Jim and I were having a conversation, shortly before bed time, about him thinking I have too many things on my plate. I found it very interesting to wake up the next morning after having this dream… Having left some place to head to the USO, and passing barns with hanging beef, I realized I […]

Preserving Family History

While volunteering at the USO yesterday, I was chatting with a fellow who was sharing some stories of his antics as a teenager. This was back in the 40’s and 50’s. There were some very cool stories! I asked him if he had written any of this down somewhere and he responded that he had […]

An abundance of plants

Can you ever have an abundance of plants? My immediate answer is no. However, when you have limited space it seems the answer is yes. Am I the only one who hates to throw out a living plant? We have a house plant that I transplanted three years ago, into two pots. It recently needed […]

Easily Offended

Why is it that it seems people are more easily offended than they used to be? Could it be that social media has allowed people to express themselves more than necessary? It used to be if you wanted to recognize a special day, you sent someone a card. Now we take the easy way out […]

Race Relations

I recently saw a documentary about race relations. It was predominantly about the relationship between police officers and African-American men. Both groups acknowledged the problem and offered reasons that they exist, but few solutions were offered on how to change things for the better.

Responsibility

The Oxford Dictionary states this definition, among others: The state or fact of having a duty to deal with something or of having control over someone.
