    I like my boobs.  I actually like boobs in general.  I think they are pretty and important and I am rather proud of mine.  Big or small, boobs are a beautiful part of a woman’s body and I take care of mine.  I get them checked out regularly both myself, and by a doctor.  I enjoy... read on

    I wrote an article this week about random people telling me they love Jews. It bothers me when people tell me they love all Jewish people.  I certainly don’t love all Jewish people.  Nobody can love an entire group of anything, whether it is people, places or things, and it’s... read on

    I spent Monday running errands, and travelled through Sherman Oaks, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood and Los Feliz.  I saw a total of seven sports cars, all driven by men, who if given the opportunity, I would punch in the face.  Five of them were very attractive, two of them I never... read on
