Supporting Each Other

Pagan Soup: Gleeks, Rock Gods, O’Donnell and Your Thoughts on Evil

Glee on Spirituality Glee has touched on spirituality before. Both Rachel and Puck are Jewish and Quinn’s parents are very conservative Christians.

Getting Stuff Done

I am blogging from bed. It’s a nice cool morning and it’s all warm and snuggly under the blankets. I do not want to get up but I have to and that’s pretty much the essence of life. Things need to get done. Promised to go somewhere with my sis, I have laundry calling my [Read More…]
