Great Video – Great Voice!

I posted this one already on my autism blog – but since the suggestion for UBC post #7 is to share a video, I’m going to share this one again – because it’s worth sharing again! Most people are aware that an unfortunate condition of autism is often difficulty speaking, and even mutism.  While I […]

Top 2 Best Desserts Ever

OK, this is definitely a fun post for my UBC post#6: my favorite top 2 best desserts ever!!! These are desserts I acquired recipes for, years ago, and have made frequently for special occasions.  I have since found these recipes in multiple places online, so I can share the links with you for the recipes […]

Have You Checked Out Amazon.com Lately?

Last time I participated in a blog challenge, I discussed Etsy.com as an interesting site people should check out (yes, I’m biased, since I have a shop there!) This time, though – for my UBC post#5 – I want to direct your attention to Amazon.com. What do you think of when you hear or read […]

Worthwhile Charity – Little Avery and SMA

While it may appear to be poor timing for me to be WAY behind in posting for the UBC – it’s interesting that the suggestion for UBC post#4 is to discuss a charity worth noting…and I only discovered THIS one yesterday! From the Families of SMA.org site: “Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is a motor neuron […]

It’s Like This – You Should Know Its Meaning

The suggestion for UBC post #3 was to discuss a subject about which we have some knowledge or expertise. I seem to have acquired an interest, and eventually a substantial amount of knowledge, in the area of language arts and writing.  This began early in my life – at least during junior high school (we’re […]

Blogathon Commencing!

Greetings, one and all! I really did NOT fall off the planet – just got sidetracked with a hectic month due to — no big surprise — getting behind on OTHER obligations! Problem is, I signed up to do the Ultimate Blog Challenge (UBC) prior to realizing how busy the month of April would be for […]

He Would Have Been 79 Today

My beloved Dad would have been 79 today (3-15) – but instead, he is celebrating his 9th year in Heaven. We used to celebrate our March birthdays together, along with my middle daughter, whose birthday is April 3rd. Most of the rest of the family have summer and fall birthdays. I’m thankful for my Dad […]

She Would Have Been 83 Today

My Mom would have been 83 today. She passed away on July 7, 2011,  only about 14 months after this picture was taken. Ironically, her little dog companion, Annie, also passed away a few months before Mom did. I mentioned these in a previous post ten days ago, on the six-month anniversary of her death, […]

Dreaming a Dream of Excellence

Since Martin Luther King’s Day just passed, with the usual reflection on his “I have a dream” speech, I wanted to discuss the topic here. I dream a dream of excellence. The basic definition for excellence is that it is “the state or quality of excelling or being exceptionally good” and demonstrating qualities or characteristics […]
