Don’t Call “Amy” by Laura Walcher Well, I did.  I called Amy.  Sweetly, I thanked her for her consideration.  She’d called to tell me that she could probably get me an appointment to have my car serviced; very appreciated, I’m a busy woman.  In fact, I’d been so busy that I wound up..well, I couldn’t […]

No Really, What Now? by Laura Walcher Okay, so once again, in a week of unrelenting frustrations and challenges, I decided not to strangle Mr. Entitled.  (“Fen” is his “real” name; our smart-aleck black poodle/bichon, who’s grown up to believe himself the emperor, tho’ he doesn’t even pay the mortgage.) So, he dips beneath a […]

A Curiously Cranky Columnist Go ahead; crab all you want.  I’m with you!  I’ve concluded, however, that I must stop crabbing about Mr. Trump, who will probably still be president by publication time, despite so many national/international efforts to…umm: un-president him.  The problem is, I haven’t paid sufficient attention to other issues that deserve being […]

“The Trumpiness of Trump” We definitely have to conjure up new ways of cheering ourselves up. Or expressing our anger. Or fear – you know, in this era of … Trump.  Other grumbly societies have been far more creative – and to the point – than have we.  In Greece, for instance, one can throw […]

Direct Mail: A Contemporary Dilemma! If there were an award to get for “membership” in the MOST not-for-profit organizations, I could, by now, have earned it.  Here’s my short list:  The Audubon Society.  Feeding America.

The Peacemaker Awards to Honor Those That Communicate, Collaborate and Connect While the National Conflict Resolution Center (NCRC), in this 31st year of Peacemaker, continues to uphold and expand its mission of peacemaking, we fear the “world” is not keeping pace.

Love on Wry – Me, Myself, I If I’m not thinking about my disastrous hair thinning and white under Clairol care, my deplorable feet consumes my mind. Every shoe on earth is too tight a bind. I follow these critical issues with deeper thoughts: My writing; my music; my urgent need to hike and swim; […]

We Get By…With a Little Help Could there be a better or more inspiring report than learning about Steven Spielberg’s SHOAH Foundation, and his yeoman efforts to address, combat and eliminate our rising anti-semitism, anti-black, anti-LGBTQ drives, newly motivated by “anything” permissibly spawned without consequence on social media?
