The BlogHer Conference: One Starfish at a Time

This moment defines BlogHer '15 for me. I looked down at my hand and my ring wasn't there. IT WASN'T THERE. I immediately flipped out, tossing everything out of my bag and crawling underneath the table. But here's the thing.

We went to see The View and got to sit on the front row, and then went to an Ice Bar. It was sooooooo cool, no pun intended. Okay, it was kinda intended.)...more

A Few Thoughts on: Education, Gwyneth Paltrow and World Vision

Things were very quiet here on the blog last week.  I was around but, I was quite crazy from a lack of sleep due to my 7 - year - old's month-long bout with insomnia.  As you can imagine, when your child can't get to sleep or stay asleep, you don't get to sleep much either.  Some nights we slept a total of two hours and by last week it had all caught up with me.  I was pretty much incapable of carrying on a conversation for longer than five minutes so, obviously writing blog posts was out of the question. ...more

Iron Man 3 — More Talk, Less Action, Please

Iron Man 3 is quite entertaining. It is also over-bloated, poorly plotted and scripted, and  in fact, a mess. But what makes it entertaining, not unsurprisingly, is its cast, especially Robert Downey Jr., who is back as Tony Stark, the brilliant motor-mouthed inventor and creator of all those cool yet heavy metal suits. While onscreen Downey never stops talking, which in some other actor's case might be annoying, but with him is a blessing. Downey even gets to explore a side of Tony Stark that we don't usually get to see — all-out panic....more
