Not exactly. Well, I hadn’t intended to take a whole four months off for a summer vacation, but there it is. I did. Lest you think I was traveling the world or hanging around in some quiet resort, I will tell you that my summer started in June with a wedding. My younger daughter got married and I was her official wedding planner. I was relieved when she and her fiancé finally asked for help back in March. Fortunately, she was...

I chose Deep South—I was wrong; it was the Midwest. After conducting some vigorous research (the kind that would lend itself to inserting a...

I’m so angry about constantly dieting that I could “chew nails and spit rust,” to quote my late mother (always one for the pithy cliché). Then you hear about the health benefits of chocolate. Unfortunately, this only...

Now you’re paying attention. I was wondering, just why is chocolate sexy? Why are women usually the only ones pictured eating chocolate in commercials? Why are women sent into almost orgasmic states when they consume it (in commercials, I mean, I don’t recall ever being sexually turned on by chocolate…well, never mind…). Sometimes you’ll see a man in chocolate commercials, but I’ll bet 90% of the...

…or date him or live with him…that’s because chocolate will take care of you in so many ways…at least that’s what television commercials imply.  Some chocolate commercials border on soft porn, don’t you think?  I have abandoned all pretense as to healthy foods, and present you with a decadent mocha tart.  If you hate mocha, all you need to do is omit or decrease the coffee powder; everything else is...
