Mark Twain - Tough Guy!
Thursday, September 05, 2013      8 comments

There are so many great Mark Twain quotations. I'm cleaning up paper clutter (very difficult)...even pieces of paper on which I've written things that made me think or made me laugh. Here's something that made me laugh again...MT's braggadoci... Read more
The Glass Thing
Friday, August 30, 2013      7 comments

I just looked at/read the Born Loser cartoon for the day. Is anybody else tired of the "glass half full/glass half empty" thing? The little feisty girl in the strip is asked "Do you see this glass as half full or half empty?" She says: "... Read more

I Feel Like Marilyn Monroe
Thursday, September 08, 2011      8 comments

They say that MM had to do a ka-zillion takes before she could polish off one line. Because of my performance so far with SparkPeople, having had so many new beginnings, I feel like Marilyn Monroe. I've never dated a Kennedy and I don't kee... Read more
Amazing Daughter-in-Law
Wednesday, July 20, 2011      7 comments

I don't blog too much but this seems too important not to share. In the past I think I shared about a trip my son and I had to Boston: he from Denver and me from Halifax. It was all my daughter-in-law's idea. She has come up with the idea... Read more
Mom Will Never be Gone (while I'm still here)
Monday, March 28, 2011      2 comments

Is it cruel to leave an open bag of jellybeans in a car overnight?
Tuesday, June 15, 2010      6 comments

I didn't plan to get them and now I have them and feel I am being very irresponsible and cruel. It all started this afternoon when I was looking around an office supply store. Who knew that there were strong temptations lurking? I thought ... Read more

Monday, June 07, 2010      7 comments

This is my take on this subject and it was brought home to me for the umteenth time recently when I had my son, daughter-in-law, cousins, and friends visiting the city (all different occasions). And after the visits were all over, I weighed less... Read more
