I Generazioni. The Generations…

Many people are “into” genealogy these days, hoping to find a king or queen, a prince, a famous general or a pope….I found out my family has been peasants since at least the 13th century! Hey, now, I’m okay with it. Really, I am. There’s NO dishonor in being a peasant. Unless you become one

As A Corollary to My Colleague…

As a corollary… Much of my immediate family came here “onna da boat” from the “olda country”. My father and one of his sisters were born here. The other sister and his nine brothers were born in Italy. ALL of them, (except Nonno, Grandpop), became citizens of the United States. Even Nonna, (Grandmom), studied and

Bring it.

So the POTUS went to see the Saudis. Whoop. He got snubbed by the king the same as he got snubbed by Comrade Fidel when he was in Cuba the other day on his “World Apology Tour 2016”.  Really.  Sitting in a meeting with other Arab states arranging for more reasons for them all to

I’m NOT Showing You MINE.

And I don’t want to see yours. North Carolina’s new “bathroom law”, (HB-2), goes too far. So stipulated. As opposed to other laws that try to address such matters, (TN & AR, notably), the North Carolina law uses “on their birth certificate” as the criterion for which rest room a person should use.

A Nice, Soft Beach!

I grew up watching documentaries with my Dad on channel thirteen.  It gave me a love for that genre that I still maintain.  So I’m always tickled when either Nflix or AmaPrime bring some good ones into their line ups.  A common thread in the WWII docs are the cuts to either Pathe or Movietone

Hit Snooze Again, Dear…

Brussels, we’re hearing, is a “wake up call”.  San Berdoo was a wake up call.  Paris was a wake up call.  Tunis was a wake up call…I think the illustration stands, now, on it’s own. One of the wonders of modern technology is that we get our news “as it happens”.  We also forget it

Polling Place, aka…

Vomitorium. Ever since The Great Communicator left office, (saints be good to him), I’ve had to vote with a clothespin on my nose. Not to worry, there’s room. A question of a “lesser evil” or “the devil you know / don’t know”. Over and over. The GDP, (I’ve substituted DEAD for OLD), “establishment” is getting

Seventeen “Friends” and More!

 (Author’s note:  Please keep in mind that I wrote this during the hiatus from PQRM.  I found it on one of my old blogs and thought it worthy of publishing here.  You may disagree.  That is your G/d given right.  Oh, yeah, I WAS particularly angry that day.  These things happen….)
