A smile can change a whole day

Who says I’m obsessed with the GNABRT?  Prepare for a change of pace! It’s getting hotter these days; earlier than expected, frankly.  And that’s coming from a native and lover of hot temps. The sweltering of late summer seems to have jumped forward a month or two.  That makes walking, even in the early morning, an… Read more »

Get it back!

Ugh.  That sinking feeling after you press publish, post, comment, tweet or send.  Then comes the mad rush to figure out how to save the situation. At least when it came to my books, people are required to plunk down money before they can see my blunders (granted, this makes them extra mad, but the… Read more »

Stop the presses!

Whew.  Why do they make it so hard to take a vacation? Most of my preparations can be handled in-house (literally), but there are some circumstances that must be handled with the help of others.  Problem is, “others” don’t always make it easy to get their help.

That doesn’t always work well for others. While I wouldn’t go as far as to call myself a… Read more »

Who’s next?

At my favorite fresh market (The Boys in Delray Beach) yesterday, I filled up on my usual collection of fruits and veggies and then took my mini-cart through the mini-aisles (the aisles are tight to fit more stuff, but it leads to some serious traffic jams) to the fish counter. I was delighted that they had my… Read more »

Are you a writer?

I took my friend and her son to the Renaissance Festival last weekend and a good time was had by all.  He was especially thrilled by the extra-large bag of kettle corn, from which we filled his personal little paper bag in astonishing frequency. During the course of our wanderings, we came across a tent… Read more »

Charity case

I was chatting with my friend about the exemplary performance of one of my favorite companies (and large stock holding), Apple.  I mentioned if my other core holding had a similarly great announcement this afternoon, I was going to take a vacation. When he asked where I would go, I popped out the “visit every… Read more »
