  I love books. I always have. My love of books started when I was a child. In fact I still have many of my childhood favorite books - the same ones I enjoyed as a child. I have kept them all these years. I have even kept many of my children's favorites too in hopes that some day they can pass on their love for those books to their children. I … [More...]

  Life is full of surprises. You never know from one day to the next what might happen to you. Throughout history many wonderful people, both famous and non-famous, had had their lives end tragically. It's always a sad thing but I think it's even sadder when it's a young life so full of hope and promise. Some people who come to mind are … [More...]

Rock Out with the Beatrix Girls

The-Beatrix-Girls-Pop-Star--pTRU1-16831424dt

  When I was a young girl we didn't have the kind of doll assortments available to today's young girls. We had baby dolls and Barbies for the most part. That was fine but it's always nice to have more to choose from. These days there are so many wonderful doll characters to choose from. Have you ever head of the Beatrix Girls? I haven't … [More...]

Asthma & Allergy Foundation Offers Tips to Reduce Fall and Winter “Wheeze & Sneezes”

Tissues

  Do you or a loved one suffer from asthma or allergies? My kids used to be allergic to tree pollen when they were little but some how grew out of it - thankfully. Nothing worked for them, even prescription medications. They used to "bark" like seals (cough) when the pollen was high. These days we all just get the sniffles here and there, nothing … [More...]

Avoid Group Therapy – Switch to Cortana Smartphone

C1

      Have you seen the Cortana commercial where the people are sitting around in group therapy? Just in case you haven't I have posted it (above). The commercial makes me laugh every time I watch it. They are so serious about things. LOL! It's just a spoof of course. Your phone's assistant shouldn't put you in group therapy. … [More...]

Holiday Tablescapes and a $250 Gift Card Giveaway (ends 10/31/14)

CCM Scape 1

  My family and I live in a teeny, tiny condo. I think it's karma for something bad I did in another life or something. I NEED more space. Not just because we are tripping over each other in our home, but because I love to entertain and decorate for the holidays and seasons. It's hard to do when you live in a "shoebox" and don't have a yard. Oh … [More...]

Scare up some Halloween fun with Netflix

halloween night

  I remember years ago that there used to be a lot of scary (and not so scary) Halloween movies, televisions shows and specials on TV. These days we can hardly find anything good on to watch to get us into the Halloween mood. I have yet to even see the Halloween movies on television. What is up with that? Thankfully we have a lot of Halloween … [More...]

My Ramblings

Celebrity Spokespeople vs. REAL People

Cherry red summer apple isolated on white

  Do you ever watch television and see a celebrity pushing a product or service and wonder "Why him/her?" For example, Tommy Lee Jones promoting Ameriprise Financial and Catherine Zeta-Jones trying to get you to sign up for T-Mobile. I wouldn't associate these people with the things they are trying to sell you. In fact, I am never swayed by celebrity … [More...]

Healthy lifestyle

  Did you know that almost every day of the year has something special assigned to it? Most of these "holidays" and observances are unknown to most of us. For example, February 28, 2014 is National Pancake Day. This coming Saturday (January 4, 2014) is National Spaghetti Day. There are also weekly and monthly observances.

A look back at 2013

2013

  With the dawn of a new year hours away I thought I would take this time to look back on 2013 and reflect on it's ups and downs. 2013 flew by - literally. I think this was the quickest year I have ever experienced. I can still vividly remember watching all the New Year's festivities on TV last year. It seems like only yesterday. I know that is an … [More...]
