Spring is around the corner and that means summer is coming, and so is the need for cool, refreshing appetizers that taste great and look so pretty. Ok, ok, I'm pushing the season. But I had this shrimp-pineapple appetizer when I was in Antigua last month and it was so darn delicious and simple . . .
Some people aren't going to like this because it's not simple. Sometimes, nuances in this kind of discussion are hard to see, especially when most readers gloss over them. In fact, I once lost someone I thought was a friend because they didn't get my political nuances. Of course, I thought they got . . .
The world of senior citizens --65 and over-- is a strange thing to behold, now that I'm a member of that tribe. Aging ain't for the faint of heart and one of the most puzzling things I've seen is how denial plays into it. I think it's an artifact of our Boomer generation, too; the seniors I've . . .
