I’ve got a song burning in my head

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD I think everyone knows how distracting and annoying it can be to get a song stuck in your head, especially if it’s a particularly bad but catchy bubble-gum pop-song. I have that problem often and am currently in the middle of a lyrical obsession. My obsessive, ADD […]

Reading opened my eyes to many things

The Way I See It by DON WEST Recently, I have begun to enjoy reading again. I now read for mostly pleasure, whereas for many of the past years I was reading for business purposes. Industry periodicals, educational material, trade journals, and financial information were all important ways to better myself and attempt to find […]

Get with it, Granny!

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY Each time my grandson, Chase, (who recently turned 9) enters my house, he asks the same question, “Waz up, ole Granny?” I never get a chance to answer, as it is posed more as a greeting than a true question. He is off in a flash. I couldn’t really answer […]

Peace on Earth

No resolutions for moi!

The Final Word by DONA H. SMITH One of my favorite books to read to my youngest, Casey, was “Love You Forever” by Robert Munsch. I was always touched by the words, “I’ll love you forever. I’ll like you for always. As long as I’m living, my baby you’ll be.” The words could never be […]

I hope everyone received wonderful gifts without going broke, ate lots of rich holiday foods without gaining too much extra weight and most […]

A simple “thank you”

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY Remembering to say thank you is something we all should do more. Common  courtesy, right?  As human beings we are flawed, and as a result, we often go about our lives a bit too self-absorbed, too focused on us. My Momma was famous for reminding us that “a simple ‘thank […]

What’s that moving under the tree?

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD Few things are more heart warming for a child than seeing a cuddly new kitten or puppy under the Christmas tree on Christmas morning; until it piddles on your presents. Pets can be a wonderful addition to any family. I for one am a huge advocate for […]
