Sunday Scribbles | HillYES!

I had such a long week, but I survived it and it’s all because of passion and intensity for making sure Hillary Clinton gets back to the White House in January 2017.  Effectively, the nomination is hers because Bernie Sanders doesn’t have any way – especially mathematical – for acquiring the number of delegates required.  Yet, he continues to believe that it’s possible but …

As expected, he did ‘win’ Indiana; however, not in the fashion in which he has been accustomed to in caucuses.  As we analyzed polled data coming in and looked at specific regions, we knew this was going to be close.  By all statistical conclusions, Hillary won Indiana because she took his edge.

And then, Guam.  Hillary won Guam by an incredible margin … 59.8% – 39.2% … and I enjoyed it because of Sanders advocate Tim Robbins equating Guam to South Carolina:

I had basically moved on from Sanders until all of the hate-filled BSers were in Los Angeles spewing hateful, curse laden words at Hillary supporters headed to her rally in East LA.  What set me off was the fact that BSers yelled, screamed at children and even ripped pro-Hillary signs from their hands (well documented) … that was a line that should have NEVER been crossed.  Any tolerance I had for BS and his supporters fizzled weeks ago; however, my patience for any of them has flamed out as well.  There was one incredible moment at those protests that just sent Hillary’s message of LOVE AND KINDNESS through the ‘roof’ …

And then of course the now dead #DropOutHillary attempt by the remaining BSers …

And of course, Donald Trump just couldn’t help himself when he called Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) ‘goofy’ after she was calling out for his racist, hate-filled speeches after winning Tuesday in Indiana.  But what he didn’t expect, as usual, was to be schooled by the Senator via Twitter:

Trump truly has no idea what’s ahead for him.  His anti-Hillary comments and his lack of knowledge of how things actually work politically, economically, policy-wise and diplomatically will be his downfall and Hillary will school him in every debate.  And when he attacks Hillary, he’s just kicking the hornets nest of Democrats who’ve already dealt with Bernie Sanders and his cronies.

And this cartoon pretty much sums up how a good number of Republicans feel about Trump being the presumptive nominee:

Lincoln out.

I, along with Team Hillary, are NEVER going to allow Donald Trump anywhere near the Oval Office … and anyone around me being apathetic toward the political process and voting better not have ONE WORD to say about my intensity!

Jews were forced to wear to wear these stars in Germany to identify them publicly.

The 2016 Days of Remembrance started earlier this week – a time to remember what happens when a government enacts intolerance into law.  It’s hard to believe that its been 71 years since the liberation of the Nazi death camps and the discovery of the world that over 12.5M human lives were lost at the hands of these murderous thugs – with 6M being Jews.  As individuals we must always remember the stories of survivors and then we must make sure that The Holocaust is never forgotten:

As I said at the start, it was a really bloody long week, but the weekend has really made things better albeit not being able to set my mum as originally planned; however, that’ll happen sooner than later! 🙂 I’m hooked on several series on Netflix … because my favourites aren’t on right now!  The one that is ‘killing’ me waiting for is THE WALKING DEAD … that series final still plays over and over in my head!

And we’ve only two episodes left of THE ORIGINALS … this season has been intense! Usually I’ve nothing nice to say about Nicklaus, but right now – I’m liking him!  I hate that Davina had to die and now Marcel … the writers have done a good job of keeping most of us on our toes and right now, I don’t know what to expect!

I’ve been watching EuroVision 2016 and there are so many great acts this year; however, I am partial to Joe and Jake from the United Kingdom … I love, love, love, love, love, love their song:

Even if they don’t win it outright, they’ve already won over the UK! 🙂 I cannot wait for them to release a few more songs … 

And a few of you who were so happy to see me back asked for quotes, current music I’m into and pictures of my recent travels / excursions  … and so, I give you some of my favourites:

Currently, I’m really into Frou Frou – you’ll recognise Imogene Heap’s beautiful voice … and their catchy little tune, MUST BE DREAMING:

I recommend their entire album … it’s a MUST listen and if you’re like me, you’ll end up buying it outright!  It’s melodic … it always picks me up and makes me dance across the floor! 🙂

Some moments this week that make me smile:

It’s always a good thing to have your camera handy for shots just like this!

I miss this little girl … I cannot believe this September will be three years she’s gone. 😦

And this is HRH Princess Alexa, who has brought much joy to our house since 2/2014.

And now, quotes galore …

And that’s it – for now … I’ve decided that a big blog on Sundays is what I can do for now … plus, I’m really relaxed 🙂

Now, for one last little song – this is my shake my ass song at the moment … 

And on that note … everyone have a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious week! xo

Peace –

Ahhhh life …


Hocus Pocus - Whaaaaat

Tis’ October … and yes, it’s been a while.  And no, Halloween isn’t my favourite holiday, but it’s second.  I’ve already watched Hocus Pocus — uhmmm, three times. Yes, three and it will happen more. 🙂  And whilst I’ve been gone, WordPress has upgraded itself and wow, I can post gifs … without my Photobucket account! 🙂

Will & Grace -- Jack & Karen Jumping up & down

When you’re not well – you have way too much time on your hands to think about things, people and places.  You can let that consume you or work through it — and move forward from things, people and places that just aren’t for you anymore.  I’ve been on this journey, actually, since May 2014.  And honestly, it was rough for a while, but now … well, now things are settling down … and I’m starting to be back in a good place. 🙂

Let me just start off by saying, I need to belong to NA.  Wait for it … I know what you’re thinking, but you’re not right … I’m talking about Netflix Anonymous. I get a huge Vizio Smart TV — and now, I’m insane with Netflix and Amazon Prime … I’m not even going to touch Hulu!  Right now my obsession on Netflix is THE ORIGINALS.  Just started S2 — and I just watch and watch and watch and watch … you, get the picture, right?

I’m glad college football season is back and I’m glad to be back in Tallahassee for one of our first big games this season … we play Miami tomorrow night.  It doesn’t matter if any of our arch rivals are ranked or unranked, losing or winning … these games are ALWAYS hard fought … just glad we’re at Doak Campbell this year!  We have a young, young team on both sides of the ball and well, Golson hasn’t really impressed me completely … hoping Sean gets a chance to throw the ball tomorrow night. 🙂

So, the Republicans have done everything they can to destroy Hillary, but their repeated attempts have failed – miserably.  They forget that Hillary has had to fight her entire life and has been dinged constantly from all sides … she’s a survivor, a fighter and tells it like it is … I’m so proud to be a part of her campaign!  The Grand Old Party .. ain’t so grand anymore!

And, that’s about all I’m good for tonight … I’ve missed scribbling down my thoughts – so, my goal is to be back at least once per week — yes, I know, I know – you’ve heard that all before, but truth is — this little bit of scribbling has lit the fire again!

Everyone have a great weekend … and GO SEMINOLES!

Hugs –

Bryce

I’ve some things to say –


1ecc8d928151eeaa44ba1dbc17f80b93

I’ve been busier than a one-armed wallpaper hanger the last few weeks – it’s that time of year for me – and no, I don’t do taxes … but it will all calm down at the end of this month. Thank God. And although I love scribbling out my thoughts, ideas and insanity – priorities, you know.

But seriously, I’ve some things to say now … so, grab a drink, sit down and as Bette Davis once said, “Buckle-up, it’s going to be a bit bumpy.”

I’m ready for Hillary because I was ready in 2008 — and I’ve waited (or will have waited) eight long years to campaign for her once again.  I believe in Hillary and I know she was the right choice in 2008, but people opted for the spotlight of Mr Obama and not experience.  

And what a price we’ve paid for that lack of experience – especially in our foreign policy (this incident in the Ukraine would NOT be happening right now), handling of handouts (you know, that $890 Billion stimulus package), the utter disregard for the middle class (but using the name to stir up support) and this train-wreck of a health care reform (yes, Obamacare SUCKS in its purpose – it has hurt more Americans than it has helped) … Experience, no matter what anyone says, matters in the end.  

Many people think every Democrat voted for Mr Obama; however, that’s just not the case. I, myself, voted for Hillary in 2008 & 2012 (write-in) and in just two short years — I’ll be marking her name as my choice for the next President of the United States.  Madame President has a very nice ring to it — and quite frankly, is long overdue.  And before you misguided wacko’s try to call me a racist — don’t. Because I’m not.

And, not ONE word from me … GO SEE IT.

This one – I  her beyond measure -destroyed her daytime bed (I still can’t even deal with it) Thursday and so she only has a towel for – well, a while. She really is getting better … potty training is at prolly 70% and her teeth – on the top and bottom – betwixt her ‘fangs’ have broken through … This is all a sign that her teething/biting days are now numbered! She definitely keeps the house on alert!! 

All has been quiet on the telly-front … yes, I’m still watching my spring favourites – Once Upon a Time, Reign and Elementary.  I must admit, I’m still bitter over the entirely short seasons of Downton Abbey and Sherlock.  Good tv doesn’t happen often and when one is left wanting more … well, it just pisses me off!

And here we are – many days later and the world has done nothing but place sanctions on Russia.  Granted, the sanctions in place are going to devastate Russia in the near future; however, the Ukraine should not be left alone to fight Russia.  

I’m amazed – and not in a good way – at how the Ukraine’s neighbours have pretty much done nothing to support them in this current crisis.  I know that war isn’t the answer, but sending troops to help Ukraine bolster its defences would be a show of support that would send a clear message to Putin that the region isn’t going to stand for his meddling.  All we can do for now is pray that the Ukraine stands tall and steadfast.

And then there was Saving Mr Banks. I’d heard the good, the bad and ugly about the movie chronicling Walt Disney’s painstaking 20-year journey to acquire the rights to PL Travers’ story Mary Poppins.  So, I let it drag its way to OnDemand — and rented it.

And to my surprise, I loved it.  Granted, it’s not the fast-paced, energetic, suck-you-into-the-story-from-the-very-first-millisecond movie Disney is known for, but it is truly a glimpse into the world of Walt Disney himself. 

Ms. Travers truly did lead a very sad and heartbreaking childhood in Australia — her father an alcoholic and her mother just trying to keep them afloat through hope and that alone — well, it tugged at the heartstrings.  I think for my take on it — I had to realise that it wasn’t a movie to entertain as much as it was to show the world how Walt Disney continued to handle the adversity (even after his success) right up until the very end.

Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks were brilliant in their roles as P L Travers and Walt Disney respectively.  I’m no movie critic nor would I ever pretend to be one, but if you want to see and understand how Mary Poppins came to be on the big screen – this movie is for you.

So, here we are … that moment in which I’m tired of rambling and have decided that this is the end of this post.  I think it more than makes up for my absence as of late!  As always, here are some of my favourite quotes to tide you over until some inspiration sets itself upon me and pushes me to my keyboard …

And that’s that … I hope everyone has a great week!  🙂
