Okay!  I admit it! I haven’t written anything for NWR in…in

Dear God! 

SIX MONTHS?

Where did the thyme go?

Ah, the spice of life; hair today, gone tomorrow. If you don’t believe it, you haven’t seen what’s left on my head.

Over-dramatic representation

What’s new in the news world? 

Not much. 

Same old stories about rape gangs in Europe, civil war in Africa, famine, garbage islands the size of Australia in the Pacific, radioactive tuna, people of all races/colors/creeds fighting over wrongs that happened centuries ago while human trafficking happens right in front of them.

In other words, we never learn a D@%&#d thing.

Hmm…what do I want for breakfast?

That has to wait until I feed the cats, or they’ll be trying to steal my turkey ham and eggs.

Hey…something interesting on social media.  Poor woman!

I know, I know, what’s wrong with me, us, the world?  I actually found the non-medical term for it:

Yes, we are suffering from a bad case of OCD:

Other Countries Deficits

….and ADD

Any Distraction (will do) Disorder.

One day, I’ll donate the 20 blankets I don’t use to charity.  One day, I’ll go through my fridge and find the remains of that apricot cobbler I couldn’t finish.  Someday I’ll give $10 a month to help fight female genital mutilation…

Oh, look!  I don’t have to be concerned about 3rd world problems any longer!

I’m sooooo relieved!

A drone took this picture only a stone’s throw from where I live. See the outhouse? Note: St. John’s Bridge in the distance.

We live in a glorious modern world. A technological world filled with all kinds of machines flying through the air that can kill and/or deprive you of your right to privacy. Want to know more? I’ll be happy to drone on about it.

If only there was some way to combine the spine-tingling creepiness of drones with America’s #1 pastime. I’m talking about, of course, shopping.

Shopping Fever
Fact: On average, Americans shop six hours a week and spend only 40 minutes playing with their children.

Yeah, that sounds like a great way to run a railroad. What could possibly go wrong? It’s not like we could all turn out to be a bunch of assholes, right? I’m sure Dr. Spock would be proud of what we as a society have accomplished.

Now who would be interested in combining drone technology with the compulsion to buy consumption thingies? Amazon.com?! And, bonus, what a great place for Dr. Spock’s heirs to sell his books!
