Voting – Do you have a plan?

Voting – Do you have a plan?

I have always encouraged people to vote, I don’t care who you vote for as long as you vote. A couple years ago (2018) I was asked by a friend, what have you done about it. I responded, “I vote and I encourage others.” He said, “Posting on Facebook and Twitter doesn’t do anything. Are … Continue reading

Hindsight is 20/20

Hindsight is 20/20

I saw this Tweet this weekend shortly after the passing of RBG and was gobbedsmacked – OMG YES! (I do have a fun project to share at the end.) Of course I was shocked and saddened by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, I personally equated it to losing a third grandma this year. … Continue reading

Sometimes You Get Bamboozled

I consider myself a person with a good head on her shoulders. Can point out a fraudster almost immediately, I have worked in hospitality for over 20 years and you get good at this. I have over the years helped catch a Travelers Check scheme, credit card fraud, and numerous fake bills. I would say … Continue reading

My New Living Room

Seven years ago we had a minor issue with moisture (okay it was huge and we ended up ripping out all the carpet). We then had to treat the floor and the walls for mold it was a mess and I didn’t have a living room for a month. Over that time period I found … Continue reading

Grandma’s Zoom Meeting

I thought long and hard about the title for this post, I mean Funeral Zoom (sounded a little depressing) was what it was named, then I thought why not title it a Zoom Meeting because I have a tendency to go off on tangents (like most Zoom Meetings). I am sitting here typing waiting for … Continue reading

Saying Good-Bye in a Pandemic

Saying Good-Bye in a Pandemic

There are many things outside of a global pandemic that have really made 2020 be like damn, what the hell man?  My Grandma Helen passed in January before I made it home, I unfortunately was not able to change my plane tickets and I was in the process of starting a new job.  I worked … Continue reading

A New Normal…

Many things can be said of this new normal, the thing that sticks with me the most is the lack of touching. No hugs (I miss hugs – I am a hugger), nobody wants paper maps or brochures and people will steal hand sanitizer (not lying on this one – liquid gold, I tell you) … Continue reading

Back to Work…

Well sort of. I received a call from one of the local tour companies asking if I wanted to help them out a couple days a week. I figured why not as long as I still qualify for unemployment I will do it. So this week coming up I am working a couple days. I … Continue reading
