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 [...]

I finally got around to updating my conservative blog roll (in the side bar under, They’re Right) with some of the blogs in my feed reader that I have come to love.
You might notice that the conservative Vermont blogs are listed both under They’re Right and Vermont Bloggers. That’s because I wanted to make [...]

Every time I watch Power Rangers in Space with my 4-year-old son, I crack up laughing when I hear Zhane say, “Mega Winger online.”
You know, because the lefties use the phrase “mega winger” sometimes to describe right-wingers.
Too bad I didn’t know about Power Rangers in Space when I was starting a political blog. I [...]

Well, not quite, but I do have a couple of comments.
First, the Moran Redevelopment passed! Woo-hoo!
I totally supported this plan. In an ideal world, the city would have sold the property to a developer and washed its hands of the whole thing (and watched the tax dollars roll in once it was developed). [...]

The Free Press had a story today about a UVM Physics professor named Dennis Clougherty which was a terrific article if you are interested in that sort of stuff.
I was kind of surprised that they had such a science-y article on the front page. I am curious what prompted it.

Anyway, I thought it was [...]

An interesting opinion piece on WashingtonPost.com examines why Republicans are happier than Democrats, according to the 2006 Pew Research poll.
Republicans have been happier than Democrats every year since the General Social Survey, conducted biannually by the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago, began asking about happiness in 1972.
It is worth noting [...]

She’s Right is on Channel 17 (Greater Burlington Area) tomorrow (Friday) at 5:25 PM with guest Retta Dunlap, Executive Director of Vermonters for Better Education.
And don’t forget about the Vermont Tiger symposium: Entrepreneurs or Entitlements: the future of Vermont’s economy.
(Personally, I vote for entrepreneurs, but we’re just like that. The other day my [...]

Wordpress keeps giving me this warning that my domain expires in 13799 days. That is just odd.
Now for some fun stuff. My kids made their first stop motion Lego videos. This one is by my 9-year-old.

I hope you weren’t looking for a thoughtful post because … I got nothing. Nothing.
But, this is funny. I get Google Alerts for “homeschooling,” and various other permutations of that phrase, and one of the alerts brought me to IMAO.
Man, I laughed my arse off reading such posts as Who Knows More: A [...]

Now that I am back, I have been giving some thought to what I should write about. It’s rather hard to do a political blog post when one hasn’t been following politics, you know.
Don’t get me wrong, I still love me some politics. It’s a combination of being turned off by the much-too-early [...]
