Corruption

Is anyone surprised that corruption exists?  Is anyone surprised there is an elite class who use their riches and power for their own benefit, many times to the detriment of others? Is anyone surprised many politicians  and celebrities who lecture everyone else about social injustices and global issues, are hypocrites?  They are protected by bodyguards…

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…

God Bless America!

I believe in God and I believe I have a right to say that. I am a citizen of the United States of America and I am proud to be an American. This country has been built on the diversity of its people and the hard work of generations. What distinguishes us from others is…

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…

I Wrote a Best Seller!

I love to write.  I blog, I tweet and I wrote a book.  I know people read my work, as I can see from my followers, subscribers and those who have purchased my book.  I do not have the notoriety however, to make my book a best seller.  I always thought the toughest part would be writing.  Sitting…

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…

Japan

No one can watch the television reports of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan and not be affected by the devastation.  It is hard to comprehend the scope and magnitude of what has happened there and as the world steps in to help them, one must wonder, how do you recover from it?  How do you…

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…
