Through These Doors - The Manoir at Bout L'Abbé by Diane Condon-Boutier

A fascinating story.

MANOR

About the book: If these old walls could talk, would you listen? When a house has a story to tell, historical events to relate and lives to share, it should be given a voice; especially when the house is French and possesses a certain “je ne sais quoi”.

“Through These Doors: the Manoir at Bout L’Abbé” tells of the German occupation of Normandy…

The Divorce War

I am a divorcee. I am also a second wife (the remarriage kind, not the polygamy kind), a stepmom, and a frustrated ex-wife.

Ask anyone who truly knows me: very often, I have to learn things that hard way. Unfortunately, this sometimes comes at the expense of those around me. My poor decisions that led up to my first marriage (which was also a poor decision) created a world that now creates a harsh reality for me and my children. That reality is a split living…

The Debt

Question: When you think of heroines in film - which characters do you think of first? Ripley from Aliens, Clarice from Silence of the Lambs and Sarah Connor from The Terminator are probably the first that jump to mind, right? How about about a 66 year old women? Well, Helen Mirren (and the women who played her character at age 25) just kicked some Nazi-ass in The Debt and it was awesome!

I am not one of the overly feminist gals, trust me. I am all for equality but don't think we are…

A Call to Arms

Gardening is not just a hobby; it is a full-scale war with battalions to lead, enemies to conquer, multiple fronts to manage, and the unpredictable weather that can make or break a battle plan.  It requires, skill, strategic acumen, luck, and a lot of blood, sweat, and tears.

I, of course, am the Supreme Commander of the Allied Gardening Forces.  My army of corn, tomatoes, radishes, zucchini, and other equally important divisions fight daily to produce the most beautiful and luscious…

Adequate Parenting Manifesto

It starts the day you pee on the stick. I’m not talking about that

regrettable Valentine’s gesture toward your partner. The stick from CVS

that is 99.9% accurate, and of which you purchased four.

Test Result: You're pregnant





You pee on the stick and the plus sign shows up. Before you’ve finished washing your hands (wash them!!! Use hand sanitizer!!!!), you’ve been conscripted into a war that you…

Healthy School Birthday Ideas

Healthy Birthday Snack Ideas:



A child’s school birthday celebration should be centered around the child; instead, it has become centered around cupcakes. Parents bring in these unhealthy treats and kids rejoice.

And please, let me know if you have any additional suggestions.

The Cupcake Wars: As Seen in the NY Times (Plus More!)

The Cupcake Wars: As Seen in the NY Times (Plus More!)

Last week, there was an article in the NY Times about Meme Roth and her fight with her children’s school concerning school birthday parties and cupcakes.



What sets her off is the junk food served on special occasions: the cupcakes that come out for every birthday, the doughnuts her children were once given in gym, the sugary “Fun-Dip” packets that some parent provided the whole class on Valentine’s Day.



“I thought… Continue
