If you don’t do it every day, you are damned to extinction.

Wear real clothes and change out of what you slept in — into clean clothes. Even if you don’t think you need to do it, take a shower.

Writing about what I know…

Nothing like costumes and ghosties and fall decorations for Halloween to kickstart that holiday reminiscing bonanza.  It is once again time to remind myself of how the Internet, Facebook, and social media will be filled with maudlin remarks about murdered children, Ebola, incomprehensible fears about The Other and then a heavy dose of the stupid annual insanity parade on Fox News and elsewhere about how Christmas is under siege and knowing damn well the siege those nimrods speak of is nothing like […]

Health Plan One website

Wow. Signing up with healthplanone’s website in search of an insurance quote? Be careful what you ask for. I’ve rec’d 10 phone calls in 4 hours and 3 scam text messages and they successfully removed my number from the Do Not Call registry. Be careful of this website. Your information will be shared EVERYWHERE. The site is not to be trusted. Steer clear of Bill Stapleton and his minions, I suppose. I have been advised to change my cell phone […]

532 E 2nd St, Washington NC 27889

The house listed for sale at the above-referenced address is not only a nasty pitiful dwelling listed at more than $10,000 above where it should be priced, the people who live there are rude, inconsiderate crap heads. While the storm Sandy rages on here in eastern NC, these pieces of human dung put their dog outside in a chain link 10×10 kennel with no cover. The dog is howling and barking. I just saw the drive away and leave the […]

Mockingbird Brothers leave storm offerings at back door

Every time I let the dogs outside, something new is near the door. On the mat. I thought Roxie (dog) was leaving objects for my attention. Now I realize it must be the Mockingbird Brothers. They were in the raintree on a limb just over the garage, right there… guilty. These old safety/welding glasses are pretty fab. eh? So far there are four objects. I will check for more… oops, found another, and another … food? a coffee cake? dog […]

New York Times Newly Released Books for Oct. 25, 2012

Hooray for  Janis. Sister dear, friend divine… I love it when friends are recognized for brilliance, for hard work, for TALENT. Janis’s newest novel, American Ghost, is a great read and I heartily recommend it. It’s a bit historical fiction, a bit Southern Gothic and romance and a smidgen of mystery. My copy is an ebook, bought via Amazon and I read it on the Kindle Fire for the most part but did some reading on the iPad with the […]

Rev. Alicia Lyon Folberth: Etsy Sales Witch and Bully

I’m creating an artist’s book about  a man named Lester Belt who was a dog astrologer in the 1930-1940s. His  name comes up only a couple times online — once for a photo in an old Life Magazine and another for a patent application. When I googled him, the other side of the Life magazine page came up on Etsy for sale — in a shop owned by a Wiccan witch in Derby, CT. I sent an email to Alicia Lyon […]

When I Was A Republican in College 1972

This season’s political climate makes me nostalgic. No yearning for the old days nostalgia, just remembering old days nostalgia. My political past makes today’s young pups look incredibly tame; their adventures so incredibly lame. I am a Nixon Era political science student. We did not study the 1960s, we lived them. And the 1970s. By 1980, my Republican diaspora turned me into a Libertarian and found me campaigning for Ed Clark (the Alaskan worth his salt on the national political […]

Sean Bertran Owes Morrow an Apology

If you walked outside your house one morning and looked next door, saw your neighbor’s car had been spray painted with graffiti and defaced — what would you do? Well, you’d alert your neighbor and if your neighbor wasn’t home, you’d call the police. Right? No question about it. If the graffiti was written as a racial slur, would that make your reaction any different? Would you photograph the slur and then post it on the Internet and tell everyone […]

Online Bullying — Does it spread to hacking Twitter accounts?

It’s a confusing online world we live in. Sometimes the truth is out there but it’s so very difficult to find. Take the dismal Twitter account hack of Deb Morrow’s Congressional information Twitter account. This woman is trying her damndest to get into the fight, the political fight and she’s an honest hard-working decent person. She really is. I defy anyone to find anything nasty about her anytime in her entire life. She’s one of the good guys (gals). So […]
