Figuring out who I am

Baa Baa Black Sheep

      No Comments on Baa Baa Black Sheep

I’ve said many times that I have little in common with the folks I share DNA with.  Certainly not looks or politics.  Definitely not temperament or taste in music.  I cannot remember what my sister and I talked about before she had kids- 95% of our conversations now seem to revolve around those two goofballs.  It IS true my sister… Read more »

I’m mad as heck and……

      No Comments on I’m mad as heck and……

I’m not going to take it anymore! As luck would have it, today is I’m Not Going to Take it Anymore Day.  That fits in perfect with what’s on my mind so I see no choice but to run with it! I’m not into making New Years Resolutions.  They only lead to disappointment in February.  So I don’t make them. … Read more »

      2 Comments on Why am I Doing This?

After finding out I have a blog most people ask what it’s about.  As I’ve discussed before, that can be a tricky question to answer, but I try.  http://www.beckypalmer.me/2016/03/whats-a-knotty-thing/ But even trickier is when people ask WHY I have one.  The simplest answer is that it’s my hobby.  I don’t do arts and crafts.  I don’t enjoy cooking.  I do like… Read more »

In spite of my best intentions I do still get into occationsal disagreements with folks online.  I konw it’s stupid to even try 99% of the time, but sometimes, like a good share of us, I see something so ridiculous that I just can’t let it go by.  Today (yesterday to you readers) has been one of those days.  However,… Read more »

One is the Most Complicated Number

      3 Comments on One is the Most Complicated Number

On Sunday afternoon I watched a video posted by a well-known social media expert (name being withheld as I’ve not asked his permission to use it).  I’ve never met him personally, but my husband has several times at various social media events he’s attended over the years.  This gentleman really opened up in the short video and stated that he… Read more »

Maritime Day

Today is Maritime Day- a day to remember and thank the men and women who work in, on or near cargo boats and ports. In spite of all the advances in modern technology, more cargo is transported by water than other method we have! I have wondered from time to time what leads someone to choose the life of a… Read more »
