A couple of weeks ago I was walking with my dogs on a remote snow-packed road and I encountered some other people recreating in the woods. As they passed us, a young man (they’re all young these days) yelled at me, “Get your dogs out of here!”

“I beg your pardon?” I res...

The latest trend on social media is to post a picture of yourself from ten years ago next to a current picture, like a big-picture nod to #TBT (Throw Back Thursday.) Reprinted here, for your enjoyment, Ps & Qs ten year #TBT- it’s true what they say, “the more things ch...

Do you know what a DINK is? It stands for Double Income No Kids. And if you think about it, you probably know a DINK— or two. A lot of my friends are DINKs, for various reasons, and I think it’s about time we recognize DINKs officially by featuring DINK Day on the cale...

They say, “if you’re lucky enough to be Irish, you’re lucky enough.” My mother’s family, the Moores, are Irish. And that’s exactly how I feel about my uncle Charlie; if you’re lucky enough to know him, you’re lucky enough. He has always been there for me, (and countles...

Do you want the good news first, or the bad news? Oh wait, there is no good news. I can’t take this much longer; it seems like every time I turn around there’s something so wrong with the world that I don’t know how we’ll ever make it right again. I feel like Dorothy,...

The Trump administration started separating children from their parents at the border and relocating them while their parents await trial for seeking refuge. The immigration courts in this country are moving at the speed of smell, and even if they could manage to find...

The other day my husband asked if a little alien creature was going to pop out of my gut, like in that 80s movie starring Sigourney Weaver. “I’m perimenopausal” I told him, “and it’s an early stage, so buckle up; you could be in for a rough haul.”
