I am old enough to have

been shocked to the bone when I went to visit my relatives in NC and for the first time saw "White Only" signs everywhere. I thought racism happened in the South and not here in the North East. What...

I taught preschool and first grade. I would have items in my hands for the instruction and lessons and just bend my legs and sit on the floor with them. Never thought about it.

Not big on new furnishings

We moved to a new house in 1970 and furnished it. We of course had to buy kid furniture as we had our two kids and then some new pieces when they were teens. Then because the sofa and love seat fit...

I get them a lot

my doctor said I need to make sure that I have enough magnesium and potassium. I still get them. I use a herbal pad that can be heated in the microwave. The heat releases the cramping and stops the...
