We do live in an information-based society. Most, or maybe just some, of us, are very careful about what we share online. But it’s funny how we react to things. A dear friend and I went to a financial seminar the other night. The topic was, “Managing your Retirment,” which is something we all need […]

So I recently celebrated a birthday. Never mind which one. . . Mr. Ken says to me, “How about we celebrate your birthday by going to a talk on owls? There will even be live owls there!” Um, okay. I’m really not a bird person, chipmunks yes, but not birds. I was a bit apprehensive […]

Hello again. It’s time for the second installment of our London adventures. I know you all can’t wait. 🙂 1. Mind the gap. I just love the English accents! Of course, the English would say that we Americans have the accent, not them. I swear, I could listen to someone reading the phone book with […]
