I went to a presentation celebrating the 80th anniversary of Orson Welles’ 1938 radio broadcast of H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds”. The reason this particular broadcast has lived on in history and is still remembered and talked about today is really quite interesting. The radio play starts with a typical program playing music from … Continue reading THE ” WAR OF THE WORLDS ” MYTH – BY ELLIN CURLEY
FOWC with Fandango — Dingy I thought I knew this word. It could be a little boat, often a little boat that lives on a bigger boat and is used to back and forth from the shoreline.

I could not have said it better.
I have only this to say tonight – after a day of news about people murdered while praying.
Start where you are
Use what you have
Do what you can
Don’t wait to be asked. Find out where people are needed and go there. Send money to people running for office who believe in equal rights, justice, fairness, and inclusion. Sign up to knock on doors or make phone calls. Go to the march. Make a sign. Hold the sign over your head so people passing in cars will see it.
Do not be afraid. The people who were killed today can’t march, they can’t vote.
We will have to do it for them.

Power stayed on. The dogs hated it, but otherwise, it went well. The grocery store made a … Continue reading AUTUMN WHILE IT RAINS – Garry and Marilyn Armstrong
RDP Sunday–Home Be it ever so humble, home is going to really cost you. I never really felt at home at my parent's house. All I wanted was to be old enough to run. My first marriage was the classic "jailbreak." He was still living in his parents' attic. I had a rented room near … Continue reading HOMES – Marilyn Armstrong
