I love concise, little things. Including quick, clear answers to questions. Often, a lengthy response is unnecessary.
Here’s some itty bitty advice to commonly asked questions:
How can I have a great marriage? Listen. And forgive. A lot.
How can I feel calmer? Do yoga. Even a little helps.
What should I do when people are mean? Be nicer. Set a good example.
How can I feel good? Exercise. Do something physical every day.
What diet should I follow? Eat well and eat what you enjoy – but be moderate.
What’s the secret to great skin? Never, ever tan. Use Paula’s Choice products.
How can I learn tarot? Practice, practice, practice. (PS here are some free tarot tools just for you.)
How can I be a good parent? Be supportive, have strong house rules but give them room to be themselves.
How can I connect to spirt in a stronger way? Meditate.
Should I read my email first thing in the morning? Up to you. I do.
Should I get a pet? Yes. Preferably, an itty bitty kitty.
How can I create lasting friendships? Be honest and don’t be a drag. Don’t play games.
How can I form strong business relationships? Treat people with respect.
How can I keep a clean house? Join Fly Lady.
What should I cook tonight? If you have 200 cookbooks like I do, you’ll never run out of ideas. (That’s how I roll!)
What’s your secret to a happy life? You can choose to be happy no matter what.
Small can be mighty effective.
Fall is coming.

Interesting read: 15 diseases doctors often get wrong.
Student scientists are working to create a nail polish that could prevent date rape. Wouldn’t it be nice if we didn’t need that? Imagine a world where men knew how to be respectful. I’d like that solution instead of having to rely on some nail polish to make sure I’m not slipped some drug by some asshole.
I love to sleep! Am going to be following these tips on how to make the most comfortable bed ever!

I am smitten with the cooking show, Extra Virgin. I adore the hosts and everything they cook! And voila – they have a cookbook: Extra Virgin: Recipes & Love from Our Tuscan Kitchen. This is top ‘o my list of must-get cookbooks.
