While others look back and reflect on what happened in 2012, I prefer to look forward to what might happen in 2013.  When one fantasizes, anything is possible.  Perhaps this is how we will recall the fabulous year 2013:

2013 was a record year for hurricanes.  We never made it beyond… Read full post »

Each year we pull out the same wonderful stories to share with family and friends, or maybe just to cheer ourselves.  But most have a lesson to be learned, not only for the characters, but also for the reader.  A review of my personal favorites leads me to… Read full post »

Another Christmas Memory

My Christmas memory involves the office where I worked before going to nursing school.  The office personnel was entirely female, which in my experience, is never good.  If that's not PC, sorry.  

It was the end of November, post Thanksgiving, and thoughts were turning to the approachi… Read full post »

Lincoln, the Movie How far we've come?

Sitting in our lunch area with two of my friends, we overheard one of our co-workers speaking to someone from another unit.  He was telling that woman about a patient who seemed to be nice and "with it" til she went "all Aunt Jemima" on him.

My two friends, who happen… Read full post »

An American Bully - The Atheist

Tis the season to be jolly and who else is right there to ruin it but the biggest, baddest bully of them all, the atheist.  Talk about a hater with a lot of time on their hands.  Any time any religious display is discovered, there the atheists are, being oh so… Read full post »

LEMMINGS

Have you ever heard the phrase, "like lemmings over a cliff"?   It refers to herd mentality of following the leader, blinding going without rhyme or reason.  Usually the death of these rodents is accidental, the result of trudging into unfamiliar territory, totally unaware of the dangers in… Read full post »

VOTE

VOTE.  While we are still free to make our own selection.

This election is a big one - just in case you had your head in the sand.

I will be voting tomorrow.  I know the candidates (for all the races in my district) inside out, do you?

Make sure your… Read full post »

America's Ten Years of Stockholm Syndrome

For the past ten years, America has been suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.  I say ten and not eleven years because the syndrome does not manifest when an individual is first kidnapped.  Only after time has past, the victim begins to sympathize with his or her captors.

We have been held cap… Read full post »

And the Band Keeps Playing On and On

It was not until about the third time watching  The Deer Hunter that I finally understood what was going on after the Russian Roulet scenes.  The dead bodies being flung into the trash showed how little human life was regarded in war torn Viet Nam.

Happy Independence Day.  Read the Declaration of Independence.  It's a splendid document, a very daring statement which took enormous courage to write and sign.  If you want something inspiring, read the story of Lopez Lomong.  It made me cherish what I have all the more.

The Definitive Oxymoron

The Supreme Court.

JUNE 25, 2012 2:59PM

Happy Anniversary!

Today marks the 50th anniversary of the supreme court decision banning prayer in schools.  If you look at our history since then, it can readily be determined that this decision heralded the downfall of the morality of this country.

Don't get me wrong, we still have morality.  We just defin… Read full post »

No, I don't skate, I love those who can,

Especially ice hockey, I am a huge fan.

My Son the Doctor (Ph.D)

To say that I am extremely proud is an understatement.  He worked diligently to achieve his many, many goals. Entering… Read full post »

MAYDAY =PRAYDAY

There's that nasty word, pray, again.  Yet what better day to pray than today?  When I was a little girl in the early 60's, May Day was the day the Soviets paraded their weaponry in the interest of intimdating the free world.  What did we do, in our small upstate NY… Read full post »

Open Call: Stand your ground

Stand your ground only applies when the NAACP and the ACLU says it does.  End of story.

The Reverand Al Sharpton, and alleged man of God, and the media also play roles in determining whether it is appropriate to stand your ground.  However, they are more pot stirrers than determiners.  … Read full post »

How to change America

Watch the You Tube video "If I Wanted America To Fail"  if you haven't already.  If it makes you sick, thank goodness for you.  If you think my suggesting others watch this makes you sick, I see you as part of the problem.

Socialism Defined

 Much has been said about socialism and similar isms in the last few decades.  While far from new concepts, few truly grasp the meaning of these words.  We know the pat answers but, to be sure, there's more to it than the classroom riposte.

 Sticks-and-stones 

 When I was a small child, a classmate called me a name I can't even recall at this time.  Crying to my mother, I sobbed, heartbroken by the presumed injury.  In her wisdom, she examined my head, arms and legs for bruising and, finding none, she uttered these words… Read full post »

 The libs were jubulant, my friend.  Their arch enemy, the evil Rush Limbaugh had once again given fuel to their flames, creating a prodigious inferno.  The wreched man calling the sweet damsel a fille de joie.  How dare he!

With tax season upon us, a rousing discussion occurred regarding the best way to be taxed on our wages.  One young lady, recently married, stated she planned to take advantage of that and claim '1' , married on her W4.  Most of us cautioned against that saying she'd owe a bundle.… Read full post »
