I wonder if I’m the only one? Fact versus opinion.

Today I found myself becoming extremely frustrated and angry looking at a Facebook post.  Someone was stating a fact that was actually an opinion.    As I was getting ready to debate the author’s point, I realized something.  I’m not sure I even disagree with their point, so why was I about to pick a fight?…

It’s a New Year

It’s the beginning of a new year and I would like to talk about responsibility. This is not a political post by any means so if you are headed down that road – please don’t. I am talking about personal responsibility – both good and bad. There were two situations in December that stood out…
