Did you know that May 21 is Chardonnay Day? If you read this blog regularly, you probably do; here’s last year’s post where Helen and I traveled to various wineries in Ventura County.

Did you know that May is National Pet Month? And do you have any idea how many pets are waiting at shelters for HOMES?

The thrill is gone.
The thrill is gone away from me. Although I’ll still live on, But so lonely I’ll be.
I’m not the only one to feel this way, now that Riley B. King aka BB King (Sept. 16, 1925 – May 14, 2015) passed away yesterday. It wasn’t until I was in college at UC Santa Cruz when I went to a happy hour at the Whole Earth and I was loving the music. It was eternal, like I’d known it my entire life, it spoke to me like it was my mother tongue and yet I didn’t know what it was, I didn’t know the name’s of the songs or who wrote them or who sang them.

53 Interesting Facts about the Number 53 #18: 53% of U.S. Women are Moms

May 10, 2015


Happy Mother’s Day!

Did you know that US  Census figures from 2010 say that 53% of 15- to 44-year-old women are mothers? Not sure the percentage that is sleep deprived but I bet it is most of us…



In 1994, Census Data indicates that 53 percent of these moms were in the labor force. And if they had a bachelor’s degree, that figure was 70 percent. I would imagine that more recent would indicate that even more moms are working these days.

Whether or not a mom is working outside of the home, moms are pretty hard working.

And we couldn’t do it without the help of other moms who step up when we can’t be in three places at once OR without the women who do not have children of their own who also help make it all happen.

So let’s give it up for MOMS–whether you birthed the babies, raised the babies, or just were there to help us– here’s to YOU! Cheers and thank you!
