A week or so ago, I took five of my office cats home to live with me. I felt sorry for them living in the back of the office and not having a window to look out all the time. They did get to come out in the regular part of the office when we […]

Last night I watched a 2-hr. documentary by Ken Burns on Cancer:  The Emperor of all Maladies. This first night – I think there are three parts to it – was about the beginning of cancer diagnoses and the doctors and scientists who have worked on finding a cure over the past century. The main […]

Well – here we are again – freezing rain, sleet and snow!  You know we were pretty lucky through Nov., Dec. and Jan. – so now we’re paying for it. This may continue for the next couple of weeks. At least that is what the weather pattern is looking like. We will persevere and as […]

Freezing rain – sleet – snow – not much snow and thankfully not much freezing rain around here. So, as far as I know – we’ve had no power outages just about an inch of sleet with a little freezing rain. I never saw any snow falling and had no evidence of it on the […]

I don’t know if you ever watch the Grammy’s which were on this past Sunday night, but I did this year. I didn’t just sit there and watch every bit of it but caught bits and pieces of the whole thing. I enjoyed some of it but lots of the performances were kind of over […]

I’ve been reading some strange books here lately which have made me think about death and life and the whole universe thing. As I was reading one of these books, a thought came through my mind about something that popped into my head shortly after I lost my father. This is what came to my […]
