I remember... The Cuban Missile Crisis, air raid drills and fallout shelters. My parents whispering. Vietnam. My friends went off to war...or Canada. I remember life moving on. Then I got busy with life. Job, kids, family. Then one... Read more

Need a pen, post-it pad, company notepad, an insulated coffee cup or key chain picked up at a convention? Come to my store. It's a politic way of stating I live with a hoarder. You can't walk in my garage except for the path to the freezer. Th... Read more
A word on berries

To answer a few Spark friend questions. Nope, don't like blueberries or raspberries but if I was starving, I'd eat them and I will eat dried blueberries, cherries and cranberries. As a kid growing up in South Jersey, you knew when it was bl... Read more

Get real, Janet. Ok, I did. My weight tracker now shows the 5lbs I gained back. 208. My co-workers asked me to be in a challenge and I accepted. They get a $50 reward somehow on their insurance (I don't subscribe) if each of them walks ... Read more

I love sparkles. That's about as girly as I get. I took a Mental Health day today and spent a few hours with DD and GS2 for some shopping, play time and lunch. I left their house and thought hey, it's Me Time, do something different. Pedicur... Read more

It wasn't so much super as pretty. I've seen the Harvest Moon where it appears to take over the sky as it rises. However, at the end of the evening, I was satisfied. Lighthouse in Raritan Bay ... Read more
Trying to finish the day with an introspective, retroflective smile; again thanks to WATERMELLEN.

Some of us are of a "certain age" and can remember when girls didn't wear pants to school, playing sports was uncool and boys ruled the playground. In the late '60's and early '70's I tried my darndest to be pretty, cried when boys called me fa... Read more
