My DH and I went to dinner tonight. I observed the couple across from us--I'm a horrible people watcher! The man was in his late 70s and the girl was in her 30s. They shared an appetizer with bread, shared a steak dinner, shared the dessert, ... Read more

Have U ever tried to explain the difference between a gas station and service station to an under-16-year-old? My 13-year-old grandson cannot believe that we used to have service stations. I explained how we drove in, sat in the car, and wait... Read more

I'm so tired of people needing noise everywhere: in the house, in the car, in stores, in malls, etc. Even if it's quiet in my car, someone will come alongside and have their "music" so loud it rocks my car. And if I were ever in a store whe... Read more
swn With the Experts
Sunday, May 09, 2010      2 comments

I contend that experts don't know everything. I've seen doctors make mistakes. I've seen teachers make mistakes. I always heard that if you read to your children, they'll become readers. Not so. I am a big time reader. I read to my childr... Read more

I had an ah ha moment. I wish it had been for weight loss or motivation or a love of exercise. But no--it was something I ate. On diets before, I learned to dip my fork in the salad dressing and then get some salad. I never liked it and nev... Read more

Handicapped Bathrooms
Monday, April 26, 2010      11 comments

I have a pet peeve. I don't like those people who think handicapped restrooms are ONLY for the handicapped. Yes, they're designed especially for wheelchair access, but they're there for everyone. If no one handicapped is in line, feel free to... Read more
