Have you ever seen and read such vitriol as in the past couple of weeks? Holy cow! I couldn’t suppress a chuckle at the truth of a cartoon I saw, showing a recent, current, ‘feed’ of what was trending on Facebook:

‘Flag, flag, flag, cute dog video, flag, gay marriage, flag, flag, gay marriage, cute dog video...’

Don’t say it!

It has happened so many times that you would think by now, I’d have learned my lesson. However, I seem to willingly become a magnet for becoming jinxed.

But only when I open my mouth.

“Gosh,” I’ll think, turning the key to hear my truck leap to life, “for a beater, this sucker just keeps on running...”

Don’t say it...

But that's just me

This is how out of the loop I am being childless (and Porsche-less as well as gated community-less) because I was completely unaware of a cherished tradition that a friend of mine, who also happens to be a mom, posted on Facebook: the ‘Moving On’ ceremony for eighth graders.

“What is it?” I typed, bewildered.

Will it ever be over?

Our internet has been out. For days, weeks, months. A ‘good’ day is when it drops, oh, maybe 20 to 30 times. And while I loathe to use my column as a way to shame any provider or name them, publicly, sometimes I feel that when we complain, Paul and I are just whistling in the wind.

Now that's love

News anchors have all been atwitter at the bold proclamation of love from a Nairobi lawyer, who goes by the name, Kiprono, and is offering President Obama 50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats in exchange for the hand of his beautiful and eldest daughter, Malia.

A battle of wits

Shauna White, a comely blonde reporter based in Toronto, Canada, is featured in a video that has now gone ‘viral’ around the world, showing first hand how commonly lewd behavior as well as sexual harassment still prevails.

When you gotta go...

Perhaps it’s because I came from ‘depression era’ parents, but boy, I hate to see food go to waste so with this in mind, for the third time in a week I entered the house with yet another bouquet of asparagus from the garden.

You're on your own

Without a doubt, one of the largest television audiences of the year tuned in to watch the transitioning of Bruce Jenner into his what is, for him, his true sexual identity.
