Everyone is pretty much the same…

I blog, I tweet, I stumble, I Pin and I Facebook.  I spend hours 'connecting' with the world through my computer.  Friends from yesteryear as well as new ones, the internet has given people an international audience to promote causes, share lives, seek new friendships and reconnect with old ones.  The things I write about have…

Shame on Good Morning America

September is quickly coming to an end and even before the last day of childhood cancer awareness month is over, 'pink' is already being promoted in the media. Magazines, advertisements, television and everywhere I look I am overwhelmed with 'pink'. I understand raising awareness for breast cancer, I don't understand the total lack of support…

I Wrote a Best Seller!

I love to write.  I blog, I tweet and I wrote a book.  I know people read my work, as I can see from my followers, subscribers and those who have purchased my book.  I do not have the notoriety however, to make my book a best seller.  I always thought the toughest part would be writing.  Sitting…

The end of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

The end of September is here and National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is almost over.  Another year passes and more kids are getting sick.  October brings Breast Cancer Awareness month and everything will be pink.  The NFL dedicates itself to it with pink hats, cleats and gloves.   The Empire State building will be flooded with pink lights…

I wrote a book…

I wrote a book.  I guess it is really no major feat nowadays, since everyone including 'Snooki'  and 'JWoww' have written books, in my opinion much about nothing.  I think my book is good and those who have read it tell me so, but my book gets no attention.  I have no morning news shows wanting to…

5k/10k Honey Run

I want to host a fundraiser for the Honeysuckle Foundation for Children with Cancer (www.honeysucklefoundation.org) in September one in South Carolina and one on Long Island.   I already know the month since it is national childhood cancer awareness month, a little known fact in this country, but I am not sure how to get started. …

Heroism

The tragedy in Arizona is all over the news. We have been inundated with media reporting any and all aspects of it and the heroism many exhibited during this time.  I am happy for these stories of courage, but I also feel we should remember those who are heroic each and everyday of their lives. …

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is here and another year is almost over.  As we  prepare to spend time with family and friends eating and drinking too much and making new memories, we should remember what Thanksgiving is all about; giving thanks.  I always try to spend some time reflecting upon the prior year and remembering all the things…

Lauren turned 21!!!!!!

My eldest daughter Lauren just turned 21 years old on November 9th.  It is hard to imagine where the time has gone, but I believe most parents feel the same way.  It seems like only yesterday our children were born then, what seems like a second later, they are adults.  I am proud of my daughter.  She…
