Being A Kid Is No Longer Fun

 Can you picture a world of people floating around in big, cushy bouncy bubbles?  In this world, you may accidentally float into another’s space, but you will never get hurt because you are protected.  Does that sound good to you?  WAKE UP!!      A friend of mine told me that they wanted to buy...

Ronald Mcdonald is innocent

I know times are tough…even for Ronald Mcdonald.  I still can’t believe that people are trying to get Ronald Mcdonald fired.  -A group of 550 health professionals are creating a stir to fire Ronald because he’s promoting unhealthy foods to children. I’m disturbed and angry about this subject matter.  The world had lost its marbles,... Read more »

A Friend's Betrayal

Betrayal.   Movies, songs, poems and plays try to portray this ugly fact of life, but they don’t really say how to deal with the aftermath.  Do we really understand this underhanded, back-stabbing, punch in the gut, turn me over and call me Sally type of sin?  Until you, the betray-ee, fully realizes what has transpired, you’re...

Losing a pet sucks!

I just lost my betta fish, Charlie.  For those of you who think you can’t love a fish then you didn’t know Charlie very well.  He just passed moments ago. My apartment doesn’t allow pets so I thought getting a fish would be a good idea.  Well, betta fish are unlike any other fish I’ve... Read more »

Blood Makes You Feel Alive

I’ve decided to give something back to society since so many honest people have helped me along the way.  I read in my church bulletin that there was a blood drive taking place and that all were welcome.  This was the perfect chance for me to do so.  When I was 21, I was involved in a horrible...

3 hours from Chicago to the 19th century

This won’t be my usual sarcastic blog(well, maybe a little), but all in good humor.  Everyone has a different opinion of a good vacation and I just wanted to share a bit about my getaway weekend.  Have you ever been to Galena, Il?  If you haven’t heard of it then it’s a place you should visit....

Gardening is a squirrely sport

I thought I read a long time ago not to feed the bids and squirrels.  It’s a free country, but there are consequences to such things.  Animal lovers are one thing(which I am), but talking to squirrels like pets and having them in your house is another. The garden apartment I live in is great!  The...

Hot weather brings out weirdos

I can’t believe what I saw today after taking an innocent stroll through a department store.  The weather makes people do strange things in the stifling heat.  Nobody feels like a fresh breeze or a cool cucumber in this weather…no doubt, but I do believe that there are certain things that are a little inappropriate, despite the hot weather.   I decided to take...
