GRANDMA'S WORLD

There was a Panamanian mola at the International Students' Gathering,

listed at a $5 starting price at the silent auction. I only had that much in my pocket, so, I wrote my name and that price as my offering. (You know, if you've seen my work, that I use that mola concept in my paintings often.) I spoke to a lovely South Korean psychology Master's student and met his beautiful wife and two small children. He is a wonderful man, volunteering some hours and getting paid for some, working for a victim and witness advocacy program. Painful and scarey work for anyone,... Sign in to see full entry.

Tomorrow off to the International Students welcome buffet at the U of A

Museum. I'm only going for the food, that's what the students say. It might be true for me this week. I am feeling guilty because I am not accepting any new students to host this semester. I still have the three and their friends from the last two years and so many things volunteered to do.............no time, no time. If I go tomorrow tho', they will corral me and I will end up with someone new. I am torn. Sigh......I don't want to host if I can't do a good job of it. I am leaving on vacation...

An email from my brother that I am posting all over the internet, as mine.

He'd rather not have his name on it..........he has clients. So, here is what he wrote. McCain Is An Even Bigger Idiot Than You Thought THIS MONTH, John McCain published an essay saying that we need to do for health insurance what we did for the world of banking and finance: "Opening up the health insurance market to more vigorous nationwide competition, as we have done over the last decade in banking, would provide more choices of innovative products less burdened by the worst excesses of...

Starbuck's, goin' down, Stone Cold Creamery, goin' down,

Circuit City, bought out...........by Blockbuster, maybe, probably, uh huh. All those rich people's places to shop are goin' down now that there are fewer rich people to buy their Veblen priced goods. Buying a popsicle from the Paletero walking down the street here in town can be just as yummy as a $4 scoop of ice cream at Santa Barbara's Ice Cream Parlor. Making my own coffee exactly my way is much better than a $5 cup at Starbuck's. AND, I still have money in my pocket at the end of my ice... Sign in to see full entry.

My brother's email about McCain and Obama, Palin and the USA.

This is something that a friend of mine wrote to a little internet circle of lawyers and law professors that I belong to. He's a lifelong Republican and and world class over-achiever himself. After we asked him, he has consented to have this circulated without his name attached to it. It is already starting to get a pretty wide circulation, and I'm passing it on because I think he has identified something fundamentally wrong with the way people are thinking in this country today. Here it is:... Sign in to see full entry.

My world is all about CHANGE this month...

The lightning hit the tree, which broke the fence which squished the car back which got me going on a bad luck streak unparalleled in the past two years. So, I chopped off my hair, it now stands only one inch off of my old grey head, if that. So easy to take care of now. I broke out the old crock pot to eat better and cheaper again. I am declaring all out war on the Pakistani and Saudi cucarachas in my kitchen. I am grooming the garden daily like an obssessed old military man. I am charting my... Sign in to see full entry.

Grandma's world is rockin' and that ain't good.

Bad luck doesn't come in threes, America, not in my experience. When it starts, it's like a dam breaking and it just keeps coming until it stops and I am about three minutes away from needing to be carted off the the rest asylum. I am not at that three 'minutes away' point as yet, but it's getting closer. Sign in to see full entry.

Grandma's world has slowed to a sea turtle's crawl on the beach.

My computer has filled up its virtual memory and all other available spaces and things. So, I have been investigating my needs. I went all over Goggle and found what to look for, then I ran a memory test from cnet.com to double check the facts of my computer and finally used my screen capture to print out the info on my own computer, as the little testing program doesn't have that function for us forgetful old people. Now armed with five sheets of too much info, I will hit the Nerds at SWS and... Sign in to see full entry.
