Little Pink Commie Houses

What happened to Magpie Tales!!!?


Why are people so afraid to open the biscuit cans? I don't think anyone has lost a hand from popping them open.


Ha!, I knew it was B.S. From Happenings magazine, Scott Lager gives up the scoop on speed reading.Normal reading is 200-230 words per minute. Some claim to be able to read 1000-2000 wpm but with 50% comprehension.

I remember watching one of those info shows where a young man claimed to be able to read 'War and Peace,' in an hour. Such a load of you know what.


Oooh, it's heating up on Facebook over Trump vs. Hillary. I am appalled and frightened by the number of old neighborhood hoodies who love Trump. So sickening. I'm off FB after elections. Yes, I'm going to go, "Nyah,nyah, nyah nyah."


Speaking of the right. I'm a fan of John Mellencamp. I see he is going to be at the Chicago Theatre. I also just read Johnny is very, very, conservative. Damn. Now, do I go see him cause I do like his music, or, do I stay home and paint my nails because I will be thinking of him as he struts to Pink Houses as a narrow- minded....???

Bloody Digits

Lately I have been dreading going to sleep. I've been having the most awful dreams. Many have been regarding sweet little animals who turn into raving maniacs. One was about some cute little thing who suddenly grabbed my thumb and started to bite. I could see my skin coming off and it was a bloody mess. I do dream in color which made it all the worse. I'm one who takes my dreams as a sign of something. Goofy, since I don't believe in a higher being, yet, I still wonder if we really have free will or are just a game to someone?

Anyhoo, I want to dream about George and me, or, flowers, candy....not bloody digits.

Maybe I'll watch Mary Poppins tonight.

Oh, Happy Day! Congrats to Bob Dylan for winning Nobel Prize.

What do you think he will say?


Some of my faves...

More Jibber Jabber

Do you still buy magazines? I used to buy Vanity Fair and Martha Stewart, Living on occasion, but, ZOWIE! the prices of a mag is the same as buying a book.


Do you think people who ignore what is happening on the political field are ignorant, or smart? I see several people refuse to look at any more info/ads... regarding the debacle of the century.


I really want to go to Paris. Oh, passport, passport...


Da Cubs


Still loving the Big Bang.

Clowns. "Literally"

I haven't seen any. Course, I'm usually in my house before the dark. So, have you seen these clowns? As my three year old granddaughter likes to say, "Literally." I'm not sure about this yet. These clowns  are definitely taking a risk, especially in the backwater towns of America, where people don't take a shine to anything humorous. I also wonder if it is really happening at all, like those supposed razors in Halloween candy?

I say let it run its course. People will get bored.

Yeah, I think this is clever and hilarious.

Thingy, Elon and Aliens

Simulation hypothesis is really beyond my realm of intellect. I'm sort of guessing here on what this is...

Are the smart ones saying that we (Earthlings) are no more than an experiment, observed by alien creatures?

I have thought about this. Anyone with a brain has probably considered this, but, for this to be true...

YIKES!!!! Such a scary thought, but really, not impossible.

That is, if I am understanding this theory.

I found Elon Musk on an episode of Big Bang Theory. Zowie! He's sexy and super smart.

Here's the simulation-argument

Something to think about, I guess, unless we are just rats in a cage, then who gives a shit, yet, I do....

What's a Hero?

I'm pretty sure I won't be seeing the movie, 'Sully.' I don't care for disaster movies...well, real disaster movies. I like the Will Smith sort, where cities explode. But, this, nah. I haven't seen Titanic either.

Now, this is where I lose followers by speaking my mind. No filter here, folks. But, why do they call the pilot a hero? He did what he was trained to do, albeit, a truly stunning act. I always considered a hero to be someone who risks his/her own life for the sake of others.

I Googled the meaning of, 'hero.' (Typically a man!? For shame, Google)

a person, typically a man, who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.

Okay, I guess that describes lots of people, even Sullenberger.

But, not in my book.

My heroes...

Rosa Parks. Took a woman (even though men took credit for this) to defy the back of the bus standard. She had time to rethink her plan, yet, she still went through with it. Takes courage.

French Resistance. True romantics in my head, although it must have been pure hell, and so much fear to do what they did.

Every person who got on a leaky raft for the sake of their children, for a better life. They risk everything for what they probably realize will not be a much better life because of the hate, the bigotry aimed at them. Plus, they leave their home, broken as it is.

Victoria Soto

Every person who tried to protect another human being from mad men who hunt and kill and hide behind assault weapons because they have been slighted in some way or are just mentally sick.

Those who resisted Hitler. Those who speak out against Trump...

Yeah, you get it.

Reality Check

Seriously, the guy is coo-coo, and Clinton was on top.

If anyone can still defend this nut, you belong in the basket with him.

Oh, Auntie Em!

 Oh, hey there. Been on a vacay. Nothing like sitting in a car for nine hours, looking at trees and rocks. Headed to the East coast to visit the matriarch of the family. After rest, another seven hours to reach our destination.

 It sure is clean on the roads. No garbage sharing space with the wildflowers. Then, heading back it was just as lovely until we hit Indiana. Besides the litter lining the highways, it was slo-mo until we got out of Chi-town. Great, but I'm glad to be back.

 Can it really be true Hillary and numnuts are in a close race? Just so hard to fathom. Plenty of lawn signs for Trump, although, I have not seen one sign for Clinton. Is it me or does Bill look weak and tired? Hmmm... Scary.

 Murder hits too close to home. My niece's cousin was murdered by a bastard who lured her into thinking he was a good Samaritan when he offered her a ride after she got a flat tire. I don't know all the details except family called police to let them know she was missing when she didn't return home. Because of her past with drugs and run ins with police, they didn't take seriously her family's concern. It wasn't until days later a woman called 911, whispering to dispatcher that she was being held captive. The creep was asleep and she had managed to get his phone. When police arrived (according to sources, 20 minutes later) they found the woman. The serial killer eventually led them to three bodies. Unfortunately, my niece's cousin was one of the murdered. Just an awful, horrible incident.

Let's end this on a bright note. What could be cooler than a cat and a horse as friends.

Well, what the hell. Guess it's not so weird. Went to Youtube and found a plethora of cats and horses being chummy.

Old School

Hey, Hillary, do ya think you and your crew can stop lying? It's bad enough we have to deal with Mr psycho, I just want some truthiness, ok? You knew Friday you were suffering from pneumonia. Why the secrecy? So old school. Time to woman up. We are in big doo doo, America.
