Eco-Friendly Driving

By on November 4, 2009

I’m collecting ideas on how to be eco-conscious while driving around the country. Our van is not a small, fuel efficient vehicle and if we had the means to do it, we’d probably trade it in. Although, the van affords us space to sleep if we want/need to for a few nights here and there. […]

Fan Mail

By on July 2, 2009

I rarely reply to or post email here from people that send me hate mail or very strongly worded You Suck mail or You are a Liar mail. I don’t post it because I don’t like to dwell on the negative and I feel like giving them any time on this blog gives it more […]

I Ain't Got No College Degree

By on August 2, 2007

Finding a new job is hard for just about everyone. Unless you’re the guy who is being hounded by offers, I guess. I’m not sure who that guy is, but I know it happens. For me, finding a job entails lots of searching and networking and hustling. And also looking up in the thesaurus the […]

So Then……

By on March 8, 2007

It was all going so well. And then I remembered I was me. And since I’m me, I want to do about a bajillion projects at one time. But seriously, let’s just say that there was this place. And when you went to that place, virtually, you could trade a handmade craft that YOU made […]

My Ineptitude Is Astounding

By on February 19, 2007

Not once, not twice or three times, but four times in the past year, my friends, I have deleted the folder with all my daily read links in it. I love Firefox and would preach it if they asked me, but COME ON it would be nice to have a question box that asks ‘Are […]

Current Smarts: Voting

By on October 30, 2006

My dad is Patriotic. Wait, I should have written it like this: CAPITOL P-atriotic. He used to read excerpts from newsletters written by Dobson and Schlafly at the dinner table. He sent me to John Birch camp. He gets tears in his eyes when he talks about the founding fathers. No, I’m not saying you […]

Oh Golly, Miss Molly

By on October 16, 2006

Alright, friends. It is that time. I’m finally ready, willing and able to put together that writers group we all got excited over a few months back. Here is what I know so far: I DON’T 1. want to be the president, vice president, secretary or treasurer of anything. 2. want anyone else to be […]

Current Smarts: Online Gambling

By on October 11, 2006

Have you heard of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act? Facts Pro Con I started paying attention to the goings-on because my husband’s new job is with a payment company. Most interesting thing to note: his days off do not coincide with the rest of the world because those days are high shopping days and […]

Why Do I Listen?

By on October 10, 2006

I can never get enough of public radio. I know where all the stations are in my area. I know when my favorite shows are on. I sometimes sit in the car for an extra 5-10 minutes after reaching my destination just to finish listening. The end result of this is that I’m kind of […]
