I said I wasn’t going to do it; that I wasn’t going to comment on the controversial, condemned but yet celebrated personality we call Michael Jackson.

(Style on a Dime) Take a step back in time and enjoy a drive-in movie

(Style on a Dime) Take a step back in time and enjoy a drive-in movieDo you remember back in the “olden days,” as my children refer to it, when people used to go to drive-in movies?  Remember the ‘sound system’ that you had to clip on to your window, the foggy windows, and the mosquitoes?  Those times were so much fun (not the mosquitoes!).  I remember that during one of our drive-in outings, mama looked over her shoulder at me and said, “Lie down on the seat and cover your ears, because this part is bad!”  I am assuming she did not want me to have any nightmares from the scary or bloody parts.  All I know is that lying down on the back seat every now and then was a small price to pay to get to enjoy all that popcorn and candy!

WASHINGTON (NNPA) - National health reports conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say that the average American woman is 5’4” in height, weighs approximately 164 pounds, and wears a size 14. In fact, 68 percent of American women are now considered “plus-sized,” making the announcement by Crain’s New York Business, that the nation’s recession had caused national retailers, including some major chains, to discontinue women’s plus sizes to save money, shocking to many.

(Style on a Dime) Three good excuses for having a summer party

My family will be hosting a summer party soon.  Unlike every other party we have ever thrown, I have to confess that I am not looking forward to hosting this particular party --let me explain.  In a couple of weeks, my husband’s best friend since they were in fourth grade, John, and his family (five children, one wife) will be moving  from Minneapolis to Germany. Although I have known for two years that this day would be coming at this time, somehow I am feeling unprepared for the loss of these wonderful friends.

(Style on a Dime) Keeping school skills sharp in summer

I have truly enjoyed my first couple of weeks of summer vacation --the sleeping in, the slower pace, and no homework. I feel like I did nearly as much homework as my children this past school year (although they probably wouldn’t agree).  Our biggest challenge was math.  My daughter struggled and my husband and I (mainly my husband) spent a lot of time helping her.
