    3 weeks ago

    It’s not just the parking, darlings.

  • Bye Bye to the Bombastic

    August 6, 2015 | 9:01 am

    There’s a new phenomenon on the rise—it seems that over-talkers are overtaking our society. Auntie recently attended a soiree and two overbearing types kept stomping on the flow of conversation. No one is saying it’s not fun to jump in and add to the chatter—but loudly shutting...

  • A Short Guide to the Good Life

    By Mindy Leaf

    July 14, 2015 | 5:40 am

    This week, I've been dipping into a new/old book on how to live your life. It's called A Strategy for Daily Living by psychiatrist and author Ari Kiev, and was first published in 1973. (And because I live in a bibliophile's house, it was the original, slightly crumbling edition...

    When I was a senior in high school, I was elected to be the Drum Major for the school marching band. That’s the person who stands up in front of the band and directs it, issuing commands during shows and parades using voice, whistle, and baton movements.

    After a week of online dating I feel I must lend a helping hand to the men who are online trying to meet a nice woman.  By men of course I mean man, because in the sea of men available online, I imagine that only one in a million is actually looking for something more than a booty...

    I have some advice for President Barack Obama, who is going to be walking into the lion’s den when he speaks before the 10,000 AIPAC delegates at their national conference this Sunday.

    Here’s my advice.  Don’t backpedal.  Look the delegates in their 20,000 eyes and say,...

    On my neck there's a large, upside-down L-shaped scar. One leg of the L runs from my right shoulder blade upward to just below my right ear; the other leg takes a 90-degree turn, following the jaw line to my chin. The right side of my neck -- the inside of the L -- looks as if it's...

    When it comes to dating, even Tobey Maguire is interested in the concept of settling.

    Most people can now expect to live longer. Those extra years are a great gift. But they can be an albatross if people don't know what to do with them. A minority of people like to stay the course, whatever it is. But most people find they need to dig down to their core selves and...
