Don’t know whether to be happy or sad. Tomorrow, unless the end of the world comes first, or I pass on to the Happy Hunting Grounds, I become legally separated. Period. I will no longer be a part of a twosome. I will be on my own. Something I had dreamed… Read full post »
I watched Diane Sawyer's report on Appalachia's Children as an
ABC 20/20 special, "A Hidden America: Children of the Mountains"
Friday night. The word had gotten out in these parts to be sure to
see how accurate the report would be.
So I watched. I'll admit, there were positives and negatives to… Read full post »
I went to visit a friend who is a small business owner today,
and I felt so good shopping at her store.
Of course, it doesn't hurt her cause that she sells antiques. I LOVE old stuff because most things that have survived this long have to have had something good about… Read full post »

I fall perfectly into that demographic segment who should be a
flaming Hillary cheerleader.
But I ain't!
(But then, I have most often not fit into the little boxes into which demographers and journalists try to fit us all. So I won't lose any sleep over it.)
You see, I'm one of those older… Read full post »
This isn't a blog about scary Halloweens.
No, it's much worse. It's a blog about a civilization that consumes everything around it, leaving behind only its starved bones, monuments that the people built to their successes and war heroes, and empty decaying houses now devoid of life because life could… Read full post »
John McCain sure bragged a lot about the eloquence of Barack
Obama tonight during the last Presidential debate at Hofstra
University in New York. That was about the only positive
remarks I heard from the man tonight.
Essentially, Senator McCain was a sad sack tonight. I felt so sorry for h… Read full post »
So money is getting tight, and you've already tightened the belt
a dozen times this year. So now what? Take my advice. Most likely,
you can cut even more!
Am I an authority? Of course, I am! I'm an old woman. I've lived on a shoestring for some 60 plus years. I… Read full post »
John Edwards is an unknown at the Democratic Convention, as is his wife. His delegation from North Carolina are pushed to the back of the hall. He is a nobody, an unforgiven while even his message of the Two Americas seems to be forgotten.
Ok, folks! That's enough! We h… Read full post »
