I have a good side and a bad side. Take your pick.

Last Saturday, I attended a get together/beach party that a friend of my husband's was hosting. We shall call him "Ben." We hadn't seen him for about three years previously, but my husband contacted him recently about a high school... Continue reading
Economic recovery? In your dreams! Hey, 99er's, guess what? We are fucked! As I've mentioned before, maybe you should start protesting for the right reasons. If this isn't a wake up call for you, I don't know what is. U.S.... Continue reading
As much disdain I have for the HR industry, we definitely agree on one point: the importance of using proper grammar and spelling. It has been reiterated over time by HR professionals that job seekers must pay closer attention to... Continue reading
There was nothing wrong with the old compose editor. I'm experiencing similar issues that folks have previously addressed. I come from the school of "if it ain't broke - don't fix it."

I can see both advantages and disadvantages to books in any form. I'm partial to the hardcover version myself. I feel for anyone that has to make the challenging transition from hardcopy to e-form.

I'd wish President Obama a happy birthday today, but I really don't have it in me to be that generous. I'm still slightly irritated that he was able to woo me with his charming words of sexual chocolate stature almost... Continue reading

Hey you almighty and all-knowing horticulturists at the Chicago Botanic Garden....I've done tricked you out! That's right. I'm letting the whole universe know that you're not as perfect as you claim to be. My husband and I decided to trot down to the north side of things (Kenosha, WI to... Continue reading

I love a young girl's imagination. Sometimes their ideas don't make sense, but they're funny. Then there are other times they make so much sense, you kick yourself wondering why you didn't think of it yourself? The latter was the case yesterday when my niece showed me a really good...

Believe me when I say that I am appreciative of your comprehensive knowledge of U.S. history, and I do agree with some of your points, but I think you've missed the point of my post entirely that you have not addressed. While we can place the blame on the Clinton administration for instituting NAFTA, that doesn't help in bringing jobs BACK to American soil. Why are we begging for ANOTHER extension when we should be begging for JOBS.....darlin'. By the way, our tax dollars pay for up to six months of unemployment (I think). At some point, it's paid for by federal funding.

I spotted this guy chillaxin' on a grape leaf yesterday: I had no idea what it was at first. You see, I'm still a bit of a novice when it comes to identifying butterflies, so if I see someone I don't recognize, I turn to my reliable friend, The Butterfly... Continue reading

....a perfectly sweet Black Swallowtail: My husband and I situated ourselves in the cozy nook we had built the same time the retaining wall was constructed. It's a miniature patio, complete with concrete patio blocks with a 2-seat bistro set. It's designed as a relaxation spot and get a more... Continue reading

I don't know what the hell possessed me to start gardening as a hobby. I have no patience, and I want everything to happen, like, yesterday. Over the years, I have seen some gorgeous gardens, and I always ask, "How do you get your garden to look like that?" "Patience."... Continue reading

I believe this was one of the very first photos taken with my iPhone 4. The zoom feature is quite nice, and the resolution is amazing in this photo. Of course, it helps to have a cooperative Red Admiral butterfly. This guy didn't even seem to notice I was there,... Continue reading

I was so excited to see this beautiful butterfly. I first saw it from a distance flying around my angel's blush hydrangea. Curious, I got up to see what the heck it was, only to be greeted by bees. Eek, no thanks. I quickly sat back down. About an hour... Continue reading

Yeah, I'm not so sure if I want to grant unemployment extension after watching this. But, in all fairness, give the guy some credit for trying. (Operative word: TRYING.) LOL.

Not sure what I think about this. Especially with a web site domain that reads "giveusourmoney." Adding insult to injury is not the solution, folks. Continue reading
The 99ers are giving themselves a bad reputation in a hurry. According to Twitter and Google, the outbursts persist. For all the wrong reasons. It's been an exciting week for the unemployed. Not so exciting for us "seasoned veterans." We... Continue reading
I recently read a very funny (but true) quote on my Facebook newsfeed. It said: "People with closed minds have very open mouths." I couldn't help but giggle uncontrollably because nothing is further from the truth. Some folks thrive on... Continue reading

Oh boy! Job seekers unite! Today is a glorious day for us with the recent passing on extending unemployment benefits. With only a couple of months left of summer, that means I have more time to work on my tan.... Continue reading
Yeah, I'm pissed off. I'm pissed off at the snooty, cranky Republicans in Congress, as well as the lucky few who have jobs and are quick to make judgments against the "lazy job seekers who are feeding off the government."... Continue reading
Last September I went for a job interview at one of the most reputable public relations/advertising agency in Chicago. I was by far elated, as this was considered the job of my "dreams." The only reason I even got an... Continue reading
The Illinois primary election took place yesterday, and I'm happy to have been a part of the trifling voter turnout to let my voice be heard. I have an inaudible but optimistic dream that someday I'll be able to pick... Continue reading
