About Me

Still an ardent Irish-American Catholic damnYankee Yellow Dog Democrat socialist after all these years. (cue Simon music) Army brat and wife for many years, now have been on the loose far longer than I was married. After my two red chows died, I took in a mini-beagle cross that I named Molly Maguire, thinking she might need a good Irish name like my original real one. Later she got a baby sister, a smooth-coat JRT I named Brigid after the greatest of the ancient Celtic goddesses. My great-grandfather and his son fought for Michael Collins and barely made it out of Ireland one step ahead of John Bull. They slipped over to Wales for new identities and then forward to the States for a fresh start. That makes me second generation of illegal but certainly justified immigrants. There are precious few people to whose defense I fly immediately, but the list includes Hillary Clinton, President Barack Obama even when I disagree with him - it happens! - and living Irish patriots Gerry Adams and Martin \\\'Mind Your Kneecaps\\\' McGuiness. I pray earnestly for a united and free Ireland rescued from all official British occupation, with every square inch of alleged \\\'ancestral lands\\\' now held immorally and illegally by the invaders returned to the rightful owners. Irish-only rule for Ireland. No foreign masters anymore! I find it passing strange when Brits chide ME about \'interfering\' in Irish politics!

Always did like Jimmy.

And I don't understand the Southern Baptists at all. They completely skip over the teaching that in Christ there IS NO male or female, slave or free, etc. We are ONE. How ludicrous for the foot to say to the hand, I'm a better part of the body than you!

Good for them!

Well, sometimes the trolls fart in here, too

But we try to keep the fans going to blow it back outside.

Well, unfortunately, for my own greater good

I've tried to restrict myself to weekend internet life. Otherwise I over-focus. Otherwise known as 'obsess'. Double edged sword.

Lost puppy

I lost a very precious, extensive set of bookmarks last week when I re-installed a fresh Windows 7 OS on my computer. Didn't think to save those bookmarks first (also had to install a new Chrome browser) and no one on the regular Chrome help community has answered my question: Is there any way to recover those bookmarks? They're not in old windows, and previous restore points no longer exist either. Does Google Chrome archive my bookmarks anywhere?

I also lost track of a cloud account in which I'd posted pictures several years ago and can't find anyone to tell me if there's a ghost of a chance of retrieving that, or how. Or where. I haven't found Google helpful about anything.

(cue music) Those were the days, my friend...


I hate when they totally hide things that I get here too late to see! But then, I also hate it when they don't enforce the group standards, too. So maybe I should make my peace with it.

X 1M

The man stands there speaking calmly

and the media describe it as a temper tantrum. If that's so, and he ever does really explode, I'm gonna hide under the bed.

And I guess I'd better have more ponderous things to say or a certain lurker will accuse me of fluff and filler again, asking if that makes me feel like I've accomplished something for the day. In contrast to his helpful expositions.

Well, what can I say? It's firecracker season.

And 2016 is just over the horizon

But barreling down fast on us. Who wants to bet with me against Hillary running AND winning? Hey, I could get rich again!
