9 Things You Absolutely Need To Know!

I like to get personal every once in a while on my blog.  In that spirit, here are 9 things you may not know about me: 1. My cat does not talk 2. I have recently been laundering money. So far I’m up to $0.03 and let me tell you, those three pennies are spotless. […]

Say What?

Terms of measurement of all things: time, distance, directions and pretty much everything else make communication easy.  Funny thing is, many of the terms of measurement I grew up hearing were MIA in the textbooks I studied in college.  I couldn’t find the exact definition in my science books for just how far “over yonder” […]

Let’s Just Skip That Part

Reading some things last night I realized a trend.  Not every time, but sometimes when I read, I lose interest in the details and just skip to the parts that tell me the gist of what is being said or what is going on. Why do I lose interest in things and skip them: They […]

Agree to Disagree

The daily prompt I found was this: Do you have a good friend or close relative with whom you disagree on a major issue (political, personal, cultural)? What’s the issue, and how do you make the relationship work? Many disagreements immediately sprang to mind: My only cat, Bella, and I disagree on a major issue.  I […]

A Bag and a Buck

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Cause, Meet Effect.” Found this little challenge and decided to take it up since the other thing I was going to write about today was much longer and a lot less interesting, not to mention introspective and thought provoking – which does not always make for a […]

Be Noticed

The ability to stand out is a gift.  Even greater is knowing you have the ability and natural tendency to stand out.  Neither, however, compares to the knowledge of knowing when to stand out and when to sit down, shut up and pray to your maker that no one takes notice of your presence.

Neat Freaks Make the World a Messier Place

I know, I know, there are a lot of you neatnics out there.  I am not among your ranks.  Don’t get me wrong, I like to have everything in its place – that place is just usually in whatever stack or under whatever stack or pushed beside whatever stack of other things where I left […]
