Maysoon Zayid – Look her Up !

I caught her TED talk ” 99 problems & Cerebral Palsy’s Just One ” ( TED Talks are very often humourous, laugh out loud funny, touching, as well as educational & SERIOUS. Dah, dah, dah, dah ). Her presentation ( Yes, let’s go all SERIOUS & call it a ” presentation “. 🙂 ) was about her early life through her College, & her positive & negative experiences with cerebral palsy. I can relate, as I have c.p. & it ain’t going away anytime soon, unless there’s reincarnation, in which I get another crack at this crazy thing called life, or unless my relatives decide to ” Ted Williams ” me, in which case I spend a few centuries in the freezer section at ALCOR or the Phoenix Foundation. 🙂 Humour & disability would seem to be incongruous, but not so much as one would think. On a basic, psychological level, it’s a GREAT coping mechanism, & it can keep depression from getting to you, or anger. ( I sometimes have anger management issues, like getting used to my Dell Inspiron which is essentially a big touch – screen. Try this when you’re spastic & your medication hasn’t kicked in yet….. you’ll see, hahahahahaha. 🙂 or piloting a power chair down the road / sidewalk & the joystick goes flying into the bushes. Then you NEED a sense of humour ! Or else a very large camouflaged flask full of vodka.Anyway, I found Maysoon Zayid’s talk to be very funny AND inspiritional, even motivational. Google it !

You’re Welcome ! It was no biggie.:)

Yes…..I had been drinking

The painting ( ? ) at the post’s beginning is DEFINITELY a conversation starter. I took some photos at a local shop on the Square, & I will post THEM -IF I can get my ” smartphone ” to remember my e – mail address. Touch screen devices are NOT my friends.:)

Musings of a mad woman


Seriously autocorrect autocorrected me four times before I could even post last night so I gave up and passed out.

Apparently, I delayed posting and saved it as a draft. It was embarrassing funny and trust me I saved the world from my extreme crazy. I deleted it, but my rantings and extreme love affair with Hemingway made me laugh out loud. The planning of my scheme to drive to key west and steal a couple five finger Hemingway cats. Then a realization, why am I so damn muddy in my kitchen. Then a sudden craving for McDonald’s, but I’d have to Uber so I gave up on the Big Mac.

All I know is I made it to bed with a trail of my clothing and tears, up three stories. I blew off some much needed steam, wrote a blog post about cats and love, and at some point…

The ignorance of tea party conservatives is so outrageous it’s scary

Endeavouring to explain how the Tea Party became the homophobic, bigoted, paranoid, mostly whites – only, Protestant Christian only, Young Earth Creationists, geocentric, I could go on & on ad infinitum, ad nauseum, ad absurdum, until the cows come home, until hell freezes over, etc.

Lloyd Lofthouse

Some guy or gal named Axelrod (probably a guy but you can’t tell on the Internet) demonstrated his ignorance of the tea party movement and its claim that it only wants a smaller federal government. Axelrod revealed a truly frightening fact—that there are many really ignorant people in America who are allowed to vote. (

Axelrod claimed that the basic tenets of the Tea Party were to reduce taxes, limit the size of government and hold people responsible for their actions. Okay, but there are a lot of facts conservatives ignore that the tea party movement might be the 21st century’s racist Nazi party or Ku Klux Klan. Read on to discover why I dare say this.

Where were the tea party people when President Ray-gun (do you remember President Reagan’s Star Wars weapons program? Probably not) added $2.6 Trillion to the national…
