1. Jen (yes, that Jen) had this to say about my posting about the Supreme Court Decisions.
Someone decided to send me Elena’s post on the recent Supreme Court decisions. (To those who are doing this: cut it out. I’ve got better things to do with my time and my energy than block you on here for trying to start a flame war.) Rather than expressing my true feelings on what she has to say (which I will just say are not complimentary to her),
I don't know what happened to this girl but she clearly doesn't like me - which is fine. I'm not overly fond of her either. So why does she keep linking to me? And why does she feel the need to keep putting her uncomplimentary thoughts it out there? Oh... and I've been blocked from her blog for months now, so it's not like I can directly read or respond without some effort - seems rather cowardly to me.
I actually did respond to Jen on her blog. That comment awaited moderation. I wrote:
I think it’s cowardly to block someone from your blog and then talk about them behind their back – but then it seems that being able to confront someone up front isn’t your strong suit. Since I’ve known you it’s all about blocking and sniping. Grow up. Have something to say, say it to my face. Oh and your boy Obama – totally got put in his place last week by SCOTUS- more to come in November when he becomes a true lame duck president.
2. Jen's main point was that without changing your Facebook adjustments, you could simply use this - Rather.com.
in your social feeds with things
you'd rather see, like cats.
From the creators of Unbaby.me, comes the most robust system ever created for getting rid of the stuff you hate on Twitter and Facebook.
Seems like a pretty neat little tool, so I put it out there for your reading pleasure.
I don't think I'll use it though because it would also block what my more conservative friends are saying on topics. Also, it's not that I NEVER want to read what my liberal friends have to say on certain topics, it's more that I want to be totally prepared and have a drink and take a deep breath before I start reading their comments. Facing that purposefully rather than accidentally in a newsfeed is easier for me. To each, their own though.
3. Last week as the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul and I tried a new fish recipe. It was tilapia baked in orange juice - and it was delicious! I'm becoming pretty good at fixing fish - a skill I'm slowly acquiring because as the daughter of a rancher and granddaughter of a dairy farmer, I was raised to eat beef!
4. Rosie did peg saints for Sts. Peter and Paul and we had them proudly displayed on our table for the feast day!
5. Someone enjoyed her first 4th of July!
"Don't be ridiculous grandpa!"
6. I had two weddings to work this weekend. Mr. Pete dropped me off at the first one and ended up cantoring from the balcony. He wasn't dressed for it or even showered, but he sang it like a boss!! What a nice husband I have.
7. Noah has to start reading some Shakespeare next week so I thought I'd get tickets to go see 12th Night at Stan Hywet next week. About 20 years ago, Mr. Pete and I went there to see Hamlet and it was so enjoyable - they utilized the pond and other parts of the garden into the actual play- it was great staging! I remember it to this day. I plan to go over the play with him before we go and to that end I recently purchased -
