The Break-Up

The Break-Up

Not So Ninja

Not So Ninja

  My home has been overrun with ninjas. Not the mercenary type…..kitchen appliances!   Ninja has become the new nameplate of kitchen gadgetry and more. Maker of the popular air fryer (we have), coffee makers, food processors, blenders (we have), toaster ovens, cookers, just about anything you can think of—Ninja makes it. Well, sort of. …

Button Holed

Button Holed

  So many of my shirts come with extra buttons–but I’m not sure why.  I have never used any of them.  They are always just there.  Hanging around.  Riding the coattails (shirttails, in this case).  Patiently waiting for their big break.  Their opportunity to show what they can do.  They are like a fastener under-study.    The kid …

A Big Red Bow

A Big Red Bow

    Putting a big red bow on a gift carries significant meaning. A big red bow says this is it!  The top gift!  None better!  What you always wanted!  A show stopper! That’s why you don’t put a big red bow on dish towels, socks or underwear.     A big red bow belongs …

Driving Me (Christmas) Crazy

Driving Me (Christmas) Crazy

  I just don’t get it. I worked in advertising, media, marketing for over twenty years and I still don’t understand. During the holiday season car companies seem to come out by the fleet-load to sell product. You can’t watch television for ten minutes without a car commercial for Chevy, Ford, Kia, Toyota, Mercedes Benz, …

Rejected Instant Lottery Names

Rejected Instant Lottery Names

  Instant lottery games, or ‘scratch-offs,’ are always brightly-colored tickets with cute, catchy names.
