Just a Girl, on the Couch, in Her Football Jersey: Monday, Brady did not attend the Optional training for the team. He was in Qatar with his family, visiting our troops, and working his Best Buddies Charity. It was optional training, and though it is rare for Brady to miss these OTAs, sometimes life does intercede.
Autism Does Not a Killer Make
In a million years, I did not think I would have to start another bloggy message about mental health, other than Autism information. Yet, here I am. Why? Because we have had another shooting. Worse yet, a school shooting. The politicians are asking for gun control. The students, God bless them, want gun control.

Parent Shaming. Charlie, who is 6 and High Functioning, needs new shoes for school, and here you sit, in the middle of the shoe department. Charlie has been trying so hard to keep it together.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disability; signs typically appear during early childhood and affect a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. ASD is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a “spectrum condition” that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. 1 out of every 68 children has been identified as being on the spectrum.
Dear Liberals: So you say "Love is Love " and that you stand against racism, and you want equal rights for women, but you don't really mean it. Love is only love when it fits your definition. Racism is only wrong if you are the right color on the outside. Equal rights for women, but only if you are willing to drop your own morals and beliefs.
The Battle for Freedom of Religion
The battle over religious rights is escalating to new heights. It seems everywhere we look, some Atheist group is trying to force a Christian organization to stop an assembly outside of the church or to take down a symbol that shows and speaks of their faith. However, this is a strike at Freedom of Religion.
