Outlandish equals voice

I’m not interested in politics for politics sake, but I am concerned the directions politicians are trying to take this country. The biggest concern for me is that politicians seem to believe they have to say stupid outlandish things in order to gain the attention of the media. So do they really believe the stuff they say, even when confronted … Read More

Magic Cure – Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar

I needed a magic cure, and I needed it fast. My beloved female akita was exhibiting signs of a bladder infection. As any woman knows and I doubt there are many women, if any, over the age of 16 that haven’t experienced one, a bladder infection is just no fun. You feel like you have to urinate, but nothing comes … Read More

What Happened to Winter?

OK, I may be gloating a bit. Living in Las Vegas comes with some perks, like great mild winters (except for that 2 day stretch where we had a frost warning that killed one of my palm trees). So being outside in the backyard, watering the plants that aren’t on a drip system yet, and filling the pool, I realized … Read More

Something For Nothing?

I will be the first to admit that you don’t get what you don’t ask for, but if the answer is no, or a reasonable counter, its something you should be honorable about.

To Cook Or Not To Cook?

Yes, that is the question at Thanksgiving. I have two grown sons, both married and living in separate states.  Its not always convenient for them to come to see us or for us to choose who to spend the holidays with.  This is the first year that we’ll have to make this choice for Christmas as well because I also … Read More

My 12 Month Goals

Do you set goals?  I confess, I’m not good at writing down all I want to accomplish.  And yes, I know this is something people normally do on January 1st, or at least, sometime in December for the next year.  But all kinds of things are changing for me, and in order to not waste my time (I’m no spring … Read More

Are you where you want to be?

I just watched a video from a very smart marketer who coaches people (mostly women) on how to follow their dreams, build a business, and become what they want to be.
