Santa is now an outlaw.....

Bad news for the kids who live in Britain, Switzerland, Malaysia, and a few other over-reactionary countries.....No pics with Santa, at least not while you sit in his lap. Yup, in those countries, laws have been enacted that BAN sitting in Santas lap....

Ahhhh, the believer....

I have no problem with religious types and their sometimes fanatical beliefs. But before you go all bible thumper on me, and condemn me for not believing, I think you need to read through this whole thing. I have no problem with you religious types...

The Black Friday Blues....

I guess it is too good to be true....the wish that for at least a little while, all of us can behave like mannered beings and live live happily together. Thanksgiving, the day when we're supposed to give thanks, and treat everyone as a brother or...

Dear United States Postal Service.....

While I completely respect that the delivery people you have work in the cold, heat, sleet, snow, and every other horrid weather condition, I have come to the conclusion they are afraid of the dark. You see, at least twice this month, my mail wasn't...

Why can't I forget...

Why can't I forget the days of Christmas past and all the happy times Why can't I forget my fathers anticipation for the seasons coming and his childlike joy of Christmas Why can't I forget my first bike, my first car, my first love why...

So Thanksgiving is here.....

Here it is....Thanksgiving is upon us, and we so often take things for granted. Let's all sit back and think for a moment...What are we thankful for? Here is my list.... 1) Parents who lived to ensure that I had everything I needed in life...

Finally, the block lifts.....

I came home tired from work today. So tired, my brain just had nothing to say. Then a friend messaged me and told me about her husband admitting to suffering from depression. It's a topic I know from experience. I suffer from depression. Oh, trust me,...

What's in a name?

Even before I came here to blog, my yahoo account is my name. My name is who I am, it defines me. I did use a character name on Myspace because my friends all said..."it's safer". Now, I am not one to shy away from danger, but I went with whjat my...

The holiday remembrance.....

As the holiday season comes our way theres something I really want to say to Iraq, Pakistan, and to Afghanistan off to battle go woman and man absent from family and all those they love hearing bullets, bombs, and airplanes above ...

A bit of wisdom from a source unexpected.....

"...What I've learned in this life so far is to let the little things go as much as possible and try to swerve to miss the big things. Life is like a long ride to nowhere in particular. We're bound to get a flat tire somewhere along the journey, and...

Absolutely disqusting....

This just out today..... There were two juveniles who dropped a shopping cart from an elevated rail on top of a woman who had just purchased a load of candy for disadvantaged kids in Harlem. The cart hit her and put her in a coma, but she is now...

Well, I said it would happen.....

I knew it. I said it would happen and everybody said I was crazy. They said the crime was so heinous that it wouldn't happen again, not like this. Since the Casey Anthony case and her subsequent aquittal, there have been two more reported crimes...

Thanksgiving memories......

A family dinner, a large cherry wood table. The white table cloth covered with dishes of every color and taste. The turkey cooked perfectly, both kinds of cranberry sauce. Mashed potatoes sit in a white serving bowl. The stuffing, spicy and...

Let the hating begin......

Now, friends, before you start hating on me and leaving me messages that would make a porn-star blush, read this all the way through. I just got done watching the History Channels special on NAZI Germany, the rise and fall, and there are many lessons...

Sasha Grey reads to first and third grade students.....

Okay, so you say "so what....a lot of people read to school kids". That's what I said, and I applaud Miss Grey for taking an interest in getting kids to read. She has been a part of the "read across America" program for years, and she is happy to do...

We are the ghosts.....

We are the ones that you never see, we are the ones you never get to know....we are the imperfect. Be it that we don't have perfect abs, maybe our teeth aren't perfect. Maybe we don't have the body of a Kim Kardashian or a "situation". We are the ones...

American soldier

Please forgive the ad at the beginning...it took me forever to get this to post right.

And now for something new.....

"...you have the freedom to be yourself, your true self, here and now, and nothing can stand in your way...." "...the only true law is that which leads to freedom...there is no other..." "...you don't love that! You don't love hatred and evil,...

ladybugs.....

They say it's good luck to have a ladybug in your house. I certainly hope it is. Let me explain...I can kill anything. Stinkbugs, flies, spiders, bees, humans who try to disrespect America (just kidding there),but I can't kill ladybugs. Well, they...

Let us not forget......

11/11/11...Veterans day. What makes this such a great day? It's the celebration of men and women who put their lives and limbs at risk doing what their country asked  them to. They never waverd, never failed to uphold their purpose and their pride....
