Several recent events in the media made it crystal clear to me that, although we may coexist in the world together, Wiccans and Muslims do not serve the same God as I do. To wit, a group of witches in Iowa conducted a variety of pagan rituals to put a hex on the Stanford rapist, Brock Turner, his father, Dan Turner, and the presiding judge, … Continue reading Your God Is Not My God
Amber Rose, what exactly are you saying in this outfit? I’m too cool to care that I look like a comic book character? Or I’m so sexy I can shave my head and wear this God-awful outfit for the paparazzi to snap my pic? This is what you wear while out to lunch? Don’t they have children in California? I am so over these fame-seeking … Continue reading A Beast in the Streets
Maybe it was all just hormones but I found myself weeping over the news of the death of Bretagne, the last remaining canine who was used to search the 9/11 site for survivors. Maybe it just touched me how loyal and faithful a dog can be. Perhaps it was the picture of those firefighters in uniform saluting her as she made her last walk before … Continue reading Good-Bye, Bretagne
You would have thought showing a little gray hair was a crime the way Demi Moore was chided by the Daily Mail today for not having her hair freshly dyed the same dark brunette we have become accustomed to seeing. The reporter made a word play of Demi’s 1990 movie, “Ghost,” by saying she must have “seen a ghost.” For crying out loud the movie … Continue reading Gray Shaming
It made my blood boil when I read in the Daily Mail of two teenage girls who beat up a 78-year-old elderly woman when she got off a New York subway train after asking one of the girls to move her feet so she could sit down. Reportedly the two girls followed the woman when she got off the train in a neighborhood in Brooklyn … Continue reading WTF!!
I was basking in the sunshine of a beautiful day when it suddenly dawned on me that I was a cliché. My smile ran away from my face and instantly the day felt cloudy. I was a lonely divorced middle-aged woman with a gut. This is the irony of being middle-aged that no one ever shared with me. You may go into a room and … Continue reading What’s Your Superpower?
I often fantasize about living off the grid, as do countless of other stressed out Americans. Ah, I imagine, the sweet freedom from the tyranny of the clock and the cubicle. Turns out, this may be a fantasy after all. A recent article in the Washington Post examined national health and mortality statistics and found that the death rate of rural white American women in … Continue reading Poor and White in America
The prevalence of the occult in our culture is undeniable, which begs the question, what exactly is attracting people to vampirism, Wicca, and pagan worship? The Greatest Generation is almost entirely gone and the mystical has quickly stepped up to fill the vacuum of a society based on relativity, humanism, and science. The result is a three-generation deep society that knows nothing of God or … Continue reading The New Darling: Paganism
Is it wrong to say I can relate with this sister? I am not saying it is right. I am not saying I would do it. But I can relate. CBS Los Angeles reported an incident captured on a cell phone video camera of a woman hitting a man’s car with a bat at a gas station. Purportedly in the video of the incident, the … Continue reading Snapped: Woman Takes Bat to Man’s Truck
On May 16, 2016 Guinness World Records confirmed that Italian Emma Morano was indeed the oldest confirmed person alive at age 116. And all you single ladies can take small comfort in the fact that she attributes her long life, in part, to being single (and eating raw eggs and raw meat). Morano only just inherited the title of oldest living person following the recent … Continue reading All the Single Ladies
