    Probably going to add a part time job to the mix too.

    •  better because of some decisions (8+ / 0-)

      I've made recently. I avoid the outer blog and keep my sanity being a big one. The other one is that I will no longer stay silent when people around me say offensive things. At the recent candidate forum I told an old fart that he was "just a racist old bigot" and the gape mouthed look he gave me was absolutely priceless. I don't think anyone has ever stood up to him before, he had no response because he's always gotten away with his bigotry. Since I am retired it's not like it's going to hurt my business to be outspoken. I've had enough, it's time to call this out openly and let people try to defend the indefensible.

      •  i find as i get older, the more bold i become. (6+ / 0-)

        (kinda like kathy bates in 'fried green tomatoes'-face it girls, i'm older and have better insurance.')

        i am so effing tired of this 'post-racial racism'. i got chosen for the nielsen ratings (second time in 25 years) and i was showing my mom the brochure. she raged about it being bi-lingual...i've seen that gape-mouth look from her and my dad since forever; every time i've called them on it, they've denied it. any reason they have disappears.

        oh, and you should have seen the look on her face the other day when i mentioned that i wanted my son to come to the convention to see wendy speak, and shake the hand of our next governor...not. pleased.

        yay, words, for speaking up. can't wait to see you in person and hug you for that : )

        let me take you down, 'cause i'm going to strawberry fields. nothing is real, and nothing to get hung about.-jpgr

      •  that's good, Words (3+ / 0-)

        I generally have to bite my tongue at work a lot of the time, but no one is unclear about what my positions are.

        I usually avoid commenting in the outer blog, but I've pretty much always been that way. And I can just go down the diary list and tell which ones are potential pie throw events and scroll on past.
