Powerlessness [Nov 13, 2009]

Then do something about it [Nov 15, 2009]

"The fourth step is the start of the housecleaning. Some of us (Moi?) had some serious work to do, clearing a lot of debris out. The easiest way to do this is take it in stages."
But Mom - He started it!!! [Nov 20, 2009]

"Those last three steps, 10 - continue to take personal inventory, 11 - seek out a better relationship with God and 12 - practice these principles as part of my life and bring the message of sobriety to others.

Love is a Choice [Nov 29, 2009]

Where'd that bus come from? [Nov 30, 2009]
