Monday Morning Mess…uh, Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on January 22, 2018 |

Mmmmm…Mmmmm…Mmmmm I do encourage a few deep Yoga breaths to calm anxieties and relieve stress before moving on to my comments about the dysfunctional government that blithely goes on their way in Washington while average Americans pay the price. At midnight Friday, the government shut down because an agreement could not be made on the proposed 2018 […]

Bittersweet Moments

Posted by mcm0704 on January 17, 2018 |

Help me welcome Slim Randles as today’s Wednesday’s Guest.  Today he is sharing kind of a sad essay, but it also a very thoughtful piece.

Happy New Year

Posted by mcm0704 on January 1, 2018 |

I hope 2018 brings everyone much happiness and good health. This certainly is going to be a New Year for me as I leave this place that has been home for nearly 16 years. In so many ways this plot of land and this house has been more than a home. It was the fruition of my […]
