Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on July 1, 2016 |

Before getting into the usual Friday fare, I want to let you know that for the next three weeks blog entries will be sparse. I’m getting ready for the two-week drama camp at the Winnsboro Center For the Arts, so my days will be filled with kids and art and drama and fun for the […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

On Monday,  I shared a few pictures of the glorious cloud formations that I get to enjoy here in my little corner of East Texas, and I have a couple more today. These are some thunderheads that formed the other day, but unfortunately passed on by without leaving anything behind. Still, they were lovely to […]

Thought I would start us off with a chuckle today. I saw this on Facebook and thought it was a hoot. Don’t we all feel like this some days? And I’m especially feeling it this morning after hearing about another mass shooting. Is it ever going to end? For some time I have been saying […]

This will be short today as I have to limit my computer time for a few days, so lets start with something to make you smile. This is a picture of a moon flower from my back flowerbed.  The plant came to Texas with me when I moved here from Omaha, NE, and I was […]

What on earth is going on in Hungary? Just reading snippets of news it sounds like a revisit of Nazi Germany. This from Reuters today:   Hungarian police halted a train packed with migrants bound for the Austrian border and tried to force them to disembark in a town with a detention camp on Thursday, […]

Because I feel so strongly about a recent post I read by Emily Frankel on her terrific blog, Em’s Talkery, I want to share the link and just a bit of what she wrote. Her topic was displaced people. Twelve year-old Atahurahman, crammed in a boat for 3½ months with 400 people, had to sit […]

There has been quite a controversy over the death of Sandra Bland in a Texas jail, where she was taken after a traffic stop in Waller County. The dash cam video has gone viral, and it is clear that what should have been a routine stop, escalated out of control quickly, in part because of […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends – Say “No” to GMO

Posted by mcm0704 on July 24, 2015 |

That said, I wanted to alert you to the fact that a revised Monsanto Protection Act bill sponsored by Republican Congressman Mike Pompeo, would not only prevent states from enacting their own GMO labeling laws, but it would go even further by nullifying all existing restrictions on GMO crops already on the books. This bill […]

It’s been a busy week for me, but not with my usual busyness at the art center. This week I have been working on the rewrite of Evelyn Evolving, the book I’m writing based on my mother’s life. I received some excellent feedback from Kathryn Craft, a writer and developmental editor, and I am making […]

There’s an awful lot of fear-mongering going on in the United States and too much of it has settled in Texas. Our new governor parlayed people’s fears into votes, and he continues to play on the fear. I couldn’t believe it when I heard him say that he suspects the summer training exercises by the […]
