 Garden of Joy

I have a 1/2 acre garden that is fun to grow each year.  It has 144 hills of summer squash, 144 hills of winter squash,  watermelons and  tomatoes. We give 2 ton of vegs away to churches and friends in need. At 6AM in the morning it is cool outside and has been over 100 […]

 Millionaire Fortunes & Children

Maybe its just me that’s very skeptical, but yet again a multi millionaire states that he wont be leaving any of his fortune to his children, Gordon Ramsey made this statement a couple of weeks ago, he says his children  will have to make their own way in life to appreciate money and the realities of […]

 Do our children owe us……..

 Kindness

I’ve always tried to be kind.  I’ve not always been successful.  I taught my children to be kind.  They’ve not always been successful.  Put yourself if another’s shoes I’d say.  Don’t judge.  You never know what someone is going through, has been through.  Give the benefit of the doubt. Starting out with this divorce we […]

 On my own.

Was a single parent for 12 years. Worked night-shift, to be home for kids to get them off to school. Got little sleep and lost my social life.. I have never recovered. Just moved into a senior community, and like it here. I still have trouble being around the people in the clubhouse. Everybody has […]

 Vandwelling

I’ve been interested in the concept for many years. I had envisioned touring Canada in an RV in the late 90’s. My hobby is genealogy and at the time I had a desktop. I figured an RV would be nice to hold all the books that I use for research, and the computer tower and […]
