Avery is 10 weeks old and has [...]
For years I was a proud conservative Republican. Today's Republican Party has lost its way and has not done the business of the people. Today’s GOP is not the GOP I grew up with, they are a black stain on our Republic. Approximately one year ago I left the Republican party and registered as an [...]

My good friend Phil and his wife Gerri have shared yet another amazing Italian Pasta Dish. Stop by Excuse Us For Living and see the recipe!
Phil & Geri
Excuse us for living, but we can’t believe we didn’t share this superb pasta recipe yet! It’s so good and we have it so often on Friday nights! What were we thinking? Here it is! But first there always has to be a backstory that goes along with our recipes. That’s just the way it is! These recipes don’t just pop up into our heads. They evolve for good reason…at least to us!
Pictured here is Al Manfredi, sixth grade teacher, High Mountain Road, Franklin Lakes, New Jersey. Al loved Italian food and bragged and bragged how good arugula was and how much he loved arugula, most likely in salads we guess. We didn’t even know what arugula was until I worked with Al at High Mountain Road School as his principal. It’s a…

Well said June!
Everyday the world will drag you by the hand yelling, “This is important! And this is important!, You need to worry about this! And this!” And each day, its up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No, This is what’s important.” – Lain Thomas
As someone who religiously got up early from the age of about 6 to study for spelling tests, its really hard to accept anything less than perfection. I remember the first time I got 89% in a class test in Primary school. I bawled in front of everyone because it was less than 90% – needless to say they all thought me mad.
Thats the standard I’ve set my whole life, thats the stupid level of perfection I wanted to achieve in everything every single day. I’ve realised how destructive and unhealthy that is. Thats the thing about…

Note from the management of Padre Tatro's Study: Today I'm going to talk about two maybe three hot button issues. The biggest is mental health. We need mental health reform in this nation, more access to it and better treatment of those who suffer from it. I will also touch on racism and politics in [...]
Mrs. Gray is spot on in this little jewel of wisdom! ❤
There’s a difference between letting the past guide us and living in it. Letting yesterday remind us of where we came from and showing us what to do and often times, not to do can be a good thing. But sometimes, we let the past consume us and forget to live for today and the days yet to come.
To see our potential, grow, and learn, we must move forward. It’s time to quit looking in the rearview mirror or else we might not see where we’re headed and crash. It can be easy to get lost in nostalgia or let the fear that the past stuck with us take over our minds, but it’s important not to forget the world keeps turning no matter what we do. We want to go along for the ride, don’t we? 😉
Apple's latest update in their iPhone software is causing a stir. They've deleted Good Friday and Easter from the iCalendar. This upsets me greatly. I use Apple Products for I feel they have greater use of technology. This is shameful and must be corrected. What I do not understand is why they kept Christmas on [...]
