The changing seasons inspire me. Nature inspires me. Animals inspire me.

LIFE, Tina!

Life inspires me!

For some reason, unknown to me, I’ve had more close calls with death than any 10 people I know.Up never give upclose and personal close calls where I thought there would be no tomorrow. And I’ve dealt with pain and surgeries and months, years of coping with same. Raising children as a single mom and messing little girlup again and again sometimes making very poor decisions in the process.

My life experiences shaped who I am. And who I am is just one person, a female who has survived and is very grateful for every morning that I wake up and there is a new day to be in. I take nothing for granted but am hopeful that something that I say or do can positively impact others.

My way of saying “Thank you” to the universe for allowing me to live another day, somtimes in the face of great adversity. So Tina, in summation …

I am inspired by Life, love and all people (without exception) who are each very special and unique – just like you Tina,

With much love,


All life – Sacred and Wonderful!


I thank with all my heart, every single blogger that enriches my life everyday sharing with me so many of the things that I love.

Diversity … is very good … pass it on!

Celebrate the new year with as much diversity in your life as you can!

It’s a very good thing!

Here are three extremely short videos made by people just like you and I.

The first two videos are by talented young people offering their own fresh approach to diversity.

I think we can learn from that too! Enjoy, learn and be inspired!





Happy New Year,



When it comes to “blonde jokes” …

blonde joke

If I hear just one more …

When I saw this beautiful horse with a blonde mane I felt it a moral imperative to post this piece about blonde jokes. Although I’m guessing this horse hasn’t heard as many “blond jokes” as I have (lots and lots), so here’s a few to lighten your load today but first a disclaimer:

As an official blonde … I approve these jokes! Since we’re really amazingly intelligent (I say with great and humble modesty), these jokes don’t really bother us – much! I will add that if you laugh too long and too hard I will be able to find you! 


Locked Out of Car

Two blondes lock their keys in the car. One of the blondes tries to break into the car while the other one watches. Finally the first blonde says “Darn, I can’t get in the car!” The other blonde replies “keep trying – it looks like it’s going to rain and the top is down”.


Keeping a Blonde Busy

Q: How do you keep a blonde busy for hours? A: Write “Please turn over” on both sides of a piece of paper.


Penny L HoweThe interesting thing about “blonde jokes” is that they exist at all! Hair color is not a determining factor for intelligence for either women or men and yet the jokes abound. Psychologists have not been able to come up with a satisfactory reason for the why of this. As for myself, how I feel about being a blonde is summed up quite easily – “viva la difference” -or it works for me!

Thanks for visiting, it is a very good thing to not take yourself too seriously. Sometimes laughing at yourself is a very good thing, have a great day and a better tomorrow!
