    People are cruel & mean....keep your negative comments to yourself. If you do not have a nice to say, close your mouth. Social media has internet bullys whom voice their negativity from behind the computer but not face to face. It does not give you the right to decide who is correct or wrong. Maybe ... Read more

    I got a great cut today, and my hair looks so much better. When my stylist held up a mirror so I could see the back of my head, I was surprised at how much dark hair I have. The hair around my face is mostly grey, but it really doesn't bother me. After all, grey is the new blonde. That's my stor... Read more

    I was in a bit of a foul mood today, so it's important for me to take time to be grateful for those things I generally take for granted. I have a roof over my head, and it doesn't leak.

    I have finally purchased a bird feeder and have decided to hang it off a corner of the garage. I wonder how long it will take the birds to find it. Once again, it is unseasonably cold. Brrr!!!!

    4/27/2016 8:16:44 PM, by GORDON66

    In January, I started a 14-week wellness challenge. There were prizes to be awarded, and they were based on cardio and strength minutes. I was surprisingly competitive, so each week I found myself spending more and more time in the gym. By the last week of the challenge, I was averaging five hour... Read more
