Who are we looking up to?

I may have written about this before, but with the recent headline I saw about Lady Gaga smoking pot on stage – well, frankly – I was surprised.  I didn’t read the article, but isn’t pot illegal (except for maybe medicinal reasons in some states)?  How can a celebrity (or anyone, for that matter) do […]

I’m seeing a lot about the USO lately

I’m surprised at the number of people who have never heard of the USO!  I guess being an Army BRAT I was always familiar with it.  In case you don’t know, the United Service Organization exists to support our military and their families.  Here is the “official” link, http://www.uso.org/. Lately, here in NC, the USO […]

Backwards Thinking

Wednesday morning, 9:30ish, I was in a hurry to get out the door.  I had just emptied the water pitcher and the filter needed to be replaced.  No time like the present.  It will only take a minute.  A couple of minutes later, after many attempts to put the lid back on the pitcher (with […]

What’s your major?

It’s that time of year again.  Colleges have started.   Some high schools have started, or will be starting soon.  A friend of mine (Charles Gupton, http://charlesgupton.com ) posted the following article on his Facebook page and I thought it was important information and relevant to many of the people I know, so I am posting it […]

I try to stay away from politics

This is a hot topic this year and it leads to some heated discussions.  Even trying to remain (publicly) neutral isn’t safe, as someone with a strong opinion may take the neutral position as disagreeing with them.  I do have my thoughts on the topic and some people know them, but I try to stay […]

Your cheatin’ heart (PG13)

I read an interesting FB post link yesterday.  I think it was titled, “Why married men don’t cheat” or some such thing.  I skimmed it, as Jim and I discuss this every now and again, when we hear about some celebrity affair/divorce.  I just don’t understand what people don’t get – once you’re committed to […]

Why is it that some people don’t seem to understand responsible financial management?!

For a while there was a high school math class, Personal Finance, that actually showed you how to manage your money.  Things like how to keep a checkbook, pay your bills, what bills you should have, the estimated cost of things, SAVING money, budgeting, credit cards, are all important things.  Is this not offered anymore?  […]

Why are you yelling?

Have you noticed that some people are just yellers?  Not necessarily all the time, mostly when they get perturbed. I was in the car with my 4yr old granddaughter the other day and we were talking about how bossy people don’t have a lot of friends.  She was telling me she had to yell at […]

Am I being Cautious or Paranoid?

I love being outside and doing yard work.  I have planted (with help from my dad) most of the landscaping at most of the houses we’ve lived in.  I live to be outside – on a warm sunny day. Some of you have heard that I stepped in two hornet’s nests in two weeks, and […]

The idea being, […]
