How I Love the Government

Posted by mcm0704 on September 30, 2013 |

Every year for the past few years we have come to the end of September with the two parties struggling to get a federal budget approved before there is a threat to shut down the government. The last time the threat was real was 17 years ago, but it doesn’t look promising that we will […]

Nothing New Today

Posted by mcm0704 on September 29, 2013 |

Obviously did not get a book review up today. Other things kept interfering. One of the not-so-fun-things was trying to understand a customer service rep who did not speak clearly. Then I had to listen to the most horrid music while on hold. Seemed like it was forever while I waited. I’m sure it was […]



A Tribute

Posted by mcm0704 on September 27, 2013 |

Earlier this month I posted that there was a death in my family and that is why I would not be blogging very much. I was a bit circumspect – as that is my way – and I was not sure I would actually publicly say who died. Many of my cyber friends do know […]

Gone Fishing

Posted by mcm0704 on September 25, 2013 |

This is from a blog I did a number of years ago when I wanted to share some of my experiences as a hospital chaplain. The blog is called The Many Faces of Grief, and I have been reading some of those older posts as I walk this path of grief. One thing I have […]

Home-Town Service

Posted by mcm0704 on September 18, 2013 |

My good friend, Slim Randles, may be the Wednesday Guest for the next few weeks, but I didn’t think anyone would mind. He always has something fun to read, and the other authors who were scheduled to guest this month understand that I rescheduled their appearances. The graciousness and kindness of so many people has […]

Handling Grief

Posted by mcm0704 on September 16, 2013 |

I’m still not feeling very social. This grief work is hard.  Next week I will post some reviews and guest blogs that were scheduled for earlier this month, and hopefully I will slowly get back to a regular routine here. One thing I learned when I was facilitating grief support groups is that there is […]

I’ll be Away For A While

Posted by mcm0704 on September 8, 2013 |

There has been a death in my family, so that is why I have not put up a new post since Wednesday. I will probably be offline for the next few weeks as I adjust to a new way of life. Remember to hug the people you love every day and tell them how much […]

Be My Guest – Jeremy Hawkins – Silly Things

Posted by mcm0704 on September 4, 2013 |

Welcome to the It’s Time blog tour with Jeremy Hawkins as my Wednesday’s Guest. Jeremy has been on tour for over a week already, and he has been scrambling his brain on this blog tour. So, instead of offering something of great seriousness, he thought he would change it up a little and share some […]
