Don’t be a gossiper!

By Rosie Moore One of my favorite comics is Snuffy Smith. It emits a lot of little gems each day. Here is one of them: “Here comes the’ parson’s wife, Loweezy.” “Let’s tell her th’ juicy gossip, Elviney.” “I don’t know, Loweezy!! Don’t she frown on gossip?” “You bet she does–th’ whole time she’s listenin’!!” […]

Counting your blessings

By Rosie Moore Did you ever stop and count your blessings? Name them one by one? In the dictionary the word blessing is defined as enjoying happiness, bringing pleasure and confer prosperity and well-being. That covers a lot of ground. It’s also a short prayer before a meal or the act of one who blesses. […]

Chain Letters

By Rosie Moore Did you ever get a  chain letter? I did many years ago. I would read them out of curiosity then throw them away. The way my life was going as far as luck was concerned, no way was a letter going to change it! There are two types of chain letters. A […]

ANAGRAMS

By Rosie Moore When I was eight years old… uh,oh, here I go delving back in the past again! I think I know, no, I KNOW why I do that so much—because my happiest memories are in the past. This one I’m about to relate is a combination happy and not-so-happy. I loved visiting my […]

Limitless

By Rosie Moore There’s a TV show called Limitless on just now but I’m not afraid to bet it is not limitless. It will be on a while, then fade away as all TV shows are prone to do. Air is limitless, the sun is limitless, rain is limitless, wind is limitless, the sky is […]

Recipe Time

By Rosie Moore There are millions of recipes in the world, literally, from all the countries of the world, and America has, I can imagine, maybe half of them. I’m just assuming here. I love to cook (and eat). I get a lot of recipes from cookbooks which I collect –I have maybe fifty or […]

Life’s Extras

By Rosie Moore Archibald Rutledge, an American poet and educator, once wrote: “I once had a curious experience with a star. I was on the path to my farm at dusk when I was overtaken by a violent storm. The rain came down into howling darkness, the thunder and lightening were appalling. A bolt struck […]

Is there anything good on TV?

By Rosie Moore A few weeks ago I wrote about my favorite TV shows on Me-TV from the sixties and seventies. My granddaughter asked me, “But, Nana, don’t you like any of the programs that are on today?” Yes, indeed, I do. And here they are. My very favorite, The Good Wife is going off […]

Are you sleepless in Knoxville?

By Rosie Moore William Shakespeare, that renowned author from long ago, once wrote in his play, Macbeth, “Sleep….knits up the raveled sleeve of care….sore labor’s bath, balm of hurt minds…chief nourisher in life’s feast.” That sentence sums it up for me. One of my favorite movies is “Sleepless in Seattle.” The main character, played by […]

Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood

By Rosie Moore When my children were youngsters in elementary school, they would hurry home to watch TV. They didn’t watch  Lost In Space, The Twilight Zone, Hogan’s Heroes, or Gunsmoke. They watched a program for children narrated by a laid-back, soft-spoken Pennsylvanian named Fred Rogers. His episodes would always start the same way. He […]
