  • Take some time for PLAY!

    Taking at least an hour each week or each day to check out and decompress from life's responsibilities has actually become necessary, especially after the stress of this past year. I am constantly working on many projects and often time do not take a true moment for myself to just chill. I literally have to schedule my meditation practice into my calendar, which kind of makes me sad, but I still do it. In addition, I have to schedule my "play time". Play is much more than fun and it's for everyo…

  • Did YOU Let Yourself Go During 2020?

    Do you or did you suffer from Lockdown Laziness? Here's how you know. If you are still wearing your pajamas while grocery shopping, you probably need to snap out of it. Weight gain and stress eating were definite downsides to the pandemic. Pretty much, everyone would agree that 2020 was a wacky year for health and habits. I know everything changed for me.

  • Buying a House in California

    I'm still learning about buying a home in California. Home buying is complicated, especially in this state's market. It’s not exactly easy figuring out how to get started, how much you can afford, and what “amortization” means without talking to a lot of people. After talking to a licensed lender, I feel like I gained a heck of a lot of knowledge but also confused myself even further. This past pandemic year was not a normal year for anyone, financially speaking and who know what this year wil…

  • Will the real Marilyn please stand up? - Interview with Actress Susan Griffiths

    I am fascinated by Marilyn Monroe. Wikipedia has her short biography description as follows: "Marilyn Monroe was an American actress, model, and singer. Famous for playing comedic "blonde bombshell" characters, she became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s and early 1960s and was emblematic of the era's changing attitudes towards sexuality." Very general explanation for someone who has stood the test of time and influenced many generations, huh? She was much more than her looks …

  • Major savings on DELL!

    I have to admit, I am an Apple product baby. It's almost like religion. But...most of my family is not. I was told that I wasn't being fair, by only sticking to the mainstay that a lot of Entertainment people buy into by only using Apple products, when I recommend hot ticket computer stuff. I literally had to learn a Dell system, so I could understand how to help my parents navigate their own computer. So, I promised more info on holiday deals and here you go!

  • How do you know when you can afford to buy a house?

    After my last blog about rent calculations, using Zumper.com, I received a bit of email from people asking about mortgage calculators and buying a home. This led me on a quest, because I really have not looked into it, being that the median cost of a home in Los Angeles starts in the millions and I am currently not in the market. A lot of people, due to this pandemic year, have left California and relocated to other states that garner more bang for their buck. The size of a home in Texas is a fo…
