This time of year, you want to do something meaningful--that doesn't require more driving around or money! Here's something that will be appreciated for sure.
I'm proud of KBAY listener, Saba, a student at Archbishop Mitty High School. Saba has set up a wonderful site for you to relay your heartfelt comments to the folks affected by the tragedy. Click the link to write a few compassionate words...
Did you watch 2011's "Happiness Is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown" last night? My kids kept saying it was boring. The problem I had was its "no redeeming value". Lucy is downright evil! The other kids keep saying they hate Charlie Brown, even Linus brings you down with his hoping he doesn't end up like Charlie. The show ends with Linus getting away with lying to his grandma to get what he wants. YIKES--what would Charles Schulz have said?
Take heart, the REAL Charlie Brown special is on ABC tonight. And you can see "A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie" on The CW.
My good friend, ROBERT BERRY has a great voice and a very creative sense of celebrating the holidays! He blends favorite Christmas songs with popular tunes, and the result is COOL! Check out Silent Night in Tears for Fears style--my fave! Keep listening to this cd, you'll hear distinctive Beach Boys harmonies too!
This is one of those days that you wish you could turn off reality--or rewind and somehow change the course of events. My heart aches for the families in Newtown, Connecticut. Don't you just want to hug someone you care about?
Happy 12/12/12. 'Hope it's a lucky one for you!
Are Christmas cards a tradition that's fizzling out for you? Just thinking about family and friends that aren't with us anymore--as long as I've got important folks in my life, cards will be sent!
Tomorrow at 12 minutes and 12 seconds after 12 O'clock, the time will be 12:12:12, 12/12/12. Later in the day, my pal Loren will be getting married. I plan to say, "Happy 12/12/12" a bunch! What else will be fun for the day?
Are you in trouble, like I am?? A British skin-care company did a fashion survey of what's "inappropriate" for women over 40. The bad: knee-high boots, high heels, animal prints, maxi-skirts, mini-anything, giant jewelry, leather pants, long hair, and red lipstick!
Lorraine Macias MendozaI guess I would be if I cared what people thought. I think you should wear whatever you are comfortable in. If you like it and think it looks good, wear it! I'm in my mid fifties and have long hair, Uh oh... Ahhh... Who cares!:) just enjoy life!
Lisa CarrPuh-leeeze! If it looks appropriate, wear it! (But please have a full-length mirror!)
Janice BeatyIsn't 50 the new 40? I don't have long hair or wear red lipstick. Don't wear high heels much, but dammit, I'm not giving up the boots!
Pat CatanzaroOh, that's stupid!! If you can pull it off, why not?!?!
Judy CrumWhat does it say about clothes from Disneyland?
Janie FreemanYep, I read that this morning. I keep away fromthings too short or things too tight, but I think boots are a fine look, even for older women. Also, an older woman often looks great in bright lipstick and nails. It adds life to a (forgive me) less than supple complexion. I learned that when my mom was alive. She always looked nicer with a bright color lipstick.
Tracey GathJust another way to attempt to keep women small. Do what makes you happy.
Suzanne San NicolasBS, I disagree, if I wanna wear it, I will, I have knee high black boots, red lipstick, and leggings, and IM almost 60!
Lorraine Macias MendozaThinking more on this, you know if we dressed the way they expect us to do, they would call us old and frumpy looking! You can't make everyone happy, so just make yourself happy:)
Carol SmithI agree with all of the above. I wear what I want!
Jona Denz-HamiltonPerspective: 2000 women 45+ answered this survey put out by a British skincare company. (Stock up on our queenly hats and gloves!)
Lynn GoldThe fashion police are constantly looking to arrest people to plump up their coffers.
Have you ever felt star power just standing near someone? BARRY MANILOW'S San Jose show last night was one of those, "We're all old friends here" performances: flawless fun and so sentimental! 'Topped off by the great company of KBAY winners Debbie & Ben, & personal trainer, Marie!
Dee Douglaswow! you have so many awesome experiences! i'm so glad for you!
Jaci OchoaAw, super cool! I was there last night -- great show!
Ofelia Pena McCainI love him. With his "work" done he reminds me of that puppet that was popular in the late 70's "Madame... " ( I can't recall the full name). They were on Hollywood Squares a the full name). They were on Hollywood Squares a lot.
