Back To School,
Teens Watching Too Much Tv,
A mother walks into the living room where her pre-teen daughter sprawled on the couch, glued to the TV. Mom is carrying a newly purchased backpack, and states smugly, "She spent the summer binge-watching. Soon she'll be binge-studying." Why do I hate this commercial? Let me count the ways.
"Most people focus on the 70 percent they will keep, not the spending they will give up. They aren't prepared for the changes that will be required in their lifestyles. When they eventually are confronted by the specifics they have to cut, they are unhappy."

Teacher: Let's say that you're a high-school senior intent on going to college, but you learn from your doctor that you have only six months to live. [Pause] Four questions: How would you spend these last six months of your life? What would you do differently? What would no longer...
"How many people say, 'I have a dream to own a bar?'" asks Patrick, owner of the Irish bar that bears his name. "Well, I actually did it." Patrick, now 53, bought the bar in 2007 as a way to plan for his retirement. He has since transformed it into one of the most popular expat hangouts in the city.
A Secretary-General prepared to integrate a response to the risk posed by climate change across the UN will have the best chance at delivering peace during these turbulent times.

Iran Constitution's article 146 stipulates "The establishment of any kind of foreign military base in Iran, even for peaceful purposes, is forbidden." Nevertheless, Iranian leaders appear to have violated this crucial article. No foreign power has used Iran's soil and territories as a base for military operations since...
I remember the words of Nixon's chief Domestic Advisor, John Ehrlichman, at the Safford Penitentiary in Arizona. Asked about the man he had faithfully served in the White House for five years, Ehrlichman replied: "I really never got to know him." Who today can truthfully say they know the real Donald Trump?

If you think its difficult Keeping Up with the Kardashians, try doing so with GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump. This guy is a hideous Kaleidoscope of continuous revolving and revolting ugliness. The latest installment in this stomach-turning sight is the shocking self-promoting Tweet the narcissistic Trump posted today...

It's always relaxing to take a stroll through your average amusement park. You ride the rides when you want, and get to enjoy the park as an average, every day guest. But what happens when that's not enough? What happens when you (dare I say it!) get bored? And that...
In the midst of his first campaign for president, Barack Obama was forced to explain his long association with a pastor spotlighted for racially incendiary remarks from the pulpit of an African American church in Chicago.
The new film Southside With You, now in theaters, presents a novel twist on the tried-and-true "date movie" genre by presenting a fictionalized account of the first date between Barack and Michelle Obama as imagined by writer/director Richard Tanne. Long before entering the White House for two terms was even...

After ten sessions I can honestly say that I am glad that I tried Myofascial Release - I can feel my body moving differently when I walk, run, ride my bike or practice yoga and there is much less discomfort in my legs.
Trump hate. I don't like these feelings. I don't want these feelings.
There's a lot of ink these days in the blogosphere about how older women should be able to 'wear whatever the f--- they want.' Well, of course, I applaud the sentiment and the theory. But in practice, for me at least, there are some things in my closet that have outlived their usefulness.
I don't speak Canine. But apparently my 91-year-old mother does. She is closer to her yapping beagle, Chipper, than anyone in the world. She walks him twice a day, cuddles with him on her couch, feeds him from the dinner table and worries about him constantly.
