Blegh!

Blegh
Well, I’ve been sick the last few days. The first part of the week was focusing on the ACA data review and just when I was close to printing out forms, I came down sick. So this week I didn’t get any artwork done but I did do some self-education on Excel/statistics from a book. This post’s picture pretty much illustrates the lack of desire to do much of anything. My motivation is just blegh rig...

Is This For Real?

Is This For Real?
On Wednesday, during lunch break, an article, “Donald Trump didn’t want to be president”, caught my eye and pulled me into the article. It turned out to be excerpts from a tell-all book Fire and Fury by Michael Wolffe, and boy, was it a doozy. I couldn’t believe what I was reading, so, as a reminder to do research on the points in the article, I emailed to myself: “Is this for real?” I really ...

Reading: Would Like to Read as Much as Warren Buffett

Reading - I'm still reading

Doug Jones succeeded because the blacks came out in force and I would like to thank them for that. They really needed to in order to save themselves. I would also like to thank some of...

It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad World

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World
I used to think that religious Americans try to do what is right, even though we are all humans and do things we shouldn't. Granted, some of the worst wars stem from religion but it also provided guidance on living morally and on treating others with respect and tolerance - at least some religion did. But now, after the evangelicals supported and voted in Trump, and after the latest news statin...

Flat Earth – Are You Serious?

Flat Earthers
When I would read stuff like "25% of Americans believe the sun revolves around the earth" or "some Americans believe the earth is flat" or "some fundamentalists believe the earth is 6000 years old", I used to think that America always had people who believed in "outdated" facts, to put it kindly, and that we just know about these people today because of the 24/7 news effect and/or the internet....
