    By Ilana Angel

    September 4, 2011 | 10:37 am

    I had a date this week with a very interesting man.  He was 45, never married, and Jewish. During our emails, and phone conversations, I found him to be charming and funny.  His laugh was very sweet and I felt comfortable with him.  We spoke a couple of times and made a date for...

  • 78 Million Reasons to Love the People of Japan

    August 19, 2011 | 12:30 am

    In a world of chaos, it is hard to look at the recent news stories in London, Israel, or the Sudan, and not feel sadness for humanity.  Human beings are more alike than we are different, and that we are able to so easily hate and hurt each other weighs heavy on my heart.  My life is...

  • The Bachelor Pad:  Blake is the New Bentley & Ames is Prince Charming

    August 16, 2011 | 8:55 am

    This show is fabulous.  There is no point in denying it, or trying to lie about it.  It is really very entertaining, the people on it are insane, and it would not be nearly as good without Jake and Vienna.  One might assume the people on this show are watching themselves at home and...

    By Julia Bendis

    August 2, 2011 | 2:37 pm

    Apparently, The Tooth Fairy is going through tough economic times too.  10% of children did not receive any money this year, and 7% received less than a dollar.  Are you kidding me?  First of all, I don’t understand the whole “Tooth Fairy” thing as it is.  In what messed up...

    Maybe some of you noticed that I haven’t written in the last week.  Alright, none of you noticed but that’s not the point.  My husband and I took the boys on a long awaited vacation on board the “brand new” Carnival cruise ship called ‘Splendor’, or as I am calling it ‘Ineptness’.

  • Supermarket Memories…

    By Julia Bendis

    July 9, 2011 | 3:20 pm

    Every time I’m at the Supermarket, I start to remember my very first trip to one just like it.  When you come to America from the former Soviet Union and enter ANY grocery store, you are bound to go into shock.  As I’ve written before, the shelves of U.S.S.R.’s grocery stores...

    The other day a friend of mine told me that I am the only person she knows that still owns an answering machine…  Apparently, everyone else in the world has long done away with those and only using electronic voice-mail now.  I’m a bit slow with technology, I admit.  However, I...

    I absolutely love shopping at Vintage and Second-Hand shops.  The thrill of getting a one of a kind piece of jewelry or dress is indescribable!  Finding that beautiful 50’s dress that no one else has is one of the reasons I enjoy Thrift stores, another is the fact that I absolutely...

    By Julia Bendis

    June 7, 2011 | 10:10 am

    Before I start, I’d just like to acknowledge that apparently, or should I say allegedly Sarah Palin’s knowledge of American history came from her misguided ten-year-old daughter.  That or she was raised by wolves in the forest.  That is the only explanation that I could find to her...

    As much as I love to participate in any and all civic duties, being chosen for Jury Duty just wasn’t going to happen.  Believe it or not, this was the first time I had ever received a notification requiring me to fulfill my civil duty.  As I opened the letter, immediately I started...

    Have you ever noticed how frumpy some rich women are? I’m thinking Barbara Bush. I’m thinking Margaret Thatcher. I’m thinking Queen Elizabeth. Well, it’s no accident: it’s deliberate. Someone from a ritzy old-money family explained to me that, “Being fashionable shows...

    March 23, 2011 | 12:01 pm

    At the dawn of the 20th century, the British royals were privy to a spiffy new system for infusing drinking water with carbon dioxide bubbles. It would take 53 years for SodaStream to reach commoners, and another 42 until it was acquired by an Israeli distributor and transformed into...

    March 3, 2011 | 10:21 am

    Please tell me how can anyone get ahead in this world, financially that is?  I should rephrase: how can an average person with children get a head in this world?
