National Cancer Suvivors Day

Today is National Cancer Survivors Day.  A day to celebrate those who have fought cancer, those who have lost their battle, those who have waged the war on this deadly disease and pretty much anyone who has been affected by it.  When you think about it in those terms, today is a day to be…

Shame on Good Morning America

September is quickly coming to an end and even before the last day of childhood cancer awareness month is over, 'pink' is already being promoted in the media. Magazines, advertisements, television and everywhere I look I am overwhelmed with 'pink'. I understand raising awareness for breast cancer, I don't understand the total lack of support…

Help! The country has lost its way and who cares? We have a government that spends and spends with no regard to balancing the budget or lowering taxes. We now learn the IRS which is persecuting and singling out conservative groups is using taxpayer money for parties, conferences and 'swag bags'. If I ran my…

Pinterest

https://pinterest.com/teamhoneysuckle/ I love Pinterest! The latest and greatest social media craze since Facebook or Linked In has me hooked. Like a vision board from 'The Secret' Pinterest lets me post and organize all my favorite and beautiful things. I have found wonderful recipes, gotten great wedding ideas and have pinned lots of pretty items. I…

The ‘Devolution’ of the United States

The role of parents to teach, guide and nurture their children is an ongoing process and never a perfect art.  There is no book of instructions that comes with a newborn baby so we are left to our own devices to raise our children.   The way we were brought up is the basis for what we do with our own children. …

Facebook and social networking…

Facebook, MySpace and Twitter are just some of the largest social networking sites available.  Social networking has reconnected millions of people, sparked an industry and also has exposed people to public scrutiny as is evident with the latest news.  Electronic communication has brought about a new age of information overload, and with it a generation of people…

Such a ‘Weiner’

I have heard too much.  Anthony Weiner with his infamous 'Weiner' photo and the subsequent Twittergate has taken over the media and I personally am sick of it.  It now seems on a weekly basis we are dealing with politicians who have done wrong.  Barely off the Arnold scandal of having a love child and the…

Responsible Behavior and Politics

Parents know the lessons of childhood are very often tough to teach.  Saying 'no' to a little one who wants a toy or candy at that very second can be heartbreaking.  As a parent however, these tough times are the lessons that help shape the character of our children.  No, is not necessarily a bad thing…

I am tired of Charlie Sheen

What is wrong with us that we now have become a society of 'watchers' spending our time viewing the bad behavior of others and thinking that is entertainment? Reality TV of families needing help with everything from cluttered houses, unruly children and pregnant teens, our level of entertainment has hit an all time low.  News is no longer…

The negative media…

I got a call today from an automatic dialer urging me to vote while bashing the opponent.  It really doesn't matter whose party it is left, right or in between.  The assault upon our senses is overwhelming.  The anger and dissension amongst people is palpable and frankly I have had enough.  I am tired of all…
