I love magazines. I used to subscribe to 26 different publications. I had so many magazines that my friends nicknamed me “Magazina.” I’m sure that I could have bought a house five years sooner than I did, had I not subscribed to so many decorating publications. At any rate, with what I think amounts to […]

Why do I hate social media? Today Twitter suggested that I follow not one, but two of my ex-boyfriends… …and Tucker Max. Really? See, it’s not just because I am eleventy years old and a total crab box. And people wonder why I don’t use facebook.

What I can never have enough of? Stripey socks. One of the exemptions of The Compact–my favorite environmental movement that challenges its participants to buy nothing new for one calendar year–is underwear. Yes, you can buy new underwear.

Her tiny apartment is a brilliant reminder that you don’t need money or space to have an inspiring home. When her landlords blocked the roof access stairs for liability […]

Today Mr. Foxypants and I auditioned as beekeepers for a Kashi commercial. We were recruited by a local casting company through our bee club blog. I don’t know if any other actual beekeepers auditioned today, but the lobby of the casting company was full of actors auditioning for the beekeeper part. They were all wearing […]

Two great things that go great together: beekeeping and THE ROCKFORD FILES! This episode aired in 1974. Sadly, 37 years later, beekeepers are still facing the same issues. On an amusing side note, David Chase, the creator of THE SOPRANOS, was a writer and producer on THE ROCKFORD FILES. If you watch THE ROCKFORD FILES, […]
