(Oh look, my post ideas for May list suggests I comment on an article in the news - I can do that!) From Wikipedia: Of course, it is my humble opinion that this map will look it's finest when it is entirely navy blue, but until then...this has been a pretty good... Continue Reading →
During my often adventurous travels around Indiana last week, the mom I was riding with and I stopped at a Panera for lunch. As I got up to go to the bathroom, I left my purse with my cell phone in it, at the table with my companion. The lady who charged in front of... Continue Reading →
A rare 2nd time in the month of May - the winds shift from coming off the ocean in the west bringing moisture and cool air to blowing in from the desert through the mountain canyons at the east. Hot, dry and extremely gusty. It brings temps as high as 90 right at the ocean... Continue Reading →
If this doesn’t make you smile on a Monday, I just don’t know what will:
Start the day with a 4.7 mile run that includes conquering Torrey Pines hill. Follow up the run with a nice Frappucino and a couple of beers along with a BBQ lunch prepared by the boys for my parents and I, then a round of Phase 10 won by Alex (yet again). Happy Mothers Day!

Ramaa Mosley is attempting to co-opt the #BringBackOurGirls movement, and I am not here for any of this.
Yesterday, ABC News (of the United States) made up a profile on the newsmagazine Nightline of Ramaa Mosley, and essentially credited her with creating the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag—for those wondering, it refers to the 234 girls kidnapped by Boko Haram in Nigera weeks ago, that haven’t been found as of yet.
