Grace and Frankie

I have recently done some binge watching of tv series on Netflix.

Watched the first 3 seasons of Longmire again so I could be refreshed and then watched season 4. Great show. Can't wait for season 5. Lou Diamond Phillips just gets sexier with aging.

My brother was visiting from California and he recommended Grace and Frankie, a Netflix original. I watched season 1 and 2 and was sad that I will have to wait for season 3. If you don't know it, here is the trailer for season 1:



While I am waiting for more of Tomlin / Fonda, I am watching Black Books - a British comedy that takes place in a bookstore and is very funny, so far.

Also watching Death In Paradise. I save those to watch with my mom, though.They are murder mysteries on a Carribean Island. Very good and the music is fabulous.

What y'all doing this summer?

IMHO the right to bear arms...

I have immense respect for the people who formed our government. And I understand why they insisted on the right to bear arms.

HOWEVER

When they were forming our government,  guns that could kill 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 people at a time without reloading - DID NOT EXIST.

We can still have the right to bear arms and not have the right to AK47's.

We can amend the right to bear arms so that only citizens who will use them responsibly are allowed to have them.

Gun control laws and the right to bear arms are not mutually exclusive. We can, and should, have both.

Read it when you want to feel gggoooodddd!

Rebel to the end

I love the saying in this video*:


"IN A SOCIETY THAT PROFITS FROM YOUR SELF-DOUBT, LIKING YOURSELF IS AN ACT OF REBELLION."

*this is not a new video and I may have shared it before

I am a rebel in this way - most of the time.

There are other ways in which I am a rebel. For example - I don't like to garden or even grow flowers. I said it. So there.

I like vegetables and herbs and fruits and flowers. But I selfishly prefer to pay for the efforts of someone else.

Fortunately in my little space in the world it's time for farmers markets. Those are some of my favorite places to go.

Right now I'm off to another place I like to go. During the summer months the local news station sponsors the SUPER SHREDDER. It comes around once a month to someplace local and you can take 50 lbs of stuff to shred. Since I can never seem to keep up with my shredding it makes me very happy.

Not exciting, I know - but off I go.

Hope you are having a good day!
