I have spent the better part of this year, so far, looking for my place. Not my home, I have that already. But my place in life. Where is my life going? What am I supposed to be doing, really? My kids are almost grown. We have worked hard to teach them right from wrong,…… Continue reading Finding My Place
I don’t know if it is just a reaction to sensory overload or really wanting to be disconnected, but I find myself turning off electronic devices more and more. Hell, in the last ten years, I’ve quit two jobs that required me to be connected nearly every waking minute of the day. I’ve been thinking…… Continue reading Simplified Connections
I’m talking about Facebook. In the beginning, it was cool. It was going to be this great way to keep in touch and keep up with my family back home in Virginia. It was going to help me keep in touch with my friends from high school and life in general. I’ve had Facebook a…… Continue reading Should I stay or should I go now?

Still thou art blest, compar’d wi’ me The present only toucheth thee. – Robert Burns, To A Mouse, On Turning Her Up…… Continue reading Best laid plans of mice….
I stopped smoking cigarettes, again. If you’ve ever tried to quit smoking, you know that you are supposed to replace your smoking habit with another habit. Well, I did. I replaced it with vaping. Vaping, for those of you who are unfamiliar, is the act of using a personal vaporizer to get your nicotine fix.…… Continue reading Marilyn Monroe & Vaping
We had a disastrous event a few weeks ago while cleaning the aquarium and all the fish except one went to that Great Aquarium in the Sky. The big black prehistoric plecostomas survived the catastrophe unscathed. These are the newest inhabitants of our small ecosystem. They are supposed to be mild mannered mollies(yellow & red…… Continue reading New fish & Pinterest nail fails

Every big city has one or three of these. A place similar to DB’s Sports Bar. They have good bar food and beer served by girls who look and dress like this…. My husband and his coworkers go there for lunch sometimes. I like going there for different reasons. They have awesome chef salads, chopped…… Continue reading Brotherhood of T&A While Working Union
