Hi, I'm Debbie from a small town in the middle of the beautiful state of West Virginia. I am married to my soul mate, Bill, we have 4 children and 4 terrific grandchildren, an 6 dogs. We are a close-knit old-fashioned family, just like the Waltons. Family is very important to us and we have the traditional family Sunday dinners, holiday dinners and family cookouts. I enjoy our life as it is so much more fulfilling and supportive for all of us. Traditional values and morals and Christian beliefs are the foundation of our family, as it has been for many generations.

I enjoy reading, writing, fishing and camping and since my first ever trip to the ocean and the beach this summer, I am hooked on Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! I would truly love to move there and leave my cold winters to those who enjoy the snow and freezing temperatures here in West Virginia. I long to explore all the historic sites in the South, which is a passion of mine, and my favorite book is 'Gone With The Wind' and I watch the movie every year without fail!

I am excited about Street Articles and I plan on writing about a subject that I am very passionate about and that is weight loss and doing it in a very healthy manner with exercise, proper nutrition and products that are natural to help you along the way.

If you like my articles, or not, please give me your feedback. I welcome your opinions on the subjects and I know we can all learn everyday, so I invite you to contact me with your insights or suggestions.

Domestic Violence Murder Triggers Gun Control Rant
I realize that the murder-suicide of an NFL player and his on again/off again girlfriend was tragic, as was the fact that the murderer didn't give a single thought to the infant child he shared with this woman. Outrage, yes. Domestic violence is getting to be more than an epidemic…
