We went early this year, and to another location. This time, we drove to Ann Arbor after work last Friday, arriving at Grace and Stu’s at close to midnight.

The models looked ravishing. once again, we held it at The Herberman Conference Center at Shadyside Hospital, which is a perfect venue. The biggest difference this year was that three […]

Most prospective medical students use some version of the hackneyed phrase, “I want to help people” when asked about their career choice. That was definitely one of my reasons, although I was careful to couch it in less banal terms in my application essay. For me, it was more than just wanting to help, though, […]

This is not the same as match point. I have a set point which can go up easily but to get it to go down is very tough and with each passing year, it is tougher and tougher. As you may have guessed, it os all about my weight. Although i have been technically at […]

This is a dreeeeaaammm! I am on vacque in Porchville USA, my fave kind of vacque. In my living room, which looks very nice now that all the kitchen stuff has been put away. Max is home, and at least Woody visited, although he is now back in NY, and Mollie is off gallivanting with […]

Just spent about half an hour composing a post about a quilt I am making for Mollie, and somehow it got deleted. It is gone, gone, gone, like in the song. The long and short of it is that I have made quilts for both boys, both of which I believe are ready for trash […]

Why why why do I love food so much? It is one thing to enjoy food but quite another to not want to stop eating. Ever! I could eat all day and all night long, nonstop. This morning, I decoded not to go to Weight Watchers, before I got on my home scale. My home […]
