The entire event is live streamed so you can watch it on your computer.  Better yet, sync your computer with your telly and watch on the big screen.

Do you tell the truth about your life?  That makes you a feminist. Whew, glad we got that straightened out.

(Two years ago, I posted “Are you a feminist?” If you’re still afraid of calling yourself a feminist, please read!)

Are you a nasty woman?  The answer to that would also be yes. If you speak your mind, you are a nasty woman.  Be proud.

Last evening, the television series The Good Wife ended.  It has been running for seven years. That’s longer than many relationships.

I thought the writers did a splendid job with the finale which is always a slippery slope.  No happily ever after. We did get a bit of fantasy and romance, smacked down with reality.  It reflected the uncertainty of life perfectly:  everything is up in the air, change or die, and life goes on.

Yes, that would be me.  I’ve become a general contractor.  My good friend Jean taught me to hire myself and pay me well. More on my pay, later.

In the last 24 hours I’ve had visits from a plumber (who couldn’t resolve the problem of a cistern that won’t stop running), the water purifier people, telling me I need a new pump under my sink to fortify the water purifier which needs maintenance all the time, a mason who didn’t fix leaky roof and it kept raining in my living room.

Another good role model

The thing that appeals to me about fictional female sleuths is that they are fearless.   They are empowered women.  They live the life.  They are intuitive.  And they don’t suffer with getting lost or a bad sense of direction (which is the bane of my life). Female sleuths have a man in their past, but not in their present. [Read more…]

She’s college educated, well traveled, super smart, funny, sharp, sophisticated, well mannered. She’s talented, hard working, fun loving, sensitive, highly spiritual.  She’s a mother and a grandmother.  Presently she’s single, but she’s so charismatic, there are always men hovering around her.

⟡ My former addiction! ⟡

What a pleasant surprise to find that my business coach, Marie Forleo, answered my question on her show this week. I was laughing at myself as Marie said to “step away from the self help buffet.” Yep, that was me…going back for seconds.  Now, I’m the coastest with the mostest. [Read more…]
