How many times have we heard, “the sky’s the limit”?

According to the President of Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida, the sky is not the limit.

Hmmm…

That was the sales pitch we got a year ago when looking for schools for my son, Richard.  Sol...

Let's take a moment to say thank you to the person(s) who started this #metoo campaign.  It's a good start.

Unwanted sexual advances is NOT acceptable.  So stop staring at my ass and then whistling at me.  Trust me.  You have no chance--so just stop.  Ok, well maybe Pat...

Get your mind out of the bedroom.  This isn't about what you're thinking.

It's the second day of school and my youngest is already shooting off his mouth...

If only I could start and end the blog with OMFG.  Enough said, right?  My friends out there who have had one know exactly what I'm talking about.  As a 46 year old woman, I should have just completed my 7th mammogram.  Had I started at 40 when I was told to st...

Have you really opened your eyes?  I mean really opened them.  I guess I haven't until yesterday on my first police ride along.  In order to do this, you have to fill out a lot of paperwork.  A lot.  Then, a background check is done.  All of this is escalated up the hi...
