The Widdershins

Posts Tagged ‘Open Thread

I’m suffering from both too much and not enough to say today, plus tons of life stuff to get to. So, Happy Father’s Day, happy Juneteenth and happy weekend!

Open thread.

Hello Shinners! I’m extra heads-down at work this week, but wanted to give you all some fresh thread to munch on.

Here are some stories that interested me this week:

The Arizona Audit: A Fricasseed Chicken Ate My Ballot

The Ford F150: Electric Biden Boogaloo

It’s up to you, Noo Yawk

Injustice for Andrew Brown Jr.

Fighting for Florida

Tawk amongst yerselves!

A bouquet for all the shinners


Good Superbowl Sunday Widdershins!

I can only say with a bit of sadness that this is my last active post for The Widdershins.  I didn’t come to this lightly and when I told my dear blog friends mb and DYB they understood.  Think of it this way: I didn’t ask the Widdershins Board of Regents about it but I’m taking emeritus status.

For one thing I cannot tell you how many revisions if not absolute discards I do when writing a post.  It takes me a lot of time but that’s just me.

Second can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked at the screen and wondered “what am I going to write about?” although there are plenty of topics these days.

I will be forever grateful to mb and our late chatblu when I submitted a sample post and they agreed to add me to our stable of writers.  I learned a lot and not just on the composition page.  I dug into all the background stuff in the admin section of a wordpress blog.

Also not to worry, I’ll still be around and mb has assured me I’ll still have the same privileges so if someone is stuck in spam I can get you out and I suppose I’ll still be the master of the sidebar.  LOL

And lastly I’m going to ask all of our readers and commenters to p*l*e*a*s*e consider becoming a writer for this blog.  You are a bunch of talented commenters and you can do it.

Oh and my strategy for the Super Bowl?  Brady and the Bucs because that may persuade Drew Brees to stay with the Saints for another year.  Patrick will be playing in more Super Bowls.

This is an open thread.





Good Weekend Widdershins

The countdown to November 3rd continues and it seems that tRump is in full panic mode.  And so is the media.  I cannot tell you how many segments or articles I’ve seen or read that El Caudillo del Mar-a-Lago may still pull out a win.  All I can say is if what I’ve seen of long lines for early voting and requests for absentee ballots are any indications, the media is once again spinning things for their own purposes. 

So anyway, speaking of the media let’s take a look at what’s happening in the world of political cartoons.

Good weekend Widdershins

Yes, it’s now the fall season.  Yay!  The National Hurricane Center has a graphic of the Atlantic and includes “Tropical cyclone activity is not expected during the next 48 hours”.  Yippee.  Also, the local mets have promised us a cold front next week which may even give the a/c a break.  I might fix something in the oven if that’s the case.

So with that let’s take a look at some songs about autumn. Some of these may be repeats but that’s okay too.

Okie doke.  Feel free to add any of your own favorite autumn songs below or anything else that may strike your fancy.  Open thread of course.
