Bridge over troubled waters…

Still, finding these bonus codes is a herculean task - http://undergroundpulse.net. When my husband and I escape from the city, we must cross over the RFK Bridge (formerly known as the Triborough).  This unpleasant journey frays our nerves and weakens our faith in humanity.  Contractors whiz by, easily twenty miles over the speed limit, aggressively fighting to get from point A to point B.  Cabs register their disapproval of safe driving skills with blaring horns...

Boy do I wish I was a fly on Blago'...

So, the recent guilty verdict for ex-Governor Rod Blagojevich has me thinking about politicians’ wives. How many times have we seen men in power admit extramarital affairs, lawlessness, drug use, etc…while their long-suffering wives stand at their side, creating a united front. Her presence sending the signal: ‘He can’t be all that bad. Look! He still has the...

Three things

1. I love California again. I can’t wait until two of the Housewives of the O.C. are married to one another. 2. Congrats to ROBYN and BETTY who each won a copy of the I Hate to Cook Book. (I promise there was no favoritism due to Robyn’s fabulous first name. I used a random number generator for these contests) 3. Honorable mention (which sadly wins nothing but my eternal...

These old school cookies rule!

I was lucky enough to be in Robyn’s living room yesterday as she was pulling “Selma’s Best Oatmeal Cookies” out of the oven.  Following the recipe from Peg Bracken’s I HATE TO COOK BOOK, Robyn recreated some seriously delicious cookies. I can’t stop eating them. Please visit Robyn’s post from yesterday for a chance to win the 50th Anniversary...

Muchas gracias and congratulations

First, thanks all for your very kind emails in response to my last post. The medical excitement in my life is an emotional roller coaster right now, but all the support is so helpful. Jim’s being a superstar. He’s been in so many doctors and hospital waiting rooms lately that he’s beginning to rate and critique them. Maybe he should start a new section on Yelp.com. A...

Extra! California working to ban divorc...

I love me some political theater so you can imagine how pleased I was to learn about the 2010 Marriage Protection Act.  This grassroots initiative is looking to put the smack-down on divorce like Prop 8 did for gay marriage in 2008.  The campaign needs 700,000 signatures by 2012 to make the ballot. The slogan for the movement is, “You said ‘Till death do us part.’ ...

A girl’s gotta read

Hey y’all…an off-subject post here, but we wanted to add some thrills and chills by offering a little contest. The prize? BEACH READING! Who doesn’t love a great book in the summertime? And who wouldn’t love 5 of them?! My lovely publisher, Hachette Book Group, has kindly offered to one of our lucky readers a set of the following: Adam By Ted Dekker The Island By...

The OGs, back in the neighborhood!

The OGs, back in the neighborhood!. This is wicked adorable and completely heartfelt! Enjoy!

Quit saying half of all marriages end in...

I was listening to the radio this morning listening to the radio and Tara Parker-Pope was being interviewed about her new book, For Better: The Science of a Good Marriage. She dropped a doosey bit of knowledge on the air- the divorce rate in the United States has been declining.  It is no longer 50%.  Apparently, we are collectively enjoying our spouses a lot more...

I take it personally…

I felt the same way when Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins split.  I just want to see if there is anything I can do to help or convince them otherwise. Dear Susan and Tipper, First of all, I’m really sorry about your partnership/marriage busting up.  Now, I know you don’t know me but I just want to make sure you have done everything possible to save your relationships. ...
