    I Have Sinned...

    Despite having spent all of my childhood immersed in Catholicism (my mother was a convert), I  came away from the experience pretty unscathed. This is surprising, I know, but I'm a survivor of an organized religious upbringing  and damn proud of it. I have a very spiritual...

    Bad Drivers, Soy Candles And Vuvuzelas

    I had a busy day today. The snow is coming and when that happens almost everything you need to do suddenly becomes an emergency. Like, for example if you need dog food and the store is 12 miles away and you are expecting 12 inches of snow within the next 24 hours. Then, in...

    Good With People

    My life's dream was to be a mom. Through adoption I got my wish. There were so many things I wanted to experience with my children. I'm not sure exactly where going to the library ranks on that list, but being a big fan of literature and reading in general, going with them to...

    Here Is Your Heritage, Here Is Your Vest.

    I don't like class trips. I have always been an overprotective mother, so I always had a hard time with letting my child go on trip unless I too could be there. It's not that I don't trust the teachers and chaperons. I do. It's just that I have to be able to look at the...

    Stay On The Cart Path Buddy!

    The Ipad is innovative, definitely. It has a GPS so that you can hold it and see the night sky, in your house, without going outside--you can see the sky above your head, like I guess if there is a meteor shower and it is cold. I happen to think Bug Wands are one of this...

    One Million Millions

    One dollar--that's how it starts. You have a dollar, one hundred cents. One hundred dollars. Okay. So far, so good. One hundred  one hundreds is one thousand dollars. Got it. One thousand one thousands is one million dollars. Okay, it's getting a little foggy now, but I'm...

    It Is a Great Idea to Share Ideas!

    To let them into the world is to let them live. To give them to other people and let them connect. Dead words I have written on pages that no one sees. What is the point those. What good do they really do? Not much in my eyes. Better to write them here. People can see, feel...

    Liberty Cams

    I've lost count of how many times I've been to The Statue of Liberty. While I am not much of a tourist attraction kind of person, the Statue is well, here, and I actually feel that it is my patriotic responsibility to go because I can, easily. Plus also I love her.  While she...

    Dog Boot Paralysis

    Well, It seemed like a good idea. It's winter. There is all manner of disgusting stuff on the roads and sidewalks; runoff and salt and sand and muddy snow. It's tough out there if you're a human being, and I guess it's even worse if you're a dog. Twice as many feet smacking the...

    May I Escort You To Your Car?

    I love pedestrians. I am one. Also I love to run, so I spend a decent amount of time out there--actually on the roads--my feet making contact with the pavement. I share that space with cyclists (snobby for the most part, in their gear, too focused often to even give a head nod...
