I'll Have the Salad...

"Ever See a Skinny Rabbit?" During this time of incessant food-fests and bake-offs (at least in this family), everyone wants to try to not put on weight, while scarfing down all the best of treats which are, undoubtedly, the worst of treats as far as avoiding totin' any additional tonnage goes.

You're Dead When???

Undead Genes Come Alive After Death How can this be? The living die, but their genes don't? Think of what this can mean, may mean.

Glory Days of Flying

"Who Are They?" Back in the glory days of flying, when it was actually fun to be on an airplane flight, and you were served a martini and snack on a one-hour flight if you so desired, we often traveled by air to visit relatives. Sometimes we'd board the Red Eye and stay just the weekend. We always... Sign in to see full entry.

"And the Winner is...!"

Queen for a Day There used to be a TV show here in the US called Queen for a Day. The premise was to have several women who had suffered a great tragedy tell their tales of woe, and the 'winner' would be declared Queen for a Day, seated in a chair like a throne, given a crown to wear, and receive...

Researchers Claim Humans Have Souls

"Yes, Virginia, there is a soul... " say some physicists. 'SCIENTISTS have claimed that death may not be as final as we once feared - and that humans have souls that can leave the body after their hosts kick the bucket. It may sound like a supernatural myth, but the idea that human consciousness... Sign in to see full entry.

How Dumb is This?

What's that Thing? Shriek!!! I told everyone here the story about the "burned" French fry that was in my basket of fries when my parents and us kids stopped to eat after they signed the final papers on the new house.

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.

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...

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.
