Something is definitely wrong when all the news is about a young teenage girl who had photographs taken showing less skin than most girls her age show on the beach! Annie Leibovitz’s photos of Miley Cyrus for Vanity Fair are beautiful. I see no reason for Miley to even apologize! Yes, young girls look up […]

Okay, so Marie-Antoinette didn’t say, “Let them eat cake.” when the people of France were on the verge of starvation and at the eve of a French Revolution, but Nicolas Sarkozy did say if you can’t afford to fill up your gas tank, then “ride a bike!” With inflation increasing in France, tax blunders costing billions, […]

How do we justify the fact that Carly Smithson was eliminated from American Idol, while Brooke White and Jason Castro are still in the running? Simple! Most of these reality shows have nothing to do with talent, but more to do with a popularity contest! As far as talent goes, Carly was by far the […]

Danielle Crittenden over at The Huffington Post wrote “How To Lie About Your Age“. She brings up an important question that I have thought about for years.

I mentioned the Cour Saint-Pierre in my post The Pope, The Dalai Lama, and Me! It was the only time I had lived outside of the 6th arrondissement of Paris. The Cour Saint-Pierre is a little passageway in the 17e and it was like living in a tiny village in France.
Everyone who moved into this little […]

As I was clearing out some papers yesterday, I found this dumb blonde joke that I found kind of funny, so I thought I would share it.
A blonde is sitting in a 1st class seat for a flight to LA when the flight attendant asks to see her ticket.

I wrote the other day that as an Independent voter, I may just go ahead and write Oprah’s name down for President for the simple reason that I just don’t care for any of the candidates running. Well several friends asked me if I would really do it!

Why does a blog that has only been in the blogosphere for a few months get millions of visitors coming to its site, and a book deal to boot, while other blogs that have been around for years (and are just as good, if not better), hardly get any traffic at all? If you ask me, it’s […]
