The last few years I've done a fair amount of traveling.  These days, mostly by plane.  For the most part I've run into very little trouble making my connections easily and on time. 

No more. 

It's getting harder and harder to find reasonable non-stop flights and therein lies most of the problem.  Last February we ended up stuck in Maine for an extra five days as we watched one connection after another disappear.  Our Monday morning made-well-in-advanced&nbs...

I'll just cut to the chase and say..it hurt like hell.  At least what I would think hell would feel like.  And if this little thing caused me so much pain I can only imagine the pain and suffering in hell. 

I had no idea what happened at first.  I looked over at my trash can and saw trash spilling over the top and thought I'd just push it down a bit.  As soon as I put my hands near the top without really touching anything I felt extreme searing pain in my left t...

The love of truth is a rare commodity these days.  Critical thinking has become a lost art.  We're living in an age of "if it feels good it must be good" and "if it's true for you", great but don't expect me to join in.  My truth and your truth are not in sync nor does it have to be because there is no such thing as truth anymore.  

This morning I was studying about a blind man from birth who was healed by Jesus.  Most know the leaders of the day (the Pharis...

I make a pretty good chocolate zucchini cake.  I used to make it often in the summers when I had an abundance of zucchini from the garden. Even my son who hated squash liked this cake.  

Carrot cake is a crowd pleaser.  Just about everyone likes a good carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. 

But I have a new one for you.  I just got this recipe for an Unbeetable Chocolate Cake.  I haven't tried it yet but looking at the picture it looks absolutely delici...

I've seen death before.  I've known tragedy.  Who hasn't?  My personal life has been largely untouched by death in that I've not had any close relatives leave me yet, but I know it's coming eventually and I'm not sure how I'll handle it.  My parents and brothers and their families are still alive.  My grandmother speaks of death almost everytime I speak to her now.  She's ready to go and because of her advanced age, I will be ready to accept it when i...

Well maybe not a whole one, but I did have alligator today for the first time ever. 

I wasn't sure what to expect but decided to give it a try since I've never eaten anything "odd" before.  I had a chance back in Montana years and years ago to eat buffalo but I balked at it.  To me, a New Englander born and bred, eating an alligator or a buffalo (even in the form of a burger) would be considered odd.  Funny since eating a bright red lobster or a steamed clam dipp...

They say confession is good for the soul.  I'm feeling really guilty so I must confess. 

All kinds of things come to mind now.  The thought that it really isn't that bad comes and goes along with the thought that I can't believe I sabtotaged myself like that.  I've been doing so well and this happened.  Why can't I just be good?  Why do I do what I don't want to do and do what I shouldn't do? 

I am flawed.  That's the only human explanation.&nbs...

I have a friend who loves to go to garage sales.  I can take them or leave them but do have an interesting time looking around when we go out.  Some days are good and we come home with some "bargains and treasures" and other days not so much.  One thing's for sure, we do meet some interesting people along the way.

Today not only did we grab a few things on the cheap side we also had an interesting discussion with one lady selling her wares in her very crowded garage.&...

So it looks like the abstinence-only crowd was right after all. 

An experimental abstinence-only program can delay teens from having sex according to a new scientific study done over the course of the last two years.  This is the first rigorous research done showing success with an abstinence only approach.  This study helped sixth and seventh graders list the pros and cons to early sexual behavior among other assignments attached to the program.

Lately the subject of patience has come up.  I've been noticing for quite some time how extinct this virtue has become in our day.  People are hurrying too and fro not taking the time to really enjoy or even to help each other. 

I was listening to the radio the other day when a caller called in commenting on how he sat outside a Walmart just to people watch.  His observation led him to the conclusion that people are just so busy doing and rushing around...

My bags are packed and I'm ready to go. 

I just finished my last run in sunny warm Florida (actually cool today) until I return from Ohio where I'll be met with freezing temps from what I've heard.  I'll be flying into OHIO tonight to help care for my two baby grandsons while my daughter in love...has her third baby.  Hopefully...this time a girl but if not...there's always next time!!

I packed the pink/white Nikes because I think this third time will be the charm and I...

Ballroom dancing is progressing.  We had lesson #2 last night.  First we went over last week's lesson as an overview and realized we were practicing the rumba wrong.  When we finally got that straightened out, we were actually feeling good about our dancing for the first time since we started dance lessons.  Still have gads to learn though. 

Instead of hearing from the lips of my frustrated husband "you owe me big time for this"  I heard this week,...

I saw an interview with Patrick Swayze before he died.  He said "the only thing you can take with you when you die is love."  Very perceptive.  Sometimes it takes a close call with death to understand truly what is important in life. 

My husband came home the other day and said the IRS is getting brutal, more than usual, in accepting deductions.  I guess one lady donated about $10K worth of clothing and supplies to victims of a 2006 hurricane and the IRS rejected her ...

My husband, the ultimate hardworker, took an unusual few days off around the 4th of July holiday.  Usually the only time we take a vacation it seems is to go see one of the kids.  The last three years or so that included scheduling their weddings into our vacation time.  One got married in Maine, one in Wisconsin and another in Kentucky. 

And then with the arrival of grandkids that will have to be scheduled in as well.  We've had two with another on the...

"Save your fork." 

Our Pastor friend said those are the sweetest three little words in the English language especially for those who love to eat.  Not only does he know when he hears these three little words that he can keep on eating, there's sure to be something sweet coming his way.  This may be the best part of the meal, he said, especially for those with a sweet tooth.  So he gladly hangs onto that fork. 

Now along those lines dealing with foo...
