    I have mentioned here that it gives me grief to know that I am the last keeper of my beloved aunt's memory. She was married to a CT Supreme Court judge, so there are digital pictures and obituaries...

    That supports the fact that the recycling industry is just another industry. It doesn't really do the planet much good.

    I still recycle by bringing my cans, bottles and paper to the local transfer...

    How painful, Jeppy. So sorry to hear this, but you've hung in there a long time and I'm praying you both will be happier. As a mother who tends to cling too long to some things and accept other...

    The best flight I've ever had was in business class on Japan's airline, ANA, from JFK to Tokyo. My pictures didn't capture the look of the seats, so here is an article that pretty much shows where I...

    Yeah, true, wi-fi is no big deal anymore, but it used to be, and it was also nice that I could just open my computer and go. No signing in to different 3rd party wi-fi sites in every airport.

    No, once you are in the lounges, you get free food, free booze (except for premium brands), free newspapers, free wifi--pretty much everything is free. The food isn't meals of course--it's usually...

    Excellence and achievement are worth celebrating.

    Those who wish to improve our circumstances and work to achieve those ends are, by definition, not "in despair." Were our Founding Fathers "in...

    +100. Thank you.

    I sometimes think we became alienated when we left the proverbial Garden of Eden. In the present context, I don't blame Jeff Bezos for wanting to ditch planet Earth just because...

    The only interesting thing I've come across about Dominos is their pizza war with Pizza Hut on History Channel. Apparently Pizza Hut was eating their lunch until Dominos marketed the 30 minute...

    Senior moment. I knew "Dominick's" wasn't right, but I even googled it and Domino's didn't come up.

    I'm not crazy about chain pizzas. I prefer mom-and-pop. I'd rather cook a big meal than get Dominick's Pizza. I really dislike thick crusts and super-sweet sauce you find on most chain pizzas. The...

    I love cold pizza for breakfast. This might horrify some people, but we leave the leftover pizza out at night, and I just grab a piece in the morning to have with my coffee. And I eat it with my...

    My favorite summer soup is gazpacho, although DH doesn't like it. It's delicious and you use up cucumbers and tomatoes.

    Minestrone soup has been our soup du jour this past month, because it's a great way to use zucchini and other veggies. One of the big food doctors--maybe Mark Hyman?--eats minestrone soup for...

    My wariness is not with the Government, but with social media, and not with social media content, because as you said, it's a platform. But as a platform it has tremendous power. Watching The Social...

    I am very hesitantly purging a wing chair, half of a pair we bought used two years ago. I hate to throw it away, but the upholstery has seen better days, and the legs are wobbly, and we replaced it...

    Dogs: Leash vs Fence

    It is 9:57am on the East Coast, and I'm still in my robe. I did have early telephone interviews, so I might have an excuse, but, frankly, I'm amazed that these days, I stay in my robe for hours.
