Ayaan Hirsi Ali is my Hero!

Posted by on Jun 17, 2014 in Books | 0 comments

She really is, and I’ve been following her for years. I’ve read her books. So when Brandies University uninvited her because of her negative (and very true) views on Islamism, I thought it was an outrage. What are our Universities coming to when a speaker who speaks the truth gets uninvited because her views are unpopular with progressive liberals? And why, for heavens sake, do liberals not see the true evil Islamism? It’s a mystery to me. Today’s progressive liberals are craven cowards. If you don’t know who she...

I read and saved this article from a year ago or so. As a Libertarian, I thought it was spot on!

Freddy, My English Mastiff

Posted by on Jun 16, 2014 in English Mastiff | 0 comments

Here’s my lovely puppy, Freddy, an English Mastiff, who is now 7 months old. If you want a laid back, easy going dog, the English Mastiff is the dog for you. At 7 months he now weighs nearly 100 lbs., and I expect him to reach at least 170 lbs. Both his parents were about 180. Yet he still thinks he can sit on my lap! And guess what? I let him do it, for a little bit anyway, until my blood circulation gets cut off! While they drool, and poop a lot (we have nicknamed him Sir Poopsalot), these dogs absolutely love their masters. He gets...

A New Puppy: English Mastiff called “Freddy”

Posted by on Feb 23, 2014 in Art | 5 comments

In January, my husband and I bought an English Mastiff puppy. We named him Fredrick II, after my husband’s beloved Lab Fred who died many years ago. Freddy, as we call him in his puppy-hood, is the most delightful, friendly and trusting puppy I’ve ever had. We always had dogs when I was growing up in the 70s. My father was a bird hunter, as well as a hunter of mule deer and other large creatures roaming around Eastern Montana. So naturally we had Labradors. The English Mastiff is a royal dog, and ancient breed that the Romans used...

David Sedaris: A Big Family

Posted by on Nov 2, 2013 in Art | 0 comments

I’ve been reading David Sedaris for years and years. Lucky for me, he actually came to Billings, Montana in 2010 and of course I attended! Sadly I was unable to wait around for him to sign my copy of “When You Are Engulfed in Flames”, one of my favorite books of his. I read this book in one big gulp on a flight from the US to Holland, laughing the entire time. In fact, I noticed a few sideways glances from fellow passengers as I hooted and snorted through the long, long flight. For all my friends out there who may have...

Levels of Life

Posted by on Oct 4, 2013 in Art | 1 comment

I just received “Levels of Life“, by Julian Barnes, which I’m really looking forward to sinking my teeth into. Last year I read and then re-read immediately his book “Nothing To Be Frightened Of”, a meditation on death…a disquisition that addresses religion, philosophy, literature, identity, memory, evolutionary biology, and the nature of the universe. It is funny and frank. Completely irresistible. As the Mail on Sunday’s (London) Craig Brown say’s, “Barnes is wonderfully adept at keeping...

Global Warming – The New Religion

Posted by on Oct 2, 2013 in Energy | 0 comments

I’ve been thinking about global warming a lot lately, wondering why so many believe in it when the science is far from “settled”. So when I read this recently, I was relieved and quite pleased.

Camille Paglia nails it down in an article from the Wall Street Journal. I’ve read her for years. She is entertaining, savvy, smart and clues us in about Art and Capitalism. Thank you,...
