Mama’s No Danielle Steel

By Mihal Levy

February 25, 2010 | 12:00 pm

Sometimes when I write - I wonder if anyone is actually reading.  “Reading what?,” you ask.  My point exactly. 

It is like therapy -  a one-sided relationship. (Although many therapists... read on

  • So You Think You Can Design; “Oscars Designer Challenge 2010”

    By Mihal Levy

    February 24, 2010 | 11:29 am

    The Oscars aren’t really about the films, actors, directors, producers and so on.  Right?  Well, maybe a little.  It’s all about the red carpet style.

    So, who wouldn’t want the chance to design a dress for the Oscars?  (Well me, for one, because I woudn’t know what I was doing, but... read on

  • Mama, Take A Hike

    By Mihal Levy

    February 23, 2010 | 11:30 am

    When it comes to nature, I pretty much have a fear of it - like Monk (the Obsessive-Compulsive Detective that was played by Tony Shalhoub).  I am sure there is a name for that sort of thing.  Ok, so maybe I exaggerate a little.  It is not so much a fear of nature, as it is the fear... read on

  • The Great Lunch Divide

    By Mihal Levy

    February 19, 2010 | 2:07 pm

    In the midst of a great picnic at the park with my son the other day, a feeling of gloom engulfed me.  I realized my son is doomed…if his future relies on my lunch-packing skills (and we all know that it does).

    Staring down at the browning apple slices in a Ziploc bag in his little... read on

  • A Groupie After All

    By Mihal Levy

    February 15, 2010 | 12:28 pm

    I never thought I would do it.  Join a group?  Not me.  Even a group such as Holistic Moms that goes against the grain (no pun intended) is still a group.  And groups are, well, just not my thing.  Once someone joins a group, there is no end in sight.  Then there are twelve steps,... read on

  • Valentine’s Day Controversy

    By Mihal Levy

    February 12, 2010 | 3:00 pm

    It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and you know what that means.  Overpriced chocolates and flowers?  Yes.  But even more so – yet another Jewish dilemma.  (Another one?  Of course.)  To celebrate or not to celebrate…that is the question.  And I have the answer…well sort of.

  • The Blinded Voyeur

    By Mihal Levy

    February 8, 2010 | 4:52 pm

    I can’t believe my next door neighbor finally put up blinds.  What was she thinking?  Who would look in anyway at her spotless counter tops, orchid centerpiece-clad dining room table and awesome bright green mixer that I’m sure actually holds eight cups of flour when making challah... read on

  • Mom’s Apology

    By Mihal Levy

    February 4, 2010 | 3:12 pm

    I feel that I owe my son an apology for yesterday.  Although I didn’t do anything major as far as things go that merit apologies, I still feel I owe him one.  (Yes, I will read it to him.)  So here it goes: 

    First off, I apologize for getting up after you, whipping up a quick... read on
