Happy Thanksgiving, to one and all.
We will be out of town visiting my husband’s family, well, my family, so I will not be posting for the rest of this week.
I hope you have a happy and safe holiday weekend.

The story, if you can’t watch video: Liberal bloggers, TV [...]

I can’t bring myself to blog about politics today. I am sick, yet again. I sure hope this is not an indication of how the entire winter will be. This is my sixth cold in two months, the second major one. Ugh!

One thing that I find especially irritating about political debate is the games people try to play with language.

Now that it has been two weeks since the election, I suppose I should post some sort of post-election reflections on the Republican Party.

I have nothing to blog about today. Well, that’s not quite true, but since I am not going to say anything about what I think the Obama Administration and the Democratic Congress will do come January, I have a two month down period of sorts. I want to use this time to do [...]
