Birthday Hazards


Lavender Roses
Let’s face it. Birthdays are hazardous to your health. Every birthday you have brings you one year closer to the grave.

They can also be stress inducers! Either we place lofty expectations on ourselves for the special day, or others put expectations on us: You have to have a party; you have to invite all your friends and family, even the people you don’t necessarily like; you have to go out and party; or, someone needs to take you out for a special dinner on the special day.

The Attempt at Finding Solace Again



I’m finding this blog writing has, of late, become lost in my daily life. Not that it hasn’t been important, but rather that life has been so hectically busy. That said, though I haven’t been publishing on a regular, weekly basis, it is what it is and I will continue to post as I’m able to find time (without brow-beating myself!)

Welcome 2015


Happy 2015

Well, I have to admit, I never realized I would be away from blogging for so long. But lookie there! It’s the end of January 2015 already, and all the spectacular holidays have been survived, and the bleakness that’s called winter is here. More

Justifiable Judgmentalism

Leave a comment


It’s so easy to judge others, isn’t it? So much so, that it often happens before we even realize it. Someone cuts us off on the road, and we immediately recognize them as an “ass hole” or a “friggin moron!” It’s an unmistakable classification of humanoids, of course, distinguishable by their lack of charity or awareness of any other species in their vicinity. And because we’ve defined them as such by their behaviour, we are justified in our judgment. It’s a “righteous judgment” of sorts, just like anyone who drives faster than us is an idiot, and anyone who drives slower than us is a moron.

Happiness Is…


Happy Life

There are times in our lives when we reach a state of happiness – that state where we look at our lives, and though not perfect, we can at least say we’re happy. I was thinking about this the other day, and started taking stock of what makes a happy life, when Hubby and I came strolling out of the grocery store bumping into each other through the doorway like an old Three Stooges short, then laughing, and one of the employees of said grocery store (as she was entering) said, “You guys are always happy and laughing together!” Our response: Life’s just too short to be taken too seriously.


How Did We Exist Without Internet?



These days, we do everything – everything – on the Internet. We pay bills, we communicate with friends and family, we break up with our ex’s (oh, wait … that’s text messaging…), and we watch television, look up facts, verify addresses, and even talk on the telephone! Companies conduct business through the Internet, whether by email or through their email messages, and even churches communicate with the “outside world” via their web sites. Hell, there are some churches (which shall, for the present time, remain nameless) that believe the majority of their ministry is through their website, even discussing ways of charging their cherished followers for listening to music or watching one of their videos! (duh…)


Healthy Changes for a Healthy Life

Spinach, watermelon, banana, orange, flax seed, and almond milk, baby!

Well, I think I’ve reached the point in my life where I’d like to do some of those “healthy” things again.

Oh, I used to do it way back in my 30’s. I did the weight lifting thing, and the proper balanced diet with proteins and carbs, eating every 2-3 hours to keep the metabolism up, dancing for hours on the weekends which also helped me keep fit – hell, I didn’t even have to watch what I ate at that point, it would just melt off me by the mere thought of it doing so! I even had a 6-pack for the first time in my life (today, it’s more like a keg).
