I paint my nails with clear polish often, too, Mamie. I always use a base coat beneath my nails. It makes my nails look neat, pretty and glamorous. I keep my nails short, though: long nails – on me – bug me. I also often clean my nails with soap & a nail brush. I don’t like grubby nails. Plus, I do a lot of cooking and hate having onions beneath…[Read more]
I agree with much of what you’ve said, Mamie. I also think it is best to take palm reading, tarot cards, horoscopes, etc. lightly. Because it is science that explains the world, everything in the world and the entire universe. Science is why we’ve got our computers. Science is why people go on airplanes.

Sending positive thoughts your way.
That’s what I thought, Mamie! But I could understand where my sister was coming from. It was her weekend and why should she miss out on enjoying herself, going out & about? I had been very selfish. But we went out yesterday and had a great time! We aren’t going out today, as we have to start cooking dinner early. We are making Coq Au Vin. I shall…[Read more]
I am not a parent at this stage of my life, but have strong principles when it comes to parenting. Food and diet is something I would strongly instil in a daughter. I would show them – through example – rather than tell them. Words can be ignored or pushed aside, whereas actions have a much more lasting effect. I would show them through my actions…[Read more]
