About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

That made me laugh!

Virtual hug!

Happy anniversary, mcar!

Zoom and FaceTime are keeping us connected too! Everybody's well and healthy, and staying inside.

No kidding, my friend.

That's a good idea.

Yep. Excellent point!

Not everyone has the time to do the extra research.

We're at almost 3000 deaths


Yet another update

8:05am (all times Pacific, and indicate when I took a photo of the graphic on TV)
Confirmed cases - 143,236
Deaths - 2,479

Confirmed cases - 153,105
Deaths - 2,815

Confirmed cases - 154,578
Deaths - 2,874

Confirmed cases - 160,756
Deaths - 2,952

Confirmed cases - 161,829
Deaths - 2,983

They Definitely need some extra breathing room.


That'd be a good idea. Under the BEST POSSIBLE scenario, we'll all just be emerging from this catastrophe by then. Just barely, I'd expect. This is the kind of blow that's going to take some time to absorb, and then struggle back up onto our feet and recover from. This is too important.

I'm always partial to getting the last word. It'd be terrific - no, downright delicious, if our convention could be rescheduled AFTER theirs. No way to know how they'd try to outplay this, and then how late they'd rescheduled theirs. It's ALWAYS better to get the last word. That's what the reader or listener takes away most easily because it's what they just heard. And if it's clever and catchy enough, it can make you forget what was said, presented, argued, explained, or fact-checked beforehand.

There's time, between the end of the GOP convention (August 24-27) and the First Presidential Debate, September 29 in South Bend, IN.

October 7 - Vice Presidential Debate (Salt Lake City, UT)

October 15 - Second Presidential Debate (Ann Arbor, MI)

October 22 - Third Presidential Debate (Nashville, TN)

November 3 - 2020 Presidential Election


Welcome to DU, la-trucker.

Gad you're here. This place allows us-the-isolated to stay connected with each other.

"Ghastly" is a good word for it.
