Just Asking

Do you see what I see?

(In response to last week’s column) Sometimes the best advice you can give is none at all. What I’m trying to say and what most of my responses said is that sometimes if you just listen to your friend, they can usually figure the problem out themselves. I know sometimes you want to take your friend, shake them, and scream, “SNAP OUT OF IT!” This is definitely not the way to handle it. Just saying…

Two Cents Troubles

Untitled document (In response to last week’s column)After speaking with a well know hotel chain, I found out that the trial size shampoo and lotion are inclusive. I’ve thought for years that I was getting away with something and here the joke is on me.Just saying… Who’s the expert?Do you find ...

Speed bumper

(In response to last week’s column) This is apparently a very stinky issue, one I’m not willing to touch. I understand both sides. One side says it’s rude (true) and the other side says it’s not a law (true). I guess it’s circumstantial, but I’ll just stick with my small cubby! Just saying…

Bathroom Ballet

(In Response to last week’s column) I got a great comment from a reader that I’d like to share with all of you. I felt she stated it perfectly. “I found that the best me to be is me, sometimes a few pounds over, sometimes with a bad hair day. The most important thing is who you are on the inside; it radiates to let your inner sunshine out!” Just saying…

Let the sunshine in

(In response to last week’s column) There is no response, because there was no column! I had an extremely bad day and my new editor, Natalie, was kind enough to tell me “no worries, I’ve got you covered.” Thank you, Natalie, and thanks to those of you who called Neighbors and asked about the column. Just saying…

To speak or not to speak?

(In response to last week’s column) It appears that the only way to know if a remedy will work for you is simple trial and error. We all react to things differently. I’m not sure if gin soaked raisins will help my knees or not, but it sure does sound yummy, so why not. I did, however, brush my teeth with hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, water and toothpaste, and although it tasted like drywall, my teeth did look whiter. Just saying…

Is it in the “stars?”

Untitled document (In response to last week’s column)I got a response that said it perfectly: “Regardless of a volunteer’s ability to help an organization, we greatly appreciate any sacrifice an individual makes to help us carry out the mission. A dollar at the checkout is helpful to someone, somewhere; but ...

So much to do, no time to do it

Untitled document (In response to last week’s column) Most people said my grumpiness last week was “writer’s block.” Those closer to me know better — I have plenty to talk about. Experts say hormones, diet and exercise, dehydration and the list goes on. The fact of the matter is simple ...

Who’s in charge of birth control?

Untitled document (In response to last week’s column) When you laugh at someone else’s pain or misfortune, it’s called Schadenfreude. That’s right, there’s a name for this bizarre behavior. Everyone seems to have experienced it! I, myself, have done it quite a few times. Watching a goose sneak up on ...

Spring Break fiasco

Untitled document (In response to last week’s column) Some of us may be better servers if given the opportunity, but we’re still no better as people, no matter what our profession is. Anyone who shows up to work and is trying their best deserves respect, hands down, no excuses — ...
