Bitter Or Sweet

Recently, a friend encouraged me to begin a special cleanse regime using a product she had started using a few months before. I do try to do a cleanse of my body periodically and was looking to do so in the near future, so I gave her product a try. Noticing no difference in anything after a week, I stopped using the product and discussed it with my friend. She gave me a link to someone she knows who also uses the product and suggested I watch the video before disregarding it altogether

Beware This Boy

Recently, I posted a meme on Facebook regarding the anniversary of the witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts. I mentioned on this post that ignorance is still killing the innocents. A few days later, I woke to thoughts of a scene from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. More specifically, the Alastair Sims’  movie version with the final scene between Ebenezer Scrooge and the ghost of Christmas present

The Way To Heaven

Recently, I have been binge watching Star Trek: The Next Generation. While watching an episode in the sixth season, the Klingon character Worf, was struggling with his faith and whether or not there really is a Sto-vo-kor or heaven.
All organized religions on Earth seem to have some sort of afterlife woven into their tenet. Some have only a paradise that awaits; while others teach of a reward – heaven, and a punishment – hell

What’s In A Name?

There are so many ways this post could go, given the title I have chosen. We could explore William Shakespeare’s play Romeo And Juliet where he penned the oft used quad of words. Of course, I borrowed them from him, he is, after all, one of my favorite poets. Juliet spoke these words to Romeo to help him better understand that their love was strong and had nothing to do with the feud between their families

Resolute Or Rebel

I was just looking through my old posts and it seems I began writing blog posts for/just after New Year a few years back. Guess this means it is either a tradition or a habit. Not exactly sure which category I want to place this in.
New Year’s Eve found me in bed fighting my dragon

E Pur Si Muove

Not long ago, I was watching a television show where a scientist was working on an important project related to the characters in the program. She paused and said, “E pur si muove. And yet it moves.” She looked at the other person with whom she was speaking and went on to discuss how things we now see and have proven scientifically were once forbidden and called heretical

You Are So Sweet

What is this fascination that Americans seem have with sugar? Everything has to contain sugar or it isn’t worth consuming.
Start with diet programs. Most of these diets going around to lose weight start with drinking super-sweet diet shakes, usually chocolate.  They want you to drink one of those in place of a meal and in place of all snacks

Holidays

This morning, I was scrolling a bit on Facebook and began to reminisce. I saw a post for a group I belong to called Knoxville Eats. Apparently, this poster gets together with her siblings and they make lists of what each person, parents included, will prepare and bring to their Thanksgiving celebration. I thought back to when my grandmother was alive and we had big family holiday dinners

Hate Cannot Abide

Anyone who has known me for any length of time knows I can be very sensitive. I do not cuss and do not watch movies and television programs with excessive cussing and violence. In fact, I have had some friends dub me their moral compass. I have had one friend who cusses in every sentence make an apology as I walk into the room where he has just uttered some profane words

Giving Thanks?

Next month, the month we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the United States, people will begin posting one thing every day that they are thankful for. This is an easy task. For the most part, you can just look around you and name one person or one item you see and be thankful for that. The hard part is being grateful for those same things all year long
