I’m at home during the day and usually have the TV on for background noise while I write and research articles. The other day I heard a talk show host talking about a list of fashion “noes” for women of various ages. I was so surprised at some of them I actually got up and […]
It seems to me, that comments on social media have stooped to an all time low this past year, mostly due to politics I believe. When I read a news article, and believe me, I use the word “news” loosely these days, I know that at least half of the comments will be negative. And […]
Levi’s CEO Chip Bergh recently said he had on a pair of denim jeans that were a year old and that they had never been washed, while attending Fortune’s Brainstorm Green conference in Laguna Niguel, California. He went on to say you should very seldom machine wash denim, which can break down fibers, fade colors […]
I think that most of us have been to at least one party, show, event, whatever it may be called that a friend or family member has had that was some type of multi-level marketing business. (MLM) I myself have some favorite stone baking rounds that came from Pampered Chef and my favorite face […]
It’s been projected that the average cost per person for Halloween this year will be $75. Of course some spend more, some less, and I think it depends on how much you decorate, if you’re throwing a party, and even what kind and how much candy you buy. I know that the years we threw Halloween parties […]
Back in the day, my mom had an uncanny ability to say the wrong thing at the wrong time. It didn’t happen all the time and she was very well-spoken but occasionally, she’d open her mouth and something would pop out that wasn’t quite appropriate at the time. For example, dealing with a frustrated car […]
Is it “appropriate” to have a second baby shower? Turns out, this is a pretty heated topic.
Do you think it’s OK to send out holiday greetings in email form or do you think they should be sent out in the mail? What do you think?
I am a voracious reader. I would read a phone book if there was nothing else to read. I read every single night and finish 2 to 3 books a week. My son, who is 24, loves reading too. Every year when he was in school he tested at a much higher reading level than […]
What do you think? Is spanking acceptable? Is it wrong?
Women in their 40’s should not wear miniskirts… or, so I thought. Now that I’m in my 40’s, I don’t like that rule anymore. And I think that way about a number of “rules” of fashion from my past. What do you think?
I received an email from one of our readers asking for help with a problem she has, wanting input from other women on how to handle a family situation she’s in. She wrote, “For the past 10 years my sister-in-law has been extremely rude to me. My husband’s sister has made derogatory comments about my […]
I have a friend who went to her regular hair salon but her normal hairdresser was out, so she had someone else cut and style her hair. She was SO happy with the results, much happier than she had been with any of her previous cuts but now she’s worried about her next appointment and who […]
Last week there was a case of two high school students (in Falcon, Colorado-District 49), who were harassing and bullying students on Facebook. The boys are facing harassment charges from a Facebook page they created called “Falcon Problems” and being charged with class-three misdemeanor harassment.
I do think that Valentine’s Day, like a lot of other holidays, has become more commercialized and more about how much you spend than about anything else.
So, when it comes to regifting or buying from a thrift store or even garage sale for gifts….would you, have you….what do you think? Leave a comment on the blog.
So as I was reading this article, I was feeling worse and worse about myself and wondering how much harm I had caused my (now grown) son, from some admitted times I yelled at him when he was younger.
It’s time for you, our wise and intrepid readers, to lend and ear and share some advice!
Send in a comment or question about what’s on your mind, and I’ll pick one a week and we’ll get other women’s input and advice and suggestions.
I don’t know if I even agree with the punishment the boys received. Will going to an alternative school change them? Make them more repentant?
