When I was a kid, every Christmas morning my parents would be in a mad scramble trying to find batteries for all of our toys. Without fail, they would forget to buy batteries.
And, now, as an adult, not a whole lot has changed over the years with the exception of our toys. More and more, electronics have found their way into our lives and between two smartphones, two tablets, a Kindle Fire, and even [...]
Twenty-four years ago, when I married my first husband, my mother bought us a, what was then, top-of-the-line stainless steel cookware set. I remember being shocked that she would spend $200 on pots and pans, but she told me if I bought quality cookware they would be cheaper in the long run, because I wouldn’t have to replace them. I didn’t know if that was true or not, but I was thrilled [...]
As I mentioned in my review of the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, I’m a big fan of SUV’s, particularly my Ford Explorer. I also told you how I sold my Explorer to my sister then went to her crying like an idiot asking for it back. Of course, I gave her money back but I still felt horrible for not following through with our deal. But, I just couldn’t get rid of my Explorer.

But, obsession aside, I’ve noticed something about myself over the last few years. Like most people, I suppose, the older I’ve gotten the more I’ve become [...]
I’m a huge fan of SUV’s. I know that’s not a popular statement in today’s “green” world, what with greenhouse gasses and carbon offsets, but it’s true. I bought my ’99 4WD, Eddie Bauer Edition Explorer brand spanking new and, fourteen years later, I’d still drive it across country.
When I bought a new car in 2007, I couldn’t bear the thought [...]
I read an article last month on MarketWatch that said 60% of people between the ages of 50-64 are using social media such as Facebook, and 43% of people 65 and over are using it! That’s huge.
Although, at 43, I don’t fall into either of those categories, social media is very important to me. Particularly now that I’m blogging.
But even before I was blogging, I was on FB and Myspace, [...]
