My Weather

(Community Matters) . . . for the next few days

marfa weather

pretty yummy. MPR board meeting, coffees & dinners w/ friends and just hanging with my husband (he just flew back in).

Pope Francis on Atheists

(Community Matters) I love his remarks that humanism is a place where Atheists, other secularists and Christians come together and that this work is what pleases God.


10 LGBT Films

(Community Matters) Indiewire – 10 LGBT films to watch this summer

Kudos to Boy Scouts

(Community Matters) Kudos to the Boy Scouts of America for lifting their ban on gay scouts. Of course, I would liked to have seen the ban on gay adult leaders lifted too, and this is an important, monumental first step. AAS 


(Community Matters) ughhh, happened again. I have 3 of the same black linen shirts and all are missing. I know exactly what’s going on. Blanca sometimes hides my stuff. So, today I’m hiding her check among the cleaning supplies – where she’s sure to never look.

Blanca has worked with us for nearly 14 years. She demands paid time off, bonuses, Christmas gifts and to be paid even the weeks when we’re away (which these days are many) – plus she takes off Mondays whenever she feels like it.

She’s great and we drive each other crazy – sorta for entertainment. Scares the heck out of Steven. He stays far away from of our antics – but we lasso him in from time to time.

On Monday, I told him I’d attributed a complaint about her to him. Come to think about it, that might be why this unexpected Wed night/Thurs trip to Baltimore came about. He’s such a chicken.

Hey, don’t judge me as the bad one – she does this too. She routinely reinforces his world vision – telling him things like how when I’m away she has almost no work because he is so clean, neat and orderly.
