    #a2zchallenge with lightning and thunder on 4M

    Another weekend bites the dust. It’s time to lace up my blue suede shoes and get back to rock n’ rolling with the A to Z Challenge.  This cat is ready to rock n’ roll to the next letter in the alphabet! This is an off-week with no theme ~ a free for all pick! You know what that means, whatever moves ya, then we wanna hear it. I goofed up last week. Well, not entirely,  I did accidentally plug a song into my mix that worked with the theme and that was kinda cool in a weird way. Anywho, I using last week’s weather-related theme for my freebie picks.…

    Thursday ?s & Thoughts: Is asparagus a cancer curer?

    Amanda from SelfSagacity and I are teaming up to bring to you our a brand new weekly meme called… At the moment, this is still a work-in-progress venture. For those of you who have been so faithful in keeping with Amanda’s Thursday Two Questions, then keep doing what you been doing as nothing has changed. At this point, we don’t have an official button for the hop, so please bear patience with us as we decide. I am always intrigued a bit when I get an email making outstanding claims of a miraculous cure. I tend to take these reports with a grain of salt recognizing there may be some…

    Thursday Thoughts: God’s Country

    We had the privilege last Friday to go to the mountains. This is probably the last view from Clingman’s Dome we will have a chance to see this year.   On December 1st, the Smoky Mountain Park Service will close access to this part of the park. Don’t worry, though. The schedule re-open is April 1st. Clingman’s Dome is the highest point in the Smoky’s. The climate there is similar to southern Canada. This is what we saw all the way. I have seen snow showers in May in the upper elevations while conditions in the foothills – Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Cherokee are the opposite on top of the…

    Thursday Thoughts: What’s behind the new name?

    This week, I launched this new blog. One of my bloggy friends asked, “What’s behind the new name?” That’s a good question. I stated that I wanted to make the blog address move from Cathy Kennedy’s Blog (removed non-working link) for sometime. I began that blog when I published my first and only children’s story. The blog title was simple. It was me. However, that blog didn’t evolve to suit the name the way I wanted. I am curious. I am Cathy. This gave birth to my new blog name… Curious as a Cathy. This blog isn’t about cats at all. I don’t own a cat. I do like cats.…

    Under the Milky Way and Stars

    What’s on mind this Thursday? That’s simple….I have music on my mind. Ultimately music fills my senses in an uplifting spiral of all things good, especially if the music is…. As a kid, I remember gazing up into the nightly sky and seeing a picture as beautiful as the one above. I wonder what was beyond the Milky Way. Was it the gateway to another world?     On summer nights, we use to lay on the ground trying our best to count all the stars or to find the Big Dipper.  Do you have fond memories like these?   A dialogue between Mufasa and Simba from the Disney children’s…

    Every day is a gift/Just for Fun

    In the aftermath of being sick for months… followed by surgery, I think I’m kinda getting myself to a point where normal looks like normal again. Honestly, I was a couch potato from the mid-April to late June. Now, I feel like I can finally say, I’m back! While I was going through all the whole “being out of commission” my husband and son were wonderful. They did all the grocery shopping, restocking the pantry & refrigerator, cooked, laundry, and more.  The help was tremendous. I am completely grateful for these fine, loving men God gave me.  Unfortunately, there are chores that fall outside the basic category that only the Chef…

    This Thursday….Alphabe Lesson, Favorite Things, & Two Questions blog hops

    What do you call a small three-masted Mediterranean sailing ship with lateen and sometimes square sails?**Definition from New Oxford American Dictionary** Any answers? Yep, I thought not. Don’t worry, if you had asked me the same question I would have been left scratching my head for days and days. The answer…   As you may have guessed, Xebec (ˈzēˌbek). I’m not a boat person, but I thought the word was interesting enough to see what these types of ships look like, especially those with square sails…     When I first saw this I thought pirates or more precisely pirate ships.   What makes the Xebec style ships appealing is their…

    Scams

    Image credit Anyone who is actively using the Internet has been the target of some sort of scam from casually receiving, clicking on, or falling for. These cyber scoundrels are very crafty to disguise their deceptions. The most common form of scams are found in emails. Each day, we will get a handful of said emails wanting us to click on a website or someone wants to give us a small fortune or someone is seeking companionship or a friend needs money stranded in a foreign country. These are just few that come to mind and I dare say you get them, too. Simply put, this is a cyber thief’s…

    Malware is Malicious

    All was peaceful. All was comfy. Until…DS disturbed my deep slumber yesterday morning. “Mother, I’ve gotta go out today!” Groggy, I replied. “But, it’s raining.” ” I have to!” “Why?” “Come here, I’ll show you.” The clock beside my bed read a few minutes past 8 o’clock. It was time to get up anyhow. I shuffled into the dining room which has evolved into command central over the years and our beautiful Ethan Allen table used as a desk. One day that’ll change but that’s a story for another time.  I plopped down in front of DS’s computer. He pressed the power button.  “There is something seriously wrong with my…

    Jingles

    I have a special request…say a prayer for DD#2. She’s in the hospital with pneumonia (admitted yesterday morning). We saw her last night. To look at her, you would not know she’s sick but she struggles to speak and is short-winded. At 2 pm today, she’s having a blockage removed in her lung. I’ll follow-up with an update ASAP. Just for fun and maybe because I’m just a wee bit unprepared today for obvious reasons. I decided to jump on the first idea popping into my mind this morning for today’s lesson on the letter “J”. Source   Commercials today lack the creativity and memorabilia of jingles’ past. These few…
