“Beauty Hurts”……

This morning I was getting dressed for my Zumba class stressing about my hair getting in the way heavy with sweat.  My daughter Amelia offered to tie it back with a bandanna and when doing so, pulled my hair. "Ouch", I said. "Beauty Hurts",  she said and I began to think. I was in Manhattan this past week visiting clients with two male colleagues.  These two gentlemen are professional in every sense of the word.  The dress professionally and carry…

Bow your head for Tessio

On Sunday morning, we had a death in the family. Jack's fish Tessio was found on the kitchen counter...he jumped to his death. I went to feed the fish, as I do every morning after walking Izzy. We named our fish after the characters in The Godfather.

LAX, SUV’s and Fifty Shades

It is 5:45 and the sky is black.  Secretly I am hoping for a massive thunderstorm so no LAX practice and Yes Zumba with Laurie......not so lucky.  Practice is on and I grab my Kindle, my LAXer and off we go. Jack jumps out of the car happy to be in the rain.  I get a wave and off he goes.....leaving me to the 70's on 7 and my Fifty Shades Trilogy. I have made a few references over the…
