I know I live down here in the Bible Belt, where you can’t swing a cat without hitting a church, but I had no idea until recently just how seriously these Southern folks are about their Bibles, Jesus and going to church. (They’re also very serious about their mamas, sweet tea, Coca-Cola, and dessert, but that’s a whole different post.) (more…)

I hate liars memeThe one thing I hate, probably more than anything else in the world, is lying and liars. I hate being lied to. I hate hearing other people telling lies. Lies are ugly, hurtful and sometimes, dangerous. And lies are never necessary with me. I’m a nice person, just tell me the truth. I can handle it. (more…)

This week, I’m taking a quick break from blogging. I hope you all have a delightful Independence Day and a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has or still serves in our armed forces.

I’ll be back next Monday with my usual wit or whine session. Until then:

happy 4th July

Most of you know that at the end of every one of my blogs, I post a “fun fact” about myself. I don’t really know how “fun” those facts are to you, but to me, they’re just random silliness about my quirky self. My way of sharing my personality with you. (more…)

sunriseWe’ve all heard the expression silence is golden and I happen to believe that is a true statement. I love quiet. I look forward to that special time of the day, right after breakfast, when all of my guests have either checked out for other exciting places, or gone out exploring for the day, and my husband leaves for work. I feel like I have space to move and I can breathe.

caller id screen on phoneLately I’ve noticed a super large increase in the amount of unsolicited phone calls on both my home (the inn) phone and my cell phone. Despite being on all of the “do not call” lists, auto rejecting, and blocking unwanted numbers every – single – time, I continue to get annoying phone calls from telemarketers. All day long.  (more…)

woman screamingNothing – and I mean NOTHING – makes me more crazy frustrated than computer problems. I HATE computers. No, strike that, I hate computers when they don’t work. I’m not computer literate. I can accomplish wonderful things with the limited amount of knowledge I possess. But, when things go wrong, I am totally lost and immediately frustrated.
