    I think about my father, of blessed memory, every day.  He is in my thoughts and my prayers and I find myself quoting him and smiling at memories.  There are days when I don’t even remember that he has passed away.  Several weeks ago I actually called his cell phone and then called... read on

    Well my friends it’s been an interesting couple of days on JDate.  What stops me from pulling my hair out is the lovely notes I’ve gotten from ladies telling me to stick with it because it works.  I heard from one friend who knows a woman who got engaged this past weekend with a... read on

    It’s amazing how life can change in an instant.  It only takes a split second for things to be turned completely upside down.  No matter how hard we try to have all our ducks in a row and plan for the future, can we ever really be prepared for the shock of surprise?

    How is it possible that whenever you are feeling down on love, no matter what station you tune to on the radio, no matter what the time of day, no matter if it’s English or Spanish, you get a melancholy love song?  And furthermore, how is it possible that when you get the one song... read on
