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.

If December 22 really was the end of the world -

would you spend the time remaining partying/meeting with friends and relatives/engaging in a favorite activity

or tidying up the house and cleaning the closets?

Hillary Clinton

Elizabeth Warren

Kirsten Gillibrand

Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Open letter to internet advertisers:

You already caught my interest when I saw your ad and clicked your link. Why do you have to spoil things by demanding I sign in with my e-mail, my e-mail again to confirm I got it right, a password, my password again and a hint for the password before letting me see the product? Trust me, I'm long gone by then!

"Editorial: Ordination of women would correct an injustice" NCR Editorial Staff


Creepiest Christmas ad - ever!

The one where the man is giving a diamond pendent to the young daughter of the woman he is planning to marry.......

It's not "entitlement reform", it's a default on Social Security!

Recent photos of Romney suggest he isn't trying any more -

He's stopped combing his hair.

Which raises the question, would he have combed his hair as President?

Anyone have any idea whatever happened to that crane that collapsed during Sandy?
