Minions, I Need Minions!

Hi folks! We’re out celebrating Labor Day, but we haven’t forgotten you. This week we offer three old favorites for your reading enjoyment. We’ll be back next week with more new posts.

This Post originally published September 15, 2011.


Wouldn’t it be grand to have a minion or two at your beck and call?

Awhile back my niece-in-law, Rikki remarked on facebook, “Minions – I need some…” And I chimed in, “me too!” But just to be sure that I understood the meaning of the word, I checked it out:

A minion is a follower devoted to serving his master relentlessly.

Origin of MINION: Middle French – mignon darling. First Known Use: circa 1500

In my last post I grumbled over trolls that in interrupt our lives with pain and worry… yet today I’m minion-hunting. That’s because I’m of the opinion that Continue reading » Minions, I Need Minions!

Who ya gonna call?

One of the oldest human needs is having someone to wonder where you are when you don’t come home at night.

— Margaret Mead

Hopefully GhostBusters isn’t the only resource you can count on during a crisis.  But do you know who will show up in a pinch?  Or are you simply hoping there’ll be someone there when you need them? If you’re feeling a little distracted by my questions then here are a couple of resources that will help you focus:

  1. FunQuizCards.com provides a quick and easy questionnaire: Can You Count on Your Friends Quiz.
  2. Or, perhaps it takes an emergency to get you focused?  If that’s the case, FEMA.gov publishes a Facilitator Guide that’s sure to laser-hone your thinking with these two questions: “Who can you count on?” And, “Who counts on you?”

I’m betting that those two resources will ready you to make a Continue reading » I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends…

Time to Spiff Up That Normal Life?

Have you ever been tempted to spiff-up your perfectly normal life in order to impress OPs (Other People) in your life?

High school – forget it. Jocks became jocks, cheerleaders became cheerleaders. We became us. I like us.

— Kenneth Wurman (Courtney Gains)
in Can’t Buy Me Love

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I’d vacationed with two of my high school buddies.  Now we’re making plans for another staycation at one of their homes so we can attend our high school class reunion – it’s one of those milestones.  And naturally we’re contemplating whether or not we really want to Continue reading » Time to Spiff Up That Normal Life?

How do your pets enrich your life?

I’ve been looking for a reason to use all these cute animal pictures that I’ve come across while searching for just the right photo for today’s post. At last I’ve found it. Telling you how wonderful it is to have pets.

If you are not a pet owner, the first thing you must understand is that for those of us without human children, our pets are our kids. The second thing you will need to accept is that I’m not exaggerating. My animals are my babies… maybe not the fish, but the four-legged ones are. (Fish look pretty swimming around in the tank, but beyond their beauty, they don’t give much back.)
