Remember when?





I'm dreaming about days gone by...

Remember when there was no such thing as cell phones only beepers?
Remember when you rented movies on VHS?
Remember when there was nothing called a laptop or ipad?
Remember mini skirts and Beatle boots and record players and 45's?
Remember transistor radios?
Remember when public schools had art and music programs and taught writing in cursive?
Remember when prisons where not for profit?
Remember newspapers?


Remember when, we had a president who spoke eloquently?
Remember when we had a president who wasn't mired in scandals?
Remember when every waking hour wasn't about juvenile things the president said and did?
Remember when the president didn't insult our allies?
Remember when the president didn't defend pedophiles, Nazis and abusers?
Remember when the president wasn't in it for the money?
Remember when the presidents cabinet was filled with competent people who knew their jobs?

Remember that, that was just a year ago?

Those were the days my friend......


Have a fab weekend!

Lift off...




                                      (Noodle looking for Space X)


Noodle graciously has given up her Wordless Wednesday, so that I might say a few words...

I grew up in the 60's.

I was alive when we first shot a rocket to the moon.

I remember the pride and thrill of watching Neil Armstrong taking that first step and the words,
"that's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind"

With the amazing success of the SPACE X   launch yesterday,
February 6th. 2018 will go down in history.

I don't believe in coincidences.

I think everything happens for a reason no matter how insignificant it may seem at the time.

I don't think it was a coincidence that they launched a rocket into the heavens on the anniversary of my mothers passing.

At least I'd love to think in my heart that it was no coincidence.

I imagine instead that the rocket was predestined to soar into space on that exact date to celebrate my mothers life.

To acknowledge her essence.


Or perhaps it really was just a wonderful coincidence...







          (my mom is the little one on the end with the arrow pointing at her)




Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Trying to catch up...






We must have had seven different posts we were working on over the past few days.

Each one taking the place of the last one written in an attempt to keep up with everything that's going on.

We've been playing this catch up game for over a year now and I must say....it's exhausting!

This week it's all about The Memo.

Last week it was porn stars and affairs.

The week before that it was all about the presidents remarks about Haiti and Africa.

And the week before it was the government shut down and not that the government was shut down but more importantly who's fault it was.

There was the release of the book; Fire and Fury.

( I'm not even going to mention the Russia stuff, that would take way too much time)

Not that these things are unimportant or are not note worthy but the human mind can only retain so much!

There is impending war with North Korea or maybe even Iran.

There's DACA.

And still much of Puerto Rico sits without power and clean water.

The opioid epidemic continues to grow.

Our infrastructure keeps failing.

Homeless numbers climb.

Veterans are still committing suicide.

Bottom line is; there is no catching up.

We are in a continuous spin cycle that has no off button.

We are doomed to keep chasing or tails until we have an epiphany and realize that it's all just to some degree, noise.

Congress has thrown their respect and morals out the window and replaced  them with greed and power.

So, will Trump fire Rosenstein or Mueller or both?

Will the stock market fall below the 635 points it fell today?

Nothing is going to save us.

WE are the off button.

Only we can say ENOUGH and change the channel.

Maybe then we can all get to work and actually DO something...

Everybody happy?

Is this America being great again?





Have a wonderful weekend...

Parallels + a guest post!





"The judge dismissed the case stating that the government had so tainted their own case that it made a fair trial impossible"


Now you might be a bit confused and wonder when was there a trial? With all the coverage on Russia and collusion and obstruction of justice, how the heck did I miss the trial?

Well, you didn't.

That line was from the 1970's and refers to the trial of Daniel Ellsberg and Anthony Russo who were the force behind revealing The Pentagon Papers.

The parallels are striking between the events of the 1970's and today.

We just watched a documentary called The Most Dangerous Man In America.

It reminded us of many facts that we had forgotten over the years since the Nixon administration.

If you think the similarities between Watergate and the Russia investigation are remarkable, 

check this out...

And now for our guest part of the post:


We are honored to present a rap courtesy of TBT of Marks Mews...

We were hoping to have a real live person preform it and have a video for you but as hard as we tried it did not come to fruition.

But, the words speak for themselves so read on.


A Short Rap;


"The alt right is emoting

and they don't want ya be voting

so get yer sh*t in line

cuz there comin is a time

when ya gotta make a choice

for to speak up with a voice

to tell all the crazies

that we wont be lazies

when the election comes around

and the voting time is DOWN!



We've seen elections stolen

so we won't be beholding

to the system that is cheering

for electioneering

by the dudes in power

hour hour hour hour

get your butts in gear because

I'm saying here  cuz

get the nation in place

cuz its a damn disgrace



Its time to take it back

Give the power guys the whack

Back to power to the people

Cuz life aint no steeple

with the preacher saying "peace"

when there aint no release

and the elections are a joke

when there isn't any poke

when the Trumpies want our money

and the rich have it all so just think about that, honey



The next time around

got to beat them to the ground

Make the world get fair

and not a world for billionaires

Its we who matter

not some rich dudes platter

who builds the cars

who mows the yards

who drives the bus

who cares for us?"



Thank you TBT!



Have a wonderful weekend...
