It's Tuesday, Welcome Back To The Cocktail Party!

Welcome to Willoughby's Blog Style Cocktail Party. I hope you will find some new blogs to follow and expand your circle of blog friends. I know you're all anxious to mingle, so I'll get right to it.

I'd like to introduce Raoulysgirl from Who Has The Thyme?. I know you'll enjoy her blog as much as I do.

About Me


I'm a mommy first...wife second. Besides that, I am opinionated. Mine is not always the "popular" opinion, either. You are welcome to engage me in debate, but will most likely NOT change my mind.



Yeah...better just stick to my usual style, huh? Sorry. I was trying to be proper since I'm a guest on my dear friend Willoughby's blog.

Comes across as being fake, does it? Hmm...well, I guess we'll just have to start over.


What do Obie-wannabe (that would be President Obama...for those who are new to my musings) and John Edwards have in common?

They've both decided that the "pull-out" method is probably NOT a good idea.

I know...I know. It was a bad joke. Shame on me. I shouldn't have gone there.

But I did. And here's the thing...

I always do! I can't help myself. My opinions tend to be strong and, more often than not, sarcastic.

What do I opine about, you ask?

Well...everything. If it's on the news, I read it. If it lights a fire in me, you'll hear what I think about it.

Mine is not always the "popular" opinion. I am a firm believer in life...and death. Swift justice...and "enhanced interrogation techniques." I will warn you, though, if things start to get sticky. Then, I'll make a joke of it!

I'm not always so serious. I like to poke fun at the kiddie movies that seem to be on a continuous loop at my house...even my FAVORITE of all time (I even managed to make it politically themed!).

Sometimes, I let you have a small peek at my family life.

Occasionally, I will give out unsolicited advice.

I will warn you, however...regardless of the post, it always comes with an unwritten disclaimer. "Read at your own risk."

I welcome any and all comments...even if they differ from my point of view. I enjoy debate and welcome it on my blog. Just don't expect to change my mind!

I have been absent lately, as I had some family matters to attend to. However, I am back now with both guns blazing!!!

Please stop by my little corner of the world and see what you think. Don't be afraid to voice your opinions.

Oh, and if you do feel like hanging around, please let me know that Willoughby sent you!!!

Thank you Raoulysgirl for being a guest on my blog.

The cocktail party will continue on Sunday with a new guest blogger. It's not too late to RSVP if you haven't already. You can send your submission to me at thisstopwilloughby@yahoo.com. (If you're not already a follower, you must become one to be a guest blogger at the cocktail party.) I would appreciate it if you could send me your post in html format. If you are I would appreciate it if you could send me your post in html format. If you are submitting a new post, create it on Blogger as you would any post. Save, but don't publish it. From there you can click "edit html" and copy and paste your blog into the body of an email. If you are submitting a previously published post, go into "edit" and follow the same instructions. This makes it much easier for me to display your blog post the way you have written it and saves me a lot of editing.If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
