For those who enjoy my little confessional blogs from time to time.  This one is a humdinger. Have fun. 
So I'm sitting with a long-time friend recently, chatting about our mutual lives and people in them, and she alludes to something that causes me to glance up at her in astonishment. "You knew I had a boyfriend, right?" I burst into astonished, semi-amused laughter. "No, I did not know that." ...

Michelle Fields is what is wrong with this campaign and with much of America's youth in this election cycle. 
I didn't start out supporting Trump. I loved him in The Apprentice. But as a president? Not so much. (Although I have to admit, nearly anyone would be more competent and principled a leader, in my view, than Obama.) Now, as the campaign progresses, we have seen a lot of nonsense, ...

Info continues to come on about what really happened in Chicago... check out new photos I've added, and the link at end of article.  
I can't remember the last time I was this angry. It is after 9:00 pm now, and I know I won't be sleeping tonight. I am by nature a very calm person; I can occasionally be very direct, some might say blunt. I tend to appreciate the irony in Life and I like dark humor. Some get the humor, ...

Maybe this Trump thing isn't so "crazy" after all. The man is crazy like a fox, and the determination of the far Right to dethrone him, is very telling... 
Whatever your political affiliation, if you have any interest in politics at all, you must be having as much fun as I am watching this year's election process unfold. From the British Parliament taking time to debate the issue of banning Donald Trump from the country for using offensive language ...

If you miss this series, you're an Arseling!
In 878 A.D. (C.E.) a battle took place in a field in what is now southern England, which determined the very existence of the country. How odd it is now, to consider that of the few thousand fighting men and women present that day, some gave their lives for what they thought was the small ...

Just some food for thought.. 
I have a letter dated 1852. It is written by an ancestor - Reuben Peacher - to his son-in-law Zachariah Elkins and his daughter Nancy Jane. The young couple, who had been married some three or four years by then (she had been only fifteen, but he almost a decade older), were living only a few ...

This BLACK LIFE did NOT MATTER to protesters. They killed him for disagreeing with their political views.

Why do I fear that someday I'll be writing from a prison?

I discuss what makes a real short story . . . and what is a waste of a writer's time. 
Back when I was getting my creative writing/classic literature degree, we did a lot of short story writing. Within a class setting it made sense: professors were trying to assess whether we each understood how to develop a plot, characters, etc. and who has time to write a novel, ...

Someone handed me this book this morning, when I asked about it out of curiosity. I find Dr. Carson fascinating. I remember back when he was, as head of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, invited to be the guest speaker at the National Prayer Breakfast, and effectively ...

This is a small store that carries a lot. Great produce, etc. The problem is the way they treat customers. I have been going here for maybe 15-20 years. Especially in the past 5-10, the staff is extremely rude. Not all of them, but enough of them to add up to a lot of negative experiences. Around town, they have a rep for rude staff. Anything from "managers" standing around talking about their kids, when a customer stands there politely waiting for them to shut up the personal crap and answer a simple question, to cashiers in tears from stress of working there, to arguing with customers over simple issues, to lack of common speaking courtesy or even making eye contact with someone you're talking to. Recently one of their young staff - female - was out in light rain gathering shopping carts and her foul language at having to do it could be heard by all nearby. This morning, I'm talking to a customer service rep who is looking PAST me the whole time, as if I were his last concern on earth . It gets very old. Whomever does hiring should really think about assessing the manners and maturity of people they hire, and just how personable they are. When I walk in there, it's like walking into a grade school - just no sense of professionalism when dealing with customers..

It's always difficult to adjust to a new clinic/doctor after a move. I was attracted to Appleton's philosophy, and in a region where doctors are difficult to schedule, I decided to give it a try for a routine annual. From the minute I walked into the waiting room, I knew that I was in a different sort of atmosphere than your usual medical clinic. I am an older patient and have a long medical history with some serious complications. I have to say, I am really pleased with the level of care I am getting. It not only met my expectations but went beyond. I have been with Appleton a few weeks, and I'm amazed and already feeling the difference. I feel like someone cares about my health again, and is willing to work with me to see that I get and stay healthy; this is something I haven't experienced, really, in years. I was given an appointment with Dr. Boyer, who is likely the youngest, and the least experienced of the doctors on staff. Because of this, I was a bit nervous: I wasn't sure how much the health of an old lady would interest him! haha But my fears were unnecessary; he was thorough, kind, and knowledgeable. This level of care, combined with the financial benefit to the patient, means I would heartily recommend to anyone that they schedule an appointment with Appleton.
