My fabulous younger self

Meanwhile, on Facebook: Everyone’s posting their first profile picture next to their most recent. Here’s my first profile picture, taken while I was sliding down a gorge in upstate New York with my dog, Snickers. Back then I was living in Manhattan, on the Columbia University campus because my husband was getting his Ph.D. in […]

Why it’s OK to repeat yourself

People are forgetful.  And when I say “people” I’m mainly talking about myself and my children… you might know some people like that too. This morning I was getting them ready for school. I had the lunches lined up on the table and was making a big pile of snow clothes while the middle one […]

Time to Dig

On New Year’s Eve we dumped on with nearly two feet of snow. My burrowing and tunneling instincts kicked in first thing in the morning as I went about locating my van under a lump of white, digging it out and creating a path to the road. The roads were a different story, but at […]

I Don’t Have the Confidence to Sell THOSE

Feature Stories About The Newest Member of the Team

When you’re creating content for your website, interviewing the newest member of the team is a good place to start.  Why? First of all, they’re new.

It feels so Zen in here!

I spent time this afternoon getting rid of all the clutter on the shelf in my dining room. Now, the shelf is nearly bare, has no haphazard stacks of books, no toys, no papers, and no piles of loose change. It’s completely nonfunctional. Purely decorative. For some reason that makes me feel good about myself. […]

Another Nerdy Facebook Debate

There is one thing in this world that I can count on. I know that if I post anything even remotely science related on Facebook, my friends will jump in and engage in a nerdy debate. Case in point. The other night I was bartending at the American Legion in Los Alamos, NM.  Sally and […]
