Google’s Gemini AI: “He’s As Bad As Hitler!”

No, not Trump, Elon Musk. Google's Gemini AI: "Wow, tough question. Too close to call." It’s enough to exhaust anyone.

Conflating Hitler with Elon Musk: Gemini AI has clearly been immersed in the American public school system’s total immersion indoctrination program.

As I said, exhausting.

Living In Evil Times Doing The Best We Can

biden and the light bulb

People have argued for years that it doesn’t make any difference who you vote for. Even putting the stolen election aside, the blithering, blathering – literally -  out of touch dementia patient in office proves the premise. Staffed by an army of mostly incompetent functionaries the business of government continues on. not missing a beat. So yes, I’m finally ready to concede that maybe it doesn’t make any difference. Ugg.

We truly do live in evil times.

So enjoy the Super Bowl if you’re so inclined; a respite from reality won’t hurt and might help.

I thank everyone for your prayers, my anemia is beginning to abate. My hemoglobin is climbing, although still below normal it’s going in the right direction. Feeling strong enough to start physical therapy again this week as balance/walking remains a concern. Last brain MRI questionable so follow up in March. The fight continues.

May you all have a blessed, peaceful week.

Consider The Taco


Another day, another argument.

tacos v burritos

Remember when Mexican food was a taco?


And a taco was simple? Crunchy shell, taco meat, cheese, lettuce, bam, you’re done. Now you have to choose between tacos and burritos. And if you choose tacos you have to pick your wrapper: hard or soft. Then there’s the filling for both: everything from chicken, shrimp, fish, barbacoa, carne asada to grasshoppers. And the topping choices are seemingly endless as well. I ordered a burrito online the other day and needed a nap before I could eat it.

So, it’s taco Tuesday: everybody be careful out there and try to keep things in perspective.

“Butterflies Are Free To Fly”

You can pick up factoids in the strangest places. For example, I saw this on my box of Kleenex this morning:

“Butterfly wings are transparent. The colors you see as a butterfly flits across the yard are actually the reflection of various colors through their scales.”

Sometimes it is hard to believe in God. Other times it is hard NOT to believe in God.

Taco Tuesday The Day After The Iowa Caucuses

Some people think Taco Tuesday started as cultural appropriation. Actually it began as part of the Body Positivity movement:

Enjoy it while you can as you won’t be we allowed to celebrate Taco Tuesdays come February. It’s Black History Month and diluting the victimhood will not be allowed.  You’ve been warned so be prepared.


Oh, and that caucus yesterday? Not really a contest. So enjoy your tacos steer clear of emergencies and dream of making America Great Again.

Too Soon?

Is it too soon to dream of Spring?

And spring flowers?

I think not.

Sorry, still too weary to do a real post. No wonder they call anemia pernicious.
