Best Reality Show Ever?

      No Comments on Best Reality Show Ever?

Dear Norway, Please bring National Firewood Night to the United States.  Watching 8 hours of a fireplace full of burning wood would be better programming than anything on MTV in the last five years.  While I doubt that Americans would debate the proper way to stack wood, OK we probably would, we definitely need something soothing on television and for… Read more »

Singles: Not Doomed

      No Comments on Singles: Not Doomed

The other day I got a Google Alert about “dating in Sacramento.” The local Fox affiliate did a piece called Dating in Sacramento, Are Singles Doomed? Instantly, I was pissed off.

Online Dating Chronicles: Take a Chance on Me

To this day, I still hate relationship and dating advice. Most of it is bunk. Actually, there is one rule that I wish more people would follow: Be polite.

I like both equally.  This weekend some friends are hosting their annual holiday wine tasting party.  Everyone brings a bottle of wine and blind tasting ensues.  Everyone picks their favorite and a winner is chosen. I’d say about 25 people are coming…. Read more »

Not many people can claim to have ancestors on both the Mayflower and the Santa Maria, but I can. Of course, so can my sister and her kids, but that’s besides the point.
