There are now over 2,300 gnomes that now populate the hills and flats of Gnome Mans Land, California (Oakland). Until recently, they had pretty much managed to keep their presence a secret but then word got out in 2013 and there were fears that even Gnomeland Security might get into the…Continue
The air eagerly grasps my face as the sound of my heart accelerates inside my ears. I struggle to breathe in the over-whelming rush as my body feels like it is free-falling along the twists and turns of the oncoming track. A gasp somehow escapes my pressed lips while my…Continue
Cars, smartphones, jewelry, and cash are among the many valuable items most people expect thieves to target. Not many, however, would think to lock up their pregnancy tests or Tide laundry detergent. Yet, these everyday, ordinary household products are among the most commonly stolen goods.…
Yesterday the Easter Bunny was apprehended by the border patrol in Ogdensburg NY. The furry rascal was attempting to bring over 10,000 Kinder Eggs in anticipation of Easter morning. The US has had a ban on candies with embedded toys since 1938, and although they are illegal it does not stop citizens…
At the age of 62, I no longer have interest in listening to a male voice tell me what I can or cannot do. For once in my life, I want a companion that is silent and loving, so I have chosen my dog to share my remaining years.
My dog eats what I give him and does not demand that I shop for probiotics or buy him organic items. If I choose not to take a bath one day; my best friend will not care, and actually prefers the smell of freshly cooked meat over the scent of…Continue
For one day only regular minions who were not chosen to be Google Glass Explorers during the first round of beta testing, can get…Continue
Talk about a nosedive!
Looks like this might be the corporate fail of the week, maybe even year, or one of the largest airline carriers finally found the alternate ending to Lost.
When I was a child one of my hobbies was to call strangers and ask them if their refrigerator was running. Some knew the answer and told me they were not going to go and catch it, where others were punk'd as they say now. More elaborate jokes grew out of that timeless joke until modern generations either…
Since I'm a female, I generally keep quiet about this subject as women are supposed to be super clean. Of course I practice good hygiene, but I seldom wash my 8 identical pairs of ripped jeans. I began to do this before people like Anderson Cooper and other fashionistas admitted on…Continue
Dr. Seuss's 'Star Bellied Sneeches' analogy continues to play out in the most absurd ways. There is now a disturbing breed of thinspiration that pressures women and girls to pursue a “thigh gap,” which is defined as the space between one's thighs. Online, users are posting aspirational…Continue
I don't know if I have the right to enter this discussion as the hair on my legs has always grown at the speed of one hair per 6 months. But if the…Continue
There is no view where I am living for the next thousand hours. There is just a space in the ceiling that opens to let in the sounds and smells of life. Being alone is no longer difficult, and the older I get the more comfortable I am to live in a state of schizophrenia.
As a child I drowned myself within the pages of books, and as a writer I prefer…Continue
Warning: If anyone thinks this article is going to have something to do with Ray Davies of The Kinks-- better move along.
Once upon a time in 1914, the San Francisco Armory was built with the intention of serving the population of the city. It…Continue
Is cow tipping possible?
Have the gang from Mythbusters proven this yet?
There is detailed research buried in the University of British Columbia archives which suggests that the idea of knocking over a standing cow just doesn't stand up. I had no…Continue
US Homeland Security has been publicly accused of inconsistency after celebrity chef Nigella Lawson was stopped from boarding a British Airways flight to Los Angeles last weekend. Lawson, who acknowledged last year that she had occasionally used cocaine, was denied permission…Continue
Years ago I use to hear about young women going to a rear "back-alley” apartment located in the Voyageur Bus Station in my small town for abortions. I am sure some of the tales were expanded on gossip, some probably had some merit, but the word coat hanger kept popping up in…Continue
