Who had more fun, Betty Crocker or Orville Redenbacher?

tuesday

Is it a gender difference, or is just me? Are all men able to make leisure a higher priority than women when it comes to our free time? When Danny became Reagan’s primary caregiver, truthfully, it was at first with some jealousy that eventually grew into appreciation that I noticed he was able to carve […]

While listening to Jon and Kate Gosselin say over and over again in last night’s TLC one-hour special episode of “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” that they were both “thinking of the kids,” while choosing the divorce route, not once did I hear mentioned that they had been to counseling. “We’re doing what’s best for […]

Can a Makeover Change the Course of Your Life?

I have always loved watching makeover shows on TV and will even pause and rewind to see the amazing transformations over and over again. The results are often shocking.
