My friend Ben Dukes, http://www.bendukes.com, @bendukes, posted an interesting item to Facebook today. With his permission: “My Dad used to keep a little notebook with his subscriptions listed. He’d list the date he signed up, the price he paid, and the date it would expire… I frequently get mail asking me to renew various subscriptions … More Good Example – Did You Follow It?
Do you sew? Did you sew at one time and then, well, you stopped? That’s me. I learned to sew when I was in, maybe, 3rd. grade and remember doing a 4th grade project where I sewed several items that were part of the project. The teacher didn’t believe anyone in 4th grade could do … More Do You Sew?
It is so amazing how time gets away from you. I was sure I had posted something to my blog within the last couple of months. I was so sure that I didn’t stop to look until today. Last October? Six months ago? How could that be? Mea Culpa! Life. It just gets busy and … More Where Did The Time Go?
I’ve been out of town for a few days and as I sit at my desk this morning, the daily TO DO list facing me, I see the list of names under the words “Thank You” and know I need to get busy. Mom had a thing about thank-you. Small things like a plate … More Thank You Notes – From Bother to Blessing

I hate to waste anything. I know, I’ll use it as Vitamin B fertilizer for my plants. … More The Plants Love It – My Nose, Not So Much
Maxi skirts are IN this summer and I couldn’t be more delighted. I’ve always loved long skirts. When playing dress-up as a child long skirts were my thing. Not hats, not heels, not jewelry, not even makeup. Long skirts. The last time I remember maxi skirts being popular was 40 years ago and I had … More Adventures With Maxi Skirts
“The van is here!” And, much like “Drivers, start your engines”, we were off – me, hubby, Teri, Mary, and Norma. We were part of a group of eleven who would meet up with thirty-two others for a trip to Ireland. The front door opened and suitcases, tote bags, coats and people headed out. Hubby … More The Key Is Here – Somewhere
I have this “thing” with paper shredders. If there is a way to jam a paper shredder I have done it. It sends hubby over the edge if i am shredding something and he hears the sound of a machine slowing down and working with great effort. And, heaven forbid, he hears the unit just … More Shredders Hate Me
It seemed simple. An informal sandwich lunch, a speaker, dessert. Around fifty guests. Normally the Adult Education Committee presents a speaker at 1 p.m. followed by desserts and coffee, but this speaker was available earlier and the social hall was available earlier so the Committee chose to have an informal sandwich luncheon at 11 a.m., … More We Have How Many Sandwiches?
