Who Says Protest Doesn’t Work?

Just because it made me smile.

Filosofa's Word

In recent months we have seen a number of protests in the U.S., from the Women’s March on January 21st, to the People’s Climate March on April 29th, and most recently the March for Truth on June 3rd. Some have said these protests accomplish nothing, but I have disagreed, and today I have proof that organized protests DO sometimes make enough waves to bring about change.

uk-petition.jpgIn January, just a week after Trump’s inauguration, UK Prime Minister Theresa May invited Trump to make a state visit to the UK later this year, which he gladly accepted.  However, the good citizens of the UK do not want Donald Trump to visit … understandably.  Early on, citizens and members of Parliament called for May to rescind her invitation, which she refused to do. In February, a petition circulated and was signed by more than 1.8 million…

Which one is which?

I had been hungry for Boudin all week long, and finally, yesterday I had gotten them out of the freezer. A box of hot jalapeno Boudin for they guys and another box of regular Boudin for the ladies.  I was careful when I opened the packages, made sure I didn’t mix them up, even used different plates when I thawed them.  Continue reading

I Am A Nonperson … So Are You … Just Ask Eric Trump

If you are not a person, do you still have a persona?
Waving the paper towel. So proud to be not one of THEM.

Filosofa's Word

You can pretty much gauge what type of a news day it is by the number of paper towels used in my household.  Here’s the scenario:  I see a news story that makes me angry, and I curse whichever Trump caused my anger, usually Donald himself.  If it makes me really angry, I stick out my tongue and do a raspberry … ppppbbbbbttttthhhh.  (Yes, I know … very mature …) I then go get a paper towel to clean the droplets off my screen.  And so goes the day.  At the end of the night, as I am preparing for bed, I check the paper towels.  If there is still ½ roll or more on the dowel, I figure it was a pretty peaceful news day.

Tonight there is only one lonely paper towel left on the roll.  And here is part of the reason:

Eric Trump.  Eric came flitting…

Heavenly Pancakes

pancakes with salad

I love pancakes, especially the thin European pancakes.  I use them like I would use a flatbread and put my salad on top of it for a quick lunch. I make pizza pancakes or fill them with leftovers; if I have a sweet tooth, I use my jams or fruits.

Rolled up with homemade Strawberry jam

I use the same basic recipe since I started cooking, but somehow they pancakes turned out differently, and it startled me. How could that be? Sometimes I had a fluffy and light pancake, other times a heavy pancake -still eatable, but different! I didn’t change the ingredients, so there had to be a logical explanation. I made the flour responsible for the consistency of the pancakes, or the eggs -something had to get the blame.

TrumpCare Passes The House

Sad day for everybody -even for the ones who don’t see it yet. 2018 can’t come quickly enough. I hope the people who voted for this mess won’t be hurt by it.

Flower or Weed?

april 2017 006

Our yard is a mess right now. The weather doesn’t help, it’s cloudy and cold. It had rained all night long, dirt had been washed on the walkways. Everything has turned green already and lots of it are weeds. Every year I pull them all and every year they come back -all of it. It’s a race or a competition, and I am not so sure if I will ever win.
