Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on January 15, 2016 |

First I’m going on the record to say I liked President Obama’s State of the Union Address Tuesday night. I think he challenged all of us to work harder for a unified nation, and only the media and certain politicians decided that Obama’s remarks were aimed at specific people. Although, we do need to call people out […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on January 8, 2016 |

Before we get into the serious stuff for this Friday, I thought you might like to see the new kitty that came to live at my house. Some nice things about this one is that it doesn’t have to be fed, doesn’t add anything to the litter box, and doesn’t join the four other felines in […]

Friday’s Funnies

Posted by mcm0704 on November 6, 2015 |

Gearing up for the Author Showcase this Saturday at the Winnsboro Center For the Arts, so I have been busy this week. Today I just have a few funnies to share, and then I will be offline for a couple of days. This first bit of nonsense… er, fun, was sent by a good friend […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on August 21, 2015 |

Because I feel so strongly about a recent post I read by Emily Frankel on her terrific blog, Em’s Talkery, I want to share the link and just a bit of what she wrote. Her topic was displaced people. Twelve year-old Atahurahman, crammed in a boat for 3½ months with 400 people, had to sit […]

There has been quite a controversy over the death of Sandra Bland in a Texas jail, where she was taken after a traffic stop in Waller County. The dash cam video has gone viral, and it is clear that what should have been a routine stop, escalated out of control quickly, in part because of […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends – Say “No” to GMO

Posted by mcm0704 on July 24, 2015 |

That said, I wanted to alert you to the fact that a revised Monsanto Protection Act bill sponsored by Republican Congressman Mike Pompeo, would not only prevent states from enacting their own GMO labeling laws, but it would go even further by nullifying all existing restrictions on GMO crops already on the books. This bill […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on July 3, 2015 |

All the flap about the Confederate Flag and other symbols of the time in our history that condoned slavery, makes me wonder just how far are we going to go to the extreme in dodging sensitivity. That era was not one of our more honorable ones. Neither was the time that we pushed the Native […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on June 26, 2015 |

In the wake of the tragedy that took place in Charleston last week, journalistic and social media sites have been barraged with comments about what to do. Prominent in the shouting has been support for open-carry, while opponents point out all the dangers of having people walking around with guns. I don’t know the answer. […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

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 […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on May 8, 2015 |

One of the things I didn’t miss on my vacation was the nightly news. Through social media and tidbits of news during breakfast at the motels, I did know about the tragedy in Nepal and other items of importance, but I didn’t have to listen to the nightly news reporters and anchors giving their spin […]
