Top 10 for 2014


I haven’t done this in a while, but everyone loves a Top 10, so I thought I’d oblige. Personally, I’m looking forward to 2015 because 2014 has been awesome for me! For anyone who is going through a rough time, be encouraged! Know that it is only a season and it will pass.

These are the top posts, as far as you are concerned!

10. Top 10 Reasons Why 2011 Sucked – Okay…I was in a place when I penned this post…

9. Fruitvale Station – No surprise that this made it with the last five months we’ve had. I’m looking for the corner, so that we can all turn it.

8. 100 Days – Civil disobedience…I love it! Approaching his birthday, guess who else would have loved it…(hint: January 15th)

7. Spare the Rod – WHOA!!!!! I got in trouble for this one. A mother didn’t like my opinion and yelled at me… How dare I share my opinion on my blog…

6. Turkeys Are Done – This is dedicated to all my breast cancer survivors and to those who lost the battle. Together we WILL Save the Tatas!

5. Rant: Bring Back Our Girls – And they are still gone…WTF!!!

4. Family Tattoo – Y’all know how much I love POTUS and the first fam. How much more regular can you be not wanting your daughters to get tatted up!!!!

3. Orange – This one surprised me. There must be some fellow “artistics” in the house!

2. RIP Mike Brown – The jury is NOT still out on this…no indictment. Let’s see if the Feds can do any better. Either way, this makes me sad and bone tired…but, I am inspired that so many, especially the young, are showing their outrage. Let’s keep on it and make some demands.

Drum roll please!!!

And the top post of 2014….

1. New Rules for Women in Combat – I must have some service members and/or families following my blog! I am honored and thank you for your sacrifice. It makes me feel good that an older post still gets so many views. A virtual salute to you.

Dancing Is My Medicine

This video brought tears to my eyes. For all of us with loved ones who bravely fight cancer.

Deborah Cohan danced with her surgical team before her double mastectomy to celebrate life. I love it!

The Turkeys Are Done


Tattoo artist, Vinnie Myers, of Finksburg, MD has inked more than 4,000 women in a unique way; he’s given them nipples. That’s right. Breast cancer survivors who have undergone reconstructive surgery have the ta tas, but no nipples or areolas…enter Myers.

From the midwest to international, women seek him out to “get a Vinnie” and replace what they’ve lost. Women say they become whole again.
