Big News – and a little history

Warning - this post contains some background information that some of you may find… well, boring. As long as I can remember, I have been putting words onto paper - yes actual paper, I am that old. I started writing stories as a child, using a manual typewriter that my parents had. I would make … Continue reading Big News – and a little history

Towel Protocol

Due to an abundance of social events this year, such as the recent graduations and weddings, I have to share this important informational bulletin regarding visitations.

May contain wheat – unlike my pet rock

I freakin love hamburgers. There, I said it.  Judging by the number of hamburgers that are consumed worldwide I can also only surmise that I am not alone.  I’m pretty sure McDonalds didn’t change the “billions served” sign solely because of me, although in my burger hayday I certainly did my part to help.  I … Continue reading May contain wheat – unlike my pet rock

Keeping your sanity: A non-political rant about politics

I rarely get involved in politics on the internet.  And by rarely I kind of mean never.  Honestly I would rather stick needles in my eyes than get involved in a political argument online.  This does not mean I do not have my own thoughts and beliefs, I just know that the chance of winning … Continue reading Keeping your sanity: A non-political rant about politics
