How to handle a few inches of snow

Norma at Collecting My Thoughts - 1 hour ago
When I was in college, there was no e-mail, and the dorms had only one phone to a floor, so we couldn’t even take messages from the college administration on how to handle a few inches of snow. It was just one of those things it was assumed we had learned from our parents who had lived through the Great Depression and walked to school uphill both ways in 6 feet of snow. This is what Ohio State University sent out to the “campus community.” I’ve been retired for 18 years, and I still hear from them. “The safety of our campus community is our top priority.

Wily Willie Barr-- A Guest Post By Sam Husseini

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 7 hours ago
Grand Rapids Congressman Justin Amash (R-MI) doesn't get a vote of William Barr, luckily for Barr and unfortunately for America. "William Barr," he tweeted soon after Trump nominated him, "is another unfortunate pick for attorney general. His record is one of empowering government, specifically the executive branch, at the expense of liberty and the rights of the people. We need an AG who will uphold the 4th Amendment and 5th Amendment, not erode them. After the Senate hearing Tuesday, he wrote that "Barr reiterated his support for legalized theft, also known as civil asset forfei... more »

The Poet: T.S. Eliot, “The Hollow Men”

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 8 hours ago
*“The Hollow Men”* “We are the hollow men. We are the stuffed men Leaning together, Headpiece filled with straw. Alas! Our dried voices, when We whisper together Are quiet and meaningless As wind in dry grass, Or rats' feet over broken glass In our dry cellar. Shape without form, shade without color, Paralyzed force, gesture without motion; Those who have crossed With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom Remember us - if at all - not as lost Violent souls, but only As the hollow men, The stuffed men. II Eyes I dare not meet in dreams In death's dream kingdom... These do not appear: T... more »

"Time Passes..."

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 8 hours ago
"Time passes in moments. Moments which, rushing past, define the path of a life, just as surely as they lead towards its end. How rarely do we stop to examine that path, to see the reasons why all things happen? To consider whether the path we take in life is our own making, or simply one into which we drift with eyes closed? But what if we could stop, pause to take stock of each precious moment before it passes? Might we then see the endless forks in the road that have shaped a life? And, seeing those choices, choose another path?" - Gillian Anderson as Dana Scully, "The X-Files"

Lucille Snodgrass, 1919-2019

Norma at Collecting My Thoughts - 8 hours ago
I heard this week that Lucille Snodgrass, the mother of my high school friend Nancy Snodgrass Falzone, had passed away. She was living at Pinecrest in Mt. Morris, and we should all have a devoted daughter like Nancy—or even a good friend like my brother who visited her there. Nancy and I used to ride horses together as children, so I remember Lucille and husband Bill who died in 1989 from their days on the farm on Mud Creek Road between Mt. Morris and Oregon. I’d only seen her a few times in the last 50 years, but my memory of her is a sweet, beautiful, charming, classy gal wh... more »

Oumuamua, Maybe Not Aliens, But Alien.

*O*umuamua the object which passed through our solar system in October 2017 with a trajectory that indicates it was not of this solar system was never photographed. We only saw a point of light that that changes in brightness as it rotates. There could be many reasons a natural body might change greatly in brightness, trajectory, and velocity as it rotates. In all the randomness of collisions between bodies in the heavens almost anything is possible. However, when it comes to alien life, we have to be careful. No one or two things can give us reasonable certainty. read... more »
