Do You Go with Your Gut

Go With Your Gut, or Not? I believe in this. It's something my mother taught us, which I then taught to my girls. But then... And just when you think it's safe to trust your gut, Psychology Today has this to say; more than you propbably ever wanted to know:... Sign in to see full entry.

"Stop That Girl!"

"What's in that Bag?" Long, long ago, in a faraway place, when one could board airplanes by arriving just before departure, and flying was a fun experience, where they gave you adult beverages to sip for no reason at all, I used to hop the Red Eye quite often for a quick flight to go visit...

In Memoriam

Lifeguard We'd just moved to a new house in a new area when I was in high school. It gets scalding hot in parts of So Cal, and at any time of the year for that matter, so it was great that there was a community pool just for the residents of our little tract. After school my sis and I would often go... Sign in to see full entry.

He Didn't Want to Go to War...But He Did!

BUT FIRST, A MESSAGE TO ALL THOSE WHO SERVED, IN WHATEVER CAPACITY; YOU'RE ALL HEROES! THANK YOU! "I Don't Wish to Serve." Yet he did, and became a U.S. hero. Sometimes ya gotta do whatcha gotta do, and Sgt. Alvin York, USA hero, did just that. He was one of the most decorated soldiers of WW I.... Sign in to see full entry.

Mama's Magic

"How'd She Do That?" My cousin X and I once had a conversation - and a laugh, about how it was that our mothers were able to make lunch of sandwiches on Wonder Bread for three children, using only one tiny can of tuna. Maybe they were skimpy sandwiches, but as I recall, they seemed just right. I... Sign in to see full entry.

Who the Heck was Ettore Boiardi?

I know you've heard of him... He was an Italian immigrant who settled in Ohio, became a chef, and later owned a successful Italian restaurant. His food was so popular that he began selling it outside the restaurant to people who wanted his sauces and pastas. He later purchased a large plant to keep... Sign in to see full entry.

And the "One More Little Thing" Was...

Can You Say "Lady?" I promised you one last little tidbit that had happened during one of our River trips, and I'm a L ady of my word, so here it is. The Landing had a boat launch, and it was necessary to use it to get the ski boat into the water. While the boat was being launched, some of us were... Sign in to see full entry.

The Third Time's a Charm

Isn't It? They bribed me. Promised me this time it would be different. And I believed them. They lured me in with the brochure, the brochure showing the glorious sights one could view from an air-conditioned houseboat on The River. There was seating, beds, a fridge, stove, sink, and above all, a... Sign in to see full entry.

Vacation Nightmare

"Book Me a Room, Please!" With the long Memorial Day weekend upcoming here in the US, many people's thoughts turn to vacations. Some folks are great at camping out, roughing it; finding water, washing frying pans in a river, sleeping in tents. I get it that it's fun. Me, I was never a "good" camper....

And Then at My Wedding...

A Ring Goes Missing! Since weddings have been a topic of conversation this past weekend, something that happened at my own wedding (back in the Dark Ages) came to mind. Having no ring-bearer, I chose my flower girl to also carry the ring - on a special pillow. But RP, not trusting a three year-old... Sign in to see full entry.
