Zsa Zsa Gabor once said, “I call everyone ‘Darling’ because I can’t remember their name”. More likely she had a paid assistant to remember them for her, so there was little point in wasting those brain cells of hers on storing such pedestrian information. Would that I could […]
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.

My heart just aches at this latest tragedy. One hundred forty four (and counting) injured. Many of the injured will undergo amputations. An eight year old boy dead. It just breaks my heart. Six square blocks cornered off with sneakers and bags left behind. April is a month […]
One of my favorite movies is The Shining. This may result from an inordinate amount of time spent in creepy hotels while traveling for business, often overcome by the urge to scream “Redrum!” as I wait for the elevator in a hotel hall that is a close approximation […]
“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 […]
