Politics

So I know most of us watch the news and see all those future running contenders for President. It was reported it is 18 months until election and a new President takes over. Which means our life will be saturated with political  ads and lots of Donald Trump.  I personally think on a business side he is smart but his mouth overloads his big behind....more

Why the Confederate/War Flag has brought out hate?

The church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina has brought the issue of hate and the confederate flag to light once again. The State of South Carolina has been one of those states that has endured hate more so than most other southern states. Second is Mississippi and third is Tennessee. I believe the flag is not the issue but the hateful and racist individuals behind the flag.  The flag has come down, removed from stores and possibly other places....more

Why I have stopped dieting

Maybe it is the upcoming 44th birthday or the fact that I really love myself and my body. I have decided to stop dieting. I personally am no fun to be around when I diet. I have decided to make better food choices without giving up being hungry all the time. I feel like if I want a coke today I will does not mean I will drink one everyday but I should have what I want. I am so sick of society and social media saying women that are bit bigger or excessively bigger are a death trap. I do not believe this to be true. My job keeps me on my feet up to 8 hours at least four days a week....more

To Blog or to write a second book?

So I have thinking, losing sleep and made decision. I will be blogging about books as this is where my love is first and foremost. Honestly when I put my small book out about losing my mother it was more for me and to see if I could do the writing thing at all. Honestly, my writing skills are not that great and when it comes to promoting other authors I think this is where I am best at. My genre of reading goes from Erotica to mystery. I also love historical thrillers and human interest stories. I like books that make you think. I encourage everyone to read....more

What I have learned from the Ferguson Case

The Ferguson, MO case has really shocked this country. A police officer killed a young man that was unarmed. That said young man, Michael Brown, had committed a crime but was not made known to the officer. Somewhere something went wrong. The facts even today just do not make sense. Regardless, the situation was mishandled and this country is once again at a racial divide that the those who fought hard some fifty years ago hoping it would never repeat itself. Our police as a whole in this country is out of touch with communities....more

Writers Block

Lately probably since right after Christmas I have not written much if at all. I have been reading alot and enjoying just the books I have purchased. I thought the writers block would just be a few days and not nearly two months. I finally pin pointed that in my regular job I was letting one co worker get under my skin and ruin my mo jo. This makes me sad and upsets me. I let this one person creep up in my head and set a tone that was clearly a sign of depression. She is that person that if she is not happy. No one is happy. I just realized in the last few days....more

Things that bug me and why it won't change.

Do you all have things that just bug you. You tell said individuals not to do said things around you. But still they seem to do them just to bug you. So I thought I would give a list of things that bug me.: 1. I have red hair and it is curly. Please stop asking if it is real and can you touch it. That is rude and why must you keep asking that dumb question. 2.  Yes I am tall. Yes I wear a size 12 and Yes it is hard to find shoes sometimes. Depending on brand and style. Quit saying "Man your feet are huge."...more

Freedom of Speech : JeSuis Charlie

It is really sad that a bunch of cowardly men hiding behind religion decided to kill innocent people over cartoons in a newspaper. Granted maybe what they wrote was not in the best light but it was not intended to hurt or cause anyone any harm. We writers have to write what we feel is important to each of us. If it was me, I would keep writing and keep telling the world what the enemy is doing. Whether it is a standard article or a cartoon....more
