I admit that Glamour is not my magazine of choice any longer. It probably hasn’t been my magazine of choice for over 20 years, once I started having kids. Nowadays, I am likely to have it in the shopping cart for an art project for my daughter or to mail to the daughter away at… Continue reading The Next Jake
I have said it before – my calendar looks rather inky. I cannot seem to find many spots where there is not something written and the events keep coming. This weekend is one of my favorite events of the year – the annual Music Boosters’ Chicken Barbeque. We are all praying for good weather, though… Continue reading Music Boosters’ Chicken BBQ
Yes, as I have said before, I have a profile on an online dating site. I blog there as well as here but here is today’s question or thought. Do books and movies corrupt our view of life? I have a very busy life and very busy weekend. I am actively – probably not as… Continue reading Do books and movies corrupt our view of life?
It is beautiful outside – already 60F which is unusual for this time of year where I live. I am on my way…. to Niagara Falls. It is one of my favorite road trips and I make it about 12 times a year. I am heading to Lewiston and Niagara Falls to pick up my… Continue reading On the Road …. Yet Again
Yes, it is true! Memorial Day weekend is upon us which means so is the unofficial start to the summer season and I can’t wait.

There was the March trip to Niagara Falls for my daughter’s first honor society induction. This was a quick day trip. There was the weekend trip to New… Continue reading On the Road Again
I say I dread this and, in some ways, I do but it is a necessity. I have to go shopping. I am looking for a dress to wear to a retirement party to be held at a country club. That is a bit more “dressiness” than my normal clothing is but it is okay… Continue reading A Task I Dread
I know no one could ever tell but I am really not biased. Yes, I did a huge, extremely long blog entry on the first democratic debate and nothing on either of the two republican debates but I swear I can justify. First off, I am a registered democrat. This means I will really only… Continue reading I’m Really Not Biased
What use to be an annual event in June was moved to May several years ago. The reasoning – today is school budget vote day in New York State. Schools all across NY are going to the polls today in hopes the voters in each district will approve the school board’s operating budget and most… Continue reading Ice Cream Social Here I Come!
What is it about May and June that they are so busy? My May calendar barely has any white space on it. Thankfully, the one bare spot it had was the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. This is normally a travel weekend for me. I have spent recent Memorial Day weekends at soccer tournaments in… Continue reading What is it about May and June?
