5 Rules That Men Can Live By

To counterbalance the seriousness of my last blog:

Good advice from a friend. See below.
Five rules for men to follow for a happy life.

1. It's important to have a woman who helps at home, cooks from time to time, cleans up and has a job.

2. It's important to have a woman who can make you laugh.

3. It's important to have a woman who you can trust and who doesn't lie to you.

4. It's important to have a woman who is good in bed and who likes to be with you.

5. It's very, very important that these four women do not know each other.

A Simple Explanation of What Happened with Brown/Coakley

My blog has moved to  If you've enjoyed this blog, please check my new site out for other interesting comments on culture, travel, book reviews, and music.

"It is to me a new and consolatory proof that wherever the people are well informed they can be trusted with their own government; that whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them right." Thomas Jefferson Jan. 8, 1789

"The people" really began to pay attention when the Senate Nebraska and Louisiana deals were cut and the unions given a special deal with health care taxes. And with everybody in congress hiding behind closed doors working on a deal, no wonder the American people became suspicious. This is why it is so imperative for "the people" to stay informed and vote with knowledge and not emotion.

One last thing. Don't bash pickem up trucks and those that drive them. We, "the people", coughed up good money to help those manufacturers survive. The democrat elite made it sound like only hay seed chewing, ignorant yahoos drive pick up trucks.

If You Come to a Fork in the Road, Take It.

It's hard to top Yogi Berra when it comes to mixed metaphors. Another fun one is, "a nickle ain't worth a dime no more." Tell me about it Yogi.  Yogi did get me to thinking. I want to write about the proverbial "fork in the road".  Over the holidays we decided to take all of our old home videos and put them on Dvd's. I drove over to the little store that had done this for me in the past...closed. I drove to buy a little gift for a sick friend..the gift store...closed. Closed closed closed. These poor folks have, like Yogi suggested, come to a fork in the road and they had to take it. One direction...close. The other direction...close. This led me to ask my husband and my daughter about our "forks in the road." My daughter hasn't quite had to make those kinds of decisions, yet. But my husband and I surely have. We're talking major decisions that have a dramatic impact on your life. There's a line in one of the songs in the new movie Crazy Heart with Jeff Bridges (I will admit right now that I love Jeff Bridges) in which the main character sings something like this, I took a bad turn in the road and then every turn was bad bad bad.
