Jury Duty Report


In late October I received a summons to appear for jury duty on December 6. This is old hat for me. Apparently, I am one of the lucky ones. This was my fifth summons for jury duty. One of the ladies there stated her age and said it was her first time. Her stated age was three years’ higher than my own. One of the judges came in to speak with us while we were waiting. The highest number she had ever heard of was a lady in her eighties who had been summoned six times.

The Process

If you have not been summoned to jury duty, or not been summoned lately, the process works something like this. You may receive a jury qualification questionaire. These days, such is filled out online. This may be a new thing or limited to some courts. I do not remember having filled one out before this current go-round. I received the summons to participate in the questionaire last summer.

Can Someone Send Her Some Tips?


I saw the headline, but the actual story is unbelievable. Newly minted Congress-woman and Democratic Socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is taking a week off due to “burn out”, before she has even started her new job, and is calling it a timeout for ‘self-care’. She isn’t sure what ‘self-care’ is, so she took to social media to ask for tips. She mentioned on Instagram that there are people who are ostracized for doing a facial, and how her 3-4 times a week yoga schedule has been disrupted due to her new work schedule. Ok….

Keep in mind, she hasn’t started the job yet. Then how does she find the time for all this social media?

Ocasio-Cortez laments that she used to make healthy wild rice and salmon dinners, now she falls asleep with her makeup on…….wow…! She somehow managed to unseat an experienced Democratic Representative Joe Crowley, who actually worked for the people of Queens and his district. I don’t understand why he didn’t leave “instructions” for the job she would be taking, along with self-care tips. I’m sure he never neglected his facial regimen, in spite of being on the go.

Unisex Maternity Pants and Twerky Turkeys – Perverting Thanksgiving in Style


R> members have observed that large corporations have no compunctions about selling out to the gender-fluid crowd. Well, it’s happened again. The commercialization of wholesome Thanksgiving stuffing is now an excuse to market maternity wear for men – yes, unisex maternity wear. Moreover, the company responsible for this has the temerity to make their sales pitch adorably corny, selling the feminizing clothing as “Thanksgiving dinner pants”:
