Remembering the ones we love

My grandmother passed away from cancer today at 10:15am.  They are not sure what kind because she refused a biopsy that would determine its type.  The cancer had aggressively spread throughout her body.  There were tumors in her liver, kidneys, and who knows where else.  She was terminal; and only lived about a month after the initial diagnosis.  The cancer… Read more →

  Tucson has decided that the best way to enforce their traffic laws is through the use of radar systems that are coupled with cameras which allow them to automatically issue citations for infractions. I have received a ticket for speeding and so have most people that I know. The city insists that this system has made Tucson a safer… Read more →

A new look

I know that I haven’t really kept up with this blog over the last year.  There have been times that I have thought about writing but just haven’t.  I thought it was about time that I get back to it and since I wasn’t happy with the old design; I figured we could start things off with a new look… Read more →

Wow, could you get more superficial?

All about circuit breakers

Electricity is an amazing thing. I tend to take how incredible it is for granted. It makes our entire lifestyle possible. Without it we would still be stuck in the dark ages, literally 🙂 If you have been reading my blog lately you will know that I have been having some electrical problems with my house. I was nervous that… Read more →

The joys of being a home owner

I’ve owned my home for nearly 2 years now. It’s been a fun experience to own but it’s also been a lot more expensive than I imagined. It seems like there is always something going wrong. In November the thermostat on the stove went out, unfortunately the stove was so old they no longer made the replacement part. That was… Read more →

Being a good leader

Relationships are a difficult thing to maintain; at least for me. I wish I could say that developing them and making them work came with ease for me; but, it doesn’t. I feel like they are something that I have to fight for. I wonder if everyone feels that way or if it’s just me. One particularly difficult part for… Read more →
