Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on July 29, 2011 |

Here’s an interesting comment from Secretary of Defense Robert Gates responding to a question about why the U.S. continues to treat Pakistan like an ally even though its government has proven untrustworthy. “I would say based on 27 years in CIA and 4 and a half years in this job, most governments lie to each […]

As President Obama and Congress keep the financial woes of the country locked in partisan politics many are concerned for senior citizens, the handicapped and our military because of threats to stop cutting checks to Social Security, Medicare, and government payrolls. Wait a minute. There’s a better way. When personal finances get a little tight, […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on July 25, 2011 |

Drama Camp is officially over. We had our last production yesterday and the response from the audiences was great. We had over 80 in attendance Saturday night and about 70 on Sunday. It is quite a challenge to put a show together in just two weeks, but it always seems to work. The kids did […]

Book Review – Swept Away by Marsha Canham

Posted by mcm0704 on July 24, 2011 |

Back in March when authors who are part of the Backlist E-Books group were participating in a special sale, the book that kept popping up as a best seller on Kindle lists right along with my One Small Victory, was Marsha Canham’s Swept Away.  At first I thought her book was another contemporary suspense novel, […]

This is the last day of drama camp. Wow, it has been an intense two weeks. We have had twenty-four campers ranging in age from six to thirteen, and they are a creative, energetic bunch. The good thing is that they have put together a great show in this short span of time, even though […]

Book Review – Dear Cupid by Julie Orloton

Posted by mcm0704 on July 17, 2011 |

Kate Bradshaw writes a popular “Dear Cupid” Web advice column, but finds it difficult to offer positive advice after her painful divorce. She would like to tell every reader to “dump the bastard and move on.” Not exactly the kind of pithy advice her boss wants her to give. In an attempt to regain the […]

It’s not crazy, but it should be

Posted by mcm0704 on July 15, 2011 |

The Youth Drama Camp is going well and is so much fun, but it is also very time-intensive. Two weeks to prepare for a production and mount it? Whew! Not to mention finding new ways to keep almost 30 kids engaged and focused. Today I’m sharing a bit of nonsense from my friend, Tracy Farr. Since […]
