It is almost time to do one thing I’ve dreaded doing for many years. I have to have my annual smashogram a.k.a. mammogram. Ladies, yes, the process of flattening of two body parts that were never meant to do so between almost always cold vise plates is undeniably painful. I, for one, believe the...

While I realize the terrible disaster in Japan is on everyone's mind, I recently suffered a personal disaster...and survived. Perhaps you noticed my absence from social networking the past year or so. I took a year off writing (and everything else in my life) when I was diagnosed with breast...

Please support me as I take an amazing journey in the fight to end breast cancer! The Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure is a 60-mile walk over the course of three days. Net proceeds from the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure are invested in breast cancer research and community programs.

Sexy! Carmelina Vargas is definitely that and more as she sings and sways in her music video Love: “Turn off the lights. Take off our clothes. The rest is for no one to know… The 20 something-year-old Latina is an enchantress. It doesn’t seem as though she’d have any reason to be uncomfortable in...

I haven't blogged in a really long time.  Since the art show closed, there hasn't been much going on.  I keep waiting for something to happen, but despite my best efforts, that doesn't seem likely any time soon.  So I just keep waiting... I did manage to finish the revision of Jet Lag and Other...
