Can We Agree On At Least One Thing, Even Two?

At such a heartbreaking time in our country, it’s been hard to write positively about many things. It’s been taking a lot more effort, both here and elsewhere online. Yet there are those who seem oblivious to what’s going on and are only intent on making life miserable for their … Read more…

Who Knew A Conference Room Solution Would Save Our Sanity?

As literally lifesaving as Zoom calls have been for millions of us this past year, Zoom calls still feel weird sometimes. We can also wind up with Zoom fatigue after too many calls. There are those relatives, friends and colleagues who hate the calls — fear them — so much … Read more…

The joys of technology during a pandemic and the curses of AB5

It’s been quite the adventure dealing with COVID-19 on top of site issues due to my host migrating files months ago. My Christian patience is exhausted. Due to all that, and California’s obnoxious AB5 law that has killed all freelancing in the state and is punishing even out-of-state clients with … Read more…

Don’t Blame Obamacare!

I’ve seen social media posts screaming that, under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (colloquially known as Obamacare), Medicare will triage sick people based on their age.

Women especially know agonizing pain because of childbirth or disabling, long-term problems with their reproductive system. Migraines or cancer or severe injuries can drop either gender to the floor. And the list goes on. Yet … Read more…

Still Alive

Yes, I’m still alive! In between life’s endless challenges, I’ve been taking copywriting courses. That’s copy-writing which has nothing at all to do with copy-righting. You can look it up if you’re confused. I also took on putting together a monthly newsletter for our congregation, which has been and is … Read more…

To Those Who Snoop and Spy on the Innocent

This open letter may sound a little contentious and most of us know contention comes from the father of all lies, that is, Satan. But I’m not a doormat and won’t act like one. In this case, I will not keep quiet and just practice patience. I have something to … Read more…

Incredibly Dangerous Behavior

I’ve never understood the game of one-upmanship.  It’s usually played by extremely insecure people, both men and women, while the rest of us roll our eyes.
