Friday Fun Link – Barack Obama’s Coolest Presidential Moments

Ah, simpler times…  

No @ChickfilA For You Thanks To @TD_Canada Text Alerts!

About a year and a half ago, my credit card got compromised.  I don’t think I blogged about it but I posted this on Facebook at the time in response to a post by someone else who said their card got compromised: I just had my first encounter with credit card fraud too.  Early the […]

With the almost unbelievable events in the US since Trump was elected, George Orwell’s classic novel, originally released in 1949, which details a dystopian future society where the government spies on, controls and lies to its citizens, has hit the top of the Amazon bestseller list. But there are other books that even better capture the dread and doom […]

86 Books Barack Obama Recommended During His Presidency

  Another thing I’m going to miss about Obama is that, unlike Cheeto Jesus, Obama was actually a reader. For the record… 1. The Naked and the Dead, Norman Mailer 2. One Hundred Years of Solitude, Gabriel García Márquez 3. The Golden Notebook, Doris Lessing 4. The Woman Warrior, Maxine Hong Kingston 5. Brown Girl Dreaming, […]
