What Millennials Aren’t Buying

It was fascinating to see an article about what Millennials just aren’t buying as much as previous generations have. From everything I have read it looks like they will take lead away from us Boomers when we were their age. They are all about changing the world and they should be. With global warming becoming a daily issue now and with pandemics likely to happen more frequently they need to take command. It’s their world that we are messing up.

I Don’t Want To Be Inconvenienced

This post is about the three pillars of keeping this pandemic in check. I am giving some the benefit of the doubt by saying there are still too many who don’t understand them and why they are necessary.

The Rock

To those who lived there between 1934 and 1963 Alcatraz, otherwise known as “The Rock”, was a brutal place. But now that it sits as a tourist attraction in the San Francisco bay it seems much more tame. And of course, with my abstraction here it is down right beautiful don’t you think?

Into The Looking Glass – 1950-1965

This is a personal perspective of the years between 1950 and 1965. This post is not meant to provide you with a high level view of the world during this period. Instead, it is from the viewpoint of the 4-year-old to a 18-year-old with some pretty significant Aspie traits, although I didn’t know it had that name. I was born in 1946, so I was … Continue reading Into The Looking Glass – 1950-1965

You Really Never Were…

There are many around today to hypocritically claim to be pro-life. But, to them that only meant unborn babies and maybe fellow tribe members. That soapbox is where I am standing for this post.

American Anthology… In To The Looking Glass At RJsCorner

I am going to spend Wednesday’s post in the coming weeks on one subject and that is to try to show where we as country have been and where we might be headed. The series will be titled Into The Looking Glass. Last weeks post about what someone who was born in 1900 encountered during her life. This Wednesday series will present my personal version … Continue reading American Anthology… In To The Looking Glass At RJsCorner

Small Town vs Metropolitan…Covid-19

This post continues from yesterday’s post about my recent experiences with shopping in my very small-town grocery versus going 20 miles to a larger metropolitan area. Covid-19 wise the difference is night vs day. I, like most in the world, am now hunkered down at the homestead. I only make a weekly trek to replenish the pantry shelves. I decided early on in the pandemic … Continue reading Small Town vs Metropolitan…Covid-19


    I ran across a rather startling picture at the Andrew Johnson Historic site in northern Tennessee a few years ago.  Before I talk about that, I was thoroughly amazed at how Johnson’s hometown managed to spin the story of him to make him appear to be a heroic figure which is very contrary to most historic opinion. I guess I have not come … Continue reading Slavery

So, You Think You Have It Rough??

I don’t think there is anyone on the planet who doesn’t know things have changed in the world recently. But compared to other generations this is a walk in the park. That is what this post is all about.

#AloneTogether – Spring Feeding Frenzy

(click on the picture to see a larger version)

With this post I am bringing up a new category here at RJsCorner entitled #AloneTogether. For the most part it will be pictures and short stories from around my homestead that I hope will brighten your day. I am also hoping that some of you will share your #AloneTogether stories with me and my readers. 🥴

Mississinewa 1812

You never hear very much about the War of 1812 but there was a major battle that took place in Indiana.  It was just south of Ft. Wayne.  The British along with their Indian allies fought an Ohio militia there. It happened after the Brits took over Forts at Mackinac, Dearborn and Detroit which was part of the Northwest Territory (Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, and … Continue reading Mississinewa 1812

We Are Not A Hopeless Victim…

In light of yesterdays post about the world having pity on us, I thought I had better put out an immediate post about how we can show the world that we are doing something about our condition. That is what this post is all about.

NYC 1999

I don’t think I have to tell you where the source for this abstract came from. It was taken in 1999 during our last visit there while residing in New Jersey. I made my last visit to the World Trade Center that day. We ate at Windows on the World restaurant at the top of one of the towers and watched helicopter fly around below … Continue reading NYC 1999

In The Pursuit Of Happiness…

The U.S. Declaration of Independence proclaims that we all have a right to the pursuit of happiness, whatever that means. But what is the historical pursuit of happiness was and what it is now are two quite different things. That is what this post is all about.

Let The Cities Die…

Thomas Jefferson was a big believer in country living. He just didn’t have much of anything good to say about the big city. This post will talk about the idea of eliminating “crowded urban slums” as Jefferson called them.

Losing Their Allure

There just seems to be a lot of doubt about the future of major metropolitan cities. That is understandable given that most of the pandemic deaths occur there. Will this result in more of a leveling of the population across America? That is what this post is all about.

I Know What I Am Going To Do With My Stimulus Check

I have been pondering about what is the best way to spend my stimulus check that is supposedly now in my account. I want to make sure that I use it to provide needed assistance to us as a Nation. I figured it out. It is going to the Biden campaign to make sure that the incompetent narcissist currently occupying the Oval Office sinks back … Continue reading I Know What I Am Going To Do With My Stimulus Check
