Candy is Dandy, but Liquor is Quicker!  I'm always amused by one-liners.  Maybe you've heard this one before... it's new to me.  A Portland REALTOR popped by my office to share some information about one of his listings.  We were in the middle of an office meeting, so it was perfect timing for a ...

The Dirty Little 4-Letter Word.  It's not uncommon for people to spew four-letter words when emotions run high and patience run low.  When it comes to this dirty little four-letter word, there might be a little more brewing (than spewing) beneath the surface.  MOLD has become the death knell of m...

Checks for Chicks.  It's not every day you get to see the world come alive through a peephole.  These big brown gorgeous eyes tell a story.   Every year, for as far back as I can remember... my family and I looked for special ways to share holiday cheer with those less fortunate.  We made hot mea...

The Tutu Project.  I'm a sucker for causes and this one is exceptional.  It's about a man who loves a woman... and so much more. When Bob Carey's wife, Linda, was diagnosed with breast cancer, Bob decided to do something extraordinary.  That's where the pink tutu comes in.  Bob took off his cloth...

The boy who has a dream.  Young people inspire me.  They have a zest for life and a willingness to pursue their dreams at all costs.   Some say it takes guts.  Others might call it determination.  I believe it's a combination of both along with a healthy dose of inspiration. There's someone who k...

Oh Baby, It's Cold Outside!   I woke up this morning to a bright light of snow beaming through my window.  I caught Old Man Winter sneaking around in the middle of the night, and boy did he have a little surprise in store for me. My pipes are frozen and I have no water.  Silly me, I should've kno...

You're not alone!  Sometimes, life gives us a heavy heart.  Sadly, I lost a close relative and a dear colleague unexpectedly during the Thanksgiving holiday.  The sorrow pill is never easy to swallow.  I don't like funerals.  I suppose I'm not alone there.  I've always said that when it's my time...

Need a LOL Pep Talk?!  Well, here's one that not only made me smile real big... it totally cracked me up.  I'm convinced, we need to start thinking more like a kid again!  The pure joy and youthful innocence is hysterical and therapeutic! I would vote for him for President.  More corn dogs in the...
