This time, however, the clothing store may have taken things a bit too far by selling a vintage, blood-splattered Kent State University sweatshirt. Clearly making reference to the 1970 shootings at Kent State, in which four students protesting the Vietnam War were killed after 67 shots were fired in 13 seconds by the National Guard, the shirt is being called tasteless and classless.

Why does one person turn to religion when angst-filled, while another rejects the concept of a deity? Is traditional education a negative or positive influence in dealing with problems? What is the meaning of life? Can a person change from killer to saint? It probes the decisions to end one’s life, as well as human suffering.

       Last weekend we changed out our old light fixture in our dining room to a ceiling fan.  The room has three windows, but none of them open.  More than once, I've looked across the table at my son  and he's sweating!  Yes, we definitely needed a change!      We decided on the Hunter Fan Company's Claymore 54" ceiling fan with the light kit.  We ordered it on a Friday and it was here before the following weekend.  It took less than an hour from start to finish to take the old fixture down and install the new…
  • Make Your Own Bottle Label with a Drop Cloth

     My husband saved this neat scotch bottle for me.  I love the shape of it.     I started by soaking it in soapy water to remove the labels.     A quick trip to The Graphics Fairy to get this very fun graphic.    I needed a mirror image of it so it would come out correctly on the transfer paper.   I tried to print it off in color, but my printer wasn't cooperating.  Instead, I printed it in black and white on a piece of iron on transfer paper.       I cut the transfer…

         Last weekend there weren't a ton of garage sales.  I was heading to the grocery store and saw a sign for a sale at a warehouse.  Ok, I'll go in...  I was pleasantly surprised to see this clock on the wall for $2.  It wasn't running, but I was assured that it worked fine.  Yep, all it needed was a new battery.  I'm loving it in my dining room.  Several months ago I saw a post by one of my favorite sellers/shop owners--Barb from Treasures from the Heart.  When my son went to the University of Oregon, I was able to…

    Waiting For Next Year

    8:11 PM – I was about to suggest that if the Indians hadn’t given up on this season, neither should we. After all, I was just reminded of a recap I wrote last year that prematurely declared the Indians’ playoff hopes dead.  Anything can happen when you’ve got a team fighting for its life, and no one should know that better than we, especially after the 10-game winning streak that ended the 2013 season.  If the Indians haven’t given up on this season, neither should we. But they just put the lineups up and Chris Gimenez is playing first base so I guess you can do whatever you…

    We’ve already discussed Joe Banner’s Twitter account on these pages. Many still won’t even believe it’s the real deal, preferring to assume like many other accounts that @JoeBanner13 is a fake. Anyway, this morning Mr. Banner recounted what it was like one year ago today when he traded Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts. a year ago today spent much of the night on the phone, trying to finalize the Richardson deal. One of the hardest trades to finalize I did — Joe Banner (@JoeBanner13) September 18, 2014 I’ll never try and tell you that Joe Banner…
  • Generous Cavs Fans, LeBron’s Hairline, and Reading Recommendations… While We’re Waiting

    Good morning, Cleveland and Clevelandphiles! I hope all of you in The Land have a wonderful Thursday. So. You’re aware of Cavs Zine, yes? The Bible of Cavs Fandom? Of course, of course. No doubt you’ve heard that, for our fifth zine, we’re taking it up a notch and 3D printing championship rings. Hubris? Perhaps. But not for nothing, this is the first time we’ll have a Cavs Zine in which LeBron James is employed by the Cavaliers. We’re pretty excited and clearly have not taken any lessons from Cleveland sports history to heart. In order to pay for these rings…
  • Local radio, and Joe Banner love with Joe Lull – WFNY Podcast – 2014-09-17

    I’ve been a guest of Joe Lull’s (@lullonsports) on his radio progrum on 92.3 the Fan and for whatever reason I never asked him to come on the podcast. I sometimes feel like guys who talk sports for a living would be doing me a favor to come on the podcast. Anyway, that ended today as Joe came on to tell us a little about where the hell he came from and his perspective as a host here in local sports radio. We talked about how much national stories have been talked about here locally. We talked about Cleveland as a one-station sports talk town. We talked about the ill-fated DSN and…
  • Spencer Lanning drives a Toyota Tundra, appears on Men in Blazers

    Spencer Lanning has had an interesting couple of weeks on the football field with the Cleveland Browns. He found himself kicked in the face against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Then, he accidentally became a running back hurtling through the air and getting crushed by the New Orleans Saints’ defensive line on a botched extra point. Things are looking up for week three, as Lanning was an invited guest on the famous Men in Blazers podcast. Here are a few things we learned about Spencer Lanning in the interview (about 44 minutes in.) Spencer Lanning pulls over and parks to talk on the phone…
