October 16 – A Very Different Day

October 16 is an eventful day. It is the anniversary of the day my parents got married (1954), and the day my nephew became the father of twins. And, in 2008, the day I had my stroke. I always mark that particular anniversary with grief for what I lost that day. Without going into a …

My First Week Without Facebook

It’s been a week already? Golly. I don’t miss it. I do, however, miss my friends and family. Facebook made it easy to stay in touch. At any rate, I have my self-allotted social media time filled nicely in spite of it. I do spend a lot of time here, on this blog site, and …

Goodbye to Facebook

Facebook has been a BIG part of my life for well over a decade. But after tomorrow, I will be deleting my account. There have been things going on there that point to a new Facebook, one that I don’t want to use, and in fact find offensive. For months now Facebook has been hiding …

What’s On My Heart Tonight

As you’ve probably noticed by now, I love cartoons, jokes, memes – any kind of (clean) humor. Even political cartoons, which have been around as long as we’ve had politics. Back in the day they were a way to exchange light-hearted banter about candidates and the political process, and keep things from getting so serious …

Some Changes Coming!

I’m excited that I’m working on several new things for this blog! First, rather than the What I’m About page greeting everyone who visits every time, I will have a prominent link to it for newcomers. And I will be adding an index of posts. I’m looking at several plug-ins to accomplish this, but for …
