Too often I ask myself, where are our elected Democrats? We have a pandemic, massive protests, and rioting occurring right now in our nation! Now is the time to be with the people—not speaking to us on TV, not tweeting, not Zooming, not doing robocalls or e-mails. We need you with we the people. We… Continue reading Democrats: Where are you?!
As I wrote yesterday, last evening was an emotional one with tears shed as information was shared and erroneous statements uncovered. As parents, we want to protect our children as best we can, wanting to keep certain facts and information to ourselves so the hurts and pains of the past remain where we’d like them,… Continue reading Shocked, but Not Really Surprised
Few know of my religious background or my beliefs. Mainly this is because I’m a fairly private person and I’m respectful of the religious beliefs of others. I would characterize myself as more of a spiritual person over a religious person. The person I speak to the most on religious questions is my mom. Her… Continue reading This Bible Verse is on My Mind
When I first read the following words in an article by Mr. Grenny. I had to go back and read it again. In all, I think I’ve reread it at least 20-times. Eventually, we’ll get more used to the idea of losing a couple million of our fellow citizens. We already do. We expect to… Continue reading The Great Compromise

Then I found out someone I had worked closely with has a loved one on her way to the emergency room showing COVID-19 symptoms. All within an hour… Continue reading A Plethera of Curiosity

Today I volunteered for Gleaners Community Food Bank. Work is allowing us to volunteer at community agencies during our… Continue reading How Are You Helping Others During the Pandemic?
If it is true one’s worries are what turns one’s hair gray, you’d see I worry, a lot. I think it is both hereditary and because I’m an educator (teachers never stop thinking about their students, even 20 years after they had them in class). My current worries, which are mainly due, but not entirely,… Continue reading I am a Worrier
Main stream media, we, the consumer of your news, can walk and chew gum at the same time! In case you needed reminding. I know the Coronavirus has us all on edge. This is the biggest story you will most likely ever cover. I get that, and there is a whole lot of other things… Continue reading We Can Walk and Chew Gum at the Same Time
Well, it wasn’t really funny and it really wasn’t on the way to Costco. It was a rather disturbing thing and it was at Costco. After listening to all the runs on toilet paper and alcohol wipes, plus thinking we may at some point be cocooned at home because of the Coronavirus, I thought it… Continue reading A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Costco
