Well, fiddle-dee-dee

Here’s another piece of nonsense from my friend Tracy Farr…. This story is going to be short. I’m working on a plan to train my cats. I want them to scatter whenever I come into the house, and I don’t want them to re-appear until I leave. To accomplish this, I went out and rented […]

A Little Quiet Please

Posted by mcm0704 on April 25, 2009 |

Recently in the Dallas Morning News, I read a wonderful column about the benefits of meditation. Erin Goldman of Dallas, a high school senior, wrote the piece and it touched me on many levels. First, I could relate to what she wrote, “Meditation is more than sitting cross-legged on the floor in quiet darkness; it’s […]

Going on Vacation

Posted by mcm0704 on April 23, 2009 |

Tomorrow morning I leave for a long drive to Michigan, but the miles are worth it. I’m going to see my mother and help celebrate her 90th Birthday. There was a time many years ago when we weren’t sure she would make it to 70, let alone 90, but thankfully she is still with us, […]

According to Judith Warner who writes the Domestic Disturbances blog for the New York Times, those terms have been used to describe the top dogs on Wall Street. The men and women who study the market, buy and sell, and make tons of money. In a recent blog, she questioned why those Wall Street honchos […]

A Job Saved

Posted by mcm0704 on April 19, 2009 |

I know Mondays are usually reserved for Tracy Farr’s nonsense, but I couldn’t resist putting this one up early. Enjoy….. Links fixed In last week’s Stinky Creek Newsletter, none of the links worked because of the downturn in our economy. We instituted a new process for linking which had a few bugs. But NOW, hopefully, […]

A Photographer

Posted by mcm0704 on April 17, 2009 |

I keep saying I’m not a professional photographer. And I must admit I am a long way from being a good professional photographer. But since I take the majority of the pictures for WinnsboroToday.com I guess I am a professional. Plus, I can hardly pass up an opportunity to take a picture of our animals […]

Are They Trying to Tell me Something

Does anybody but me think it is funny that just below the picture of my book are all the Google ads for trash cans?



That’s It, I’ve Had Enough

Posted by mcm0704 on April 13, 2009 |

Another wonderful bit of nonsense from my friend, Tracy Farr. Enjoy….. I just wanted you to know that this past Tuesday I was so fed up with work that I finally decided to quit and find something better to do – maybe drive a big rig to California and deliver eggs or something. So with […]

Happy Spring

Some of us are celebrating Easter this weekend, and even though we have no little ones to hunt for eggs or hidden Easter Baskets, my husband and I have gotten into the spirit of the season. I dug out a basket and he shopped for some goodies to put in it. Then I decided to […]

Old Friends

Posted by mcm0704 on April 9, 2009 |

Old cars can be a source of unlimited frustration and anxiety for their owners, and yet they can hold a certain amount of charm and sentimentality. While most old cars are barely held together with chewing gum and rubber bands, and they threaten to die at each stop sign, many people would rather get rid […]
