A NEW STRATEGY FOR LIFE – Marilyn Armstrong

The strategy and rhythm of life are different between your working years and retirement. Garry reminded me that he's busy. By this he means he's reading two books -- one audio, the other print.

WHERE’S MY SHIP? By Marilyn Armstrong

I was out in Arizona talking to a Blue Corn Navajo lady who made jewelry. She had carefully given me her tribal affiliations and all I had to say was "Eastern European Jewish," which lacked panache.

It was (really) complicated. I had finally managed to get unmarried to number two which was made a lot more difficult because I … Continue reading IF YOU SURVIVE THE WEDDING, MARRIAGE IS A PIECE OF CAKE – Marilyn Armstrong

WOULD YOU PLEASE ANSWER THAT PHONE? – BY ELLIN CURLEY

The world can be divided in many ways – Republicans vs. Democrats, religious people vs. non religious people, cat people vs. dog people. Here’s another way – people who love the phone vs. people who hate it. I love talking on the phone. I have many close friends who live far away now and it’s … Continue reading WOULD YOU PLEASE ANSWER THAT PHONE? – BY ELLIN CURLEY
