Dear Donald: Oregon Is Burning. Why Won't You Help Us?

Dear Donald: Oregon Is Burning. Why Won’t You Help Us?

The smoke was so thick last night, Donald, that my husband and I decided to shut off the irrigation water to avoid taking on further smoke. Jerry needed a reprieve from all the smoke he breathed in during the day. He’s painting the new cover over the pipe and well site. We belong to a […]

As Wildfire Smoke Hangs Heavily About, I Created An Herbal Infusion So That I Can Breathe

As Wildfire Smoke Hangs Heavily About, I Created An Herbal Infusion So That I Can Breathe

Oregon is still burning and the smoke was so thick this morning when I was outside watering that I frantically ran around gathering what I could from the yard to take back in the house for this morning’s tea. Given the dense smoke I was experiencing I gathered as many respiratory herbs I could find […]

What’s In A Name?

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission is assigned the task of rolling out legal recreational cannabis in our state. Retail outlets were finally approved as of yesterday along with some rules regarding the naming of various cannabis strains. Girl Scout Cookies, Charlotte’s Web, Dr. Who, Candyland, Jedi Kush as well as others are apparently too enticing […]

One would think that the conservative […]

I had a better time there visiting with people and listening to music than I’ve ever had in a bar..ever. So I was astonished to read an article saying they might have to close down […]

No Compassion For Anyone But Themselves

Has compassion left the building? Does everyone with skin any shade darker than white pose a threat to us? Conservatives want President Obama to bomb ISIL, but have no answer when familes, desperate for safe haven, arrive at our border seeking asylum. I saw on the news last night a map of the country highlighting […]

Love, Tears and a Whole Bunch of Freedom

    Lots of things have happened in the last few weeks that make this liberal witch’s heart both proud and broken. On the proud side, SCOTUS effectively legalized same-sex marriage in all fifty states. Love won. Another proud moment: a Socialist/Independent is running for President as a Democrat and everyone knows about the Socialist […]

Three Days Until Cannabis Is Legal In Oregon

Will there ever be a day where we make something legal and then NOT craft laws around it that can throw our asses in jail, lose our jobs, housing, etc. if we, you know, use it legally? Cannabis will be legal in Oregon on Wednesday, but apparently we can still be fired for consuming cannabis […]
