What a great blog, Marcia! I've also had to turn off the TV - the persistently negative rant of cable news just darkens the soul. So...my list: hiking in the red rocks, or just sitting on my patio drinking in the view; watching my puppy's antics, and especially when my old cat behaves like a kitten; reading, especially when I discover a new author I really connect with; my own homemade lasagna; laughing with friends; and especially, spending quality time with my husband.

Elaine, I had no idea about the spit dogs history! Thanks for sharing that. We should look into getting her to fuel a generator.

Cathy, thanks for the suggestion, but the one time we gave her a tennis ball, she ripped it to shreds in minutes. For a little tyke, she's rough on toys. We're going to go broke buying them!

by Kris Neri There’s a terrorist living in my house. No, not one of the awful people who bomb strangers. I spelled that wrong. I’m living with a terrier. The words are spelled similarly, and while terriers certainly don't create... Continue reading

Much luck with the new series, Elaine. It sounds great. It's too bad that you know so much about strokes, but since you did go through those experiences, you now get to make this book more authentic. Can't wait to read it.

Excellent sentiments, Charlaine. Thanks for posting.

Welcome to the Femmes, Margaret! I've had readers tell me they don't read paranormal, too. I understand that some people simply can't stretch their minds into fantasy. But thankfully, most readers enjoy it because it is so creative and fun to write.

by Kris Neri Two years after the original publication of Desert Solitaire by Edward Abbey, the first Earth Day was celebrated, on April 22, 1970. While there's no way to say for certain, I’d like to think that the first... Continue reading

Elaine, thanks for sharing your experience. From what I've read, lots of kids who bully others are abused by bully-parents. They're just passing on what they know. Today it's even more serious because often the kids who are bullied fight back with guns.

by Kris I have a friend who absolutely hates grocery shopping. She hates it so much, if anyone even brings up the subject of trips to the supermarket, the rant it generates seems more appropriate for an unexpected descent into... Continue reading

Margaret, what a great way to celebrate Valentine's Day! Love the lunch-the-day-before idea.

Mary, I feel exactly the same way. It should be a personal choice.

Cathy, that is so wrong! It's not just about romantic love. There have always been cards for friends, relatives, teachers, co-workers, etc. Shame on the card companies.

Sounds like that's the perfect way for you, Hank.

Good for you, Mark. I've never understood celebrating any holiday if it has no meaning for you.

by Kris Neri With February upon us, I want to ask what Valentine’s Day means to you? For some, who are happily committed, it’s the most romantic day of the year. Yet cynics often regard it as a fake holiday... Continue reading

Thanks for catching that, Mary...sigh. I wish I could say I've never made that flub before, but I always do.

I'm feeling for you, too, Charlaine. I'm so sorry for your losses.

Thanks, Hank. We do know they'll have short lives, but I think we remain in denial about it.
