The ongoing Political Musings of a former (now Stray) Yellar Dawg Dem.
This is a Feminist Blog, in the tradition of Susan B. Anthony.
"Just Tell Them...
I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

I-phone Beats Out Blackberry, Twitter Account Goes Active: Minutia Alert!
I was strong armed into this, actually. By the Apple-happy kids in my family.
They all wanted unlimited minutes and text messages. So they could talk to their far off, west coast, brother. Imagine that!
Long and short of it... we needed a national cell phone provider. AT&T, rather than Cincinnati Bell. DH was cool with i-phone cuz he is an engineer who wrote early software for Windows and figures there must be something he can write for i-phone. Royalties.
Now me, I was holding out for a Blackberry Palm. Cuz I am old and Apple irks me. Haha. But... then AT&T had this fabulous deal on i-phones. And the salesman had a smoothe, sexy, East African accent. He offered me a deal: try the i-phone for thirty days and, if not sold on it, return for a Blackberry.
OMG. This is terrible. I can check my e-mail anywhere. Send photos in a flash. Text. Listen to Pam Tillis. And locate the nearest Starbucks, anywhere in the frickin world!
Plus... I have Twitter already and now I am going active. Teehee.
If you are into twitter, and desire to know minutia about my daily life.... log in and add me as a friend.
In "real life" Dawg is a mom, a nurse, a pet rescuer and a tireless advocate for animal rights.
Dawg is happily married for thirty years and has raised three awesome children. She holds an advanced degree in Family Science, wherein her research was focused on women's support circles during parturition. Her dedication to Women's Rights is directly affected by her belief that motherhood should not be a sentence to isolation and disenfranchisement.
Dawg is on hiatus from political bloggery d/t the intense demands of her engagement in the No Kill movement at this time. However, she remains influenced by PUMA politics and reads the blogs of her fellow PUMAs (at right) regularly.
Thanks for the Visit, all you Stray Dogs and PUMAs!
"Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave.
