We are winding down our 50 state tour.  This week is Missouri, next is Wyoming, then Michigan and Arizona and finally New York.  Missouri smack in the middle of the continental 50 comes and goes in the news.  One writer, MacKinley Kantor, wrote a book on the state’s past called “Missouri Bittersweet” that is part travelogue and part history tracing the Show Me’s cultural history … Continue reading This week 12/3-12/9 in Kansas City Missouri

This week in Memphis, 11/25-12/01 2018


Pelosi is still on the ropes and the opposition is TBA.  Across the proverbial pond, Ms. May may not be as lucky for her Party controls her life line.  The Ascendant this week is  27 Gemini,  has a nice springtime theme of seven blue birds moving to another tree and transition is the byword.  Maybe this is a bad harbinger for the ladies in waiting?  … Continue reading This week in Memphis, 11/25-12/01 2018
