spam mail – oh my!

Life is full of spam.  On your cell phone, on the sidelines of every email, in Facebook and more.  And I thought I knew spam.  Nope.  Here's what happened.  Richie Coldcuts and I were lucky to be included in a big Thanksgiving gathering of close friends in the 'burg.  Our contribution was to be dessert. ...

the big run

Richie Coldcuts and I returned to his promise land (NYC) last weekend for the NYC marathon.  His son was running, neither of us had ever attended before, and we were overdue (in Richie's eyes) for a trip to 'the city'.  We were excited to cheer Matt on and officially spectate the big event.  For the...

is it really November ?!?!

OMG.  Say it ain't so!  Where in the h*ll did the year go?  I can't believe Halloween is over.  The grocery stores are fully stocked with cranberry sauce, stuffing, green beans and those canned fried onions to go on the top!  And while you're shopping for your Thanksgiving feast, you can listen to Christmas carols...

drum roll please!

I did it!  I've 'discovered' myself!  Whoa, whoa, don't be rolling your eyes like "it's about time"!  It's never too late.  And since leaving full-time work, I've been wondering about my next chapter.  I've shared some of the things I looked into -- primarily website (SEO) copywriting and blogging.  But after conferring with my great...

Richie Coldcuts is quick to point out to people that "she's retired". ... Continue Reading →

hell hath no fury . . .

‘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...
