This week, the cousins discuss a 2020 reblog of LadyG’s post, “I’ve Noticed,” from July 2016.
BEWARE! In the 3rd audio (maybe it was the 2nd audio), LadyG gets SIDETRACKED when talking about “bad cops.” Of course this led her down a nearby “rabbit hole.” A relevant topic, but a “rabbit hole” nonetheless.
Psychopaths tend to be more manipulative, can be seen by others as more charming, lead a semblance of a normal life, and minimize risk in criminal activities. Sociopaths tend to be more erratic, rage-prone, and unable to lead as much of a normal life. When sociopaths engage in criminal activity, they tend to do so in a reckless manner without regard to consequences.
I know this lady who was raised in a very depraved environment. She, her mother and her siblings were treated as if they were the private property of her ‘father.’
This young lady had been worked, raped and nearly beaten to death. She was not allowed to go to school so she never learned to read.
Throughout her teen years, her ‘father,’ who had been her main abuser, gave his friends permission to violate her in any number of ways. As a result, she gave birth to six children; each with a different man. Her father sent several of the children away because he said that it wasn’t his responsibility to feed them.
Sadly, the young lady was never told of their whereabouts. Before long, she and her remaining children suffered the same fate.
This young lady, who had nothing but the clothes on her back and three children in tow, did…
Cooking metaphors for gardening? That’s so Lady G!
Bonus: Me watching for fireflies. Unfortunately, you might not be able to see them flash because they go so fast, but at least you can enjoy the sounds of the crickets chirping on a beautiful Southern night 🙂
Happy Father’s Day Daddy! Thanks for being a great DAD! Love you!

ANYONE who knows me knows that I used to joke about Facebook being THE DEVIL.
I joked that because I believed it encouraged stalking, lying, jealousy, narcissism and the like.
Don’t get me wrong, I know that Facebook is useful for people who want to keep in touch, raise awareness or distribute important information.
But, sometimes, I wonder if the bad outweighs the good.
When I was in Seattle visiting one of my oldest and dearest friends, we watched a documentary about how a certain political campaign, using a group called Cambridge Analytica, commandeered Facebook to target certain populations with false ads, confusion and other disinformation.
To sway them politically and influence voting.
The old scare the shit out of ’em, depress ’em, or piss ’em off strategy!
Sadly, it worked!
Quite a few folks fell prey because they believed what they read.
Hell, they made the ads look and sound convincing enough.
So, for instance, some ads were used to scare people to the polls and other ads were used to make people feel so discouraged and dismissed that they would opt not to vote—they weren’t even trying to get some of these folks to vote for someone else, they were, in fact, trying to get them not to vote at all.
And this was all served up on a nice platter of Facebook!
Currently, the informed public is fully aware of this fuckery, as evidenced by this testimony.
