Just want to wish everyone who celebrates Easter a happy and blessed Holiday. No matter what religion one espouses, spring is always a time of great renewal of our earth as flowers blossom, trees burst forth with new leaves, and there seems to be an air of great anticipation and eagerness about us. So I […]

Thanking a Veteran

Posted by mcm0704 on March 27, 2013 |

I am honored to share this poignant story from Slim Randles as Wednesday’s Guest today. It doesn’t have to be only on Veteran’s Day that we remember. Enjoy…. We buried Marshall Sprack last Saturday, and we will miss him. Ol’ Marsh was the cheerful old-timer who could be seen each day walking his two tiny […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on March 25, 2013 |

Well, I missed posting a book review yesterday. I decided to take most of the day off from anything online, and that felt good. I think we do need to disconnect sometimes. I went out to lunch with my hubby, and then we watched TV shows we’d taped, and I finished the jigsaw puzzle I’d […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on March 22, 2013 |

Are we ready for a computer driven car? Google is apparently developing a self-driving car, as are a few other companies, and we can look forward to a time when a computer will handle all the driving tasks that we now perform. Some say a computer will be better at handling the thousands of decisions […]

A Lesson From an Old Coot

Posted by mcm0704 on March 20, 2013 |

Today’s Wednesday’s Guest is our friend, Slim Randles, back with another bit of wit and wisdom from his popular newspaper column, Home Country.  It occurred to me the other day just what a blessing it is to be a grandfather. The children think we’re all powerful, a fount of knowledge and wisdom. Then they turn three […]

We have singers, musicians, visual artists, actors, writers, photographers and many, many folks artists, who are all responsible for the vibrant downtown area that has live music every weekend, exhibits, and of course our plays at the […]

Celebrating the Green

Posted by mcm0704 on March 17, 2013 |

I thought I’d skip my usual book review and take a moment to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The number of people who claim some connection to Irish heritage always grows enormously every middle of March, as we all like to join in the fun of leprechauns, shamrocks, and green beer. Did you know: That more […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on March 15, 2013 |

Yesterday’s blog hop was so much fun. I hope you had a chance to go visit some of the blogs and see where people went via the wormhole. The big news for Roman Catholics this week is the election of a new Pope, Francis the First.   Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires was chosen […]

National Wormhole Blog Hop

Posted by mcm0704 on March 14, 2013 |

While I don’t normally post on Thursdays, I couldn’t resist this one. Thanks to a couple of my writer friends, Stephen Tremp, and  Laura Eno, I found out about this fun blog hop to honor Albert Einstein on the occasion of his birthday. What all the participants are doing is writing a short piece on […]
