Ha!  It figures that when I finally wrote a retort to anti-homeschoolers, I used “do” instead of “due” in the title.
What can I say?  I am extremely sleep deprived and it was getting late.  We’re all human.
Still, I feel a little stupid.

Another day, another uninformed anti-homeschool rant. *yawn*
I usually ignore them; I have more important things to do with my time than try to reason with a bunch of ignorant bigots with impenetrable prejudices.
This time, though, I would like to get a few things off my chest. (Mostly, this comes from the comments on the [...]

Rumor has it that Peter Shumlin will not run for Lieutenant Governor. I wonder if it has anything to do with the revelation that he’s not ready for prime time.

I personally try to refrain from using profanity on this blog, so I thought I should warn you that there is a lot of cussin’ on this here clip, but, man, is it funny.
At least I thought so. Maybe it is the fact that I am many hours behind on sleep. You be [...]

Stimulus check that is.
Well, in the mail soon, anyway. The first payments go out May 2. You can view the whole stimulus payment schedule at the IRS website.
A while back, Rep. Peter Welch sent out a constituent mailing about the stimulus checks, among other things. [...]

Recently, I started reading a few new blogs and one of them is almost too cerebral for me.
I mean, I am capable of following it, but sometimes it almost seems like too much work.
Perhaps it is the trio of little savages I have constantly wreaking havoc behind me while I read, or perhaps it is [...]

I am not much of a Hillary fan.
I mean, I would be if she didn’t want to raise taxes, institute universal health care, infringe on our Second Amendment rights, pander to liberal special interest groups, and, you know, if she wasn’t a Democrat.
Even so, this clip of her on The Colbert Report is funny.

I know that this is atypical for this blog, but I wanted to share a review I wrote of a new book by Joyce Meyer that is coming out next Tuesday. This was originally published at All Things Hold Together.
I struggle with American Christianity. There is the inclination to focus on what God [...]

Mary Grabar, who is of Slovenian descent, reflects on Barack Obama’s “bitter” remarks from the perspective of Central and Eastern European immigrants.
It’s not pretty.
You sneer at those like us who put our faith in God and not in those like you who would presume to know what’s good for us and tell us what to [...]

The other night, I was on my way to the Hannaford supermarket in South Burlington and I stopped at K-Mart to look at a couple of things.
On my way out to my car, a man stopped me and told me that he locked his keys in his car and wondered if I happened to be [...]
