I am seven years a widow and live by myself in a small apartment. I use a wheelchair to get around, but I wouldn't consider myself disabled.
I'm six years away from having bladder cancer resulting in a urostomy and I'm doing well. This cancer was a result of having radiation in 1995 because of uterine cancer. So have faith in yourself, a cancer diagnosis is not a death sentence. My first try at blogging was an attempt to help other people with my condition.
I am a mother of three married children, and a grandmother to eight gorgeous kids, featuring them often here. I enjoy exploring my feelings and like to try the challenges. I like humor, music, movies, games, anything British, and some sports.
I absolutely appreciate your reading and commenting on my blog. I am happy to read all of your blogs and learn more about you. Please comment however you like, ask whatever, and I'll answer honestly.
Thanks for reading!
Attending a heavy metal band concert, I decided to wear my hoodie so I would blend in. On the car trip to the venue, part of the road was lined with fans. I decided to get out of the cab and walk it to join the fun.
Is not always necessary if the cake is dense and moist, but I love frosting! This week I tried a boxed carrot cake in a mug and it had cream cheese frosting. I should have warmed the frosting packet in a cup of hot water because it plopped on top and was not spreadable. Did that stop me? Of course not!🙄😳. I am now over the flu and my appetite is back😭.
Joe was vigorously stirring the kiln. “Man this is going to be great! Slip over to that chair sweetie and look out for a miracle cure!”
Joe was keen on starting a new skin care business and his wife could use the help with her ruddy complexion. He thought kelp was the answer to thousands of people who had this reddish tint to their skin.
As he excitedly stirred his kelp and face lotion concoction he forgot to check the complete allergic reactions to the ingredients. After he applied his experiment to his wife, she ended up with huge welts on her body and difficulty in breathing. Joe’s idea led to a large emergency room bill and a disappointed, angry spouse.
Last night, the United States Senate rejected a proposed rules change that would have allowed for the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act, to advance with a simple majority of 51 votes (as opposed to the arcane Senate filibuster rule, which requires a 60 vote “supermajority” to pass certain — but not all —pieces of legislation).
But two Democratic senators, Joe Manchin from West Virginia, and Kyrsten Sinema from Arizona, joined all 50 Senate Republicans in opposition of that rules change. It failed by a vote of 52-48.
The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act, which, if passed, would have overhauled election laws and enabled Congress to counter an onslaught of new and extreme voting restrictions enacted by Republican-controlled state around the the country.
The key takeaway that every American who cares about their constitutionally guaranteed rights to vote in free and fair elections should remember is this.
Not one Republican senator in the United States Senate, and not one Republican representative in the United States House of Representatives voted in favor of ensuring and protecting the rights of every American citizen to vote in free and fair elections.
Not a single Republican member of the U.S. Congress! It makes me see red!
