We have had absolutely perfect weather all week, and but for one thing, it has been an absolutely perfect, dream (the good kind) week. We all got along, no blow ups or major drama, yotta yotta yaffs, all doing what we wanted separately and together. I got to be with my gorgeous, fabulous fam, my […]

I finally dragged my entire crew, not quite kicking and screaming, but a bit under duress, to Goshen. Robert Wolfson, my second cousin, and his wife, Donna, and his sister-in-law, Ginny, hosted an afternoon get together for any relatives who could make it to what is really a family compound, although one on which the […]

Last Saturday, I began getting sick, which has not happened to me in several years. It was just a cold, and just a viral one at that, but you know how you get with a cold, you feel like warmed-over shit and like you are about to die. I feel more like I am about […]

What is productivity? Productivity expectations seem to be ever-increasing, so it would be helpful to know exactly what it is. I think it means having a very long to-do list and getting everything on it done, thus having no to-do list, and the page would need to be empty for maybe three days before another […]

This will not be posted till tomorrow because the internet in our house and the landline phone are not working. Verizon peops will be coming here tomorrow between 1 and 5 and thank God workers will be here to let them in, etc. The workers already know and will handle it for us, which is […]

Yesterday, I announced to my family – tentatively – that i might consider trying the half marathon again this spring. Today, I changed my mind. Because today, in the midst of running this year’s 10 K portion of Pittsburgh’s The Great Race, I was really struggling to get myself through it, and as races go, […]

Very relieved this afternoon! I completed my first ever article review for a medical journal, and before the stated deadline! After being asked and then agreeing to do the review, I wondered just what kind of hot mess i had gotten myself into, but then methodically went thru all the steps, with online guidance from […]

I have been so stressed out lately that i discovered only today, on my way downtown with Barb Penner, where we were scheduled to give two presentations back to back on developing new habits, that a talk I thought i was supposed to give this afternoon (at a different location for another purpose) which is […]

Set Point

Would a movie called “Set Point” garner as much interest as “Match Point” did? Probably, if Woody Allen were the director. Although he has long ago fallen from his pedestal along with from grace as far as I am concerned. No longer have I felt compelled to run out to see his latest movie, nor […]
