Paul Ryan Needs Postcards

A note about Paul Ryan: Democratically elected U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan has turned off all of his public telephones and fax machines due to overwhelming protests in favor of Obamacare/ACA, Planned Parenthood, and Medicare, other issues such as tax returns, etc. He is also turning away voters delivering signed petitions. And he refuses to hold any town hall meetings.  Please mail postcards to his HOME address: Paul Ryan 700 St. Lawrence Ave. Janesville, WI 53545 Please paste and copy this info and share. Let’s see what 67 million cards in the driveway looks like.

US Election

I am still in shock. I can’t write about this yet. I need a couple days to process all the feelings (fear, sadness, dismay, horror). In the meantime, posts about Zanzibar will be coming. I’ll have my post-election write up sometime next week.  Now, I’m pouring myself a glass of whisky.

This U.S. election is very important this year. My fellow Americans abroad, please make sure to vote. Rules vary state by state, but it’s not that difficult. In fact, even if you no longer have residency in any state, you can still vote in the presidential election. I just learned of a website that very clearly guides you through the overseas voting process: Check it out. Also, you go to for more details state by state. It’s not too late to get the process going so that you are eligible to vote. Do it today if you’re not already set up for this. Your vote matters!  

Brief Hiatus

I haven’t posted in a while. There are a few things going on that are keeping me busy and away from writing posts. These things range from a sciatic flare up that, while on the mend, is keeping me from sitting for long periods of time to some life changes that, while positive, require a little more time from me as I make some transitions.  I’ll start to post again in a few weeks.
