Dear Americans - please help a sister out, will you? I don't want the coronavirus and you shouldn't either

Dear Americans - please help a sister out, will you? I don't want the coronavirus and you shouldn't either
To the General Public of The United States of America, Coronavirus has equaled 9 weeks of quarantine. 9 weeks of frustration, misinformation, shutdowns, too early reopenings, terror to pee in a public bathroom, scared to death to walk into a grocery store, leary to touch a bag of carry out food and on and on....

Like literally, at the the end of the day, you know, to be honest, 100%. Or the assassination of the English Language as we knew it

Like literally, at the the end of the day, you know, to be honest, 100%. Or the assassination of the English Language as we knew it
Dear violent offenders of the English language, Once upon a time people were well spoken. Thee, thou and other lovely words were used in ways that we cannot relate to today.

Elton John, 48 hours post concert and he is still with me

What can I say. I haven’t written a blog in over a year and it took the surge of emotion from Saturday Night’s Elton John performance to get me to the keyboard. My head is still reeling and spinning from what I can comfortably say was one of the best show experiences of my life.... Read more »

Post election: I'm going back to my bubble, care to join me?

Post election: I'm going back to my bubble, care to join me?
One month post election. Leading up to it it seemed as though it would never arrive, election day. Now it’s come and gone and the angst of what else is now to come doesn’t lose any ground.
