    Excellence and achievement are worth celebrating.

    Those who wish to improve our circumstances and work to achieve those ends are, by definition, not "in despair." Were our Founding Fathers "in...

    +100. Thank you.

    I sometimes think we became alienated when we left the proverbial Garden of Eden. In the present context, I don't blame Jeff Bezos for wanting to ditch planet Earth just because...

    The only interesting thing I've come across about Dominos is their pizza war with Pizza Hut on History Channel. Apparently Pizza Hut was eating their lunch until Dominos marketed the 30 minute...

    Senior moment. I knew "Dominick's" wasn't right, but I even googled it and Domino's didn't come up.

    I'm not crazy about chain pizzas. I prefer mom-and-pop. I'd rather cook a big meal than get Dominick's Pizza. I really dislike thick crusts and super-sweet sauce you find on most chain pizzas. The...

    I love cold pizza for breakfast. This might horrify some people, but we leave the leftover pizza out at night, and I just grab a piece in the morning to have with my coffee. And I eat it with my...

    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...

    In addition to the specific example the article references, and I referred to twice (you can't yell Fire in a crowded theatre):

    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.

    One of the joys of living in Vermont is that many people are like my neighbor who does his lawn/garden work in his pajama bottoms. My neighbor on the other side once came over for Friday...

    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.

    I...

    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.
