Quick note to start - yes, I am still training and fundraising. In fact, it would be fabulous if you would throw in $30 to the cause. I pretty much need $30/day for the rest of the time to meet the minimum. Also, things are starting to hurt a little. I'll save that for another... Continue Reading →
My Favorite Podcasts
My favorite form of entertainment either while I run, walk or work has been podcasts. I'm *starting* to get into audio books too - finally subscribed to Audible for that, but for everyday feeding my brain/soul this list really teaches me and makes me laugh. Typical of me, it is a blend of sports, liberal... Continue Reading →
I’m talking about it
We interrupt the December theme of ornaments and recipes for this dark shot of reality. It's political, but it shouldn't be, so I have to get my thoughts out here. Friday's tragedy in Newtown Connecticut was devastating. The nation has reacted in sadness and with empathy for the families who have suffered and unimaginable amount... Continue Reading →
Election Result follow up
The day after an election is often spent by both sides reflecting on what they did correctly or incorrectly. Winners and losers assess what happened. Unfortunately, what has been observed over the last couple of Presidential election cycles is that one side isn't quite getting that the electorate is changing. Demographically, and socially, voters are... Continue Reading →
Oct 4 – Debate Notes
My post for today is over on my other site since it is about the debate 🙂
I didn’t hang out on twitter because I didn’t want other people’s reactions to skew my own. I also knew I couldn’t multi-task nearly well enough to read and listen closely at the same time!
So, I watching while texting with my very a-political boyfriend who follows nothing other than receiving classic chain emails and opinions from a very conservative friend and then whatever he hears from me from the left.
His first text?
“Romney is getting burned right now”
“It just seems like Obama makes more sense”
“POTUS is very calm and collected”
“Romney has a little sarcastic humor!”
I think he fell asleep after that since he’s traveling for work in the Midwest.
Anyway – here are my own notes written into a notebook:
Blue and red ties? Really? How predictable.
Obama uses his “new economic patriotism” line again. It had been mentioned that Romney had…

So unless you were hiding under a rock, you were at least marginally aware that we've just wrapped up two weeks' worth of political party conventions. The every four years parties to tell us why we should support your party. Perhaps equally obvious to you if you know me at all is that this week's... Continue Reading →

I hope she doesn’t need to get her nails done soon!
Yes, I normally avoid politics here, but this isn't necessarily all that inflammatory. Mostly it's just funny as hell (In my humble opinion) and mockery must ensue. Here's an excerpt from the LA times on a big dollar donor fund raising party help for Mitt Romney this weekend. Yes, both candidates will host these events.... Continue Reading →
Friday Beauty – in the eye of the beholder
I kept it traditional yesterday, but I can't resist sharing a couple of more politically oriented Veteran's Day today - and yes, I consider these beautiful because sometimes it takes a proper visual representation of an issue to get a very very critical point to be made: And one more traditional representation of beauty (in...

I haz a rant
On the eve of a mid term election day, and despite my absolute passion for politics and the games surrounding it, I am absolutely DONE with people who MIX politics and games – specifically, the World Series. Quit telling me who to root for in the Series based on political beliefs! Seriously – STOP IT!... Continue Reading →
