My passions are writing and creating poetry. I write for several sites online and have four themed blogs on Wordpress. Please follow me on Twitter.
Dog of My Dreams
TV Dogs Pete Pete the Pup was called Petey by the Little Rascals. The TV series “The Little Rascals” ran for 13 episodes and was released in 1955. Pete was an American pit bull terrier and I just loved that large ring around his eyes. In the series the children all loved him and he entertained and protected them. Even though the series was before my time as a child I watched it in reruns.
Father woke up in the morning he knew what was ahead. Down to the kitchen he ran and his wife gave him his coffee. Then kissed him on the cheek, gently reminding him of the task ahead. His wife was going Christmas shopping and his children were at Nana’s. His in-laws were coming to dinner, a brightly decorated house to see.
Hometown New York City Brooklyn
For people living in small to mid-size hometowns, it is easy to write about their towns. However, for someone like me who was born and raised in New York City, it is rather difficult. Therefore I will look upon the borough of Brooklyn as my small town away from the teeming streets of Manhattan and the other boroughs. If you know about Brooklyn and find a neighborhood missing it is just that I wrote about all the ones I knew and where I have been. I was born in a very quiet corner of Brooklyn called Bay Ridge so I began my tour there. Williamsburg in Brooklyn is a vibrant, active community represented by many different ethnic groups such as Italians, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, and Hasidic Jews. Greenpoint is the northernmost neighborhood in this borough and lies to the southwest of Williamsburg. As I continue I will paste the links for the neighborhoods I have written about below.
Ghostly Spirits in North Carolina
The Andrew Johnson Home is located in Raleigh, North Carolina in a small historic park called Mordecai Square. In the park is also a small chapel and a small building once used as a law office as well as a two- story mansion called Mordecai Manor.

British Columbia is among the most popular destinations in Canada. Whistler the center of the biggest winter sports area in Canada is located at the foot of the Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. It is a world-class ski resort and hosted the downhill ski events for the Winter Olympic Games in 2010.
The European country of Estonia is located in northern Europe. The country borders the Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Finland. It also borders Russia to the east and Latvia to the south. It has more than 1,500 islands and diverse terrain with rocky beaches, old-growth forests, and many lakes.
Wonderful West Palm Beach
Rosemary Square or The Square is an exciting Mediterranean-themed retail and entertainment center. This is the place for great shopping, dining, entertainment, and live music experiences. You can also spend some time people-watching. In the open-air Plaza local bands perform in the evenings on weekends.
Teen Idols of Yesterday
It is enough to say that to have a complete and happy youth is to be able to sigh and cheer for teen idols. To have your favorites that make a teenage girl's heart beat faster. The motto is to love them desperately and to never forget them or their music. Unfortunately, these times are over but never in my memory.
Strolling Down Lovers Lane 1940s
Love is a wondrous thing. There are many songs written about true love, wishing for love, unrequited love, and even heartbreak when breaking up. I want to take you through the years along Lovers Lane with popular love songs from the 1940s, '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, and '90s.
Hope Springs Eternal
I am a wreck. A total wreck. What has happened? Well, I have not been swept away by any natural disaster, no speeding express train has struck me, and I have not been in a car accident. What has happened is that another Vocal Challenge has come and swept over me like an artificial tsunami. I always check out the challenges and choose the ones that I am sure I can handle and follow the instructions. So far, as much as I have submitted not a nibble.
