  • “Life is a highway and I’m going to drive it!”
    I used to say “Life is a highway and I’m going to drive it!” I might just take the train after this last 18 months. Less dangerous and more comfortable! It seems like we are back to some sort of normality but just still need to be careful. I have been to Somerset, Hastings and […]

  • Rain rain go away
    Starting a marketing email is always difficult. Do you hit them with a strong statement to attract attention? Breaking News perhaps? I needed inspiration today and there it was staring at me on the TV….Boris’ hair. It’s the new pancake umbrella look, a graduated weight line above the ears falling from a double pancake crown. […]
  • Refreshingly different
    Refreshing, that’s le mot du jour… Refreshing to be finally warmer.. Refreshing to be nearly out of this pandemic, fingers, legs, and arms crossed.  Refreshing to be able to meet up family and friends and very very refreshing is my secret kiwi summer watermelon salad. This is a show stopper, that looks and tastes great. […]

  • HEELS, WIGS AND LONG LEGS
    Well that was a week (out of many), to forget! Colder than the corner of 23rd and 9th Avenue on a bitterly icy cold day in New York. That is but a memory. I didn’t get to go outside, at all, after doing a spectacular death drop in the street 10 days ago! Thank you […]
