    I crawled into bed last night around 11:00.  I turned on the television and there was a commercial for a vibrator, and the story line was that there was a wedding shower and the bride to be gets a few of these vibrators as gifts.  I watched in fascination and once over the shock,... read on

    I make the world’s best brisket.  That’s not saying a lot since most Jewish women who make brisket claim they make the best. What’s interesting about my brisket is that my opinion does not factor in.  I am a vegetarian so I have no idea how it is.  If I think back a few years,... read on

    My son will be 15 in less than a month.  I cannot believe how fast the time has gone.  I am not only amazed every single day that I am able to love someone this much, but that the love grows every day.  I love him with my entire self, and equally as important, especially at this age,... read on
