Melissa Harris-Perry’s Excellent Rant: I’m Sick of the Idea That Being Wealthy Is Risky.

Pull Up a Chair: How Does Your Garden Grow?

It’s the middle of August, and my veggie garden is going crazy. After a slow starting summer, it’s gotten sufficiently hot here for several weeks so that the plants have really kicked in the juice, if you know what I mean.

Pull Up a Chair: Giving You the Best That I’ve Got

I’m going to riff on Margaret’s theme from last week’s PUAC about how we treat each other. Ya got yer golden rule, aka the Ethics of Reciprocity, which may not speak to everyone’s specific or general belief system. But, did you know that most faith systems have a version of Do unto others?

Pull Up a Chair: Beach City, Here We Come.

Since it’s SumSumSummertime, I thought we could talk about the beach. Doesn’t have to be the Kona Coast in Hawaii, but that IS nice. (And, yes, Mr. Tuttle, Hilo is fabulous too.)

Pull Up a Chair

I heard on the news that an increasing percentage of young adults are living with their parents. I know that there are many Firedoglakers who are taking care of their parents, whether in the same house or not, it’s still a new and different responsibility. Without going political on the subject, we are being faced with changes that some have said we need to face with austerity. But, I want to think of this as a chance to face our future with bigger hearts. I know that there are many reading this who have put time, money and effort into the Occupy Events. I know that there are people who face the future by rescuing animals and adopting them. They are sharing their love with those who need it.

I talked to a few friends and asked them what they thought about happiness, if I were to quote them, what would they say?
