People are Strange but Families are Weirder

If you ever thought that people are strange, you could be quite right, but truly, families are a whole weirder!

Have you ever looked at your family and wondered if you were adopted?  Maybe even secretly hoped that you might be adopted?

The funny thing is, as a child, your family is the only family you know and to you, your family is perfectly normal …

Watching Lydia Lassila compete in the Women’s Freestyle Skiing Aerials event at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics on Thursday night made me realise that the there is a difference between winners  and champions.

Winners take home the medals, but champions live in a class of their own and do not need the medals to prove it.

Read Between The Lines

Love, romance and relationships are all very funny things; we all have different ideas about what they are and different expectations of how they should be.

Raed Between The Lines

  • How do you identify love?
  • How do you tell the difference between infatuation and true love?
  • What does it mean to be romantic?
  • How do you express love and romance?
  • What makes a good or bad relationship?
  • Are you both on the same page in this relationship?
  • Is there ever a right time to say “I love you”?
  • And if so, when is the right time?

Howl at the Moon

Howl at the Moon

The full moon that comes around once a month (twice a month when it’s blue) is a beautiful sight.  It does more than just shine brightly in the night sky, it controls the tides and maybe it even influences people and their behaviours.

Please Mr Centipede, Knock First!

Mr Centipede, before you enter

A simple knock would be polite

Just a courtesy to say

That you have an invite

But no, you barge right on in

And it is me who gets the fright

Simple Things

Simple Things

(wikispaces.com)

It is often the simplest of things that bring us the greatest of joys … simple things like a smile from a stranger, you know the sort of smile I mean, that genuine smile, one that creates a silent but infectious giggle within you, leaving you with nothing else to do but smile at the very next stranger you pass and often keeps you smiling for the rest of the day.

What Do You Envy?

I envy (and I mean, I am truly jealous of) anyone who has naturally beautiful, long and strong fingernails.

Country Girl (Bush)

You know how the saying goes about being a country girl.  You can take the girl out of the country but you can’t take the country out of the girl.  Usually it is referred to as being about a boy, but this is a story about me and my own experiences.  I am a girl (a not so young girl anymore but all the same a female) so I can’t write this story within the context of being a boy …

Shower

Delightful girl that Melissa, probably her first job since leaving high school.  She repeats herself.  I tell her again that I have no power and that I am dying for a shower.  She repeats herself.  Maybe she is probably wondering why I cannot have a shower.  Instead of asking about that, she interrogates me about checking all my circuit breakers, wants to know what happened.  Well it’s simple, Mother Nature happened and it happened about 16 hours ago & to be precise, it was about 16 hours without power ago!
