I first met Dr. Ja’net Bishop, author of “How Much Joy Is In Your Journey? A Creative Guide To Your Fearless Vision,” through a Center for Women event. A native New Yorker, she is energetic and insightful and wants to help people create more of a “life-work” balance as we are all more than j…

Last fall, I went to Cuppa Manna with my blues musician beau, Ron Gill. That’s where I met Paul Pietrofeso — tough name to pronounce. I always love it when I meet more blues musicians here. Pietrofeso, of the Paul Stone Project, plays area gigs either as a soloist, as part of a duo, or with …

Like most of you, I’m frequently contacted by Nigerian royalty who want to send me $2 million USD if I will wire $10,000 to prove my worthiness. (One princeling said it was to satisfy his skeptical accountant, who wasn’t nearly as skeptical as yours truly.)
