Oh Where Oh Where Did the Time Go?

AWOL.

Missing in action.

Me.

One minute I'm blogging away, head swimming with so many ideas and thoughts that I couldn't type fast enough to get it all out into a post.

The next I'm looking at my blog and wondering why I haven't posted anything in months.

So what's the deal? What's going on?

Answer: I don't know.

Yup. I just don't know. You would think with all that's going on in my life right now that I'd have barrels of topics to explore and ponder. All for the benefit of you, gentle reader. But no. It's been like writer's block. I'll call it "blog block". And just like that I've coined a new term. Voila!

Blog Block - the mysterious act of totally ignoring and staying away from one's blog for an indefinite period of time.

But where did it come from, this ignorant Block? And what can I do to break Blog Block?

For now my solution is just this. And this. And this. Just type. See what comes out. Just get SOMETHING down on paper (so to speak). At least my huge world-wide audience will know that I still walk among them. That I haven't gone off to that great big bloggy boot-camp in the sky.

So bear with me, my adoring fans. I will enlighten you with exciting, earth-shattering, life changing posts any day now...so, wait for it....wait for it...

I'll be back. I've got so much to tell you!

A Friend Indeed



♪♫  When you're down and troubled and you need a helping hand  ♪♫
and nothing, whoa, nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me and soon I will be there
to brighten up even your darkest nights.

You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call
and I'll be there, yeah, yeah,
♪♫  you've got a friend.  ♪♫
- Carole King

Just got back from spending a weekend away with a very close girlfriend. Someone that's meant a lot to me for a very long time.

No, we didn't jet off to an exotic location. No, we didn't head off to party-city. No, we didn't sail away to a distant horizon.

It was better than that!

We don't get to see each other much. Living 2 hours away from each other tends to get in the way. Email, texting and facebook keeps us connected. (Seriously - A big WHOOP! for modern technology.)

However....every now and then girlfriends just got to get together...in person!

So...a plan was hatched...

Ramblings, Ponderings and other States of Mine - Fame and Fortune

Ah. The trappings of wealth. And celebrity. Many think of this as a modern phenomenon. Au contraire!

There's always been a wide gap between the haves and have-nots. And the fascination that comes with wondering how the other half lives? Been around forever!

I admit. I'm guilty. I have pondered what it must be like to live the life of the rich and famous (this mostly occurs when I sit down to pay those darn bills that keep showing up in my mailbox...argh!)

Let's call them the R&F...those who have what we do not...
