It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

Steer Clear of Signs and Steer!

July 30th, 2008 · By Lynn

Katia called her parents and said, “Mom!  Dad!  I almost died!” “Uh, let me explain!” I cried, running to get the other phone so I could do some explaining!  If anyone had read my post Signs, Signs, Everywhere A Sign, then you would know that if I was telling this story to Michelle she would have said, “There […]

Christiane Amanpour’s Poor Choice

July 25th, 2008 · By Lynn

I like Christiane Amanpour and have admired her as a serious news reporter for quite some time.  That said, I find that CNN’s chief international correspondent was vying for tabloid sensationalism when she asked French President Nicolas Sarkozy whether he regretted calling Black and Arab youths rioting in the streets of France a few years […]

Obamania Goes Global!

July 24th, 2008 · By Lynn

As someone who is still sitting on the fence, it’s interesting to watch Barack Obama on his international tour.  Obama is charismatic and is a great speaker; anyone who watched his speech today in Berlin before a crowd of over a hundred thousand people will attest to that.  Obama, none the less, is saying what […]

July 22nd, 2008 · By Lynn

Car racing: the Indy 500, Daytona 500, Le Mans, etc.  The last time I remember hearing anything about car racing was when Andretti won back in 1969!  Yes, I’m talking about Mario Andretti, thank you very much!  Anyway car racing has taken on a whole new interest to women like me, thanks to Danica Patrick […]

Tour de France 2008

July 19th, 2008 · By Lynn

This year’s Tour de France is no different than most of the previous races where controversy reigns over the most famous cycle race in the world.  Once again riders have been sent home for testing positive for doping.  When are these athletes going to learn that taking illegal enhancing drugs will no longer be tolerated?  […]

Where Did The Time Go?

July 17th, 2008 · By Lynn

Last night I painted Katia’s nails turquoise, a color that I wore for more than 30 years!  Yes, I guess you could say I was way ahead of my time!  However, when I turned 50,  and everyone else began to wear blue, green, and purple nail polish, I stopped wearing it.  “Why be like everyone else?” I […]

Signs, Signs,….

July 13th, 2008 · By Lynn

Part Three A week after the “dog incident” we were on the Champs-Elysées after we had climbed to the top of the Arc de Triomphe.  Our plan was to eat pastries and have tea at Ladurée. I mean, where else would we have gone for a lemon tart (which is my favorite), but to Ladurée! […]

July 11th, 2008 · By Lynn

Maya Muses: CNN reported a few days ago that parents of young girls who have taken Gardasil, the vaccination against the papillomavirus, have been calling the FDA complaining and filing lawsuits (close to 8000) because of the side effects of this vaccine on their children’s health. What follows is a post that I wrote last year on […]
