The Diet Diaries

Diet Day 0.  It's the Sunday before my personal D-Day, the Monday on which I have vowed to begin a Diet.  I had not made this a New Year's resolution despite the fact that I have noted some new fat cells ganging up around my middle.  Cut yourself some slack, I told myself.  Body positivity

So when is it safe to eat salad again? That’s the question on the lips of every diet-conscious woman in America.  Which means almost every woman in America. Based on a warning issued about ten days ago by the Centers for Disease Control, romaine lettuce is the latest casualty on the healthy-eating food chain.   The

The Golf Lesson Redux

     Spring break in Connecticut means a visit from the grandkids to South Florida.  Just completed a wonderful week of swimming, shopping, general chaos, and taste-testing every ice cream parlor in Palm Beach County.  No time for a new essay, so I’m reposting.  With my repaired left shoulder ready and able to do my
