogs, rock music and swearing (a lot). My 17 year old "puppy" died on June 2, 2020. She grew up listening to Animals (Pink Floyd). She has kept me sane through the tRump years, not easy, and has given me endless love, companionship, kisses and tail wags.

Journal Archives

Why doesn't MSNBC mention James Comey's big mouth right after

the Access Hollywood tape is what caused so much damage? If Comey hadn't done that the sex tape revelations would have been enough for tRump to lose 2 weeks later.

Restaurant Impossible. The Trump-burger is on the menu

for $14 too!

I started to watch a new episode of Restaurant Impossible where he re-vamped a dying diner " Leah's Korner Kafe" in Colemam, MI. I always read the current reviews on-line first. It turns out that there is something called the Trump Burger. After reading the reviews post-make over I learned that some people left this place without even ordering since they read that a "Trump Burger" was on the menu.

It describes the burger and all it comes with then at the end it says "Making America Great One Burger At A Time".




It didn't mention if it is served with one or two bottles of ketchup. That is how tRump would make over the interior, Jackson Pollock style.

CA taxes compared to TX and FL

"How do California’s taxes rank compared to other states like Florida or Texas? Take a look"


"There are two ways to view California’s tax situation."

"But there’s some good news: Californians’ tax rates overall are lower than the national average. However, high incomes and property values drive up the taxes."

"Its combined local and state tax rate is 8.97%, WalletHub found. That includes income, property, sales and other taxes."

"Florida’s combined rate is 8.21%. Texas’ is 12.73%."

"The real estate taxes in Texas are the sixth highest nationwide, amounting to over $4,200 annually on average. California’s rate ranks 36th"

The Oscars 2023 In Memoriam

"Gone but certainly not forgotten. Take a moment to look back in remembrance of the artists and filmmakers we lost in 2022-2023.."


Robert Blake wasn't included.

Jane Fonda In 5 Acts, free documentary

%The film follows the life, career, and activism of Jane Fonda. Robert Redford, Lily Tomlin, Troy Garity, Paula Weinstein, Ted Turner, Sam Waterston, Malcolm and Vivian Valdim appear in the film."

"Girl next door, sex kitten, fitness tycoon, high-profile activist, Oscar(R)-winner. Jane Fonda has lived a life marked by controversy, tragedy and transformation--and she's done it all in the public eye. This documentary draws on 21 hours of recent interviews with Fonda, who speaks candidly and frankly about her life, loves, causes and missteps."

Latest winter storm boosts California's astounding snowpack; drought conditions improving


"New data shows California’s already epic snowpack, not surprisingly, has improved even more thanks to last week’s winter storm that buried the Sierra Nevada mountain range under several additional feet of snow."

"Thanks to California’s extraordinarily wet and snowy winter, several regions of the Golden State including the Central Coast and Central Sierra, are no longer considered to be in a drought."

"Water managers, however, caution that no single wet winter could erase the challenges caused by years of extreme drought."

“While winter storms have helped the snowpack and reservoirs, groundwater basins are much slower to recover. Many rural areas are still experiencing water supply challenges, especially communities that rely on groundwater supplies which have been depleted due to prolonged drought,” said Jeanine Jones, Interstate Resources Manager at DWR.

Steve Martin on SNL...King Tut

When I need a laugh and this comes to my rescue. Father Guido Sarducci and "Find The Pope In The Pizza" never gets old either.


Why are most of the US mass murderers men?

Is this a mental, physical or emotional issue that we are not addressing or are we choosing to ignore the obvious facts from thousands of years? Is this a gender issue that has no reasoning behind it? Is it mainly a physical problem? If it is then how are we to correct it?


Cardiac issues. My heart has grown 3 sizes

Or possibly even more....sort of like The Grinch. My heart issues are a direct result of DU members giving me too many hearts, more than I deserve or expected. Thank you!!!

Doesn't Harris look like she is genuinely beaming?!?

The contrast with Kevin is like night and day.
