Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #221: Favorite Flowers

Like Tina, I am no flower expert, so I often don't know what a flower is called when I see it.  But I always try to get photos of new flowers, and new versions of old ones.  I think that my very favorite flower is the azalea that my real estate agent gave me for …

In Mourning Today. Hagrid has passed away.

I saw the news this morning, that Robbie Coltrane, the actor who played Rubeus Hagrid, Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts in the eight Harry Potter movies, had passed away.  This makes me very sad, and I'm sure I speak for all my Harry Potter fan readers.  The first movie, which I saw just …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #220: One subject, three ways

Whenever I am photographing something I like, I always take multiple shots from different angles and distances.  A pleasing subject is often pleasing in numerous ways.  Take the beautiful vase of flowers my husband sent me for Valentine's Day this year.  It had so many different flowers, different colors, and different angles, I just had …

Has anyone from Money Magazine actually visited King County?

On the KOMO Web site today, October 5, 2022, there is a headline that reads: Money Magazine rates King County third-best place to live in the country. Now, the Pacific Northwest does have the ideal climate in America, in my most humble Seattle-native opinion, so that's one thing in King County's favor.  However, these other …

Kids today…not informed about Socialism

Kids today are not educated, but indoctrinated in Leftist ideology, which says that Capitalism is evil and oppressive, while Socialism is good, and involves people sharing what they have earned.  And Government will give you what you need, with no strings attached.  The meme above, and the one below, are just priceless.  That's all I …

Sunday Stills: Dilapidated, desolate places and things

Maybe it's only me, but I seem to see a lot of news stories about bad things happening to people in cities recently.  Like the street crime in Chicago and New York City; homeless drug addicts attacking walkers on Venice Beach in California; and AntiFa attacking drivers stopped at traffic lights in Portland, Oregon. Aside …

Not only can the Left not tolerate humor, they cannot even recognize it!

A Ricochet friend posted the above meme on Facebook this week.  Facebook actually fact-checked it, and labeled it "False Information"!  Now, I'm sure my readers are much smarter than that, and can immediately tell that it is humorous.  It obviously makes fun of the emails that used to be very common in our in-boxes, from …

Is James Madison spinning in his grave?

If he could see the desecration of his never-before-played crystal flute, he surely would be.  The Library of Congress let a fat pig rapper, also known as "Lizzo", play his flute.  EWW! Sorry, but this cannot be "unseen", so I did not put it on the front page.  I guess it's a good thing the …
