CMMC: Midweek Madness. Letter “H”

In my life, the most important thing that starts with the letter "H" is Hillsdale.  Ever since we found out about the College in Michigan, which teaches Classical values, Western Civilization, and the Liberal Arts, my husband and I have been big supporters of the small school which accepts NOT ONE PENNY of government money, …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #199: Mechanical, Industrial

Working in a factory gives me access to industrial and mechanical items all day long, and ever since I started there in July of 2021, I have marveled at the beauty of the items manufactured, and even the scrap material.  Every so often, I need to stop by the tool room to pick up some …

Is Sound Transit’s Link Light Rail a rolling drug den or a rolling homeless shelter?

Sound Transit is the Western Washington “light rail” project, for which people in a large area of the Puget Sound (much of it out of reach of the choo-choo train for decades) pay a property tax, a sales tax, and a car-registration tax every year.  The first leg of the train ran from downtown Seattle …

Sunday Stills Monthly Color Challenge: #Teal or #Aqua

As usual, my favorite example of a natural Teal coloring is Diablo Lake in the North Cascades.  There is a beautiful overlook mini-park just east of the town of Newhalem, and Hubby and I go there a couple of times every year.  The unusual color of the water is caused by glacial runoff, and the …

The Destructive Effects of Leftist Good Intentions

I live in Washington State, which is governed (ruled?) by a heavily DemocRat legislature and ruled by a far-Left DemocRat Dictator (who has been ruling by decree since March of 2020).  In my legislative district, both senators and "representatives" are, of course, DemocRats.  Yesterday in the mail, I received a "2022 Session Report" from one …

Did you know that there’s a Freudian Truck Line?

Well, I didn't either, until we drove up behind one of their trucks on our road trip. How's that for a Freudian name for your trucking company?  Superego Holding!  For those of you who didn't take Psychology 101 in college, the "Superego", according to Sigmund Freud, is a person's conscience, the part of his mind …

Cee’s FFC: Edges and Ledges

On our recent road voyage to Colorado and back, edges and ledges were everywhere.  While waiting for Hubby to bring the car around to load at one of the hotels we stayed at, I happened to glance at the pillar to my right.  Now, this pillar is covered on all sides by what is probably …

The biggest reason to reject both electric cars, and a “cashless” society

Think about it. What obvious characteristic do both electric cars and a "cashless" society (payments only allowed in digital format) possess? Here's another question. Who provides the electricity you use to power your home appliances, heating and air-conditioning, and all your electronics? Think about that, and it will lead you to the answer to my …

Covid Madness on our Road Trip

We have just returned from a two-week road trip, which took us through the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado.  In none of those states did we encounter a mask mandate.  In every state we stopped in, we found some people wearing masks in public (higher percentage in WA than any …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #196: Humor (Updated)

All these humorous signs were collected on our road trip from Washington State to Colorado and back. In the town of Rock Springs, Wyoming, we found a most unlikely restaurant.  A Japanese Steakhouse, called Sapporo.  We had an excellent dinner.  This guy greeted customers outside. That's my six-foot-tall husband for scale.  The sumo wrestler is …
