Okay well….it’s been a little while…but I haven’t forgotten you or this blog. I swear! I’ve thought of it often and have wanted to write but I am almost completely enthralled with my two girls and find it hard to tear myself away for anything and truly it’s hard to find things more interesting than [...]

We are well into our second week of our American sojourn in the Big-D and as part of my total vacation -assimilation plan (I’ve also taken to applying several more coats of mascara and using “y’all” as part of my general lexicon) I’ve chosen another Brooklyn-based book author/illustrator to celebrate (there really does seem to [...]

I’m a lucky person in many ways. One of the areas I am truly blessed is in my family. I have a large extended family (and super in-laws) and it’s a nice feeling. Another great part of my family is that there are a lot of women. I have a number of aunts who I [...]

The day before last I finally completed the 2011 Census and I think it was the short form for all of those who remember the hoopla of the long versus short form. Anyway it’s really easy and you can do it online. Right after I was asked to participate in another voluntary household survey and [...]
