Now what?

I am experiencing a post- Olympic let down this week. I wasn’t even planning on watching much of the Games but I got sucked in about day two and watched it all- skiing, skating, even curling! The only thing I didn’t watch was hockey because that really bores me (and yet I watched curling? Yes, I admit that makes less… Read more »

Remember when we all thought the year 2000 was so far away it would never come? Even better, remember when we all thought we would be living on the moon and driving spaceships by the year 2010?

This past week Tiger Woods joined a long list of celebrities who have checked into some kind of treatment center for “sex addiction”. Now I understand alcohol and drug addiction, food addiction and maybe even shopping addiction. But sex addiction???? That is really straining the limits of what I can consider an illness.

      No Comments on What’s a ring worth?

Lately I have been involved in multiple conversations about people upgrading their wedding rings. These are generally people who married young and didn’t have a lot of money for rings who now are buying themselves nicer ones. For some reason this really bothers me.   My mother acutally wore out her wedding ring and got a new band. The same… Read more »
