A little more that six months from now, there will be no mail delivery on Saturdays. The move is designed to help stop the agency from bleeding money, as it has recently begun losing […]

Now I’ve Seen It All

My grandmother is rolling over in her grave, I’m sure. As someone who was born with a green thumb, she would spend hours in the garden tending plants, weeding the beds, and trimming flowers. She could look at a plant and in seconds, tell you not only what what it needed, but what it DIDN’T […]

Something to Ponder for Valetine’s Day

Someone asked me, if money were no concern, and you could do anything you want, what would you do for your Valentine this year? Well, getting past the fact that I HAVE no Valentine, I sat and thought about it for a while. After what seemed like an eternity (because I was waiting for a […]

Advocates of a TV blackout on inauguration day ceremonies are cheering today, as the first ratings numbers are in. While these are  not final results, they do give an indication that HUGE numbers of viewers tuned out this time around.  Did you watch, or skip it all?

TV Boycott?

TV Boycott?

Convincing people to NOT watch a presidential inauguration is normally not too tough. Let’s face it, most of us would rather watch a Honey Boo Boo re-run than sit through hours of political double speak and hot air! Well, this years numbers may be even lower than normal. Seems that there is a fairly large […]
