That's what it says on a white SMART car''s license that zips around town: BITESZ. First time I saw it, it made me chortle with glee. Now, it just makes me smile.
Found a new blog to read and subscribed; it's smart and thoughtful. Got an email back asking if I was real. He got the wiseacre reply. A gal's gotta go for the laughs now and then.
I've been in a generally happy mood lately. Yah, I know everything is going to hell in a hand basket around us lately and I sure don't have any control over that. But I got two little old ladies with dementia who I get to take care of during the week who I like. The pay is tolerable and because of it, I've managed to pay down a few debts to where they're almost 'bite sized' and I'm not so direly stressed from worry. I did ask the gods for this -- just plain, simple honest work that gives their families a bit of respite time so they can recharge and take care of their own needs. Service work. Nothing fancy. But a whole lot more real than some of the %($!# ya see goin' on out in the business/media/politics dominated workaday world these days.
I went to another Coffee Party meeting Saturday. Interesting group. There must be some vestige of optimism in me that maybe we Americans of myriad stripes can actually have a civil conversation and maybe even work toward common goals even if we don't always totally agree on everything. This country could stand people wanting to get some win-win action going for it. The old system isn't working so good. I was so right to worry about times like these the way I did back during the first Reagan term.
Getting out of Dodge Thursday with hubby and the dog to go camping in the Jemez with friends. Maybe we'll do a small, slightly belated Solstice celebration as well. That'll rock! I have only been going to the Jemez since I was a tender 16 months old... so for about 54 of my 55 years.

This concerns us all and is a major wake up call! Our legislators need to make sure there is a foolproof, no loopholes law DENYING corporations 'personhood' in this country!
