Tough Stains

There have been times in my life when I’ve been told things I didn’t want to hear. We all  have a tendency to go along in our own world, believing what we tell ourselves because it’s easier.  If things are not as we imagine them then we’ll have to change, do something about it.  That…

I’ve always found the phrase “May contain nuts or nut pieces” odd, especially when it is found on foods that have nothing to do with nuts. Don’t the makers of these products know whether there are nuts? What do you mean it “may contain”? After seeing this several times and pondering the possibilities I’ve determined…

Wool Gabardine

I went to Starbuck’s this morning as I always do (my life has a bit of a Groundhog Day feel to it sometimes). As I approached the counter there before me stood one of my favorite people. A woman, nicely dressed, great shoes and obviously very, very important. She was so important that it was…

I have never been an organized religion type of person. Whatever that means. The Church and the idea that someone else gets me…

Mickey Mouse Tortillas? I attended Information Night at my children’s school this week. As with years before, I was seated amongst the usual career moms, stay at home moms, dads in their standard issue hawaiian shirt. My children go to a private school, and one of the hot issues is always the Student Lunch Program.…

Reality TV. Isn’t that an oxymoron? I remember watching television as a child, or even as a teenager (I do not watch TV now. I have three children…need I say more.) to get away, or be taken somewhere. Love Boat, Fantasy Island, even All in the Family. As the years went on, Dallas, Falcon Crest,…
