It’s Almost Time

In about one hour I will be using the Uber App (Morgan Malone)  Like many of you, I am not comfortable when it comes to doing something for the first time, especially if it means causing a problem for myself or others.  When I decided I would use Uber to get me to the hospital this morning I was not anxious, in fact, I was feeling invincible that day, Helen Reddy – I Am Woman (1971) – YouTube.

However, last night I had to have my son Alex download the app and walk me through using it (easy peasy!)  I also did a shoutout on Facebook asking how early do I need to request my ride since it is an hour away.  My doctor only performs surgery on Mondays on the far west side of town, and I live South and East.  Oh well!  In addition to all this I know I am stressing because I have had a migraine since Saturday despite my monthly injection and meds.  The medication has been working, so I am assuming that this is my brain and nervous system acting up.

Before a year ago I never had heard of Pelvic Floor therapy or surgery.  It seems to be the new age surgery.  “Pelvic floor reconstruction is a group of surgical procedures used to treat pelvic organ prolapse, a condition that occurs when the muscles of the pelvic floor are weakened or damaged, often due to childbirth. Other causes include repeated heavy lifting, chronic disease, or surgery.”

“Healing takes around three months, so during this time, I should avoid any task that can put pressure on the repair i.e. lifting, straining, vigorous exercise, coughing and constipation.

Although it is recommended to take six weeks off work, I plan to be at my computer tomorrow Tuesday; it’s What In the World with Paul Seaburn and his sidekick, John.

Thank you Cleveland Indians!

I love my Cleveland Indians, and I have since the early 80s were when I moved from Cincinnati to Northeast Ohio.  Born in Detroit, Michigan I grew up being a Tigers fan, and then I move to Minneapolis, and I followed the Twins because of Harmon Killebrew (, my father’s name was Harmon too so of course, I rooted for them in the 60s.  When living in Philadelphia I did not adopt the Phillies, I went back to my original home team the Tigers and continued to love the Tigers until I connected with my boys of summer, The Cleveland Indians.


The Indians were not a strong contender in the 80s, but they did put in the effort at the old ballpark where I first saw them play.  When they moved to Progressive Field (known as Jacob’s Field in the day), I continued to root for them as Alex was introduced to the game as young as the age of 2.  Each year they put in the effort sometimes more than others, but you can’t betray them, you must continue to support them in sickness and in health, reciting the vows of marriage to the players who give it their all!

Take me out to the Ball Game and let me root for the home team, “if they don’t win it’s a shame!” But remember, no one wins it all, all the time.  Let us not judge but enjoy the spirit of the season with this group of talented players and staff who began in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1894.

First, there was a team called the Cleveland Spiders playing from 1887 to 1889 at League Park, disbanding in 1889.

The Grand Rapids Rustlers became the Cleveland Lake Shores, and in 1901 they were known as the Bluebirds.

In 1902 another name changes occurred, and they were known as the Naps named by a newspaper write-in contest.

However in 1915, the team was renamed to the Cleveland Indians, The nickname “Indians” may reference the  Cleveland Spiders baseball club during the time when Louis Sockalexis, a Native American, had played in Cleveland (1897–99).

As history goes the Indians have been good, great, and not so good!  However, they are our team, and this is our hometown, isn’t it time we treated them with respect?

Please join me as the baseball season slowly comes to an end and support the men and women who are part of the Cleveland Indians organization.  It takes a village, and the town the Dolan’s have built is one that I am proud to call my own!

18 YEARS – What Have We Done To Change?

Kenny Curcio is releasing this song tomorrow for 9/11.  I had the honor to interview this talented individual who believes in democracy, peace, humanity, and the awareness for acceptance.  Our first responders put their lives in danger every day to protect us, and yet many of us do not provide them with the support they need.

Let us stop the violence!

Let us stop the evil speech, the words that hurt and cause life-long damage!

Let us stop assuming the worst and find the positive spirit that each one of us is capable of sharing!

Let us stop pointing fingers and accusing others of our faulting thinking!

Let us stop profiling as we are unique individuals that can learn from each other creating harmony!

Let us accept the Golden Rule and Live By!


Let us stop the violence and the destruction of life!

Please take a moment to play “American Soldier”

Once you listen, I hope you will extend your hand in friendship and acceptance.


We (my husband and I) are not planners.  I used to be the ultimate planner, and it drove my husband crazy.  In his mind, I had every moment of every day scheduled. However, I was so obsessed with scheduling I never left time for error, breathing.  In the last couple of years, unless it is for work, as well as podcasting, I am a lot more liberal with my time.  I do schedule my workout time every morning as it is my ritual and my time to breath, pant, and sweat.  Sometimes even my exercise time appears to be obsessive to him.  OCD or not, I am going to the gym and at minimum working to get in shape.


Because we don’t plan, we assume if we did our day would have a hiccup and we may disappoint one or the other.  However, I am determined on this second day of September in the year 2019 that is going to change.  Rich and I have devoted our time to shift things around and at the end of the day, not only is one of us disappointed, both of us are disappointed.




When I came back this morning from the gym Rich asked what I wanted to do today.  My first reaction was let’s go to the movies – having two in mind, he responded, what else?  As I sit here writing I’m considering either drive out to Amish Country, have a nice meal, since the day is clearing here in Northeast Ohio, or the original plan a movie.  GUESS WHAT, while writing this we decided to drive out to North Canton to see, “Yesterday.”  We also just purchased tickets for “Pump and Dump” at Hilarities on Wednesday night, October 2, 2019.  Sometimes it only takes action to make the changes you want in your life.
