…Go Fly a Kite

The expression. “go fly a kite,” is usually meant to tell someone to take a hike. Today, rest assured, I’m using it in a different way.

While it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, flying a kite is one of life’s simple pleasures. It lets you stop and just be for a while. Which is something most of us could use a little help with. Read the rest of this entry


…make your excuses


Yes, it’s another blog post on the health benefits of chocolate, because like chocolate itself, there’s no such thing as too much when it comes to justifying chocolate consumption. Read the rest of this entry

…lose pinterest

For those who’ve forgotten, tomorrow is Mother’s Day.  Also, shame on you. But not to worry, you still have a few hours to correct the situation.

As with any apocalyptic prediction, this one has attracted plenty of crazies…I mean true believers.

Of course, who am I to judge, I admit I don’t know what will happen or not happen on Friday. Maybe the world will end. Maybe the Mayans will finally release the new edition of their calendar (it’s been too long). The truth is that none of us really know.

Of course, if you’re feeling a little squeamish, and aren’t quite ready to meet your maker, you can always book a trip to Sirince, Turkey or Bugarach, France. Both cities are supposedly being spared the doomsday Friday due to “positive energy.”

The rest of us will just have to try the less expensive option, a little closer to home and with our own “positive energy.”
