A pithy statement from the President of Hillsdale College

Yesterday, Hubby and I went to Bellevue, to a reception for Hillsdale College.  There were hors d'oeuvres beforehand, then a talk by my hero, Dr. Larry Arnn, then a dessert buffet later.  Dr. Arnn was supposed to be speaking about the issue on most of our minds, education and American politics.  We knew the minute …

The week’s best memes, courtesy of my friend Joe at PoliticallyIncorrectHumor.com

These are just too good to pass up.  Enjoy. Just today, Kaiser Permanante suspended, without pay, over 2,500 of their employees, because they did not submit to the invasive medical procedure of Covid vaccination. My sentiments, exactly. And, finally, one from Joe himself.  Thank you!

Curvy or Arches: Cee Neuner’s Challenge for this Week!

Ooh, this one is going to be really fun! One of the original photos I posted on my blog, way back when, is a twisty road in Eastern Washington along the Columbia River Gorge.  I have always loved the shrub-steppe terrain there. How about our kitty, curving her body to rest on our barrel chair? …

Bad news for Facebook is good news for me (and probably for society)

Schadenfreude, anyone?  It seems that the Facebook Empire was taken down today, probably by a hacker.  From this story on the Fox News web site, all parts of the company, including Facebook, Instagram, and What'sApp, were completely unavailable today, all over the world.  Rumors also have it that Facebook employees were prevented from entering their …

Guest Blogger: Ricochet Member Clifford Brown on Biden’s Communist appointee for Comptroller of the Currency

Yes, you read correctly in the post title.  Uncle Joe Biden has nominated a real Communist to the important financial post of Comptroller of the Currency.  Clifford Brown lays it all out for you below.  Be afraid, be very afraid, because your bank accounts will not survive this Communist. Surely someone in the Biden regime …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #168: Seen Better Days

This week's challenge, to show photos of places and things that have seen better days, could start with pictures of myself!  But it won't, sorry.  I will, however, start close to home.  A few blocks away from my house, along the arterial street, is a house that has definitely seen better days.  It's not that …

Just a Friday Quickie. Airport Starbucks.

At the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, we found a very convenient Starbucks at which to buy a nice drink for what promised to be an unpleasant flight (due to mask requirement, which is stupid and very uncomfortable for five hours).  I was very taken with the well-done, lighted wood wall decor there.  Some designer did an …

…and the Straitjacket tightens, again, and again, and again.

In case you haven't noticed, the freedoms of all Americans, and especially those who live in Leftist parts of the country, have continued to be more and more circumscribed.  Each day, we learn of more articles and people banned, canceled, and limited.  I live in one of those hard-Leftist states, and our freedoms are being …

Circles and Wheels: This week’s Photo Challenge from Cee Neuner.

I just had to do this one, for my friend Cee, who doesn't live too far from me.  Circles make the world go round (see what I did there?), and trace the roughly-circular orbits of all the planets and their satellites.  Did you know that the ancient Egyptians did not use the wheel?  They found …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #167: Colors of Autumn

Autumn is my very favorite season, especially after this year's unusually hot summer in the Pacific Northwest.  You could almost say that autumn came early this year, as our trees were dropping brown leaves and dry branches on our house all summer, due to the drought that accompanied the high temperatures. In the Pacific Northwest, …
