If you've bought Totino's or Jeno's frozen pizzas that have pepperoni since July, this is a heads up.

No, it's not a train lamp...

In the depths of winter, I finally found there was in me an invincible summer.

~~ Albert Camus, author

Stepping closer to the light at the end of the tunnel

Hard times are inevitable--death, financial struggle, family problems, the loss of a job, depression--all of these tough times are just seasons. Abraham Lincoln once said, "This too shall pass," and you can apply it to both the good times and the bad. The thrill of a new relationship won't endure forever, just as the grief of losing a loved one won't either. So endure the hardships of life, knowing that time will eventually heal your wounds and you will make it through. Think about what struggles have occurred in your life and what they taught you. No matter how dim the light at the end of the tunnel seems, it is still a light. Each day is an opportunity for that light of hope to get closer and closer, until eventually the clouds above your head part and you feel the forgotten sunshine on you again. Overcoming pain makes you stronger and better equipped to handle the next valley.

I wanna have a Hug O' War

I know I've posted this before, but I can't find it, so I'm posting it again.

Hug O' War
by Shel Silverstein

I will not play at tug o' war.
I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.

In memory...

In memory of those who fought in the defense of others, and paid the final price.

In memory of those who gave their lives so that others might live.

In memory of the soldiers who have died for their countries.

Thank you.

To the Mothers

To those who have given birth, and those who have not...

To those who care for others, putting others' needs before their own...

To those who nurture and encourage, bring up and discipline, teach and lead by example...

Thank you for all you have done, all that you do, and all that you will!

Happy Mother's Day!
There's a new club in Chantilly, VA, that's hosting country music and dancing on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights!

It's called Sweethearts and is located in the Greenbriar Shopping Center on Route 50.

The owners enjoy country music, but to continue hosting local country bands on these nights, they've need to see us out on that dance floor!

Come out and support a new venue, and help keep local country bands playing in Northern Virginia!

Tough love... or not

I took down the post I made earlier today.

I had an intention in writing it, and it wasn't to hurt people. But apparently, I failed that.

So I will simply state that I have strong opinions about smoking.

It hurts to see people that I care about continuing to smoke when they know how harmful it is.

I would like to help them quit. I will give them whatever support I can to encourage them.


I resolve to support my friends and family in whatever ways I can, to deal with whatever challenges they may face.

"If I made you feel second best
I'm so sorry I was blind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind"

Ring out the Olde, Ring in the New

Happy New Year, my friends!

May the coming year bring you joy and peace!

Party safely!
