    I always felt as if I were wasting time at work, and commuting to work. Give me a good book, and I will happily while away the hours.

    Youth made a difference in the sixties, and ushered in a new era. I think the time is well past for an uprising.

    I'm sure I'm an underachiever, but I've never understood this (peculiarly American?) need to be busy and "productive" all the time.

    My sibling's step-daughter wore high-tops with her wedding dress. Apparently it's a trend, along with wading in mud and taking pictures. :~)
  5. I wouldn't mind a retirement community here...

    I wouldn't mind a retirement community here similar to what Flowerseverywhere described--it sounds lovely. There are a few around, but fewer of them and less well-designed.

    Also, the idea that Clinton was having her "maid" do clerical work is laughable to me--even if she had a "maid," which I doubt. Snopes didn't find much evidence to support this tale...

    And now, Trump gets a severely dumbed-down PDF that any one of a number of people without a security clearance (Jared Kushner, et al) can peruse.

    Part of it is surely the "shooting fish in a barrel" aspect of it.

    I agree that carnage of any kind is unforgivable--especially when committed by those sworn to "protect and serve."

    I did some research, and found no evidence of Clinton or her aide disseminating classified emails. I saw a Breitbart headline during my search, so I assume that's where this comes from. I also found...

    There's a report of shots fired and a lockdown at Highline Community College south of here. Hope it's nothing.

    Update: it's apparently nothing.

    No, I haven't been to many. A friend of a friend is a fairly well-known chef in the PNW, and she goes to various places and reports back. I read menus, and honestly--if I can easily make a meal, I'll...

    I don't enjoy high-end restaurants. The food generally has little appeal for me, the prices never, and the general snobbery--that often swirls like a miasma--grates (but I love reading their menus...

    I agree that Trumps sexual exploits are no one's business but the people's involved, but I heartily disagree about Porter and the ragtag bunch of misanthropes, incompetents, and white supremacists...

    When I go out to eat, I vastly prefer family-owned ethnic restaurants where the most important thing is the quality of the food--and I eat my samosas, pakoras, tacos, and egg rolls with my fingers,...

    We need to get big money out of politics--campaign finance reform. That's the only thing that will put a stop to the spectacle of representatives as wholly-owned minions of the Koch brothers, the...

    I try to avoid restaurants where you are expected to eat foods normally considered "finger foods" with a fork.

    The Right never did, either--they only pretend to when Democrats are in power. See "the two Santa Claus theory."

    Not lowering taxes over and over while ratcheting up our defense budget would have gone a long way toward seeing to that.

    I'm not a Christian, and certainly not a Bible scholar, but my sense is that the Sermon on the Mount is the defining tenet of Christ's teachings. And as such, is pretty much at odds with all the...

    I'm not a fan of zucchini, either--it's one of my least favorite vegetables, way down the list from okra and beets. And I have a spiralizer, but I've never made zoodles. I've heard they're not bad...

    And why is ours the only civilized country in which this kind of thing happens? We're a gold-plated Somalia. And as long as someone at the top of the pile is making money, nobody in power cares. I've...
