Observations

25 things every woman needs to know.

1) Life is a steep, uphill battle but it’s fierce & it’s beautiful & you’ll be sad to see it go if you live it right. 2) New people won’t stop coming into your life and opportunities won’t stop knocking on the door but you need to have the space for them. In all you currently have– be them relationships or obligations– step back and ask yourself “why.” If you can find the answer, hold tighter. If the answer escapes you, it’s…

Hello all

Hello everyone. I have been meaning to sit down and write something for you all. It has been quite a while, since I have written anything of substance on here. It has been quite a busy/hectic/emotional few months.

Can researching Cancer in Dogs Help People with Cancer?

This is something I am involved in and it makes a great response to today’s Daily Post. I own a boxer, he is a wonderful dog, and loyal just as the breed is known to be. Boxers are also known as the number one cancer dog. Every time I take Chico to the vet for a lump or unusual growth, I am met by the words, he is a boxer, we have to take it off. Luckily, I have had the ability []

Self Help?

Have you ever read a self-help book? Did you get anything out of it? Did any of the advise you read stick with you. There are three books currently on my reading list, that most definitely qualify as self-help books. Three Feet From Gold, The Mastery of Love (Toltec Wisdom), and Why Men Don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps: How We’re Different and What to Do About It tackle business relationship and personal issues. I am currently rereading Three Feet From Gold, I []

Epic Literature in Modern Drama

I wrote this paper in 2008 for Dr. Sorenson’s World Literature Class at Grayson County College.

I love classic literature, and am really missing writing like this. Let me know what you think:

Snow in N. Texas

Seeing as the ground is still pretty warm though, it wasn’t so bad. The worst part was the wind blowing me and my car around a bit. The first snow of the season used to be exciting, watching the news to see if school was going to be cancelled []

Christmas is in the Air!

Oh, how I just love Christmas songs! I have had my radio on the Sirius Holiday channel since just after Thanksgiving. I just love Christmas songs, it’s funny to me, how some people can’t stand them; and then there are those who would love it if they were played year round. I fall somewhere in between.

From Above

From the myths and legends of the Pegasus, Icarus and Daedalus, and Alexander the Great to the earliest efforts of flight of Ancient Greek engineer Hero, Leonardo da Vinci’s Ornithopter in 1485, and the Wright Brother’s flight at Huffman Prairie on October 5, 1905, humans have always had their imagination in the clouds. I may not be big on the history, but I do love planes, and as it turns out flying is fun. Now, I don’t mean commercial flying.   No, []
