So girlfriend and were chatting yesterday. She's around my age and had a beautiful mother whose genes she inherited. Although she doesn't think so. And so she's had a few little cosmetic tweaks, even though her significant other thinks she's a goddess. No surprise. Because every girlfriend with a . . .
Can you guess what these students are doing? If you're in the Baby Boomer generation, you know. They're inhaling the aroma of a fresh ditto handout. Nothing smelled as good or was as evocative of school days as that odor. It's been decades since I've smelled it, but it remains in my memory bank . . .
How many times have i started to do something and stopped in my tracks because I couldn't remember what I'd set out to do? Sometimes I can catch up with my train of thought at another station, but other times it's gone for good. The other day I made a marinade that I intended to cool in the refrig . . .
CurlyGirl Designs does it again! I texted a Florida friend last month, asking "Hey, wanna snort tomorrow afternoon?" She knew I didn't mean cocaine. I meant snort with laughter, something we do well together and not often enough since I moved to California. Of course she was up for it (or, today, . . .
Not too long ago I had an online dialogue with a friend about the benefits of traveling light. That is, going through life without luggage--both figuratively and literally. He--Carey Giudici-- had such a great take on it that I asked if he'd write a guest post. Carey's an unusual guy--I met him on . . .

And serious business it is. Raising kids, moving up the career ladder, buying and . . .
Health and Beauty Deals to Combat the Cruel Effects of Time: that's the headline. This is NOT the way to get REAL women to buy. The "cruel effects of time?" By that, do you mean the effects of the many smiles and belly laughs in a life well-lived? Do you mean the changes in women's bodies that . . .
How's aging working for you? If you're like me and hubby, your lower back goes out more than you ever imagined it would. Yesterday, it was his back. And our neighbor's. The day before it was mine. For me, it's always the left lower back. My trainer helps me get rid of it, but I'm not always able . . .
I was feeling puckish yesterday, up for some fun, ready for a good time, so with time on my hands I tossed a tiny bottle of pistachio-colored nail polish in my bag and went off to see Mai, my manicurist. Mai and I hang out maybe once every month or two, whenever I feel the need for a professional . . .
Last semester I sat in on a student project presentation. They identified their target market as "old peeps in retirement homes." Looking at their shiny, 20-year old faces, I just had to ask. "How do you define old peeps? What ages in retirement homes?" With all the certainty of youth, one of . . .
