SPOILER ALERT! This post discusses the second last episode, which hints at the season ending. It's coming. The second-to-last-season of Downton Abbey will end this weekend and so will the series next year. The Grantham House family--and I include the servants in that--have grown on me over the . . .
The 2015 Oscars. Where do I begin? Oh wait. First I have to awaken from the coma this year's Oscar telecast put me in. OK, coffee's made and first few sips downed. Who WERE some of these presenters? I loved the days of real Hollywood stars. We all knew their names. And they had easy names. . . .
James Lipton is almost 90 now (can you believe it?), but he's still hosting Inside the Actors Studio interviews and I still love the questions he asks of the actors he interviews. I consider them great life questions, actually. So, taking the idea from a fellow blogger, I thought I'd take a stab at . . .
"There's a guy dressed like an alien playing guitar with a stuffed goat over on the stairs at Union Square, and there's a Rottweiler at the bottom of the stairs who just doesn't know what to make of him," my husband laughed, as we walked around San Francisco the other day.

Well, Lady Mary's gone and done it. She left Downton Abbey for a "sketching vacation" with a girlfriend, but instead shacked up with Lord Gillingham in Liverpool, a trial run, if you will, prior to agreeing to the bigger step of marriage. He's a fox, isn't he? And much smitten with Lady Mary, who I . . .
Let's just jump in, because the next Celebrity Apprentice is airing and I haven't recapped last week. Worked on a team? I am certain that many of these lessons will bring back memories, and not the kind you want to paste in your scrapbook. Does anyone do that anymore? Guess not, it's all online. . . .
If you don't know Keith Haring by name you certainly do by his art, which is original and vibrant and super-recognizable. He was an amazing artist who died in 1990 too young--31--from AIDS.

Two weeks have passed and another four hours of, you guessed it, Celebrity Apprentice 2015. More business lessons to be learned—or reinforced. You may remember my last recap, found HERE. We're another four episodes past that, so today, let’s talk both two-episode weeks at once, since the lessons . . .
The new season of Celebrity Apprentice has begun and -----I’m fairly certain that among my peers, my love of the TV show is a minority view. Say what you will about Mr. Trump, and I’ll say more about him later, but the show is genius, so on target that when I taught Teamwork at the college level, . . .
