Tools of Titans: Learn From the Best

In the age of all things digital, do you have a current book to pass along to others? A book that makes you think and stretch and marvel at what is written? A book that can be read in wandering moments or in binging gulps? A book of fascinating insights and workable information? I do! […]

I’m a Sucker For a Scary Story

Photography Halps!

When I bought my baby, my fancy-pants DSLR, I renewed my love of all things photography. As one who is self-taught from back in the day (with film!) (actual film) (you know, the kind that needs developing) (the expense was intense) (oy), I can stand a refresher and what better way to do that than […]

Crafting with Choochie (no, really)

Those who know me know I’m an uncrafty soul. A crafty baker, sure, but I’m not one for hot glue guns or glitter. Matter of fact, Hobby Lobby and Michael’s make me itchy…so itchy. Despite my aversion to all things crafts, I have attempted projects from time to time. After all, I did raise a […]

A Sick Day For Amos McGee

You know when I find a book Sweet E likes, I’m passing that badboy along to you guys. This book was read over the phone, without the benefit of video, and E never made a sound as the story progressed.  When I was finished, he had remembered the animals and Amos.  I don’t know of […]

Old Books; Old Friends

I love children’s books, hardcovers to be precise.  If the books are old and broken-in on top of that, well, then I’m in love-love and I might want to marry them. So many of the books that I read to Boy are still in our possession, waiting for Sweet E to discover. Two of my […]

Weathering The Storm of Medical Bad News

I love a good book. If that book also offers sound advice while dealing with a medical crisis, I’ll not only be grateful, but will pass it along to you guys. This is that book. From Back Cover: When the diagnosis is serious, what makes the difference between hope and despair? As a practicing oncologist, […]

Mog the Forgetful Cat

I’m not a cat person.  I like cats, just other people’s cats  I’m pretty sure I’d like your cat.  But, for me, it’s dogs all the way.  And ponies.  And sometimes blue birds, of the happiness variety. So how did we end up with a cat when Boy was younger? The Universe conspired against me, […]
