Even in his mega-star years there was one thing Bill Cosby never had to worry about.  He need never have feared he’d awaken, open his bedroom door and be overrun by a stampede of women eager to push him back onto the bed.   If true, all the dirt that has surfaced about him -- sometimes resurfaced --  makes you wonder what goes on in his head.   But a mega star he was.  Rich, famous and beloved.  Now, it turns out, rich, famous, beloved family man, Cliff Huxtable -- Dr. Huxtable -- was prescribing and dosing patients with more than “two aspirins and call me in the morning.”   Nothing like a couple of roofies to knock a doc off the pedestal.  If he actually did it.   If it was one woman one time and the case was settled and everyone is keeping silent, it Read more

Mayo is a Four Letter Word

Leave it to giant Unilever.   The Goliath- size food conglomerate is on the attack.  The David in this story is a company in San Francisco called Hampton Creek, which makes a vegan spread called “Just Mayo.”   Vegan means no animal anything.   Lever says ahah! False advertising!  Regulations say Mayonnaise must contain egg yolks.  Egg yolks are made by CHICKENS!   Hampton Creek founder Josh Tetrick says that’s why they don’t call their stuff mayonnaise, just “Just Mayo.”  Everyone knows what that means.  In fact, one major manufacturer, Kraft, calls its actual egg-containing mayonnaise “mayo” on the label.   Probably, Tetrick will be forced to call his sandwich spread something else.  And that is hitting him the wrong way.   Butter substitutes Read more

The Road Trip

What's up with Florida? What's up with Charleston, South Carolina? What's up with Hilton Head, South Carolina? Recently we visited all three places on our Fall 2014 road trip. Why not?... was the reason. My husband had never been to South Carolina and wasn't anxious to go, thanks to Joe "You Lie" Wilson and Lindsey Wam Bam Graham. His reason was not to give any money to a state that refused help from Washington when it needed the money as much or more than most other states. "Who cares" was my attitude because we can find something wrong with any place you name. He kept talking about how the islands off the coast of South Carolina were stolen from African Americans generations ago. I kept responding with how African American and Native American property was stolen in every other state Read more

It’s That Time of Year

What do we do when we're locked out of the house? We walk around to the back and try that door. We check the windows to see if any are unlocked before we go to whatever the other options are, like calling another family member to come home or contacting the locksmith. In other words, if one option fails, we try other ways and maybe something will work. It's the year of midterm elections and have you ever thought of how that same game plays into any election year?...being locked out of the house and looking for another way to get in. In this case, it’s not about the poor and minority voters and non voters. It’s about the people who CLAIM this country needs government issued photo IDs to stop poor and minority voters from committing voter fraud. First of all, when have poor and minority Read more
