Affordable Dry Cleaning Ideas For Party Dress

The Fight of the Century

The Fight of the Century You’re probably wondering why a topic like this is appearing here. The “fight of the century” is a tagline that is usually connected to boxing, martial arts, or even politics. It would be fitting time-wise for an article about the Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao fight. This fight has nothing to do with any of that. This fight has to do with a fight for life by two very determined souls. One of those souls is Kay Van Hoesen, the founder of this network / site, and the other is Mandy, Kay’s dog. A...

Thought for Today

Thought for Today A Thought. I kind of like this word.  It means the action or process of thinking.  Synonyms being thinking, contemplation, musing, pondering, consideration, reflection, introspection, deliberation, concentration, etc. Just the other day I had a thought about what the most important elements are for survival.  A reflective moment, if you will.  I had been without water in my home for over 24 hours.  I’ve experienced being without heat and electricity for longer periods, but never without water for a long period of time.   I was most thankful for bottled water during my water outage, and I had a place to go for a shower. An hour after restoring water while sitting at the kitchen table having dinner, I sat for an extra 10 minutes thinking about what items people could really live without for an extended period of time.  If you think about it for a moment…years ago people didn’t have electricity or solar power in order to keep warm or cook.   They had to rely on a wood stove or fireplace for heat and some other light source for reading. So the one item we cannot live without is water.  We need it to survive!  We drink it, cook with it, and clean with it.  So the thought/reminder I’d like to share is:  be good to our planet.  The day may come when do not have a water...

Stepping Outside My Groove

Stepping Outside My Groove I often read the blog posts of others on this site.  Many I find amusing as they are intended to be, some educational as those are intended, and other simply entertaining.  While I have been known to be highly opinionated on many subjects, not the least of which is politics, I try to remain open-minded as to all things.  Most times I can pull that off, but here lately it becomes more and more difficult. I read the “header” here on the blogs that “no subject is taboo”.  Well, dear friends, we shall see about that. (please smile as that was my hope with that statement).  Folks who know me personally know what area of internet activity consumes most of my time, but as the title of this post indicates, I am ready to step outside “my groove” and venture into new areas.  I will, as time permits, post thoughts and opinions here on “Here Women Talk”.  I appreciate the opportunity that would allow a male to invade this domain but do not take that statement as anything other than my hope that I may contribute something meaningful, from time to time, to the good that fills this site. Thank you for the opportunity and stand by for future thoughts, opinions and other adventures that come to my aged mind. Tim...

Say YES To YOU-Allow Yourself Special Online Chat Minutes

Allow Yourself Special Online Chat Minutes I’ve mentioned that answering emails in the morning has been found to take up precious needed time from who tend to nurture others before nurturing themselves. That said, there are moments online that can really add to your life. We didn’t have any knowledge of cyberspace when I was growing up. We didn’t even have phones with answering machines. You had to be home when the call came in to know a call came in.  Allow yourself chat minutes! How blessed we are now to be able to communicate with people we know...

“Let Your Answering Machine Help You Say YES To You”

I’m not an advocate of not returning calls from family members, friends and business partners.  However, I’ve been noticing how, even after working on myself to make my own work my first priority whenever possible, I succumb to the ringing of my phone.   I can sabotage my own projects by making everyone else’s time more valuable than mine. When I was a little girl we had telephones but answering machines hadn’t yet been invented. If you’re younger than I and I’m sure most of you are, try to imagine a world in which if you miss a phone call...
