Cuba’s former leader Fidel Castro died today at 90! Release the Miami Armada (i.e. ex-Cuban senior citizens living in Miami who will now be sailing home)! It finally happened. Fidel is dead. Wow. I figured he would out live Gorby (just for spite) and be the last surviving Cold War leader, but I guess not. […]


First snowstorm of the year. Sadly I don’t think it will be the last.

Two interesting posts

Two posts by authors more eloquent then me on our forthcoming Presidential situation… “President Pussygrabber” by George R.R. Martin Nov. 9th, 2016 from Martin’s website Not A Blog and you can find it here: “There are really no words for how I feel this morning. America has spoken. I really thought we were better […]


Horrified. Just horrified by the outcome of the election. Sexism and racism certainly played a part in this mess, but yes also anger and a growing unhappiness over change. People don’t like change, I get that. People like to bury their heads in the sand, I get that. But when you don’t pick the most […]

Minnesota Primary Day! I was voter #21.

Making history or herstory!

For the first time in over 200 years of American history a woman has been nominated by a major political party for president of the United States! Hillary Clinton gave a fantastic speech tonight (and quoted the musical Hamilton a few times! and mentioned how she believes in science and climate change!!!) and actually the […]

A great quote by Steve Jobs

“Creativity is just connecting things…A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.” ~ Steve […]


Watching the Chippendale dance tonight with the ladies tonight! Not as sleazy as I thought it was going to be, but the “B” team must have been performing in Minnesota as their choreography seemed a bit lacking.
