My sister and I were in a mood again this morning. We always put on some silly movie we have and laugh or sing along with it. This mornings selection is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The movie starts out with a couple of my favorite songs: Brandy by the Looking Glass and Mr. … Continue reading DO YOU THINK IT’S FAIR?
This year started with contemplation – again! It seems like I always start with that and end up with a mess and more questions than answers. Since 2020 was so horrific in so many ways, and since it also felt like it produced more angry/hateful feelings than average, my contemplation revolved around happiness.

WRITE IT DOWN – everywhere I go! Sticky notes all over the place (note: did NOT say house as they are in my car as well-eek), note pads and pen or pencil in almost every room, in my vehicle, and in my purse – never leave home without it. I recently added a voice recorder … Continue reading SHORT AND SIMPLY HELPFUL.
This one is because most all of us are staying home and starting to get really bored. You may also have been among the panicked and ran out to buy a ton of stuff (needing it or not) in preparation of the virus “stay at home” order. Now what? You may have grabbed things that … Continue reading MORE SHORT AND SUPPORTIVE STUFF.
I love movies. I hate ads. There should be a time and a place for everything. I don't think there is anymore, especially when it comes to video types of information. I understand that the reason for advertising on TV, radio, and the internet are so that the station or website can afford to run. … Continue reading VIDEOS, MY LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP.
No, I am not talking about flowers or the song by Ray Stevens (you can view it here), I am just taking a moment out of my crazy day/life to see what is right in front of me.
