When in doubt, or I should say riding some kind of mini-breakdown, I call my semi-alcoholic mother. Over the years I have figured out perfect timing before she goes in for the kill--"utter disappointment" is her nickname for me after say, 5 minutes on the phone. But until that point I find a kind of comfort, the imaginary mommy/cookies kind. Not that she was ever that person.

"The reality is that women are treated differently by society for exactly the same reason that children and the mentally handicapped are treated differently. It’s just easier this way for everyone.

And you don’t argue when a women tells you she’s only making 80 cents to your dollar. It’s the path of least resistance.…Continue

Yesterday I became a published author. Not an author of a whole book, but a published contributing author. A published, contributing author in a book that was printed and showed up on a bookstore shelf. The latest Chicken Soup for the Soul New Moms came out yesterday and you can find me on page 231.

I just finished reading a beautifully written book that I received as part of a blog book review tour from Feminist Press. Did you know that some younger women do not like to be called feminists? What is up with that? But I digress.Continue

Yesterday I posted on my blog (http://www.imoutragednow.com) about a great illustration on balancing the federal budget given by Johnathon Karl with ABC news. If anyone is interested, go to ABS News and look for Balancing the Budget: Where Does the Money Go?
He demontrated using a bunch of pennies on a table to show that what Democrats and Republicans are squabbling over is a nominal amount of money relative to the whole budget. Unless we're…Continue

As a former television news producer, this clip of Kermit the Frog, reporter, never fails to crack me up. In it, he is at the scene of breaking news - an ongoing, live accident scene. Humpty Dumpty has fallen off the wall.
The kids love it because it's a nursery rhyme they know mixed in with with intense imagery, so that they are both familar with…

How cool is that? We thought so too. So, yes, Valentine's Day flowers cost a fortune, but at least when you do it this way some of it is going to support indie film and is…Continue

Playing on Facebook can get you a job - I'm not talking about Farmville, though I'm sure there must be something for which those skills can be used. While Facebook is thought of by many as a way to pass the time, the social network has broad business applications if you use it right. And it's only one of many networking, aggregating, blogging and mini-blogging sites out there, all of which can be used to pad your resume.…

Social media has revolutionized what it means to be a mother. Sure, the basics of mothering remain the same throughout the ages, but with all the information of the internet at our fingertips, new theories catch steam quickly, unsafe practices are brought to light in front of large audiences, and people can pick and choose which parenting methods work best for them in real time, as these methods are being used and tested by others.
One of the largest drawbacks to staying at home…

I've been blessed many times in my life and for that reason, I believe in paying it forward. Whether it's by helping other writers through the Liberty States Fiction Writers or participating in various charitable events, I think it's the right thing to do.
That's why I never hesitate to contribute to the Brenda Novak Auction for Diabetes Research. This…
