I’ve been thinking about how ancient Egypt fell

For a few months now, I've been listening to the Egyptian History Podcast, and reading Toby Wilkinson's book on the rise and fall of ancient Egypt.  I thought to myself, why is ancient Egypt, which lasted from 3000BC to about 30BC, no longer a great civilization?  What was it about ancient Egypt that led to …

CFFC: Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: City Structures

I've traveled to cities large and small, old and new, in my 73 years.  In all of my travels, my very favorite city is an old one, a college town in England that has been settled for around 2,000 years.  I first went there in 1984 with my first husband.  We liked it so much, …

US Supreme Court, in a 6-3 decision, overturns Roe Vs Wade. What it actually means. New stories added.

First of all, I would like to thank President Donald Trump for appointing three of the six Justices who voted to overturn the 1970s case that found a "right to privacy" in the Constitution where it did not, and does not, exist.  The hysterical Left, for whom abortion is their Holy Sacrament, were losing their …

Repost with updates: Now, there’s an entire month: “Pride Month”?

Back in August of 2013, I wrote a post on this blog entitled "I do not understand "gay pride".  Below is the entire post. Why would you be proud of being perverted? Why would you be proud of engaging in behavior that is antithetical to the survival of the human race? I stand by that …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge 192: Earth

I have a bit of a problem with today's topic.  It sounds to me a bit like "earth worship".  I have always appreciated how God put us on the most beautiful planet known in the Universe.  I appreciate how wonderful our planet is, and the fact that we humans are at the top of the …

The Universal Villain

I remember in a science class in high school, we were taught that there is one "universal solvent"; one substance that dissolves the vast majority of other stuff.  That universal solvent is Water.  Most stuff, immersed in water and given enough time, will dissolve. So I have come up with a new concept, the "Universal …

Insanity, Squared.

Did you know that the government of Germany has approved "assisted suicide" or the correct term, Euthanasia?  And with Germany's recent history in mind, that makes the idea of medical professionals, (whose Hippocratic Oath demands that they "First, do no harm"), being directed to help people to die, even more horrific than it already is. A …

A very unfortunate Covid-policy casualty

For 50 years, the University Unitarian Church in Seattle put on a Handel’s Messiah Sing-along, Play-along on the day after Christmas.  Yes, that’s 50 years!  They packed the sanctuary to the rafters with singers and orchestra, and anyone could come and sing or play, just for the price of a ticket.  The Messiah was a …

A sordid tale from Seattle’s anti-religion stance.

A friend of mine sent me the link to an article on the Heritage Foundation's Daily Signal site. He is connected to the mainstay downtown Union Gospel Mission, which is facing a deadly threat from a lawsuit by a person who applied for a position there, and objected to the Mission's requirement for all its …
