It's Hard to Measure Success (Part II)

You Never Know Yesterday you met Bjorn, who in his own way became the epitome of an American dream, or any country's dream, if one thinks about it in depth. Not born to wealth or privilege, he worked hard, invested well, and rose above some bad breaks of birth. Sally Mae was the girl at the other... Sign in to see full entry.

It's Hard to Measure Success (Part I)

You Never Know In high school Bjorn was a big, light-haired, fair-skinned boy of obvious Scandinavian descent, and he also came from one of the least wealthy families of anyone who attended Plainsville High. He was a friendly guy, and even though his clothes weren't always so clean-looking (he... Sign in to see full entry.

And the Rains Came...

Got a little wet today. Here in my section of California today it's a balmy 55 degrees with near zero visibility, rain, wind, hail, and flooding. And this ain't nothin'! The devastated communities of Montecito in Santa Barbara County, and other cities in Los Angles County are suffering much... Sign in to see full entry.

Mission Accomplished

I Bought One! Yay! I haven't been around much lately. The past few weeks I've been on the hunt for a new laptop; searching and researching, trying to talk tek to tekkies (something laughable to all who have ever attempted to do this), and leaving store after store wringing my hands in frustration...

Words of Wisdom

Don't Wait Till It's Too Late "Don't die with your music still inside you..." (Dr. Wayne Dyer). This I translate, courtesy also of Dr. Dyer, into " Don't leave this earth with your words still inside of you." I subscribe to this philosophy as much as possible. It might make me say (or write) too... Sign in to see full entry.

Seems to be Going Around Blogit...

'Another One Bites the Dust' I am tired. My old Dell Vista laptop died. Actually, it died a few years ago, but my local computer guru was able to miraculously resurrect the thing. Now it's used up the second of it's one life. I knew it was time to call it as totaled when IT started arbitrarily... Sign in to see full entry.

My Stuff is - How Old???

You know it's old when... Ever notice how sometimes you keep "things" around the house, just because, well, they ain't broken so why toss 'em? I keep a fairly up-to-date household, I thought. Until... Last year I was poking around in an antique shop and spotted some Christmas dishes on display for... Sign in to see full entry.

Do People Change?

"I Think I Get It Now, Mom..." It seems that sometimes, right around their middle school and high school years, kids discover that they have become, through some magical divination, for most part, way, way, wiser than their parents, or any other grown-ups. They know this to be Gospel, laughable as... Sign in to see full entry.

When Orchids Bloom

"Say Good-bye to Daddy" - Short Form It was just about this time of the year nearly 20 years ago when my dad was admitted into the hospital with pneumonia. His initial wishes were for no extended means of life support to be used for him. However, being of sound mind (exceptionally sound mind, I... Sign in to see full entry.

"Those Were the Days, My Friend..."

' I put on my little-girl pants and ran...' Note: I was going to write a Happy New Year post to everyone, and I will. I wish everybody all the best in the coming year. But this is for now. GypsyButterflyCa mentioned jeans in her post, and that got me to thinking about just who wore the jeans in my... Sign in to see full entry.
