Due to Cameron's parliamentary majority and the disunity of the opposition, the Conservative approach of British military escalation in Syria will likely be implemented. But the impact of these military activities is unclear.
By now many of you have likely read "Why Students Hate School Lunches," by Kate Murphy in this week's New York Times Sunday Review. Here's my one word reaction to the piece: GAH!!!!
Imad Mughniyah, Chief of Hezbollah International Operations, was one of the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorists and was sought by authorities in 42 other countries.
In all the years I've been drinking wine, I'm always happy when someone serves me a dry white Bordeaux. But until now I've rarely bought or ordered ...
When all is said and done, what the recently-approved Iran nuclear agreement is all about is ensuring that Iran honors its commitment under the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) not to develop nuclear weapons.
Let me tell you a funny story - not funny as in ha ha lol, but hilarious in happenstances and implications. Last week in Paris, on the day-before-last of my stay there before flying to the States, I broke my big left toe with the heavy metal and glass door of my Parisian building.

The genie cannot be put back in the bottle and wars cannot "unhappen". Yet besides the humanitarian help which decency dictates should be offered to refugees, the resort to diplomacy instead of war would also help millions of people now fleeing their countries and trying to make a new life elsewhere.
When we're finally ready to flip the switch to retirement, my husband and I intend to settle in Paris. For us, this city is as good as it gets and the world's best option for retirement living.

As I raised my glass for a sip, the effervescence of the bubbly tickled my nose, just as I imagined it would have done to monk Dom Perignon had he discovered that his blended grapes made such a fuss.
Two exhibits of my work, Oil and Water and Re/Viewing the American Landscape are currently on view at Blue Water Fine Arts in Port Clyde, Maine. I've been spending summers painting in Maine for close to forty years and exhibiting there for over thirty.
I believe two of the litmus tests by which we can judge any society are to investigate both the ways in which societies treat their children, and the ways in which they treat animals.
