Far Northern California is one of the most beautiful places in the country. Mountains, trees, rivers, ocean, fog--it's all there. And far enough from urban areas to allow people to live off the grid if they want. And they want. I've lived in northern California a long time but have only visited . . .
After hearing so much buzz about The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, we logged into Amazon Prime and proceeded to binge on both seasons. Visually, it's a feast of color and style. The 1950s fashions are the best part for me, even though the performances are top-notch and the writing is clever and very . . .
It's almost impossible to think of a day when Facebook won't be part of our lives. And yet, like everything else, it probably has a life span and eventually will reach an end, a day when it's no longer current, or interesting or useful. Or it's too abusive.

NOT A SPONSORED POST! Drugstore bargains get a bad name. I don't see any reason to spend a zillion dollars on branded body or face washes or even sunscreen.

Nothing has aggravated my writerly sensibilities as much as a recent review in the Atlantic that bashed writer Joyce Maynard for being the "Queen of Oversharing." Except maybe those critics who bashed her for writing about JD Salinger, a man who had a totally inappropriate relationship with her when . . .
I don't know about you, but when I've got some down time, waiting in line for example, or even at home, I'll grab my phone for a quick diversion, like Words with Friends or Solitaire. So do millions of other women our age. Mobile gaming isn't just for young people --we're all doing it. In fact, it . . .
If you're around my age you remember those "Calgon, take me away!" TV ads. Yes, that is a live link. But how often have I wished something could transport me away from the horrors of the world today? You, too, probably. So here's a beach reading list full of excellent distractions to take you away . . .
My husband is a logical guy. He started out to be an engineer but he ended up a lawyer in one of the driest areas ever: bank regulatory law. I mean, Zzzzzz. To me.
