Winter Solstice 2012

Forget the Mayans and the talk that today will be the end of the world.

Celebrate the shortest and darkest day of the year instead. Here are some ideas:
~ Enjoy an evening of meditation
~ Watch an extremely funny movie
~ Instead of a warm and toasty adult beverage, try one you would normally drink during the longer days of summer. My favorites include mojitos, bellinis, or margaritas.
~ Take this evening and plan your summer vacation. Or, consider the number of places you would like to visit and researching them. My favorite site is concierge.com.

May this Winter Solstice bring you love, light, joy and peace.

If there’s not enough for you to celebrate this time of year, why not add the Winter Solstice to the list?

Winter Solstice

The Winter Solstice marks the time of year that the North Pole is farthest away from the sun, resulting in a shorter and darker day. It’s the official start of winter. From this day until June, the Summer Solstice, days become longer. Yes, that means little by little more daylight. So why not celebrate it?

If you find yourself in a city where the sun is shining, get out of the four walls and enjoy it. Or, light a candle to represent the lighter days to come.

May this Winter Solstice bring you love, light, joy and peace!

In light of the latest comments “misspoke” this time by Missouri Republican Rep. Todd Akin, I thought would republish this post I wrote in January. Please feel free to share it with the political officials in your district.

On January 25th, my horoscope in The Globe and Mail read:

Be careful what you say today because if you are not careful in your choice of words someone could take it the wrong way and cause a scene. Better to say nothing than to say the wrong thing.

Think Before You Speak

This was a sign for me to finally publish this blog post: “Think before you speak (or write)” 

My mother is responsible for drilling that statement into my head. I can’t tell you how many times I heard it growing up. Nor can I tell you how many times I heard her voice in my head saying it before I said something that could have ended up with my butt in a sling.

I guess I must be one of the majority because today, words are flying willy nilly, verbally and in writing.

Hollywood may need to use disclaimers

I love movies. Always have. But Hollywood needs to be careful with the movies they produce. I think they should start using disclaimers with the opening credits. The reason is simple: Folks are bat s#!+ crazy! Case in point: Czech man tried to take 247 animals on plane When I heard this story on the … Continue reading Hollywood may need to use disclaimers
