Posted by mcm0704 on May 29, 2015 |

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on May 22, 2015 |

There’s an awful lot of fear-mongering going on in the United States and too much of it has settled in Texas. Our new governor parlayed people’s fears into votes, and he continues to play on the fear. I couldn’t believe it when I heard him say that he suspects the summer training exercises by the […]

The Festival to Beat All Festivals

Posted by mcm0704 on May 20, 2015 |

My friend Slim Randles is back as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with another of Delbert’s harebrained, er, novel ideas. A good festival can bring folks to town, but this idea touches on the absurd.

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on May 18, 2015 |

This past weekend was a wonderful musical experience with two concerts at the Winnsboro Center for the Arts by Peter Yarrow and his son, Christopher Yarrow. What amazing talents! I was taken back to my younger days when the music of Peter, Paul and Mary awakened the idealist and activist in me. What heady days […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on May 15, 2015 |

On my recent vacation I saw lots of wind turbines in Montana, Wyoming, Kansas and Nebraska. Since the wind goes sweeping across those plains, it seemed logical that wind farms would be prevalent there, but I didn’t know that my home state of Texas is actually the top wind producer in the United States. Now […]
