Full Frontal Thursday: Firings, Birth Control, & the 15-Year War in Iraq

In this installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam talks about the firings of nearly everyone who has spent any amount of time in the same room as Baby-Hands McDrumpf.

She also joins up with Laurie Metcalf to shine a spotlight on the history of women’s pain, and how birth-control pills are the only option women are given for issues such as endometriosis, dysmenorrhea, and PCOS, to name a few.

Finally, she reminds us that we have been at war in Iraq for 15 years. Seems like only yesterday when the lie was told that hurled the USA into that quagmire.

Matinee & Dinner

Went and saw an afternoon showing of a movie yesterday, then went out for pizza. The movie was excellent and the pizza was great.

There are so few films worth seeing that I tend to only see one in theatres per year. I don’t foresee any others being worthwhile.

I got my annual viewing in.


Midweek Music; Week-Long Celebration

The birthday celebration continues! The tour of the Bridgeport Brew Pub was a lot of fun. It was great to know that a business I support is well-worth supporting, and not just because they craft some of the best ales around. Sustainability, along with “reduce, re-use, recycle,” is a daily operation in the company and I got to see it first-hand.

The food was excellent, as were the accompanying drinks. The “Bridge Sampler” is highly recommended by yours truly.

Heading out to see a movie today. Take a guess at which one I’m going to see.

Enjoy the pictures and the music.


Frosty First Day of Spring

The Spring Equinox came in on a cold front this year! Frost on the grass and the rooftops makes it look more like a Winter Solstice morning than the first day of spring.

The sun has entered my sign of Aries; also, today marks International Astrology Day. My week-long birthday celebration continues with dinner and a movie tomorrow, and a behind-the-scenes tour at the Bridgeport Brew Pub on Friday. Looking forward to both, for sure.

Blessed Ostara, everyone. Enjoy these three songs to celebrate the first full day of Spring.

Last Week Tonight: Mike Pence

In this edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John shines the spotlight on Vice President Mike Pence. The Drumpf is bad enough. Pence is almost worse, but that’s like comparing dying in a fire to dying in a building collapse.

His pet rabbit, Marlon Bundo, just signed a book deal. That shows that hard work has nothing to do with publishing a book. It’s all about who you know and who is willing to do the P. R. for you. The amount of remedial reading saturating the market proves it.

On a side note, Mike Pence must have done an online course on evading and avoiding questions, which seems to have been attended by a few bloggers out there. Just sayin’.


Some Songs on Sunday

The spring rains are returning and my week-long birthday celebration has commenced. Enjoy these five choice Sunday songs.


Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Not Bad

I usually don’t get the latest bit of technology that comes out. I’m not trying to keep up with everyone in any rat race. “FOMO” is not something that I experience, so most sales pitches fall flat.

For instance, I only upgraded my computer because it needed to be done, and was only happy when the compatible parts I specified were installed. The powerhouse will run quite well for a while; I might upgrade the processor and graphics card in the next year or so, but that’s all that will need to be done. Same thing with the audio receiver. I’m only shopping for a new one because the old one died, and that one ran well for many years.

It will be time to upgrade my phone soon. I like the look and specifications of the S9+. The cell-phone provider might give me a nice deal on one since my account is in excellent standing. We’ll see what their offers are.


Friday Fun: 5 Songs

Here are five excellent songs to start this weekend with some righteous rocking and rolling.


Full Frontal Thursday: Law & Disorder?

In this installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam talks about the firing of Rex Tillerson and how his replacement, Mike Pompeo, isn’t going to be any more effective than good ol’ Rexy-boy.

She also talks about Cy Vance, a Manhattan-based prosecutor with a mixed-grade report card, and points out the facts that prosecutors can essentially do whatever the fuck they want because it’s technically “legal.”
