This has got to stop. Using the words, "retarded" and, "gay," as an insult to someone is hateful and offensive. We're smarter than this.

Author Ann Coulter has been using "retarded" as a slur, again. The latest came as she lashed out at an MSNBC interviewer, saying he won't have her on because, "he doesn't want any non-retarded conservatives" on the show.

I LOVE THIS GUY!

There are some who are completely able-bodied and won't work. But the ones we hear less about are those who do the best they can with what they've been given.

This elderly man was out shoveling snow, from his wheelchair, for his 85-year-old sister so she could get out to the church bus!

I found this article online, and wanted to share, as we start the new year with resolve to be better and do better!

This post may offend some readers, recruiters or not. But only because it's going to cut close to the bone for many.

And I don't care if I sound old-fashioned, because actually it's nothing to do with 'fashion' or 'generation'. It's got everything to do with basic good manners and respect for other people.

Dear girls,
I have some information that might interest you. Last night, as we sometimes do, our family sat around the dining-room table and looked through your social media photos.
We have teenage sons, and so naturally there are quite a few pictures of you lovely ladies to wade through. Wow – you sure took a bunch of selfies in your pajamas this summer!
