    My favorite summer soup is gazpacho, although DH doesn't like it. It's delicious and you use up cucumbers and tomatoes.

    Minestrone soup has been our soup du jour this past month, because it's a great way to use zucchini and other veggies. One of the big food doctors--maybe Mark Hyman?--eats minestrone soup for...

    My wariness is not with the Government, but with social media, and not with social media content, because as you said, it's a platform. But as a platform it has tremendous power. Watching The Social...

    No, I don't want to step on our First Amendment rights. In fact I was a very unpopular Man-In-The-Street once in the 70s when the question was "should flag-burning be legal?" And my response was...

    The interesting fact in that article is something I really didn't know and that is, Facebook isn't subject to First Amendment violations because it is a private company.

    I am very hesitantly purging a wing chair, half of a pair we bought used two years ago. I hate to throw it away, but the upholstery has seen better days, and the legs are wobbly, and we replaced it...

    Dogs: Leash vs Fence

    It is 9:57am on the East Coast, and I'm still in my robe. I did have early telephone interviews, so I might have an excuse, but, frankly, I'm amazed that these days, I stay in my robe for hours.

    The tomatoes are in my DH's garden, and his life philosophy is "if one is good, 100 is always better". This approach to life has led to many arguments, such as when he's taking a pharmaceutical, or...

    I'm learning you can never have too many sheds.

    I am jealous of the underground tractor garage. My yard too often looks like the kids forgot to put their toys away at night.

    I suspect you meant this phrase to be snarky because you followed it up with negative associations of attempts at fair play but I think "sustainable news ecosystem" is a great thing to aspire to. The...
