For The Love of Dog!

There are a lot of reasons to get a dog. Perhaps your kids are begging you for one because, well, they’re just so cute.  Maybe you would like an excuse to go for regular walks or you just like the idea of furry companionship.  Whatever the motivation, there is ...

Altared States

This past weekend, my parents  celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary, no mean feat in today’s world where almost 40% of first-time marriages end in divorce.   So, how do they do it, these mavens of matrimony? A good marriage can make life a breeze, a bad one can make it a living hell but how. Continue Reading…

Suddenly September

Tuesday 6 September 2011 . (0)

“The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time”, crooned James Taylor on a record (yes, a vinyl record) I listened to endlessly as a teen.  The phrase turned out to be patently true but often time seems to whip by like a bullet train.  Who hit the fast forward button? It’s suddenly September…. Continue Reading…

“Life is short; eat dessert first”, the bumper stickers proclaim and I must say, I agree with the sentiment.  I’m not one to save the good china for special occasions, hoard the bottle of expensive wine for the right moment or even hold back on telling people how I feel about them (when the feelings.

Wii can do it!

Monday 8 August 2011 . (1)

Yes, we can!   My seemingly eternal battle to get fit took an unexpected turn recently when my circuit gym went into receivership.  Seeking opportunity in disappointment, I began to wonder if I could break the tyranny of the television, the appliance that most contributed to the slothful condition of my body, turning it instead.

The Exercist

Tuesday 26 July 2011 . (0)

Ow.  Yes, I said “ow”.   Typing this blog is the most exercise I will get today because yesterday I had my “free personal training session” at a local gym I decided to try out with a cheap 2 month membership.   Did I mention “ow”?   I already belong to a Circuit gym but. Continue Reading…

Putting a lid on self-esteem

Monday 18 July 2011 . (1)

I’ve never looked good in hats.It’s not that I don’t like them (other than the goofy “hat-head” hairstyle effect they produce ); it’s just that they just never seem to flatter me.   So imagine my surprise when I came across a big, floppy straw hat while on vacation, tried it on for a lark,.

Fish and All That Jazz

Monday 4 July 2011 . (0)

What? You don’t think there is a connection between fish and Jazz (well, other than scales, of course)? This is your invitation to come and hear what I do when I’m not writing this blog; I’d love to meet you!   You will have two opportunities this week and yes, the first one is indeed.
