It's back! ~ Saturday B.S. Roundup

After a lengthy hiatus, the B.S. Roundup is back! I don't know if I'll post every Saturday or not - depends on how much bullshit I encounter. I suspect there will be a lot since it's an election year, though. We'll see...

1. FEMA's First Concentration Camp Officially Opens in Arizona 

The story that never dies. FEMA camps. The Obama administration is going to round up conservatives and put them in concentration camps. Yes, people actually believe this and share posts like this one. The fact that it's a fake news source matters not in the least. 

2. Hillary Clinton vows to ban handguns 

Nope. The source? A fake quote generator. 

I was going to post more but David just called to tell me that the stars are beautiful and he was getting out our chairs so we could do some star gazing. That sounds like a great idea to me so I'm going to wrap this up and post it.

Coming Soon!

Yes, it's true. The B.S. Roundup will be returning! It's an election year and the fact-challenged posts are ramping up. Time for the Well-Groomed Hippie to sort through the b.s. (figuratively speaking!) and report the truth. 

Starting this coming Saturday I will once again begin posting a weekly fact-checking roundup. It's basically one-stop shopping for the truth. 

Be sure to follow the Well-Groomed Hippie on Facebook, too. AND...on Twitter. That's right, "the Hippie" is now on Twitter!

Music Monday ~ It's Gonna Be Me (David Bowie)

R.I.P. David Bowie. You'll be missed.

My son wrote a post about Bowie for my other blog, Life With Dee. It includes a 25-song playlist which is well worth checking out.

Music Monday ~ "Just Like You" (Keb' Mo')

I've been doing my "Music Monday" series on my new blog, Life With Dee. However, I think I will move it back here. I may start posting some other things here as well. With this being a presidential election year I may very well have something to say about all that. ;) I'm also considering starting up my Saturday B.S. Roundup posts again.

Temporary Hiatus

The Well-Groomed Hippie is taking a (hopefully) temporary break. On September 1st I launched my new site, Life With Dee. All content from my former blogs, Tea With Dee and Dee's Kitchen has been imported to the new site and I am now posting there every day. I also have some guest writers, including my son who is doing a weekly feature called "Timely Tunes". I am continuing to post "Music Monday" on the new site, as well.

I hope you will check out what I'm doing on Life With Dee. And if you miss my political commentary, be sure to follow The Well-Groomed Hippie page on Facebook.

Be back soon...

Music Monday ~ Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen) performed by Edgar Cruz

We spent the weekend at our favorite Oklahoma City hotel, The Skirvin. Just as we were finishing a late Sunday morning breakfast, a guitarist began setting up right next to our table:

He handed David a flyer listing his music and upcoming shows. Turns out this was Edgar Cruz, a well-known guitarist. Even though we had finished our breakfast we stayed long enough to enjoy several songs, including Bohemian Rhapsody: 

Pretty incredible, right? Once again we were in the right place at the right time.
