My Four-Leaf Clover: hard to find, lucky to have.

I stumbled across a hashtag on Instagram this past weekend which read: #onlinefriendsareREALfriends I found it humorous because obviously a hashtag like that wouldn’t have been created unless someone felt the need to validate an online friendship to a ‘non-believer’.   Back in the mid-nineties I was a firm non-believer, myself. Remember when AOL was the […]

Another Goodbye

We all have our favorite blogs to read. The same way a parent fumbles with the words when asked which of her children she loves the best, the same is true with blogs.  They are all special in their own way.  I can think of some common reasons why people would support, encourage and stand […]

A couple of useful websites

Know what I learned yesterday? My blog friends will listen to me whine and complain when I’m sick and not one of them will say, ‘Suck it up, you big wimp.’ Thank you. My blog friends will ignore comments about my nasty hair and less than stellar hygiene and instead offer words of support and […]

In Search of…… a Cure for Malaria – and, Aliens?

While reading Cammy’s wonderful blog over at Tippy Toe Diet a while back, she posted about a few websites that do some seriously good work around the Internet – one of which I signed up for (thanks, Cammy!)  I’ve always thought that no act of kindness is too small.  Each of us has the ability […]

In Search of…Sunday: Who Ate My Blog, and FGWT

While catching up on blogs yesterday, I noticed that I’d received an email from Stephen Vinson who runs Who Ate My Blog.  Stephen is an amazing man on a mission to lose over 400 pounds; he’s already lost 230.  If you’ve never visited his blog before, it’s a very inspirational read. Yesterday, the Birmingham News […]

In Search of…Sunday: Nothing Happy about Happy Meals

When I was little, I thought that eating at McDonalds was a real treat.  When my Happy Meal was handed over by my Mom or Dad, I’d inhale the smell of french fries and carefully open the box.  I’d lay out and gaze at everything as though I were unpacking a picnic basket: hamburger: check.  […]

A test on Sunday? Yep: The Jung Typology Profile

Do you remember those magazines you used to read when you were younger that had quizzes like, Is he the right guy for you?  Do you have a love or lust relationship?  Which celebrity bad-girl are you? Should you dump your boyfriend?  As a teenager and well into my twenties I was hooked on those […]

Bye Bye, Pie! Mmm….pie.

So, it’s Sunday and you all know what that means:  I’m here to share with you a blogsational (it’s a real word) site that I follow.     I’ve been reading Bye Bye, Pie! for some time now and have just recently graduated from ‘blog lurker’ to commenter (I didn’t much realize the importance of […]

Eat, Drink and be Merry

When I was little, eating out was about as exciting as going to Disneyland. Some restaurants had placemats with puzzles on them; others had crayons in a cup and I could sit and color while waiting to be asked, ‘and what would you like to eat?‘ No broccoli, stewed meat and potatoes placed in front […]
