What a deliciously cool morning it was today when I took my dog for a walk. I even had to put on a flannel shirt for the first time since March, but I’m not complaining. I’ll take cool any day over the blistering summer heat. Every now and then I receive a newsletter from Brain […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on August 26, 2016 |

This may or may not be my last commentary about the political scene, but I will try my best to not rail against the candidates too often. IN RECENT NEWS The Trumster has realized he has to soften his stance on the immigration issue, as well as tone down his racist rhetoric. All that because […]

Celebrating Our Wedding Anniversary

Posted by mcm0704 on August 20, 2012 |

Today is our 47th wedding anniversary, so I will just make a quick blog entry, then spend the rest of the day with my husband. Sometimes I am amazed that we have made it this long. In terms of relationships, there isn’t a lot of longevity in my family. My parents were divorced when I […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

In an interview with Walter Scott for Parade Magazine, Jane Fonda was asked if she was surprised to fall in love again, with record producer Richard Perry. “Totally. But it doesn’t start with love, right? It starts with sex and grows into love.” I guess as long as we continue to consider sex recreation, we […]

In central Texas there is a wide area of devastation where trees are dying, as well as other vegetation. Environmentalists believe the sulfur dioxide emitted by the Fayette Power Plant is to blame. However, the plant’s operator and the state’s Environmental Regulator deny pollution is to blame for the swaths of plant devastation. Pecan groves […]
