January 13 :(

  Today, January 13, holds a couple anniversaries for me.  I remember the day of the Air Florida Flight 90 Crash in 1982 so well. We were living in the Metro DC area and our young son had just turned 2 in December.  Tom, my DH, worked in DC and I was never sure the route …

Dickensian

I’m loving this TV show from Britain! Dickensian is a British drama television series that premiered on BBC One from 26 December 2015 to 21 February 2016. The 20-part series brings characters from many Charles Dickens novels together in one Victorian London neighbourhood, as Inspector Bucket investigates the murder of Ebenezer Scrooge‘s partner Jacob Marley.   We are staying in a Residence Inn long …

Giving Thanks, Day 25: November 11, 2017

Giving thanks to our Veterans today   I’m not sure how Veterans Day turned into a Friday holiday and a day to sell stuff, but then, most every holiday has turned into a day for stores to run “sales”.  Possibly, the original intent was to give our veterans a break but it has sure morphed …

Giving Thanks, Day 13: October 30, 2017

  Today, and every day, I am thankful for coffee. Without it, I would have a daily headache and I’d have even less energy than I have now.   I first started drinking coffee when I had my first job as a waitress at a Hayes-Bickford in Boston, MA. This was a summer job. A …

Giving Thanks, Day 2: October 19, 2017

Today I am hugely thankful that the last major issue we had here was in 2013 when Tom had his heart attack.  That event caused me to start a whole new blog to post about our experiences.     Adapted from https://maryomedical.com/2013/02/08/the-beginning/   January 27, 2013 was our 40th anniversary.  DH called me and said he …

Things I Do as an Adult Because of Childhood Emotional Abuse | The Mighty

Most all these comments are way too close for comfort! It has been said that “no one escapes childhood unscathed.” But sayings like these can have an especially significant meaning for a person who has experienced emotional abuse as a child.

Nashville

Next week I’m going to a conference in Nashville for one of my jobs.  The last time – actually the only other time – I was there, it was for a Cushing’s Conference. There are two albums of photos on Facebook from that conference.  Part one and Part two (Duh!) It makes me sad just …

It All Started With a Train

I was reading this great article at https://www.thrillist.com/travel/nation/best-scenic-train-rides-us?wpsrc=thrillist and saw that the header image was a train we were on in 2007, the White Pass & Yukon Route out of Skagway, Alaska. The Thrillist folks said “As you cruise along the side of frighteningly sheer cliff-drops on this narrow-gauge railway, you can’t help but wonder who in …
