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 […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on January 11, 2016 |

This picture has nothing to do with the post today. I just thought we could all use a reminder of summer on this cold, January day. Lots of really frigid temperatures across the country, and even here in Texas it has been below freezing at night. And now just a bit of trivia to get Monday started on a […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

I found these mushrooms growing by an old stump in my back pasture and thought they were very pretty. With the sun shining on them, it looked as if they had been gilded. I wish I could have captured that shimmer of gold, but pictures I take with my phone never look exactly like the […]

Good Monday morning. I trust everyone had a great weekend and are energized for the work week ahead. What I’m Reading: Her Sister by Karen Rose Smith. This is book seven of her Search For Love series, but the first one I have tried. It is a romance with some mystery and suspense, and so […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 26, 2014 |

Hello, my name is Maryann, and I am a parent who spanked her children. Primarily with my hand and sometimes with a hot-wheel track – my boys can attest to how that stung without injuring them – but never with a weapon that would bruise them or make them bleed. And corporal punishment was reserved […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on August 29, 2014 |

A recent article in the Dallas Morning News about taking on too much responsibility by Jonathan Look made me stop and think about the difference between responsibility and “response-ability.” He wrote, “If we have the trappings of success, but through our lack of ‘response-ability’ have eliminated the time to enjoy them, has this pressure made […]

In keeping with my theme of celebrating strong women, I want to acknowledge the birthday of Althea Gibson. An American tennis player and professional golfer, she was born in South Carolina on August 25, 1927 and was the first black athlete of either gender to cross the color line of international tennis. In 1956 she […]

States such as Michigan and New Jersey and New York are going to extremes to collect state income taxes. For instance some trucks hauling goods have actually been stopped in those states and held until the corporation pays income taxes on what is being carried through the state. Local revenue agents have seized out-of-state trucks […]

A recent headline in the op/ed section of The Dallas Morning News caught my eye: Does porn harm kids? (By the way, I really don’t like the new trend in headline writing that no longer capitalizes all the words. But maybe that’s because I am now considered a dinosaur among journalists.) Anyway, I found the […]
