MY Chicago: The Great American City [video] #Chicago #Video

Still from Chicago: Greatest American City

I LOVE Chicago. I’ve lived in Puerto Rico, in New York, and in Utah, but Chicago will always be home.

You don’t have to love this city like I do to love this video, but if you do your pride will swell.

I have an ex who became a friend. Years later, we still hang out on a regular basis and on occasion, the question of “Why didn’t we work out?” comes up in our conversation.single

His reason? I’m too independent. My reason? His issue with my independence.

He says that he prefers a more submissive woman, and I’m not it. I can’t disagree. Submissive is never going to be a word that describes me. The only…

Happy Blogiversary to me! Eight years and counting…

8s
My blog turned 8 sometime between February and March!

Funny story…

Last week someone on Facebook posted that they were having a blogi8sversary. “How cool! I thought to myself.  Why wasn’t I on top of this? Not only had I never thought about celebrating my own blog’s anniversary, but I had no idea how many years it had been or during which month that celebration would fall. So I immediately looked…

As I walked towards my car this morning my face dropped and my mouth opened in complete disbelief. The little delinquents who have been vandalizing the empty townhomes and cars in my neighborhood had tagged my car. There it was, graffiti that I can only assume is gang…

5 tips for growing out gray hair #revolutiongray #silversisters

grayhairgrowthtimeline

A few weeks ago a friend and I were walking towards a club when the bouncer of another place said, “Cool hair.” I said thanks, and we continued walking only to find out the friends we were meeting were at the place where the bouncer had just commented on my hair. When we got to the door, he checked my friend’s ID and as she started to walk past him, I pointed the top of my head and said, “I’m…

This Dallas sportscaster had the best response to Michael Sam coming out so far.

Great words, from some guy who looks like your uncle. Here’s Dale Hansen—the sports anchor for ABC’s Dallas affiliate WFAA—responding to the news that University of Missouri lineman Michael Sam had come out as a gay man, as well as to some people’s immediate response that the revelation would hurt the All-American player’s chances in the NFL draft this spring. Of all the media responses I’ve seen so far, I’m pretty sure that this one from a middle-aged straight white sportscaster guy in Texas is the first one that actually kinda made me tear up. The whole thing is really good, but it was this bit that did me in: “I’m not always comfortable when a man tells me he’s gay. I don’t understand his world, but I do understand that he’s part of mine.” Call me naive, but every once in a while, I feel like maybe our species won’t allow our fears and hatreds to so completely consume us that we literally end our days in a flaming pit tearing one another apart limb from limb until we are just an enormous hill of bilious decaying flesh. I guess I’m an optimist. (by Dennis DiClaudio)
