In Memoriam

JUST TO LET YOU KNOW… It’s with a very heavy heart that this afternoon I said goodbye to a dear friend. Though I knew we’ve been on borrowed time for quite a while now, it’s never easy to let go. My sidekick defied the odds longer than anyone could have ever expected and for that … Continued

One Down… A LOT More To Go!

It’s Friday!  Major congrats to all the folks who sent their kids back to school this week. How’d your transition go?  I hope it was a little smoother than mine. Ready Or Not… Here They Come Initially, we started out great Monday morning.  Kids up, dressed, breakfast ingested (which never happened last year) and out … Continued

INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO: QUESTION # 7

I love watching the show, Inside The Actors Studio.   One reason is because I learn about the backgrounds of critically acclaimed mega stars.   Throughout the entire duration of each interview, these actors allow me to get to know them as real people, not as the character(s) they play on the big screen, or … Continued

Imma "Moony" Bitch

Love Me or Leave Me I have no problem admitting that being bitchy is part of my unpolished personality.  Sometimes I just can’t help myself.  You can take it or leave it, but my bitchiness comes with the territory. Other than reading my horoscope from time to time, Astrology isn’t really my thing.  However, according … Continued

Every year around this time, I start to panic.  I panic because according to the calendar I’m about six weeks shy of officially turning older.  Internally, I start to take inventory of what I’ve personally accomplished and what I haven’t.  I begin to assess if I was productive enough over the last twelve months or … Continued

Why Didn't I Think Of That?

I’d be a millionaire if I had a dollar for every time I said, “Why Didn’t I Think Of That?”  You know  what sucks though?  Coming up with an idea isn’t really the hard part.  Over the years I’ve had tonzzz of brainstorming sessions in my personal think tank where I’ve invented dozens of gadgets … Continued

"THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID"… 34 Years Ago!

Saturday night I went out for dinner with a bunch of old friends.  After two scotches, a glass of Prosecco and a Corona, I announced that having just had my second and final phone call of the summer with my sleep-away camp kid, and hearing him say, “Ma you can ask me one more question, … Continued

Move Over Bacon… There's Something MEANER

Nope, I’m not whipping up Sizzlean.  It’s more like SIZZLE-MEAN. For the better part of the last two days I’ve been home filling my dance card with the highly acclaimed American political drama series, House of Cards. Forget about six degrees of Kevin Bacon.  My head is spinning three hundred sixty degrees from the whiplash … Continued
