Astrology - Truth or Nonsense?
It's hard for me to believe that the date and time of a person's birth can really foretell their personality, so while I enjoy reading a good astrology prediction, I usually don't put much faith in it. Facebook Birthdays However, if you've friended a bunch ...

For the Finer Gauge Folks. I have always loved working with fine yarns...both in gauge and in fiber content, so I just ordered my copy of Carol's latest book. Her work is always wonderfully inspiring , so I'm looking forward to seeing what she's done with lace-weight yarns.

Post-Birthday Festivities

While my birthday was 11 days ago, I had a couple of very nice gifts after that. Happy Birthday To Me! First of all, instead of a birthday cake on my birthday (since we had cake for dessert in the restaurant on my birthday), Thaddeus made me birthday PIE the day after.

Crowd Sourcing - Good? Bad? Ugly?
Crowd sourcing, or the ability to raise money for some specific purpose seems to have turned into the new democratic way of voting on things. Good, Bad and Ugly When Indiana tried highlighting their citizen's right to discriminate against the LGBT community...
Good, Bad and Ugly. When Indiana tried highlighting their citizen's right to discriminate against the LGBT community by expanding existing Religious Freedom Restoration Acts (RFRA) to specifically let all for-profit businesses discriminate, it spawned a new gimmick.

Setting Things Straight In Indiana
Time for QueerJoe to put some things straight...so to speak when it comes to bigotry in Indiana. Thank You Governor Pence Indiana Governor Mike Pence has done more to bring light to the issue of LGBT protections than any gay rights organization could have. ...
Thank You Governor Pence. Indiana Governor Mike Pence has done more to bring light to the issue of LGBT protections than any gay rights organization could have. Then again, he did get a lot of "support" from the LGBT community and their allies. First of all...you know it was COMPLETELY legal to ...

Always The Right Season
When it comes to knitting, and knit-related gifts, it is never NOT the season for them. Other Interests I know some folks that switch from fiber-related pursuits in the Winter, to gardening in the Spring and Summer. While I used to love having a vegetable g...
Other Interests. I know some folks that switch from fiber-related pursuits in the Winter, to gardening in the Spring and Summer. While I used to love having a vegetable garden, I never really found flower gardening or landscaping appealing at all. I also now live in a townhouse with a very small ...

Happy Earth Day 2015
So...what are you planning on doing for Earth Day this year?\ Do You Celebrate? Focusing one day a year on trying to repair the devastation we've done to this planet just doesn't seem sufficient. The fact that we've pretty much ignored climate change and ma...
Do You Celebrate? Focusing one day a year on trying to repair the devastation we've done to this planet just doesn't seem sufficient. The fact that we've pretty much ignored climate change and making any efforts to make changes that will affect the lives of our youth saddens me more than I can ...

We All Know CPR, Right?
I used to train every year in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, or CPR when I was an employee in an office setting.  It's been years, since I had any training, and I noticed things have changed since then. Selfish Reasons For two very selfish reasons, I want a...
I used to train every year in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, or CPR when I was an employee in an office setting. It's been years, since I had any training, and I noticed things have changed since then. Selfish Reasons. For two very selfish reasons, I want as many people to know CPR and basic ...

Places of Serenity
Are there places for you, where you just feel at peace whenever you're there? Aries With Pisces Rising My birth date would indicate that I'm an Aries, which is a fire sign, but I have always found peace and serenity near water.  I love rivers, streams, ocea...
Aries With Pisces Rising. My birth date would indicate that I'm an Aries, which is a fire sign, but I have always found peace and serenity near water. I love rivers, streams, oceans, beaches, puddles, baths...even rain storms I find soothing. My moon sign is Pisces, which is a water sign, ...

Not a Fan of Being Fooled
I never really understood why April Fool's day was such popular thing. Just Seems Mean I rarely see an April 1st joke that isn't at least a little mean...where the "fool" is the butt of some cruel or semi-cruel joke. Having grown up in a large family, we we...
Just Seems Mean. I rarely see an April 1st joke that isn't at least a little mean...where the "fool" is the butt of some cruel or semi-cruel joke. Having grown up in a large family, we were always trying to "get one over" on each other, but I know I don't like being made a fool and I honestly ...

Who Cares If Someone Believes in Evolution or Not?
A few days ago on Facebook, WonderMike recommended Richard Dawkins' book, The Greatest Show on Earth , to help argue that evolution is valid. Let Them Wallow I've not read this book, but if Michael says it's good, I'd imagine it's a good book to read.  But ...
Let Them Wallow. I've not read this book, but if Michael says it's good, I'd imagine it's a good book to read. But honestly, I say let the ignorant wallow in their ignorance. In their heart of hearts, they know they're wrong about evolution and they're just parroting back the words of their ...
