I'm for regular folk who laugh and talk and who are not too serious. I am ready to laugh, but take pollyticks, families and education seriously. ___________________________________ Why is monies for schooling unequal within each state? ___________________________________ Sincerely noticing when a child is helpful with a small comment is powerful.

Review- Marked YA series

Marked is written by mother and daughter team. And, you can almost tell when the daughter is writing because it sounds like a teenager!

The series- I've not read, but I read Marked when I needed a breather from reading other books. I almost didn't read it because of the vampire… Read full post »

How to Not Use a Condom

Stacey and I were teenage horndogs. We could not find the time enough to have sex. Dreaming of having sex with Stacey was some days all I thought about as I sloughed through high school.

My first was to be mine for five years and by the time I went to… Read full post »

Given a choice between being happy and kinda happy- I'll chose kinda happy. Keeps you on your toes if your a pessimistic person who happens to have bi-polar I. Basically, this past 9 weeks has been a trial and a reward. Abilify works wonders, but costs about 740.00 US dollars in… Read full post »

Beth's OC: Seven Suprising Things

  1. Cutting grass. I got to cut our grass as a kid, and I loved it. The furrows and the shades of green before and after I made a swipe, but best of off all the smell- warm grass.

Writing Is...(Mini Ode to OS Bloggers)

Kanga, the Bipolar Cat?

Whiskers are there to allow a cat to know the "distance" of a crevice prior to entering small spots. This allows cats to not have the disgrace of Winn-the-Pooh who, if you've done your readings, could not escape through a window due to his...girth.

Fluff? Yes, stuffed bears and my cat,… Read full post »

Facets of my childhood are embedded in my memories. Today a family member commented that a football coach for a college team was being commended for teaching self-care skills. I responded that I think Americans are rushing childhood.
