Lizzo Blockbuster “Truth Hurts” is Awesome, But There’s a Problem

I love this song, but perhaps I’ve listened to it too much, because…. Problem One: It’s stuck in my head. For days now. Only the first line. And I believe it’s grammatically incorrect. Problem Two: I don’t think I can legally quote the line in my blog without the publishers coming after me. I tried researching this bit, but even if I give full credit … Continue reading Lizzo Blockbuster “Truth Hurts” is Awesome, But There’s a Problem

Let’s Get Perspective on Mama June

Something’s been bothering me about the latest outpouring of concern over Mama June’s situation. I know what it is. Misplaced compassion. (Spoiler alert… this blog is a downer.)

Antiques Roadshow usually grabs my attention, but like someone reluctantly peering under a bandage to look at … Continue reading Supermassive Black Hole in Center of Milky Way!

A Pretend Camping Trip with Anyone I Want? Hmm.

For those of you who read my blog, you won’t be surprised when I say Kelly Reilly, but as her character from the show Yellowstone, Beth Dutton. Let’s see what happens…. Beth Dutton and I travelled alone in the back of the luxury motorhome, a hired driver from the ranch at the wheel.

I’ve Got a Girl Crush

No kidding. I’m obsessed with the actress, Kelly Reilly. George and I recently pounded back the first season of Yellowstone on Amazon and Oh My God, whenever a scene appeared with Kelly Reilly playing the Dutton daughter, I was literally glued to my chair. I’ve never seen the talented woman in anything, but damn, that girl can act. The character’s dialogue is everything. She’s a … Continue reading I’ve Got a Girl Crush
