Type? Writer.

The lede reads: “Daniel hoped he hadn’t made a big mistake. It was a birth day present coming fr om Europe. Shipping was a big part of the price.” I’m copying from the page above, so it’s all [sic]. The package arrived from the U.K. weeks before my Virgo birthday. ” ‘What if you don’t like it?’ I got nervous, but he said he could send it back.” Sure, I could retype the whole first page I wrote on my gift on my MacBook, or scan and copy a doc that would come close. But any accuracy would be c...

La Brea Review – Bonkers Sci-Fi Hopes Constant Run Carries

La Brea thankfully opens with barely a minute of introduction before a massive sinkhole opens in downtown L.A., pulling cars, buildings, and a couple of dozen people into an unimaginably deep crater. While it is a relief to be yanked from the stilted dialog of a mother and her two children, that dialog is a broader sort of establishment than the series intends. Eve Harris (Natalie Zea) is driving her two kids to school when the incident takes place, disappearing a couple of city blocks into t...

a little dance

  A bout 48 hours . I think that's how long I was awake this time. Last night. Sleep. Before I slept I noticed the morning glories closing up. The shapeshifting filled me with peace. And then I stitched a place, without a face.   I think it is anxiety.  I remember the little dance Dad told me about when he noticed my stress.  Two steps forward, one step back.  There is a rhythm to it.  I use it on my stitching sometimes. To hold things together. And keep my perspective.  I visualized...

DeadShot Shooting Bags, Front, Rear, a Must-Have Combo

DeadShot Shooting Bags, Front, Rear, a Must-Have Combo Idaho –  -( This Product Review started off to only cover the Caldwell Dead Shot Bags but I always carry along a few of their Lead Sled Weight Bags so I can get the perfect height for my rifles while shooting.

So, I’m going to lump both items into this Product Review since I always use them in conj...

Family Biking: ‘Free range’ kids and the value of transportation independence

(Photo: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) Are you a bad parent if you let your kid use public transit on their own? Well, if you go by what other people think, you might not just be a bad parent: you could be “America’s Worst Mom.” Just ask Lenore Skenazy, who earned that title for letting her nine-year-old son (who had been begging for such an opportunity) navigate his way home by subway and bus, on his own, in New York City. Skenazy details the non-incident (her son got home just fine, totally ...

Should We Celebrate When Others Suffer?

Our family got some terrific news last week. It was the sort of news that called for hands-in-the-air praise on the town square. But I was so reluctant to share the good news with the people who had prayed for us most earnestly, the ones who sent daily kind words and Bible verses over texts, the ones who came to the house to pray. Here’s why: In the same week that our family got the answers we had prayed for, a lot of our fiercest prayer warriors didn’t get the answers we had prayed for them. On...

A Tribute to Gerald

Gerald was my Father-in-law. He passed away on September 3 at age 83 in South Africa. The loss is immense, especially after my own Dad’s recent passing. Greg and I were close to our Dads, and our hearts are very heavy.  I met Gerald shortly after meeting Greg in 1987, so I’ve known him for 34 years. Like his incredible wife Tuppy, Gerald was a big part of my life. He and Tuppy were generous, down-to-earth people who taught me a lot about being a better human being. I couldn’t have hoped for more...

How to create a wealthy mindset when you don’t have money

“No matter what I do, I can’t seem to put any money away,” Carmen shared. “I know you are supposed to have a reserve on hand in case something happens. Why can’t I do this?” “It sounds like your money stories are getting in the way,” I answered. “What’s a money story?” she asked. “It’s the narrative you tell yourself about money and how you relate to it. You create your money stories through your early experiences and memories around money. And these stories shape the way you behave with money.”...

Patsy Kensit: ‘You don’t have to marry all your boyfriends’

The actor, 53, talks about her charming dad, never reading her reviews in the papers, staying strong and eating nothing but shepherd’s pieWe grew up without money: two rooms and an outside loo. I remember shyly cowering behind the coal shed as Mum tried to photograph me, but by the age of four I was playing Mia Farrow’s daughter in The Great Gatsby. I loved the fantasy of acting, the contrast of the worlds in which I lived. It’s not that one was better, but going from life with not very much to ...

Finding Family: Ancestry DNA test reunites brothers and sisters after 60 years

In an era when DNA-testing technology enables us to find out the racial and ethnic makeup of adopted children and help us determine the breed of a rescue dog, test results also run the risk of revealing rather compelling stories. Sixty years ago, while his mother was in a Harlem hospital, giving birth to his baby sister, 2-year-old Lewis Thompson was stolen by his babysitter. His mother went on to have two more children, but Thompson, who grew up not knowing he was one of eight kids, was never s...

Baxter Dury: ‘Everything was about Dad. It was the only way he knew how to survive’

The musician talks about growing up with a pop star dad, escaping his shadow – and the 6ft 7in drug dealer who lived with them Baxter Dury strolls up to the pub, casually dressed and apologetic. The indie musician, known for his stylish suits, is wearing a white vest and unbuttoned denim shirt. His face is even whiter than the vest. Food poisoning. He ate oysters the other day, and has never been so sick. He orders a pineapple juice and soda water, sheepishly. “That’s going to be the headline, i...

How nurturing and affectionate fathers lead to resilient and emotionally intelligent kids, explained by a sociologist

Fathers are transformative figures for children, families, and communities. Eugenio Marongiu/Getty Images When fathers provide emotional support, the effects go beyond their kids' growth and development. Kids are better regulated emotionally, more resilient, and more open-minded when close with their fatherhood figures. Parenting partners are also healthier and happier when fathers are engaged with their kids. See more stories on Insider's business page. When my oldest son, now nea...
