    Getting old, as Bette Davis famously said, is not for sissies. And developing a terminal illness, as Davis later learned, is no picnic either. Yet while most of us fear sickness, aging and the end of life, hospice volunteer Michael Curtis finds solace and purpose — pleasure, even...

    September 18, 2008 | 3:59 am

    I learned a lot about my husband when we went on our first date at CityWalk. While sitting at Howl at the Moon, he with his Smirnoff Ice, me with my Appletini, we made a list. It wasn’t a list about our hopes and dreams, about our future plans or even about questions we had for...

    November 16, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Some women would argue that your expectations should go down the longer you are single. I say a deal breaker is a deal breaker, and the fact that you have turned 28 for several years in a row doesn't mean you should dismiss core things you want in a guy.

    Let's start with the...

    The List has taken over. If you are male, you may not be aware of this, but if you are female, you probably already have one.

    March 11, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    Invitations? Eliminate the possible problems way ahead of time. Have you asked your parents and your in-laws to give you a list? When you do, give them a number. When you ask for a list of 30 from each side, it is so much better than receiving 50 from one set of parents and 100 from...
