One of my very favorite My Odd Sock’s (I’m weird that way).  Please enjoy…and beware of eye strain. While many concern themselves with the amount of violence on television, movies and video games…..I say “Phooey!” The violence found in today’s media & popular culture is nothing when compared to the violence found on warning labels …

Know Your Knock-offs

Know Your Knock-offs

  You gotta love knock-off brands.  You can save money and you really don’t notice the difference in taste.  (Well, not too much.)

    By visiting My Odd Sock one can assume: A) you are extremely bored & B) you know “MS” stands for Multiple Sclerosis.   Though I can’t help you much with your boredom, I CAN show you that when one has the dreaded ick known as “MS,” those two letters mean so much more. …
