Survival of the Zaniest

At Today's headline on my favorite "news" blog is, paraphrased: In New Pole Trump Vs PalinMost Chose Suicide.

I must concur.

Reading this wonderful blog reminds me why Americans are so resilient. We can make light of the craziest things. Jay Leno had a bumper week with bin Laden taking hits. You can watch his episodes for free at

On more serious notes, gas prices are expected to decline. This is great news for us seasonal workers headed out to our new jobs. I'll be working and blogging from Grand Tetons National Park, where I'll be cooking for Vail Resorts at Jackson Lake Lodge. If you think you'd like a gig like this, or at some other cool spot, check out

I read an article about Not becoming a target for criminals in Psychology Today magazine. Much of the information I had already memorized and practice: stay alert, not distracted, out of dark places , don't flaunt wealth or talk to strangers, trust your instincts, comportment with purpose.
One thing I hadn't realized: women dressed too modestly, with high necklines, long sleeves and multiple layers actually look submissive. Hopefully, that's not me. My face and expression say much, but I'll keep that in mind. Most of the time I wear sleeveless tops while driving, with a light jacket for warmth.

Not much other news here. I'm supportive of women on adventures. Fear destroys dreams, and worry takes away pleasure.
Survival is a head game more than anything else. The right attitude has kept many children alive when strength alone was insufficient.
A petite confident woman is less likely to be a target of thieves than a large passive man.

  1. I think you've got a great job lined up. I have considered working for the Forest Service here in the mountains, but I don't think I want to be back in a situation where I have to take orders from someone.
    As for the issue of being "gotten", I think it's more a matter of using your head and being situationally aware than anything else. Sounds to me like you'll be fine.
