CHAIN OF FOOLS – ARETHA FRANKLIN – Marilyn Armstrong

FOWC with Fandango — Chain We always think of this song as "lovers" or at the least relationships. How about our whole country -- a chain of fools. As a nation, that's what we are. A chain of fools. From wherever we come -- the left, right, or middle, we are all of us an endless … Continue reading CHAIN OF FOOLS – ARETHA FRANKLIN – Marilyn Armstrong

A SNOWY DAY WITH SUNFLOWERS – Marilyn Armstrong

A Snowy Day With Sunflowers – 02/28/2019 Garry came back from the grocery while the snow was softly falling.

Not only is it brilliantly acted, directed with a script right out of the actual trial, but … Continue reading FANATICISM AND IGNORANCE IS FOREVER BUSY AND NEEDS FEEDING – Marilyn Armstrong

Yet we hide the good, even from ourselves, behind a socially acceptable modesty while brandishing our flaws and frailties … Continue reading SHINING AGAIN – Marilyn Armstrong

A COLLAPSING WORLD IN “SAN ANDREAS FAULT” – Marilyn Armstrong

RDP Tuesday: Fault Last night, tired of the endless depressing, appalling, horrible news from around the world, Garry played a movie he had previously recorded. San Andreas Fault is not merely a disaster film. It is every disaster film you have ever seen in one film. It's earthquakes that will turn Kansas into the Pacific beach capital of … Continue reading A COLLAPSING WORLD IN “SAN ANDREAS FAULT” – Marilyn Armstrong
