To be clear, I’ve tamed my gloating ways, but this, I couldn’t resist.

This WWYDW was seriously so much fun, and educational.  I could tell by the responses on Twitter, and the comments on the post, people’s age differences.  It was extremely clear to me the people who had “been there done that” and have matured into knowing that gloating is undignified.  I couldn’t agree more, which is […]

Isn’t it disgusting that the kids of Stoneman Douglas HS are being bullied on the internet, by adults?

Everyday when I wake up, since last weeks mass shooting, I tell myself that today I’m going to keep my feelings, my thoughts, my anger about what happened to those kids in Florida to myself.  That it’s sort of a “enough” now, I can’t blog about it every single day.  I mean I know plenty […]

What is Canada doing right that our mentally ill don’t have access to guns?

Today was a regular day for me and my family.  Our eldest enjoyed a day off and ran errands in Toronto, some for her, some for us.  Our youngest spent another Monday, from 8am-10pm in college, learning.  Our middle, who is working for us at the moment accompanied me on some errands, and Yannick rode […]

How can a government manage to pass laws about who people can/cannot love, but not who people can/cannot kill???

I find it absolutely fascinating that a government who can manage to repel a law put in place to ensure that somebody who is mentally unwell getting their hands on guns be more difficult was one of the very first things #45 and his cronies did.  Like it happened faster than fast, as did taking […]

I say 18, you say 8, isn’t one school shooting ONE TOO MANY???

I stand corrected from yesterday’s post; there have ONLY been eight school shootings in 2018.   THIS FROM SNOPES:  Hashmi and others who called the statistic into question had a point. When we looked into it, we found that although all the incidents involved the firing of weapons on school grounds, some bore little resemblance to […]

How is a parent meant to carry on when their child is ripped away from them???

I wanted to post on Tuesday…we had witnessed a pretty disturbing sight on Sunday night, but the more I thought about sitting down and writing about it the more my heart broke open.  So I prayed, and meditated about it and thought; “ok, perhaps I’ll write about it on Friday, after my WWYDW, and follow […]

Why is it you can be the “whole package” but still not find a decent partner???

I’ve blogged on this topic a few times, I would post about it more often except I’m not exactly sitting in the right spot to do so.  Meaning, I’ve been with my man, in seventeen days, for thirty years, save for a brief separation where we both dated other people, which was fourteen years ago.  […]

Do people really think the only problems I have in my life are rats, and a tree?

The cool thing about writing a blog, and having a dual step moderation on comments is that shitty comments don’t just make it up on the site, for which I’m very thankful.  Some people have challenged me saying that I only post comments, interact, or tweet with people who share the same opinion or ideals […]
