Seven Things I Love (3-22-21)

1. This VACCINATED Menopausal Broad – pardon my hair, I forgot to fix it before the photo. You can’t see it but I’m both a little teary-eyed and overjoyed. Not surprisingly, I’ve been reading everything I can on the vaccines and post-vaccine life and I found this excellent article in the Washington Post. WashPo hasContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (3-22-21)”

Seven Things I Love (2-22-2021)

1. This “Personal Library” – housed in his home, WOW! I wonder what his house looks (looked) like. Right after college I landed a job at a wonderful bookshop called Webster’s. It was originally like something out of a movie. (I say originally because it kept expanding and became less and less charming.) Anyway, oneContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (2-22-2021)”

Seven Things I Love (1-11-2021)

1. This Photographer, Kirsty Mitchell – she is possibly my favorite photographer and I was lucky enough to get to see an exhibit for her book “Wonderland” in 2017. And incredibly they allowed photographs! I purchased the book (a completely worthwhile investment) but I love that I have several gorgeous digital shots. Here are aContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (1-11-2021)”

Seven Things I Love (12-21-2020): Christmas Edition

It’s almost Christmas, YIPPEE!!!! I want to thank my friend Ann who was the person who shared a few of this week’s ‘Things I Love’ with me. Thanks Ann! 1. This Suffragettes’ Christmas Card – Savvy Twitter users who could read music noticed that the music at the bottom of the card was actually forContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (12-21-2020): Christmas Edition”

Seven Things I Love (12-7-2020)

How is it already DECEMBER???? 1. This Tea Party – Truly amazing. I belong to the Facebook group called ‘The Gilded Age Society.’ The Edwardian Era has always been my favorite time period, even before ‘Downton Abbey’ was a thing. Recently a young person name Paul Ryan T. Co, who is also a member ofContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (12-7-2020)”

The Menopausal Broad’s Guide to the Best Holiday Movies You Can Stream in 2020

These are in no particular order of preference. How many have you seen? Get Santa (Netflix) – charming Christmas movie with a Paddington-esque quality (they were both released in 2014) where things go quite afoul for Santa. But with a little help from his friends he manages to make his deliveries on time. With JimContinue reading “The Menopausal Broad’s Guide to the Best Holiday Movies You Can Stream in 2020”

Seven Things I Love (10-12-2020)

1. This Children’s Librarian – who set up the best display ever the day after the Vice Presidential debate. 2. These Celebrities teaching us American Slang – I grew up in Iowa where we have no accent and no slang! Mwah ha ha ha ha ha. So not true. In fact, my Mom, whom IContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (10-12-2020)”

Seven Things I Love 8-17-2020

1. The Technicolor Fashion Show Scene from the original version of the movie ‘The Women’ (1939) – I suspect more people are familiar with the 2008 film version of ‘The Women’ starring Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, and Jada Pinkett-Smith. The casts of both films are entirely women, you never once seeContinue reading “Seven Things I Love 8-17-2020”

Five Things I Love (7-27-2020)

1. Dr. Anthony Fauci on the cover of ‘In Style’ magazine. Yowzah! The article is an interview with Dr. Fauci and his wife, Dr. Christine Grady, and it’s super interesting. I think it’s amazing that we finally made a rock star out of a scientist! 2. This article calling for the return of Parasols –Continue reading “Five Things I Love (7-27-2020)”

Five Things I Love (5/18/2020)

This article that compares people who refuse to wear masks to men who refuse to wear condoms. It’s freaking brilliant. Here’s the beginning of the article: Am I the only woman who finds a suspicious similarity between the excuses made by people who refuse to wear masks in public and men who refuse to putContinue reading “Five Things I Love (5/18/2020)”
