This is my foot. A simple photo I took while lounging in Florida last June – but I like to have fun with simple photography. So I played around with it and ended up creating a digital piece that I like, so I named it. Looking closely at the effects on the left side, I […]

Years ago, I remember using the type of face masks that stuck like glue to your skin and dried to a crisp and required plenty of time just to remove it. I actually miss those masks. It was one of those mother-daughter moments and I thoroughly enjoyed them. Unfortunately, the ones available for purchase today […]

Thank you Ally at The Gerston Institute! She has written an excellent article especially for me! Okay, not really, but especially for people LIKE me who are driven nearly bonkers fighting the pesky insects in South Carolina in the summertime.

In 1922 she ( Elsie Lincoln Benedict ) told an audience,  “Most people use less brains in selecting the person with whom they are to spend their lives than they do in choosing an automobile, a bicycle or a cut of steak.

0 comments

Below is a link to a video clip from the TV series West Wing. I loved that show and still miss it. While I’ve tried to explain these Biblical passages concerning modern day issues to people who defend their bias against homosexuals, it rarely makes any difference.

Energy Modernization Act

0 comments

The “Energy Modernization Act” sounds like an act that’s on target for making things better for Americans, right? WRONG! While other states are demanding that chemicals used in fracking (hydraulic fracturing) be revealed, North Carolina has taken a step backwards. The Energy Modernization Act will actually prosecute anyone who reveals what those deadly chemicals are. Fracking Damage […]
