Thought For the Day…

Thought For the Day…

Replace the word “racism” with the word “culturism” (it doesn’t exist, by the way, but should). Would that change anything? What would it change if so? Would it make a difference in how society sees diversity? Think about it like this: if you couldn’t argue that “it’s in their blood” because culturism would say that …

Thoughts While Reading Last Night

Last week a friend of mine downloaded the Goodreads app to her cell phone and joined up with many others on a 2017 book reading challenge. You set a goal of a certain amount of books to read within the year and then off you go to meet that limit. I have never joined that …

Lies That Change Your Life

One of my favorite books is Where the Heart Is by Billie Letts. I even love the movie and think that it is one where both book and film are equally well done. If you haven’t read it, I highly suggest it. It’s a love story, sort of. It’s about this young pregnant girl who …

Are you hanging in there?

Hey, y’all! Hope you guys and gals are all hanging in there with me. I’m still working on the site but I think I have it mostly the way I want it. Of course, being female, and from Texas, I could change my mind next week and decide I can’t stand any of it. But …

Look! It’s a book…in a tree!

Yes, I am  trying to distract you all. I have nothing to write today. All has been quiet on the western front the past couple of days. The most fun thing I’ve done is go to the library, which for me is quite a lot of fun actually. I get lost in libraries, and bookstores. …
