Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up

Yesterday, marking the 5th anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq, was far from a somber day, for me. I have to somewhat disconnect from my feelings about the war because I live with it, on too many levels. As a military spouse, of course, I live with the Iraq … Continue reading

Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up

A late edition of the Ten Post Round-Up…life has a curious way of keeping you from your scheduled plans (know what I mean?). With the five year anniversary of the Iraq invasion, I am spending more time than usual thinking about the enormous changes that have happened in my life … Continue reading

Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up

Another day, another Round-up, and boy is it a doozy. I came across some updates and some new tidbits of interest. Speaking of new tidbits, I was in my van most of the day, yesterday and this song keeps popping up on the radio. It’s so catchy, I can’t help … Continue reading

Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up

A lot of wild women in the news, this week. A bigot gets a standing ovation, in Oklahoma. Mary Ann stands in a line-up. And, Madonna gets inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In honor of Madonna, I’m posting my all-time favorite song/video (turn the volume down … Continue reading

Won’t Get Fooled Again

This song by The Who is not just the theme song for the television series “CSI”; or one of the greatest songs in music history. This song is the anthem of the 2008 Presidential Race. The chorus of “Won’t Get Fooled Again” goes as follows: “I’ll tip my hat to … Continue reading

Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up

The time has come for me to begin my “Diva-fication” for my work week (“Diva” is my work name, kind of like “Diddy” without the annual variations. I was actually given that alias by my early blogosphere friends and I have worn the moniker proudly for more than 5 years). … Continue reading

Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up

My apologies for the late-edition of the round-up, today. I’ve been feeling a little off, physically, so I decided to take it easy and slept right through the time I normally prepare and post. And, since I’m not feeling so hot, today, I’ve gotta keep the music to a light … Continue reading

Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up

Ah, Monday…the beginning of another busy work week. It’s also when we get to see which of the many news stories that broke before and over the weekend stunk enough to stick. Personally, I look forward to Monday’s because that’s when I get to find out what’s on Uncle Jay’s … Continue reading

Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up

Great Hoogally-Moogally! The writers’ strike is over and the Academy Awards will go on, as scheduled, tonight! The “Oscars” have always been sort of a big deal in our home, where we play “guess the winner” (and I always win). This year, I’ll probably skip them because I haven’t really … Continue reading

President Bush’s Safari to Find Friendly Faces

President Bush is in Africa this week, sulking because he didn’t get his way. In one of the rare times the past seven years, the House of Representatives, now under Democrat control for the first time in 12 years, defended the Constitution and refused to allow the President to bully … Continue reading
