About Me

I've been a female working a "man's job" (mechanical engineer), stay at home Mom (6 kids), working Mom (6 kids to put through college), unemployed, underemployed, temporarily employed and now working from home! We live on an old, small farm with 2 dogs and 2 cats in the house, variable number of chickens out in the yard.

Did Romney actually work with Democrats in Massachusetts,

or did he merely go along with a veto proof legislature while spending all his time readying his resume for a Presidential run?

Either you were knowingly lying or you are absolutely ignorant - which one is it, Mr. Romney?

"The President has not signed one new free trade agreement in the past four years."

"While he angered his allies in organized labor, Obama secured congressional approval of free-trade deals with Colombia, Panama and South Korea, and signed them in October 2011."

Plus side to global climate change - now that tropical diseases

are becoming a first world problem, maybe some real first world money will be spent to find vaccines and cures!

There is a very tiny wren flying around my very cluttered craft-room-to-be -

here's hoping I can catch it and get it back outside!

Let me be the first to say: This year's Academy Award for Best Picture will go to Lincoln;

Best Actor, Daniel Day Lewis

"rope-a-dope"

"The rope-a-dope is a boxing fighting style commonly associated with Muhammad Ali in his 1974 Rumble in the Jungle match against George Foreman.

In competitive situations other than boxing, rope-a-dope is used to describe strategies in which one party purposely puts itself in what appears to be a losing position, attempting thereby to become the eventual victor."

About those loose seats on American Airlines....

Meanwhile, Robert Gless, deputy director of the Air Transport Division of the Transport Workers Union of America, dismissed the notion that the problems with loose seats were linked to labor issues as "without any basis in fact."

Seat installation work is largely carried out by outside contractors, rather than maintenance personnel employed by the airline, he said in a statement.

"Problems related to seats are less likely a labor problem, but rather a management issue related to outsourcing work to third-party facilities," he said.

American Airlines plans to increase its use of outside maintenance facilities, including in China and other overseas locations, as it seeks to exit bankruptcy, he added.

I love my crows!

I'm hoping the presence of a small murder of crows will be enough to keep the hawks out of the chicken yard during this fall's migration. I already saw a small bird out back mobbing a hawk about 4 times its size!

Face palm - or why I don't discuss politics with my brother......

Did you know that Obama talks about nothing but abortion and the gays, and that he should focus on working people?

Some more Todd Aiken blow back -
