Energy Vampires

Energy. It's real.  It determines your mood. It's the reason people are drawn to you, or just the opposite. I've been enamored by vampires since I was a kid.

Not Another Christmas Turkey

I sat there on Thanksgiving, completely frustrated and slightly irritated. I didn't want turkey. I had been over turkey on the holidays since around 1995 when my mom found this mutant turkey that fed an army and still sat sliced and frozen in the freezer through May the next year.

"If not, you are walking through life with your fists balled up expecting people to place something in your hands. Impossible." I hate New Year's resolutions. First of all, I have a horrible memory.
