Nobody gets away with just one word. Right? A popular trend these days offers challenges to say it with 50 words or less. Tell your life story in just ten words. There are even six word efforts with examples.
Now ask yourself, do you want to be limited to the number of words to say what’s on your mind? Details! How is it possible to fully explain or describe anything without the specifics? Who really wants
A recent article about the state of the American wallet started me wondering just what people were thinking in terms of how all the bonuses, wage increases, and various other incentives were going to affect their lives. To be sure the media upped the “woe is us” hyperbole. A slap in the face
Politicians and politics have never been bastions of trust, and the Liberal Media has flat jumped into bed with them. There was a time when Walter Cronkite or Edward R. Morrow were voices of trust. Paul Harvey brought us news that was real. Garrison Keillor brought us stories that moved us with Lake Wobegon, but we knew they were stories. Also known as fiction.
Now we get stories (fiction) that distort truth and we are led to believe they are based on facts from anonymous sources. As a nation we have been lied to on many occasions, such as January 26, 1998. When then President Clinton told his blooper! However, never to such an extreme
Do you dare to do…what? Is going along with conventional ideas and pressures where you feel comfortable? That’s what is generally referred to as going with the flow. Following the crowd. Doing whatever, because someone else does. You get the idea.
The opposite for most is just too scary. Daring to do what you love absolutely falls into that category. What’s more frightening is most have no idea what they love to do. You’ve heard that question. If you could do anything you wanted and money was not the objective, what would you do? Suppose you couldn’t
One more Bucket List item, or sorta, removed. Since the Ecuadorian Volcano, Cotopaxi, is considered in an eruptive state, scaling to the top is still off limits. No, there is no actual eruption, at least in the sense of lava flowing from the top. No huge molten boulders flying
Lately the liberal media and left wing democrats have resorted to all sorts of name calling and term dropping like a bunch of Magpies squabbling over crumbs. These terms come so quickly to their tongues and writings. There’s a great chance most use these terms not fully knowing or understanding their meaning or implication. They’ve just heard others, supposedly authoritative figures, and decided they sounded good and adopted them.
If you’re crusin’ then you’re loosin’! That’s one way to look at what happens if your grey matter is not fully engaged. So what’s going on up there when you’re just sitting, passively contemplating…nothing in particular? Have you ever noticed how your thoughts resemble popcorn? Thoughts jump randomly from one topic to another with no obvious connection. It may even seem like some sort of serendipitous place to be, as it rarely leads to the negative. How can that be known? Ahh…well personal experience of the writer is a great place to start.
Consider how many things you do on complete auto pilot? Are you thinking about your driving on your way to work, or shopping? How about the way you fry eggs, or toast bread? A good case can be made that the subconscious has taken over when you’re doing those things. That allows your thoughts to actually wander. The question is what happens
Are Major Retailers like Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, and others really in trouble? If you pay any attention to the news, the are. Why? Because they are closing down stores, and in the case of Neiman Marcus, supposedly putting themselves up for sale. However no concrete claim is being made just yet.
What is hitting the news is that this is all about a “soft economy.” Is it really? Are we just being introduced to another “flame” geared to scare the daylights out of all of us? Well, here’s a no nonsense
