Disconnect to Connect: Breaking the Cell Phone Habit

Posted on August 19, 2014 at 3:07pm 0 Comments

You've probably heard about how cell phones are messing with our lives. Tweeting in bed isn't good for your romantic relationship. Reading emails or taking photos in a restaurant can spoil your dining experience. Texting at the table can distance you from family members.

We've all…


Cheers to National Wine Day!

Posted on May 23, 2014 at 11:33am 0 Comments

How could I let National Wine Day—Sunday, May 25—go uncelebrated? Not that I knew there was a National Wine Day or that I think wine needs a special day, because I celebrate  nearly every day with a glass of wine.

On National Wine Day I will, fittingly, be at the river house of my good friends Debra…

Posted on April 25, 2014 at 2:03pm 0 Comments

As I get older, I do get wiser—at least about some things. Travel is one of those. I flew from Norfolk, Virginia, to San Diego, California, yesterday, and I'm feeling good.

Hi Marcia, and thank you for the greeting.  Yes, I joined a few groups and I would also like to start a group of my own.  I tried last night but I was having difficulty loading an image for my group.  Is Ning having technical problems?  I know they're in process of switching to 3.0 and they don't have time to look into problems.  I got frustrated and gave up on starting the group.  I will try again soon, who knows, maybe it will work.

Thanks Marcia. Getting old is real difficult for me at this stage. Gotta work on it.

Its surreal at times. I want to deny deny deny but that doesn't work any more. I have pushed it away too long!

Hope we become good  old pals.

Peace, Viki
