The first time I’d heard the band Ratt was sometime during 7th grade. “Round and Round” was a catchy song, but being a 12-year-old that wasn’t allowed to purchase rock cassette tapes at the time, I didn’t mind that it was overplayed on the radio. I listened to Ratt throughout my junior high and high … Continue reading Ratt & Roll – Stephen Pearcy’s Memoir – Book Review
I just read a memoir by Stephen Pearcy (of Ratt) and relived the moments of my lusting over long-haired band guys. I'd written about some of them in both of my books, which referred to me around age 13 and throughout high school. I was known to be a "rocker" when I was a teenager … Continue reading My Days of Heavy Metal & Being a Rocker Chick

After not logging in for about two weeks, I had 12 spammers … Continue reading What is the Point of Spamming a WordPress Page?

I discovered through an allergist that I was allergic to grass, ragweed, pine, and milk. The pine allergy would definitely explain much of the misery I felt in 1997-1999 because I lived … Continue reading Beating Fibromyalgia and CFS, Allergy Tests – Part 2
