My new home has many charms. It’s not too big but not too small, just right for two busy people who do many things together and some things on their own. The backyard is massive, and we’re trying to decide how to use it. Friends have suggested we install a private airstrip or rent it …

Reaction to a newspaper article about bullying from letter-writers to that same paper, is really ticking me off.
I’m as hooked on Lost as ever. It had me when a survivor from the initial crash was sucked into a jet engine in episode one. Yeah, it’s dark and so am I. But I’m wondering how far off the path of reality it will have to wander to tie everything together.
By now you’ve probably heard that reality show winner J.D. Fortune claims he was dropped as frontman of INXS after an 18 month tour around the world.

I’m not so naive these days. Twice divorced, once bitten, and all of the rest. But I’m still a sucker for a good romantic story.
