October 23, 2020 – Breathe through your mouth.

There are times in your life when it’s necessary to breathe through your mouth (BTYM). You folks with babies can probably relate to this. If you are a new parent and you haven’t yet mastered the technique, I’ll bet you’ll catch on soon! Maybe you’ve been able to tolerate the (multiple) daily diaper changes becauseContinue reading “October 23, 2020 – Breathe through your mouth.”

October 22, 2020 – Meat doesn’t mix with cleaning solution.

I have a confession to make. I am one of ‘those’ people. A bit vague? Sorry about that. Let me clarify (I’ll use an example that many people are familiar with). Back in the 80s, there was a very popular film called “When Harry Met Sally”. It starred Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. Meg RyanContinue reading “October 22, 2020 – Meat doesn’t mix with cleaning solution.”

October 21, 2020 – How come nobody warned me about ‘Blog Brain’?

Help me! I think I’ve developed ‘blog brain’. I can hardly eat or sleep. All I think about is what I should write about next. I cannot turn off my thoughts. “What should I write about today, or tomorrow, or next week?” I often ask myself. “Will people enjoy what I have to say orContinue reading “October 21, 2020 – How come nobody warned me about ‘Blog Brain’?”

October 20, 2020 – Book recommendations from a non-fiction enthusiast (Part Two).

Well, I hope you’ve had a chance to peruse the list I provided earlier of some of my favorite non-fiction books. I used to exclusively read fiction but once I got my mitts on a non-fiction book, I was hooked! It’s so fascinating to see how other people live, or have lived. Everyone has aContinue reading “October 20, 2020 – Book recommendations from a non-fiction enthusiast (Part Two).”

October 19, 2020 – Book recommendations from a non-fiction enthusiast (Part One).

I decided today to write about something a bit different than what I normally would. As I’ve mentioned before, I enjoy nothing more than a good (non-fiction) book and I thought it might be nice to share a few of the books I’ve read that I’ve particularly enjoyed just in case you’re a non-fiction enthusiast,Continue reading “October 19, 2020 – Book recommendations from a non-fiction enthusiast (Part One).”

October 18, 2020 – Take it from me, don’t forget to do your homework when hiring a contractor!

Let this serve as a warning for those of you that could use some help in the ‘home improvement’ department from time to time, but don’t do your homework. Remember back in the day when your teacher told you that in order to pass the class, completing the homework was essential? Well, in this case,Continue reading “October 18, 2020 – Take it from me, don’t forget to do your homework when hiring a contractor!”

October 17, 2020 – Arachnophobia

Would you like to hear a scream that will put everyone on high alert? Just dangle a spider in front of my face. I do hope that you’ve remembered to put in your ear plugs because if you haven’t, there’s a good chance that you’ll end up with shattered ear drums or hearing loss orContinue reading “October 17, 2020 – Arachnophobia”

October 16, 2020 – Have you ever met my brother ‘Turtle’?

If you’ve ever met my brother, you would remember. I assure you. I’m going to call him ‘Turtle’ because that’s probably the most accurate way to describe him. He walks slow, he talks slow, he eats slow, he drives slow. If he ever did anything fast, I might mistake him for somebody else. And notContinue reading “October 16, 2020 – Have you ever met my brother ‘Turtle’?”

October 15, 2020 – Love is never wasted.

Have you ever written something profound to someone and never heard back? That’s what I’m wrestling with today. Saw my ‘shrink’ this afternoon and shared with her how I had recently written something really intense, soul-baring and powerful to someone I love dearly. I wanted them to recognize how much they mean to me andContinue reading “October 15, 2020 – Love is never wasted.”

October 14, 2020 – Aging like ‘fine wine’ is a myth.

Oh, to be young again! You never seem to appreciate what you’ve got until it’s gone. The clear vision, firm yet supple skin, ears that actually hear, hips and legs that gracefully support your upper body and help you effortlessly move about. As you gaze at your reflection, you ask, “Mirror, mirror, on the wall…whoContinue reading “October 14, 2020 – Aging like ‘fine wine’ is a myth.”
