Janet Evanovich

Posted on 22 June 2009

“Some men are born to greatness, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.”   When Shakespeare wrote that line, he failed to mention women as well as those who pursue greatness with a single-minded purpose.  But we must forgive him, for not even The Bard could have seen Janet Evanovich coming.  A […]

The Whine and Wine Circle of Trust

Posted on 21 June 2009

You never know what life may throw at you.  Our Whine and Wine get-togethers are not just a bunch of Ladies sitting on a porch getting tipsy and complaining. We are a support group for each other:  a shoulder to cry on, a listening ear, a helping hand.  When one of us is having a […]

Leap of Faith

Posted on 15 June 2009

Have you ever thought that you had a guardian angel?  If so, maybe you came to think about that angel, or perhaps a stroke of great good luck sent your way, when you have narrowly missed having an accident.  Or perhaps it was something not as dramatic as a near-accident; maybe it was something simpler, […]

A Very Spooky Whine and Wine

Posted on 14 June 2009

We get into the strangest conversations at our Whine and Wine gatherings. The particular Whine and Wine that I am about to relate was hosted by Stephanie, our newest member.  She had lost her brother a couple years ago, and as we had been friends with him at one time, the subject of afterlife and […]

Living On The Run

Posted on 10 June 2009

How many of you out there feel like you are always rushing through the day with never a moment to yourselves?  When you are working, do you actually take a real lunch hour?  Or do you grab some junk food from a vending machine or stumble through a checkout line with barely a word to […]
