One Month, 3 Aus Spots. Making My Way Through Australia

It’s been six fab months since I moved to Sydney, Australia from New York City. That old adage “time flies when you’re having fun” is apparently quite true because it seems, in some ways, that I just got here.  So many things still feel shiny-and-new. At the top of my to-do list while living here is … Continue reading

My New Life in Oz – One Month In

So, I gave up (temporarily) my New York City life for a new one in Sydney, Australia. My arrival in Sydney was safe, but not uneventful. Sometime after take-off, the entire plane was awakened to learn that we would be spending the night in Vancouver, Canada…not part of the plan, at all. It had something to … Continue reading

T-Minus Two Months: Countdown to Oz

So now that my move to Australia is definitely happening and I have a signed contract and a (tentative) start date, it’s sinking in what this really means:  I have 1000 things I need to make happen before I leave. “It’s only slightly overwhelming” I say both confidently and sarcastically.   For the last two years, … Continue reading

Ladies: Man, First –> Education, Second

    Perhaps you’ve seen her on the news recently, or you may remember “Princeton Mom” from her last round of publicity when she stridently advised/warned young college age women that nailing down a husband while in college should take a bit more precedence over actually getting an education.  Well, she’s at it again…louder and bolder.  … Continue reading

Fun With #SinglesInAmerica

Last week I attended Match.com‘s annual presentation of its survey results on single life in the USA. I went, not so much that I care a lot about the survey findings, but because it was hosted by my friend, Sherri Langburt of Single Edition Media, and her team always puts on a fun event. And this … Continue reading

Nice Guy. Where’d You Meet Him?

I hate online dating…most of the time.  Too many of the guys who contact me clearly haven’t read my profile, or maybe they just assume they know more about what I want than I do.  So, when I say I want a non-smoker, the smoker reaches out to me, anyway.  Though my profile says I want … Continue reading

Two Spinsters in South Dakota

For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to visit Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone Park . After years of begging people to go with me and having no luck, I learned that my friend, Colleen, had a similar yearning. So we coordinated our calendars, booked our trip, packed up the dogs, and headed out West. … Continue reading

Why Do We Need “National Singles Week”???

Why do we need National Singles Week?  We probably don’t really need it, but I must admit that I really like that it’s become a “thing”. The proper name is National Single and Unmarried Americans Week, which is a little bit of a mouthful, so I hope I don’t offend by shortening it. National Singles Week … Continue reading

Surviving The Heat With Red Mango Frozen Yogurt and Smoothies

I was invited to participate in a promotion for Red Mango’s Frozen Yogurt and SuperBiotics Smoothies, and it’s just in time.  New York City –and especially Manhattan, where I live– is mostly tall buildings and concrete and when it’s hot, there’s nowhere for the heat to go.  It can be stifling. So now that summer is upon … Continue reading

Diane Keaton “Comes Around” To Being Single

Diane Keaton has always been a spinster-I-admire . I like her work and her personality and she always seemed to be happy with her life. So I was a little surprised to read some of her thoughts about being “always single”.    She has come to accept…even embrace being single, though it took her awhile (like, most … Continue reading

Fab Friday Favs: Getting Fit

I don’t like working out.  I’m still waiting for an injection (safe) to be developed that will make me healthy and fit while I’m sprawled on the couch watching this week’s DVR’d tv shows.  I’ve been waiting for this for a long, long time so, in the meantime, I’m doing the next best thing.  About a … Continue reading

Ann Curry…The Last Laugh?

This post isn’t about being single, but it is about being a woman because I really think if the main character in this story had been a man, the folks in charge would have figured out a better way to handle the whole situation. Remember when Ann Curry got fired from the Today Show this past … Continue reading

When “Why Aren’t You Married” Becomes “Why Aren’t You Single”

By now, we all know about the rise in single people and that, for the first time in U.S. history, there are more single people than there are married people.   Interestingly, this increase in single people is not just a U.S. phenomenon: single households have increased 30% worldwide.   It looks like everybody is catching … Continue reading

Travel Tuesday: What Happens in Atlantic City… (with Apologies to Vegas)

I had a blast this past weekend.  I joined five girlfriends in Atlantic City to celebrate Lora’s birthday.  It was so much fun in every way and, for me, speaks to the power of good friends. We’ve all been friends for 20+ years and have managed to stay together even though life has taken us in … Continue reading
