As the world turns is the title of my column this week, and quite appropriate for this issue, Halloween, Oct. 31.
Last week I was talking about how great of a sports weekend it was, now I am talking about how bad of a St. Louis sports extended weekend we had (includes Monday).

In their 1968 song “Revolution”, The Beatles sang “you say you want a revolution… well, you know, we all want to change the world.” Good old Thomas Jefferson is attributed to have said that “most bad government comes from too much government.”
For most of the baseball fans here in St. Louis your prayers came true as the Cardinals have reached the World Series once again. It was kind of a tossup on who would be better to play in the World Series: Boston or Detroit. I think playing Boston is a really good matchup though.

Through the years of the Dining Diva outings, we’ve learned a few things. Don’t assume when a restaurant advertises happy hour specials that you’ll get to take advantage of them. If you’re sitting at a table in the dining room and not in the bar, you’re exempt. I don’t really understand this concept, but it’s happened to us more than a couple times.

A few weeks ago, I talked to my parents. Well, not in the real sense, since they are both ‘crossed over’ for some years now. But I visited their gravesite at the Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. And there, amidst the thousands of perfectly symmetrical monuments, I thanked them. Thanked them for my life. For being a good mom and dad. For passing on their strong faith.
I’ve said it before, when we experienced great local sports weekends, but nothing could top this past one. What a great weekend it was last Saturday and Sunday as all of our local professional sports teams and our state college team were victorious.« Previous Entries Next Entries »
