Posted by mcm0704 on February 19, 2018 |

My heart is weighed down with sadness over the horrible loss of lives in Parkland, Florida on Wednesday.  So many – too many – young people had their futures taken away in the flash of gunfire by a disturbed gunman who obtained an assault weapon much too easily. I heard on The Daily Podcast Friday […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on February 12, 2018 |

Starting my third week with no Internet service, thanks to Cable One who lost my initial order that was placed January 29th. The service was supposed to be installed within a few days, but that didn’t happen, so I called back the following Monday. This time I was told that they could not find a […]

Posted by mcm0704 on February 5, 2018 |

Did you watch the Superbowl last night? I did not, as I don’t have television reception here in my new house. I don’t even have Internet service yet, so all my online business is happening with the help of the hotspot on my iPhone. My computer has built in wi-fi, so once my office was […]

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.
