I've been snooping/playing with numbers trying to find out approximately how many people/discussions were on myLot when I first joined back in 2006. It seems there were just over 86,000 discussions the first day I was here...

It was a fun afternoon. I thought the party would start earlier than it did, but the graduation started at 2 and the party at 4. Being early, I arrived before the family, but someone was there taking care of everything, so I...

Just a minute ago the house started shaking and the noise was so loud. I live in Florida and not far from Kennedy Space Center. I forgot there was a rocket going up tonight. Usually my husband tells me but he was out today and...

Val But how exciting - most of us will never experience a rocket being launched.

Do you decide what you need or want to do for the week. And than you write out the goals for what you need to do. Or do you just set goals for the day. Than write those goals for the day and do them. When you have a big goal do...

Val I am a total goal setter, long term short term daily. It's the only way I achieve what I do in my life.

The bald eagle is America's national bird. Let's say I am walking our pup Molly in one of the many parks we like to frequent. If I happen to spot an eagle feather on the ground, federal law requires I lay not one finger on that...

Yesterday when I was on FB I received a message from a cousin, and found out she has a specialty shop near where my son lives. I also found out she moved here permanently from Arizona, where she was a part year resident, living...

Val I'm glad you made some connections in Melbourne after we failed to do so in Adelaide!

We have been in Melbourne, Australia just over a week and in a few days we’ll catch a ferry to sail to Tasmania. We’ve stayed in our caravan at a park and most days have driven to our son’s tiny rented house to help him with some...

Lynn Fowler @lynnief (1144) • Australia 2 Jun
Maybe you have entered some writing competitions over the years. In this post I'd like to give you a little insight into the other side - i.e., running them. Through my publishing business, Birdcatcher Books, I have now run five...

I gave my novel to a friend to read for me. It's considered a beta reader. I was hesitant as I wasn't feeling 100% comfortable that my story was ready. I got the manuscript back last week with her pages of typed up notes. Some of...

I’ve just read a post by Fiacre (xFiacre) about an elderly lady who is keeping her carers and family happy but by devious means. It’s worth reading. The post is: http://www.mylot.com/post/3185471/a-naughty-old-girl. It reminded...

I know many of you think our West Australian town names are very funny, even strange perhaps, but believe me, that is nothing compared to some we’ve seen in the Gippsland region of Victoria, Australia. The best so far have been Mt...
