One of my housemates was a professional athelete and made millions of dollars. He was young and stupid and spent most of it.

Happy Recovery Birthday, Dallas

Dallas is powerless over drugs and alcohol, a year ago today he surrendered. For a year he counted the days, and told us all how he did it. Sometimes his loud mouth was too much to bear, but as the days increased, he started saying something. Now he walks the talk and has a year clean. Thank you God... Sign in to see full entry.

Receptionist or Menu Options?

Whenever I call someone and encounter a receptionist rather than a menu, I am so relieved. Its even better when I can speak directly to the person I am calling. Phone tag is a phenenonal waste of time. Receptionists can sometimes be over protective of those they serve, but other times can interrupt... Sign in to see full entry.

Martin Luther KIng the man, versus, MLK, the superhero

I've been reading more about MLK's morals, behavior and theology. He didn't appear to be a very good guy. Then you read about the courageous things he did and said in the realm of civil rights and you see a very different type of man, a superhero. So which is he? Both. Sign in to see full entry.

Ward Churchill

I love people who tell the truth as they see it. They usually get hammered. My son was fired after he sent an e-mail to his boss telling her all the violations of confidentiality that the unit broke. He learned to be more judicious in his remarks after that. It is delicious thinking that you can... Sign in to see full entry.

Superheroes just do more of what heroes do in real life.

Last night I got a call on my cell phone at one in the morning. The caller had found my daughter's cell phone. This morning I noticed that I had missed several telephone calls from my daughter. So he must have decided to give it one more try before he went home. I suggeted her drop off the phone and... Sign in to see full entry.

Nothing wrong but everything

I do not have cancer, heart disease or alzheimers. What I have instead is fribromyalgia, a bad memory and weight too much. None of these will kill me, they will just make me wish i were dead. I will probably live to be one hundred whining all the way. There are a few people who live long and are... Sign in to see full entry.
