April 16, 2014Warmth
Radio personalities aren't suppose to get laryngitis... Tell that to the cold that decided to land in my throat, making me sound like Brenda Vacarro or Rachael Ray (it depends on which end of the era you swing). I think I got this cold while flying back to New York from San Francisco. I knew I should have stayed. San Francisco is the best place I have ever lived. The first thing I did after arrival was to drive to Marin, park and walk back and forth across the Golden Gate Bridge. Sounds touristy? Tell that to my skin that soaked up all the glorious sun, or to my teenager whose only recollection of this bridge is a memory from the Sorin' ride at Disneyland. It's amazing what a little sunshine can do for you. I lost track of the amount of friends who have verbally stated their lack of energy due to the nasty winter weather. Maybe not so much on the West coast, but still this nation is beyond ready for some consistent nice weather. Every time we crack the mic there's an opportunity to spread some sun her way sans the sunscreen, but if you want to use it that's okay, there are ultraviolet rays even on cloudy days.

The other day I was Face-timing with one of my "celeb" girlfriends. Right after we said hello she showed me where she got her Botox shot; I showed her a scar on my shoulder. She let down her ponytail and fluffed out a ton of hair; I could only ask if it was all real. ...
April 14, 2014Pay Up or Get Back
This is a big night for procrastinators. W2's, EZ forms, deductions and write offs are being considered and discussed right now. Taxes are due to be filed by tomorrow. Not only are there many who will be downloading and trying to figure out the latest edition of Turbo ...
April 11, 2014Quiet
I'm sitting in the karate waiting room alone. There are no moms discussing thyroid issues and what to make for dinner. There are no dads nodding off and no toddlers screaming. Yes, class is happening; there are about 15 kids taking an advanced sword class wearing red ...
April 10, 2014Feed the Photographer
My oldest daughter is a Junior in college double-majoring in Fine Art Photography and Art History, with a minor in Journalism. I can't believe I just wrote almost two sentences about her career path when the day she was born is still so very fresh in my mind. My baby! ...
April 9, 2014Yard work
Gardeners and landscapers are read for their busy season. Hopefully, if she needs yard work done she's already called and made an appointment for a Spring clean-up. Otherwise she might have to wait, because from my experience it's hard to find good help, and the good ...
April 8, 2014Surprise
My girlfriend Gracia called the other day and asked what I was doing. The question should have been what was I not doing! She's a single she who runs a high end design studio in Manhattan. I'm a working mom living on the Jersey side. So, I told her I was making dinner ...

Our winter weather on the East Coast is almost comical; we are cracking up due to the absurdly of having snow in April. There is a street in my neighborhood called 'Snow Ridge' and it's totally lived up to its name. We just had a snow storm that was hear and gone in a ...
April 2, 2014Timing
Capitalizing on the fact that women are busy is not my recommendation. It's pretty mucha given that schedules are crunched, especially during this time of tax season. Talk about added pressure! I'm ﬁnding more women are happier when they can brag aboutthe ...
April 1, 2014Fool
Winter weather is today's April Fool. And it's probably going to be tomorrow's April Fooltoo. Unless you live in Palm Springs where many a Facebook post boasts of their warm temperatures. This years spring break will have a few more ski selﬁes than usual ...
