One Stop Shopping?

Does one size really fit all? That’s what I was thinking as I went about doing my holiday shopping this year, wandering the aisles of my local supercenter and jostling through the clusters of shoppers. When did we get to this point of impersonal shopping, with forty or fifty different stores (departments) under one giant [...]

Thanksgiving 2009

It's been a while since I last blogged about anything and I truly hope you'll forgive my absence. There doesn't seem to be a good reason why time gets away from me but it certainly does. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I simply want to express my gratitude for a few things. First and foremost is [...]

Christmas At Our House

Christmas morning didn’t hold for me as much fascination as did Christmas Eve. That is still true for me today. Maybe it is the anticipation of Christmas Day or the magic of night time with stars twinkling in a crisp, clear sky that makes Christmas Eve so very special. Or maybe it was simply the [...]

What’s Your Favorite Treat?

As much as I love sweet treats, and there certainly are plenty of them around Halloween, the allure of a basket full of candy pales in comparison to that wonderful Italian treat known as pizza. My first pizza came from that hallmark of pizzerias – Roseland Apizza in Derby. I was most likely four or [...]

Fair Weather

As an adult I loved going to the Big E (Eastern States Exposition). For weeks on end we see the billboards and hear the announcements on the radio telling us of special features and reminding us of the dates. Closer to home my favorites were the Guilford Fair, the Durham Fair, and of course the [...]

A Small Milestone

Writing my current manuscript has taken longer than I would have expected. Don't know why this one gave me so much trouble at the beginning - maybe it was because I knew how it would end but couldn't see the right place to start the story. I've had lots of input from friends and relatives [...]

Monday Monday

Isn't is amazing how quickly a week goes by? And why is it that the older I get the more quickly the weeks flash past? Actually, I'm quite relieved to have it be Monday since I've spent the past four days nursing a malady of the digestive system. Now isn't that a fancy way to [...]

Well Here We Are Again….

There's a wonderful song by Cher that starts with those words. And how appropriate those words are for almost any situation. Today being Labor Day means that we are at an ending/starting place for lots of things. For example: the official end to summer and the start of back to school; the end (hopefully) of [...]
