Hi everyone.

I have been very remiss in logging on here to chat and read etc. I have been going to jr college to get my prerequisites for the Occupational Therapy Program. I have finally been accepted into the program and start this Spring term. I am both excited and not a little daunted by it all.

I can only hope I have what it takes to succeed and flourish in this new adventure in my life.

Love to you all and lots of hugs.

I have been to two programs.

here is a post of an interview of one of his past programs.. truly inspiring.

In the busy shopping season before the holidays.. one has to plan ones route carefully to optimize ones itinerary. I was wisely heading for the next stop at a popular grocery store... for some reason the left turn light heading to my home was green and I was on know what I mean.  More >

I was traveling home from dropping of kids to school.. when I saw a young man with a backpack rushing with all his might to the bus stop. The bus pulls away just as he gets across the street. His obvious ire was perfectly expressed in his jumping down, throwing his back pack and shouting various colorful expletives...  More >

 Black Friday... seems to be so true. 7 comments
Saturday, November 29th 2008
I do SO know that the day after Thanksgiving is the first official start of the Christmas shopping season...

The death and injuries attributed to Black Friday at an New York WalMart are terrible. My condolences to those and their families. I just want to know where security was. I know here in my town they had plenty of police etc. to keep things relatively sane. Just makes me shake my head that something like this would need security measures in the first place. Whose idea was this Black Friday thing anyway? Are they freakin' nuts? Are WE nuts? My only answer is "most likely".  More >
