Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

In the late 90s I took a stand against PC culture and kept my job....How I did it...

In about 1997 (IIRC) I became a branch manager for a national mortgage lender...The Money Store.. We were based out of Sacramento, CA, but for a time had regional offices...My job as manager was to communicate with the underwriters out of California during the loan process....The PC thing had just got started I suppose....

Growing up like I did here, and it's still that way, is that men and women say things such as this to each other..

"You need more coffee Hon?"
"Thank you darlin'"
"I appreciate it sweetie.."
"Than you ma'am.."
etc....

History channel did a documentary on the 50 states and Louisville native and NPR personality Bob Edwards said, he comes home to Louisville sometimes when he needs his "thank you Hon" fix...It's common language and is not meant in anyway to be sexist or derogatory...It's just cultural...Men and women say it...

So here I am...on the phone with a female ...

I woke up to an email from someone telling me to stop singing on #DumpsterFire 😥
