    #FEDUPMovie: It's time to rethink scary movies. It's time to get real about food.
    Sugar's got a hold on me, you, us... Aren't we FED UP yet?

    I AM ADDICTED TO SUGAR

    Sugar is an epidemic and it is killing us. Not slowly, but fast. From obesity (and childhood obesity), to diabetes to mood swings, Sugar is on a war path. And the food industry is in...

    My husband, Benni, loves art – especially modern painting.  I can’t say I share his passion.  We were just in New York where we went to a huge De Kooning retrospective.  Benni thrilled at each and every canvas while I sat on a bench and people-watched.

    I do, however, love...

    A short while ago I was at a meet-the-authors brunch at American Jewish University, talking about my Bargain Junkie book.  At one point I said to the audience, “I want to hear your own greatest bargain stories.  The best one I ever heard was about a woman who got a free kidney on...

    HITTING THE STACKS
    Libraries are the biggest cultural bargain around.  Not only do they offer books, magazines, CDs, videos, and internet access, but they have lectures, exhibits, classes, and special events for kids.

    Hundreds rallied in Mitzpe Hila on Thursday, to demand the government do more to secure the release of captive Israel Defense Forces soldier Gilad Shalit.

    "This is heaven," I announced Sunday afternoon.

    Cruising the city (the absence of traffic in itself celestial), sunroof open, exposed shoulders browning. Wild poppies glistening, swaying in a soft breeze scented by orange blossoms; singing along to KOST 103.5 FM:
