Finally Fall & Importing Japanese Urushi

The weather has been so wonky.  Ninety degree days when it's supposed to be fall.  Last week it was still hitting 100. But yesterday?  Ooh yes, it felt like fall.  For the first time.  At around 72 degrees, with a crisp breeze it actually felt fall'ish. Thank you all (the few) that read this blog.  … Continue reading Finally Fall & Importing Japanese Urushi

Dunch and Bill Gates

I just finished watching a three episode docu-series-kinda-thing on Netflix called, Inside Bill's Brain: Decoding Bill Gates. I was told to watch it by Grace and she nudged (nagged) me toward watching this show.  I finally succumbed and watched. Wow, it was really good!  I ended up binging all three episodes and for the last … Continue reading Dunch and Bill Gates

That Was Some Boring Debate But…

Did you all see Biden lose his teeth? That was pretty wild and kind of sad, and you have to feel badly for someone who has to stand for three hours, talking nonsensically about how blacks can't parent, and they need someone to step in and play record players and... speak words (?) until they … Continue reading That Was Some Boring Debate But…

Time to Listen to Normal People

Let me say, there are a lot of politicians - yes, professional politicians - trying to make you think after Trump you need to settle on a lifetime politician like Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders. Now, I would prefer Bernie over old Joe.  The reason being:  when I watch Uncle Joe after working with elderly, I … Continue reading Time to Listen to Normal People

The Winners & the Rest from 2nd Debates

Yes, I watched the second round of Democratic Debates moderated much better, but still with questionable questions from CNN.  Questions like, "Why would you be able to beat Joe Biden?"  "Do you like Kamala's hair?"  Okay, so one of those questions was not asked. But honestly, I really had to ponder whether I wanted to blog … Continue reading The Winners & the Rest from 2nd Debates
