Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 18, 2015 |

I found these mushrooms growing by an old stump in my back pasture and thought they were very pretty. With the sun shining on them, it looked as if they had been gilded. I wish I could have captured that shimmer of gold, but pictures I take with my phone never look exactly like the […]

The Skinny on Weight Loss

Posted by mcm0704 on June 5, 2015 |

According to a couple of articles I read in The Dallas Morning News this week, we have been approaching the problem of obesity the wrong way, especially here in the U.S. The dramatic rise in obesity and type 2 diabetes in children and adults has most recently been tied to our sedentary lifestyle. So the […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on August 4, 2014 |

I thought I would try a little different format for my Monday offerings. I’ve been accused of never wanting to change a thing – not even to move a sofa in my living room – so I am just showing some folks how versatile I can be. WHAT I’M READING: Several books on tap for […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on June 6, 2014 |

When my sister told me she had to pay $4,000 for a pill to help her body deal with the effects of chemo she was receiving for breast cancer, I thought we had a bad phone connection. Surely it didn’t cost $4,000 for one little pill. To my dismay, I found out it really does. […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on October 4, 2013 |

Which won’t be much this morning as there is nothing in the news that I care to talk about. The mess in Washington is just that, and nothing I can say will make those folks behave. So let’s just have some fun with some comic strips and forget about the news. This first one is […]

Monday Morning Musings- To Cool or Not to Cool

Posted by mcm0704 on August 12, 2013 |

First I just want to say what a great time we had at the launch party for the Winnsboro History Book published by Arcadia Publishing. This was the first time for my co-author, Bill Jones, to experience a book signing event, and he was so surprised that so many people were interested in him and […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on May 13, 2013 |

Yesterday was a grand day. Since it was Mother’s Day I got to do whatever I wanted to, which included doing some gardening. For many years that was the day that I got a lot of bedding plants and put color all around my house. I don’t do that much any more as I have […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on January 21, 2013 |

On Sunday, Mallard Fillmore, in his inimitable way had this commentary  about the significance of today: “As most of you know tomorrow’s Inauguration Day holiday Martin Luther King Day and Squirrel Appreciation Day all fall on the very same day. This phenomenon won’t occur again in our lifetime… And it’s significance is already being felt […]

Your Chuckle For The Day

Posted by mcm0704 on November 2, 2008 |

I laughed so hard after reading this Mallard Fillmore cartoon this morning, I choked on my coffee. Funny stuff: “With only two days left in the campaign, the latest polling data show that 92 percent of registered voters now say they’ll scream if they hear any more polling data… “…while 84 percent say pollsters should […]
