Politics – At What Cost

This image has nothing to do with my post today, I just thought it would be nice to start off seeing something pretty. This flower just bloomed on a plant at the side of my driveway that I suspected was not a weed when I was clearing along the fence. I’m glad I left it […]

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 […]

Absurdities Abound

Posted by mcm0704 on May 24, 2019 |

Before writing about the absurd deals that were made between our erstwhile leader here in the United States and the German financial institution, Deutsche Bank, I thought it would be nice to share a few pictures from my little corner of the world. This dog greets me and my dog every morning when we’re walking. […]

Bias in Journalism?

Posted by mcm0704 on April 6, 2018 |
