Full width Antiques Road Show

In March of this year I found out that the Antiques Road Show was coming to Myrtle Beach South Carolina in June.  I love the show, so I excitedly went online, submitted my name to the ticket raffle, and crossed my fingers.  A couple months later I found out I’d won tickets!  I couldn’t believe it, over 100,000 people applied for tickets and only 6,000 […]

Sunscreen has been in the news quite a bit this year because of new FDA regulations 1.  Sunscreen manufacturers will be required to identify the type of rays that are being blocked, and how water resistant the formula is.  The regulations are not in effect yet, but they highlight an important topic: sunscreens are not created equal.  It would be nice to be able to […]

Full width Socializing

I was at a happy hour networking event and I was introduced to a girl named Primrose (alias alert!!!).  Primrose had a big smile, made good eye contact, and seemed very nice.  She asked me what I did and where I worked, and after obliging her with a quick answer I asked her the same thing.  As she spoke I decided that she was nice […]

This is the story of my battle with ulcerative colitis. Journal entry from early 2011:  “It is your first year of marriage.  You imagine how happy you are going to be starting your life together.  It sounds silly but I was looking forward to learning how to cook him dinner, dressing prettily and flirting with him, arranging fresh flowers on the dining table, entertaining, laughing, […]

Full width Garage Sale

My husband John loves tinkering with things and collecting tools.  It isn’t an expensive hobby because he buys most of his non-electric tools at the local pawn shop where they only cost a couple of dollars each.  Recently however, he started complaining that he couldn’t find anything he wanted at the pawn shops anymore.  I suggested that he try going to a yard sale, something […]

Sometimes people want to believe a purchase is an investment for one simple reason, they wanted to buy Item X, so they called Item X an investment as a justification for the purchase.  My point is, if you like something and want to buy it and you can afford it… then buy it.  But don’t fool yourself into believing that an item is an investment […]
