Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, all! The kids are both here and we even got a little snow. I'm going to spend the day cooking and listening to "Little Drummer Boy" on repeat. Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Laughter Is The Best Medicine

Going in a slightly different direction this week, mainly because I'm in that change of weather funk and the news tends to trigger my anger and depression. What a world we live in...

Summer 2017

 I tend to take lots of pictures and download them onto my computer, where they are never seen again. So I'm thinking I might start doing a monthly "round up" of some of my favorites. Here are a few from my summer. The "people" pictures I save for Facebook, tagging those involved. So what I have left is apparently "nature" pictures, for the most part. And some art I bought. And one of the numerous tree frogs that began life in the swimming pool we didn't use this summer.

History in Memes and Tweets

It really was a shitty week: the kind where I had to cut my time on social media for my own mental health.

The Difference Between Cats and Dogs (or is that, Women and Men?)

 I love when this kind of stuff pops up on Tumblr. I think at some level, we're all aware of things like this, the differences between men and women. I suppose most of it is socialized into us, but I wonder how much of it is also simply genetic. I know there have been brain studies that show different parts of the brain "lighting up" according to gender, and my psychology side is always fascinated and wants to know why it happens, not just that it happened. "Nature vs Nurture" is one of my favorite studies! (I know, I'm a bit weird.) I really should have gone into research instead of studying counseling and child development. It just didn't dawn on me when I was 22.

I made the mistake of getting on FB this afternoon. Wow! So many people completely missing the point. So I started hitting them with Tweets. Not that it'll make any difference, because some people are completely without empathy or even have the desire to try and understand, but I think they know when they've pissed me off!

History in Memes and Tweets

A friend sent me this after we were talking about our "misspent youth". What can I say?  It was the '80s and I had a good time!

Rainbow Connection

I challenge you to watch the video and not sing along! I grew up with Sesame Street and The Muppet Show. I do believe that was kids' T.V. done right! Their messages were always about inclusiveness--for everyone. So glad that never changed. [little blurb here]

Mixed Bag

I found it was a good week to stay off of FB as much as possible. Plus, too much worrying about my friends and family hunkered down in Florida. I offered my extra room, but...
