Thursday Thirteen #34--Random Conflicts
Is it sort of like answering the door in your pajamas when a new reader visits your blog for the first time and the post they read is a 'Debbie downer' rant on how bad you feel?
There are women who have regular hair appointments and then there is me...who realizes it is time to get a haircut when my side combed bangs cover my eyes and I trip on a fallen branch.
For almost a decade I have hated the low or even 'regular cut' jeans because only a 20-year-old has a flat

The minutes from Congress this week, "I know you are, but what am I?"

Homeless will be assigned to community service or a fine when caught. A fine? Has the world gone mad?
Something I never thought I would read in a headline "revenge porn." ?
In case you or your children do not know this...the natural color of water is NOT green or even 'greenish'.
The shortest war in history lasted only 38 minutes...the Anglo-Zanzibar War of 1896.
There is a restaurant in Pittsburgh called The Conflict Kitchen and it only serves food from nations the U.S. is at odds with.
Only 11% of jewelry stores in the U.S. have a conflict-free diamond policy. Where do you buy your diamonds, sweetie?
