I had an interesting conversation with my friend Carole the other day. Now Carole is one of the most positive people I know so I was surprised when she said that she really disliked fall. According to her, “Everything dies and it gets really dark.” Me, on the other hand, I just love fall. It […]

Normally, Quincy Massachusetts is not the place for adventures. Other than it being the birthplace of John Quincy Adams and home to the old Fore River Shipyard, there is nothing much of note there. I did live there 26 years ago when I first moved back from New York City. Mr. Ken and I had […]

This is my favorite slogan. It can apply to so many things in life, from exercising to facing unpleasant tasks. It’s funny since it is so easy for me to apply this to my exercise. I’m really good at making myself exercise, even if I don’t feel like it. I know that I will feel […]
