Happy Earth Day Happy Birthday

On this Earth Day April 22,2017 I want to take time to say Happy Birthday to my mom that I miss so much, she was an incredible mix of many things that I am happy to have as part of me and part of my daughter. An artist, reader, smart, smart ass, witty, independent, caring, driven, and opinionated all tucked neatly under that tough as nails skin that never complained even through fighting brain cancer, went after the things she wanted and tried her best to fit everything she could into the 3 years she was given and still always had time to talk or listen. I have no regrets, although I am sad she never got to meet Katelyn who keeps a picture on her wall (by her choice) and knows exactly who she is just grandma.



I have noticed from time to time that some guests stumble on to my Facebook page, maybe looking for help, hope, information or support, just that one piece that can get a person fighting for the life of a child another day.
When this nightmare was our reality I searched and searched for information that would keep our preemies with us. What I found was frustration and broken heart. I will never suggest I know what someone is going through as everyone is different, I do however understand the situation and have sympathy for those struggling through this test.
Here is my two cents that I wish I knew then. While facing the decision for our babies to make sure they can live to tight or save them from fighting and entire life to live I wish I had the insight of those living it. This I would like to pass on and pray that it saves a heart.
“QUESTION EVERYTHING” Don’t take any information provided by any hospital person, doctor, counselor, social worker or security guard. The fact of the matter is that no one knows what the future holds for any child or anyone else. The twins both had a grade 4 brain bleed and we were called by the night doctors that we needed to take them off life support and the daytime doctors stating they were not supporting that at the time. The doctors pretty much made the decision for us and my final thought was that if they had a reason they would fight it out. Maybe there was a reason for them to go. The word from the doctor was that they had NO chance.
Since then I have met a boy who had no chance also with a grade 4 bleed and other than being smaller I would have never known.
I try not to have regrets but I probably would not make the same decision.
On a final note don’t listen to the social worker either who actually yelled at me because I did not file them for disability. I didn’t want to label them before I knew how that might effect them later. Come to find out if a child goes on disability they are put on a medical program with a higher out of pocket to the tune of 20% more.
I just felt the need to ramble a bit today


When my husband and I got together I used to do that thing where I spread my arms and say I love you this much. I would end with this magnanimous. I would also say I love you to infinity. With those came infinanamous, my word and my symbol to go with it



How ridiculous can city ordinances get?

Up until now I have been lucky enough not to have had the opportunity to deal with code enforcement in my town. After having been issued a ticket for a trailer in the front yard (I couldn’t find any ordinance about it)I started to research it. Come to find out that any vehicle over 1 1/2 tons that sits more than 24 hours is a violation. the only class of auto that is below that is a compact coming in at 1950 per a report done by USA Today, and if a day has gone by when you didn’t use it you would be in violation. So just about everybody that drives a truck is in violation.

As I said ridiculous. Can anyone top this? Let us know.

My 2 cents on crypto currency to change the world

Apparently I am consumed; I again am talking about crypto currency. I am not sure where we will end up, but I know that something in the realm of digital currency is going to explode in 2015 and I want to be on the leading edge of it. I want to see the same amazing growth as Amazon who has over time realized a 60,000% increase in value since its inception. A few someone’s are going to be rich, most likely the same someone’s as before because they are paying attention.

So what is it going to be? Bitcoin, Litecoin, primecoin, Ripples, Dogecoin, or any other crypto or digital currency out there. Will it be on a microchip under your skin (this is real there are 2000 people already chipped otherwise known as IoT Internet of Things) or just a file in your computer? Will it be on the new Plastc card that will bring all of your accounts and cards to one place for management? I personally don’t believe this one will make it (just my opinion).

I would suggest that if you are not up to date with the crypto world you should get there quick.

Some Ideas:

Open a Bitcoin or any coin wallet.

Acquire by any means coins they are even for sale on ebay

Talk about it and find out what you can

Put it all together and make your own decision

Then “call to action” comment and tell me and the world what you thin and how it will change us all
