Pros and cons of Our President, Donald Trump – My Thoughts

Pros and cons of Our President, Donald Trump – My Thoughts

Today I am using one of my own blog writing prompts for my post. I know that political discussions, especially those about our current President, Donald Trump, can be quite upsetting to many. The one thing I like about that is that it at least means people are thinking about politics and how our elected officials impact us not only as a country and community, but also as individuals. As I am writing this post I have created two lists, the pros and cons of Donald Trump as the President of the United States. Hubby and I have extremely different … Continue Reading →

Searching for a Lottery Win and Infographic

Searching for a Lottery Win and Infographic

Are you still searching for a lottery win like I am? Although I do not always buy a lottery ticket, I do buy them fairly often. My feeling is you can’t win the lottery unless you play the lottery. I only buy one ticket per lottery game at any given time. To me, the $1-$2 price is worth the entertainment value of me dreaming of what I will do when I win (you’ve got to think positive). Hubby poo-poos my lottery tickets but I tell him if he is doing that then when I win I will not share my prize money … Continue Reading →

Society, Judgement, the Company You Keep and More

I haven’t done a post like this for a while, but I was struck today by the need to for various reasons. First – I don’t feel well today. I have some major female issues (for another post) that happen and I need to have surgery but it has to wait for right now. It made my family plans change for today which I hate. In the same vein, although not related to today, my depression (again, for another post) has been a major issue for a lot of things lately. The best I can hope for from family and … Continue Reading →
