"You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life."

-Steve Jobs


Redhead Ranting is the the rantings of a frazzled, twice divorced mother of two who freelances and cares for two stupid dogs while writing her memoir against incredible and unbelievable odds (but will make a wonderful book one day).

Something goes here

But I’m not really sure what it should be. However, I need to figure out the size of the column so everything lines up. It’s late, I’m kinda tired and hopefully by tomorrow I will have figured it out.

Conflicting Bumper Stickers

Posted by on Jul 10, 2014 | 0 comments

I was in my early 40s when I got my first tattoo. I would have gotten one a lot sooner but I just couldn’t figure out with what image I wanted to permanently disfigure my body. I had the same trouble when it came to putting a bumper sticker on my car. I always wanted to but was too afraid to put my strongly held beliefs out there for ridicule and judgment. And then I bought a Mac. It came with two apple logos that had been stuffed into a drawer in my desk for a while. I couldn’t throw them away because they were perfectly good. The cat got one of them and the other went on the...

Where are You Going This Summer?

Posted by on Jun 1, 2014 | 1 comment

Hard to believe it’s already summer especially since it snowed a fair amount just a few weeks ago. But, Grand Old Day is today and that means summer has officially begun. Last summer the daughter and I drove to Mount Rushmore. It was a hell of a trip taken during the hottest days of the summer. Don’t let South Dakota fool  you. South Dakota might not be filled with sand and it probably gets some rain but there are no trees so all you get is the sun beating down on you all day long. It’s like a green desert (I’m aware that doesn’t make any sense). I actually...

What to do in Case of a Zombie Apocalypse?

Daryl is someone I’d want as a friend as is Carol, Michonne and Maggie. I like to think I could survive if the world went to hell and the undead walked the earth.

Money becomes irrelevant and the only thing of value is your survival...

Agent Feather Email Phishing Scam

Posted by on May 7, 2014 | 0 comments

What is the Agent Feather email? Is the Agent Feather email a virus or phishing email? In the past month I’ve been in a bit of a legal battle with my ex husband. One of these days, if I ever blog again I’ll tell you all about it. It’s actually really funny. Anyway, because of this animosity between us I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that he was saying disparaging things about me on the internet. Well, maybe a little surprised since actually writing out words seems a little out of his skill set. So, when I opened this Agent Feather email I was at first a little...
