It All Worked Out in the End

This year marks ten years since I had a colonoscopy—which means, I’m due for another. In honor of that historic milestone, I thought I’d republish an article from my first experience in 2011. Enjoy!   If you’re over 50 and you haven’t had a colonoscopy, pick up the phone and schedule one right now. There’s […]

Let Me Sleep On It

I share this out of deep respect for the Post-Thanksgiving-Meal Nap. I love to sleep. I’m good at it. And I can sleep anywhere — planes, trains, automobiles, and even waiting rooms.

Bob Newhart is Hilariously Insightful

I’m a big fan of Bob Newhart.  A friend recommended this Bob Newhart video from Mad TV.  The funny thing about this video, other than it’s a funny video, is that it’s also incredibly insightful. How often do we get ourselves into predicaments because we do things that are not helpful to us? What if […]

How Important is Congruity for Paula Deen…and For Us?

In our house, we have a running joke that Paula Deen would add butter to butter just to make it more buttery.  As a southerner, I am intimately familiar with the recipes that she demonstrates on her show and will admit that I could definitely enjoy a diet of nothing but her meals, at least […]

Holiday Stuffing

The US Coast Guard, according to a recent report, has reduced the passenger capacity on commercial vessels because the average weight of Americans has gone up from 160 pounds to 185 pounds.  I guess that means too much tonnage in the steerage. As I look at the piles of holiday cookies already accumulating in my […]
