The Confederate Flag – The Push Me Pull You of Culture and Race

Tenured Radical had a post on the 2009 conservative march in Washington. If you follow the link you will see two men holding a flag. I also encourage you to read her full post. When I see the fabric that is called the “Confederate flag” I have very specific emotions. They are visceral. I feel fear inducing recollections based in historical facts and events. No, this is not about bashing white people. ...more
SallyOh I would and will write that there is blood on that flag. I can't afford to make ... more

Should You Delete Your Old Blog Posts?

Should you delete your old blog posts? I've heard arguments for both sides and both make sense. A bunch of articles I found on Google come from the SEO point-of-view on why you might not want to get rid of old content. ...more

The GoPro 3+ Is Calling My Name but I'm Resisting

There is WHAT?!? in Our Bread?

The lunch line at my local Subway store is long. The ads in the window tout the flatbread sandwich specials. I’m pleased that the restaurant has made a move to remove azodicarbonamide from the bread they use for their sandwiches. This chemical additive is banned in United Kingdom, Europe and Australia, though it is commonly found in American products.  It has been linked to causing asthma and other respiratory problems. ...more
