I’m more inclined to read “year in review posts” than to write them, and this year is no different from all the rest in that regard. A “year in review” post from me would go on and on, and who has time for that – especially on New Year’s Eve? Wanted to wish all of […]

Hey gang! Hope everyone is enjoying your Thanksgiving morning so far. Yours truly woke up with a sore throat – on THANKSGIVING DAY. Sigh. I have been coughing and sneezing this week but it’s been a dry cough and the sneezing hasn’t felt like anything to do with congestion, so I didn’t think too much […]


Is chivalry dead? No, but …

… there are times I’d love to jerk a flippin’ knot in some people! I am flat-out worn out tonight. As I noted over the weekend, I was wrapped up in rearranging/reorganizing my home office for a good bit of Saturday and Sunday. It had gotten too cramped and a couple of pieces of storage […]

And the bigger the better. Oh – did I mention I was talking about flat panel televisions? What did you think I was talking about? I’m in the middle of taking a brief break from the work I brought home with me to brag – sorta – about the fact that I’m finally “getting with […]

This has been one of those weeks where I’ve had a lot of trouble getting to sleep, and you know how you feel when you don’t get enough rest: tired, sluggish, irritable – not at your best. You sure don’t want to get up in the morning. Add to that, the after-effects of suffering from […]


When wanting to be accepted becomes overwhelming

Tuesday morning, I woke up, got ready for work, and quickly logged online to check my Newsgator feeds before leaving, as I always do, and read this post from Dan Collins at Protein Wisdom, who linked up to commentary by Ace of Spades blogger Jack M. on a disturbing story about a 13 y/o girl […]
