  • New plans for the suburban green

    Some rather funny polling from Consumer Reports suggests both good and bad tendencies when it comes to America’s lawn care habits. 

    The good news is that 43 percent of the people polled plan on spending more time this year in their outdoor spaces. Some plan on entertaining more at home this summer; others suggest that they are competing with their neighbors to have the prettiest yard on the block.

  • 'Maybe a broken heart is God’s gifts to us'

    Those who know me know my two grand passions: cake with buttercream frosting and the “Gilmore Girls.”

    Currently, I’m watching season two on DVD.

    For those who don’t know about the “Gilmore Girls,” it’s a now-canceled TV series about a single mother and her teenage daughter who live in Stars Hollow, a quirky little town outside Hartford, Conn. The mother, Lorelai Gilmore, is young, gorgeous, witty, talks a mile a minute, loves movies and TV and eats like a horse.
