I've seen this meme several times and it bugs me. I don't know what video is being referenced, but this doesn't seem like a fair standard by which to judge whether someone is racist. Reading requires different parts of the brain than watching videos. Watching videos is a passive action and reading is more active, and not everyone has the patience to get through a whole book. Not everyone likes to read, and even those that do don't like to read political or non-fiction books. And typically watching a video is less of a time investment than reading a book. Unless it's a really long video and a really short book.

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

Candied pecans and Pumpkin Flan are done! House smells divine.

Just read @bridgetphetasy ‘s column for the December issue of Spectator. Bridget, when are you going to collect your essays, columns, stories, and other writings into a book? I would buy a copy and possibly several additional copies to send to my more “woke” friends.
