Posted by mcm0704 on July 6, 2020 |

Well, I did manage to drum up a little bit of a patriotic attitude for my birthday. I dressed in red white and blue. 🙂 And even though I’d been thinking I might be alone on the Fourth, I ended up having some company, which brightened the day considerably. The morning started with a trip […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on May 11, 2020 |

I had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. Even though social distancing guidelines prevented hugs or kisses, it was still great to have company both Saturday and Sunday. And the whole weekend was a celebration of flowers. This arrangement with the bright yellow flowers came from my son and his family in Austin. The lily in […]

Friday Odds And Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on April 17, 2020 |

Happy Friday everyone. I hope it is a good day for you. It’s warming up again here in Texas after a bit of a cold snap on Tuesday and Wednesday. For those couple of days, temperatures were in the mid-thirties at night, and I thought I might have to cover my plants again. Luckily, it […]

In the spirit of social distancing, I’m sending out a virtual hug to everyone, via this cute image a friend of mine sent. I love it. Before sharing links with the latest stats on the spread of nasty corona virus, I want to share this from The Daily Podcast. On this morning’s episode Carl Zimmer, […]

Bias in Journalism?

Posted by mcm0704 on April 6, 2018 |

This was the banner for the online community magazine where I was Managing Editor for many years. The man who started the publication wanted to make sure that the news for our small town was reported fairly and without bias, which, unfortunately isn’t the case for so many news outlets.

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.

No More School Shootings

Posted by mcm0704 on February 19, 2018 |

I heard on The Daily Podcast Friday […]
