Family Coffee Talk

For those of you who have read my blog, you know I consider Fridays “Foodless” and I talk about any of the other wonderful things out there that make me who I am. You may have noticed that I have also been a bit absent so I thank you for sticking with me!  I hope…

Site Updates

Happy #blackfriday!  I hope your Thanksgiving was spent warm and cozy with your family and friends.  As you can see I have made a few design changes to my site.  Fall cleaning, if you will.  I have also added a new page; Remember These? where I showcase long-gone treats of youth.  I have also updated…

Honk If You Had One

You know what’s the best and worst thing about the Internet?  The way that one search turns into another than another like a domino effect until you aren’t even sure how you got to where you end up. Today after an enjoyable and laughable must-click video of the endearing Swedish Chef (of Muppets fame) on…

Howard, More than Just a Fish…

Born Hunter, Howard G. Fish, changed his name later in life, deciding that it suited him more. He was a full-fledged New Yorker from his wispy tail to his furrowed brow. He lived his entire life on the island of Manhattan, a rarity nowadays. Howard was born in Union Square before finding a home with…

Fashion or Trashin’?

This morning I was walking down the street on my way to my office and I saw this outfit on display in a semi-upscale very common clothing store. I spotted it and chuckled at how crazy it looked.  And I thought who in their right mind would wear a giant fur stole like that over…

No, Don’t Come On Irene…

What a week it’s been for me and my fellow East Coasters.  Tuesday, as my desk was rattling and the lights started  I quickly saved the document I was working on, grabbed my purse and hauled ass down 20 floors to the bright and sunny street below.  Yes, you aren’t supposed to leave a building…

It’s (Un)Officially Summer!

Happy Friday!!  Woohoo, it’s the weekend and for me (any maybe some of you) it’s also a short work day.  Can’t wait to enjoy the very Summer-like weather outside today before I pack and head back to PA for a family-fun weekend.  A big shout out to the greatest guy in my life, my Dad,…

Mom, thank you for being a friend

Happy Foodless Friday!  Some weeks, trying to decide what to fill this space with will elude me.  But this week I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  As every greeting card store, flower shop and jewelry store has reminder us, Sunday in Mother’s Day.  But the biggest arrangement or most poetic card never seems…

It’s Friday! Bon Voyage!

Hello readers!  What a happy Friday today is!  Why the bon voyage?  I am headed out to England tonight!  This will not be my first trip across the pond, but it will be my first to the UK.  I will be visiting London, and various locations in the southeast portion of the country.  Blogging from…

April, Fool me one more time and it’s over…

Well, here we are…April. By the looks of things, we should be watching out for a blizzard in July. I do have one request: Mother Nature, please take a vacation!. I think you are a little stressed out. Hmmm. Anyway, April has always been one of my favorite months. It starts off funny. I love jokes,…

Livin’ On a Prayer

Happy Friday!   I love Foodless Fridays and do you know why?  Because it means the weekend is finally here.  Don’t get me wrong I love my job, but my laundry basket isn’t going to walk itself to the wash n’fold.  Anywho, so today’s post is from something that happened last weekend.  I’m so giddy…

My Favorite Pen

Let me tell you a little secret. I love office supplies. I get excited by sharp pencils, new white out and a medium point black pen. I also love board games. So imagine my delight when I came across a pen that was both fun and functional! How cute is this thing? It gets a…
