You are looking at Lucille, the new and fabulous place to hang out in Madison! Pat Sweeny invited Gregg (my son) and I to take a look at the new digs. They have opened to raves, and it’s no surprise!  Right where the Isthmus used offices to be, Lucille has added the coolest huge, sliding […]

One of the things I did while I was on “staycation” was clean out my clothes closet. It’s a good thing to do every once in a while for many reasons:  It feels good to clean and purge. It gives you a sense of renewal. When you clean out your closet and donate your old […]

In today’s world, if you have NOT been touched by cancer, you’re in the minority.

I hoped I could find one at the big, local consignment […]

I recently learned that after water, coffee is the next-most-popular drink worldwide. I have NO idea how they figure out such things, but it’s no surprise to me. After my son Gregg and I had a very nice birthday dinner, we noodled over to Sur La Table to look around at all the cool cooking […]
