Food Sourced from Other Countries

"Those Eggs are from Where?" Someone told me he recently saw eggs in the market that were sourced from China. Think Bird Flu. A few years ago I was in Vons, a supermarket chain here, and reached for frozen spinach. Looking at the label, I noticed it was sourced from China. I prefer locally sourced...

Daddy and the Red Sports Car

"Where Are You Gonna Put the Kids?" My dad was so sweet, so lovable; a soft-spoken (for an Italian), mild-mannered kind of guy who wore a bow tie with a white shirt that had multiple colored pens and a Scripto mechanical pencil in the pocket, complete with pocket protector. He wore a dark felt... Sign in to see full entry.

When a Man Screams...

"I Heard That!" Went to the dental office today for my regular cleaning. This office is relatively new to me, and I've never had the actual dentist do any dental work on my teeth. It was eerily quiet in there. The receptionist/office manager was off because her son was ill. One hygienist was also... Sign in to see full entry.

Vodka and Whiskey

"I'll Have Both... " Since this is a day (Super Bowl Sunday) when many folks indulge in adult beverages, I'll confess to a time I did so, and lived to wish I hadn't. We were with a group of friends, cruising. Cruising, as in American Graffiti, was a popular pastime in California once upon a time. We... Sign in to see full entry.

Where's My Purse?

"Anybody find a purse?" I once left my purse in the shopping cart after buying groceries on my way home from work. I remember that I was so tired. Up early, work all day, stop to buy food, then have to go home and cook the food... You know the drill. Anyway, I had put the groceries in the car, but... Sign in to see full entry.

Surveillance, You Never Know...

"That Man is Talking to His Pen!!" One summer night, many years ago, in the days before cell phones and before the advent of malls, at the time when there were phone booths with pay telephones which cost only a dime to use, in the early evening, after my husband had come home from work, and after...

Gimme That Ol' Time Religion

"Pull Over!" When he was a boy, my little brother had one of those now near-obsolete things called a newspaper route. It was back in the day when newspapers were delivered to one's house on a daily basis, or, for those who so chose, on Sundays only. I used to drive my twelve year-old brother along...

Charles Manson's Body

"What'd He Just Say? " This just in from tonight's news. As you may know, there has been an ongoing legal battle over who "gets" to claim Charles Manson's remains, mainly because along with it, also comes possible monetary compensation as controller of his estate. Three people have come forward. I... Sign in to see full entry.


On Kindness Our Amanda posted a quote by Plato today about being kind. It's one of my favorites. But that's beside the point. Just a quick anecdote for today. A few years ago, I was "babysitting" my twin grandsons, who were then older grade school age. They began posturing, spouting off to me about... Sign in to see full entry.

à la Check Berry, Lyrics from "School Days"

"American History and Practical Math..." - I don't know about any of you, but in school I often tended to study the instructor as much as, or more than, the material being presented - not always the brightest idea, but it provided a modicum of entertainment throughout the most boring of...
