Being a woman I cannot tell you how offended I am that men in government think they have a right to tell me what I can and cannot do with my body. Here in the US the Republican Party, in a mounting number of states under their control, is changing the law with regard to what women may do with regard to their reproductive rights. In some instances, taking back their rights altogether. It is really quite alarming.
Then yesterday a document was leaked from the Supreme Court of the United States showing that the conservative judges, who are in the majority, are considering overturning a federal law from 1973 called Roe v Wade. Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court ruled that the Constitution of the United States protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose to have an abortion without excessive government restriction. If this happens then there’s o saying what might follow.
What century are we living in? Hmmm, I feel women’s marches coming on. I will gladly join one in protest.
I’m going to stop right there as this in my fun One Liner Wednesday post and I need a good laugh today.
Good morning and Happy Hump Day! The debate continues with regards to masking up. I’m vaccinated and twice boosted so I have stopped wearing a mask in public, unless of course I’m in a medical facility, and then I respectfully comply. It all makes perfect sense to me. However I am still shocked at some of the behavior I witness. Why argue about it? Do you want to be dead right?.
Being married is like two peas in a pod, or so they say. One can complete the other’s sentences and who hasn’t got ready to go out only to find your husband wearing the exact same color scheme that you have chosen. It’s uncanny how you can mirror the other’s thoughts the longer you are together. So why, on some days, do we act as if we are from different planets? I think you get my drift.
Wine Tasting is such a fun thing to do and it is interesting to learn how to pair wines with food. However, I must admit that I struggle trying to describe all those flavors that are supposed to be exploding in my mouth. For instance I honestly never taste chocolate in wine, do you? If I did, I think I would be in big trouble, seeing as I love chocolate. I wonder if some people just make these things up to sound as if they know what they were talking about. Just a thought.
If you have large dogs, as I do, then you understand that nothing is safe on the kitchen counter tops. Yesterday I had roughly two pounds of fish on mine that I was preparing for dinner. I left the kitchen for a nano second and on return one of my black Labs had scarfed the lot. Probably in one gulp knowing her! Needless to say, dinner was late while I had to thaw out something else.
Good Wednesday morning! Having a drink or two with your friends is fun and sociable but those calories add up, so keep count. Don’t believe me? Just stop drinking for a week and see the weight drop off. Cheers!
Although I am not religious, I am aware that we are in the period of Lent on the Christian calendar. Being able to give up something for 40 days, as a sign of sacrifice and to test self-discipline, is what we can all do at any time, regardless of our faith. So here is mine.
