Who's Got Your DNA?

Millions of DNA Samples Stored in Warehouse(s) Did you know that California is one of 20 states that keeps blood samples after testing of newborns? (I wonder what the names of the other 19 states are?) This has been going on since 1982 (!), and most parents have no idea that their children's DNA is... Sign in to see full entry.

California Still Burning

The Latest You Probably Won't See on the News You may have noticed I haven't been around much lately. Wildfires aren't condusive to writing, not even a blog, and certainly not poetry. The continuous odor of smoke permeates the house day and night, even though we are not at the moment, in the line of... Sign in to see full entry.

Bonfire of the Delicacies

"What Are You Doing in My Yard at Midnight?" I've mentioned this tale before here in Blogitsville, but when it comes to neighbor karma, mine ain't so good. I've had some of the weirdest neighbors... Here's one story for TAPS, and everybody else. We had a next door neighbor many, many years ago who... Sign in to see full entry.

No, You Can't Play Outside

"Wanna Go Get an Ice Cream Cone?" It had just snowed outside. Again. But I wanted to go out and play in that white, fluffy stuff. After all, I was just a tyke. I opened the back door. "No, you can't go outside to play. It's too cold in all that snow," Mama was right behind me, closing the door. In... Sign in to see full entry.

Don't Answer the Door

* "It's the Jehovahs!" As I've mentioned, my grand-uncle lived with us when I was a little girl. He was the surrogate grandfather for all twenty-five of us cousins, since his brother, my grandpa, had passed on. However, the two brothers had been polar opposites.

A Shootout and Banditos on the Run

The Bullets Fly I once worked with a lady whose grandfather rode with the outlaw bandito, Poncho Villa. She was a very short, short woman, but really sweet and pretty sharp when it came to the ways of the world. She told me a story about one time when the authorities were pursuing Poncho's gang on...

Gastronomical Sacrilege

"I Never Touch the Stuff" Okay, it's confession time. I'm a picky eater, which in no way translates to " I don't like to eat." I do. As a kid, I once ate an entire bag of Fritos! Got sick, but I ate it. So what's the big deal? I don't use black pepper on my food. Yeah, yeah, I know, everybody does.... Sign in to see full entry.

How Will My Head Fit?

"Mommy, Mommy! Help! Help!" I wasn't yet 4 years old, and downstairs in the garage was my mom's washer. It was what they called a wringer-washer. It had two rollers on top that spun around, even while the clothes washed. After the clothes were washed, Mom took them out of the machine and put them... Sign in to see full entry.

Burned Fries

"Who's Hungry?' There was no getting out of it. It was the day of my parents' final sign-off on our new house. Forget the fact that it was 150 miles away, and I was gonna have to suffer being a Senior in a new high school. We were ALL going along with Mom and Dad; didn't we want to see the brand new...
