Dead Ahead

January 25, 2013

We all know that there are two inevitable things that are guaranteed in life: Death and Taxes.

So why is it that everyone prepares for their taxes every single year of their lives, but they do not prepare for death?  

The word "death" alone is terrifying to some. Saying the word "death" or even thinking about death conjures up fear and unsettling  thoughts and feelings.

Got Wine?

January 11, 2013

Honestly, if you have any fabulous, expensive, special bottles of wine saved and stored in your basement in cartons or on wine storage racks in a special room with temperature controls and you have reached the age of 80, I believe that you should stop saving and start drinking your wonderful collection alone, or share with your friends and family.

What about Fido?

Do you have pets?

If you do, I bet you are crazy about them.  I absolutely love our two dogs Lucy and Nelli.

Lucy is our 14 1/2 year old naughty yellow labrador retriever who spends most of her day thinking about food while snoring on her well loved bed in the laundry room next to the rumbling dryer. She looks longingly at me while I work in the office just a few feet away, with an occassional thumping of her tail to let me know she is still alive and happy.
