My Archie Comic Book and Thanksgiving

Everything's Archie

My Archie Comic Book

and other thoughts

     

Kind of a three part harmony blog tonight.

Last weekend I took a trip down memory lane.  One of my most favorite things to do on summer vacation, besideScan0000.jpgs swim in the ocean, was to go to the "Landing" with my uncle. The Landing was a great little store and deli in North Eastham. I believe it is now called Tides Landing.

Every morning he would drive to the store and get the newspaper and buy me an Archie comic book.  I would have it read by the time we got back to our cottage.

When the beating of your heart matches the beating of the drums....

"When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!"*

I just finished watching the 25th Anniversary Concert of Les Miserables.  The song "Do you Hear the People Sing" really got me thinking.  I was thinking not along the lines of history or the French peoples, (although I'm part French), but more along the lines of all of us as people.  Too philosophical for a Sunday night, but it is the mood.  I was blown away by this song.

DADT Repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell Explain Simply

I never really understood this DADT law. It didn't make any sense.  I can't find anything that really seems simple as to why it was in existence in the first place.  I really don't understand if you are serving your country and working beside your comrades, do you really care what race, religion, yadayadaya they are?

I've never served in the military, but did try to join and was too small.  Harvard University is now going to reinstate the ROTC program.  Why didn't they have it before?

But, I do know if I'm on a team playing a sport, I really don't care what that person is, as long as they play their position/role/job well and I'll cover them and hopefully they will cover me.  I mean, isn't that what being United means? 

I would just like someone to explain simply, why the law was in effect anyway.

Lost Cds the covers

What do you do when you no longer have the cd cover, insert with lyrics that are supposed to be in your cd case? 

If you are a fastidious collector, you probably do not lose these.  If you are haphazard at times, perhaps you are missing one or two. 

Or, have you bought a cd in order to resell only to find the covers are missing? 

I have a collection of them that were used for display in retail for getting cds.  All were in their protective sleeve and indexed.  I've started listing them for sale.  If you have  a particular one you are looking for, please let me know.

The Fab Four Abbey Road ... er Addo Road on addoway

Fab Four on addo Road are going the Addoway.

I had to change the theme of the blog tonight semi spontaneously.  These three store owners stepped up to the plate very quickly. This is Girls' Night Out on the addoRoad. 

Sharlyn is the one with the elegant hat.  I'm the one that has the bananas (what was I thinking?)
Donna just looks tres cool with her scarf and bag of cd's., Cindy is oh too pretty with her bag of goodies. Having fun, shopping, sharing and discovering on addoway.  

Yet, I didn't see a restaurant on the addoway, perhaps they need to add a bit of food for sustenance on the shopping trips?  Maybe a coffee shop at least?  Pizza? A little outdoor cafe, like in Italy? 

Seriously, addoway is all about trust and knowing with whom you are...  Read More

College Football on addoway


I love Saturdays in the fall so I can watch the football games, particularly Notre Dame.
College football is so exciting, unlike pro football which can seem so orchestrated at times.
I was a high school cheerleader for football and yes went out with the quarterback.  Then in college I was a cheerleader for the soccer team.  It was a bit different, and not as popular in the states back then, but it was much fun.  Growing up with the male cousins next door, I played most 'guy' sports, did gymnastics and then in high school played softball and basketball for a time, along with cheerleading. 

The spirit is electric in college stadiums and the players are so talented with passion for the game and team, their University. 

Last Saturday we were talking on the addoway sellers Meet and Greet group on facebook, comparing...  Read More

What is your Ministry?

What is your ministry?  I have not found mine yet.

This is a little about me and I will be brief because it's a long process, but you can check out some of the links if you are inclined. 

It started at my church many years ago and I began to garden. Well, it probably started from birth, but I can't write a novel.   The story is located here. 

You can see this was a grotto landscape.  It was a glorious time in my personal spiritual journey. 

Well what would ensue in the coming years I couldn't foresee.  The story of Bernadette was intriguing to me and links to my gardening at the Grotto.

Life would go on and then my mother got sick.  I tried to take care of her as best I could.  She passed away and I had quit my job at Bose Corporation.  It was a painful time for all.  Without getting into details, this experience led me to being a...  Read More

Follow the Yellow Brick Road

I got a lot going on lately, and have a few blogs rambling around in my head.  I wanted to get this one out there before I forgot. I wasn't sure if I wanted to go with Candy Land or Follow the Yellow Brick Road.  Anyway, this is what was mixed up in my head, thinking about fall and the addoway of my store. 

This is basically an introduction to the new avatar.  I created this avatar based on the new addoway design.  I guess that means I've made the connection now. 

Also want to introduce a couple of newspapers that include other addoway merchants. 
Shop, Share, Save based on the old tag line is curated with automated feeds from twitter and facebook.  If you are active on those venues, chances are your content about addoway will show up. Now called Safer Shopping #addoway...  Read More
