IS BEING HUMANE ENOUGH?

The anger is everywhere.  Why?  I understand that our Protect and Serve departments need an overhaul, but it seems to be going far beyond that. Shouldn't simply being a decent human being toward another human being be the top priority? I have been around since 1959 and have seen a ton of protests and riots: … Continue reading IS BEING HUMANE ENOUGH?

Is The World Made Up Of Grape Jelly?

I remember that most things on the farm were done with lots of people.  This meant that those that help got to share.  Veggies were hot water bath canned, and fruits into preserves or jelly’s all with teams of people – except for the wild grapes.  That was my mom’s personal passion. Now, you have … Continue reading Is The World Made Up Of Grape Jelly?

SMART OR STRANGE AND HELPFUL STUFF?

When I was a kid, my mother was semi-obsessed with Fortune Tellers.  The possibility that another human could actually see or read into the future was exciting to her.  Needless to say, she made sure her daughters kept their minds open to the possibilities of the "what if's" that are out in the world. I … Continue reading SMART OR STRANGE AND HELPFUL STUFF?

SHORT, SIMPLE, AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN?

SHORT AND SIMPLY HELPFUL.

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.

MORE SHORT AND SUPPORTIVE STUFF.

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.

VIDEOS, MY LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP.

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.

EVERYTHINGS IS BEAUTIFUL.

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. It is spring in Colorado, and the flowers are starting to come out and play. The fruit … Continue reading EVERYTHINGS IS BEAUTIFUL.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING? My email joyously provides me with so many exciting things.  I read everything from my blogging friend's posts, to handyman tips, to local area sales (even though we are not leaving the house, I can still buy online should the need arise), so simple things like this: Word of the Day … Continue reading

I LEARNED SOMETHING NEW!

I am a learn-a-holic.  Can’t help myself so I guess it falls in the category of O.C.D.  My email inbox this morning brought me a new word: fusty adjective | FUSS-tee Definition 1 British : impaired by age or dampness : moldy 2 : saturated with dust and stale odors : musty 3 : rigidly … Continue reading I LEARNED SOMETHING NEW!
