Welcome to the BOMB.

The Blog Of the "Mother" of Bandit.
Bandit is my Hairless Chinese Crested--he's the "normal" one. I, on the other hand, am unrepentantly "pet-crazy." You know the type--the spinster who lives in the haunted house three blocks over with 72 cats...okay, so I don't have 72 cats, and my house isn't haunted--but my dogs wardrobe is better than mine! Need I say more? :~)
I've never been consistant at journaling, so the timing of my blogs will be sporadic at best. I just hope they are as entertaining to you as they are to me; however, be forewarned: Most of my blogs will be about The BaldOne. In spite of his Don King "do," I think he's just as cute as any of the Brothers B!
Now, if I can just remember not to get him wet--or feed him after midnight...

About Me

My photo
My bags are packed and I'm always ready to seek out an adventure with Bandit and Moggy in tow. Bandit is my thirteen year old Chinese Crested, who I frequently call The Bald One or The BaldOne Boy (like he was one of the Baldwin Brothers). Moggy’s full name is Pip-Moggy. He’s my two year old gansta-resuce kitty. I couldn’t decide between Pip (which are the spots on die and domino tiles) and Moggy (or Moggie when I mistakenly thought he was a she), so I combined the two. Moggy refers to the British term for "cat of unknown parentage .” So in essence, I have an almost bald dog, and I’ve named my cat “Spot.”

Fun Stuff (I'm doing now or have done)

  • Artistic Attempts weekly (alternating between Painting With A Twist, That Art Place, and Peniot's Palette).

  • Participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge.
  • Spades and Liverpool Rummy with the Spadetts weekly.
  • The Mighty Texas Dog Walk, Austin (fund raiser for Service Dogs, Inc--they train shelter dogs to be Service Dogs, then give them free of charge to people with disabilities.)

Everyone Has An Agenda.

This post is part of Think Kit by SmallBox.
January 23, 2016 prompt:  "Media Frenzy:  Nervous at airports? Created your first protest sign? Taken on a different perspective? How has what you've seen in the media changed you this year?"

Everyone Has An Agenda.
I have never been "Politically Correct."  I try not to hurt others, but I speak my mind. Sometimes I'm spot on. Sometimes I'm dead wrong. Sometimes I go off half-cocked and say something I regret, or I don't understand the issue and I mis-speak. But, like Steve Harvey, I own it and try to make amends. What I don't do, is blindly believe the "news media." 

Reporters no longer objectively report the news, they push their thoughts and opinions. I am extremely cynical of all news media.  I question everything I hear, believe none of it, and find the "professionals" reporting the "news" to be repugnant. Everyone has an agenda. Whether it is to increase Neilson Ratings, elect their pupet to public office, or push change in societal mores. 

Don't tell me what to think--give me the unbiased facts, and I will come to my own conclusions--whether they are right or wrong they will at least be mine. I don't need to regurgitate the PC dogma of the day. In fact, I often refuse to do so, even when I think it may have some merit. 

Technologically we live in exciting times. Media advances enable us to live in a global community where everything is at our fingertips. But technology also exposes our lack of objectivity--even as it attempts to disguise itself as "news."
