I can't say it enough, this message I keep being told "THERE IS NO SHAME IN ASKING/GETTING HELP"
It seems shameful to have to ask for help. Even as a woman in men dominated fields where you are told "just man up, grow some balls already!" Or really the worse one "you are the strongest woman I know you can get over this". Well you know what? No one can. You have to be very brave, become your own hero and ASK for help, DEMAND help if you have to. It takes time to find the right…Continue
I am sure everyone has heard about the two Firefighters that lost their lives in Boston, and there were a couple others that slip my mind, but anyway lets all say a prayer for all of the LODD.

Now that its starting to warm up around here its been in the mid 50's and then mid 40's, but anyway the snow is melting and we all know that its time for creeks, rivers and streams to start flooding if they haven't already they will be and I hope you have been reading about what to do and not do in floods and how to help each other.

I share this as its been a horrific, terrifying 21 days+ of no sleep, anxiety, fear, heart & chest…Continue

Good morning to everyone, hope you all are doing well and driving is getting better since we have had several storms and NY has missed some of them but not all, some of you get snow and ice and shut down most stuff and that's because you do not get snow and ice like we do here in the Northeastern states. But some of us that get the stuff still don't know how to drive like you just did going through that intersection without looking. But look at it this way spring is just about two weeks away…Continue
