The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.

The Facts

My name is Pam and I’ve been blogging since October 17 2001.

I write about family life, politics, whatever happens to be growing in my yard and other current events.

My husband Mike shows up in my posts, as does Youngest stepdaughter [YsD], Oldest Daughter [OD, a.k.a. ‘Tonie’] and dogs Bree, Badger & Daisy. Sometimes, the grandkids.

Lately I do nothing but post pictures.

The Random

Never grew up, never wanted to.

Optimistic Realist.

Greens and Blues. Currently in love with Black.

Fiscal Conservative.

I’m adopted. Through testing I found Irish, English and Norse ancestry, but nobody really knows who I am, even me. I should have been a spy.

The Rules

You are welcome to disagree with me. Heck, I could be wrong about something and not know it.

The only time I will alter a comment in any way is to delete spam. If you piss me off too many times, you become spam.

Like most bloggers, I solicit readership. I want opinions. This is not a private diary or a tiny fascist government.

Thanks for reading, and please don’t hesitate to email me if you have a question or wish to use one of my photographs. They’re not all that, but they’re mine. You know how it is.


I have a little eye like MOO. Don’t judge! Or if you do, don’t tell me.
