Hello Everyone,

I was just wondering if you could take a look at the link below and possibly spread the word the we need some amazing individuals to help this family out.  I promise you that this is not a scam from someone looking for money.  This happened in Oregon City, Oregon just about a year ago.  If you follow the link you will see all the information in regards to the help we are seeking.  Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

Drugs and more….. January 27, 2012


Can anyone tell me what happened to our children.  Why do they insist on killing themselves?  Oh, I know, they are just experimenting, right?  Well, today the kids drug of choice seems to be one of the dirtiest and nastiest ones of all~~HEROIN.  I am mortified that people believe that it is ok to sell to our kids and adults for that matter.

I remember when I was growing up the drug that everyone seem to be into was CRANK.  Which basically is speed or meth.  I remember seeing friends and family getting so strung out that they wouldn’t sleep or eat for days.  Yuck!  I for one am happy that I never got into any of them.

I am worried about these young ones, that they think it won’t hurt them.  How do we make them understand that these drugs will eventually kill them or make them without a family?  Tough love is what I have always heard, but when I here tough love from people I hear how tough it will be on me as the parent.

Oh but wait, in this day we have another problem that almost seems just as bad if not worse~PRESCRIPTION drugs.  Drug addiction can cause serious, long-term consequences, including problems with physical and mental health, relationships, employment and the law.

Most drug addictions start with casual or social use of a drug.

Recognizing drug abuse in teenagers~

  • Problems at school. Frequently missing classes or missing school, a sudden disinterest in school or school activities, or a drop in grades may be indicators of drug use.
  • Physical health issues. Lack of energy and motivation may indicate your child is using certain drugs.
  • Neglected appearance. Teenagers are generally concerned about how they look. A lack of interest in clothing, grooming or looks may be a warning sign of drug use.
  • Changes in behavior. Teenagers enjoy privacy, but exaggerated efforts to bar family members from entering their rooms or knowing where they go with their friends might indicate drug use. Also, drastic changes in behavior and in relationships with family and friends may be linked to drug use.
  • Spending money. Sudden requests for money without a reasonable explanation for its use may be a sign of drug use. You may also discover money stolen from previously safe places at home. Items may disappear from your home because they’re being sold to support a drug habit.

These are just a few of the things I found online.  I read and learn more everyday so that I recognize and all parents should.  Here is the link for an article http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/drug-addiction/DS00183

Thank you for reading this blog and there will be more later.

Book Reviews


I read about three or four books a month.  They range in varieties.  My favorite genre is probably supernatural or horror.

So, I have decided to do reviews on each of the books that I read.  I would love to hear anyone’s feedback on them as well.

Also, I am an avid collector of older books and own quite a few.  It would be nice to find other people who are collectors and can help with questions I might have when it comes to the rarity of the books or what they might be worth.

Ok, that is it for now but you will be hearing from soon.  Until then Stay Gold!!!!

 

The New Year


Ok, so I haven’t been on here and done a post for a very long time.  But, since it is a new year I thought why not start fresh and try to do at least three a week.

I am extremely excited for this year and all the blessings that I know we are going to receive.  Vibes are running strong through my body and that seems to be a great sign.

So, check back in with me often and I think you will be very happy.

Thank you and Happy New Year to all.
