About Me

My husband and I recently moved from Florida to Vermont and then to the “beautiful” foothills of the Adirondack mountains – a land that truly is “forgotten by time”. This blog contains my own personal rantings about our new neighbors, the area, our ongoing remodeling project, our own particular quirks and peccadillos and the general attitude and ambience of the surroundings we find ourselves in.

 If you’d like to e-mail me – or send along “Stupidity in the News” articles, advertisements, etc. Or, if you’d like to make a comment but are too shy to leave one in the forum, but are brave enough to email one,  please feel free to do so. My e-mail address is

    Screw it. I give up.

  5. No! Don’t give up I got there – and she really could be my sister, couldn’t she? No, wait, my sister is a dope that’s on Welfare.

    Well, she could be my sister from my real family – the one I was switched at birth from.

    Awesome job on the Phil Spector trial testimony!

  9. DAMN! I have bookmarked your blog. That Spector testimony thumbnail was spot on and fabulous. You have gifts, girl, and I for one wish to enjoy your writings on any subject you choose to elucidate.

    You are a very gifted writter and I hope you will publish a book, if you do, I will read it, that’s for sure.

    Thanks Kim!

    Ditto and Ditto–as a editor and writer, I am amazed by your word dexterity and ability to cut right to the heart of a myriad of subjects. Well done and I’m now a reader and a fan.

    I ran across your blog while searching the Spector trial. Your witty (and insightful)coverage is outstanding! Your Blog is now one of my favorites everyday! You have such an excellent style of writing!

    To the extremely gifted writer of “The Darwin Exception”:
    You have a great talent and I am enjoying reading your posts on the Spector trial. I find a few words that are a bit salty for this old lady……I am a great grandmother. Your writings certainly stand alone, and above other commentaries, and would do so without the salty words.

    What a gift you have – thanks for sharing it and thanks for making me laugh!

    I love the heading/title… and had a hearty guffaw as i read thru… thanks …
    as for the idiots that got thru… far too many got thru and Darwin’s theory is beginning to stink. Or ??? … are idiots more fitter?? And that makes a light bulb glow for me… rather brightly too…
    Those perfect bods we see jogging around and grabbing so much attention,can barely get past the “Duh? Duh!” stage of a conversation more often than not. Quite idiotic … Idiot as in equal to a single-digit IQ.
    So… ‘cheers’ to the few exceptions (present company included) that prove the rule…

    Pamrajan, as it says in Proverbs, “A beautiful woman without intelligence is like a gold ring in a pig’s snout.” 🙂

    And kudos to you, dear Kim, for keeping the swine in their pens, and allowing us to wield our pens together (or type, anyway)! When did the exercise of critical intelligence transmute into a hostile act?
    Please stay “Our Bitch Kim” forever, even through your inevitable fame. (Remember when Star Jones was an earnest fat black woman young attorney?)

    kim – your blog has been so valuable esp regarding spector trial – it is so thorough and i wait for it daily so i can find out what really happened. too many things get misunderstood by posters on ctv and i refer back to your blog for info on past hearing dates. I lknow its alot of work but it is really appreciated

  25. Kim (Canada) said

    Thought I’d share in sending out my “pat on the back” to you…
    Awesome info – Fantastic writings!

    You a “Supa-star” in the WWW!

    Cheers and Chuckles,

    Kim, I have been reading your blog thru out the spector trial and you are truly a awesome write like I talk…Geez I am a bartender and your words are my I tell my friends if you don’t like my talk move on..This is the way I am..
    Your writing is the only one I have found that keeps me doubled up. You are hilarious. Keep up your great writings.

    Kim on your illness have you ever looked into alternative medicine. It does work, in your case I am not sure but I would investigate. I will send my guardian angel “Gretchen” to watch over you she has strong powers she helped me thru my cancer.

    Let the supreme being watch over you who ever the hell that is, I beleive in spirits, but I am indian what can I say.
    Take care Kim c you at spectors next trial.

    Dear Kim,

    As huge fans – so happy to see you are no longer linking to a certain blog. Your wit, charm and talent is extraordinaire and clearly should not be muddied by association.


  28. Kay said

    Hope you are feeling okay. Concerns mount when you don’t blog for a few days. I look forward to your stories and comments. The most important thing is to take care of yourself. Prayers for you.
