We’re Saved! This is Why We Need #Emergency UBI

Woo, let's celebrate the fact there was this awesome HR 6201 Bill passed in Congress.  It is aptly titled, Families First Coronavirus Response Act.  (Oh yeah, still needs to get through the Senate.) I began skimming the bill, and then began to slowly realize... You have to have a family with kids first, and only … Continue reading We’re Saved! This is Why We Need #Emergency UBI

Will I Die from the Corona?

Whoa, why so morbid? It is just a beer.  It's not my favorite, and practically my least favorite beer.  I prefer a tasty German or Austrian beer - even Japanese biru. But Corona...?  Not my favorite.  It tastes watered down and weak - bland. Oh, yeah, I actually meant the coronavirus.  I was looking over … Continue reading Will I Die from the Corona?

The Holiday with Kona Bean

My new granddaughter, Kona Bean, has already stolen mine and her uncle's heart.  She was an unexpected blessing. We almost sent her back.  Mike and Sarah almost sent her back. It was so soon after losing our little girl Fuzzy, and it was difficult because this new little puppy has special needs.  She was kept … Continue reading The Holiday with Kona Bean

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…

Inequality and Equality

"The truest form of inequality is to make unequal things equal." - Aristotle I have been considering the meaning of this quote.  My son the philosopher states this often, and so I have been pondering the meaning. On Philosoblog they stated: "Equality of opportunity is difficult to achieve, but it is (in my belief) a worthy … Continue reading Inequality and Equality

I Am Verklempt because…

...of this.  Please go here for only the speech, but if you want Paget's commentary please watch below. https://youtu.be/hoGm5HJ8_KY #Yang2020 #YangGang Yes, more Yang info.  This was amazing.  I love how Paget Kagy continues to post these videos, but honestly he is the only candidate - ONLY - speaking of what is reality.  I am … Continue reading I Am Verklempt because…

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
