My child is really special (to me)

My son is building a pirate ship behind me right now. Along with the construction work to create the perfect pirate vessel, he is telling me about the various adventures we are going to have once on board. There will be buried treasure, sword fighting and a daring rescue of trapped monkeys. Listening to the way his mind works is a privilege for me. In short, my son is one of the most amazing people I've ever met....more

An Inconvenient Celebration?

I love the holiday season. I love the festive lights, the feelings of goodwill and the stories of our various beliefs and how we all celebrate in our unique and special ways....more

The Afternoon Nap - Chapter 3, Chili & Bread

I had no idea what I was going to eat for dinner and I was too tired to care. I had never made the much-needed grocery store visit that had been last on my list of errands today but luckily, there was take-out food.It had been a long first part of the day and I was exhausted. My errands began at the gas station and each leg of the trip around town became more frustrating, probably more from my lack of the “ability to deal” with the growing pile of errands gone wrong....more

Wrap it Up: Samsung Galaxy Tab S Reviewed

I was tickled when Samsung sent me a Galaxy Tab S (8.4″ 16GB) to “test-drive” right before the holiday season. The kids are getting older, and quite frankly, I am always completely clueless what to get them for Christmas. Long gone are the days of toddler toys that come in huge boxes for a small price-tag. Now I want to be sure I’m getting them quality items that won’t be obsolete by the New Year. Spoiler alert: the Samsung Galaxy Tab S hits most of the marks....more

The Implementation of Dumb Ideas

In this week's silly post I'd like to talk about an ad currently running on Hulu for a brand of air-fresheners. Aside from the fact that air-fresheners contain numerous toxic chemicals that can cause everything from reduced sperm counts to cancer, the ad is really stupid....more


You know what annoys me? The media. They make people mad over something that has nothing to do with the situation.  Why do they have to title things : WHITE COP KILLS BLACK MAN.  Why can't they write: MIDDLE-AGED MAN KILLED BY OFFICER.And some people fall for it! I am sure there is racism still these days but not just for blacks. Some people say "Oh your family is in the mafia?" because I am Italian.  That is just ignorance. I just shrug it off - what can you do? Do I cause a scene? Do I get violent? NO because that is TRASHY....more

You Don't Fit: The "One-Size-Fits-All" Trend Sets A Dangerous Precedent Beyond Body Size

As far as I am concerned, unless its written on a scarf, 'one-size-fits-all' is the biggest lie the fashion industry might ever tell. While on the surface ridiculously naive and discriminatory, it is more than a tag on a piece of clothing most of us will never wear....more

WARNING: We Are Being Watched as to How We Respond to the Victoria Secret Fashion Show

When you hear the words ‘Victoria Secret Fashion Show,’ what happens? Does your confidence slowly start to erode? Do you feel inspired after seeing the models strut the runway with the new lingerie? Or, maybe you cringe at the idea of hearing all the self body-shaming that occurs on social media the day before and after?The inevitable VS Fashion Show has come and gone. Taking into consideration the different emotions and thoughts we have, here are two important issues I believe we need to address....more

More than karma needed to address gender inequality (and Congrats #22at22)

Microsoft isn't everyone's favorite company (having to refresh my computer twice in November didn't help my #NaBloPoMo objectives last month), but being a US$344 billion company means you must be doing something right (or wrong, depending on your view of its business practices). ...more
