Homemade Wrapping Paper

November 5th, 2015

With Christmas coming you may be feeling penurious.  Sure, you have gifts to lavish, charities to support, soirees to plan.  One thing I always forget to budget for is wrapping paper.  And then, days before Santa’s polar sojourn, I find myself languishing in retail hell, at a big box store, paying way too much for wrapping paper.  Santa, I tried to be a good girl in the budget department.  I really tried.  No more withering away in the Christmas aisle to find bargain (lackluster) holiday paper.  I am planning ahead by making my own.  Here’s a few ideas.  You can buy plain white or brown paper in bulk from Ikea or the butcher.

Tennessee has more to offer than country music.  Sure, it’s famed for the Grand Ole Opry.  Just as there’s more than 10 state songs, there’s dizzying array of attractions packed into this powerhouse of state-and they don’t even boast a coastline.  Let’s waltz around Tennessee in some great shoes. You don’t have to board a plane to Greece to visit the Parthenon.  Just jaunt to Nashville.  An exact replica of its Greek forerunner, Nashville’s houses the largest indoor sculpture in the world, the towering Olympian Athena, patroness of wisdom and war.  Visit Nashville, the Athens of the South, in shoes fit for a goddess.

Choose Wisely

November 3rd, 2015

A special relative of mine is becoming an octogenarian this month.  And although she remains very young at heart, determining the appropriate offering to commemorate the occasion was puzzling and elusive. What the heck do you get an individual who has experienced eight decades of living?  After much angst, I decided on fresh flowers….the perfect present that, when delivered, deposits a smile on every woman’s face (unless it is from an unwelcomed lover). My aunt loves roses, but when I proceeded to order these delicate blooms, I was confronted and I faced a conundrum.

November Novelties at Verizon Wireless

November 3rd, 2015

The clock strikes midnight on October 31st, and I’m ready to blare the holiday tunes, roll out a pie crust, and start checking off items on my Christmas gift list! Yep, I’m one of those people. The holiday season can’t come soon enough in my book. I’ll admit, though, being a Midwestern transplant on the West Coast, this year has left me more “seasonally confused” than other years. The kickoff of November generally conjures up images of roaring fireplaces and turtlenecks, but this year the temperature gage was pushing 90 degrees when good ol’ month #11 showed its face.

Teens Vs. Parents

Anne Middleton
November 2nd, 2015

In our current technological environment and insane attachment to all things electronic, could you ever imagine an awkward, pimply-faced teen growing up and avoiding the Internet and online communications? Preposterous! But for every parent who has ever pondered the question, “what the heck was my teenager thinking when they posted risky information or pictures on social media,” a team of researchers from Penn State advocates the hypothesis that these kids “were not really thinking at all, or at least were not thinking like adults do.

And ten years ago nobody envisioned angst regarding their data being hacked and abused by malicious individuals with evil on their mind.
