The Surrender of America

The Surrender of America

The greatest country that ever existed in the history of humanity is no more. Indeed, the Founding Fathers of this once divinely favored land would be rolling over in their graves if they could know what has become of the United States of America. It can be argued that the elected officials who have been […]

Bad Bosses Teach How to Be a Good One

Bad Bosses Teach How to Be a Good One

There have been several examples of bad bosses on television in recent years, from Michael Scott on The Office to Selina Meyer on VEEP to Montgomery Burns on The Simpsons to Jack Donaghy on 30 Rock. There have certainly been a lot of horrible bosses in my life. But bad bosses (like good ones) can […]

Some Truths Behind Childhood Vaccination

Some Truths Behind Childhood Vaccination

To understand the importance of vaccinations, a person can either time travel to the 1920s, or visit India. After decades of national work, India was finally able to eliminate polio finally in 2014. Sitting on a first world couch, many people don’t realize how protected their life is and they never understand the alternatives. Often […]

Limited Stores Scandal Collection Lets Women Emulate Olivia Pope

Limited Stores Scandal Collection Lets Women Emulate Olivia Pope

Whether a fan of Scandal or not, it would be hard not for most women to admit that Olivia Pope’s wardrobe is amazing. Okay maybe I could do without Pope’s gloves, but the wardrobe helps create the Gladiators’ personas. I am realistic that I cannot afford the Tory Burch coat or Vera Wang ball gown, […]

9/11 Anniversary Too Distant for Those Born in 1999

9/11 Anniversary Too Distant for Those Born in 1999

I remember, as much of the rest of the world does, the horror that occurred September 11, 2001.  9/11 is a day that will not – and should not – be forgotten, as it truly marked an occasion where those of us in North America fully realized that we are targets of the terrorists.  However, […]

Prince Harry Coming Into His Own

Prince Harry Coming Into His Own

Diana would be proud. Prince Harry frequently makes headlines for his party boy image and for the occasional nude photo that might surface.  However, with the debut of the Invictus Games, Prince William’s younger brother has shown that he has the maturity and the wisdom that many wished he would finally grow into.  By creating […]

E-cigarettes May Go up in Smoke

E-cigarettes May Go up in Smoke

  Maybe it is a good thing e-cigarettes haven’t always been around. A popular country song in America includes these lines: “I’d smoked my mind the night before With cigarettes and the songs I’d been pickin’ But I lit my first and watched a small kid Playin’ with a can that he was kicking.” ~~ […]

Watch Your Mouth! Why Mouth Guards Are Critical

Watch Your Mouth!  Why Mouth Guards Are Critical

I have two young girls who are karate kids.  One went through an arduous 14-hour test with her peers and adults and became a black belt this year while the other is a green belt.  Both spar on a regular basis.  I am lucky enough to help out with one of the karate classes a […]

Black Tie Optional Not Taste Optional

Black Tie Optional Not Taste Optional

The invitation said “black tie optional” awards gala. It was a business event – the highlight of a summertime multi-day conference with hours to get glammed up built into the schedule. I envisioned dapper dudes in tuxedos and fashionable women in sparkly cocktail attire, kind of like the fancy dress night on a cruise. What […]

Can We Talk?  Joan Rivers Dies at 81

Joan Rivers has died at 81, and today’s generation will likely remember the tart-tongued comedienne for her often acidic commentary on red carpet fashion.  I am a part of the in between generation – the ones that know she was a frequent guest host on The Tonight Show in the Johnny Carson days but never […]
