How to Be A Good Jihadi Wife

November 1, 2014

22

  It’s tough enough to be a good wife when one’s spouse has a 9-5 job.  It’s a totally different kettle of fish to be a jihadi wife.  Even a simple good-bye kiss at the door becomes quite complicated when one is wearing a burka and one’s spouse’s head is wrapped entirely in black cloth. […]

Guerrilla Aging: Money Honey

October 31, 2014

11

  Money means more than dollars. It’s tied to our sense of success, to security, to power, to independence.  It can be what allows us, or stops us, from fulfilling our dreams.  And, for most women, it’s something we don’t give much thought to until we are confronted with a major life change. For those […]

October 27, 2014

32

Let’s be clear, right off the bat: This is neither a post about cats nor about Kanye.  This is, however, a post about what happens once one writes a blog post that may be less-than-favorable, albeit satiric, about American icons.

The Depleted Gene Pool Weighs in On Ebola

October 21, 2014

  Anyone with half a brain (and, apparently, there are a number of folks walking around with less than the required amount of brain mass) now knows, thanks to Rush Limbaugh, that President Obama is allowing Ebola to slip into America as a payback for slavery. This is a fascinating theory, since Ebola started in […]

Guerrilla Aging: Should Life End at 75?

October 10, 2014

59

  My last post concerned death.  This one does, as well.  Lest you think I have changed my blog to Death in the Boomer Lane, let me assure you this isn’t the case.  After today’s post, I will return once again to less weighty issues, in which I can incorporate satire, immaturity, and coffee Haagen […]
