Fashion history repeats itself

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD On a recent shopping trip to a local department store with my teenage daughter, I began to notice eerie similarities to the clothing style choices that she was sifting through, to the styles that I once wore many years ago when I was approximately her age. Isn’t […]

Life is short – forgive yourself and others

The Way I See It by DON WEST Last week we discussed anger and hurt and how we can possibly deal with it. I guess there are some of us walking around completely unaware that we are carrying the anger or that someone in our past has hurt us, but we don’t or won’t recognize […]

Friends through the years

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY Now, when I refer to friends as new friends or old friends, my old friends are truly old because so am I. I jest, but these long-time friends and I are “getting up in age,” as the saying goes. We share so many memories, and no matter how much time […]

Doing things the hard way

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD I’ve always done everything the hard way. I’m not really talking about any one thing in particular. I’m talking about anything. I always seem to do things in the hardest way possible. By that I mean, in the most complicated, stressful and inconvenient way I could possibly […]

Forgiveness is the path to love

The Way I See It by DON WEST Okay girls and boys, we have discussed this particular matter here before, but apparently some of us are not getting the message.

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD Unless you have been living under a rock lately, you may have heard the many people discussing the “50 Shades of Grey” sensationalism that has been circulating all over social network sites, and among friends and housewives alike. Varying opinions regarding the book and movie content are […]

Wealth redistribution – also known as theft

The Way I See It by DON WEST Winston Churchill once quipped, “I contend that a nation which tries to tax itself into prosperity is akin to a man standing in a bucket and lift himself up by the handle.” No doubt, Churchill was more intelligent than anyone who serves in an elected office today. […]

Growing up Cajun

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY My first memories involve Cajun traditions and my relatives speaking in Cajun French,  so that we kids wouldn’t know what they were saying! Well, we knew some words, mostly ones not appropriate! When I think of Cajun words, the first one that comes to mind is the expression “sha”. In […]

Valentine’s, Schmalentine’s

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD Ah, l’amore! Love is in the air! Or is it?

Or as I like to call it, Single Awareness Day. Seriously. Why is […]
