Two Years Eh? Let’s Do a Movie Review

February 12th, 2015

So it’s been nearly 2 years since I posted anything here at QueenAnntics.  That’s amazing actually.  I think I will change that. Let’s do a movie review.  In the past month, I have seen 3 movies:  Unbroken, American Sniper, and The Imitation Game.   Of the 3, The Imitation Game was by far the best. […]

3 Reasons Why You Won’t Fall Off the Face of the Earth

February 19th, 2013

Now that I have your attention. Has anyone else noticed that the typical blogging model has defaulted into compiling a list of things: 3 you must know or 5 things you must do?  It seems that so many posts use this format to lure readers.  I have used it myself although I try not to overdo it.  However, […]

Stay Curious My Friend

July 25th, 2012

Once upon a time, in 1976, my father wrote me a letter because I wasn’t taking school too seriously.   In the letter he stated, “But there is a second and maybe more important reason for studying hard. The more you study and learn, the more your mind will expand to look at life a little differently […]

Molly’s Rude Awakening: An Unexpected Delight in an Unlikely Place

May 16th, 2012

Molly’s Rude Awakening is an unexpected delight in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. For over 25 years, I have traveled Interstate 94 between my home in Minnesota and points east, especially 50 or more trips to Detroit where I grew up.   I thought I knew every gas station, restaurant, coffee shop, and convenience store along […]

What Tames Fear?

April 18th, 2012

On my 45th birthday, I vowed, after jumping off of a 32 foot cliff in Jamaica, that I would skydive next. You can check out my  pre-skydiving blog to confirm that I really was a overcoming a long-standing fear […]

Chickens Can’t Fly But Can They Jump?

February 15th, 2012

True confession. I get dizzy standing on a tall chair. For most of my life, I have had a fear of heights. High dives? If I wasn’t showing off, I wasn’t jumping. My heart still races when I look over the top of an open parking structure. I have steadfastly refused to take a hot […]

Go Green! Go White!

October 15th, 2011

To the honorable Gregory Huszczo, you have won the bet, Green One.  As an honorable Wolverine, I am a woman of my word.  So it is that I wear this State hat and hold the Spartan sweatshirt close to my heart. What’s more, I consider myself fortunate that my best friend is married to a Spartan, […]

Who’ll Stop the Rain?

September 20th, 2011

Every time I hear the song Who’ll Stop the Rain by Credence Clearwater Revival, I think of Dennis. I knew him many years ago in Arizona.  I had taken my first job as a speech pathologist and he was one of my first clients. Our first appointment was in the late afternoon when almost everyone […]
