Spread the love          119SharesI am frustrated, and I will tell you why. My Facebook and Twitter feeds constantly blow up about this issue or that issue.

Spread the love          I decided to write this post because I found so many friends and acquaintances were confused about other people’s opinions on Fidel Castro after his death was reported. Many asked me why some people thought he was a hero or unjustly criticized. Let me give you a brief history of the Cuban Revolution […]

It has some great tips from Ginsburg herself, who I admire greatly. While I love reading all of the great content out there about raising the next generation of women leaders, […]

Spread the love          I am sipping a nice hot latte while sitting outside listening to the birds sing their evening songs. There is nothing that I love more than to be outdoors enjoying fall weather. My latte is a decaf, since my cutoff for caffeine is about 3PM. It seriously took me decades to figure that […]
