  • God rides a tractor

    Years ago, we had a neighbor, Sandy, who moved into the house around the bend from ours.
    She and her husband and two kids moved to Florida from New Jersey where her husband had struggled with a drug addiction — and a girlfriend.
    They came to make a new start, which only lasted a few weeks. Sandy’s husband decided he wasn’t ready to give up his girlfriend and moved back to New Jersey.

  • What is your sign from God?

    For the most part I’m not a fan of the “Messages from God” billboards (“What part of ‘Thou Shalt Not’ didn’t you understand?” “Keep using my name in vain and I’ll make rush hour longer,” “You think it’s hot here?”).
    Launched a few years ago by a Fort Lauderdale advertising agency, there are 17 messages in all, each one signed simply “God.”
    I do, however, like the one that says, “Well, you did ask for a sign.”
    That always makes me laugh.

  • Dropping the phony facade

    Thanks to the magic of DVR I’ve been watching the first three seasons of “Mad Men.”
    Set in the early 1960s, the series is about a New York Madison Avenue advertising firm, centering around one character, Don Draper, who heads the creative department.
    He’s a fascinating character — aloof, suave and handsome and morally bankrupt. He’s married with two kids, but he sleeps with anything in a skirt. It’s not uncommon for him to not come home for a few days.

  • Built for great things

    Last month my husband and I went to Charlotte, N.C., one of our favorite cities.
    We stayed uptown — which I would call downtown, but what do I know? — right in the middle of all the tall buildings and skyscrapers.
    I have a confession to make. I love buildings. I mean, I love, l-o-v-e buildings, like chocoholics love chocolate and pie-aholics love pie. Well, maybe not that much, but I love architecture and design, Gothic arches and flying buttresses.

  • New Year, turkeys, gravy and grace

    My daughter Alison rues Thanksgiving 2002.
    That was her year of the perfect turkey. Prior to that, her turkeys ranged from dry to just OK.
    Then in 2002 she took a risk and brined her turkey, which turned out succulent and delicious. However, in 2003, even though she followed the same recipe, her turkey wasn’t perfect and that ruined her holiday meal.
