Valentine’s Day Soon Approaches…
“You Have to Laugh at Love,
Because We All Love Laughter and We All Love Love!!”
“All love shifts and changes. I don’t know if you can be wholeheartedly in love all of the time.”
My husband of almost 32 years and I just recently went through some extremely difficult shifts and changes in our relationship.
We separated for a while, but one day I read the Julie Andrews quote about love (quoted above), and it struck a cord in me…what she says is very true.
Happily, my husband and I are reunited.
We have jumped back on the carousel of married life and are reaching for the Golden Ring…our 50th wedding anniversary! I will be 71 and he 76 so we may have a good chance of making it to 50 years of marriage!!
“Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century.”
So; HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY to all, and try not to give up on a worthwhile marriage!!!
Live, Laugh, LOVE.

Come on folks! Please don’t make me pull my hair out of my head and beg you! August 25th kicks off the official start of “Be Kind to Humankind Week”. Beginning August 25th and ending August 31st. Of course, we implore you to practice kindness all year long. This particular week of kindness and practicing kind deeds was created because this is the week 22 years ago that 22 year old Bernard D. died because nobody wanted to be bothered! Read our about page for details.
Let’s get bothered together! Let’s practice kindness towards each other every single day. Some simple kind acts like smiling to a stranger, holding the door open for the person behind you, helping a disabled person with their groceries are very rewarding and are often appreciated. Take a look around you to see who can use a hand.
There is a book which I love titled “All I really Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten”. It is an excellent read. As adults we tend to forget the basic golden rule which we learned in kindergarten. Let’s remember to practice kindness today and everyday!
Happy Be Kind To Humankind Week!
September is National Prevention of Child Abuse Month…why the heck wait for September. We have to protect the kids everyday from being under the gun of controlling manipulative adults. Turn up your volume and listen to Pat Benatar… and thanks for watching out for the kids!
I’ve been saying for over 20 years that I am tired of the media’s hunger for broadcasting unpleasant news, news stories in poor taste and stories which glorify negative sensationalism. Most say we can either choose to watch these programs or simply turn to another station. However, television today is so inundated with foul language, foul behavior, and negative sensationalism that unfortunately there remains very few stations which provide excellent programming.
This is a testimonial by actor/producer Tim Robbins at the National Association of Broadcasters Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Listen to Tim’s speech at NAB. He speaks what I feel.
Dove ‘Evolution’ is a riveting, 1:14 time-lapse film of a young woman’s transformation from pretty, but ordinary girl to strikingly beautiful billboard model.
It deconstructs the beauty myth by revealing everything from the impact of lighting through the application of hair and make-up to retouching, to the photoshop-stretching of neck and impossible widening of eyes, ending with the comment, “No wonder our perception of beauty is distorted.”
Its goal was to promote Dove Self-Esteem workshops in Canada and create broader awareness of the Dove Self-Esteem Fund.
This second video is from the same campaign, it is titled “Onslaught”.
