My 2015 Word Press Blog: year in review.

Have a great 2016 everyone.


I hope you find the posts enjoyable and I also hope that I have not added any new boo boos.

I do have one request though; please LEAVE A COMMENT if you read a post. If you are too shy to comment but enjoyed it; LIKE it. If you loved it; SHARE it on your page. If you hate me or my writing or both, I want to know that too. I do not do this for money. I do this to make people think about things that may be outside of their bubble. I call it awareness.
