Disgraceful Helsinki Summit

Posted by mcm0704 on July 20, 2018 |

Before getting into the heart of this blog, I wanted to share a couple of pretty pictures with you. Looking at some of the beauty around us can help us keep the stress levels down. When I go for a walk here in the city where I now live, I don’t see nearly as many […]

Friday’s Odds And Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on July 6, 2018 |

This is my first normal day in my office in just over a week. It was June 28 when I got the last two blog posts written and scheduled. I had company from out of town through Tuesday, then Wednesday I got my dog, and yesterday I slept off and on most of the day. […]

A History Lesson from Windy

Posted by mcm0704 on May 11, 2018 |

It’s a busy end of the week and weekend for me, so I am going to let Slim Randles entertain us with another posting from the Mule Barn Truck Stop, but first just a couple of things that are bothering me. I was listening to the confirmation hearing for Gina Haspel to head the CIA, […]

Friday’s Odds And Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on April 27, 2018 |

The couple who bought my house in Winnsboro were kind enough to post pictures of the roses growing on that property. I always enjoyed stopping to smell the roses as I headed out for a walk in the mornings, and one bush did produce the prettiest roses. Of course, I don’t remember the name of […]

Who Has the Political Power?

Posted by mcm0704 on February 26, 2018 |

  Last week I listened to a Podcast that compared the recent responses to the mass shootings to what happened following the 2012 tragedy in Sandyhook. In both cases, survivors and families of those killed made endless pleas to Congress to ban assault weapons. In both cases, Congress refused. The podcast included clips of the […]

No More School Shootings

Posted by mcm0704 on February 19, 2018 |

My heart is weighed down with sadness over the horrible loss of lives in Parkland, Florida on Wednesday.  So many – too many – young people had their futures taken away in the flash of gunfire by a disturbed gunman who obtained an assault weapon much too easily. I heard on The Daily Podcast Friday […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on February 5, 2018 |

Did you watch the Superbowl last night? I did not, as I don’t have television reception here in my new house. I don’t even have Internet service yet, so all my online business is happening with the help of the hotspot on my iPhone. My computer has built in wi-fi, so once my office was […]

Inspiration and Fishing

Posted by mcm0704 on October 16, 2017 |

Bear with me, and you will see what inspiration and fishing have in common. Or maybe not. It’s going to be a bit subtle, so you might have to put your thinking caps on. First the Inspiration Which I especially like because now you can know that I don’t always listen to the horrible news […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on May 22, 2017 |

This past Saturday was the launch party for the new book, Reflections of Winnsboro, that I helped our Winnsboro historian, Bill Jones, write. We had a grand time, and it was so much fun for me to listen to Bill visit with his many long-time friends who came to help celebrate. We received lots of […]
