  • What A Week!

    I have had one crazy week. There has been some good things happen, but there has been some totally frustrating things. Let’s start with the frustration. Twice this week the power has gone out, once while I was trying to write a post. When the power went out it has done something to my wi-fi […]

  • Book Review – Managing the Depression Puzzle

    For the past several days I spent the better part of them reading the book, “Managing the Depression Puzzle” written by Ashley L. Peterson(blog: www.mentalhealthathome.org).

  • A Word of Caution

    Comment Caution The other day I had to do something that I have never done before. I had to delete a comment from a person.

  • The Gang is All Here

    “The mob believes everything it is told, provided only that it be repeated over and over. Provided too that its passions, hatreds, fears are catered to. Nor need one try to stay within the limits of plausibility: on the contrary, the grosser, the bigger, the cruder the lie, the more readily is it believed and […]

  • Indecision, Indecision, Indecision

    I don’t know how many times this week that I hit the “delete” instead of the “publish”. I would start to write and then proof-read and decided that I was sounding too dire, and maybe, too dark. So, this may come across as rambling.

  • Celebrating Black History Month

  • Attitude or Attitude?

  • Diabetic Lemon Filling- Pie or Tarts

    This filling has become one of my favorites. I am not diabetic, but I love the taste. Amazingly it does not shrink away from the sides of the crust. Give it a try the next time you make a lemon pie or some tarts. 1 1/2 cups of Splenda No Calorie Sweetner , Granulated 1/4 […]

  • 2021 – My Thoughts About It

    I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something. Neil Gaiman I am not going to […]

  • Family?

The ones that would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what.” Source: Shutterfly What Is Family? Merriam Webster Dictionary – 1b also; any of various […]

  • Hard Candy Christmas

  • The Toughest Holiday Yet!

    “No amount of me trying to explain myself was doing any good. I didn’t even know what was going on inside of me, so how could I have explained it to them?”― Sierra D. Waters, Debbie. Back in the early nineties I was working in a fast food chain as a morning manager. I was going through […]

  • Lessons Learned In 2020

    “We stand on the edge of the abyss, across whose unknowable face we paint meaning so as not to see into it. It is always there. But we’re here too, and we are no less real than the abyss. We are no less meaningful for being transient creatures caught up in something too big for […]
