I called them Beauty and the Beast.. a contrast in appearances but don’t let that fool you, they are both talented! Although I never heard of the man before. I don’t get into celebrating St. Patrick’s Day even though I have a few drop of Irish blood in my veins! I grew up an Irish Rover’s groupie! Hey! I was a preteen of the late 60’s and a teen in the early 70’s!
Here’s best wishes to you in 2018. I hope you find a path back to your true self!
Happy Groundhog Day! The University of Manchester Museum explores the origin of this annual winter tradition, which has its roots in European folklore

AS SOMEONE WHO LIVES IN PENNSYLVANIA.. I find that Groundhog Day is NOT very good for the old Groundhog! My cousin probably blew away over a dozen groundhogs on his property because they eat his garden vegetables. I think life sucks for the poor caged overweight varmint too!
My daughter often corrects me on Facebook when I post something that isn’t politically correct, usually associated with some news app. You see she’s a teacher and so is her husband and if they are NOT PC they can get in trouble with their jobs and my daughter always was that way anyway. I on the other hand tend to blurt out whatever thought is running through my head. Sometimes I feel like SHE is my mommy.. and I’m a little freaking child.. UGH! Now being publicly corrected by my daughter sucks big wang if you know what I mean in my own unpolitctally correct manner!
I don’t need to be corrected dammit! Let me express myself! I am a flawed human being! So what! So is everyone else!
My dear daughter complains about me being online when I visit, and not playing with my grandchildren during their awake periods. Funny when she was a kid she often played alone when I was busy. Well it’s funny when I see her sitting on the sectional with her iphone in hand, her eyes glued to the screen as her own kids watch TV beside her. So it’s just the Pot calling the kettle black. Then her daughter, my granddaughter is always glued to some screen during the day if she can get away with it. Are we all obsessed with this bombardment of information and music and movies?
Christmas is over! Thank God! It’s so commercialized! I have a Bah Humbug! feeling about it. I’d much rather just have a nice family meal and forget about gift giving! But then, it’s NICE to receive a gift if you really need something and can’t afford it, but why do I, with my limited funds have to buy a gift for someone who’s LOADED? Someone who can buy themselves whatever they want? I on the other hand NEED things, and not frivolous things but things like supplements, eye drops, soap, dry mouth wash etc? I need a good haircut too. So my cousin gave me $50.00 in a card and I’m getting that haircut and those personal care items! And I won’t feel guilty for getting them because my husband didn’t get a gift like that from his friends or relatives. I’m not sharing my money.. I feel greedy, but hell he goes out and buys FISH for his aquarium every time I turn around!
Did THAT get your attention? Lets talk about SEX in a novel… It certainly adds interest and may make a young and horny reader want to initiate sex with their significant other right? Well I read 2 novels a week, and most of them have at least one sex scene. Most novels have quirky people in them because writers have to make their characters interesting don’t they? Or we will be bored out of our gourd and stop reading! Right? I know from experience Irish characters will have red hair and some version of green or maybe even blue eyes. German ones might be blonde haired and blue eyed but not always, as is the Nordic ones. But many times younger writers who still have some sort of sex drive will add a few steamy sex scenes. At my age (59) and with the typical assorted health problems (Pelvic Organ Prolapse) I just don’t feel sexy or want sex like I used to. Can you older women relate? Maybe your husband has health problems also, and he lost his desire, who knows… All I know is the woman in these books have a much wilder sex life than I ever had even when I was young and horny myself.. (chuckle), but sometimes I skim over the sex scenes. Yes I’ve been there and done that probably or possibly, but I don’t go there and do that anymore.. Ugh! Yes of course it would be nice to have a sex drive ad have conventional sex again but in my case (POP) there are obstacles to that urge, if I had an urge.. ha ha. Anyway I just wanted to say that I will continue to read these books, even with their steamy sex scenes because the romantic and relationship obstacles are interesting to read. I enjoy a good plot, but some writers keep writing the same plot and change the setting and the characters are all basically the same! BORING! Yes give me your quirky ones, I feel I am quirky also and I relate. WE all like to feel we are unique and a unique character is relateable is it not?
NOTE: Spellcheck assures me relateable is not a word and gives me no suitable word choice to correct it! Can’t they update the app? I get “Relate-able”!
