I love that title, borrowed from President Obamaís speech given in Tucson, Arizona, on January 13, 2011. Speeches are so much in the news of late. The Kingís Speech is an incredible and honored movie in which Colin Firth gives a brilliant portrayal of a manís (Englandís King, (more…)

Thank you, Betty White!
Do you realize what youíre doing for those of us in the senior citizen twilight zone? Youíve breathed new life into our ambitions, restored respect to our abilities and made us realize we arenít too old to stay up for SNL. Thank you from the bottom of our still beating hearts.
We realize that if Betty White can participate so fully in a revived career, thereís hope out there for those of us in our 60ís, 70ís or even 80ís and 90ís. Thereís no need for us to succumb to a label. Youíve definitely put a detour sign on The Road to Hospice.
Way to go, fair lady.

Anybody seen Carol D. OíDellís blogs? Sheís quite the authority on care giving, even has a bookóMothering Mother-- out on the subject. She reminds me that Iím no longer light years from the receiving end of care giving myself. Makes me contemplate what that might be like.
A call to one daughter would come back with something like: Oh, Mom, Iím so sorry you arenít well, but I have all these rescued dogs and I must find homes for them. You know how time consuming that is. I couldnít bring them all the way to the East Coast with me and have no place to leave them. You do understand, donít you? Couldnít you call Hospice instead?
A call to the other daughter and the conversation would probably go like this: Mom, Iíve told you and told you that you should quit eating meat and exercise more. Now get out of that bed and do a good 40 minute workout on the treadmill. And remember, if you donít sweat, it isnít a workout!
Should I heed the call of the treadmill or take a nap? What do you think Iíll do?

I haven't been on vacation. Takes a long time to revise a book, but I believe it's been worth the effort. Keep your fingers crossed that I can find an agent who feels the same way.

And there is much in the news, but for things that have caught my eye:
Bernie Madoff, The Man of Steal, is having his mettle tested. Pun intended.
Members of South Carolina's first family, tired of crying for Argentina, are returning to the home place in Charleston.
Sarah, wink wink - nudge nudge, Palin signals she'd rather shoot a wolf than be a lame duck.
Michelle--the arms have it--Obama continues to dazzle with her unique fashion sense. A lovely First Lady.
Former President Bill Clinton's true colors shine through his diplomacy in securing N. Korean pardons for Euna Lee and Laura Ling

I don't envy Michelle Obama her First Lady status, nor her marriage to that cool guy we call Mr. President, not even her Pennsylvania Ave. address--Neptune Beach suits me. I do, however, envy her ability to wear sleeveless dresses. Oh how I envy that! She has arms and shoulders to die for.
