Stop Whining and Do Something

I am frustrated, and I will tell you why. My Facebook and Twitter feeds constantly blow up about this issue or that issue. Tons of people visualize themselves as keyboard warriors who hope to change the world with memes. I’m getting tired of the online whining. We all live in such a privileged society here […]

I decided to write this post because I found so many friends and acquaintances were confused about other people’s opinions on Fidel Castro after his death was reported. Many asked me why some people thought he was a hero or unjustly criticized. Let me give you a brief history of the Cuban Revolution along with […]

Ayotzinapa, the Debates, Colombia, India and Ethiopia – The week in review

I am sipping a nice hot latte while sitting outside listening to the birds sing their evening songs. There is nothing that I love more than to be outdoors enjoying fall weather. My latte is a decaf, since my cutoff for caffeine is about 3PM. It seriously took me decades to figure that nugget of […]

Debates, Corridos, BLM and Brangelina

I like learning the process, the candidates’ positions, and just everything about it. That’s not to say that I love our current system and the way it has evolved into […]

#TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner, Politics and Homeschooling

School politics and grower title 1 parent stuff

Well who knew that elementary schools were so burdened with politics? I almost miss the ignorance I was experiencing pre PTA. Now that I’m involved with the org, I’m learning about the red tape first hand. I also attended title 1 parent meeting, which was enlightening to say the least. The title 1 thing had […]
