Should I… Be Controversial?

So, I took off a couple of mental health days from work. Mainly because the job is driving me insane. My sanity is tenuous as it is, and now I have to place outside influences to my thin veneer of saneness, and that just wasn't a good outcome. Happy birthday! Sanity is my gift to … Continue reading Should I… Be Controversial?

Down Time, Oney, and A Music Video

Target Vs. Walmart

Lately, I do a lot of shopping.  Meaning:  I drive from one store to another hoping to find bread, beans, disinfecting wipes (for basic household clean up), toilet paper, paper towels, multi-surface cleaner, and butter. These are all items that have been disappearing from store shelves, along with pasta. Pasta.  I already have pasta. Everyone … Continue reading Target Vs. Walmart

Fan Base – Part 1 – a Look at General Hospital

Are you a fan? Do you oscillate between fictional characters? Do you love one day, and hate another? Do you think you know more than that other guy?   Do you like this photo?  I do. I've decided to start writing about fandom.  It's something near and dear to my heart because I, like many … Continue reading Fan Base – Part 1 – a Look at General Hospital

Our Worth – Something to Talk About for Christmas

I've been watching news and pundits for awhile now.  I've been listening to politicians and I've even worked for politicians.  But that's not what I want to talk about.  Let's not talk politics...yet.  (Yes, there was a debate and I'll talk about that later.) What I overwhelmingly hear from all politicians and pundits is that … Continue reading Our Worth – Something to Talk About for Christmas

The Holiday with Kona Bean

My new granddaughter, Kona Bean, has already stolen mine and her uncle's heart.  She was an unexpected blessing. We almost sent her back.  Mike and Sarah almost sent her back. It was so soon after losing our little girl Fuzzy, and it was difficult because this new little puppy has special needs.  She was kept … Continue reading The Holiday with Kona Bean
