Just Stuff

I feel like death today (am I ever going to feel human again?)and I'm cranky so I'm copping out and sharing some links and a favorite song.

Interesting (I thought) links:

* Caribou Barbie doesn't have a hunting license. In Ohio that's illegal and carries a hefty fine. I assume Alaska does the same. I'd like to see her busted for that -- I'd even watch her idiot show if they showed the game warden nailing her for it. LOL

* More hypocrisy here.

* Here's an excellent site about preserving Social Security. If you don't like Social Security, you won't like it. I like it -- without it, I'd be dead.

* Want to save a couple bucks? AARP has a driver safety program that might just save y'all a little money on your car insurance. If you're interested, it also has a locater to help find a class near you.

When I was in high school, one of my favorite "imports" from England was Dusty Springfield. I also liked this song a lot. Looking back while listening and watching it, I realize that its lyrics are terribly out of date but we gals hadn't been liberated yet. It's almost an anthem for being a door mat which is something I don't do well. That said, I still think she had a wonderful voice.



Hope y'all are having a great day!!!!!!!!

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!!!!

  3. These winter colds just won't loosen its grip will they? I still have the cough and post nasal drip which is driving me nuts. Also very tired...

    However, the season is about to jump into full swing. Aaaack!

  4. Your post and comments regarding Dusty got me curious regarding the women's liberation movement to which you referred.

    It's interesting to note that Dusty's song, Wishin' & Hopin', did indeed clash with the first true liberation anthem for women on the Pop Charts in 1964 when Leslie Gore released her hit song "You Don't Own Me"!

    Leslie's song hit the Top Forty in February while Dusty's followed just three months later.

    But like you, I have always been a fan of Springfield's music.

  6. Take good care of yourself.
    Social Security allows so many people to take care of themselves at a basic level rather than being dependent on charity or in nursing homes, or living in dire poverty. It is cruel to threaten to end it.
    I think she should be arrested for many things, but I would accept an arrest for hunting w/o a license.

  7. Colleen: You are so kind!

    Joy: My next trick is getting 1001other things done.

    Kay: I think it's more than a cold.

    Alan: Yup!!! The women's movement was still in it's infancy. I think I was liberated the day my dad told me I couldn't play Little League because I was a girl and shouted, "That's not Fair!"

    Lorna: This stuff won't go away.

    AITBR: Heck!!! I'm still in poverty as are many women on Social Security. Still I manage with some extra help.
