I have a theory and I'd like to hear what you think about it. I believe that by practicing good manners we become better people.
I know it sounds boring, but c'mon, let's think about this for a moment.
Every so often I feel compelled to let loose with… Read full post »
There was a death in my family.
She was my mother's sister. Where there were four girls once upon a time, now there is only one. I'm not at all sure my mother will ever recover. She immediately fell apart into a million sobbing pieces.
My dear Auntie was 79… Read full post »
I'm afraid for the young women in my life. I'm not so much afraid for myself, oddly enough, but I fear for those who have to face being a young woman today. My fear exists on many levels. It's not just political, it's societal. Will my nieces have… Read full post »
My father turned 79 years old this week. As usual, we celebrated his birthday quietly. We went to a nice restaurant, no cake, no singing. He hates that. He hates the fuss. God forbid a slew of wait staff gather around the table singing some God-awful… Read full post »

I'm just not. It's just that simple. I can't think of a better way to phrase it.
Absolutely not mathematically inclined, good with numbers, or otherwise fluent in… Read full post »
Bravo Mayor Bloomberg!
Well done, well said and well timed! Let's all toss a little bit in the hat and show the Komen Foundation that what they have done is horribly, horribly wrong.
Bit by bit as more information trickles out, it seems that the Komen Foundation is trying… Read full post »
They say that women become their mothers. I disagree. I'm fairly certain that I am becoming my father.
There are days when my road rage spirals out of control. I'm pretty sure we all have days like that, but I'm concerned. I'm having them more and more often. I'm… Read full post »
There, I said it. I said it out loud. I said it out loud in what my mother would describe as “mixed company”. At least that is the assumption I'm making. I mean, you can't all be Christmas-observing Christians can you?… Read full post »
I’m off on Wednesdays and there’s nothing like it. It’s the perfect work-week; two on, one off, two on and two off. Bliss I tell you, bliss
Last Wednesday I didn’t have many errands to run so I stayed home and did a few chores. Between folding loads o… Read full post »
I saw something interesting the other day while visiting a pharmacy. There was a sign on the counter which read “We will be happy to assist you after you have finished your cell phone call.” It was something I had never run across before and I was intrigued. I thou… Read full post »
The first time I heard the term “namaste” I repeated it back to the person addressing me because I had seen the other students in my yoga class do the same. I exchanged smiles and nodded my head with my hands brought together as if in prayer. It looked cool. It/… Read full post »
