  • The Benefits of Insomnia and a Daily View of Chocolate and Coffee

    By Ilana Angel

    I have not been sleeping.  No big deal because I’m not a great sleeper, but the last couple of days have been rough.  The first night I did not sleep, I simply wondered around my home, watched television, did some ironing and worked on some paperwork.  While productive, totally... read on

  • Friend, Foe, Forgiveness, Faith & a Man in a Box

    I know a lot of people and have many, many acquaintances.  I also have a small, really good circle of friends.  They are a blessing because my family lives far away, so they are more than just my friends, they are a support system and surrogate family to both me and my son.

    I woke up this past weekend hating my sofa.  It’s a great sofa, in great shape, and there is no reason I should hate it.  I bought it because I loved it, but for some reason I could not stand it this weekend.  I felt a need to change up my place and decided the thing that needed to... 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

    What a glorious night!  Skating With The Stars is finally over, and miracle of miracles, Bethenny did not win.  I predicted last night that she would take the crown, but alas the reality gods listened to my prayers and she came in second place.  By second place of course I mean she... read on

  • Skating With The Stars: Bethenny Fake Cries Her Way to the Finale

    By Ilana Angel

    Just when I thought Bethenny Frankel could not get more obnoxious, on what has proven to be the worst show ever put on television, she manages to outdo herself by fake crying for votes, all while we watch her lies begin to unravel, as she secures the votes of her fans.
