Cat Eye

I love this. A perfect picture of sibling love. I wish my two cats would treat each other like this, instead mine keep trying to prove which one is in charge. This is so cute, and thing what a story could be written around this picture. Hugs

Today’s the day

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 06:54

Well today is the day.   My whole routine is shot.   I had to get up at the ungodly hour of 5 AM.  I have my disability hearing this morning at 8:30.  I have to be there by 8 AM.  I had a bad week to start with.  I had a major flash back this week.  My own fault sort of.  I was looking for things on YouTube to watch and saw the title of a movie called “for my brother”.   The blur simply said a brother gives his all to protect his younger brother.  I thought great a feel good movie about love.  I was so wrong.  It was about an abused boy who from 7 to 17 had to put up with horrific sexual abuse to save his younger brother from have to do it.  I went over the edge for hours, kept losing time.  I wont bore you with all I went through, ROn came home and knew something was wrong, he figured it out quick.  He did what he could, but it put me on edge so bad that yesterday I lost it again.  Went in to full blown panic attack.  Ron had to give me extra of my own meds and then the meds they told him to give me what I get in a state like this.  That med works, but it makes me like a zombie.   It really stops the panic and the vortex that takes over my mind , but for a few days I am stupified it seems.  SO today I am dressed up nice and ready to go to my hearing.  ROn keeps telling me not to worry, it wont matter.  He says if it happens OK it will be easier for us, if not we will make it.   OK got to go.  I will post how it goes when I get back.  Hugs

I love the photos. I am glad to be able to see such places through Pedrol’s blog. It is a grand way to travel the world with a click of the mouse. Stop by the site and say hello. Thanks. Hugs

#flashfiction friday: St. Patrick’s Day at the Drunken Sasquatch

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 19:55

I found this short story to hold the promise of a much longer work, and it delivers on that promise. The story works well known common things everyone knows with seeming as common “other” elements. The working of these things together is a startlingly refreshing read. Enjoy. Hugs

Life in the Realm of Fantasy

There’s something about St. Patrick’s Day that brings out the crazies, even in Seattle. Or, should I say, especially in Seattle. If there is one night of the year when were-dragons should stay home and avoid the tavern, it’s March 17th.

Now in a place like Seattle, folks like me usually go unnoticed because the Emerald City is just that kind of town. The people are relaxed and accepting here. It’s like they don’t even see us.

Oh, sure, a few members of my community aren’t the kind of people most folks  want to know. Being a reporter, I tend to come across them in the course of my work, and let’s just say it’s not all rainbows and unicorn farts for  some of us anymore.

Modern society has ruined the weaker minded. You didn’t hear this from me, but some of the most unusual and largest thefts of metal…

What Is Odd About You – an Informal Experiment 

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 18:55

This is a grand post. It has a lot of important information. I had wanted to do this DNA test back some time ago when it was the first version. I was disappointed to find they had stopped it. Now it is back and better than it was. I so glad as I want to do this. I will start saving the money to get mine and Ron’s done. Thanks for a grand post Spiders. Hugs


I got to thinking. Scary, I know! What occurred to me is that being able to move your toes independently, curling your tongue, and wiggling your ears are actually primitive abilities.

First, if you can, watch this:

If you can’t or don’t want to watch the video: lie your arms flat, palm up, and touch your thumb to your pinkie finger. If you see this raised thingie in your wrist…

…then you have the unnecessary muscle, palmaris longis, that is only really useful for climbing trees freehand. I have the palmaris longis in both my arms. Hubby does not, in either arm.

Clearly the three Auricularis muscles (ear movers, if you didn’t watch) are more developed in those of use who can wiggle our ears or scalp. From the video, I understand that both of these are traits that quite a few of us have evolved beyond.

I’d like to…

Great read about the United States

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 17:55

A well written piece that says the truth that needs to be proclaimed. Thank you. Hugs


Let’s get rid of a few bits of dreck, for the sake of mental hygiene:

1) Women don’t answer to you, or to the government for having sex, and being forced to have a child is not a fit punishment for what you perceive as promiscuity. Leave other people’s genitals alone.

2) If you are using phrases like “Confronting the culture to advance God’s kingdom,” you’re the American Taliban, a threat to the Republic, and a disgrace to Christianity. I am not only disinterested in your blather, I consider you a serious threat to a well-ordered, peaceful society. If you are pushing this nonsense onto children, you are a moral leper.

3) At this point in the “debate,” if you can’t cite SEVERAL peer-reviewed articles in legitimate scientific journals I’m not interested in your “contrarian” opinion about climate change. The science is as in as science ever is – catastrophic…
