To be honest, I wouldn’t know “fall fashion” from its other seasonal counterparts, except that when it gets colder, I tend to put more clothes on. That being said, it seems that no matter how much advice is offered on what not to wear these days (i.e. a Google search of “what not to wear” yielded approx. 726,000 results), there seem to be more and more examples of people who either got dressed in the dark or let their pets/pre-adolescent children choose their clothes. I recently had an occasion to be at a grocery store near the middle of the day and it looked like everyone there had... Read More
Imagine not being able to read this sentence, or even know what to read to click on to open an email?
Perhaps you blog, imagine for a moment that you couldn't read or write your blog or a letter from or too a dear friend. What would that feel like?
Today, September 8th is International Literacy Day. Can you imagine a more important day for social media users, bloggers, twitter users, to unite together and raise awareness and money to support literacy?
The United Nations has declared Literacy Day, literacy or more accurately illiteracy affects almost 1 billion adults and... Read More
This decade has been marked by turmoil and the rapid pace at which new crisis face us. Despite the challenge, bloggers and the tools that they have enabled, are "the person" of the Decade. They are heroes. If not for bloggers, there would be no Facebook, no Twitter user - bloggers themselves, and no news coming out of countries that were held down by authoritarian rules.
BlogCatalog is organizing a Celebration in the Alamo City to mark the end of this Decade and to recognize the good the positive impact that bloggers represent. As web 2.0 is all about iterating, the event is one... Read More
Today I didn't feel well, as my husband has generously shared his summer cold with me. My ears are aching and my throat is sore. I usually take pretty short showers, trying to preserve water (a resource which, is becoming a precious commodity). I had stretched out the hot water, in my current semi-numb state. I simply allowed it to beat down on the top of my head and against my back. It felt amazingly good in its simplicity, and it helped me to feel revived and less congested. As I stepped out of the bathtub and reached for my towel, I realized that I had allowed myself to run twice the amount... Read More

Since 9/11 I've walked the canyons of lower Manhattan, many times. The sun now shines in places it never did before. The towering Towers are gone now, the sun now shines on its footprints, and every time I walk this hallowed ground, I walk in silence. My head a little lower, my pace a little slower, I hear the muffled whispers of tourists, and the flash of a camera as they pass the chain link fence, where once stood two mighty buildings.
The weather beaten photos are now the only reminder left, to the horror and tragedy that took place two years ago, today.... Read More
Several years ago there was a foster agency with a high percentage of children on psychotropic medication. The reason for this was because the agency had on contract with a psychiatrist who would examine foster children brought to the agency by foster parents to determine if the abused and neglected children qualified (medically) for psychotropic medication.
This procedure was terribly convenient for the foster parents and the agency. It is extremely difficult to get a foster child a timely appointment to see a psychiatrist. Appointments certainly occur, but psychiatrists who take... Read More
Even though most of our planet is covered by water, we can not drink it. Desalinization attempts around the globe have been successful up to a certain point, but there is still a long way to go before the usage of salt water for ingestion by people becomes widespread.
Most of our water is gathered in reservoirs, from falling rain, or mountain runoff from melting ice. But a new study just published tells us why we've all been having an odd feeling, knowing something just isn't quite right, but being unable to put our finger on it. No, I'm not talking about the continuing debacle in Afghanistan,... Read More
