Fading Into Friday
It's been a long week. Monday was just ... bad. I ticked off our IT guy at work by opening up one of those d*%$ emails that as soon as you click on it, you think, "Oops." So I trotted over to his office, and he promptly yelled at me. Like I was a child. Or ...

Broken Mary: Putting the pieces of faith back together
I just finished reading " Broken Mary ." You should read it, too. When I was in high school, music was a HUGE part of my life. However, I depended on my friends being able to scout out the really good stuff: the Ramones, Bruce Springsteen, U2. I lived in a ...

Soccer, world peace and a few observations
I am not really a soccer fan. However, I am a huge fan of my husband, and he is a huge fan of soccer. I play along. A couple of years ago, we went to see two Premiere League teams (that's Britain's top soccer league) play in Ann Arbor, at what we Michigande...

Dammit. Did it again....
"Pushing Back the Darkness" - artist Gwen Meharg I did something stupid yesterday. (I did a lot of stupid things yesterday, but I'd like to focus on just one.) I saw this funny meme on FB. I have a friend who would also think it funny. It gently poked fun o...

Work Notes
I neglect my little blog here. Mostly, it's because I have a blog that I'm solely responsible for at work. And sometimes, it's just because I'm lazy. Today, I'm being lazy. Please go to my work blog and read a couple of things. The first one might get you p...

Do the Good

Learning to love and protect a little girl, a Child of the King
This little girl is five. She does not like the curls in hair, because it means sleeping in curlers, which are pokey and they hurt. She loves her new dress though, even though it's itchy. She's a little sad too, because her sisters both get to wear long yel...

If you're ill, don't shy away from God.
There was a time when lepers had to carry bells and loudly announce their presence, so that the "clean" people would have time to seek shelter from them. Illnesses were blamed in parental sins, or even farther back the family chain. When the AIDS epidemic f...

Peace, Lord, Peace!
I think we are all exhausted. The endless stream of shootings, fallen police officers, guns, political pukings .... I know I want to turn it all off. I can't - my job literally requires me to be on social media all the time. I cannot recall a time (in my li...

Can We Be Honest?
"No. You are not wearing that. It's hideous and that's the truth." Honesty is tough, isn't it? We lie to ourselves ("I'll get to that chore later.") We lie to each other ("Sure, that looks great on you!") We'd lie to God if we thought we could get away with...

Dr. Ruhlig and his staff are suberb! He has taken care of our family for 15+ years. They are great with kids, his rates are very reasonable, and it is easy to get in for emergencies.

This man frightened my daughter. He spent more time explaining his record-keeping system than attending to her. I would not recommend their services to anyone.

I have been here twice, both times for pedicures. I will not go back. The first time was okay. The second time I went, the man doing the pedicure seemed liked he could hardly be bothered. He was distracted the entire time, rarely spoke to me but engaged in conversation with many others in the shop. At one point, he tore off a part of my toenail. When I yelped, "That hurt!" he replied, "No, it didn't." Really?? Bad service, incompetent staff and unfriendly atmosphere. Nothing here to like.
