Living Longer


I hear it all the time – we’re living longer. Guess what? “A baby born in the United States in 2004 will live an average of 77.9 years. That life expectancy ranks 42nd, down from 11th two decades earlier, according to international numbers provided by the Census Bureau and domestic numbers from the National Center […]

Church Funeral Denied


Would you attempt to graduate from a college you did not attend?  Ridiculous question, right?  So where is the logic behind this dilemma? A gay man who died while waiting on a heart transplant was first offered a funeral by the Church where his brother was employed as a janitor,  and then they rescinded the […]

Merv Griffin


Sadly, Merv Griffin is gravely ill following a recurrence of  prostate cancer which first struck him in 1996.  Now 82 years old, Merv is hospitalized and fighting the battle of his life. I remember as a child watching The Merv Griffin Show on TV every day.  I didn’t realize at that time how influential he […]

Subliminal Hypnosis


No doubt you’ve heard of affirmations and subliminal hypnosis, both of which are being implemented by literally thousands of people with amazing results.  What you may not know is that we all have the ability to talk to ourselves and achieve the same result without purchasing the tools.  The only drawback to doing it yourself […]

Heat Wave causes Mood Swings


Ok, this might not be scientifically or psychologically proven, but oh my gosh it is so true.  Extreme heat waves can cause anger, anxiety, frustration, and every other negative emotion we humans can conjure up. The heat index here in South Carolina is 118 again today.  My little tin can has a temperature of 90 […]

Back from Mexico


My 16 year old daughter just returned from a week long trip to the Baja Peninsula of Mexico, where she was helping to build houses for the homeless, playing with the children and conducting Vacation Bible Schools. She was a real trooper!  First of all, she traveled alone, flying from home to San Diego, where she […]

Cancelling Online Payments


You would think that if a company will ACCEPT your subscription payment without a hard copy that they would also process your cancellation in the same method. NOT SO. Some of them want you to print out a form and fill it out (in detail) then snail mail it to them before they will cancel […]

Wire Creations


A blog of note… Bent Objects. If you haven’t seen this guy’s work, you need to. It’s simply amazing. The one I like best is called “Kite” and was posted in May… Here’s the link. They say a picture paints a thousand words… This man is a true artist; his wire creations definitely speak thousands […]



Listening to Lee Greenwood’s song, “God Bless the USA,” has stirred more than a little patriotism in my heart today of all days, July 4th. I cannot understand the ramblings of those so opposed to helping our brothers and sisters in other countries get on the road to true freedom. As we help them achieve […]

Take over

1 comment

Iraqi medical students (40%) are wanting to leave Iraq after graduation, so the government has decided they will not issue the certifications so the students will be forced to stay! These students feel that there is no way to change Iraq. Sometimes I just wish we would take over the country entirely since they obviously […]

President Bush Job Rating


So glad to see that America is waking up and smelling the decay of our government and freedoms. In a recent poll, President Bush’s job rating approval hit a new low at just 29 percent. That’s no surprise, everybody is always bashing Bush, which is sad. The good news is that people are starting to […]



My Mother lived to be 80. She was still living on her own, driving herself around, and appeared to be handling her health problems very well. She had heart disease (quadruple bypass in her sixties) and asthma. Her hesitance to call for help during an asthma attack is what led to her death. However, she […]
