hell hath no fury . . .

... like mother nature.  I would guess that anyone in Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South and North Carolina, and the Caribbean would agree.  Between Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the weather in and around the Atlantic Ocean has been especially ravaging in the last four weeks.  Sadly, there are TONS of people who've lost their...

‘you dumb bunny’! – part 2

If you read my post from July 7th this will make more sense.  But, as background: the title above was my mother's deepest insult to us as kids.  And this time, I'm going to have to drag my sister Jane into this.  (In fact, I think she was the dumber bunny!)  My sister and I were both...

is TV cool again?

I ask because there was definitely a time not so long ago that nobody admitted to watching TV.  But having spent nearly my entire career at The Nielsen Company, I knew that wasn't true.  Because we processed the TV ratings.  And plenty of people were watching TV.  Of course, given current technology, I shouldn't call...

un-scheduled

My life is a blur.  I feel like time is literally FLYING.  And that I never have enough time in a day.  Ever feel like that?  How is that possible when I'm no longer employed fulltime?  I admit, when I was younger, I occasionally ran into folks who had retired from the large company where...

ww – i feel pretty (oh so pretty!)

Not!  My nails are a disgrace.  I've been there before, but I may be setting a new low.  Like nearly every woman I know, I get my nails done.   And my hair.  And my lashes.  'Done' can mean polish, gel, acrylic, glitter, jewel encrusted, etc, but it always means someone is doing my nails,...

ww – oops, it’s thursday!

I missed Women's Wednesday, but this Thursday post is meant for all my sisters out there: Yippee, skippee, I have a hair appointment today!  This is always a favorite day.  I go from feeling frumpy, dumpy, pale and plain to glitzy, stylish, burnished and bright!  A big metamorphosis within a few hours.  Do you all...

diamonds are a girl’s best friend

Tomorrow, Richie Coldcuts and I are going on a little weekend getaway to celebrate nine years of wedded bliss.  That in itself is a little misleading because we've been together far longer.  Since we each have been divorced and had kids from our previous marriages we waited quite a while to tie the knot.  Waited...

too much tech?

Do I sound old?  Old fashioned?  A dinosaur?  I don't mean to.  I've worked in the technology sector my entire life.  And I have SUCH an appreciation for the Internet, Google, smart cars, smart appliances, IOT, you name it.  But, and this is a big but - - - 'social' media can sometimes make people...
