It Wasn’t Pretty was pretty good

Celebrities and movie stars are not my thing. I do not watch ET or read People Magazine (except the free copy while I'm getting a mani-pedi), and I get impatient with the disproportionate amount of media coverage they get for their contribution to life in general. While I enjoy going to the movies and have a passing interest in the industry behind it, I'm not generally a fan. Except when it comes to a few women and one of those women is Diane Keaton. I fell in love with her style…

Well-heeled means not wearing Manolo Blahniks

Pearl Bailey once said, "I've been rich and I've been poor and honey, rich is better." I know I've certainly been poor at times in my life and it was not fun. Not having money can mean living a simple, happy, uncomplicated life but in today's world it more often means worrying about not having enough to pay our bills, how to save for a home or vacations, or the big one, how to retire comfortably. After hearing the young author interviewed on the radio, I just finished reading a…

Albert Einstein was once asked a simple question for which he did not have the answer.

And I certainly don't clutter my head with anything I can do without. The journal Psychological Science reports that tests on university students who hand-wrote their class notes instead of typing them on a laptop had better retention of what they were learning.…

To “e” or not to “e”, that is the question

Digital e-readers are becoming increasingly more popular and are available in different devices to suit most individual preferences and pocketbooks. A divide does exist, however, between those who have embraced the new technology and those who prefer the traditional hard or soft-cover paper version. I have one foot firmly planted in each camp. On one hand, I love the convenience of downloading books from a retailer or the library from the comfort of my LaZ-Girl chair with a lovely cup of tea at my side. On the other hand, I'm…

This #GIRLBOSS has her sh$# together

The first time I heard the name Sophia Amoruso was during a radio interview when she was promoting her new book, "#GIRLBOSS". This 20-something young woman was describing her path to becoming owner of a highly-successful on-line retail fashion business called Nasty Gal. Her business smarts were remarkable for someone so young and my heart sang when she outlined her advice based on lessons learned that were so in-line with my own that I couldn't wait to read her book. Amoruso was the rebellious only child of baby boomers who…
