Chatting About This and That

  1. Do you have any special plans for this week? I always have plans, but I am not so good at follow thru.  I want to finish fixing up my bathroom, which involves some hemming with iron on tape and hanging a new shelf....of course that was the plan last week.  It is raining for the next couple of days, so I have no reason to do something around the house.  I just have to get off the computer.

Come to My Window-Saturday 9

Melissa Etheridge is a breast cancer survivor and October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Please spread the word about early detection.

1) This song is about a woman passionate about love and willing to pursue it, no matter what "they say." Are you fearless when it comes to public opinion? Or do you worry about what "they" think of you?
Here in the Bible Belt, Missouri's a Red State, I tend to keep somewhat quiet about my thoughts on Religion and Politics as they differ so much, even from close friends.  I am not going to change anyone's mind and I don't actually like debate.  The past two weeks have been different though, all of congress has been stupid. I don't feel the same way about airing some things on my blog as it seems so much more anonymous. So here is my message to the GOP.

 2) Melissa's father was a high school teacher. Tell us about a teacher who had an impact on you.
Unfortunately, I don't remember a teacher who really stands out in a positive way, I had a lot of good teachers over the years.  However, if one counts the teachers who had a negative impact on me, it would be my 8th grade teacher, Mr. Ginsberg, I even remember his name after all these years.  I was on the chubby side when I was 12 or 13, I also was developing my breasts and was self conscious.  I tended to stand around with my arms crossed over my chest.  He called me Buddha, all the time,  and I was hugely embarrassed.  I guess I could have objected now, but at the time, the late 50's, there was no political correctness or anti harassment. It was bullying pure and simple. I guess he thought he was being funny....Not!  He was a terrible person and should not have been a teacher.
