Hope Springs and it Does

Hope Springs ReviewI have not seen Hope Springs, but I fully intend to go and and see it.  One of my favorite programs CBS Sunday Morning, and one of my favorite people David Edelstein did a wonderful review of Hope Springs.  Take a look. The movie stars Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep.I do take what David Edelstein says to heart.  He has given me some very good reviews on musical artist that I truly love--Leela James, Eva Cassidy, Melody, Gardot just to name a few.If you are a woman of a certain age, want to understand a a woman on a certain age or know someone of a certain age, take a look at the review given by David Edelstein.  The part about the anniversary gift made me smile.  My hubby and I just got back from Scottsdale, Arizona where I celebrated our anniversary, and he went on vacation--he forgot.I have forgiven him for forgetting and gone on because "thisisyourbestyear".

Pampering While Away from Home

As I always told my students “you can learn something everyday, if you just listen”.  While on my trip to Chicago, I did the Segway tour of Hyde Park, and I had the best time.  There was a very nice couple on the same tour that gave me some information that some of you might already know.

They informed me they had gotten their tickets on Groupon.  I paid $59 and they paid the same $59 for two tickets.  They said as soon as they know they are going to a certain city, they go online and see what deals they can find.  Needless to say, I learned my lesson, and took their information to heart.

While in Scottsdale, Arizona, I was able to get a 50 minute massage along with a 50 minute facial for the wonderful price of $49 at Divine Skin Spa.  You read it right.  It was well worth it.

Each time I go away with my hubby, I always try to get some sort of personal spa treatment. Now that I know this little information, I will be getting even more spa treatments and doing special things.  Some of the sites that you might want to visit are: Groupon, Living Social, Deal of the Day, Daily Deal and Crowd Pleaser.  There are probably more.  I do suggest that you call and book the appointment, then make your purchase.

Ladies and gentlemen we all know that a little pampering always helps because we know “thisisyourbestyear”.

Stop the Madness–Exercise and “Our” Hair

I wrote this article some years ago, and decided it was time to pull it out of the vault. As a woman of a certain age, a woman who is a mother, a woman who is African American and a woman who is an educator I wanted to write one about “our” hair and “exercise”. Since I’ve read negative things online lately about the Olympians, I thought it would be nice to revisit this article. Take a moment and enjoy and reflect. Remember “thisisyourbestyear”, and for those in the Olympics “thisistheirbestyear”. Be proud and be silent–it can be “Golden”.
