Everyday is something day.National Apple Pie day - May 13th.World Ocean Day - June 8th.National Coming Out day - October 11th.As a recognition of National Coming Out Day some of us set our Face Book status to "My family supports the LGBT community".I was proud that many members of my family set their status' this way and just as proud to see it almost fill an entire page of my time line.But I loved my dad's status most of all:...more

Pros and Cons

There is an initiative on the upcoming June 8 ballot calling for an Open Primary here in California. As it stands now, our Primaries are closed which means you can only vote for the party with which you are registered.  With an Open Primary the top two vote-gettters, regardless of party affiliation would run off in the general election in November....more

Delighted

My daughter cleaned the kitchen today!  SHe unloaded the dishwasher, loaded it back up and did it without any prompting from me! Of course the dishwasher is loaded totally wrong and I will redo it later today, and she didn't wipe down the counters or wash out the sink and there are still a couple of dirty pots on the stove.  But still!  She made the effort! ...more

Biopsy

I went in for my biopsy on Wednesday, I think I was more anxious about the needle than the actual reason for the test.  No matter the results, there is nothing I can do to change the out come.  It's not like I could have studied more, or even ate better or not smoked for 20 years.  Breast cancer has no sound rhyme or reason as of now. ...more

Special Election

I consider myself to be a firm believer and executer of the Democratic Way. I not only look at things from both sides (I can't help it even if I don't want to, I HAVE to), but sometimes I end up looking at them from as many sides as a 3 dimensional cube. It is amazing to see that quite a few things that so many things people think are very clear and even "black and white" are really in so many various shades of grey and have multiple sides, versions, outcomes that just get pushed by the wayside when you only think 1 dimensionally. ...more

A File Cabinet for your Brain

Someone asked on Twitter today if it was possible to unclutter your mind. I totally think it is. You have to be able to truly believe in the Serenity Prayer God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; ...more

Convicted

Many big names have been in the news for less than proper reasons.  Some celebraties, some politicians, some CEO's and the one thing they have in common is that they were tried and/or convicted of felonies.  Some even spent some jail time to atone for their actions.  However, upon their return to their respective workplaces they are for the most part re-welcomed back into their given society.  Even the football player who is currently in jail for dog fights and animal cruelty is negotiating his contract to return to the field while he is in prison. ...more

Politically Correct or Common Courtesy

A fellow Twitterer and I had a bit of a discussion the other day regarding the reasoning behind Spring Break now being referred to as Spring Break and no longer being called Easter Break. ...more

Stimulate Me Baby

About 10 months ago I ranted a bit about the so called stimulus package then President Bush threw together. I didn't then and still don't like the idea of just throwing money at the consumer's and expecting them to go on a spending spree. ...more

Trolls

Really, you think you have gotten a look into who I really am?  You have no clue who I am because you refuse to look past what you are willing to see.I never cursed your lord or anyones lord.  I merely expressed my true and honest feelings, if that bothers you I feel very sorry for you.  My blog is about me, not about making others happy with what I write or what I feel.  If my feelings are not up to your par, that is something that you will have to deal with, not me.When you showed your true colors about your racism and bigotry, ...more
