    Growing Up Rich...in the Small Things

    I grew up in a small apartment in a borough of New York City...the building had 6 floors which we called stories, each with 10 apartments. Real privacy was impossible...whatever we didn't hear with our own ears the gossipmongers spread. Yet I loved growing up this way...I loved...

    It Is The Small Things That We Do That Matter.

    Like last night. My wife came into the living roomhe walked up to me as I sat on the couch. She bent over and she gave me an extremely passionate kiss. That was a deeply intimate moment. It is small things that couples do for each other that counts.

    Small Things That Make Me Really Happy

    There are times that I feel frustrated about wanting something and I'm not able to have it, maybe because it's expensive, there are no more, or plenty of other reasons. But then I think to myself...why frustrate yourself when there are such great things outside that money can't...

    I Need A Grammar Nazi, For I Am Troubled.

    I have been called Miss Giggles.

    I get excited very easily. I love to read. Have always loved to read since I was a little kid. I tend to laugh out loud if I read something funny, even if no one else knows what I am laughing at. I love to watch funny movies and funny shows that have innocent humor. Not movies...

    I Like Simple Small Things Best

    I just think it's the meaning or feeling behind it that matters, and the love put forth into it. I'm refering to things like hand written letters, poems, drawings, photographs, handmade or hand picked flower, a card, a penny tossed in a wishing well, a kiss, hand holding, a great...
