Apparently tens of millions of people have bought or been given these gadgets this Christmas – the ‘Echo’, or the ‘Alexa’ or something similar. Do you have one of these, or would you want one? I guess they appeal to the lazy...

Thinking back a couple years to when our grandson (that's him in the photo) was learning to talk I recall that his first word wasn't one of the usual ones - 'Mummy', or 'Daddy' or even 'Gran' or 'Grandad'. Nope. As a child of the...

MyLot has members of varying ages and varying cultural backgrounds. I grew up on the South Side of Chicago, and there were a lot of illegal recreational drugs there in the 1970s and 1980s. I was not a big "head" or (later term)...

Barbara Radisavlejvic I expect we will stay at home. I'll probably read or be online doing something. I have a blog post due on Wednesday, and I may be working on that.It's never been an important holiday for me, since when I was growing up the adults watched football, there...

I often wonder what others want and how they want to live. Do you wants lots of money? How would you spend it? Does things matter to you? Or.... Do you want that one and only, the love of your life. If so do you think it`ll...

Barbara Radisavlejvic I'm in transition. I'm not sure what I want. I seem to be turning into a hermit. I would like to have a safe country back, two or three close friends to make up for the ones who have died, good health, enough money to keep us in food, utilities, gas and car...

Abibliophobia is a new word to me. It's a long one! I know a couple of people who love to read. They can devour a thick novel in no time. Then they want to read another! Not me. I love to read, but I prefer short stories or...

For a long time I have not read library books. At least for three years. Even when I was it was more How To and less entertainment. Since we have been going in to McPherson so often, I have started picking out fun books to read....

Barbara Radisavlejvic It sounds like you are doing some things you enjoy, just like I've been doing. I've probably read at least seven books in the last ten days. Most were light romances, but I also read a couple of mysteries and some more literary fiction. I enjoyed it all. Hope...

I took photos of a lovely flowering gum/eucalyptus while I was visiting my sister just before Christmas. The guy who had pruned the trees said it was a ‘rainbow gum’ but I don’t think that is correct. I googled rainbow gum and...

Barbara Radisavlejvic I'd almost like to see it close down. I'm enjoying it less and less, but all my networking groups are on it and quitting would be difficult. I do enjoy the contact, however superficial it is, with people who are physically far away now but used to be close...

Yesterday, after an early workout at the gym, 3 loads of laundry, lunch out with hubby, then home to read and nap, our doorbell rang. You know I’m a people person and love people, but! Please don’t stop by unexpectedly,...

Barbara Radisavlejvic I don't blame you a bit. I probably wouldn't do it if the visitor was a woman, but I know what it's like to be ready to enjoy a good book. I like to plan for visitors. I wasn't always this way. Before the internet I was more relaxed and rather enjoyed...

Winter can be fun and since many of us can't avoid it, it's good to get involved in some fun winter activities. I try to stay positive and at my age, walking is about the only fun thing I can manage and do try to get out and...

Barbara Radisavlejvic It's been so long since I've had a party I've forgotten. I actually used to keep a notebook of what I served at major events and even the recipes. I'd repeat dishes that went over well and met other requirements (ease of preparation, ability to stay out on a...

Around Christmas each year, roadside stalls set up in the area selling freshly picked cherries. These are sweet and delicious and we bought a bagful this morning to take away with us when we visit our friends. The lass told...

Barbara Radisavlejvic WE can't buy them at this time of years in California, but when they are in season there is one lady that sells wonderful cherries in front of the post office as part of a fundraiser for her church. She's only there for about a week and then they are gone....

I was sitting in a booth at a Mexican restaurant for lunch today, and Amyra (my niece) was sitting on the other side. All of a sudden she screams, "Woo hoo! Woo hoo!" and throws her hands up in the air. I look to the front of the...

This might be a sensitive subject matter but I wanted some input from my friends here on mylots. So we see the news and the trump border wall how many believe this is right or wrong. I believe people deserve the right to have the...

Barbara Radisavlejvic We need some way to be able to vet the people who enter our country. Many want to come for a better life, but unless they are in immediate danger that truly qualifies one for asylum, they should respect our laws and apply to come legally as people did for...

I think I will be alone on Christmas. Has it ever happened to you? How do you enjoy the day when your heart is somewhere else? Do you do Christmasy stuff or just spend the day reading, listening to music, or watching...

Barbara Radisavlejvic So far I've never been totally alone, but Hubby and I spent Christmas at home in our PJ's doing nothing special this year. I didn't cook a Christmas dinner, we didn't do any decorating, and it was pretty much like any other day. I did play Christmas carols...
