I Want the Freedom to Be Stupid...

"Being stupid is its own reward." ~UnknownI'll admit, we do live in the country with the most freedoms today.  I try to be grateful for that, but it's tough.  I look back on our Constitution and it both saddens and angers me as to what has happened to that wonderful document over the years.  We've lost sight of what it was supposed to do and mean for the American people....more

You May Not Like this, But You Owe it to Yourself to Check it Out...

Anyone who knows me personally knows that I'm not a conspiracy theorist.  I have a pretty good head on my shoulders and I don't buy into a lot of those really "out there" theories and beliefs.  I am, however, open to self-education, new ideas and thoughts.  I am always willing to consider a possibility before discarding one....more

I agree. The world economy is so manipulated. There are puppetmasters. I need to check out the ...more

Finding my Voice...and I'm Frustrated, Scared and Mad

So, I kept putting off a new blog.  I started to let the thoughts of "no one really cares about what is going on in my life but me" stop me each time I had a new idea.  It's true.  I'm not that interesting.  My life probably mirrors many other people's lives out there, but I do have a couple of things I am passionate enough about to start bringing to light....more

I really appreciate that quote. I had not known about the Earth documentary! But I am not ...more

Literally- our well ran dry this week.  Thank goodness we have someone who was able to deliver a load of water by late evening!!!  I'm surprised by the lack of rain in our area since we usually don't have a problem with precipitation.  Yet if this is going to be the worst that happens for the rest of the year, I'll take it!!!...more

Money, Money, Money, Money....MONEY!! (Sing along...)

"All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy." ~ Spike MilliganEveryone I know is having a hard time in the "financial" department.  In fact, I just indulged in my weekly reading of my horoscope and it, once again, said I'll be feeling the strain of my budget....sigh....more

Some rantings and thoughts needed...

I've had a bee in my bonnet, so to speak, the last couple of weeks.   One of my daughter's best friends is my niece.  I love my niece, but the things she has been saying to my daughter has made me question what she is learning and who she is learning from?...more

Life is THROWING those Lemons this Year!!!

So, the computer has been a bit odd and life continues to be whipping lemons in my direction as fast as possible.  Luckily, my blessings far outweigh those lemons so I'm good.  Anyway, I really don't like lemonade.......more

Dealing with the Annoying....

Everyone has a job.  It's how they make ends meet, maintain a standard of living and have a bit of fun.  But that doesn't mean that I have to like every single job out there.I particularly dislike any type of sales person.  This includes car salespeople, telemarketers and anyone else who deliberately inserts their presence into my daily life....more
