A lot of us “older” moms are in the same boat: the kids are older, we need more income, but we haven’t been in […]

Well here’s an interesting site, Travel Feedback.com. It’s another one of those social network websites, where you can add and read feedback from users. This really looks kind of cool, and would make a great resource for the global traveler (or, even a domestic one, like me). I did a quick search on “pizza” in […]

The Global Warming Yadda Yadda is supposed to chitter-chatter (emphasis on the chatter) their plans before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee tomorrow (Wednesday).

I think there are more women bloggers than men, isn’t that so? That just may be that women have more prolonged access to home computers, maybe? But it seems […]
