Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on February 10, 2014 |

Monday Morning Musings

One nice thing to interfere has been ongoing enthusiasm for the Winnsboro history book that I wrote with our local historian. Here I am with Bill Jones at a recent signing event. I […]

One couple in Fort Worth, Texas are missing the home that belonged to the husband’s grandmother. It was demolished by the city when a demolition crew went to the wrong address. The house next to it was the one that was supposed to be razed after being condemned. The owners were not there at the […]

Tomorrow is the day. The Nite of Comedy plays on the stage at the Winnsboro Center for the arts in Winnsboro, Texas.

So, Governor Good-Hair as we sometimes refer to our esteemed Texas governor, has done it again. Rick Perry recently vetoed two bipartisan ethics bills and rescinded state funding for the prosecutors unit that is investigating his cancer research fund.  In an article in The Dallas Morning News written by Christy Hoppe and Robert T Garrett […]

In a recent column in The Dallas Morning News, freelance writer Tracy Begland wrote about how the two sides of our brains work together to help us in our creative endeavors.

I’m Officially Old

Posted by mcm0704 on October 12, 2009 |

The other day I mentioned to my husband that I hardly know any of the celebrities mentioned on entertainment shows or written about in the entertainment section of the newspaper. “I wonder if that is part of the official rite of passage for the Social Security set,” I said. He laughed and said he noticed […]

More on Tucker Max

Posted by mcm0704 on October 9, 2009 |

Last week I wrote about the column about Tucker Max in the Dallas Morning News by Jaclyn Friedman, a writer and activist. She criticized him for promoting a sexual philosophy where women are “insulted, tricked, coerced, traded, and then discarded.” There was a flurry of responses to her column, some supporting her stance and others […]
