Listen, Honey

I was finally made to switch over to the new Blogger today. I generally resist changes of this sort until I'm convinced it actually is a change for the better. I guess we'll see ... I will admit nothing appears to have exploded so far.
I've been meaning to post this. It is back from when we had the ice storm. It's a conversation between talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and
a woman in Austin named Gladys. It is worth listening to every bit of it; it will crack you up!

I am so upset by this injustice.
A Pakistani minister of social welfare, who also is a women’s activist, businesswoman, and mother of two, has been killed by an Islamic extremist. Why? For being who she is - - and refusing to wear a veil.
This kind of thing makes me so angry. I can't even begin to comprehend the mindset of someone who believes women are inferior. It's just plain warped.

New Headshot

I had a new headshot taken so I updated my Profile Page.

This is me at 30 and a half.
(The half sure has gone by fast, hasn't it?)

Updated Photos Link

I updated my Photos Link a bit. I realized I hadn't added any new pictures in almost a year!

I also received my first Valentine's Day card. It says, "Red Rover, Red Rover, send cute, financially stable, emotionally mature men right over!"

No Permanent Damage

It seems like everything has been happening all at once this past week. So long, quiet January! I guess life is back to normal!
This weekend, in addition to everything else, I'm doing some work on my house. I'm fairly proud of myself because so far I haven't permanently damaged any piece of my house or any part of my body. I still have a long way to go, but I'm hopeful. And, if this goes well, I may attempt some more adventurous projects. I was out of town so much last year that I didn't get to some things here so I'm hoping to catch up this Spring - you know, in all my spare time.

Article in Florida Family Living

An article of mine on Teaching Work Ethic is out now in Florida Family Living Magazine. Discussed in it is the importance of making sure that in today's world of conveniences, we still teach our kids the value of labor. Also mentioned is that boys seem to be lagging behind girls in this regard.
