I've spent most of the day wasting time.  I do that a lot.  I did however, buy my grandson an 'only child' card.  Is he? No, but his big sister did run off to her first year at college leaving him 'alone'.  Getting back to my new job, or career as I prefer to think of it.  I've decided to 'waste time' and get paid to do so.  I won't charge much so more 'time wasters' can afford to use my service.  It will be simple.  Just forward a list to me  of things you didn't get done.  Can it be much simpler than that?  I don't think so.  That's all you have to do.  I will take care of the rest.  Now and this is an important now, don't misunderstand.  I'm not going to do anything of the things you put off doing, that's not what you're paying me for.  I'll explain.  Once you've assigned your 'wasted time' to me, its all on my shoulders.  You will have no more worries.  Now, if anyone asks you what you did today, you may reply with a clear conscience, "Everything I set out to accomplish, I did".  And that's the truth.  Any unaccomplishments are on my shoulders.  Rest easy.  You're home free and with a clear conscience..............marge

Open Carry arms, small 'manhood'

I finally figured it out.  Men who need to open carry sidearms, rifles and semi automatic weapons around in public are feeling terribly inadequate.  Its that simple.  What they don't have inside their pants, they'll make do with visible weapons outside.  No more need be said.  That's it folks!.......................marge

Michigan Sex Offender Registry

On 2-14-10 I wrote a long article about Michigan's Sex Offender Registry and how bad it is.  I had hopes that our Legislators (A nice word for politicians) would do something about that law to improve it and put some fairness into it.  Hope didn't do it.  I haven't heard of one legislator who has made any attempt to make any corrections.  The 'Why not' is easy to figure out.  Not only are they afraid of not keeping their constituents but of not gaining any new ones.  Forget about righting any wrongs, that's apparently the last thought on their minds.  It all about staying in their elected offices.  Fighting for a minority is precluded by that.  Too bad some of them can't step up and be counted.  Let's not hold our breaths......................marge

inexcusable death

An innocent child was handed a UZI, just to play with, for the fun of it.  She was just average size and surrounded by adults, adults who after years of growing up, didn't.  Because of their ignorance, she now carries a label of 'killer'.  On purpose?  Of course not.  This tragedy is beyond comprehension.  Had the instructor not worked with children?  So it would appear.  He knew the capability of the weapon, but not the incapability of the child.  And the parents?  What was their motive?  A bunch of silly pictures to take home from their vacation showing off what, a little girl with an over sized rapid firing gun?  Isn't that something about which to brag.  Those, hopefully, never taken pictures, may not be on film, but they'll be in their minds til the day they die..........................marge


Yesterday I got a call  "Your grandson has been in an accident and we need $2000 to keep him out of jail".  They talk fast and descriptively.  Your mind is spinning, upon which they count.  Have your cell phone handy!  Make a quick call to the grandson!  Mine was sleeping.  He was fine.  Phew!  We Seniors may not be the sharpest tack in the box (sorry) but we haven't totally lost it!.................marge

You pathetic curly haired people.

You have body, waves and beautiful ringlets.  Oh the suffering of it.  I don't know about frizzy hair.  I don't have that either.  I have, and not everyone believes it, totally straight hair.  Hair like  the finger in the socket hair.  Hopelessly unimproveable or styleable.  (never mind my spelling).  Their is nothing, absolutely nothing to be done to 'straight' hair to make it attractive.  I know.  You've seen straight haired people whose hair looks fantastic.  Little do you know.  Our bathroom shelves are lined with gels, lacquer, foams and finishing sprays.  They are used individually and together, our heads secretly a semi-matted mess.  No handsome man running his fingers through our hair, at least after the first try.  So no more saying to us, 'oh pooh, you exaggerate'.  We don't and that's the gospel truth.  Thanks heavens for my gorgeous looks.........................marge

Deaths of our young people.

I don't pretend to understand what it means to be of First Nation or African American backgrounds.  I doubt many of us do and for that I'm sorry.  I am however, appalled at what appears to be many people who jump into the fracas, not for justice, but for the need to prove their own self importance, self esteem and perhaps get their own needed 15 minutes of fame.  A poor comparison is people who go to sporting events and try to sit in line of the TV cameras.  They're not their for the games as witnessed by their inattention and their always glancing at the camera or their hand held electronics.  How pathetically sad.  How do we help those individuals?  They've become part of the problem, not one of the solutions.....................marge
