Washington DC Adventure – May 2017

OK, so I’m like WAY behind on my Adventure posts….and posts I need to do on other blogs I write for….it is so ridiculous! But…..I am going to work on catching up over the next few days to a week and then get much…

What’s in a birthday and other revelations…

I turned 54 yesterday……REALLY???  When, exactly, did that happen and what, exactly, does that mean, anyway?  I certainly hope it doesn’t mean I am supposed to go shop for one of those little old lady rocking chairs and start doing little old lady things…

01-20-09 – A Day To Remember

Today was a memorable day for several reasons.  All days have something that make them unique – regardless of how much you may think it is all the “same ole, same ole” routine, give it some thought and you’ll find something unique.  Today, however,…

Movie Review – Swing Vote

I went to see “Swing vote” yesterday and I have to say it was actually quite good! It can’t be compared to other Costner classics, like “Field of Dreams“, “The Bodyguard“, “Bull Durham“, or “Message in a Bottle“. But it also doesn’t fall to…

Saturday Morning Ramblings

I haven’t done a “just rambling” post in a while — plenty of specific topics took priority lately! So, here you go with everything that is on my mind this lovely Saturday morning: Tomorrow is Mother’s Day! So, I thought I would talk a…
