Inauguration 2013

2008 Inauguration

DC-area peeps?  Are  you planning to go to any of the 2013 Inauguration festivities?  How in the world do you choose which to go to?  The schedule is mind boggling! I’ve heard about all kinds of Inaugural Balls–one for members of the Armed Forces, all kinds of state balls, etc.  Then there’s a National Day […]

I’m a Digital Sister of the Year!


I first heard about and randomly signed on to Twitter in the summer of 2008.  Back then, there simply weren’t a lot of folks to follow.  But, also there was much less “noise.”  Most were using their Twitter voices to expand their brands and broadcast their messages.  One of the first Twitter voices that I […]

The Elusive Scarf

My First Kiss

I shall never forget my first kiss.  He was a classmate from good ole Brightwood Elementary School in Washington, DC.  His name was David Betts and he was the smartest boy in the class (I’ve always been attracted to smart men). He’d invited me to his “birthday party” and it wasn’t until after my mom […]

What Was Your First Car?`

My First Car - Pitch!

Most folks have fond memories of the first vehicle that they called their own.  It matters not if it was grand or an old, decrepit jalopy (new school-ers  call them hoopties). I remember my first car fondly.  It was a brand new 1983 Chevy Chevette, much like the one pictured below, except in Candy Apple […]
