We got home late last night from our vacation in New York. For me, it is hard to leave New York. I love the City, the sights, the energy. When leaving, I always feel lighter and ready to tackle life. If I ever win the lottery, or somehow become very rich, New York is where… Continue reading I Love New York!

Walkabouts and Photography
Whenever I visit someplace, I try to do at least one walkabout. On these walkabouts, I’m usually taking photographs of the places and thinking. Here in New York this week, I’ve been able to do a walkabout everyday so far. I’ve been around Rockefeller Center, around our hotel at 54th & 7th, and Times Square.… Continue reading Walkabouts and Photography
What Are My Skills?
As you have probably gathered in reading some of my posts, I’m working to discover what to do in the next chapter of my life. To help me figure that out, I’ve been reading Born For This by Chris Guillebeau. In one of the chapters, it essentially is asking the reader, me in this case,… Continue reading What Are My Skills?
Green Acres Here We…Wait, Wrong…New York City Here We Come!
The day is finally here. We head off to NYC tonight on the red-eye via JetBlue (heard good things about this airline, so hope they are true). I love New York. Often I find this odd since I’m such a introvert, preferring to be alone than with people. There is something about big cities that… Continue reading Green Acres Here We…Wait, Wrong…New York City Here We Come!
Get Ready…The Drum Beat To War Has Begun
As if we didn’t already have enough to worry about with our current president and his administration. You know, the tweets, the harassment of women, buddying up to white nationalists, backing down from the NRA, his family running the country, and least we forget, the lying, lying, lying. Oh, and his inability stand-up to Russia,… Continue reading Get Ready…The Drum Beat To War Has Begun
Where to Live for Retirement
A little while ago I wrote asking about what a former educator, me, might do after retirement. I received a few very viable possibilities. One of those (thanks Sonia) has stuck in my mind to possibly even start on the side now. I just have to hash out what it might look like and the… Continue reading Where to Live for Retirement
Dear RuPaul, You really broke your own ground rule of , “Don’t F* It Up!,” on All Stars 3. You let your queens decide who should be in the final two to lip sync for the chance to join the All Stars Hall of Fame. Big, no dare I say it, huuuugge mistake. Those queens,… Continue reading Dear RuPaul…
Hillary, please don’t make me regret voting for you in the 2016 election (although full-disclosure, I was a Bernie person). You lost. For better or for worse, the electorate, through the Electoral College, chose the current administration. I know no one likes to lose and it can make one bitter. Don’t go there. If you… Continue reading Hillary, puh-lease…
Hillary and Melania
Interestingly, Hillary and Melania have been on my mind in recent weeks. I would have to say they became prominent in my mind after the Stephanie Clifford (aka Stormy Daniels) story broke. I’ve been wondering if Hillary has reached out to Melania at all. After all, Melania was not in competition with Hillary, Melanie’s husband… Continue reading Hillary and Melania
Pansies and Brooms
We started off with another very nice day. Although I had planned on stopping at Lowe’s to get some more mulch, I did have some impulse buys too. While heading towards the mulch, I rolled by some raised garden dirt. It caught my eye, but I didn’t grab any until I was on my way… Continue reading Pansies and Brooms
