The Healing Power of Horses

It's true. This is well worth a minute to scan through. The article tells why horses really can physiologically help us to feel better. Has to do with their hearts and electromagnetic energy. I imagine it could apply to some people also. The Healing Horses: "Recent studies conducted by the Institute... Sign in to see full entry.

Beware

So, it was Labor Day yesterday. All jobs run the risk of encountering be-atches. Some are worse than others; all are dangerous. In celebration of the holiday, though a day late and no doubt a dollar short, here's one example. I was wearing a new dress; powdery blue with a floral print of golden... Sign in to see full entry.

Music Not for Children!

"Moonshadow" When one of my girls was little, a song happened to come on the radio that absolutely terrified her. We discussed it very briefly, though it was one of the more difficult discussions I've encountered with a 4 year-old. I very quickly concluded by telling her that we'll not listen to...

Good News

"V" is for Victory I heard from our former fellow Blogitsville resident, Big V, today. He asked me to say hello to everyone here from him. And, against the odds, though still very weak, he said his has emerged The Victor in his battle with Pancreatic Cancer. Congratulations to him. He said he has... Sign in to see full entry.

Some days...

Some days we aren't able to post a blog. Some days just get away from us. Some days we just can't do it cause of other "stuff." Today was like that. I did enjoy a nice lunch with Daughter #1 and got caught up on how the twins are doing after the first week of high school. They like it - so far! Hope... Sign in to see full entry.

Foods That Aren't Here Anymore

"I Want My Maypo!" So many "foods," for lack of a better term, have gone away. Sure, they were processed, but that's still an issue today. I sorta remember the slogan for the breakfast cereal, Maypo, quoted above, but I'm certain I never ate the stuff. Maybe it was too expensive. Maybe my parents... Sign in to see full entry.

Walking for Health?

How Safe Is It to Go for a Walk? Kitty-corner and across the street from where our house backs, is a canyon, a canyon teeming with wildlife. Every so often the sound of the hunt echoes in my bones, and I cringe. Not long ago at sunset, three coyotes sauntered up from their lair, searching the... Sign in to see full entry.

She Crashed Her Lover's Funeral!

What She Did, and How She Did It It is said that of all the Italian peoples, the Neapolitans are by far the most dramatic. Wander through Naples, if you dare, and you may find this to be true. But you don't have to do that. A story as told by Cousin X about her Neapolitan grandmother, a lady... Sign in to see full entry.

Who's a Gypsy, Part III -Sweet the Revenge?

"He Was a Hard Man..." Above is a quote by my older cousin about Grandfather. In those days children, especially motherless children, were "fostered" to families who provided a modicum of shelter and food to them in exchange for child labor. The little boy arrived in the US only to be fostered out... Sign in to see full entry.

Who's a Gypsy? Part II

Where Was Grandfather From... My last real post left off with the little boy aboard ship coming to the USA. He was no more than five, and not traveling with his father, according to manifests I have researched. So someone took care of a tyke long enough to get him across the water and safely to a...
