Getting To Know You, Getting To Know All About You

Did you catch the latest installment in the Democratic Presidential Debates?  I didn’t.  Netflix has spoiled me for watching any series that I can’t binge watch, plus I am allowed to drop out anywhere along the way when I lose interest. When the first debates were held last June, there was interest a-plenty, even with an unwieldy field of candidates (a couple of […]

Monarchy, Moon, Mother

Let us pray for these earthly and heavenly concerns. Monarchy.  Apparently, royal status isn’t all it’s cracked up to be (unless, of course, if one is King of Kings).  The ginger offspring of the House of Windsor (I see no ginger DNA), Brother Prince Harry, has decided he doesn’t want to play in the royal sandbox anymore, and has announced […]

Hornets, Heretics & Harlots

Another year, another start, more trash.  Let us pray. Hornets.  Our fearless leader has shown his swagger and power by ordering the killing of a top Iranian General.  I support taking action towards those who harm our citizens.  I also support removal of hornet’s nests under my eaves.  I just don’t believe that attacking said hornet’s nest like a piñata […]

Let ‘Em Roar

“There are those, I suppose, think we’re mad, heaven knows, the world has gone to rack and to ruin.” The first time I heard those lyrics from Thoroughly Modern Millie sung by Julie Andrews marked the beginning of a long term love affair with the Roaring ‘20s. And while that movie was a soufflé, I discovered grit in The Roaring […]

The Best of 2019

Brothers and Sister, I have prayed about how the Lord spoke through me this year and feel the need to share with you what I believe to be my Top Ten stories of 2019, in chronological order.  I’ll leave to each of your own prayer lives to decide your favorite. Fans.  I have long been familiar with the various types […]

Finding Scarlett Once Again

Last Sunday, December 15, marked the 80th anniversary of the Atlanta premiere of Gone with the Wind.  So, it should come as no surprise that I spent the afternoon curled up on the sofa in a fluffy robe and a cup of coffee for my pretty much annual visit with Scarlett, Rhett, and the rest of the clan.  (Pardon the pun.) The […]

Why Can’t They Be More Like Us?

Several years ago, Karl and I got the opportunity to see My Fair Lady on the big screen at the Castro theater in San Francisco. I’m not sure that Karl thought of it so much as an opportunity, more like part of the ongoing requirements of being married to me. If 2001: A Space Odyssey had been playing instead, those […]

Sesame, Similarity, Solar.

Let us broaden our concerns beyond this earthly coil. Sesame.  I have always been an advocate for good, clean, educational television.  As the years have passed, the availability of such has grown scarce.  For 50 years, there has been no better televised accompaniment to my weekly children’s sermon than SESAME STREET.  Although the program occasionally drifted in a liberal direction, […]

Words From The Impeachment

Most everybody has some subject about which they know more than the average bear. These resident experts may be content just knowing that they know, or they may feel compelled to parade their knowledge for all to see. The hasty and often careless use of social media to communicate in what passes today for writing gives ample opportunity for the […]

Variety, Victory & Verisimilitude

Pardon my absence last week.  But I’m back with a vengeance. Variety.  This world continues to amaze and disgust me.  I have always known that COSMOPOLITAN magazine was a liberal publication, hell-bent on encouraging the sluttier nature of women.  For years, I have been able to turn a blind eye and pray for their wayward readers.  You can imagine my […]
