Ten Wet Weather Songs. Do You Know Them All?

It’s another dreary, gray day in January and I am thinking about … rain. I know a Chicago winter should be all about snow, but we have been blessed(?) by warm weather for most of the season, so the precipitation that is popping up in my head is the wet stuff instead of the white... Read more »

Don't Fence Me In.

The text message popped up on my phone early this month. “We need 98 people to renew their memberships before Trump takes the stage at a rally in Toledo tonight. Yours expired. Renew now.” The text came with a link to NRSC.news.  A  little Google research for “NRSC”  turned up the National Republic Senatorial Committee. Huh? Had... Read more »

Pet Names--What Do You Call Your Partner?

It is a four-letter word that I like to use. In fact, I use it a lot. My friends have taken bets on how many times that four-letter combo will leave my mouth on a given night. If you are a gambling person here is a hint: play the over. It is something I am... Read more »

This Loud Chick give Hillary a Kick

Hey kids, I’m back again. Enough of you like me so that the Master of this Domain has invited me back for another blurb. And, as a great lady once (many times?) said, “Can we talk?” Hillary Clinton. I supported her. I marched for her. I voted for her. I thought I knew her. And... Read more »

Now We're 64!

Hi Babe, We were in our 20’s when we first met. Barely in our 20’s. We were each 21, legal for most things, and pretty advanced in our education, but really just kids. We were living in adjoining dorms, in a neighborhood where people just didn’t hang out for the weekend. Yet there we both... Read more »

The Lab Rolls, Just Like The Rolling Stones

Want to see what our lab looks like? That’s it on the left. “What?” you say. Where are the pictures of the equipment and the smiling faces and the heads peering down microscopes? Sure, those are all interesting ways of showing the lab. But I was looking for something new. Inspired by the timeline charts... Read more »
