Back in 1965, I organized a day-long treasure hunt around Martha’s Vineyard for a bunch of teenagers who were the children of Washington’s “Best and Brightest” in the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. It’s a miracle we didn’t all end up in jail…
A few thoughts on “personal architecture” – as in, how are you made? Plus, my favoritest ever Greek dish – Moussaka!
No food this time – just an account of perhaps the most extraordinary half year in my life, in Brattleboro, Vermont, in the late ’90s.
A perfect, rich, genuine Southern pecan pie recipe that uses no corn syrup, and some easy chatter about “Just who do you think you are?” with one possible approach to finding an answer: the Johari Window.
Sen. Michael Thibodeau has single-handedly dealt a mortal blow to Ranked Choice Voting. Yes, he’s Senate President and a Republican, but does that entitle him to obstruct the will of the people? Uh uh.
Delicious and tasty chicken wings with Nigerian spices! And some thoughts on the derogatory term “trailer trash,” and people we’ve known who defy the stereotype. (They’re also in three of my four novels as significant characters).

Thoughts on wheels and cams, eccentricity (off-centeredness), and how it affects everything around us.
Brief recollections of writing comedy scripts for serious corporate clients… and a great fluffy cod fritter recipe!
