Getting Started with Your Writing

As much as we know we have a story to tell, questions pop up along the way and stop us in mid-sentence. Questions keep us from sending a query letter, or writing the first chapter, or delving into publishing, or marketing our finished pieces… We want to know that we’re doing it right. Well, sometimes there is no one right way. Sometimes just getting started is the…

Warning Signs

We were both curious about the bargains we might uncover, when the Borders Bookstore in our little community decided to close the doors and clear the remaining inventory.

"Stale Dry Dog Food"~GREEN Inspirations~April 7, 2011

If your dog won't eat that last bowlful or two of DRY dog food from the bag because it's stale, instead of tossing it into the trash add it to your compost bin...Sprinkle a thin coating over several layers...It's high in nitrogen and helps with the composting process.

Sail or Fail?

Rough sailing Often when we hear those 2 words together we believe it to mean that our choice is to fail or to sail smoothly off into the sunset.  But my experience is that's not the choice.

We can fail (= do nothing but hope something happens) 


we can sail, into rough waters at times, needing navigation skills, strength, desire, destination and above all a rough idea…

Great Lives Are Not By Chance




Have you ever been around someone who assumed the worst about everything, as well as been around someone who assumed the best about everything? Do you notice any differences in their way of lives?


It seems the one who expects the worst tends to live a life of stress, because the worst things they…

"She Sells Seashells"~GREEN Inspirations~April 6, 2011

Whenever you're steaming clams or boiling a pot of shrimp, save those shells for your garden...The shells make an excellent fertilizer because they are rich in calcium...Set them outside to dry for a day or two then toss into a brown paper bag and take a hammer to them...Sprinkle the crushed shells around your garden then lightly turn the soil.

Is That Latte Worth Your Time?

We've all heard the saying 'time is money'. Some of us get paid by our time spent in the office or on the job. But if 'time is money' is a true statement, could 'money is time' be true as well?

At times, I try to not only think about how much things cost dollar wise, but how much time they cost as well. For example, let's say you make $10/hr at your job. You get up early to get ready as you need to be there by 8am. Every day before you get to the office, you need to go through the… Continue

"Old Kiddie Pool"~GREEN Inspirations~April 5, 2011

Now about that rigid kiddie pool that the kids have outgrown or it's cracked and won't hold water, why not turn it into a raised bed for flowers/herbs/vegetables?...Place it where you want it because once it's filled with soil it will be heavy...Slash holes in the bottom for drainage...Add topsoil/compost/fertilizer for whatever seeds/plants you are going to grow...You can add more soil or bricks around the pool… Continue

Two and a Half Men: My Life After I Gave Up TV

I went from 2005 to 2007 without owning or watching tv.  For a sports and political nut, that would seem like a long time.  I would guess I went from watching between 30-40 hours of tv per week to nothing.  The reason was my house had been foreclosed and I lived out of my car for a considerable length…
