I just recently readopted my olive oil tree – the one I adopted in Italy over three years ago. I love the oil from Piantone di Mogliano olives! I had no idea olive oil came in so many varieties of strengths and flavors. I didn’t know that the crapola sold on most grocery store..

One of the most beautiful songs ever is the theme from the 1980 film, Somewhere in Time. Many of you may remember it – Christopher Reeves plays Richard Collier, a playwright who becomes smitten by a photograph of a young woman at the Grand Hotel. Through self-hypnosis, he travels back in time to the year 1912 to find..
One of my favorite songs is “What Are You Doing The Rest of Your Life?” The lyrics are written by Alan Bergman and Marilyn Bergman and original music written by Michel Legrand for the 1969 film The Happy Ending.

So… a Father’s Day blog about Alpha Hubby. Alpha Son has been out of the house a few years now. We see him often enough to enjoy him (and his beautiful wife) but the paradigm has shifted. Now it’s a “fun, fun, fun ’til her daddy takes the T-bird awaaaaaay nekkid house!!” Sorry. Now Alpha Hubby..
(This is a post from 2013) Next year (2014), Alpha Hubby and I will be married 20 years. T-W-E-N-T-Y years. I know that may not seem like a long time to those of you who have been married longer, but trust me when I say it is a joyous miracle for Alpha Hubby and me. So sweet…
