When did P.R. change? Really.  When?   I have always had good working relationships with publicists and still do. But something has begun to happen. I realize that e-mail is a casual form of communication but suddenly, total strangers who are contacting me from p.r. firms are starting...

I have built a new deck.  It is large and covers a third of my yard. The air has been sweet and the six dogs and I like to spend time sniffing the breeze. Summer has not quite landed so the air in lovely.  I have decided the entire world is out enjoying the change in season too.  I write on my...
