Super Tuesday = Super Tense

It’s Primary time, and no matter what side of the political fence you stand on (perhaps even straddling it?) that means it’s time to start getting serious about voting for our nation’s next President. Oh, and the choices are just so overwhelmingly underwhelming this go ’round, aren’t they? Aside from a few very passionate folks,…

Educating Roxy…

A nation remembers – and still mourns.

Looking back six years… I was just coming out of the bathroom, I’d finished my morning “getting ready” routine and was ready to start the day. I came into the living room to find my then husband standing there, just staring at the TV as if in shock. I looked and at first thought I…
