I hope it will suffice: Thanksgiving will be special this year. So very special. Mike hadn’t been feeling […]

I will readily admit that I have a compulsive personality, but the time has come for me to admit I’m struggling with an addiction.
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.

She roared a bit too fast into the parking lot, music blaring. Perhaps not the best way to introduce herself to a new social group, she thought, turning the music off too late to have prevented the turning of heads. Today marked a beginning and an end.
