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 »

 As a piece offering for the coming year, though not a resolution, I present one of my favorite recipes:  Coq au Vin.  This particular version has been in my family for fifty years.  While I am aware that is not impressive, this dish is.  

My mother found this recipe in… Read full post »

Return of Voldemort


 When last we saw the wretched villain, he was tumbling off a tower with his nemesis/horcrux Harry Potter.  Due to a wand which recognized Harry as its owner, Voldemort was toast.  So we thought, until yesterday when he turned up in Tex, I mean Kansas.

So before you… Read full post »

A pepper spray weeding woman held other crazed shoppers at bay in order to grab one of the fell X Box 360's in a L.A. Walmart.  Approximately 20 shoppers were injured.  The store remained open.  The non-injured shoppers continued there quests.  The perpetrator is unidentified at t… Read full post »

Dear Mr Obama

May I first say, with all due respect, who in their right mind would pick a committee made up of an equal number of sworn enemies?  Is it not more than apparent that the Dems and the Republicans refuse to compromise and put the interests of the American people far down… Read full post »

A Kim Kardashian Kuiz








She's been such a part of our everyday lives, that we are forced to know more about her that we'd like.  Just a few short years ago it was all about Paris, now it's Kim, Kim, Kim.  

So you… Read full post »

Taking Both Sides - Now That's an Art


 It's difficult to see both sides of any arguement, especially if you feel passionately to one view.  Those who play devils' advocate and do it well are the ideal.  Yet if you listen to them, they given themselves away… Read full post »

Political Correctness NOT Found Here

In the summer of my junior year in high school, I attended a journalism course at Catholic University in Washington D.C.  Having gone through 11 years of Catholic schooling, I pretty much knew what to expect.  Had I been able to go to Jewish University, Hindu University or Shinto University… Read full post »

Open Call Occupy U.S.

Verb  -  To fill or take up (a space or time).  

I think that says it nicely.  From what I can glean from the far too many and numerous articles lauding this activity, while you all seem to think this is the next best thing since the sit-in, love-in, be-ins… Read full post »

Don't get me wrong, I do not, I repeat never, watch reality tv.  That said, I have a penchant for sit-coms.  This goes back to childhood.  There's something soothing about sitting down on the sofa, taking your brain, putting it on the seat next to you and watching mindless tv shows.&nb… Read full post »

From Seedling to Venus Flytrap

Gardening is an art.  Seeds must be carefully planted, watered and nurtured.  So much goes into seeing the seed through to maturation.  Yet sometimes, there are those who scatter seeds that grow despite neglect.  It just happens to be one of those well placed seeds.  Forgotte… Read full post »

Trying to keep this modest sized appartment neat is a considerable challenge.  For I time, my husband and I were quite active in the sport of triathlon.  It is unbelievable how much equipment is needed to train for those events.  

While the sport is quite competative, the gear is also… Read full post »

If It Ain't Good Enough to Be Trash-picked

It's very telling when the sofa you put out at the curb is left for the township trash collectors.   Is it an insult or just a way of saying that that furniture hung around a little too long?

Trash pickers, or recyclers of discarded, used goods, as I  like to… Read full post »

Ms Manners is Aghast

At a wedding this past weekend, a guest asked my nephew if they were going to have children anytime soon.  I cringed as I looked up at my nephew who fielded the question with ease.  He and his wife, though relative newly weds have probably had to answer that tactless questions… Read full post »

Confessions of an anti-dentite*

It started in 1997 with a Seinfeld episode.  It was actually better know as the Yada Yada episode, but it it, Kramer accused Jerry of being an 'anti-dentite.'  That show freed millions of previously silent folk who went every six months without complaint to their dentists.  In those st… Read full post »


 No, I can't answer the question.  I am begging for an answer.  If people want to pray together, no matter who is amongst that group, why is there always such an uproar?  

Sure, the Constitution states there should be freedom to worship or not.  So why is it all… Read full post »

Crisis, Crisis, Everywhere a Crisis

Whew, we made it through the debt crisis, or did we?  It matters not as before you can say "buried on page 11",  another crisis can be seen on the horizon.

I've seen a good many crises in my time, most notably the Energy Crisis, spurred by the The Oil Crisis,… Read full post »

Well, she's out.  We've had over a week to cry foul.  We've ostracized the jury, decided the judge really thought she was guilty, and heard endless rhetoric from the media on how that ghastly woman got a way with murder.  Despite it all Ms Anthony is free.

I did not follow… Read full post »

Right in the middle of a rather dull procedure, I finally realized why my life has gone no where.  

Now that's a rather sad phrase.  The procedure, one which I have assisted many, many times, is a minor outpatient surgery.  As a nurse who's done a good many types of… Read full post »

Way to go B O.  You just keep helping the world.  Abandon our allies, who needs Great Britain and Israel?  Break those ties!  This way when the caliphate occurs, we'll be on the right side.  

From the moment you took office we started a spiral down ward and it keeps… Read full post »

Misery Just Loves Company

Finally, in the midst of civil strife, natural disasters and bankrupt economies, there was something to smile about.  The British royal couple looked radiant.  It was simply beautiful to see.  The pageantry was fabulous.  The joy of the Brits more than apparent.  Kate's gown… Read full post »

What is Ken Jennings vs Machine?


I pulled for Ken Jennings during the recent three day Jeopardy event featuring two all time champs vs The Machine aka Watson.  It didn't seem fair as the computer clicked in long before the two humans and answered in his monotone voice.  Every now and then Watson would come up… Read full post »
