My ( final) Thoughts on Elections 2016


Thank the American God it's over. What we have now is One Nation Under God. It says so, right there, see? United States. United. Capital U. How can it be anything but united? Small u. Four years ago, I wrote an article about the US Elections. I said racism had a major part to play.… Continue reading My ( final) Thoughts on Elections 2016

A Post About ME


I started off by writing a major told-you-so post about #Trump and #Elections2016. Wanna read what I wrote? Head over to the bottom of this post. I'll put it there in italics. Not that it matters. We can only look ahead now. No use, as no one in my family used to say, whining because… Continue reading A Post About ME

The Second Annual Birthmonth Festival


As you may remember, most of you very carefully and diligently ignored the First Annual Birthmonth Festival. Now here is your chance to do so again. Yes, there is a difference. The last time around your indifference lasted a whole month. This time around, given that the world's collective attention span is shorter than Trump's fingers,… Continue reading The Second Annual Birthmonth Festival

Shameless Flamboyance!


I didn't see it coming. It was all coming along so well. It came as a bit of shock actually. But let me back track a bit and provide some backing track to the song of my life over the  past few months. I used to write this blog fairly regularly. When I first started… Continue reading Shameless Flamboyance!

Why I talk to myself


I updated my blog recently. I don't know that you noticed, so I am taking the logical way out and announcing it. So you know. Which you won't if you don't read my blog. But you are, because you're here. You are here, right? I'm not just talking to myself? I do that a lot,… Continue reading Why I talk to myself

Rushin’ Retirement


I met this lady online who reads this blog. From all accounts, she loves the posts. With her birthday coming up, she requested that I write a post and dedicate it to her. For her birthday. Which is today. March 7th. Well, who am I to refuse a request for an article from a female… Continue reading Rushin’ Retirement

Daniels come to judgement!


We're a judgemental lot, we are. I'm no sociologist, and far too lazy to research it, but it may be that making judgements is at the root of homo sapien's instinct for survival. In the modern era, with the interweb weaving it's magical tendrils all around us and enabling snappy judgements, we are more enmeshed… Continue reading Daniels come to judgement!

My experience with Social Media in 2015


2015 was the year I invested in a "social presence". Here is my honest review and my responses to the current state. Facebook provides the bulk of my traffic, followed by WordPress. Facebook has destroyed the concept of Friend and totally diminished and warped the meaning of the word "like". I received connection requests from… Continue reading My experience with Social Media in 2015

Midnight cooking


We spent a brief year in the little flat in Lake Gardens. You have met this flat ( apartment, if American ) before. This is the same flat that saw us beat off the Cantankerous Cat. You know also, by now, that we had to contend with Peeping Toms. And, of course there were neighbour.… Continue reading Midnight cooking

Why I don’t shop at the GAP anymore


The header says it. I won't. I don't. Not anymore. My first ever pair of blue jeans were from GAP. In the late 70's these were flared jeans of the requisite blue denim. As a penniless ( or paisaless ) teenager I've had my fashion challenges. Some of these have been documented, notably in the story… Continue reading Why I don’t shop at the GAP anymore
