Empathy is the starting point

 Empathy truly is the starting point of oh so many things. I just read an article on Upworthy about empathy, which was actually paid for by Hallmark for their “Care Enough Initiative.” No matter who paid for it I thought the list included in the article was rather good. Unfortunately it was written for the […]

Ponytail Hats to Keep Your Ears Warm

Yep those ponytail hats are my new best friends. It certainly appears that winter is fast approaching. Which means around here super cold, biting winds that just about freeze my ears off! You see I walk and hike quite a bit and when I do I pull my hair back into a pony tail. Why? […]

Friends of friends…

  Only means more friends for you! And who the heck doesn’t want more friends? But there is one area in which I actually believe women (and probably a few men as well) are really dropping the ball. Many years ago I had lunch with a guy…ok, so it was sort of a blind date. […]

Can we please call it what it is

  July 4th my friend is a date! It is not a holiday. Yes, I know that sometimes I can be a nitpicker. I’m not denying it. Some things just bug me while others sort of get a pass. And for some reason this year this one just bugs the hell out of me. There […]
