Be on the Alert

Why? Why do you want to live life continually “on the alert” for things which may or may not, happen? Go gives a flying shit anyway (as if shit could fly)? I am drawing the line on alerts. I just got an alert from my bank telling me “you have no alerts at this time.”Continue reading “Be on the Alert”

Somebody Please Explain it to Me

Why is it? We are still in the unpacking stage and will be for some time, but I open up two boxes that I specifically took the time and effort to write on in BIG letters: TRASH—KAREN DO NOT PACK!!! Please note that there were three exclamation points written in bold on both boxes (onContinue reading “Somebody Please Explain it to Me”

NIMBY

Here we go again. The global spotlight shines brightly once again on the United States as we stumble all over ourselves and try to find a solution to our growing population. It is not the normal 6% population increase of which I speak. We get there just by waking up in the morning. No, itContinue reading “NIMBY”

Inefficiency

I can’t stand it. The idea invokes failure. Who are the idiot architects in the grocery store game who are responsible for planning out the best (most efficient) place to put in the restrooms and pharmacies? “Put them farthest away so injured and sick people have to limp their infirmed bodies all the way toContinue reading “Inefficiency”

One More Time

Today at 10:30 EST I check into the hospital for a very short stay (I hope) as the vascular surgeon will be cleaning out my right corraded artery and putting yet another stent in my beautiful brown body. That makes a total of 9 and three of those were lost to amputation. I know IContinue reading “One More Time”

Natural Selection?

Why is it, when everything seems to be going great on planet Earth, that Mother Nature rises up, slaps us in the chops and reminds us that our pass in this sphere of existence is all too temporary? The latest death toll spread over 8 different states, is 64. And that is just ONE tropicalContinue reading “Natural Selection?”

Did Hell Freeze Over?

I know I have been a little groggy with medications, but what did I miss? Ronaldo was benched. Messi was traded. Now I am not an expert, but you know that silly little thing won’t stop me from chiming in. In a year when trade rumors and gossip are filled with the biggest names inContinue reading “Did Hell Freeze Over?”

Second Chances

There are no second chances. We are undeterred as we push forward with our second offer on a house. We were really hoping the inspection done this morning would be free of any major problems which would cost us, but alas, we have put a repair list together for the sellers to address, or notContinue reading “Second Chances”

Culling the Herd

As the Covid virus continues to morph into more transmittable deadly strains like the Delta variant, once again crippling our nation, there are still people (more than half of the US population) who are not getting vaccinated. Fine. More for the rest of us. I wouldn’t kiss your ass to get a shot, because frankly,Continue reading “Culling the Herd”
