The Real Toilet Paper Wars February 16, 2018

I am a big fan of indoor plumbing.  I am NOT a fan of indoor plunging.  There is nothing more gag-producing than jamming a wood-and-rubber plunger into a poo filled toilet and slurping it up and down to unclog a septic system.  Especially if the poo in question is not your own.  Seriously, people.  Did…

Book Review: Angel Bumps February 9, 2018

Angel Bumps: Hello from Heaven First of all, I want this disclaimer out there: menopause has made me into more of a sap than I used to be.

A Night at the Opera January 5, 2018

I get it.  You have some preconceived notion of the Opera being stuffy and boring and something that only rich people do after a diet of caviar and foie gras and a glass full of the desalinated tears of poor people.  If you have any positive associations with it, those associations are related to Bugs…

Game Changer December 22, 2017

My life has recently changed for the better.  My son got his driver’s license, and it is an absolute game changer. We did not run out and buy him a new car.  Rather, the old minivan that we bought when I was pregnant with him, is his for the using.  It runs just fine, and…
