Right now I do feel like FanBox is a pyramid scheme. It only took me three years to get to the point that I had experienced enough BS that I could close the door on it forever.

From story to story, from novel to novel, protagonists vary widely in psychological make-up, goals and dreams, in the types of conflicts they face and in the way they resolve these conflicts.
Blending the fiction seamlessly with the many historical and factual events of the late 18th century and early 19th century,
Before we get into the meat of the blog of just wanted to say that I hope all of my Christian family and friends had a wonderful Christmas and have a great New Year.
My dad came from a family where he had thirteen siblings and they lived in a three room house with a path plus a chicken house. He had to eat water gravy and biscuits many times because they didn’t own a cow. Mom would tell how she never had to go hungry because her grandparents had cows and pigs and everyone hunted and fished. Charley Dobyns took care of his family during
I am a middle aged female that has worked with the public most of my adult life. I have watched the poor suffer due to lack of medical care. Our medical system is broken and has been for many years. Not everyone gets the care they need. I feel the Birth Control issue was brought about by politics and I for one am sick of it. People should be our concern not Democrats or Republicans.
It’s known that fathers have a special bond with their little girls and they have been given a huge ability to influence the lives of their daughters. Based on the relationship with the daughter, father’s influence can go either way – positively or negatively. Building this bond through girl’s childhood and teenage ages can be […]
This was a labor of love. It brought me much closer to my Great Grandfather, Charley Dobyns. This book is loosely based on his life. My mother told me stories over the years about her Grandfather. He was a man of pioneering stock. He was a horseman and enjoyed the country life. I met him only once. I must have been about five years old. I can see him and my Great Grandmother telling us
Have you ever given any thought to how amazing the mind is. The more I read and watch what happens in this world, the more I realize what an amazing creation God gave to us. Even as slow as I can be at times, it’s the other times that totally blows me away. I ask […]
I thought of Halloween as an American Holiday but as usual when I think I know something, my thinking is wrong. I probably thought that way because I had not heard of any other countries having a Halloween Holiday. I wonder if it is practiced in the same way as America does it? In my […]
The largest full moon of 2013, a so-called “supermoon,” will light up the night sky this weekend, but there’s more to this lunar delight than meets the eye. On Sunday, June 23, at 7 a.m. EDT (1100 GMT), the moon will arrive at perigee — the point in its orbit bringing it closest to Earth), […]
Below is the definition of a Redneck from Dictionary.com. The problem with this definition is it’s not complete. Being a Redneck is a way of life for many people in the United States. My son is a Redneck and very proud of the fact, but if he fits in any part of this definition it […]
When I was a five year old, my parents and I went to Carlsbad New Mexico to see Carlsbad Caverns. It was an experience that stuck in my mind like glue. I remember it all as if it was yesterday. It would be sixty years before I returned to that area. At my childhood visit, […]
OK, I admit it I’m not the goat’s grandmother, but I am the mother of the owner of this small group of Mini Nubians. My daughter has gotten into the goat breeding business with both feet along with my son-in-law and grandson. They are breeding the stock to gain a milk producing, polled (hornless) variety. […]
If you fell in love, you know what a driving force “new love” can be. I was one of those people who only wanted the “new love”, and it took me a long time to figure out it was never meant to stay. Needless to say, long-term relationships were not my strong point at that […]
When I watched this video I knew I had to share it. It is so full of memories for those of us raised in the 50′s and 60′s and will show the younger folks some of what they missed. Whoever put this video together did a great job. The music is great and it reminds […]
The striped bass is the main piscivore of the LSZ Do we have any fishermen on FanBox? In case you missed it on line, the state striped bass record has been broke in Alabama and could possibly be a world record but that will take a while to find out. James Bramlett went fishing at […]
English: A sinkhole in Oman Deutsch: Eine Doline im Oman I’m not going to write about the mechanism by which we ingest food. I want to spend a little bit of time writing about the earth opening up and swallowing us mere mortals. I feel so bad for the family that lost their son and […]

From the online dictionary thank·ful Adjective Pleased and relieved: “they were thankful that the war was finally over”; “I was very thankful to be alive”. Expressing gratitude and relief: “a […]
Meriwether Lewis I watched a television program last night that totally fascinated me. It was about Meriwether Lewis. Those of you who are not familiar with him, I will tell you a little about his background. He was born on August 18, 1774 in Charlottesville, Virginia. He became a soldier, served under William Clark who he later picked to […]
I was surprised when I heard the statistics of those who don’t. Being one of those people who usually follow the rules, I turned off my electronics before I boarded a plane. It seems the FFA is possibly going to lighten up a bit on their rules, but should they. Electromagnetic waves put off by passengers electronics […]

Todays blog was brought to you by Sophie, who spent the night at the emergency hospital after recieving a bite through the trachea from her big brother, Andy. It was a scary time. Our animals are basically are kids since ours have grown up and left. That’s a whole […]

Part 2 This is part two of an article posted by a retired chemistry college professor concerning the fallacy of Oxygenated Water and other hypes. Not just for drinking!

Junk science in the marketplace Unless you have gills, it’s just an expensive burp! Part 1 Oxygenated water (also known as “ super-oxygenated” water) is offered at hundreds of Web sites. I highly recommend it if you happen to be a fish, but if you have lungs that breathe air, then forget about it! All water […]
Hello, it’s the nurse in me again, wanting to remind everyone that we have an epidemic on our hands with the flu. If you have symptoms of the flu then stay home because I don’t want it. I love to share but just not this nasty little bug. In case you have forgotten the symptoms […]
I got a puppy for Christmas as a gift from a family member. Her name is Sophie. She is the product of two registered dogs. Unfortunately one is Dachshund and the other is Shih Tzu. Mother nature came up with a very unique breed. She has short hair like a Dachshund with long hair patches like the […]
It’s hard to believe this is the last day of 2012. This year has gone by so fast for me. My mother told me many years ago that it would happen. At the time I didn’t believe her but I have since learned she knew exactly what she was talking about. The older you get […]
I’m so excited and can’t keep my old heart from jumping up and down. I finally have my book of short stories on Amazon. It’s called, “Shirley’s Shorts and Flashes”. You can read just about any genre you want with these stories. I started working on them a couple of years ago. One thing I’m […]
