Who pays when there isn’t income for it?

The long sad tale of American children, parents, and grandparents.  Of course, everyone wants the best for their children.  The parents want to give their children the best, the parents become grandparents and want their grandchildren to have the best.  What happens if the parents don’t have the funds to provide the best for their…

Responsibility?

Every Man for Himself! Sigh, this seems to be the tendency in our culture these days. I’ve seen loving families reduced to bitter fighting when a loved one passes away.  This should be a time of gathering together to console and comfort each other, not coming to blows over who get Grandma’s jewelry or Dad’s…

Woodpecker Wanna-be

Woodpecker Wanna-Be Sitting on my porch, soaking up the sun, on St Patrick’s Day – ahhhhh.  Fully clothes, mind you, with my jeans & shirt sleeves hiked up a bit – but oh it felt so nice to soak up some light & warmth.  I know for those of you further south than me you’ve…

Holidays only for commercial purposes??

“Hallmark Holidays” Valentine’s Day has come and gone again this year. I was surprised at how many people said they did not like Valentine’s Day. That there shouldn’t be a day to celebrate love. That we should love every day, anyway. That it is just a holiday drummed up by retailers to sell cards, candy,…

Workin’ for the weekend

What’s The Draw of Alcohol? Let me just say, I am not out to entice anyone to drink, to tell you to stop drinking, or to judge anyone for their actions.  I am just throwin’ the topic out there for the heck of it – just as a discussion, so to speak. So why do…

Patience Is A Virtue

I have often said “Patience is a virtue… that I don’t possess.”  HAHA What is a virtue anyway?   Dictionary.com says  “–noun 1. moral excellence; goodness. 2. conformity of one’s life and conduct to moral and ethical principles; uprightness. 3. a good or admirable quality.” Let’s go with #3.  So, patience is a good or admirable quality. …

Is it possible you were mistaken?

First Impressions I attended a workshop recently, where total strangers were divided into groups and had to produce a product. Of course you get to chatting and get to know the people you are working with, if only a little. By the end of our project, we were all paying each other compliments on a…
