Outside opinions in one’s relationship

I was just reading some tabloid trash kind of page linked off of msn.com about Maria Shriver possibly thinking twice about divorcing Arnold Swarzenegger (if you don’t know what their deal is, then you don’t need to read this because you’re not much for Hollywood tabloid stuff anyway). … Continue Reading “Outside opinions in one’s relationship”

‘Tis the season 2011 ~ Thoughts

Two things jump out at a person signaling the start of the Christmas holidays…. One is when you find yourself eating leftover turkey, turkey soup, turkey sandwiches, turkey casserole, etc., which obviously indicates the days after Thanksgiving and into December when the family is trying desperately… Continue Reading “‘Tis the season 2011 ~ Thoughts”

As the old saying goes, you can run but you can’t hide (I’m sure said saying came from a more profound moment than Sho Nuff in the Last Dragon…). But at any rate, checkmate Bin Laden! Got him on May Day 5/1/11.… Continue Reading “Bin Laden – Got him on May Day!”
