Adele sings a song about me!

Every once in a while a song comes along that just captivates me. “Someone Like You” does that to me. I cannot quit listening to it. It reminds me of “The Song Remembers When” by Trisha Yearwood. If you have never heard that song, it is about songs that always take you to a certain... Read more »

The whore is moving...

I am so sad today. When I first moved to Chicagoland, I noticed that I had a very, shall I say, active neighbor. He was friendly; but maybe a little too friendly. At all hours of the day and night, he had a constant line of men in and out of his apartment. They would... Read more »

A fond farewell to one of my favorite loves...

Remembering 9/11: Alzheimers & Memorial
I hope you are ready for the most link filled blog post I have ever done. However, my day was that awesome. I woke up this morning, and instantly read my newspapers. After that, Kyle and I started watching Good Morning America’s coverage of the 9/11 Memorial.  Once you start watching those things, you get... Read more »

Hurricane David: What do you know about him?

Today marks the 32nd anniversary of Hurricane David’s final landfall. Now, I do not normally write about history; however, I found it fascinating to know that there was a hurricane named David the same year that I was born. It was also the first male name to be retired, as male names had just started... Read more »
