Let Me Ask You A Question – 9/24/17


Let me ask you a question:

Is it me or should more people be concerned about the North Korea situation?  

Lazy day.

Lucky Otters Haven


It’s gorgeous outside today (though unseasonably hot) but for some reason I have no energy at all.  It’s not lack of sleep, since I slept for about 11 hours and woke up late.   I’m too tired to even go for a drive.   Maybe it’s my SAD kicking in.  Sometimes I get more fatigued than depressed when that happens.

So I’m just going to read for a while and then maybe take a nap.  After that,  I’ll spend some time on this blog.  Maybe I’ll write a post or maybe I won’t, but it’s time for some organization.   I made a new category last night (Politics and Trumpism) since I have so many related posts now and they need to be in their own section!

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Daily Observations – 9/24/17


Yesterday I was entering a store while a lady was exiting.  I opened the door on the right and began to enter as she took a step through the same door I had opened.  I politely said to her “enter to your right, exit to your right” and she had no idea what I was referring and gave me the stink eye.  I guess she thought I was holding the door for her, which I would have done gladly had I been exiting with her.

My observation has to do with her getting upset at me and why she got upset.  Was it that I pointed out to her that she was exiting the store through the enter door?  Was it that she thought I was being a smarty pants?  I’m not sure, but she decided to exit through the wrong door and made myself and the 5 people behind me wait as she did so. I wonder how someone can see the exit door is clearly free to be used, yet still want to exit through the enter door while many people are entering?  Oh, I failed to mention that her hands were not full nor was she pushing a cart.

Apparently everyone isn’t aware of the “rules” of traffic flow.

A friend recently posted this list on his fb page. As the mother of three beautiful girls I thought it would be fitting to create a list of “Rules For My Daughter”.

Rules For My Son: 

  1. Never shake a man’s hand sitting down.
  2. There are plenty of ways to enter a pool. The stairs ain’t one.
  3. If you hunt and kill you clean and grill.
  4. In a negotiation, never make the first offer.
  5. Act like you’ve been there before. Especially in the end zone.
  6. Request the late check-out.
  7. When entrusted with a secret, keep it.
  8. Hold your heroes to a higher standard.
  9. Return a borrowed car with a full tank of gas.
  10. Don’t fill up on bread.
  11. When shaking hands, grip firmly and look him in the eye.
  12. Don’t let a wishbone grow where a backbone should be.
  13. If you need music on the beach, you’re missing the point.
  14. Carry…

Happy 83rd Birthday Leonard Cohen


Today is the 83rd birthday of the singer, songwriter, poet, truth teller, and genius who is quoted as saying “Everything has a crack in it, that’s how the light gets in.” Leonard Cohen. His music and thoughtfully chosen lyrics resonate through generations around the globe. I find myself still, listening, every time I unexpectedly encounter one of his songs. I have stared blankly at the bakery display in a Starbucks, my mind wrapped around his words, sliding between them, memorizing their placement. The world is a better place because he was in it and still feels the loss that he has left.

NAME: Leonard Cohen
OCCUPATION: Singer, Songwriter, Poet
BIRTH DATE: September 21, 1934
DEATH DATE: November 7, 2016
PLACE OF BIRTH: Montreal, Canada
PLACE OF DEATH: Los Angeles, California

12 Greatest Phone Apps That Everyone Should Have – Level Up Stud

Level Up Stud

On average I spend 65 minutes on my phone and I unlock it 70 times a day. That’s about 5% of my day spent on my phone. Clearly I’m unproductive and I should be putting that precious daily hour towards a goal.

That’s not the case. Unlike most people who “invest” nearly a $1,000 on a phone, I treat my phone as an asset. It’s something meant to advance my life, not occupy or inhibit it.

(If you don’t believe your wasting your life on your phone, download the Quality Time app to see for yourself)

But enough of the know-it-all cheekiness. Here are the 12 excellent apps everyone should

Fearless Friday


Only 8 more days!!  Swim for MS, is fundraiser, to assist the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America in their efforts to provide services.  Some of the services MSAA is providing to the people effected by the recent natural disasters are finding an MS specialist, accessing patient-assistance programs, or locating emergency services for those in the areas affected. They do not provide any type of direct financial assistance.

By supporting my efforts in Swim for MS, you will assist MSAA to provide vital programs and services to all members of the MS community, including cooling accessories for heat-sensitive individuals; assistive equipment like wheelchairs, walkers, and grab bars; MRI funding (which I was fortunate to take advantage of); educational videos and publications; a toll-free Helpline; a Lending Library; and much more! Here is a link to their website if you would like to know more about the specific programs that MSAA provides free…

Sharing Fall…

Cyranny's cove


She stood at the border of Autumn, hesitating. Sitting quietly on a rock, looking at the green foliage behind her, then peeking at the warmer colors, melting into the leaves, announcing the upcoming Fall.

The choice wasn’t hers, and she knew it. Once you came this close to Fall, you fell into the switch of seasons, wether you really wanted it or not. Oh, some tried to hang on to the last untouched Summer branches on their path, but they only got painfull scars on their palms, reminding them that Life was an unstoppable clock…

Tic, toc… Tic…

She was ready to let herself be sucked into Fall, and its new smells, its new sceneries. She was ready to listen to the cracking leaves under her soles, ready to see them let go, ready to see the geese fly South quacking loudly in the sky.

Different times, different realities. But…

These aren’t new symptoms they come and go. I just wish I knew why. I guess I wish I knew why with a lot of MS related things. Spasticity has been bad this week. I woke up Monday morning, or I should say didn’t sleep well Sunday night from pain. I always describe the
