They had been engaged in a lengthy chitchat for about an hour now. They talked mostly about work, home life, parenting advice, and their children. It was nothing new that time passed so quickly. They had been good friends for many years, they even wore the same size clothes.
But this chitchat was different. Kathy had started noticing signs of teen-age rebellion from her son. It troubled her because he was still a pre-teen, shy of one year. She trusted her friend for help and advice for the problems she assumed she’d face one day soon.
Kathy’s son was basically a good guy. He wasn’t a problem in school beyond just being a little boy and doing what little boys do. As he got older, he played sports and began noticing girls. And he didn’t like keeping his room tidied up. So he was pretty much like other boys his age. No big concerns, until he wanted to go to the neighbor’s house and hang out with them. Then he’d come home and test Kathy by seeing what he could get away with.
Years have come and gone. Kathy has made a lot of mistakes along the way. She’s also done a lot of good for herself, and for others.

One thing for sure, it’s time for Kathy to finally be honest with herself and about the choices she’s making. Little does she know but this thing called honesty won’t be leaving her alone soon and she’ll have to be ready – either way.
It was now late and very dark and her steps had become slow, but deliberate. Just as she asked herself how much longer it would take, he drove up beside her. Without hesitation and a smile on her face, she got into his black sports car. If she had kept that pace of walking, Kathy knew it would be daylight before she reached her apartment. Continue Reading
Well, I’m not against people gathering for demonstrations in an effort to promote positive and much needed change, but this is beyond the pale.
Did they really say, “You can have sex with animals, or whatever” at this protest gathering in Zucotti Park?
“[University students] hated the hypocrisy of adult society, the rigidity of its political institutions, the impersonality of its bureaucracies. They sought to create a society that places human values before materialistic ones, that has a little less head and a little more heart, that is dominated by self-interest and loves its neighbors more. And they were persuaded that group protest of a militant nature would advance those goals.” ~ Muriel Beadle

I listened to Obama’s speech last night and like many of you, I heard nothing new on the solutions to the nation’s debt crisis. The blame game, information intended to mislead the public, and politicians not living up to their responsibilities is a miscarriage of duty and a moral disgrace. We, the American people, deserve better.
If the president knows the buck stops with him, Continue Reading

Due to an injury that kept me unable to work outside my home, I had the opportunities to watch the 2008 election cycle unfold on television and radio, and listen to the talking points coming from the major networks opinionists and cable commentators. Not a person to just sit down and listen to political commentary, it became very Continue Reading
