- Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
- January 17
- Resuming a career in writing after a 5 year hiatus to raise children. My work at this time focuses on Asperger Syndrome and life as a modern family. In the past I worked on manuals from HR missives to technical instructions on how to operate devices, and of course legal briefs. I have four children in age from 12 to 12 months. This is my year of intentional media where we have turned off the cable and watch logged in as a family programs we select.

I ended my romance with the Democratic Party this week. It was a long time coming ever since I was in kindergarten and listed Jimmy Carter, Mickey Mouse, and the Fonz as my heroes. My perversion must have started early as a side of effect of Nixon’s resignation when I was… Read full post »
The Occupy Movement has started across our nation. It has captured our imaginations of what can be done to take back our country from forces that have worked against the great American tradition of a middle class able to provide for their families with dignity and pride. We need to go… Read full post »
Beware of anyone who offers simple solutions to complex problems. When it comes to addiction painfully there are no simple solutions - EVER.

Louise Raggio passed away of natural causes at age 91 on Sunday.
I would like to take a moment to remember her fight for property rights of women. Louise fought a long hard Texas tough battle to pass the Texas Marital Property Act of 1967.
Before passage of that bill… Read full post »
Today I speak out on behalf of all of the young men in our country with Asperger Syndrome. I also offer hope to their parents. Most people with Asperger Syndrome DO NOT commit violent acts.

I have started a blogging campaign to get enough buzz about the issue of GPS with Victim Notification. Women in my generation are going through the very same horror as the women a generation before, the insane part is that today there is technology that can prevent it.

Sorry Gay Tea Party Patriots (I am not saying there are not any of you.)
Sharron Angle does not want your money. Sorry.
She does not want money from your employer if they treat you like a decent human being and don't want you re-programmed.
Sharon Angle enjoyed her day campaigning for the US Senate out in San Diego.
Only problem is that the district she wants to win is across the border a six hour drive away in Nevada. She wants to unseat Harry Reid in the November election but won’t talk to the… Read full post »

My previous post was about the high cost of BlogWorld. Any convention that costs over $800 before the room and meal cost needs to be something very special. The BlogWorldBlog responded with suggestions how to pay for the convention by asking for donations or holding a garage sale.

BlogWorld Expo is coming to Las Vegas October 14-16th!

You called me tonight with the lament in your heart that you had not done enough, seen enough, been anywhere, or done anything.
Your heart heavy with regret for chances not taken and a predictable path laid in front of you from age 18.

My ex-husband as of today owes $58,312 in past due child support including penalties and interest. He has never in the last 7 years made a full payment nor has he taken it seriously that paying child support is something all non-custodial parents must do including him.

My son has half of his grade this term depending on three projects related to the War of 1812.
