Confederate Flag

 Why is it so hard to decide what to do with the confederate flag?  I’ve heard White people say the flag is part of their heritage, it’s a historic symbol and their ancestors are linked to this flag, but is that something to be proud of? ...more

Paying Santa

I realized a little too late I should have done this piece much earlier in the Christmas season, but hopefully, not too late to be useful.  When my son was a babe, I was a single parent on welfare.  By the time he was a toddler I had a very good paying job, while I could provide more than the average single parent, I couldn’t provide as much as a two parent household....more

She's A Veteran, Too

Veteran's Day is when we take time to remember and honor our veterans who have sacrificed and served to protect the freedoms many of us take for granted. For most people, veterans are the men of our nation who have served and fought bravely. I want you to remember that men are not the only ones that have served. Women, like myself, also are veterans of our nation....more

Evolution or Creation

Evolution or creation?  These days it’s a battle between the two for some, but for me it’s easy -- I believe in both.  I believe Genesis 1:3 “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light” is consistent with the big bang.  Even more, I believe my experiences with the spiritual confirm the existence of God, or at the very least, a higher being -- to me anyway....more

Father's day ... & plagiarizing

Today I received an email from an aquaintance for father's day signed by some woman I've never heard of (as if she actually wrote it).  My problem with this is that I wrote it to my father 6 or 7 years ago and forwared to the males in my list several times since then.  While I don't have a problem with it being forwarded, I do have a problem with someone else plagerizing my work, copy written or not, good or bad, as if they actually wrote it.  Anywho, being that Sunday is Father's Day, this is part of what I wrote to my dad and altered to pass on to the rest of you: ...more

Sometimes I Feel Crazy

Why Lumosity?

I’ve had a few memory issues for various reasons, so I decided I needed to do something to strengthen my brain power.  Reports have stated that people that keep their minds active have fewer issues with memory, attention, problem solving and general productivity in their lives.  ...more
