Monster Album

It was the most awful-looking thing I ever saw. It freaked me out...totally. Early in the morning on Mother's Day Sunday I got up out of bed, stumbled into the kitchen and poured me a mug of coffee. With a steaming cup of the brew, I stumbled back into my bedroom and sat down in the nearest chair... Sign in to see full entry.

Inside The Box

I love friend Jeri, but I'm so glad she flew back to CA. She wants to go, go, go, and then go some more. That has never really been my style. I don't really like to shop, get tired of eating out, have given up going to theaters since I heard their seats were havens for bedbugs, concerts are always... Sign in to see full entry.

Tutti A Tavola

So, on the way from my place to Lidia's Italy, today, to meet up with other special people to enjoy all things Italian, and the last remaining days of the visit from my Santa Monica friend, I kept my eyes wide open. One cannot travel from one end of our town to the other without seeing something... Sign in to see full entry.

Ceviche Is Waiting

On a day like today, one should stay inside and keep warm, and dry, and cozy, maybe hot tea, or special coffee and the Sunday newspaper. But, I guess I'll go out in it anyway. Someone is waiting for me and I'm still trying to decide what to wear. I'm not sure whether to put on spring clothes, or... Sign in to see full entry.

Atlantic Beach Pie for a Pacific Coast Gal

I don't make desserts anymore. I don't need them, and if company doesn't eat them, and if sons don't eat them, there they are staring you in the face. Sis has given up desserts also, and never makes them anymore, and never orders dessert when we are eating out. But.... Our Pacific Coast Highway... Sign in to see full entry.

Enough Is Enough

"Weariness can snore upon the flint, when resty sloth finds the down pillow hard.” ~ William Shakespeare I Tried to give Slowpoke, my Beanie Baby Sloth, to Great-grandbaby Marianna, on Sunday afternoon when they were here. She was tired and testy, though, and didn't like him. She hid her face on... Sign in to see full entry.

Everybody everywhere desires fair treatment, fair opportunity, fair pay, fair play. Unfairness causes unhappiness, and worse, in families, on the job, among friends. Some people react more strongly than others to what they consider unfairness, even to the point of violence. They forget that this... Sign in to see full entry.

Hat Check

A combo of negative events and personal problems have sort of kept me away from this favorite place of mine for the last several days. I say "sort of" because I did drop in once in a great while, read someone who had just posted, and then retreated again. But, I woke up this morning feeling... Sign in to see full entry.

Performance/Looks Ratio

"Performance stands out like a ton of diamonds. Non performance can always be explained away.” When I look in the mirror, I must admit that I look like what I do.....not much physically challenging. There was a time when one could look at me and pretty much guess that I was a regular jogger, a... Sign in to see full entry.

On Criticism

It is definitely a part of Blogit--criticism--though we call it "comments". Mostly, we look upon it favorably. Actually, we desire it. It is the way we can tell if people are really reading us. I know, we get "view" pennies anyway. But we get those whether a person reads or not, just from the click.... Sign in to see full entry.
