Need a safe place to vent before my head explodes

Be forewarned, this is probably going to be a long boring blog about my stupid life.


I am 47 and 3/4 years old. I have been married for 26 and 3/4 of those years to the same man.  I have posted blogs about how much I love him, how much he infuriates me and maybe even how much I hate him (at times).  I have posted blogs about my girls.  I have posted blogs about things I have come to realize about myself and questions I still had about myself.  I should be so much further…

Have you checked a breast today? Yours? Your partner's?


Today was my yearly breast screening. Lucky me, I get the annual boob squish with a side order of manual check up. Oh ~joy~  


I do a self-examination faithfully on the 15th of every month. And guys, it's not just for women any more. Men get breast cancer too. The mammogram tech and nurse, cold hands/warm hearts, say they only do about 6 men a year. Not enough in their opinion. My husband, the …

Letter from Michael Moore


Some Final Thoughts on the Death of Osama bin Laden …a letter from Michael Moore

"The Nazis killed tens of MILLIONS. They got a trial. Why? Because we're not like them. We're Americans. We roll different." – Michael Moore in an interview last week

Last week, President Obama fulfilled a campaign promise and killed Osama bin Laden. Well he didn't actually do the killing himself. It was carried…

Obama Justice, help understanding.

First off Kirb is still with us.  He has done extremely well, but I the past couple days his lymph nodes in his neck are much larger... I suspect this is a sign that the disease is progressing rapidly.  He still goes on walks, eats vigorously chases hawks out of the yard and tries to be normal around the rest of the pack....  but I know the disease is catching up with him, and this time I don't think I can alleviate some of the discomfort.  We shall see.  He had a very excellent week  up…

For my Mom


Yesterday, May 1, 2011, was the unveiling at the cemetary for

the writing on the stone that she shares with my Father.


I wrote and spoke the eulogy, which expresses just a little

of who she was, and my love for her.


I would like to share it with my friends here:


"My Mother often told me about how she and her family came to the United States. She

told me that a lawyer who lived in her family's home town in Hungary…

Hate for hate?

‎"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."
--Martin Luther King, Jr.
