DYI Rock Soap Dishes

Ya, ya, I know, Williams Sonoma isn’t going to lose any sleep watching me hobble up the path with my rainbow colored ” frankendish” …but creating it was a super sweet project


and what a delight it was to look at the artwork of real ones.

(And YES..the soap does stay dryer.)

Now, for a couple of instructions on how to make them.





And other charming  examples

White Slaves Our Children Should Know

This is the introduction page of a book.

A book which we and our children NEED to read. Not “should” read. We NEED to read.

If only to stem the hemorrhaging of hate that’s been worked into our lives-concerning this  insane  manipulation of the ethnic races’ opinions of one another. From the grossly twisted affirmative action policies to the present day white apologists..who have not a thing to apologize for.

There are countless manipulations and actions that have been set into motion over the passed century because of this sick socio-political distortion.

I won’t ramble on this long list..today.

I’ll simply say that it will be a far different world when we surrender the offensive language of ” Look at what happened to Us…and what are You going to do about it?!”…..

….to embrace the TRUTH of “Look what They did to Me and You..and how are We going to get out of and through this together?”

BOTH of our mothers were raped and beaten.

Both of our fathers were shamed and killed.

In my book, that is enough reason to  reach for one another..not beat each other to death.

Genius On Hold: Walter L. Shaw


I don’t think we could even name a small fraction of all total inventions, never mind tallying up the ones who wore a ring.

It still makes for good conversation as a topic.

The story in the  following documentary is a good topic as well.

It tells the tale of Walter L. Shaw , an inventor, a gentle genius who deserves a lot more play in the history books concerning modern communications. But, just like the young unmarried genius above, this married one was walked on, cheated, wrung out and left hung up to dry.

It most definitely should also serve as a motivational example-on why it is of utmost importance to teach our up and coming  hopefuls how to stand up for themselves.

For there will be a lot of them.

And the same sleazes will still be working the same corners.


Latest Craft Project: Valentine’s Key Caps




Fat free Valentine’s alternatives for the Now:
Resin “chocolate/candy” key caps.


Hand designed “candy” forms crafted around Cherry MX compatible key board buttons.

-no giant sized (and expensive) teddy bears hanging by the dumpster like abandoned freak orphans- by the time the “romance” hits that black wall of doom. Tee and hee.

Required Reading

In the years to come, an astounding number  of us, worldwide, will be subject- or have loved ones subject- to laws concerning the disabled.

A serious read of this United Nations Convention on the “rights” of disabled people is in order. Don’t you think?

Since the Constitution doesn’t seem to cut it anymore. For us.

Read this first before diving into the rest of the  link.

Consider it….like setting the mood.

A DYI Video on Binding Off


With the grandchild arriving early, I looked for a quick refresher on the binding off technique. I needed it for a knitted cover that needed to be brought to a quicker finish.

I found this thorough and easy to understand video by a young woman.


What a delight it was to find a modern young lady expert in what some may call a “gender specific” tradition of knitting. I don’t consider it gender specific, however there is such vitriol spewed over what girls “should or should not be” interested in,  that it’s a beautiful relief to witness evidence of confident young women doing as they please-especially in the arts and traditions carried on through the centuries.

Flip Flops and Baggy Pants

Dirty feet of a man wearing flip flops on the old stone floor. Bologna, Italy
Warning; the inserted slideshow of pics could be best described as looking like a sort of pornographic Ad-libs.


It didn’t come from some lo grade amateur video or some rogue adolescent site.
It lives in the body of a recently updated federal 2018 Amendments to the Manual for Courts-Martial, United States
covering pages 347-348-349-350- and 351. (I wasn’t interested in the “wall/National Emergency” puppet show and decided to scour for recent changes behind the stage.)

There is no excuse at all to have stretched out this so-called “sample” over the course of four to five pages as was done-not unless you were a pre adolescent Beavis and Butthead sort of child. If any of us were to post one eighth of those words in public, how fast do you think the All Mighties wrath would have taken to inform us of our breaking some “sacred TOS”?



My eyes didn’t exactly sizzle and nor did I utter some squeak of shock. Considering the system at large, it’s been a consistent drag through the mud on all levels.
We’ve got our Online Officers huffing  over how “bad” we are or how “inappropriate” our posts are by banning us like we’re subjects to some arcane and hypocritical order; yet (as I’ve proven earlier) we can write and rave “Kill the old white man” all damned day..and no one says “boo”.
And, obviously, we can have this shameless garbage as well.

(If you can’t enlarge the slideshow, refer above to “Courts Martial” link and the pages specified.)


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It’s another example of the embarrassingly juvenile nature overseeing our important documents-a la “CDC Zombie Apocalypse” garbage.

And it’s another example of the soft tyranny we exist under.

Where the authorities and their lackeys jam our cheeks to the coals with one hand, digging their claws into our neck with the other …..straining to make us “act right”.
While in the meantime, with nearly every law of “decency” or “respect” we are intimidated under… there are some grade A gutless wonders chortling over yet another very unnecessary and decrepit example of their freedom to do as they wish. No class, no restraint. no…(once again) common sense. Yet, we’re getting accounts banned and being dogpiled upon and humiliated for every little infraction.

It’s like being a daughter chastised into being prim and proper with smacks and punishments, by a mother who wraps her legs around a stripper pole each night for dollar bills and free drinks. In other words.. massively hypocritical.

The biggest laugh? Immediately following this choice example given of an illegal sexual harassment scenario is a section addressing the punishments for “Obscene” materials (outline in red); for us “little folk” no doubt..the lords and ladies (obviously) may choose to be as obscene and out of hand wherever and whenever they wish in the public documents.
It’s about time these political officials (senators, reps, all of them) just take Casual Friday throughout the entire week. Seriously. It embarrasses me watching them on the screen in their fancy “distinguished” suits. For what? The illusion of “respect”? The illusion of “sophistication”?
Flip fops and baggy pants. That’s the only “uniform” that should apply in this doltish and laissez-faire kingdom of theirs.

Unfair Like That

Unrecognizable girls play video game with joystick

Unfair like that
What kind of Unfair do I mean?
When you’re on the field of battle with armor and weapons
modified to the teeth. A couple of cheat codes stashed away for
a couple of peeks. And maybe a sweet and sleek joystick outfitted
with so many shortcut keys that the brain boggles over why
anyone would even try to take you on.
When the one in front of you hasn’t even been playing
for a year yet. Where the skills have no chance of squaring
with best intentions.. no matter how many prayers are prayed
swear words are sworn or how many tears are shed.
And you answer the same question you could
have sworn you answered way too many times already.
When you fail to remember or care this was a game set to co-op.
For teaching and learning. For laughing and bargaining. Seeking. Discovering.
the biggest kick you find is visualizing the defeat and frustration
on the face of someone you plan to mercilessly stomp
with their hands tied behind their back..
That’s the kind of Unfair that I meant.
