Whether you are pro-choice or pro-life, what Alabama has signed into law should upset you. Anyone who reads my blog with some regularity knows I am adamantly pro-choice. Nothing anyone says will change my belief that the government has no business regulating my reproductive rights. That being said, I can respect someone else feeling differently, … Continue reading Shame on you Alabama!
DISCLAIMER: Before you read any further, this is my opinion. Yes, I feel passionately about these subjects. If you plan to "set me straight", please don't comment. I will delete the comment.

What creamer will I use in my coffee? Which outfit will I wear to work? Blow out my hair … Continue reading Walking The Line
Already the 2020 election has more candidates than grass at a golf course. Social media is a complete mash of slings and barbs being thrown out all over the place. People are viciously attacking each other and the candidates.

Yes, spring officially started on March 20th. I know that. Yet it took a couple of weeks to start feeling like spring in my neck of the woods. Over the past couple of weeks we have had some BEAUTIFUL weather! The type of weather where you would rather be outside than in, where the birds … Continue reading Spring is in the Air
This is the second blog I am composing today. The first one I wrote, entitled "Living the Dream" turned out to be almost identical to a blog I wrote in March 2018 of the same title (see here). When I realized my whoops moment, I said to myself, "my brain..." My brain... it's what I … Continue reading My brain…
