“What’s your prequel Heather?” I am sure you have heard of “do overs” and how we rarely ever get one in life. We may often regret our actions and perhaps as a result we may learn from our mistakes, changing for the better. At times we may just […]
I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine! A social marketing expert and psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all.
All the world is my television and I like to provide commentary on it.
An apple a day can keep the doctor away? Who hasn’t heard that piece of advice before? Supposedly such sage advice came into vogue back in 1866 originally as a Pembrokeshire proverb that stated: “Eat an apple on going to bed, And you’ll keep the doctor from earning […]
“Isn’t it appropriate that the month of the tax begins with April Fool’s Day and ends with cries of “May Day!”?” I just got back from Italy, having spent nine full days there gorging myself on carbs, wine and amaretto. Upon arriving home, I looked out my back […]

Growing up in the South Bronx, my favorite catholic celebration was Easter Sunday. It’s not like we would go on an Easter egg hunt through the crack houses or anything like that. I actually never participated in an Easter egg hunt until two years ago when my baby […]
Don’t know why, but the flight out to Rome just seemed to take forever and ever. Couple that feeling with a slew of airport mix-ups (stroller lost; driver gave up; phone just wouldn’t work) that by the time we reached our hotel we were beat. But of course, […]
It is 8:24 am. Three cups of coffee, two coke zeros and one bag of gummies and I am still tired. And I have six meetings to look forward to throughout the day. That is, six meetings that I know of. Who knows how many countless unexpected crazy […]
