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.

15 out 10 stars-

I'm buying this.

First, editor is like inhuman. There are no drops or wasted footage. Often I watch a movie and see a poor editing decision and wonder if the editor just didn't care enough.

Second, director. I prefer no named actors to known. A known star often overshadows theirRead full post »

Meat Talk

Meat Talk= When someone says "He's meat and potatoes kinda guy." I instantly know I am like "him" my, friend's husband, but I'm a girl. I'm overweight, but not because I'm a good cook. Nope. Not even close. I bought my first fresh/frozen fish at age 22 and cooked it frozen.… Read full post »

Dateless and Sexless for a Decade

I moved to Germany from Turkey in 2003. I stopped dating and having sex too.

Why? Well, I have bi-polar 1 and tend to be very open and loving to dark, swarthy men who are kind and have curls. I love their dark eyes. I love how the hair curls on… Read full post »


The anti-American street and parade and death of four civilian servants, and I just want people to know that I have lived and spent over 1000 days in Turkey. Although, Turkey is exceptional in being progressive. I lived in the southeast. And, let me give you a short/…

Those small plastic bags-
1. Make it a federal law that there can be no plastic bag under 2' by 1.5' (or there abouts).
2. Develop plastic that melts when drugs are placed in them or wrapped around them.
3. Develop a stain that transfers to the user if they hold or are near

My absolute passion for politics is like the weather- odd patterns- drought, heat waves, and holes in ozone. Despite my passion for Obama, I find very little toRead full post »

Gun Control- Keep it Simple and Broad

Gun Control Ideas for Less Deaths


1. When I mail a package I have to identify who I am, where I live and in triplicate. Therefore, gun owners have to register at "some place" a form in triplicate identifying where they currently live and where the "final destination"… Read full post »

Exactly one year ago I was Independent, but now I'll vote the Democratic ticket. But, I just do not agree with how politics and "talking points" are being trotted out by either right or left. There seems a tremendous reductionisim in the current Presidential election. Therefore, I still read- lots (rRead full post »

Sanctuary: Season 3 Review


I've come to unwillingly like Sanctuary. Terrible CGI. Music track sounds like its being piped through a tunnel. Acting has doubtful conviction. Stories are not multi-layered even whenRead full post »

Goodbye, Carol: Let It Not Be

"The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook." William James


Carol (name changed) is dying. I see so little of her because she spends a great deal of time in treatment, and when she is back to work she rather talk about whatRead full post »

dead gone
 the dead and the gone, to me, 46 years old and single parent with a 17 year old daughter is far-fetched. First, how does the main character, a 17 year old scholastic teenager not betray fear? Is that realistic? How is he not gasping for breath and having circular… Read full post »

Summer Reading: Julia and Julie

Cough up the $8 for this gem is worthwhile. I've read most of it in two days and am slowing down, but that's hard. It is HILARIOUS and not stuck in food, but in marriage, family, friendships with food as the binder. I like how… Read full post »

Being a North Georgia girl I had both sets of grandparents who were excellent storytellers. Storytelling is an art. The speaker has to know their breaks and deviations to pad the basic story and to add spice, but they also have to be aware of their audience. I was fortunate. ThreeRead full post »

EMILY DICKINSON, "Hope is the thing with feathers"

Such is the force of Happiness--

Assisted by its stimulus.

Let me bore you:

There must be karma which I did not believe in until today. I know I was horrible teenager to my mother, Laura Lester. Even when I was being mouthy I knew it was kinda fun. I'd roll my eyes. I'd/

Fox News Fact Room

The letter had a streak of red just under her name and a unhappy face off to the left. Cassandra had held it to her chest with a gasps. The label was typed and there were just two lines for the return address:

GOP 2016 Presidential Run Began in 2008

I believe that Obama Slammin’ is just a small piece of the long term plan Republican policy makers have, or Deep Pockets, campaign backers, have.

 So, here is my prediction. Bush. Jeb will come out and run once he is certain a few barriers are down:

Tom was tall and dark haired. He navigated planes and was deeply in love with me. Although, I was seven months pregnant with Jesse’s child. It was a tender love, but very strange and new to me.

Teaching: First Two Years Memories

The time I cussed in class I was amazed at myself. I had gotten mad at the fact that the majority of kids were not putting their best effort forward and I said (I thought in my mind.)

"Shit. Don't you believe in hard work. It feels good to work hard."… Read full post »


Here I am wondering...actually I've wondered this for many, many, many years.
I'm the fifth Annie in my maternal family. There are three generations of Annie's that have found pain and discord in their love. How can lovely love go so wrong and for three generations?
