The new WordPress block editor is driving me a bit nuttier than I have been known to be. And I want to… Continue reading What Happened to Simple?

Who Am I?

Who am I, and why am I here? If I don’t know, then who does?  And I’m not certain I can answer either of those questions with clarity, insight, or honesty. The question arises as part of the WordPress University 101 course that I’ve enrolled in…again. The task for yesterday was to share who I… Continue reading Who Am I?

What Do You Think?

Okay, I need help. I’m playing around with my blog ‘style’ including colors, themes, and my logo, and your input would be nice. I do understand this is a ‘no win’ situation, because what you might like your neighbor might hate, but probably your neighbor isn’t reading this blog…so, just stay with me here. My… Continue reading What Do You Think?

It takes a bit of age in order to understand some humor. Translation: you have to be old to fully appreciate sentiments expressed by those who came before us. I have hanging in my house a poem in my Grandmother’s handwriting dated 1950 that apparently showed what she was thinking at the time. It reads:… Continue reading The Older the Better?

It Was Just a Cracker!

It was just a cracker. It wasn’t a big deal, until it was. Who would have thought that picking up a cracker from someone’s paper plate would create a scene that small children would be banned from viewing?
