Pay Attention

If something doesn’t seem right, then it probably isn’t. This nutty world we all live in requires that we pay attention to that inner voice we all possess. Where others fail us, the inner voice won’t. Even if it just means that we take a second look at something, paying attention results in acting with […]

Heritage for the Blind Donation

We donated three cars today to Heritage for the Blind. From the phone call to arrange pick up, to the tow company who came today, this process was easy and the people involved were just great! I highly recommend calling 1800-DONATE-CARS if you have any vehicles that are just sitting around, and in our case, […]

And another chapter begins

Our business is probably ending. It’s not our choice, but our landlord’s. If we can’t find another location within a few days, we’re basically done. 13 1/2 years and it all ends when we finally stand up for our rights. Listening to Melissa Harris-Perry’s show this morning, I learned about a woman who did the […]

GW Pharma gets a patent on cannabinoids.

GW Pharma was awarded a patent recently on cancer-killing cannabinoids. Nice that the federal government is acknowledging what many of us have known for some time now. Cannabis is an essential part of our pharmacopeia. But when you consider the arrests, trials and convictions of innocent medical cannabis users who are only following their state […]

Maybe I should just stay home on the weekends.

I’m so glad President Obama signed the expanded version of the Violence Against Women Act into law. It provides needed support for survivors that they wouldn’t have otherwise. Of course the Republicans have sent us into sequester so part of the funding will not get to where it needs to go until this is resolved. […]

Reflections on the struggle..

VAWA passed this week. I would like to think that our collective voices standing up for women’s  rights helped. I felt better doing so, and I know others did as well. But that’s only one of the myriad issues that women face today. I thought that at some point, as a country, we would have […]

VAWA passes!

Well, VAWA is headed to the President’s desk for signing.  286 Yes and 138 No.  You can guess who the no votes were from.  But 59 Republicans voted Yes.  That’s really encouraging.  We thank you for voting to protect us..all of us.  The rest of the GOP needs to find their hearts.  Stop obstructing. Stop […]

Medical Cannabis Laws are a Blessing…not a Given

I just read an article about a couple in Arizona who have medical cannabis cards and then flagrantly violated state law to open a “bakery” in their home, complete with customer counter and hours of business sign. Great.I know our economy isn’t great. Cannabis is prevalent and it’s tempting to make money with it. Growers, […]

Oh Mike Pence…

There’s something wrong with these governors who want to put probes in my vagina.  And now, Mike Pence, the new governor of Indiana wants to put not one, but two of the damn things in there. His idea is that any woman who takes the abortion pill should be forced to get the ultrasound before […]

So I’m Going to Stupidly Weigh in on this…

I guess Melissa Harris-Perry stepped in it when she took issue with President Obama’s seemingly connecting single moms and, in turn, the lack of dads, as one reason for gun violence. I caught that “slip of the tongue” as well and thought at the time, well this won’t be good. The Twitterverse went nuts. Now […]
