About Me:

My name is Kathy Dishman Richards. Katdish is a nickname given to me years ago that just sort of stuck.

Ragamuffin, creative type, suffering and delighting in raging ADD. I’m a blogger turned quasi-writer. One of my passions is encouraging and helping other writers.

I’ve been told I’m a tad sarcastic.

About this Blog:

On any given day, you may find me ranting incessantly, guiding you through the wonderful world of the Sky Mall catalog and generally being ridiculous. I write about my faith, my passions and whatever else come to mind. So basically this is a blog about nothing and everything. It’s my ADD mind laid bare for the world to see.

Also, I don’t love cats. Which is not to say I dislike cats, I just don’t like them enough to have cat-themed items given to me. Which used to be a problem. Just thought you should know on the off chance you wanted to get me something for my birthday. Which is August 5.

    With this pose you remind me a little of Dr. Evil.

    I suspect this should worry me.

    Also – your big giant head on the main page is just a TAD grainy.

    You’re welcome.

      I plan on changing the picture of my giant grainy head. I have this great idea for a new profile pic, but I’m not telling…

    Kat: Have seen you around the blog world but for some reason never found my way here until I read Billy’s blog and wanted to see what made his superhero wife cringe. great read! Thanks for sharing his post. I plan to visit your site more often. I love off the cuff writing. Keeps me laughing and sharp. 😛

      Thanks, Bill. I’ve seen you around the interwebs as well. Glad you made your way over here.

    I thought this post of yours was/is brilliant:

    ‘November 3, 2010 at 10:11 am #
    You know, my church meets in a middle school. There are many advantages of having our own space, but buying property is such a HUGE investment. Currently, we are debt free and have funds available for outreach and missions. I’m not a big believer in the “If you build it they will come” scenario for churches. I think we need to actually leave the building to reach people for Christ. Which is not to say there’s anything wrong with having a permanant meeting place. But a building is a tool, not the end game.’

    Very material minded church today – Jesus & John the baptist would certainly not fit in – they had no property.
    Bless ya – spence

    I love that you are a ragamuffin. The name of my blog is “just another ragamuffin”. Glad we have that in common. I’m a very new blogger/writer, so feel free to encourage me any time you want. 🙂
