He probably ate it by the third inning.
Given my college experience, I don’t know how I could possibly do it again. I had five part-time jobs, 30 credit hour semesters, and I lived on a coed floor in a women’s dormitory. I attribute most of that to determined ambition and the vitality of youth. Life has drained most of that out of me by now.
Now, if Earl had learned to bake and cook for himself, he wouldn’t need to ask Opal for the favor. …He should still tell her she’s beautiful, though.
The NRA stopped advocating for gun safety and regulation, and the interests of hunters, collectors, and sports shooters in 1976, when they changed their agenda and became the lobbyist organization for gun manufacturers and the profits they enjoy from fear mongering and resistance to common sense gun laws. They quite literally profit from the death of the many school students and innocents lost in mass shootings, which from my perspective makes them a genuine terrorist organization.
Most LED bulbs these days come in two color ranges – warm white (kind of a yellow tint white light like that of incandescent bulbs) and cool white (that has a slight blue tint to resemble natural daylight). Most people prefer the warm white because they say the cool white is too bright and harsh, but it does give you an honest view of what you’re seeing as far as the color of things are concerned. If the brightness is a concern to you, try a five watt (60 watt equivalent) or even a 3 watt (forty watt equivalent) LED bulb. You can also buy specialty LED bulbs that can be programmed (remote control) to give off a variety of colors. I import my cool white and warm white LED bulbs directly from China for around $1.60 a piece, including the shipping.
For 30 years I used 130VAC incandescent light bulbs, and in all those years I only replaced 2 bulbs. The 120VAC name brand bulbs tend to burn out very quickly, so I stopped wasting my money with them. I have been upgrading my lights to LEDs, but because it’s a relatively new technology, the regulators in those bulbs are flaky and they don’t last nearly as long as they should. I am now importing fairly inexpensive LED bulbs with much better heat removal and current regulation, and they last a whole lot longer. A 5 watt LED bulb now puts out as much light as the old 60 watt incandescent bulbs did. I’m definitely seeing a reduction in my electric bill. Ahhh, technology.
It’s sad that most schools segregate those “puberty lessons” into exclusively female and male groups. Both boys and girls should be together in all those lessons. American sexual hangups keep the sexes ignorant of the other gender until they grow up and then they are supposed to get married and live happily ever after. It would seem logical that if girls knew what was going on with boys and vice versa while growing up, there might be a little more understanding and sensitivity between the sexes to temper all the inappropriate behavior and abuse we’re hearing about today.
The word is NOT “drifting” Emmy Lou. The word is most definitely “drifted.”
“I get the impression that Benson’s idea of a socialist is anybody who’s even a centimeter to the left of Ronald Reagan.” You must be referring to the MYTHICAL, idealized Ronald Reagan, because the REAL Reagan was too liberal for today’s radicalized GOP. Reagan raised taxes 11 times while in office, and gave undocumented immigrants immunity, and negotiated (heck, he collaborated) with terrorists (drugs for arms), to say NOTHING of the real, indisputable treason he committed in sabotaging the negotiations around the Iranian hostage crisis in order to get elected.
“as long as there is human greed, envy, and laziness socialism will never work.” The very same thing can be said of capitalism and pretty much every other “ism” out there. Some people are just too politically blinded and willfully ignorant to see that extremely visible fact in an out of control capitalist America today.
