Have You Ever Experienced a Travel Nightmare? We Want to Hear About It!

Have you ever experienced a travel or holiday nightmare?  I just got back from a long awaited family reunion near Daytona Beach Florida.  Two lovely mishap-free days were followed by five straight days of cold, gray, relentless rain.  As a special bonus, I also got the worst chest cold I’ve had in seven years.  Nothing says “Beach Holiday Fail” like spending a rainy afternoon inside an ice cold theater watching a Woody Allen movie. Tell us about your travel apocalypse on the BlogHer Opinion Poll below.  Mine is still painfully fresh, but in the words of the ...more

It's Almost Independence Day: What is Your Favorite Tradition for the 4th?

I love the 4th of July -- it’s the perfect holiday. Combine a day off from work with yummy things to eat, drinks, and fireworks…it just doesn't get any better! I once made a red velvet flag cake (pictured) for my sister's July 4th pool party. Actually, I made two; the first one melted in the 100-degree, Southern California San Fernando Valley heat. We also have a weird family tradition of playing the Jimi Hendrix version of "The Star Spangled Banner" really loud in the backyard. I'm sure the neighbors love us. ...more

Which Current Television Show Has "Jumped the Shark"?

Are you familiar with the term “jumped the shark”? A few years back, after the popular TV series “Happy Days” had been on the air for many seasons, they featured an episode where break out star “Fonzie” came to Los Angeles.  For those of you who don’t remember Happy Days, it was a family sit-com set in the 50’s, and Fonzie was the leather jacket clad “cool” guy with slicked back hair.  In the L.A. ...more
