Prenez La Vie Comme Elle Vient~


     Yep, it's been quite a while since I've written.  At least, here on Sadie's Gathering.

     What better time, than now?

    All, is good for the most part.  Albeit a tad crazy.  

     With everything that's going on right now, since many do not know what to make of COVID-19; much less, being quarantined, out of work, schools closed, maintaining social distances; it's a whole new world. 

In a way, we're like Adam and Eve. 

On the bright side...

heard China's pollution may be down. 

And in Venice, (Italy) the water in their canals is apparently more clear, as opposed to cloudy and murky.

What We Can Learn From This Photo

I am still in awe over the photographer, Martin Le-May's ability to capture this image.

You learn after reading a bit that this wasn't a case of mismatched pals on a joy flight; the weasel was attacking the woodpecker, hoping for a meal.  The quoted wildlife expert explained, "the female weasel weighs less than a Mars Bar, but is ferocious as a lion."


I think there's a lot of inspiration to be taken, given the facts.

From the Woodpecker's perspective:

~Never underestimate the element of surprise.

~Know your assets; don't be afraid to use them.

~ Cute and cuddly (as is "pretty" or "handsome") are descriptions of the physical; not the character.

~When in doubt, go for the loop de loop.  Weasel vomit washes off.

~When you see a chance, take it. 

~Never give up; it's not over until it's over.

~Do whatever it takes to fly another day.

From the Weasel's perspective:

~Know what you want, and go after it.

~Hold onto your dreams.

To The Class of 2020!

       I wrote this in 1986 when I was graduating high school.  I don't think I finished it till the summer, so I don't think I had the opportunity to share it with many friends.  I loved high school, and I remember being sad, about leaving and nervous about starting the next chapter of life.  The uncertainty of what would happen when close friends who had seen me through so much, scattered.  I am blessed to be able to say that I am still in touch with many of them.
      As graduation rolls around again, I thought I would share it here on Sadie's.  Hope you enjoy.

Galactic Cap... Proving Once Again, You Can't Fix Stupid.

Again NSFW material; and puns and innuendos unavoidable.

     As my husband has claimed, I am obsessed with the Galactic Cap.  Even now, as there is a new, pandemic bringing a new reality to the world.  Please don't think I'm downplaying the COVID-19.

      It's just I can't get over the fact that there are those, going against everything that we know, and have learned in the last 100 years, spending money on such a product as this.
     While the majority of us are quarantined and dealing with the novelty of the new virus, and spending 24/7 in proximity of our loved ones, Mr. Powell is still attempting to sell a product that I believe would cause problems rather than solve them.  
     I'm working on a post I hope to finish by today, that I hope to be uplifting, but till then, read this to acknowledge how... nutty, some folks are, regardless.

  CLICK HERE  for the news - most from prior to 2020, but the page is copyrighted as of 2020, so Mr. Powell is still trying to sell his product, though he's not permitted to in the United States, thanks to the FDA.  
     Hopefully this brings a smile and a laugh.  Read the posts, and watch the videos from the links below of the site, to get the big picture.   No pun intended though unavoidable.

The Galactic Cap has gone from a replica of a Bandaid+Rubber Popper, 

to a rubber doll of an alien.

He even acknowledges that despite having a friend with HIV as his inspiration, he cannot guarantee that it will prevent STDs and HIV, AS IT DOES NOT COVER THE FULL PENIS! The following paragraph is from his Powell Development Group page.  

"The Galactic Cap is solely a pregnancy prevention product, and is primarily designed as condom for couples. We cannot guarantee that it prevents STDs and HIV as it does not cover the full penis. However, we feel that this revolutionary technology will help reduce three of the world’s most difficult problems: unplanned pregnancy, over-population, and help prevent STD/HIV infection."

Well it's the time of year to be Thankful.

Read This Before Your Next Restaurant Visit!

    With holidays right around the corner, I'm reposting, a post I wrote in 2013, NAT'L WAITERS & WAITRESSES DAY!
     The new, features a few more points, as well as more cartoons from my husband, Davis Jaye.  If you would like to contact him for a freelance job, click on his name, and you will be whisked away to his online portfolio.  It's extensive.  Also, check out his cartoon website, The Squirrel's Nest.

Time moves on but some things never change.

     Notably the need to make money, to PAY BILLS.  Especially while raising the next generation, paying for their food, clothes, activities, etc.  Working in restaurants and bars as well as other service jobs, are the way, many people these days, are attempting to do just that.  This is an attempt to shed some light on what may not be "the world's oldest profession"; but trust me when I say that by all accounts, it sure feels like a close relative at times.

Testicle Crushers UNITE!

This post was published two years ago.  Sadly, it's time to post again. 
Extreme? Hmmm...

If you don't know what stilettos have to do with crushing testicles, READ HERE.     Or HERE.

But really, it's not extreme when you consider, that in this day and age, the fact that 200 MILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS have endured the horrors of FEMALE GENITALIA MUTILATION WORLD WIDE. 

IN CASE YOU'RE NOT A MATH MAJOR... Given that our population is roughly 7.5 Billion, so roughly 3.75 billion of them are female...
