    My heart goes out to everyone in the path of Hurricane Sandy – for the loss and for the physical, mental and emotional toll of the tedious clean up, recovery and re-building process ahead.    The outpouring of support  has been inspiring – assistance in the form of  hours, goods, services and dollars – $2 […]

    Have you ever gone trick or treating up and down Franklin Street?  Or through University Mall, Eastgate Shopping Center or Carr Mill Mall?  Do you always get treats?  I don’t.   I was headed out of town last weekend to celebrate my sister’s 60 birthday.

    it’s been almost a month since I posted Welcome to Notre Dame so it seems now would be a good time for a reminder.  Except instead of welcoming Phoenix Fans from Elon, now it would be more appropriate to welcome the Vandals from Idaho. So here ya go, a sign for your window:   And in […]

    I have a new favorite plumber. I had an old favorite plumber.  Polite.  Quick.  Cleaned up after himself.  But I had been trying to get him over for weeks to fix a leaky toilet.  First he was on vacation.  Then he had to handle an emergency.  And then I think he forgot about me for […]
