Santorum utters the beginning of the "N" word; now can he go away?

Santorum utters the beginning of the "N" word; now can he go away?
I’ve said before that I am not very good at writing about politics. Yet, somehow I don’t believe it requires a Harvard law degree to know that there is a time when a candidate should throw in the towel. Today I believe it is time for Rick Santorum to wave the white flag, or towel... Read more »

Protect your children, it's your most important job

Protect your children, it's your most important job
Yesterday on two separate occasions I came to my computer and saw headlines regarding children that have died as a result of poor decisions made by parents and relatives. Through blogging for Chicagonow I have met people that have lost their children to illness. Those families did everything humanly possible to protect and save those... Read more »

Tommy Hilfiger, even you can't save this season of American Idol

Tommy Hilfiger, even you can't save this season of American Idol
Apparently I have been living under a mat for the past few weeks. Back in early March I somehow missed the announcement that fashion icon Tommy Hilfiger was to become a style mentor on American Idol. Really? Hasn’t the show gotten bad enough with adding this completely unnecessary time filler? In it’s early seasons Idol... Read more »

Negative campaigning: Let the mudslinging begin

Negative campaigning: Let the mudslinging begin
Begin? It’s already started. Lately I have gotten in the habit of listening to news radio when I travel, which is a lot. Now I think that habit is going to have to be broken as I got an earful from the Santorum campaign today: “”Ok. A Liberal, a Moderate and a Conservative walk into... Read more »

Kansas v Purdue: What a way to end a game!

Kansas v Purdue: What a way to end a game!
Well, first I’d like to say that I am now calmed down and able to type. My hands have stopped shaking enough to write. I’m still sweating, dripping actually as this was a game that was so lost I’m still in shock from the win. I am not a sports writer by any stretch. But when... Read more »

Lauren Spierer, will you ever be found?

Lauren Spierer, will you ever be found?
It has now been 286 days since Indiana University student Lauren Spierer went missing. I had written about it several times last June when it first happened and certainly hoped and expected the case would be solved by now. Sadly, there has been no new information, clues or otherwise that would lead her family closer... Read more »

Am I ugly? Why are young girls asking this on Youtube?

Am I ugly? Why are young girls asking this on Youtube?
When I was in 7th grade (1969/70) there was a trend in our school that us “ugly girls” didn’t like. There was a notebook called a “Slambook” and each page represented a person in the grade. So for instance, my name would be at the top of a page. A person’s opinion of me was... Read more »

Raising your kids after you've raised them.

 Raising your kids after you've raised them.
21 year old daughter (calling me from a friends cell phone): Mom I lost my phone. I’ve looked everywhere and can’t find it. Me: Did you try “Find my I Phone? (Amazing app you can stalk your kids with) Daughter: Oh yeah, great idea. And oh, I also think my purse was stolen. Me: Are... Read more »

Dear Macbook Pro, happy anniversary!

Dear Macbook Pro, happy anniversary!
Dear Mac, What a first year we have had together. It’s been nothing short of amazing and so much more fulfilling than any other relationship I’ve had. The fact that we have gone a whole year without an argument, a tiff or me ever wanting to throw you through a window has been nothing short... Read more »
