  • Feb. 14 will mark the 96th anniversary of the founding of the League of Women Voters in 1920 by Carrie Chapman Catt, six months before the ratification of 19th amendment granting all women in the United States the right to vote.
  • The hubs, Jim, and I met this week’s guests at the Pizza Hut.  Where else, right?  Hey, my buddies like the buffet there, too.  Started out as a great meal and an ever better interview when the answer to my first question was, “Well, he’s 88 – he wasn’t that old when I married him!”
  • This past year has been difficult, to say the least.  Becoming a single mom after twenty-four years of marriage, redesigning my life, creating an entirely new future than the one I had always envisioned…all of this has wrought a great deal of stress in my life.

  • One of Greece's most notable pieces of ancient history concerns the region's repeated battles with barbarians from the East.  The Greeks considered themselves civilized, advanced, cultured people.  Cultural chauvinism had been rampant and in most historical accounts it is generally thought to have been fully justified.  The reason is that despite much dispute about what if anything is universally, objectively true concerning how human beings ought to organize their communities, certain basic principles are not thought to be controversial.
  • My wife says I’m not a spiritual person but I believe I could be someday. I mean, you have to have faith. The most spiritual thing I do is shop at Whole Foods, a supermarket that caters to people who opt for a diet that is organic, pure and chemical-free. However, I prefer food with preservatives. It’s cheaper than a face lift.
