Short Post

interesting short post about self – discovery & beginnings / 2nd chances.

Kota Kai

So I wanted to share with you all that I’ve done the most irrational thing I have ever done.

I’ve withdrawn from my classes, and I’ve taken a leave from my job. And honestly, I have never felt more free in my life.

I’m going to be spending the coming weeks very devoted to creating things and I think you all will benefit from it too!

So keep an eye out for me, we’ll be seeing a lot more of each other! If you have requests for something you’d like me to talk about, but let me know!

Today was a day…

It’s times like this when I wonder how advanced we really are in the industrialized world. Seriously…..

It's a Thought

I worked 2 hours over.  And I still wasn’t done.

I’m not doing that tomorrow.  Just so you know.  I’m NOT.

I was going to go in early and then I remembered I’m supposed to go to the doctor tomorrow.

And I’m going to demand drugs for this mental illness.  I am.

I’m really bad at this.

I have a hard time verbalizing this  issue.  And I know that seems crazy when you look at all the crap I write on Tumblr, but its true.

So.  Anyway.  That’s the goal.  Verbalize to the doctor that I am struggling.

I will report back on this subject tomorrow.

Ode to the great black box of wine

Hmm….. Call me ” old – fashioned ” or even better,SERVE me an old – fashioned martini 🙂 ! but I prefer my alcohol from a bottle or at least a can.

Musings of a mad woman

So if you haven’t heard Black box wine is a award winning box wine. 50 gold medals, 29 wine enthusiasts best buy awards. Definitely an enabler for shenanigans.

I am 1/2 the carbon footprint of glass bottles, so I am hoping Leonardo DiCaprio appreciates I’m doing my part to save the environment. Cabernet Sauvignon is probably the best, but honestly after a glass who really cares enough to ask “what is this vintage, variety?”

So how is this a story……anytime I precursor a post with wine it’s probably going to be thought provoking. If I start it with whiskey, it’s going to start PG-13 and as with drinking end up MA rating. I just want to make my readers aware of time stamps on my post, take note. Right now, I’m comparing a smooth glass of opus one to box wine and it really seems equatable. That is a true…

The Donald Trump Trainwreck

Well.  I must’ve been mistaken. Or half – awake. Or BOTH. I thought I read a Beliefnet piece taking up for The Donald being persecuted for his faith ( although I think that he believes that he’s God. 🙂 ). Personally I think his whole campaign has been a multi – gazillion dollar publicity stunt.

Hey – if he wants he can move Trump Towers, Trump Plaza AND his casinos airlifted & shipped a section at a time to an island in the Pacific ( he could do Nauru Island a WORLD of good. Look up Nauru to see what I mean. Or Pitcairn. ) or someplace in the Caribbean.

His ego would take up 2 / 3rds of the space.

I also believe that Ann Coulter is a secret liberal who fakes being a raging hyper – conservative. 🙂

Mummy Identification Still Uncertain Science

This is because after 2 or 3 thousand years, perhaps even less, DNA begins to degrade. Moreso if the tissue that it’s part of is dehydrated by elements other than desert sand & heat & preservatives like myrrh,aloes, & frankincense. The royal personage is reasonably well – preserved, but those elements have more than likely shortened the DNA ” chain ( s ) ” containing vital information on who these royals were in life. & why cloning Rameses or “King Tut ” is highly unlikely. As to incest among royals & nobles in Egypt, this practice was part of their belief system : The nobles were supposedly descended from the gods, so marriage outside the noble / royal lineage, in effect, ” diluted ” their divinity. King Tutankhamun was married to his sister, Ankhesenamun, even though the union didn’t produce an heir to the 18th dynasty throne ( & 2 small mummified fetuses were discovered in ” King Tut’s ” tomb ) whereas Rameses the Great produced a small legion of royal heirs.

Egypt is a big area of interest of mine, & not just because of mummy movies. 🙂 I’ve seen ” Treasures of Tutankhamun ” on one of the exhibition’s visits to the U.S. ( 1977 ) & a Rameses the Great exhibit in Memphis in 1987. & my stepsister has been to the Valley of the Kings albeit roughly 2 decades ago.


King Tut is the only 18th Dynasty pharaoh whose mummy has been identified with certainty, says a new analysis.

9 Reasons My God’s Not Dead

Okay….. God’s not dead, BUT, He’s just tired of knee – jerk, behind – kissing followers who act like GROUPIES & don’t actually put the teachings of Jesus into practice  ( feeding the poor & homeless, teaching the illiterate, helping the sick, aiding the less fortunate, etc.), or Buddhists who just sit & chant, or Muslims who observe the Five Pillars of the Islamic faith.

I don’t really like the pat answers like ” you can see God in a sunrise “, & such. Generic, pious platitudes that seem deep for a few moments but aren’t very satisfying. Chocolate for the soul.

I, like the original Founding Fathers, consider myself a Deist. They believed in A god, just not necessarily ” Big G ” God. My belated disclaimer.

Tools May Have Been First Money

My first entry using my new machine. Using a touch – screen computer has been an exercise in patience & controlling heaps of irritation. 🙂 That being said, this story is a very interesting little find. Although it may have been a sight more helpful if you were a DIY kind of person or were the village handy – man / tinker type of person. Early tech as a form of currency – I definitely think Bob Vila would approve. Makes me wonder what kind of currency humanity will have in about 200 – 300 – something years. Maybe barter will make a big – time comeback.

Ancient humans traded tools between tribes and they gained social significance.

Let’s Create A Fine Chain By Sharing The Links…

I’ve missēd a bunch on here, but I’m having a ” get to you ” session with a new computer. Good to be back !

a cooking pot and twisted tales


‘Welcome to all my new follows and friends and Welcome to the click-a-link club.

I appreciate the choice you made in deciding to follow my blog, which I consider as a present.

If you notice, as much as I am a very individually minded person, I am also a very community minded and conscious person. In simple terms, I like people.

In here, I try to have a warm atmosphere that is welcoming for all and I cook in large quantities, because I never know who is coming to tea or dinner.

So, do make yourself comfortable and feel free to say hey anytime.

Are you comfortable now? Good. Now put up your feet on that plump purple cushy foot-rest in the corner and let’s have a quick chat while you get your feet massaged.

My bit of experience of blogging has shown me how grueling it…

Science Can Be Interesting ! Symphony of Science !

After being cooped up due to a mild ” blizzard ” ( In the mid – South, an INCH of snow qualifies as a ” blizzard “. 🙂 ) & being unable to leave my apartment ( Not a fan of frostbite or losing feeling in my appendages, that sort of thing. ), I both started to rediscover the mystic philosophical writings of Jalaluddin Rumi AND Symphony of Science on Youtube. Carl Sagan, Brian Cox, Professor Michio Kaku, Stephen Hawking, Neil deGrasse Tyson & ALMOST a cast of thousands – maybe dozens, at least. Auto – tuned physicists, astronomers, planetary geologists & anthropologists !

Fun with science ! I only hope I cut & pasted the link correctly. I’ve had trouble with that in the past…..
