My newsfeed is high af today. I have three stories about Barack Obama in my “Recommended” feed. Why? Why is Barry recommended for me?

What the fuck is going on here?

He’s not trending, is he? He couldn’t be, not after all these years.

He’s been out of office for…

I was born under a bloody wolf moon, in the dead of winter, in the year of the dragon. To say I was born under dominate stars is an understatement.

Tala means Stalking Wolf. It is my given name, but it was not given to me by my mother until…

I’m so over my Medium newsfeed. I counted seven out of the first ten articles this morning in my “Recommended For You” feed telling me what I should think about Medium. And then, five more after I refreshed.

My husband is the (ex)Terminator of all the creepy-crawlies on our property. That includes all flora and fauna with intention of returning our manicured lawn to the Paleozoic Era.

All unwanted lifeforms die at the hand of Omega here in our little corner of the world.

“You … women don’t belong here. If you knew what was good for you, you’d go home, where you belong.”

Clyde’s garage was off Cincinnati-Dayton Road in Bethany. I live in Blue Ash, so I traveled north to get to Clyde’s shop. I never mind the twenty minute drive. I cranked the blue tooth and listened to Zeppelin II. Music is life.

Friends come in all shapes, sizes, colors, ages, genders, and species, and if only we open our minds and hearts, we can find them everywhere.

A friend asked me the other day if I’d like to be 25 again. I laughed. Um, hell no, I don’t want to be 25 again, you couldn’t pay me enough money in the world.
