Writing Workshop

This past Sunday. I went to writing workshop at a local church. My two dearest friends and future bloggers came with me. I learned quite a few things. One is remembering to write weekly or monthly.  I need to keep you readers interested. I am going to go this way more so for awhile before putting out another book. I want to engage you my readers into active dialogues whether good or bad. All opinions are welcome. Let us not bully or be mean. We can all try to disagree without being ugly. I will talk about anything and everything....more

Transgender/Gay Bathroom Laws vs. Bathroom Laws against Blacks of 1950s

I have been reading about certain states and how they want transgender and gays to have their own bathrooms. Well call me crazy or weird but why? Maybe people do not realize that is discrimination and it is illegal. Back before the civil rights laws passed in the 1960s Blacks too had to have their own bathrooms as they were deemed perverted and diseased. It was wrong back then and it is wrong now. I have worked with countless gays and transgender individuals   over the years. I never felt threatened or that they were perverted. Most if not all are not out to hurt anyone....more
I have been reading a lot about this. And I don't agree with any of the laws, proposed or in ...more

Can This Country Deal with Refugees

The last few months I have heard about our government considering giving permission to refugees. I am on the fence . I mean I get that we are the land of the free and the brave. But as someone who has lived abroad half her life, I do not like what I am hearing. Violence, rapes and mass assaults are occurring in Europe and at a place I use to live. This is unsettling. The United States is already going through issues that are not being solved any time soon....more

Should Non Violent Felons get a Pardon?

Crime is a funny thing. Some individuals commit crimes everyday and some do one crime and live with the consequences for the rest of their lives.  Last night the Kentucky Governor pardon 197 felons. 10 of them were convicted murders. These 10 women had killed their husbands due to years of abuse. Granted I am sure these women felt they had no choice but I must say I was sad. Sad for the 28 year old young woman over 16 years ago who got hooked up with the wrong  people and made a bad choice.  This woman is now 44 years old. She has gotten her education. Kept a job....more

ThanksGiving and Being Single

Thanksgiving is tomorrow. It is time to gather with family and friends. Good food, stories, football and old movies. But as single woman I get the dreaded question "Why are you still single?" I hate that people feel the need to size me up and give me the reasons why. No I am not picky but I probably should be. No I am not scared of commitment. I honestly just have not met anyone that wants to be in a relationship or who is worthy of my awesome self. I believe I am a great catch and I just figure if it is meant to be things will happen. I am social but also love my alone time....more

Happy Veterans Day

Bring forth kindness today. Thank a Veteran. Buy them a meal. Give a hug. Smile. Offer a listening ear. Remember these men and women sacrificed so much for each of us. Let us also remember those that aren't with us and keep them in our hearts. Remember veterans families as they to sacrifice just as much to let us depend on their soldier . Thank you from the bottom of my heart and very proud Army Brat. ❤ Alison...more

When A Relationship Ends What Can You Do?

 Well Happy Wednesday! How is everyone? I took a few days off to rest my overthinking mind.  But I have had been thinking about a friend of mine who is recently dealing with a broken heart. Her long term relationship has ended. She is beside herself. A very strong woman who is the smartest girl I know. It leads me to question what do you do with a broken heart after a relationship ends? Here is my  list of things I have learned over the years when I too dealt with a broken heart: ...more

I Dated A Con Artist Part 4

Good Morning from chilly Tennessee. It is smelling like fall and the tobacco barns are causing havoc with my allergies. How is everyone? Any plans this weekend? Oktoberfest is here in the city. I think if you need warm beer and your fill of polka this is the place for you. After living in Germany most of my life I had my fill a long time ago. Plus it is just not the same in this country.So my last entry on Dating "Will": ...more
