burbfam-240x238-brandIt was very sudden. My husband decided we should take a trip. When he first mentioned it I came back at him with a list of reasons we shouldn’t go, beginning with “We have two children in university” and ending with, “We have two children in university.” In addition, I’m a planner, one of those people who enjoy the anticipation of a vacation, packing and repacking several times before a trip.  But he was adamant the two of us get away, so a couple of days later we were on a plane to Cuba.  I told my boss if my husband came back without me, to make sure there was an investigation.

weber-logo1I’ve been married 24 years, and during those two-plus decades I’ve traveled twice with my wife to the Bahamas, once on our honeymoon and again the following year.

Fast-forward another ten vacation-less years.  I left a job that was threatening a pay cutback, breathed life into my own company, pulled the plug on its life-support during the 90’s recession then rewarded myself after finishing Teachers’ College with a four-day vacation to Vegas.

It rained for three days.

Killed By Nutbar, Not The Web

Why are we always so quick to demonize the web?

Dude meets stranger in the bar. Have drinks, yap a bit, and agree to go back to a private setting for sex. It has been done that way since the dawn of drinking in bars. It has always been dangerous, it has always had the risk of violence, and it has always been the first object of social networking anywhere and at anytime. Sex. In a private place. Mostly.

With the internet and social networking phenomenon like Facebook, MySpace, and a host of others, the “dating” ritual is safer by magnitudes.

Prior to “hooking up”, people can now get a far better picture of a “stranger” with only a name to go by. They can see who their friends are, what kind of music they like, where they live, work, and go to school. All really important stuff if you are going to meet a stranger in a dark place, alone. At worst, it saves you wasting your time, and at best it can save your life.

The media always wants to vilify the net at every opportunity, however if they – or law enforcement – want to help the public, they would urge greater use and understanding of the information available on the web.

Practicing for the Big One… March 19, 2009

burbfam-240x238-brandThis party was a long time coming. I had looked forward to Christmas, but was sick over the holidays.  I looked forward to New Years Eve, but was just getting over a terrible cold. My husband was sick the entire month of February. Like I said, this party was long overdue. Even my friends were in need of some fun, and urged me to have a birthday bash.

 No, it wasn’t a BIG birthday milestone, which was the question of the day. I am two years shy of ‘the big one’, but thought it would be good practice.  There were thirty some people in our small house. The music was blaring, there was good food, great conversation and lots of dancing and drinking going on.

burbfam-240x238-brandI was shocked when it was reported that pop star Rihanna had been physically assaulted by boyfriend and fellow celebrity singer, Chris Brown. I listened to the 911 calls and like everyone, was sickened by the photos of her injuries splashed all over the Internet.

Shock turned to sadness and disappointment, however, when I heard she had reunited with Brown, despite the experts telling her if he hit you once, he’ll hit you again.

burbfam-240x238-brandMy grandmother used to say, “There’s a lid for every pot,” meaning there was someone out there for everyone. That may be the case, but it seems to me, finding that ‘lid’ is much harder these days.

 I have a couple of divorced girlfriends who could tell you horror stories about dates gone bad. But the hardest part of being single they say, is actually finding a date in the first place.
