Do you think that cheddar is cheese, or tea is a beverage that's the British cure for just about everything? Well, clearly you're not woke to the latest reinventions of the English language. But don't despair. Help is here. School may be out, but continuing education knows no season. It's once again time for the annual
I recently read a study that said fun is more fun when it's shared with friends. While this may be something we know instinctively, scientific validation is always reassuring. Now when someone in your group asks "Are we having fun yet?" you can roll your eyes and point to the data. Thus, it was the
So you think you’re woke because you got with the latest meme? Or maybe you understood even one line of the lyrics from "Hamilton?" Would you bet that you know what Bible means? Or salty? Well, save your money! Because if you think salt is a condiment or a crusty old sailor, and Bible refers
Are you familiar with fad-speak? Sure you are. Or do I have to give you a wake-up call? Or tell you it’s time to smell the roses? Or maybe that you need a reality check. Because if we’re on the same page, then you should be having fun yet. Unless you’re having a midlife crisis.

I don’t mean to sound presidential, but I do want to be perfectly clear. I know for a fact that I could have happily lived out the rest of my days without ever having participated in Social Media. Social Media. I find the very name a paradox. Can you imagine anything more antisocial than a
There is nothing that says “old” more than conversing with someone several decades less ancient than you, and having absolutely no idea what they’re talking about. The grammar and syntax seem familiar, but the actual words may as well be Urdu. This could bring tears to the eyes even to those among us with Twitter
I have a confession to make. When I take you into my confidence, I know I risk dropping several points in your estimation of me. You may no longer regard me as one of the “cool” people. (Is it still cool to be regarded as a “cool” person?) But I like to believe that the
Growing older is no excuse for not keeping on top of things! No, this is not a reference to the sexual practices of septuagenarians, but to being in tune with what is happening today!
