    My mom is in town. She is super cute and I get a kick out of her.  She’s not much for going out.  She likes to stay home, cooking and knitting.  It’s funny because those are Grandmotherly things to do and I guess I now view her as the Grandma to my child, as much as my own... read on

    I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I certainly did.  I went with my son to one of his best friend’s home.  It was a magnificent meal, with wonderful people, and I could not have enjoyed myself more.  It was really terrific and I feel blessed my son and I were included in the... read on

    I will dedicate a full blog to DWTS after they crown a champion but I could not wait a full day to say that while Jennifer Grey is the most talented celebrity, last night her skating was not as impressive as her pandering.  Her dancing to a song from Dirty Dancing was a cheap ploy... read on

    Today would have been my father’s 72nd birthday.  I loved him very much.  He was a wonderful man and a great father.  My son adored him and a day does not pass that I don’t think about him and wish he was alive.  I get my sense of humor from my dad.  I also get my fair skin,... read on

    I received a lovely email from a reader named Howard.  He enjoys my blog, lives in Los Angeles, and decided to reach out and see if I would like to have dinner.  He was funny and quite charming, even forwarded me a picture and his full name so I could Google him and make sure he was... read on
