We Survived Our First Family Camping Trip!

  Lately, I have been having thoughts that tent camping would be a fun weekend for my family… I now think those thoughts might have been mini pin strokes. My personal attraction to camping was (note past tense) to enjoy a lovely setting, a water view and a glass of wine for twenty bucks a […]

Signs

I am always flabbergasted by the ubiquitous restroom sign: “Please do not flush feminine products down the toilet.  They will clog the plumbing.  Use the receptacle provided. Thank you.”  I mean, really?  Every time, I wonder, who are the morons who don’t know this?  Do they have plumbed toilets in their own home or do […]

But what about the stupid people?

There is a certain faction in this country that decries helping those who are poorest among us. They don’t want to offer those less fortunate food assistance or provide adequate medical care. The battle cry is “get a job” or “pull up them boot straps.” That’s all well and good but I have always wondered, […]

If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people. Click here to […]
