    If We Were Having Coffee I’d Tell You About Surviving Christmas and 2016

    How many times have I said I will start Christmas shopping in July?   The last-minute shopping panic is over, I’m so glad life can return to normal even though time is limited due to school work. I have one year and six months left to finish school, or three plus if I continue on to a Master’s Degree. For the past six months, I have been sticking my nose in a textbook every night, pushing myself to learn topics that I don’t really enjoy. Math was never my favorite subject, that means Finance, Accounting, and anything that requires equations including economics must be learned by use of strict discipline.…

    “If we were having coffee…”? – #weekendcoffeeshare

    I’d tell you why such a glum face. I’m one of those writers who needs to keep a full-time day job besides writing. It is how I connect to the world. Interacting with people is what keeps me going. It is where I can come up with new ideas. Inspiration comes from the daily interaction with co-workers. So why so glum, you ask? For the past few weeks, I was part of a workforce reduction. That’s right. I was displaced and left to scour the internet in search of a new day job. It’s not so easy to do these days, that is unless you have some sort of degree.…

    My Suspicions of Tyrion Lannister – Who Could He Really Be?

    At the moment, I’m halfway through reading Game of Thrones: A Feast of Crows – Book 4 by GRRM. This series is so complex; it rattles my brain as to how George Martin was able to put together such a fabulous story. I do have theories of who is whom and what they mean to the story. The following video does have spoilers. So if you haven’t read the books up to book 5, then expect spoilers. Almost everyone I know likes to jump ahead of an excellent book to see if they can get a glimpse as to which way the story is going to take them. Will this…

    Knowing You’re Not Alone

That one would be my son. He’s been living at home for the past three years. Maybe someday he’ll find a girl and make his own roost. That’s right, I thought I was an empty nester several years ago, then the recession hit and he was in trouble. After spending a year in a residential rehab, he came home to live with us. He hadn’t lived with me since he was twelve. Those in-between years were spent living in his father’s house. I can’t say that had…
