i’m baaaaaack!

Oh my!  Where does the time go?  I wake up every day with a list of 'must-do's' (one of which is post a blog update), and you see where that's gotten me.  So what have I been doing?  Where has the time gone? Richie Coldcuts is quick to point out to people that "she's retired". ... Continue Reading →

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...

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...

i’ve been using you

It's true.  Full transparency, full disclosure.  I've always liked writing.  And when I (was) recently retired(!), I thought first of writing.  But it's one thing to share your own crazy thoughts with folks on a blog, and another entirely to write for $$$.  Dollars, greenbacks, dinero.  Yep, that stuff that helps pay the mortgage and...

cruising to the 4th

Richie Coldcuts and I decided to extend the 4th of July holiday by taking some vacation days and boating down to Longboat Key to meet up with other boating friends.  Sounded like a plan, right?  Well, getting there was a little more difficult than we had envisioned. Original plan:  Richie and guy friends Matt and... Continue Reading →

ww – how. does. this. happen?

Hi Ladies -- Happy Women's Wednesday!  If you're like me, your wardrobe, your accessories, your makeup and your shoes probably reflect every price point in the spectrum.  Meaning, I've bought shoes at Target and on 5th Avenue in NYC.  I've bought make-up at Walmart and at the make-up counter at Nieman's.  Same for earrings.  So...

jackpot !!!

Are you a 'tidy' person?  Do you have fewer than two items on each and every surface in your home?  What about your office?  I know people who are total slobs at work, and their homes are immaculate (and vice versa).  Me?  I yearn to be tidy.  I'm done with the clutter that Richie Coldcuts...
