Pomegranate Perfection

My nephew was over our house recently, and spotted about a dozen pomegranates sitting on our kitchen counter. “I guess you guys went to Costco,” he said. “I didn’t know you ate pomegranates. I have never seen them here before.”  In unison my husband, Marc, and I replied that we love them, and that we pretty much eat one every morning when they are in season.  “I try to open them the night before,” I explained, “because they are so messy and take forever to open.” “Oh, that’s what you think,” he said with a smile. “Come with me…....more

Peek-a-Boo... I See you.....

The night before my husband, Marc, and I were to leave to spend a few nights in Manhattan, we had Alex, the cat’s, favorite dinner, chicken parmesan. We couldn’t resist giving him a little bit. He was asking us so sweetly. Unfortunately, we didn’t cut the pieces small enough for him, and he got sick from it immediately.  The next morning, we expected him to be fully recovered. Unfortunately, he wasn’t. Although he seemed very happy and playful, he showed no interest in his breakfast, which is not common for him. As the day continued, Marc and I kept a close eye on him....more

The Police Perspective

This is the 17th installment in the Bad Luck Cadet Series. It’s best to start at the beginning "Accidents Happen" to enjoy my adventures at the police academy after my mid-life crisis. It’s all about fun, laughter and pain. Well maybe pain, pain and pain! The academy was changing me, mentally, as well as physically. Physically, I didn’t just have arm bicep muscles. I had muscles in my forearms, thighs and butt....more

Trying to Come in Last

Life is rough. We all suffer. People love us, people hurt us. People come and go in our lives. Sometimes they move away, either physically or emotionally. Sometimes they die. Death is crummy. (In case you wanted to know my stance on the matter, there it is.) We all have bad times. But mine are worse. (Well, not really.) ...more

Thank You Betrayal

Life is rather wonderful in that there are some things we CAN count on. For instance, there is this little delight: if we do not learn a lesson well the first time we then get the chance to have another go at it! Yay!  If we are particularly stubborn or stupid then we get many opportunities. Betrayal may seem an odd title for a post about gratitude…  but there it is, I am finally becoming grateful for betrayal. Let me back track a little....more

It's only a matter of time

Judging from the weather reports, I am sure that I am not the only one who is sick of the winter and the snow…. I honestly can’t remember a winter that has been so harsh.  The other day, I was emailing with a client who lives in Florida. When I resolved her issue she replied back to me and wrote, “Thanks you very much!!! Keep Warm!!!”  Keep warm? Was she kidding? Didn’t she realize that the entire north feels like the arctic? I couldn’t help myself....more

Gotta Have Faith

Today I was pondering whether or not I should blog. There has been something heavy on my mind for a couple of days, but I didn't know if I should write about it. And then I saw a commercial that ended the dilemma and brings me to now. The commercial was about faith....more
