Making a mistake once can count as a lesson learned the first time around. Making the same mistake over and over again is simply a mistake.
When we are in learning mode, we have to make decisions to see where it takes us. We may fall onto the wrong road and… Read full post »
For some reason, each time I read something from a newspaper or watch the news, I get this sinking feeling that we humans are hanging by a thread. Not only hanging by a thread, but off a cliff. Everywhere you turn there is doom. Our economy is so bad I still… Read full post »
The movie 'Groundhog Day' has been presenting itself in my mind for the last few days and I wonder if it's because I'm working out my resolutions. For some reason I keep hearing my inner self say, 'don't do the same thing over and over again.'
Now that we are gliding… Read full post »
Why do we rely on doctors for cures? Medicine these days are prone to kill you because unlike your grandmother’s remedy to the common cold, the medication on our shelves are filled with more chemicals than they are of natural substance.
Why do we rely on lawyers for justice? Somehow convicts… Read full post »
Which category do you fall under?
- The person living within their means
- The person living within someone else’s means
- The person living with no idea of the meaning of ‘within their means’
- The person playing with someone else’s means
If I sent out a survey, I would love… Read full post »
Recently I lost a friend of mine to breast cancer. Now, I say friend, but we haven't talked in the last three years. We went to high school together and spent most of our adult life having a love/hate friendship. Hard to explain but I know if she were here right… Read full post »
So our fellow writer, Mark Trost wrote this piece and as instructed, I have cut and pasted it to make it my own (thanks Mark!). He says, 'Last year I wrote this and I posted it on Facebook. I had a tremendous response. It even went sort of viral. I… Read full post »
If you have been following my blog you will notice I am using song titles to make a point. I can't help it because each time I hear a song I wonder if people get the message. Yes, the beat might be good but do we honestly listen to the lyrics?… Read full post »
Fabrics come in many colors, patterns and textures, as do friends. You have the bright shining silky types, the cotton-that-lasts-a-lifetime types and the flaky polyester tacky types. Friendship can be short lived or everlasting.
Some trends and friends stick around through thick and thin while… Read full post »
While listening to the radio I heard one of my favorite all time songs, 'Not Ready to Make Nice' by the Dixie Chicks.
I can remember the first time I heard this song. I reacted like a 5 year old who just got smacked by their parent. I cried and cried until… Read full post »
Why do people allow themselves to feel they need to adapt to a negative situation when they are receiving or giving off negative attention?
I see it all the time….
Girl likes boy, boy has no idea because he's from a different planet. She will throw herself at him and give… Read full post »
Give me a break, if I hear another automated phone call from my bank informing me that my bank card has been compromised, I'm liable to combust into flames.
Seriously, is anyone fixing this? My card was compromised last week and my husband’s card was nicked today. When we went to… Read full post »
Rogers Cable came out with a commercial promoting family connection. The scene shows two neighbors talking in the driveway. In the background you’ll see two teens, one raking leaves and the other washing a car while texting or talking on their cell phones. While the men talk, one tells the othe… Read full post »
If you watch the commercial on depression enough times within the span of watching Two and a Half Men, you start to believe you are depressed. (Here’s the website but I can’t find the commercial, sorry! - depressionhurts.ca)
Don't get me wrong, but if we are bombarded with ads that p… Read full post »
Why is it so hard to just say SORRY?
Our past sure has a way of creeping into our present life on a regular basis. It doesn't matter how long ago it was, a song or something someone said can bring you back to that moment and make you relive it.… Read full post »
Before our next generation develops an eye in the middle of their head with thumbs attached to their arms, can someone tell them to slow down?
Is it just me or is the world spinning in too many directions? Why am I feeling forced to accept the new way? While I… Read full post »
A little dose of this pie can make any man, woman or child change their bad habits. I don't care who you are, if you have a bad attitude and it needs adjusting, come here so I can feed you some pie by hand. I'll make sure with every gulp that… Read full post »
I believe the word 'quality' has escaped our vocabulary? Seems we are more focused on pumping out quantities instead of creating something that has any worth. It doesn’t matter if its clothing, a car, a house or any store item that is made in mass. You can even throw in the quality… Read full post »
Let me introduce you to a lady who had a great influence on many of my family relatives, especially the women. We were brought up surrounded by some very strong ladies, but this one was the head of the table. My Nona on my mom's side.
One of the things she… Read full post »
Ever hit rock bottom or the end of the road? Ever felt like your world was spinning out of control?
What you are going through is not original, it happens to the most of us. People don't talk about it because they don't want to be judged or criticized. They would rather… Read full post »
With the many different ways we cut up a word it doesn’t surprise me that we are lost in the translation. We have multiple definitions for a word such as:
1. A brief record, especially one written down to aid the memory: took notes in class.
2. A brief informal… Read full post »
What’s the difference between being a player or a cougar? Aren't they playing the same game? Some might view a player as sexy, mysterious and charming yet when they go to describe a cougar they are just sex craved older women looking for young meat. Aren’t they playing the same game?… Read full post »
I received this note from a friend (thanks LF). If you believe in your rights in this country, I'd suggest you read this and pass it on. I'm almost tempted to move to Australia, main reason would be to be closer to my cousins, but I really like what Mr. Rudd is… Read full post »
Ladies, we all know what PMS is like, right? Well, I'm coming to think that either Mother Nature is PMSing really bad or having fits of menopause. We can laugh at the visuals, but this isn't funny. If we take a look at our world, we should instantly realize that there… Read full post »
