Just a Note

I am still alive, but I just have not been up to writing. I did get through my surgeries ok, but 2018 was simply a miserable year filled with trauma and drama that I don’t want to talk about, and 2019 thus far has just been a long stupid never ending winter which has left me in a funk.

Rumor has it that spring may eventually arrive, so I’ve got that going for me, and I still have this website so maybe I’ll start using it again.

Thank you to everyone who has offered me thoughts and prayers, and thank you to everyone who hasn’t forgotten me.

Prayer Request

Sorry I am not here much anymore, but I have been writing on Fridays at DaTechGuy’s Blog, and you can see my stuff here:


I am posting from my phone right now so please forgive the formatting or lack thereof. I am in bed & not feeling well.

Tomorrow (Wednesday 12/20), I am having major surgery which I hope will make me feel better in the long run – after however long it takes to heal. The surgery is medically necessary so it has to get done regardless.

Please pray for me that the surgery goes ok and that I get to come back home to my family.

Thank you for your friendship & support over the years, I really do love you all! I will try to update when it’s all done.

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah! May God bless you all.

Never Underestimate the Power of Dad

A comment in a Reddit thread:

Uhtred_McUhtredson • 5h

The office of the POTUS is practically a psychological Archetype. He’s like the dad of our country. The wise pop of everyone who holds America in their heart.


Trump is a caring dad and grandfather. Just look at the poise of his kids. Their work ethic and family values. People don’t just come out that way, they learn by watching. Trump is the quintessential father figure. He’s big, he wears a suit, he has a sense of humor, he can hold his own and he makes you feel safe. You don’t even know why, he just does. He’s America’s dad. He keeps us safe at night, gives us the freedom and opportunity to succeed and fail on our own merits and if anyone fucks with us, you know he’s got our backs.

You don’t fuck with America’s dad. We may not even be aware of it consciously, but we feel it on some level. You fuck with my dad, and I won’t forget it. I won’t buy your records, I won’t watch your movies. I will turn off your TV shows and I won’t eat at your bullshit restaurants. You don’t fuck with the American family and expect to get off scott free. We have a long memory and nobody fucks with us.

There’s no such thing as “toxic masculinity” to people who understand the greatness of Dad.

#TrumpDay – I forgot to give this post a title edition

Welcome back to TrumpDay!

Here is a parody song making fun of those stupid brainwashed antifa dumbasses, enjoy!


Here is a video compilation of 18 months of Left Wing Violence – what their enablers don’t want anyone to know about:


RELATED: Name Antifa As Terrorist Organization Petition Passes 200k; New Goal is One Million

There’s a reason why they are called “rent a mob”.

Camping World’s CEO decided that it would be a good idea to announce that they do not want customers who are Trump supporters. DaTechGuy has an idea for how you can easily show Camping World what you think about that.

Over at Polination, Pistol Pete has a nice summary of President Trump’s visit and rally in Arizona last night.

It is time for me to get back to momstuff, so Happy TrumpDay, y’all, MAGA!

Back to Homeschool Season

Miss me? I know I haven’t posted anything here in over a month, but I have been busy with the family and critters this summer and I’m also incredibly bored by all the stupidity I see and hear in the “news” lately.

I write at DaTechGuy’s Blog on Fridays, so please come visit me there and also check out all the other good stuff that is there every single day.

I will still blog here, of course, when time and circumstances allow and when I am inclined to do so. It is always nice to have your own place available to say what you want when you want to!

It is back to school prep season for everyone who sends their kids off to a school somewhere, and, for those of us who homeschool from fall to summer, it is also back to homeschool season (some families homeschool year round, but my family enjoys the summer break). Homeschool families of course must supply all of their own books and materials (while their property taxes still go to support the public schools they are not using) at their own expense.

I can never afford the fancy packaged complete curriculums (which I hear are very good) and I am not clever enough to do it all from scratch and for free the way some moms do, but I found a resource that I like and will share it here for anyone who is interested:

Amy Maryon is a homeschooling mom of ten(!) kids who has graciously made lessons available for anyone who wants them at her website Plain and not so plain, in addition to blogging about all kinds of other interesting and useful things. She has FREE pdf downloads covering entire grades worth of curriculum for Math and English, and other courses as well, and for people who would prefer to have physical books (it can get pricey to print hundreds of pages at home and sometimes it is just easier to just have a book), Amy put many of the courses from her website into book form that is very reasonably priced at Amazon.

Whether you are sending the kids off to a school or keeping them at home to educate them this year, Amazon has back to school deals in abundance. Anything you buy from my Amazon links sends a small commission my way, which will help me and my kids out, and it won’t cost you a penny extra!

I hope you all have been having a fabulous summer and that you enjoy the remainder of it. Summer has always been my favorite season, it is too bad that it goes by so fast!

Seven Seventeen Seventeen

July 17, 2017 – 7-17-17 – Lots of sevens there, should be a lucky day for folks who dig that sort of thing.

Also on July 17th are:

Get Out of the Doghouse Day – it’s all about forgiveness, which is something we all need to be giving and getting from time to time. Via the official Get Out of the Doghouse Day website:

How To Celebrate Get Out of the Dog House Day
Have you sent someone to the doghouse recently? This day would be a nice time to forgive them of their wrongdoing and give them a chance. Talk to them and let them know that you still value them.
Has a spouse or friend or family member sent you there? Well today is the perfect time to reconnect with them and detach from technology. Take them out for coffee, make them a card, or pick them some flowers. Giving others a little bit of your time can show how much you care and that you do want to make it up to them. Get yourself out of that dog house!
If no one is in the dog house, it would still be a good day to take a friend on a walk, call a sibling, stop by to see your parents. Let them know how much joy they give your life.    MORE

National Tattoo Day – I have a few of those from my misspent young adulthood!

Yellow Pig Day – A Math holiday celebrating the fascinating number 17!

Wrong Way Corrigan Day! – One of my favorite stories of a clever aviator:

Corrigan was among the mechanics who had worked on Lindbergh’s Spirit of St. Louis aircraft, but that mere footnote in the history of flight was not enough for the Texas-born aviator. In 1938, he bought a 1929 Curtiss Robin aircraft off a trash heap, rebuilt it, and modified it for long-distance flight. In July 1938, Corrigan piloted the single-engine plane nonstop from California to New York. Although the transcontinental flight was far from unprecedented, Corrigan received national attention simply because the press was amazed that his rattletrap aircraft had survived the journey.

Almost immediately after arriving in New York, he filed plans for a transatlantic flight, but aviation authorities deemed it a suicide flight, and he was promptly denied. Instead, they would allow Corrigan to fly back to the West Coast, and on July 17 he took off from Floyd Bennett field, ostentatiously pointed west. However, a few minutes later, he made a 180-degree turn and vanished into a cloudbank to the puzzlement of a few onlookers.

Twenty-eight hours later, Corrigan landed his plane in Dublin, Ireland, stepped out of his plane, and exclaimed, “Just got in from New York. Where am I?” He claimed that he lost his direction in the clouds and that his compass had malfunctioned. The authorities didn’t buy the story and suspended his license, but Corrigan stuck to it to the amusement of the public on both sides of the Atlantic. By the time “Wrong Way” Corrigan and his crated plane returned to New York by ship, his license suspension had been lifted, he was a national celebrity, and a mob of autograph seekers met him on the gangway.

World Emoji Day – 🙂  Emojis are fun, so celebrate!  😉

David Hasselhoff‘s Birthday is July 17. Don’t Hassle the Hoff! I enjoyed him in Knight Rider and the Sharknado movies. BTW, Sharknado 5 is coming soon!

Phyllis Diller was born on July 17, 1917. She was funny.

John Jacob Astor was born on July 17, 1763. He founded an American empire.

July 17 is also my birthday. Yay, me. 


Sorry I have not been around much lately, I know I have missed my last two TrumpDays, but be assured that I still dearly love My President and support him completely. I have just been busy with the family at home, and, I also recently had a little mishap that left me with a part of my poor face getting put back together with surgical glue and butterfly stitches and I am getting cranky while waiting for it to heal. In other news, I go back to the dentist on Wednesday to finish up work on that tooth that went bad. I’ll be glad when that is over! Even when I am not blogging here, you can still find me on Fridays at my friend Peter’s place, Da Tech Guy Blog. My most recent post is here.

I hope you have a wonderful Monday. I still really do love you all.

#TrumpDay – Referendum Schmeferendum Edition

Huzzah! It’s TrumpDay again!

There was a special election in Georgia for Newt Gingrich’s old Congressional seat and it was supposed to be a “referendum” on the Presidency of My Donald where the leftist “Trump Slayer” carpetbagger propped up by Hollyweird would win as the media predicted he would and it would show everyone that President Trump can’t MAGA, but it didn’t quite work out that way. LOL

FoxNews morning crew with some analysis:


Democrats also lost in South Carolina last night.

Survey says: The kids are all right.

In case you missed it when it blew up in the dextrosphere last month, here is Chris Ray Gun with “Ain’t No Rest for the Triggered” (cuz it’s awesome):

This is sure to trigger some snowflakes – multiple Pepes doing the Peanuts Dance:

Until next time… Happy TrumpDay, y’all, MAGA!
