Hi, Al! I just got your letter today. The first thing that slipped out of the envelope was the picture of the lake. That rocked!!!! You captured it perfectly. The only thing missing was a seagull flying off somewhere in the distance. That’s such a fantastic photo and I’ll totally treasure it. I sincerely wish I was there right now. That is definitely going on my desk, where I can look at it and find my “happy place” every day. Thank you so, so much for that. More on your thoughts on ______ later. ...more
In today's day and age, women are taking control. They are stepping up to the plate to take control instead of waiting on the guy to make a move. I think this is awesome. Some guys out there don't like an independent woman, it makes them feel insecure. Well boo hoo guys! We women are taking over!

While you're talking to him, don't let your eyes wander. You want him to know that you are interested in him, not the surroundings.
A little harmless flirting never hurts. Give him a compliment or a light touch on the hand....more
If you've been reading my posts about the internet, you know that I am happily married to the man of my dreams as a result of meeting and working with him on the 'net. I have also posted a couple of blogs about my other adventures on the internet, some of which were devastating, disastrous, and disappointing....more
So, again I have to say that at this point in time, these letters are a bit heart-wrenching to read. Don't get me wrong -- I know that the love Alan and I have now is a thousand times stronger and deeper than what he had with his ex. They were first loves: young, immature, unfaithful, a bit selfish. But still, reading about his love and heartache for her now makes me wrinkle my nose in that slightly green-tinged sort of way. On the other hand, though, I have to really admire his dedication and honesty about her. He's right....more
Chivalry Man In this day and age when women are working in roles that were once exclusive to men, men are just a little confused when it comes to such things as opening doors, standing when she enters a room or excuses herself from the table. Countless times I've had men express this confusion by saying something like, When I reached for the door she gave me a look that I took to mean, 'I'm not helpless. I'm a lawyer for God's sake. I think I can open a door all by myself.' Read more ...more
In my opinion women scratch their heads just as much as men do when Christmas rolls around. I actually think girls are easier to buy for than men. When you walk in a mall the majority of the stores you find are for females so the options are endless… For men things get a little tricky. They don’t only get tricky; they get expensive too!...more
Lately I have been noticing a disturbing pattern with certain people in my life. There seems to be an outbreak of “lying.” First, I am just insulted that those around me feel the need to lie to me. Second, I am insulted that they think they can get away with such deception. The severity of these lies range vastly some of the lies are pretty small and insignificant I believe they are called “white lies,” and others are much bigger and just downright hurtful. I would be a hypocrite if at this point I did not admit that YES I have lied in the past....more
I’m confused. Seriously. I have all these feelings and emotions, and I don’t know which way they are pulling me. For every feeling and thought telling me to go in one direction, there is an equal and opposite feeling telling me to go another (I think I’ve finally figured out what Isaac Newton was talking about!). I truly don’t know what to do. Should I get back together with my ex or should I stay single?...more
Hello, girlfriend... How are ya? Been looking forward to writing you, but I only write letters on my days off. Each chapter of my book takes about five days. Mostly editing. I can type a 30,000 character chapter out in maybe 4 hours. Then it takes 5 days (a draft a day) to polish and edit it into something I feel is presentable. Of course I understand it can always use some more professional editing, but I have to let it go somewhere and move on to the next chapter....more
Hey Big Spender At a time when the economy is spiraling down at a dizzying pace the topic of money is on the tongues of nearly everyone. And now, more than ever, people are keeping an eye out for good deals, stretching their hard-earned dollars. Saving money on purchases has become the in thing to do, while flashing wealth is well, so 1980s. ...more
