2014 – A Very Good Year!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,600 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

The Cloud Came Over the Mountain


Coming home one evening not too long ago, I saw our mountain enveloped in cloud and mist, and of course, I ran inside to get my camera pronto.  Now if there was a way to get rid of those electrical lines.  But without electricity, there would be no computer, no WordPress, and hence, no post.  😉  Have a wonderful day!  Slainte, Lisa


A Bad Case of Pollitis

polltakerThis is it…I have discovered a have a particularly virulent form of the dreaded disease of pollitis. What is “pollitis”, you may ask? Quite simply, it is the need to publish and collect data on polls, but then NEVER posting the results for the blog readers. The polls just disappear into thin air, as if they never existed. The sufferer of pollitis feels more and more compelled to publish new polls, to see how their readers feel about all manner of things, and the cycle of the disease continues.

So today, I am making a big step in my recovery. I will officially reveal all the results of the past polls (at least the ones that I remember in my advanced stages of this disease). So read them if you are interested, ignore them if they are boring, but feel good that you are helping a pollitis victim recover. 😉 Slainte, Lisa
Postscript: In putting these up, I have discovered yet another facet of the disease…I do not know how to publish just the results. So unfortunately you must click on “view results.” Your workload has been added to, and for that, I am sorry. 🙂

There are more, but it is too embarrassing to continue….

Feeling, Seeing, Hearing, No Words

This isn’t quite me, yet! 🙂

Some mornings you wake up, ready to write your new blog.  You log on, and stare at the “Add New Post” heading.  Nothing.  No theme or topic pops up into your mind.  Uh-oh…it’s going to be a picture only or a video day, you say to yourself.  But, rebelliously, you don’t want that; you want to write something.  You look around…blue skies, green trees, bright sunshine.  All very beautiful and inspiring.  You hear amazing music in your mind, and words and musical textures swirl around, waiting to be discussed at large on the blog.  Still nothing.  You feel a myriad of feelings, some good, some grateful, some confused and anxious.  But you don’t want to share all of that today.

So I continue to stare, and mindlessly type these words, and this is what you get.

Yeah, buddy.

“Sometimes you feel like a nut; sometimes you don’t.”  (Almond Joy commercial, 1970’s)

“We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.”  (Romans 8:26b)

Enjoy your day, feeling, seeing and hearing…even if you have no words to express it all.  Slainte, Lisa
