"The thing about sharing things to social media is that it’s actually really hard to correctly guess which of those things will be 'popular' or spark a reaction of some sort. The photo above is an example of that.

I took the photo Friday night…"

"The worst thing for a blogger is to not have anything to say. The second worst thing is to have things to say, but no will to do so. I’ve been facing the second problem for quite awhile now, and today I finally understand why that is, thanks to a fellow blogger."

"There’s a reason why people often talk about recovery from accident, illness or other health related condition as a “journey”, and not a single event.

"The video above is an ad, and well worth watching because it’s so well done and because its message is so important. The bank that made it said in their Facebook post: “Holding hands. It’s one of the most basic gestures of love there is. Yet in 2017 it remains difficult for some people.” They’re right.

When I shared the Facebook version on the AmeriNZ Page, I said…"

"This weekend had one job on the list: Re-staining the deck outside our house. We’d had it washed recently, and due to delays in that caused by weather, it wasn’t possible to get the job done. This weekend, we did."
