Reading and other stuff.

One of the most intense and consuming relationships I have in my life is with my Kindle reader. I simply don’t know how I would go to sleep at night unless it is with me. I am NOT KIDDING. My parents successfully transmitted to me a love, a passion, an all-out obsession for books. So,…

Great Minds Think Greater Together!

I love this country! In my opinion the United States of America is the best place in the world to live and work! I am a firm believer in the principles laid down by our Founding Fathers and I also believe that the backbone of this magnificent country is the small business owner…the entrepreneur…the Mom…

There are “Barn” tags EVERYWHERE!!

I really don’t know if I have an unconventional habit or that I am horribly lazy! I’m sure most of you remember Minnie Pearl…..right?  She was the celebrity that wore hats with price tags dangling from them.  I have read that this was part of Minnie’s comedy act…a gentle satire on southern culture.  Well, I…

Scary Stuff at The Barn!

I love having dinner with my Son…he is the unwitting inspiration for many of my blogs.  Usually we talk about cars (he wants a new one, of course) or his favorite music, or his friends.  Last night we talked some “Barnie Talk”. We drove into Castle Rock, parked at The Barn and walked to a…

My loving Father has told me many times that he prefers my writing in this Blog to be upbeat and light.  I agree with him.  However, in light of what has happened in the last few days, I can’t ignore the “elephant in the room”.  I think it is important for me to acknowledge the…

A Barn Holiday Invitation

The Holidays are a time for friends, family and good cheer. Unfortunately, for some people, the Holiday season isn’t such a cheerful time.  The Holidays are also a stressful time.  There are the parties, cards, gifts and other traditions.  Many people don’t find themselves receiving many cards or party invitations.  Sadly, many people find themselves…
