"There are those in the ranks ..."
Saturday, July 23, 2011      6 comments

Do you recognize this as being part of a phrase from Dale Carnegie, the communication guru? While I haven't heard this phrase for a very long time, today it is on a continuous reel going round and round in my head: "There are those in the rank... Read more

Oh, I am so not going to have a good report today! What is that old saying: "When it rains, it pours" ... that is what has happened to me this week (and last week, and the week before that ... and back and back). I am so down in the dumps and ... Read more

Many years ago, when I was a young, naive, fairly unsophisticated, 19-year old country girl - full of dreams, aspirations, pep and vinegar, and ready to charge into life full-speed ahead - I married my Prince Charming on May 30. We were blesse... Read more

Being an Idaho "mountain girl" who feels very much at home living within the Rocky Mountain range, I freely admit that the ocean (any ocean) is very strange and totally awesome to me. The 'flatness' of the water goes on for eternity, or at leas... Read more
Super Moon ...

The big news for tonight is that we are supposed to see a "Super Moon" - which happens when the moon is closer to the earth than usual - making it appear much larger or "super". I won't be seeing the super moon tonight because we're having anot... Read more

Bill Cosby has long been one of my very favorite philosophers. Many years ago I heard him lecture on "How to Quit Smoking" - he had one very fool-proof method that he claimed works every time, on every one - no exceptions!! According to Bill, ... Read more

So today the Doc called with results from my latest blood work. Sugar is up a "tad"; cholesterol is down, but not enough; thyroid is improving SLOWLY. His suggestion "exercise, exercise, exercise - and limit the carbs and sugar". Somehow, co... Read more
Off the Wagon - or Under the Bus?
Monday, March 07, 2011      10 comments

I've never really understood what it means to "fall off the wagon" - but am guessing that it suggests that someone might temporarily lose sight of their goals or focus and make some unwise choices, then they might have fallen off the wagon?? H... Read more

Now it would appear that my prayers have very little effect on the weather! At first I felt such a heady responsibility with my "all-powerful, direct access to heaven" skill - that was when I thought the persistent snowstorms might be a result ... Read more

To all of those near me who are sick of winter ... I'm sorry! I'm truly sorry, but I had no idea that my prayers were so powerful and that the Weather Gods would take anything I said in jest and covert it to reality. What am I talking about, y... Read more
The Litmus Test ....
Tuesday, February 15, 2011      4 comments

Sometimes we look to Phil the Groundhog for assurance that Spring is on the way - sometimes we sit and watch the snow melt, puddle by puddle, hoping that Spring is on the way. But today I witnessed the Litmus Test for Spring and wanted to shout... Read more

I live out in the "country" - waaayyyy out in the "country". Neighbors are not close by. I don't see the glow from anyone else's yard-light, even on the clearest, darkest dark nights. I mean, I LIVE OUT IN THE COUNTRY. Now what could this h... Read more

It isn't what I eat that causes my weight problem! Oh no, contrary to popular opinion, it is not what I do eat that gets me in trouble with the scale - it is what I DO NOT eat that ends up being my nemesis - day after day after day after day. ... Read more

This past week I've tried to "talk" via Spark Comments to several members and have been sorely disappointed to learn that they have to add me as a friend before receiving any comments from me. This is what I don't understand: Why would someone... Read more

I've heard it said that one definition for "insanity" is to keep doing what you've always done and expect different results. Along that thought, every morning I've continued to do what I've always done - get out of bed, go to the bathroom, strip... Read more
