The Rona Relief Bill needs to happen right now!

COVID-19, or Rona as I’m now calling her, is exposing people’s true nature. Some people are rising to the occasion and showing a good side of themselves that most people never see. Others’ true nature is sadly surfacing and exposing their selfish or even evil sides. I have read wonderful stories from around the globeContinue reading “The Rona Relief Bill needs to happen right now!”

DOT officers need to step up and do their part in flattening the curve.

If DOT doesn’t wake up and stop backing up trucks at weigh stations etc. for hours, then doing truck inspections requiring lengthy paperwork exchanges, every truck driver in America as well as every police officer and DOT officer is going to be infected, IContinue reading “DOT officers need to step up and do their part in flattening the curve.”

SNAP (Food stamp) payments in the US need changed during the lockdowns and social distancing required during the COVID-19 pandemic.

SNAP, formerly called food stamps, is paid once a month in the US. Most families and elderly people genuinely needing and depending on this monthly payment to purchase food, shop differently than other people. Typically, they take their SNAP money as soon as it is received and use it to purchase needed staples to getContinue reading “SNAP (Food stamp) payments in the US need changed during the lockdowns and social distancing required during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Thank you Homeland Security for finally acknowledging agriculture as a critical industry.

Up until this declaration, there was nothing preventing ag loads of feed to dairy, poultry, or any other life stock farms from being shutdown. There was nothing preventing crops from not being able to be harvested and new crops planted. I am glad someoneContinue reading “Thank you Homeland Security for finally acknowledging agriculture as a critical industry.”

Wake up America before it’s too late. Slowing the progression of COVID-19 is vital. Facebook has got to get a handle on the memes being shared right now.

I don’t even know where to begin with this post. I cannot even get onto my personal FB page without my head exploding. My personal FB page is closed to the general public becuase I share personal pictures of my son and myself that do not need to be floating around the world. I doContinue reading “Wake up America before it’s too late. Slowing the progression of COVID-19 is vital. Facebook has got to get a handle on the memes being shared right now.”

Easter Sunday, Turkey and Dressing, Family, Quarantine Food Prep

Easter Sunday is observed April 12th in the US this year. My family loves turkey and we have traditionally had turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy and all the trimmings on Easter Sunday. In the US, people fix turkey on Thanksgiving as well as Christmas in many households. Turkey is wonderful during cold and fluContinue reading “Easter Sunday, Turkey and Dressing, Family, Quarantine Food Prep”

COVID-19. America has lost it’s collective mind. Here in tornado alley, the reaction is the same to tornado season being upon us and a new virus approaching.

I live in the middle of tornado alley. If you don’t know what tornado alley is, it’s an area where tornados occur each year in large numbers. We are entering tornado season. The people where I live are reacting to COVID-19 the same way in which they react to tornados. Some people are on theContinue reading “COVID-19. America has lost it’s collective mind.

Beautiful Sunrise on my way to school and work!

Yes, I took these as I was driving down the highway with my cellphone. They are unedited and do not show the true beauty of the sun and sky this morning, but you get the idea. We got rain a couple of days ago that put out any remaining grass fires and will let theContinue reading “Beautiful Sunrise on my way to school and work!”

School closings, kids, work, and the COVID-19 virus.

This morning I was reading online news stories and of course catching up on social media. There have been grass fires in the area in which I live. I can smell smoke when I go outside. High wind (20-30mph with 40mph gusts), pastures not green yet, and it’s really dry. All normal for this timeContinue reading “School closings, kids, work, and the COVID-19 virus.”

Daylight Savings Time. I hate time changes.

I woke up this morning at 9:30 to the sound of my phone ringing. Yesterday at this exact time it would have been 8:30. Why are we still insisting on this ridiculous tradition of changing the time twice a year? The only purpose the time change serves is to make most of us tired forContinue reading “Daylight Savings Time. I hate time changes.”
