♫ Olivia Newton-John … Gone But Not Forgotten ♫


This says it all!! … “I’m happy. I’m lucky. I’m grateful. I have much to live for. And I intend to keep on living it,” she told Gayle King in an interview for “CBS This Morning” conducted at her California ranch in 2019. “‘Why me’ has never been a part of it.”

Filosofa's Word

Yesterday the world received the sad news that singer Olivia Newton-John had died at age 73.  A cause of death was not given, but Newton-John was diagnosed with breast cancer that surfaced for a third time in 2017.  Her Grease costar and hit duet partner John Travolta was quick to weigh in with a tribute on social media …

“My dearest Olivia, you made all of our lives so much better. Your impact was incredible. I love you so much. We will see you down the road and we will all be together again. Yours from the moment I saw you and forever! Your Danny, your John!”

While I liked much of her music, I didn’t know a whole lot about her, so I went in search of this evening.

From Songfacts, I learned …

Olivia Newton-John was born in 1948 in Cambridge, England, but emigrated with her family to…

Mar-a-Lago Raided


Dare we hope? But this is indeed HUUGE … “This is big news and it’s unprecedented for a president’s home to be raided by the FBI. But everything about Trump’s presidency (sic) has been unprecedented. The crimes of this president (sic) are unprecedented.”

claytoonz

The FBI has raided Mar-a-Lago. We learned this from Trump himself who made a very whiny post about it on his joke of a social media platform, Truth Social. He’s partly upset the FBI didn’t give him, a guy with a habit of flushing evidence, advance notice of their raid.

This is big news and it’s unprecedented for a president’s home to be raided by the FBI. But everything about Donald Trump’s presidency (sic) has been unprecedented. The crimes of this president (sic) are unprecedented.

Mar-a-Lago is a golf club and a resort. It’s also Donald Trump’s legal residence. He’s not a resident of New York City anymore. He lives in Palm Beach, Florida. But, he doesn’t spend a lot of time in Florida during the summer because it’s hot. Nobody wants to see a hot and sweaty Trump. It’s icky. He was actually at Trump Tower in the city…

If I held out an arm, eventually one would land on it and petal me into stillness


WOW!! … “It was high summer and there were hundreds of butterflies in there.” … and more!! Seán Hewitt, All Down Darkness Wide: A Memoir (Penguin Publishing, July 12, 2022).

Live & Learn

It was high summer and there were hundreds of butterflies in there. I had stood and watched them gather, like living jewels, around a table of fruits, amazed at the way the tiny croziers of their tongues would uncurl and drink from the nectar of the oranges. The air was thick with them, spiraling as though played by little flurries of wind. If I held out an arm, eventually one would land on it and petal me into stillness. I loved to see how they mimicked the forms of the world on their wings – an ocellus, or the pattern of snake-print, all their gorgeous subterfuge. I had always wanted to be decorated like that, to hold out an arm and to have all the beauty of the world land on it, and make me beautiful, too.

I originally planned to include this cartoon in my Jolly Monday post, but changed my mind for two reasons:  a) it is of a socio-political nature and I try very hard to keep Jolly Monday upbeat and G-rated, and b) I didn’t want it to be just one of 20 other cartoons, but wanted people to take a closer look, to ponder it for a bit.  The ‘toon needs no explanation or commentary from me, so I shall give none.

Lessons From Kansas


THIS!! … “Indiana is the first state to create new limits on abortions after the Supreme Court overruled its predecessors and declared it’s not a constitutional right. This vote was just three days after voters in Kansas rejected a measure to strip abortion from the state constitution, and after a ten-year-old fled Ohio, where nearly all abortions are banned, to abort her rapist’s fetus in Indiana.”

claytoonz

Indiana lawmakers made sure not to do one thing last Friday when they banned most abortions in their yee-haw state. They made sure not to let their citizens vote on it. It’s a lesson they learned from Kansas.

Indiana is the first state to create new limits on abortions after the Supreme Court overruled its predecessors and declared it’s not a constitutional right. This vote was just three days after voters in Kansas rejected a measure to strip abortion from the state constitution, and after a ten-year-old fled Ohio, where nearly all abortions are banned, to abort her rapist’s fetus in Indiana.

Republicans nationwide were eager to ban abortion after the SCOTUS ruling but Kansas has slowed their roll. State Republicans in Florida, West Virginia, South Carolina, Nebraska, and Iowa were talking a lot of shit until the conservative voters in Kansas spoke out. The question every conservative needs to…
