Well, yeah.


Sarcastic. But kinda, um, true.

This explains a lot.


If y’all see someone doin’ this…tell ’em they’re hiring at Burger King.


Now they tell us!

Oh, and one more thing…


Life is one big road with lots of signs

So when you’re riding through the ruts

Don’t complicate your mind

Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy

Don’t bury your thoughts

Put your vision to reality

Wake up and live!

War of 1812 Flag Replay*

June 18, 1812 – War of 1812 Began

On June 1, 1812, President James Madison sent a message to Congress recounting American grievances against Great Britain, though not specifically calling for a declaration of war. After Madison’s message, the House of Representatives deliberated for four days behind closed doors before voting 79 to 49 (61% in favor) the first declaration of war, and the Senate agreed by 19 to 13 (59% in favor). The conflict began formally on June 18, 1812, when Madison signed the measure into law and proclaimed it the next day.  This was the first time that the United States had declared war on another nation, and the Congressional vote would prove to be the closest vote to formally declare war in American history.

Book Review: The Sun Also Rises

June 23, 2017 Leave a comment

I cracked open The Sun Also Rises again on a whim, after listening to a podcast about the story behind Hemingway’s writing of the classic. I kinda wish I hadn’t. If this band of un-merry drinkers were Millennials instead of the “Lost Generation,” I’d no doubt find their Facebook pages insufferable. Some stones are meant to be unturned and some old favorites not to be reread. (2 of 5 Stars)
