I've been working more or less non-stop since I was 15. Parenting is by far the toughest job - but it goes by in a flash. Visiting colleges with one's no-longer-little-boy is a jarring reminder. Read on ...

With all the yakking about the Morning TV Wars, some of it invoking my name, it is interesting to note that once again the story line being fed to readers with a familiar breathless tone is Chicks Duke It Out On Morning TV. Some perspective from someone who lived through this some years ago. There is nothing for me to gain by speaking out - except the personal satisfaction of knowing I spoke on behalf of these women when everyone else was silent. Read on ...
Are you a pet lover but someone in your house is allergic? GREAT NEWS: Fido and Fluffy might NOT be the cause of the sneezing! My husband is sometimes allergic .... growing up he never had a dog or cat. Me?

We've seen a spectacular outpouring from the recent deaths of two music icons from two different generations. One wonders if either Whitney Houston or Davy Jones knew the deep affection they enjoyed from thousands of fans. Chances are, if you were a fan, you never got to tell either one of them.

Rick Perry may have torpedoed his presidential hopes with his 53 second 'brown out' during the recent Republican presidential debate. Would a little ESTROGEN have helped?

Ten years after the terror attack on America, we pause to remember what we lost that day. And what we've gained ...
Who needs to visit Disney World? The stock market roller coaster is enough of a wild ride!
As gold hits record highs and fear seems to be winning hearts and minds, wouldn't it be nice to see some leadership -- not press conferences -- come from Washington DC. Perhaps the men and women who serve in Congress might consider skipping their vacation and coming back to DC and working -- not bickering. How about a budget? How about a real deficit reduction plan. Waiting for the Supercommittee until November/December? Imagine how the markets will react in interim if nothing happens?
Business will get back to business when it knows the policies it has to live by won't sabotage its efforts to produce products, provide services, employe people, and -- curse words to some, i know: make a profit!
