Saw Neil deGrasse Tyson speak in Stillwater

He spoke at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater on Nov. 6th for a benefit for the library sponsored by the alumni association.  I bought two of his books and got them signed and got my picture taken with him!! The books are “The Pluto Files” and “Death by Black Hole”.

Cool guy!!

Three Mile Island and other disasters – 30 years later

Three Mile Island had a nuclear accident on March 28, 1979.

The next day, March 29, 1979, I got married for the first time, in San Antonio.

I guess that was a bad omen. We only lived together about a year. He moved out and couldn’t keep his hands off my girlfriends.  He did a lot of disrespectful and abusive things to me.  I saw him again last year, and I think he’s finally grown up.

What I found in my cake icing……..

I got two cans of Betty Crocker Coconut Pecan Frosting to put on a German Chocolate Cake I made.

I decided to cook the frosting and put milk in it, since it was nearly all sugar and coconut.

I cooked the two cans of frosting. I put three egg yolks in it and milk, to thicken it.

When I spread the frosting on the cake, I found three 2 inch long pieces of weird looking chicken parts. One end looked like three little white branches of cartilage, and the other end was flat, oval and dark yellow, like a piece of chicken skin–stuck together. Picked them out of the frosting. I was grossed out.  There were three of these pieces, made up of three cartilage stalks joined to a flat dark yellow piece.

I did not see the chicken pieces inside the yolks. So were they in the frosting???

I am baffled. Whatever it is, it’s gross.

:wtf: :shrug:

I think I’m gonna barf. The cake is in the trash.

“Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives” — John Lennon

this is more and more obvious every day. The country is run by vicious, belligerent, narcissistic, sociopathic white men and their minions. They do not have a shred of decency. All they care about is money and power.  Greed is infinite.

We didn’t know about workers “going postal” until the Reagan years of union busting and mass layoffs.  It’s not a coincidence.

The rest of society suffers greatly in illness, stress, inability to cope, sudden death, alcoholism, social disruption, and so on.  The bosses are unreasonable. If those tax cuts worked, wouldn’t they have been hiring people instead of firing people by the millions and shipping the jobs overseas to increase their profits? We’ve had low taxes on the rich for the past eight years.
