    Wow--killer owls everywhere! At least one of the sons comes across as creepy as his father.

    My observation--as a completely uninvolved civilian--is that from ed school on, the game is to layer all kinds of high-flown (mostly obfuscatory) language to conceal the fact that no one really knows...

    Look at the writings of Republican strategist Steve Schmidt*; he's one, along with George Will, Michael Steele, and an increasing number of other Conservatives who are standing up to Trumpism. And...

    Peterson was said to have done something heinous to one of the family dogs--resulting in death, I believe--mercifully, I don't remember the details. That would have been enough for me. The owl theory...

    I don't know about Ultralight's, but we used to get yellow watermelon from a grocer in our area who trucked it in from Texas. As I recall, it tasted just like red watermelon--which was almost always...

    I've said before I was pretty close to the numerical cutoff for Canada when I retired (and was relatively young). Another missed opportunity. Next life, I'll learn to jump sooner.

    I've had some luck with Asian-inspired chicken-filled lettuce wraps, but in the end, I just served the little meat-wads over lettuce for the same reason.

    You can ditch the bread and make salads out of traditional sandwich or taco fillings--tuna and egg salad are obvious, but Reuben and other deli standards are also good. Concoct mustard/horseradish or...

    I think I remember video of people driving in the middle of the day with their lights on. And a lot of ash.

    This whole situation makes me think of "The Beverly Hillbillies Go to Washington." Sometimes you have to laugh, if only for a moment. And then get to work.

    I lived in Beaverton. I remember walking around in a particle mask, kicking up ash in the street, scooping it out of my gutters, watching it fall from the sky like snow.

    It seems so; I've read quite a lot of ominous tales of benzodiazepines--especially for older patients.

    Yes, as a lazy person i agree about the preparation. Maybe that's why intermittent fasting has so much appeal for me--one meal a day makes it all so much easier. Also, it allows for more food variety...

    Eruption, by Steve Olson, which chronicles the events surrounding the Mount Saint Helens blast. It happened in my back yard, so to speak, and some co-workers were involved. I saw an excellent...

    A lot of these tiny houses work better as concept pieces than they would in real life. My idea of tiny-that-works is around 800 square feet. I'd be more comfortable around 1200.

    Eating good food is one of the grand earthly pleasures. I suggest delving into cooking a bit farther than you have. Gluten free is not a death sentence; it just makes food prep a little more...

    I have no problem with "grease," as long as it doesn't involve industrial seed oils, but replacing the wheat component is a little more difficult. Fat Head pizza is a pretty good substitute, and I've...

    It's not illegal to enter the country or to petition for asylum. If your papers aren't in order, I understand it's on the level of misdemeanor.

    Yes, Apathetic No More, but a whole lot of us will be dying off soon, Millennials don't seem eager to reproduce, and this country is vast. We can absorb lots more immigrants than we allow in without...

    That willing spirit, weak flesh situation is something I've thought a lot about lately, as I grow even more lame and sluggish in my dotage, but I'm a lot kinder to myself than I might have been in...

    I want to exit this life having done some good and having enjoyed myself; any lofty ambitions I may have had dissipated long ago.

    I figure this life is for experiencing certain circumstances and...

    I've learned to avoid volunteering. I'm fine with working a library book sale or a quilt show--something with a beginning and end, but I'm not signing up for anything open-ended. I'm done with having...
