    Although Hanukkah is not the holiday of questions, I still have one.  I know why this night is different than all other nights.  But, if a little bit of oil went a long way, oh so long ago…why must I purchase vats of oil for a deep fried supper tonight?  I’m just asking.  Shouldn’t a... read on

  • All Packed and Ready To…Stay

    On the road once again, my husband, not me.  It seems that I am always the one driving everyone else to the Flyaway, LAX and back, but never really going anywhere.  I even help pack the suitcases that are not my own.  Once again, I’m here…at home.

    They say “home is where the heart... read on

  • Exes, Pervs. & Estranged Relatives, Oh My!

    Where can you find your exes, pervs. and estranged family members in one place?  Facebook.

    Black Friday shoppers, I salute you.  No, really, I do.  While you were out getting those great deals at midnight or three o’clock in the morning, I was tossing and turning in bed thinking about you, all of you.  Probably because of the sugar high I was on from the pies, cranberry... read on

    Thanksgiving is here, but are you prepared?  And I don’t mean, “have you prepared the cranberry sauce in advance and hauled home the fifty pound turkey?” 
 But are you really ready?  To reconnect with family members you have not seen since last Thanksgiving?  To give Aunt... read on

  • ‘Tis The Season

    November 20, 2009 | 2:30 pm

    Tinsel is hung earlier and earlier each year.  Now, even before Thanksgiving we prepare for “the holidays.”  Eventually, people will be stringing lights and frying up latkes in June to prepare.  But, not everyone is frolicking in the holiday fun or mass conspiracy to... read on
