- In this bio I am going to focus on what brings me joy and not on work related stuff. I am the mother of two wonderful boys that are about 6 inches taller than their father:-) Over the years I have rescued numerous dogs and cats. I had to stop volunteering at my rescue organization because I kept keeping all the animals. I am a jewelry hobbyist and hope to one day produce exhibition quality work. I recently received notice that my jewelry will appear in a Lark Book and Art Jewelry Magazine HOORAY. In starting my Art Jewelry Online business I am humbled by all of the support I have received from the artistic community and non-profit agencies that assist us. I am new to blogging so be patient with me as I get the hang of it.

Assuming the story is true that you can sell your soul to the devil for untold riches then it makes sense that you can you sell your soul to God? If so, what could you get for it? We know that when we pray God does not give us exactly what… Read full post »
I have been MIA for a while working 2 jobs, getting ready for the Baltimore American Craft Council Show. I thought life was supposed to slow down after the kids leave the nest. I think this needs to be revised to say life gets better when the kids finally leave the… Read full post »
After the beauty queen had her misstep I thought long and hard about my views on Gay and Lesbian marriage. I really had not given it the evaluation that it deserved. As a christian I feel at constant odds with my faith and how to interpret the lessons in the bible. … Read full post »
A not too tasteful view of marriages gone bad. Every now and then I feel a little tacky.

There was a social scientist on NPR a few weeks ago that talked about the danger of living exclusively within a homogeneous population. The example he gave is say you are in an all white conservative community and someone says, “I don’t like black people, I thi… Read full post »
I am what I like to call a paranoid visionary. That means that when I first sense a conspiracy everyone around me tells me that I am crazy and then when my prediction comes to fruition I am then considered a visionary. I tell folks that it is instinct but instinct… Read full post »
Last week I received a panicked call from my mother saying that my son was just admitted to the hospital. Since he is away at the U. of Pittsburgh I jumped in my car and drove 4 hours to be at his side even though I was trying to overcome a… Read full post »
For two hours a day every day I try to escape the pressure of an economy that sucks, tuition that is killing me (It's been 2 years since I bought clothes or shoes) and the worries of everyday life. I escape with movies and books and hope to swap recommendations with… Read full post »
I love movies. I rarely watch TV, but I will sit down and watch a movie at least 3 or 4 times per week. I am finding it more and more difficult to find a movie critic that is impartial and will provide a critique that is intellegent enough for me to… Read full post »
I love my 9 lb alley cat and she loves no one but me. She was named after the cartoon charachter Patty Mayonnaise because when she arrived that was the boys favorite show. My son best described Patty when he said that our dog Brittany is a pet, but Patty is… Read full post »
When my oldest son came home from school my first reaction was, "Boy are you a crackhead?" At 6'3" and 190lbs the boy looked emaciated. He responded that since this is the first time he has lived in an apartment it was tough to budget his money. So Now I understand… Read full post »
In my limited knowledge of history it seems that revolutions arise when there is too broad of a gap between those that have the most and those that have the least. Sometimes it is power as in the case of minority rule. Sometimes it is wealth. This has led to many… Read full post »
I may drink alcohol two or three times a year. So why is it that since I started my holiday diet all I can think about is a cold Iron City Beer! Iron City Beer is only found in Western PA and to be honest with you I don't remember… Read full post »
I have one husband and two sons. I have never seen any of them open up a book that is based on fiction. I do however see them reading the news (internet), how to books, sporting events (on the internet) and picking up the occassional autobiography. Since I am the minority… Read full post »
To first solve a problem one has to understand the root cause of the problem. So I asked myself why am I over weight? The simple answer is I eat too much:-). Don't you hate it when fat people (I can say fat because I am one of those… Read full post »
The State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).
This is Title XXI of the Social Security Act and is jointly financed by the Federal and State governments and administered by the States. Within broad Federal guidelines, each State determines the design of its program, eligibility groups,… Read full post »

My son finally got me to watch Sicko with him.
I never wanted to view this video, I knew how it would effect me. I cried openly through most of the film. I left the managed care industry in 2002. My friends thought I was crazy, especially considering that my last… Read full post »
How I Helped Obama Get to Where He is Today.
Before this country was conflicted about race it was openly racist. That was when I and many of my black peers were sent off to college by our parents so that we could have a better life than they. Our… Read full post »
Things are picking up.
I have been working feverishly to get the traffic back to my internet site. I thought I would never recover from the wall street collapse, but slowly but surely things are picking up again. It is amazing how things have not really changed in the world but… Read full post »
I received an awful email at work that talked about how Obama is a muslim and that racial profiling is ok because only Muslims are terrorists. I sent a reply to all listing some other noteable terrorists like Tim McVey, the Unibomber, Weather Undergrand, Patty Hearst, etc. I end… Read full post »
At some point in my life I stopped seeing everything as black and white as white or wrong (pun intended). I started to understand that life and death are primarily gray areas. Sometimes someone is dead as they lay breathing on life support and sometimes people are alive but don't… Read full post »
Politics & Business Have Always Been Bedfellows
I have tried to stay visibly neutral in this race for the presidency but everyone close to me knows that I am an Obama fan. Running a business has made me sensitive to speaking about religion and politics. I am not voting for Obama… Read full post »
