  • 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.

  • Reunion stories are the best

    I love a good reunion story.
    A few years ago The New York Times ran a story about then-New York Giants head coach Jim Fassel and a young man named John Mathieson.
    Thirty-four years prior to Fassel and his wife Kitty meeting Mathieson they had been 19 and unmarried — and the parents of a baby boy whose birth and adoption they kept secret from all but their immediate families.
    And for 34 years, every April 5 the Fassels privately wished their baby boy a Happy Birthday, adding, “Wherever you are, we hope you’re OK.”

  • No such thing as flunking

    This week I turned 57.
    I thought by this age I’d get the hang of the whole sainthood thing. The Protestant definition of a saint is simply a follower of Jesus.
    However, that doesn’t seem enough. There should be more to it than that. For instance, by now I should have at least the beginning buds of a halo or be able to say no to temptation eight out of 10 times — or two out of 10!
    But the truth is, I still struggle.
