"I Hate Poetry!" Words of my Sister & a Whole Lot of Others

"Nobody Buys Poetry Anymore" My friend and paesona said those words to me a couple of years ago, well-meaning and as only a friend can do. Then she asked me when was the last time I bought a book of poetry. " Uh, like never, " I said. (I didn't tell her I'd inherited my parents' library, which... Sign in to see full entry.

What the #^@# Does THAT Mean? Ah, yes! They're talking about the Italian Diaspora, meaning the dispersion, the mass exodus, of Italians from their homeland. It's the topic of a lovely two-week seminar being held next year in the South of Italy, sponsored by a well-known university. I'm not going to... Sign in to see full entry.

BREAKING UP We had a good run but... now our affair is over. I've told you this before. I don't care what you do, we're through. Talk about a cheap trick! You think hearts and flowers will win me over? M ake me come back to you, m ake me want you again? I know I'm not the first, and you've 'chipped... Sign in to see full entry.

Greenhouse Effects and Bovines

Gas-X For Cows? This may border on sacrilege to many but before you rack me over the coals, think on something that's been percolating in my mind lately. It has to do with cows, specifically, the pasuring of them and the consumption of their meat. The situation, some say, appears to be that they... Sign in to see full entry.

Inside Lizardland

Here's the latest report from Lizardland, my home base. This morning I reached into the silverware drawer for a teaspoon and while I almost had my paw onto the handle of said spoon, I saw something with a tail on it crawling over the top of the spoon - the part that goes in your mouth. I yelled out... Sign in to see full entry.

Music of Tonight

It's always nice to hear a bit of pleasant music. A holiday weekend is beginning here, the tone in air is high, and everyone is a hair short on patience. My taste in music very eclectic. I like almost anything with notes on a musical bar and a staff. I stumbled onto this duet of Andrea Bocelli... Sign in to see full entry.

I May Not Always Eat Donuts, But When I Do...

This is so NOT normal... Speaks for itself. Yes, I admit it. I sliced up a Long John, on a angle yet, and then took a bite - with a fork! Notice how I'd placed it on a napkin to absorb the extra grease. Yes, I did eventually eat the whole thing. Definitely fits into a Theatre of the (Almost) Absurd... Sign in to see full entry.

Why So Much Plastic?

Do We Need To Use All That? I’ve been thinking about this for a couple of days now, not exclusively, of course. Then I had a minor epiphany, if there can be such a thing. I was doing laundry, like I do everyday, and as I poured the liquid HE Tide laundry detergent out of its plastic container, I... Sign in to see full entry.

Meanwhile, in the Backyard...

I Smell a Rat Not literally. You know how sometimes things just aren't quite right. Ever since I've had the visiting baby bunny living in the backyard late last spring the little crabapples have been falling off of the tree, and they have had bites chewed out of them. Then they started being moved... Sign in to see full entry.
