March is Women’s History Month. History has not always been fair to women, don’t even get me started on that big fool Henry VIII, who killed his wives for not giving him a son — when science now knows it was all his fault. My middle-schoolers are always extremely upset about the lack of prominent women in ancient history.

"Red meat is not bad for you. Fuzzy, green meat is bad for you.” For all intents and purposes, I am a vegetarian and therefore believe red meat is bad for you but wholeheartedly concur that fuzzy green meat is way worse. So what does this have to do with computers? There are programs and corporate tactics that are bad for your computer and others that are not so bad. The trick is how to tell the difference!

I “was” a die-hard Republican, now I’m pondering what type of party would best represent my views. I’m also agnostic. I will never be a Democrat, nor a religious Bible thumper. But what I witnessed this week just blew my mind. What is with these people that we elect to represent us? They represent themselves as being common and ordinary citizens when running for office, but once in office it all falls apart. SB 1062! Why, oh why, couldn’t our elected representatives see the problems with this bill? I’m now convinced that we have idiots on both sides of the aisle representing mainstream America.

How many dogs are too many? When done properly, integrating a new dog into your current pack should be relatively easy. The keys to successful integration are control and harmony. The most successful integrations typically occur between the same breed and class of dog, but this certainly is not always the case. Be sure that whichever new dog you introduce has comparable energy-drive and size to your current dogs.
The hype and rhetoric on both sides of SB 1062 now awaiting action by Gov. Jan Brewer may disguise the fact the measure does far less than some have suggested.

To be perfectly upfront, I’ve never been a huge Kevin Costner fan. That’s not to say he hasn’t been good in a few movies such as “Field of Dreams.” He’s even directed some great movies … well one great movie at least. Then in the late ‘90s, Costner seemed to go on a major ego trip, constantly casting himself as mankind’s savior in movies like “Waterworld” and “The Postman.” Now he’s riding the comeback train with effective work in “Hatfields & McCoys” and “Man of Steel.” “3 Days to Kill” is unfortunately a step backwards for Costner. It won’t kill his career again, but it certainly won’t help it either.
Once upon a time, nearly everyone had to wait their turn.
