Grandma always said: Be beautiful at the window, be an angel in the kitchen and a devil in the bedroom. 

Love, trust, understanding, and communication are the common denominators for a good relationship, whether you are companions or dating long-term and contemplating the big step.
The Power Couple is the highest level-relationship. They do have their ups and downs, but quickly resolved and never disclosed in public.
The power couple is admired and envied. They always seem to be in sync and display compatibly wherever they go. This is not a fairy tale relationship by any means but the ingredients are different.
How It begins Most people marry their high school or college sweetheart or, they go separate ways after school for whatever reason – they might marry – then either divorce or become widowed. Then i…

Portfolio of Good Health

“Money makes the world go ‘round", but the one commodity which the almighty dollar cannot buy is good health.


An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure or, as I prefer to say – One perfect rose is better than a bruised bouquet. Good health is taken for granted until pain ensues and tests return unfavorable results.


Stress The biggest offender is stress. It comes in all forms and we allow it to control our lives, rather than we controlling ‘it’. Reducing stress takes discipline and recognizing the cause. 
Procrastination is one. Putting off the unpleasant tasks or doctor appointments since we are not ready to pursue, yet it haunts us on a daily basis until one morning we awaken and say, “okay, this is the day it gets done!
Reducing stress, per se, requires staying calm which is virtually impossible in daily living.The power of positive thinking creates positive energy and helps recharge our mental and physical batteries. 
We need to distance ourselves from negative people and …

How to Roast Succulent and Perfect Turkey

How to Roast a Succulent and Perfect Turkey

The year 2020 has not been kind to us but the holidays are approaching. We are fighters and have the need to live life while complying with masks and social distancing. Truth be told, I entertained the thought of dining out but with Covid still lurking, the only option is outdoor dining which has no appeal especially for Thanksgiving, no matter how many heated bubbles restaurant owners set up.  The fun part of Thanksgiving is the after-dinner picking and ongoing snacking for the following week. It’s what we do and what we love!  So! I decided that this year I would host Thanksgiving again. The only difference is wearing my mask before and after dinner and social distancing as best possible. 
In the past, I always ordered and cooked frozen turkey. Then a few years ago curiosity and a change of pace had me purchase a fresh bird and a good choice it was. The only problem is that a fresh turkey does not come with a lifter; hence, I created my own.…

The Destination Wedding, also referred to as the Wed-Cation, provides the bride, groom and guests with vacation-like accommodations while preparing for the big event; hence, given all the indoor/outdoor accommodations, the Le Blanc Spa Resort is considered a village within itself.
Upon arrival, guests are greeted at the main entrance with a refreshing coconut drink and a moistened hand cloth. Subsequently, the guests are checked in, given a wrist band and escorted to their deluxe rooms which inc…

Hear My Roar

There is nothing in this life that cannot be fixed or, resolved; hence, life consists of situations, not problems. Like grandma used to say“there’s a lid for every pot”.

Whether it is parenting, enjoying a relationship or, trying to advance in the workplace, the key ingredients are patience, persistence, and pursuit.


Patience:Stand back and view the entire picture.
Persistence: Tool of determination. Stay positive. Let nothing and no one deter you from moving forward.

Pursuit:  Aim high until you achieve that dream/goal.

What you would realize later in life that you live in a negative society that thrives on obstacles that hold you down and hold you back.

The Early Years
From toddler to adolescence, your mind was pretty much on what you wanted to be when you grow up. Family and friends mused over your vivid imagination. You were a child and had no voice of your own.

During the scholastic years, your classmates and teachers (professors) were actually supportive in your goals and what you hoped…

Me, Myself and I

Me, Myself and I


How comfortable are you in your own skin?
Can you stay in a room without the radio or TV and just enjoy being by yourself for hours on end; hence, Me, Myself and I; or, are you the restless one who needs to be busy every minute; needs the constant companionship of radio, TV, computer or surrounded by friends.  




Life is comprised of forty percent privacy and sixty percent sociability but given the human behavior, this will vary. 
The total introvert prefers eighty percent privacy and twenty percent sociability. The social aspect is based on necessary interaction with fellow humans.
The extrovert has a huge appetite for life which includes travel and sociability; hence, the Me, Myself and I represent solitude, a negative factor. Their privacy level depends on their needs or mindset. 
The rare “perfect balance” of Me, Myself and I, is the person who is totally comfy in their own skin, embraces both their privacy and the social aspect with their specific circle of friends. Th…
