Tired of spoilt, rude reality stars and shows
Posted Tuesday, August 20, at 9:22 PM
I am so tired of reality shows with spoilt, rude and I am entitled attitudes. Good grief, I see children and teens with these hideous attitudes and realize oh yeah they are mimicking these so called 'stars'. I just gag when I see the Kardashians latest schemes, or a advertisement for Honey Boo Boo...

What happened to Children and manners?
Posted Friday, July 19, at 7:47 PM

I work at a large retail store and I have a lot of fun with our regular customers that come in and visit, shop and hang out. One of the huge sore spots in the day is children. Most of the children that come into our store are let loose and they run, yell, throw things, spill drinks and food not allowed in store.. and play in the toy isle alone...

Who was that awesome man , rescuing a hurt Kitten ??
Posted Friday, July 12, at 9:22 PM

After stopping at Sonic on North Main, I was coming back towards the square to go to work. I noticed a small grey kitten in the road near the dividing line to the lanes. She was curled up, head up, and a car just had passed over her, no movement. I knew she was stunned, so I stopped the car, emergency flashers on, and directed traffic away from her small body. As I did a large brownish truck stopped beside her on the other lane and put his flashers on...

Most of you know me, I hate to cook.

Lawnmower irritations
Posted Sunday, April 7, at 8:40 PM

Lawn mowers and I have a long history of love~hate. It all started back in the summer of 1974. I was mowing the lawn in Guam, and the darn thing would not stay started. In those days it seemed they were built heavier and more beefy. (may be my imagination)But, I digress, this day the lawn mower was Out to Get Me...

Kindle, Nook or Paper what is your preference?
Posted Sunday, March 31, at 7:31 PM

I love my Kindle. I received it from a former employer one Christmas and it really has it's perks. One is the newest "hardbacks" are available for 9.99 to 12.99 instead of the 24.99 pricing. I have seen the Kindle Fire and the Nooks that are out. My mom had a iPad and she LOVED it. My husband inherited it when Mum passed away and he loved it until it disappeared...

Hot Weather!! Please remember no pets or children left in cars!!
Posted Sunday, June 24, at 7:37 PM

I am always amazed at how many people really ignore the fact that heat is dangerous for animals and small children in closed autos. A pet can die of heatstroke within minutes of a car heating up inside. Cracking the windows don't help. Heatstroke in animals is anything over 104 degrees...

A turning lane on Main street ! ~About time!
Posted Friday, November 4, at 2:11 PM

I have always been drove nuts about the fact that this town had a very busy street that had no turning lane incorperated into the road when it was first built. It was always dangerous feeling to me when I had to turn left at any time. For someone who has been high speed rear ended (twice) I feel much safer having a turning lane. NOW to have people use them properly when they are installed will be the next step...
