It’s like a train wreck!


I know “the opera ain’t over till the fat lady sings.”

But, it’s looking like it might be bad, and I have a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. AND I never took anything for granted, as I saw the “jump on the Trump bandwagon” steamroll early on.

I’m not sure I can take anymore of this speculating, and I’m tired and thankfully I have a job to get up for early in the morning. But like a train wreck, I am just not sure I can turn away, shut the TV off, and actually go to sleep. (Though, my neck was really bothering me today, so I took a muscle relaxer not too long ago.)

I just don’t get it . . . 😦

They reported earlier that the Dow is expected to plunge tomorrow . . . so glad we pulled what little money we had left out of the market just in time!

I just heard the Canadian website crashed, due to all the Americans who now want to leave. The news pundits are comparing it to Brexit. OMG!!!

Are you watching the results come in? Your thoughts, feelings?

Just something I was thinking about . . .

It’s gonna be an entertaining year!


{Laughing} Not sure what to say about this picture that is going around on Facebook. It was even more interesting reading the comments {laughing again}. I have no idea who Jim Ballard is, other than he works at Tea Party Patriots – well that says a lot. Is it just me, or is this the stuff nightmares are made of? Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have major issues with every person on this “dream ticket,” just most of them. Two of them, I don’t know anything about, yet. I’ve heard Dr. Ben Carson speak, and he seems to have some sensibility. But the top three in the photo – oh my lord, sounds like chaos to me . . .

What do you think about all of this? Do you think Donald Trump has any real staying power? I have always said we need someone in office who is not a politician, but I also concluded that thought with someone who understands what it’s like to struggle to pay their bills, you know the common person – not someone even further removed from reality. Is it just me, or does it seem like the only thing worse than a true politician is a one-percenter?

China’s Moon?


When our government decided to cancel NASA’s Constellation Program several years back, which would have taken us back to the moon and to Mars, Homer Hickman (author of Rocket Boys and October Sky) wrote a short story set in the not-so-distant future. This was his take on America in a “post-NASA” world, a world where the United States is not the leader in human space flight exploration.  I wanted to share it with you, as I have some specific opinions that are of a similar topic I will be writing on in the future, and thought this would be a perfect preface.  It’s an interesting tale, for sure – and a little disturbing to say the least.

I hope you find it interesting, as well, whether you support NASA’s endeavors or not. Oh, and were you aware that China landed its first rover on the moon last December?
