Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on April 15, 2011 |

 There is some talk of raising the speed limit in Texas to 85MPH. Silly me, I thought that was already the speed limit. If I’m driving 70 to 75 MPH, cars zoom by me all the time. The Dallas Zoo was briefly charging a giraffe-greeting fee until enough patrons complained. Apparently the zoo was trying […]

The Food Police

Posted by mcm0704 on April 13, 2011 |

I’m not a huge fan of the Civil Liberties Union. Like so many organizations and agencies their original purpose was noble, but they have taken too many issues to too many extremes. But I do wish they would get in a frenzy about the latest trends to help children eat healthy. I heard on the […]

Since I resigned as Managing Editor for WinnsboroToday.com, I am not as connected to the news as I used to be. Part of my daily updates at the online magazine included the latest news blurbs from several sources. Now I don’t check those sources daily, and I don’t watch very much broadcast news, either.

Drowning Ruth – a novel

Posted by mcm0704 on April 6, 2011 |

I know this is not my normal book review day, but I just finished this book today and wanted to share some things about it, both from a reader’s standpoint and a writer’s. First of all, Drowning Ruth, was an amazing story. It was published in 2000 and I am sorry that I didn’t read […]

As I write this a storm is brewing here in East Texas and I will have to close down my computer soon. When we have lightening, I have to unplug everything electronic because we frequently have an unwanted visitor come through the wire. Since I don’t have time to write a blog this morning, I […]

Say it isn’t so: The comic strip Baby Blues had a story about the liltle girl, Zoe, being invited to a “shopping party” for a friend’s birthday. For the party, everyone goes to a mall and the birthday girl gets to pick out presents which the guests then buy the gifts. Wanda, Zoe’s mother comments, […]
