    For the past 20 years I have spent my birthday with my son having dinner, occasionally including a friend or two, or the man I was in a relationship with. I literally cannot remember my last birthday party. I am not one to make a big deal out of my birthday, but turning 50 was...

  • Tasty tequila cocktails to try

    February 2, 2016 | 2:20 pm

    Salt, shoot, suck. Then grit your teeth and shake your head to clear out the fire burning in your throat. This tequila ritual is familiar to many college students, but if you haven't sipped the agave-based spirit since you were younger, it's time for a refresher course.

    As I approach my 50th birthday I am examining my life and making a conscious decision to take more risks than I ever have before. By more risks of course I mean taking just one risk would be more than usual for me. I like to think of myself as brave when it comes to raising my son,...

    I’m not one to make a big deal about my birthday. It’s just another day and while I look forward to getting a card from my son, the truth is he is really good with cards and gives them to me at random times without requiring a special occasion. I do love a cocktail with my...

    I am officially exhausted.  I actually fell asleep today at the dentist.  I was sitting in the waiting room, wondering why my dentist does not serve cocktails, and I dozed off.  The hygienist who was going to clean my teeth had to give me a shake because I was out.  I have been this...
