The Power of Humor


I have a confession to make.  I lost my funny. Losing my funny has much more significance than losing a shoe, losing a championship game or even losing one’s virginity. It was a gradual thing. Never-ending stories of bad things happening to good people can muffle the soul. Add career changes, a non-ending Polar Vortex … Continue reading

Seriously, Leave Barbie Alone


Lean In…come closer…closer…Pssst…Leave Barbie alone. Seriously. It seems as though lately everyone is out to get this American toy treasure charging her with diminishing young girls self esteem in the form of a proposal to ban Girl Scout Barbie badges to creating a doll the more accurately mimics a female figure. It is absolutely ridiculous … Continue reading

A McPlea for the McFun Muffler


There’s a McJackass on the loose and they are taking all the McFun out of McDonald’s. The McDonald’s in my town was just rebuilt from the ground up. A well-deserved rebuild, considering this fast food joint earned social mecca status in 1978. Somehow ordering a diet soda cancelled out the calories of the large order … Continue reading

Fore The Love of Family


There is a new Superdad versus Supermom challenge in our house – teaching our tween daughter how to play golf. Some may defer to the more experienced person with the most tournament tags and expensive fancy golf clubs – let’s call him dad.  While others may defer to the most patient person even though her … Continue reading

A Cougar with Benefits


It’s been haunting me for almost 365 days. Everytime I look at a blank wall, I see a gigantic shadowy “5-0″ staring back at me. Really, what’s the big deal about turning 50?  Clifford the Big Red Dog, Amelia Bedelia and Denny’s are all blowing out 50 big ones this year. I was just getting … Continue reading
