“Emotions are the fuel to really move you along - that's the only way you can create music. If you don't feel any emotions, it's not going to happen.” ~ Jan Hammer
In one of her comments to one of my posts, friend and fellow writer Alice grist described how hearing of the success a childhood friend experienced in her career, motivated her to stir her own creative juices and start writing professionally.
Although their friendship had ended many years before… Continue
Another day a friend asked me what I miss most about Brazil , Well ,apart the normal things as Family , Friends and Weather , I Must say all my life I was spoiled by Brazilian "take care of yourself" (or pay somebody to do so) culture and I miss it here.
The one thing I can confirm is how good it feels to give your body a little care and love. It’s not as bad as you think. If you get your eyebrows waxed, you can probably stand the pain of a Brazilian wax.It might sound… Continue

Well, what do you know? I had the luckiest day EVER just yesterday! For those of you who knew, my blog was erroneously deleted by Blogger. Their crack team of robots had inadvertently declared my blog a SPAM
blog (I mean, really!) and it was deleted without any human eyes having
viewed it to see that it was the furthest thing from a SPAM blog! All
of my posts were gone, my buttons, pictures, etc., all GONE! But then
yesterday, the clouds parted and finally…
For today’s ‘Fess Up blog, I chose to write about a show that is very near and dear to my husband, but one that I really can’t stand. I think I’m probably in the minority here, because this show continues to be the #1 rated show in America, but I
must ‘fess up here and admit that I LOATH AMERICAN…
Okay, I get it - I've read the newspaper, and my mom has described (in lurid detail) the more disgusting scenes in Food, Inc. Our eating habits are terrible and I want my family to be healthier. Unfortunately, I'm also coping with busy schedules, picky teens, and a bank account that doesn't allow me to indulge in…Continue

(*Okay, you have to be of a certain age, or a connoisseur of old music, to get that song reference . . . )
My affair with Trader Joe started slowly, and innocently enough; I was a loyal Safeway customer, but a friend told me that this funky alternative store had a cheaper price on Crystal Guiser Juice Squeeze (the carbonated juice beverage to…Continue

It is 12 noon. I've been awake for 8 hours. I've been out of bed for 6 hours. Queenie fell asleep on the stroller on the way back from the grocery store, something she never does. She was that tired. And who could blame her? She woke up at 4 AM looking for DeeDee (her stuffed
elephant) but when I found him and put her back to bed she took the
opportunity to start crying. And didn't stop for another two hours when
I finally got up and brought her out into the living room.…

Recently I went back to my hometown for a few days to visit friends and revisit my childhood. One night for dinner my friend suggested that we eat at her favorite Indian restaurant. I had to admit
I had never eaten Indian food before, but I was up for anything. My 11 year old wasn’t very thrilled,
but she recently discovered she liked guacamole, so Indian couldn’t be that
different. Was she ever in for a
So here goes my blogging expedition, ill combine bad grammer with terrible typing, some raw and uncut video, some ranting and raving and alot of healthy questions.
I need an outlet so I may not get time to read as much as I expell my darker side into this internet funnel and allow my light side to relax and soak up the company or peace. So between a few updates and some ranting blogs i may not type much, I enjoy editing video more and leaving comments on things i wonder… Continue

Then said the Lord to me, you have seen well, for I am alert and active watching over My word to perform it., Jeremiah 1:12...when
you least expect it...I will manifest it. So keep looking for it...off
in the distance. And when you meet with extreme opposition and
resistance. Know that they are forerunners to the promises entrance.
This is not the time to quit...but stay persistent...in prayer. For… Continue

It sometimes seems as though the cosmos themselves just know it’s Monday. Holidays are over, the cold, gloomy weather descends, & the phone guy will be here sometime between 9 a.m. & my death. You know the old adage, “They just don’t build ’em like they used to”?? Apparently that applies to modems as well. After 6 years, I recently upgraded mine, only to have internet connection issues ever…

We’re in the middle of March Madness in our house – in every sense of the word.
My husband is obsessed with all things ESPN – especially football and March Madness. My employer holds a bracket contest every year – we can enter in 2 brackets at $10 each, first place gets 75%, second place gets the other 25%. Guess who one last year?
