Final Thought

(Gave a man a match and he’ll be warm for an hour… Set him on fire and he’ll be warm for the rest of his life.) Nite!

I’m one of the lucky ones

I have a house to live in; I can afford my utilities; my credit, while not spotless, is good; I make more than minimum wage. In an effort to raise the tax base, many cities are getting rid of lower income housing, and now, Norfolk is going after people who “live” in motels, otherwise being […]

An artist gets it?

Andre Allen, husband to Dawn Robinson (En Vogue, Lucy Pearl) has the following to say about the music industry (courtesy of Billboard.com) “The industry has underestimated what the public wants,” says Allen about his group’s rock stance. “They want to hear more than just hip-hop. There’s a huge audience for ‘non-black’ music. It’s about finding […]

Wake Up And Pay Attention

Dave over at Wake Me Up On Judgement Day has a good dissection of what same-sex marriages mean. Even to those backwards states such as Virginia. People need to get over their bigotry and their hatred.

The rats had the sense

…to abandon the ship, while the captain adjusts his tuxedo a bit.* Seems like there’s getting ready to be a mass exodus here at CHK. MzPeg, TwoToes, Blondie, CurtOne, and Tink are all looking for jobs. (I am too, to a point). LanMan is taking doctoral classes, so he’ll be gone soon, too. One of […]

I really need…

…to win the lottery. There’s so much I want to do around the house and such, and just don’t have the time or money for it. Of course, if I won the lottery, I’d probably end up selling the house and moving someplace else, but… it’s a nice dream, one that keeps me going from […]

And the USPS is mad, WHY?

They claim email and online bill paying is cutting into their margins. Let’s see. Postage rates keep going up, and service keeps going down. It took 17 days for a letter, posted from my mailbox with correct postage, to make it 2 miles over to my parents house. I could have WALKED it over there […]

The Living Dead

The title refers to the way I feel today. I guess being out in the sun as much as I was yesterday really wore me out. I didn’t think I was that tired, but this morning, I almost overslept; something I rarely do. I really could use taking the day off and just sleeping, but […]
