Dear Assurance Plus: Gee, Thanks.

Today is the first day of NaBloPoMo. That means I will be posting every day this month. Um…that isn’t too unusual for me, is it? So why did I join? Why not? Regardless, here we are and I’m ready to go, which must mean I’m […]

Feh. Thoughtless Thursday. Whatever.

So much for Thoughtful Thursday. I didn’t read the paper today. Well, except my horror-scope. I stayed focused for eight entire hours working. I did carpool TWICE. I ate plain low-fat yogurt with animal feed trail mix for breakfast for the fourth day in a […]


Yes, another Nearly Wordless Wednesday has arrived. Where does time go? I can tell you it seriously left while I was “working” yesterday because I achieved very little and have now successfully blamed it on Bach and Brahms who were more for meditating and gardening, […]

Work, Beethoven, and Bad Drivers

I have a treat for you, but before I get to that, thanks to those of you who took the time to offer your suggestions about staying focused yesterday. I didn’t have a list as some of you mentioned, and which I’ve used in the […]

I owe, I owe, so off to work I go.

SPAM: Earning Money From Home & Man Units

Can someone please tell me what in hell is going on with all the spam already? It’s completely out of control. Wasn’t the Spam King thrown in the slammer? Well, at least one was, but wait, isn’t this guy a spammer, too? And, uh, this […]
