Here is where we'll share whatever catches our fancy, as long as we think you will find it informative or entertaining.

I recently interviewed an interventional cardiologist for a Bucks County Magazine health story.  As a public service, I wanted to share his thoughts on diet and exercise. 

The doctor believes in the Mediterranean diet: 

  • High quantities of vegetables, such as tom...

Certain single-frame images from my life have stuck with me through the years. Here are a few: 

1963: My mother, sitting on the couch with her hand at her throat, watching the coverage of the Kennedy assassination. 

1975: Seeing my future husband for the first time; he w...

I shared my first betrayal in a previous post; that betrayal being a very mean neighborhood boy convincing my 4-year-old self that because I was little, I should choose the tiniest grape from the bunch that he was offering. Of course, the grape was horribly tart and th...

We all have these! Here are a few of mine: 

  • Sure, one more vodka gimlet sounds good.

He has an ongoing dilemma when ordering this drink with bartenders he does...

Certain sentences, some said to me and others said in my presence, have stuck with me verbatim throughout the years. I had so much fun with Part 1 (and received some great shared remembrances from friends) that it's already time for Part 2: 

"This one really likes to sw...

Certain sentences, some said to me and others said in my presence, have stuck with me verbatim throughout the years. Here's a sampling: 

"I'll be on my last legs by then." --My father in 1965, when we were talking about the year 2000. Happily, he lived until December 20...

I don't think about etiquette much, but I've had occasion to a couple of times recently.

The first was at a bar where my husband Rob and I are regulars. It was crowded, and the only seats were in the corner. We didn't want to be jammed against the wall, so we left one s...

It was the summer of 1959. I was barely 4. A bunch of neighborhood kids were congregated on the pavement that separated my parents' twin home in Northeast Philadelphia from the one next door. 

If the circle around the photo of our house were a clock, the betrayal took p...
