Are you a dreamer? Do you strive to reach your dreams? Many people have dreams, but they never pursue them. Do they just give up? I have always been a dreamer, I admit it. I dream of wonderful things for me and my family, but I would never just give up on a dream.

The other day, I was going through a drawer looking for something when I came across a birthday card I received a few years ago. The Hallmark card, of course, was beautifully designed with pink roses on the front, but the verse it contained didn�t convey a sappy message as cards sometimes do, but rather some advice entitled A Little Guide to Life. The words made a lot of sense, so I thought I would share.
Several years back, as a part of new landscaping, a butterfly bush was planted on the corner of my garage. After only one summer and much to my disappointment, it died. I so enjoyed the pretty purple fragrant flowers it donned and, of course, the beautiful butterflies it attracted.
I am not one of those people who can bound out of bed, grab a shower and head out the door. I have to ease into things. My day has always started with a cup of coffee and the news. Sometimes I would surf Facebook and then I discovered Netflix.
I was perusing Facebook a few days ago when I saw a post about a back-to-school sale and I sadly realized that summer is half over! It seems like yesterday we were getting excited about the first nice days after the winter thaw and really, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be on the horizon before you know it.
Whether you are moving to a new place temporarily or you are moving for a fresh start or new job, the first few weeks can be daunting. You may find yourself thinking repeatedly that you just want to go home. I�ll admit it happens to the best of us and I have come to believe that we all go through a series of stages after moving somewhere new.
As a girl growing up, I couldn�t wait to be a wife and a mom. I envisioned driving around town in a Volvo SUV, picking up the kids from practices. Oooh, the idea of grocery shopping, cleaning my home, baking, wow � it would be so nice. I would grow up to be a June Cleaver extraordinaire. However, since becoming an adult, I�ve changed my mind. Laundry has pushed me over the edge! It doesn�t matter the day. It doesn�t matter the season�in my house it is constant. Wintertime adds extra layers and snow clothes to the mix. Summertime adds beach towels and bathing suits. Unlike you and I, my kids cannot use something more than once nor can they tolerate wearing a wet bathing suit or damp snow clothes. They must break out an entirely set of clothing which also ends up in the laundry.
The very first printing of the Declaration of Independence did not include a list of all the signers. In fact, only two names appeared on the original document: John Hancock and Charles Thomson (president and secretary of Congress respectively). The very first printing of the Declaration of Independence, with signatures, including the members of Congress, was done in January 1777, some six months after the July 4, 1776 independence declaration itself. This printing with signatures was expressly ordered by Congress in these words: �That an authenticated copy of the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCY, with the Names of the MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, subscribing the same, be sent to each of the UNITED STATES.� The job of printing that copy fell to Mary Katherine Goddard.
Summer is a time that seems to urge people to get into shape whether it is to feel better about how they look without the layers of clothing associated with winter or if it is to be proud in your bathing suit during that rare vacation time from work. Whatever your reasoning, it can sometimes be difficult to choose what type of workout to start.
Beginning Friday, July 7, 2017, California will become the first U.S. state to require Monsanto to label its notorious weed killer, Roundup, as a possible carcinogen. A recent decision by Fresno County Superior Court Judge Kristi Kapetan will allow California to proceed with the process of listing glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, as a chemical "known to the state to cause cancer" in accordance with the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, better known as Proposition 65.
