My Donut Caper
Monday, June 20, 2016      9 comments

It started on Friday morning. I was walking along and ready to cross the street, when a friend drove by and motioned me to stop over at his house. So I turned left and he got out of his work truck with a huge box as his work crew was meeting e... Read more

Sunday, June 19, 2016      8 comments

Thank you and miss you. Love you so much. Heatwave has arrived and I'm off to a movie with a friend. Will write about my terrible donut caper in tomorrow's blog. Wishing all a happy, healthy day.... Read more
Heatwave Coming, Earthquake Insurance, Misc.
Saturday, June 18, 2016      8 comments

Wow, if you've ever had the lunch specials at Red Lobster, they have the most AMAZING shrimp tacos. Really, mega-delish. Okay, so tomorrow is supposed to bring a big heatwave and we're into a five-year drought which means trouble as we hea... Read more
Shingles and Suicide
Wednesday, June 15, 2016      11 comments

Yesterday, a healthcare provider casually mentioned the correlation between suicide and shingles nerve pain. That there are a high number of suicides resulting from nerve pain. I researched it upon arriving home and found it interesting. ... Read more
When News Coverage Turns Into Maudlin Entertainment
Tuesday, June 14, 2016      8 comments

I understand covering the facts of a nightmarish event, like the one in Orlando on Sunday, but hearing the footage of the gunshots, seeing the dead bodies, etc. days later is when it crosses the line, in my opinion. That's why I limit my ne... Read more
Rearranged My Day Yesterday
Monday, June 13, 2016      10 comments

I just wasn't in the mood to go out yesterday with a heavy heart from the Orlando tragedy. I didn't plan to feel that way, it just happened. I'll go another time, no biggie. Doing well with less sugar, no caffeine, and less nerve pain fro... Read more
Heartbreaking News Right Now from Orlando- Largest Mass Shooting in U.S. History
Sunday, June 12, 2016      13 comments

I'm in tears over this breaking news; 50 dead and 53 wounded by what they are calling a "ideological motivated" (how politically correct!) shooter. Going to light my special candle. I can't stand how violent this country has become. D... Read more
I BROUGHT CARROTS W/ME TO THE COUNTY FAIR LAST NIGHT (and didn't eat them)
Saturday, June 11, 2016      7 comments

Okay, just a few years ago, I sparked here in a blog about how worried I was about going to the County Fair that night and all of the "tempting" food that would be wafting me in its direction. Fast forward a few years, and I wasn't a bit worrie... Read more
Shakin' All Over - A Rude Awakening at 1 a.m.
Friday, June 10, 2016      12 comments

Yikes! If an earthquake isn't scary enough during daylight hours, having a strong one wake you up out of your sleep is a super-frightening event. It was tough getting back to sleep because you always wonder if there are more on the way. I... Read more
What's Up with Me
Wednesday, June 08, 2016      10 comments

I wanted to pop in and say hello to all of you; every time I think I'm going to consistently blog, I wind up not doing so. Honestly, I'm going through another "going to take a break from SP" mentality. It happens every so often when I just get... Read more
In Memory of My Uncle Sal (Korea)
Monday, May 30, 2016      7 comments

My grandmother heard a knock at her door one day and nearly passed out when she opened it. There stood my Uncle Sal in his new Navy uniform to surprise her. What was so surprising? Well, he was just 16 and forged his mother's signature in... Read more
My Dearly-Departed Cousin's Birthday & New Things for Her Memorial Garden
Sunday, May 29, 2016      10 comments

I just returned with some embellishments to the little memorial garden I've set aside over these years in memory of my dear cousin who was like a sister to me. She's been gone six years now, and although far from my first loss in life, she was ... Read more
I "Think" I'm Feeling Better
Saturday, May 28, 2016      12 comments

After three months of constant nerve pain from shingles (dastardly!), it has not been a linear healing progression. That is, one day, you might feel a bit better only to revert back into the land of bigtime pain. However, in the last few d... Read more
Fitbit Lawsuit - Another Perspective (mine)
Thursday, May 26, 2016      11 comments

I am not a person who will sue a company because its device is inaccurate. I learned long ago that my FB is not perfect; a friend and I spent the day at Disneyland last year. He tracked steps with his phone and I tracked with my FB. Dear lit... Read more
Doggy shoes, Dog Owners, Diabetes Debate w/Friend, Pain Meds, Misc.
Sunday, May 22, 2016      12 comments

The other day, as I was driving along, I had to do a double-take. There was a service dog wearing shoes! No kidding. They looked like functional, rather than fashionable, shoes. Has anyone encountered this before? Just curious. As for ... Read more
