For my own sanity, I chose to receive the news that the Pope is advocating for civil unions for same sex couples as a positive sign. That is not to say I don’t recognize how civil unions are different from marriage. Many states tried to play that game and we all lost until the landmark… Read More Here We Go Again…
I was talking with my wife the other day and she mentioned that a new recommendation came out suggesting we should be wearing masks at home. Um…what? Yup, I googled this. Sure enough, Dr. Birx said, “If you’re in multi-generational households and there’s an outbreak in your rural area or in your city, you need… Read More Masks at Home?
Usually I am a rule follower, even when the rule makes no sense. Why? Because basically, I’ve been a “good girl” all my life. Recently, my wife and I went to a place on the river that normally is open for camping, but apparently the coronavirus made this a day camping area only. The first… Read More Breaking the Rules
Although my parents were very poor when I was young, I’m still a white woman who comes from privilege. Because after my father got his degree compliments of the military, he was able to make a very good living. We moved out of that trailer park to an apartment complex and then to a brick… Read More Privilege
Summer has finally landed in our neck of the woods. I was worried because we were having unseasonably cold and rainy weather, but now it’s unseasonably hot. Go figure. Normally, temperatures in the upper nineties would not bother me one bit, but this year is different. Our beloved pool is closed due to Coronavirus…even though… Read More Summer is here!
As usual, I troll social media because sometimes there are extremely funny posts. One of those asked why a certain business wasn’t considered essential. I had to agree with that popular author’s perspective and decided to weigh in with my list of essential and non-essential businesses. Note: There may be some tongue in cheek humor…… Read More Top 5 Essential and Non-Essential Businesses
Lately, I’ve felt like everything I’ve done is lackluster, including my blogs. I haven’t written anything besides my blogs in over three months. I have ideas but haven’t been too inspired to write. My blogs of late haven’t been funny or filled with interesting research. I don’t even want to read them to check for… Read More Lackluster
Unprecedented is a word I’ve been hearing more and more in recent history. Flashing red lights have been happening with increasing frequency and it makes me wonder what will finally occur to shake the cult-like following of forty percent of our nation? We are now in a dangerous new normal. The talk of putting economics… Read More Unprecedented
Like everyone else, I have been watching the news (obsessively). With retirement comes ample free time to obsess over the news. It’s grim with the pandemic and economic fallout that will surely affect millions of Americans. And yet, there is a spark of hope. For more than three years, there has been a deep divide… Read More Unity…
Recently, I read this blog that was posted in a Facebook group about the new trend— forming a “personal relationship” with readers. I suppose with the flood of new authors into the market, not just in Lesfic/WLW, but mainstream as well, authors have to do more marketing on their own and apparently, this is the… Read More Personal Relationships in Lesfic/WLW
