OK, here’s the thing…

I lost my wallet this week.  I have no photo ID, no social security card, nothing.  No one is going to pull me over and detain me because of this.  I am white, but have no proof that I am here illegally.  Hell, I could be an illegal Canadian, but who cares?  I don’t fit…

No Muslim Ban Protest in DC- Sunday, January 29, 2017

Dean and I took Isabel to two separate protests on Sunday in DC.  The first was in opposition of Betsy DeVos as the nominee as Secretary of Education.  I’ll get back to that.  It was important. The second was the No Muslim Ban protest.  This is a pressing matter, in my opinion, and I feel…

Washington Photo Safari: Sunday, March 27, 2011

I went on a photo safari today.  It was a fundraiser for the Red Cross to benefit victims in Japan after earthquakes and a tsunami devastated  various regions in the country.  Their goal was to make $2,000.  They raised $5,000.  It felt good to help out. We woke up around 6:30 this morning so that…
