In Love with Anybody Part II
Sunday, July 09, 2017      23 comments

I enjoyed the comments on yesterday's blog, can you fall in love with anybody . . . and the 36 questions. So many of you were (like me) rather horrified about the average cost of current weddings at $80K, which may very well be higher in the US... Read more
Can You Fall in Love with Anybody? Mandy Len Catron
Saturday, July 08, 2017      24 comments

We (in post-Victorian Western societies at least) place such a premium on THE ONE and on romantic love . . . And: dealing with divorce files I see a tremendous amount of fall-out from that focus on romance. Almost always, no pre marriage... Read more

Friday, July 07, 2017      25 comments

I just realized: I did not track my nutrition at all July 2, 4, 5 or 6. And I was only "sorta/kinda" tracking for the week preceding that. Sticking to my typical salads/soups/yogourt/berries routine, though. So: I believe I've been eatin... Read more

Much Better Thank You!
Wednesday, June 28, 2017      29 comments

I appreciated all the well-wishers and took their advice: slept a lot, drank lots of fluids, mostly Bengal Spice and ginger peach herbal teas, and puttered a bit in the garden to get some Vitamin D! Much better today. (No details, but "dir... Read more

Is it reasonable to expect a 66 year old should be wearing shorts? Uh, maybe not. My Mum decided about age 40 that she was "too old" for shorts . . But when it's hot on the golf course, my choices would be golf skirt, capris or shorts. ... Read more
