The glass is half empty

OK, OK. Enough is enough. Why don't we all just give up. We just can't afford to go on. Life is becoming too hard. The glass is half empty. 

I made the mistake of commenting on a blog where the writer was complaining about the price of gas. I did not give any rationale for the high price nor did I complain about it. What I did was even worse. I offered a few ideas as to how to cope with the price. I listed a few ways to offset the price. A bit of creativity. I also tried to support the person with a bit of optimism. You know, chin up and all of the that stuff. Wow! What a mistake.

I ended up being attacked. I was called a jerk and a money grubber. I even got accused of being George Bush's boyfriend. I was informed that I am greedy just like Exxon and all of the other oil companies. I was told that I should think more about others than myself. Wow.

Lesson for today: Never tell a negative person that you hope their day gets better.

Spring, winter?

What do you mean 35 degrees and very windy? A chance of snow? But it was 80 degress and sunny all weekend. Well at least the lawn is mowed. Here in southern Idaho you never really know what the weather is going to be like. It seems like even… more

Become a teenager again

Have you ever spent any time talking to a teenager? Do you remember when you were a teenager? Can you remember some of the goals that you set for yourself back then? If you ask any teenager what their future holds in store they will respond with… more

I just discovered a new way to travel. Forget standing in long security lines while the person in front of you gets x-rayed from every angle. Forget taking off your shoes and then trying to put them back on while you gather up all of your stuff… more
Spring has sprung

April 15th. I love that day. Why? It is the day that I get to pay for all of the hard work that I have put in all year. Even though I have been paying the government all year, I get to pay them some more. And why not? I know that my government… more
I feel naked

Oh no! The unthinkable has happened. For the last 10 years I have not been in this predicament. I feel naked. I feel helpless. I do not even want to go out in public. What if something happens? My cell phone battery is dead. Rather it will not… more
