I am a college graduate from rural Western Pennsylvania who likes subjects ranging from history, old movies, culture, progressive politics, classic rock music, books, writing, and other high minded things. I’m an Irish Catholic girl who’s not afraid to speak her mind or march to the beat of her own drummer and doesn’t care what people think about her. Yet, I try to be as nice a girl as I can even though I don’t have a high tolerance for BS if you know what I mean.

  1. Yours is an interesting blog. I like seeing what famous people looked like when they were young. I found your blog from a search about President Harding’s illegitimate daughter, Ann. What keeps you blogging in this age of Facebook? I have found so many abandoned blogs on the Web, I am hesitant to make one of my own.

  2. Hi! I happen to be interested in a lot of the topics you mentioned (progressive politics, classic rock, old movies, sports, history, etc.) myself as well as of Irish descent. Just asking, what inspired you to start this blog to begin with and do you perhaps have some advice for those wishing to start their own blog who feel like they have something holding them back from doing it?

  3. regarding comment on “The Lone Girl in a Crowd” that says “While Jean Crain striven to be a serious actress …” your English is incorrect – it should be STROVE; there isn’t even such a word as striven; thank you

  4. I found your blog while researching the Seneca (Haudenosaunee) Nation. I linked to this blog from my FB page, because your research is outstanding. Thank you. I would be glad to give you full credit by name if you share it–maybe add your name to the comments below the post (3/31/17)? BTW–you’re Irish, you say? I visited Ireland last fall and wrote about here (not tooting my own horn, just thought you might be interested–nice pix, too, if I do say so myself):

  5. Hi Lone Girl,
    Do you sell your salt and pepper shakers? I’d love to have #40, the Shark and Dolphin ones.
    Thanks, Nurse Mary

  6. I found your blog googling towhee. Interesting thoughts. You definitely sound like a true western pa girl.
    Good luck with your endeavors.

  7. I actually came across your blog upon Googling the question, “Is it disrespectful to wear a (United States) flag lapel pin?”

    I still haven’t found information, anywhere, explaining why wearing a United States flag lapel pin is not disrespectful, while wearing a United States flag T-shirt is.

    That said, I have never seen such disrespectful treatment of the United States Flag, as I have seen since 9/11.

    Ironic, isn’t it?

    I love America, but I hate Americans—at least the smartphone-addicted, self-absorbed Americans of this diabolical Digital Age.

  8. Hi, I found you site googling to familiarize with lands of Westeros. The geography of Game of thrones # were just what I needed; So thanks for your beautiful summarizing, such revelation, bonus, I enjoyed your healthy amount of coolness.
