A Monday Musing - Please Berra With MeOn Valentine's Day. . .  You can observe a lot by just watching Yogi Berra  Recently, I received a notification that the above quote was a "past memory" from Facebook.  There was a time when it was a common practice of mine to share quotes on that platform.

 It's About Time To Celebrate The Snubs. . .  Maybe this post title and its theme came to mind because I know the nominations for the Academy Awards are scheduled to be announced February 8.  Yes, it's a week from today but it's an important reminder that it's now February.

 The RightTo Write. . .    I have enjoyed the writings and storytelling of author David Sedaris for quite some time.  I even mentioned him in an ActiveRain challenge post earlier this year.  He has a style that is uniquely his but admits to moments of hyperbole as he seems accurately “captured” i...
