My favorite part of the awards shows is the In Memorium. Is that Sick? Probably. But after all is said and done, I like to remember, who I forgot to remember that I forgot. What's wrong with that? However, I always try to find people that were left out and this year's Oscar's was no exceptions.

Bah Humbug! Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Do you care? Are you excited? Or do you just wish it would go away. In all the conversations I have had about this, most people either don't care one way or the other. OR they dread it.

Oh Prince Harry! He and a bunch of friends were in Vegas for a little fun, and may have gotten into a little more "fun" than he anticipated. The chums all went down to the hotel bar and found some girls who were more than happy to join the Royal and his buddies in the VIP suite for a game of strip billards.  Yes, the prince ended up in the buff, along with several others and of course, some photos were taken and ended up on the Internet.

Why is it when someone else has a fear of say, Spiders, we consider it an irrational fear, but when it's US, it's a perfectly normal, legitimate fear!

I never considered myself to be "phobic" in any way, but as I get older, I think I'm becoming moreso.

While traveling home from vacation in New England. I got stuck on a completely full flight for an hour before it took off. Plus, the air conditioning wasn't on and we were all dripping. Lovely. I kept fiddling with the round fan thing over my head but could barely feel anything.

Why is it always the middle of the night that I get the urge to write? The wind is howling tonight, but that usually puts me to sleep. When I was little, I loved to stay up and look out the window at the lightning flashing thru the grape vines in the neighbor's backyard, and over our barn at the back of the property. I wish storms weren't so destructive. I feel guilty for enjoying them, knowing that people have been hurt by them.

My Mom and I may live far apart, but we stay in touch. Even when there is nothing much going on, we have an ongoing poetry game going on. That may not seem like much fun to you, but my mother's mother was an award-winning poet and so is MY mom.

When I was a junior in high school, I had one of the highlights of my life when I was offered the role of Maria in a community theater production of "The Sound of Music."

I had always been active in musical theater, but this was the ultimate! I mean, my all-time favorite movie was "The Sound of Music." I used to run around the house singing all the songs witha pillow case on my head like a nun's habit.
