Life is Both Hard and Uncertain - Sometimes It Seems to Reward

Yes, this piece may sound a bit philosophical. But, at the same time, it is realistic. When I was a teenager, during earlier high school years, I had a small handful of friends, or rather, two. They were quite different. One group still is in touch with m

Our Mortgage Has Finally Been Approved

Boy is it a long process getting a mortgage these days! First you call up and get an agreement in principle, even if you already did this online they still want to do another one. Once you have that they agree to give you an appointment with a mortgage adv

My Weirdest Dream to Date

OK. What I am about to relate is not informative. It is not particularly helpful. It will do little to brighten your day. What it will do is put down via electronic paper and pen the weirdest dream I've ever experienced. I don't remember where I was or wh

It's about time for me to take a long look at my life.

After being tested after 20 years of being diagnosed with both OSA and CSA I have to look ahead at the day when I finally get a new CPAP or APAP or BIPAP machine. I am alive still, in spite of not having a nasal CPAP machine since sometime back in Septembe

Refllecting on 2017

It's that time of year again where I start getting all reflective thinking back on the year gone past. Usually I do this post just before Christmas, but its been a little busy here recently and this is the first I have had time to sit and think for weeks.

My Friend Who Burned to Death

Well, I make it a point to be friendly toward people of all walks of life. I especially feel for those less fortunate, including those some would call mentally challenged, or, perhaps a better term might be mentally misaligned. A man I once met, in his la

after over 20 years of being Biplar, now I am told by a person of some education that I might in fact be Obessive Compulsive with Attention Deficit. So? I am only human, right?

I wanted to just get up and leave yesterday. I have to listen to their assessments as they put labels on just about everything I say or don't say. I have been taking treatment for Bipolar One, Mixed, with Rapid Cycling for 2 decades and now I am told I mig

Not sure about this weather. It went down into the 40s over nignt but this afternoon will be up to 70 degrees.

The trees are shedding leaves at different rates. One sick-a-more is about fully empty of it's leaves but the other sick-a-more has over half of it's leaves still on so while I wait until they ALL FALL OFF, I won't bother raking anything. The day

Do your wooden windows sweat moisture all winter?

I hate the fact that during winter season, the cold air outside meets up with the warm moist air inside the house and we have constant condensation coming down on the window panes, and this creates a constant cycle of wiping down the window surface inside

A man with a clipboard in hand at my front door was very persistent.

If only it were this easy, just to PUT A DO NOT SOLICIT sign on the front door! I hate it when I am watching television and relaxing only to be interrupted by a man at the front door, knocking, wearing a business outfit and carrying in his hand a

Bugs and Killing with Kindness

Well, I view life as precious. I absolutely refuse to run over a snake in the road, because I was not the source of its life. It is as much entitled to live as I am! But I do have my limits. I cannot allow total pests to live inside my house, or endanger m

Don't look back to the past, but only look forward with hope that you and I can change our own destiny without regrets.

I will not be looking back at 2017 with regret over the people and the things that were bad things. It does me no good to dwell on the things in life that I can not control. But I know that for the future, I am able to take charge of my own direction. I c

Is Dividing an Inheritance in Equal Fractions the Best Way?

You want to demonstrate to your three kids that you love them equally. At the same time (perhaps unconsciously) you want to make the writing of your Will as simple as possible. So you decide to divide equally whatever assets you will leave. Each child gets
