All right Mr. DeMille, I am ready for my close-up

Another great event!  Lisa and I took an acting lesson and it was so much fun. I will tell you what I liked and what I did not like.  I liked that it was a real class – not a bunch of vocal exercises and “show me your sad face” but it was doing scenes, … Continue reading »

I Can Sing!

Well, sort of.  I’m not delusional enough to think that I actually have a pretty voice or even a pleasing voice.  I just surprised myself that the dogs weren’t howling when I “sang” a scale.  Taking a singing lesson was tops on Erin’s list.  I was game because I figured that I was so bad, … Continue reading »

The Hills are alive…

with the sound of music.  The hills of Manhattan Beach that is!  Ok, so it will become pretty clear, pretty quickly that I was the one pushing for this week’s We Never.  Lisa and I took a voice lesson!  And as always, there is good news and there is bad news.  The good news is … Continue reading »

Miles Outside My Comfort Zone

I’m so far out of my comfort zone, I can’t even see it anymore.  It must be lost somewhere with my dignity.  This past week’s “We Never,” a Korean Akasuri body treatment, truly pushed me beyond what I would have ever done – allowing a very slight woman to annihilate every dead skin cell on … Continue reading »

New meaning to “Open your kimono!”

Where do I begin. I can tell you how it ends – with me, completely naked, shiny like an apple, standing in front of a 65 year old woman in black lace granny panties and matching bra, shaking hands.  Shame I did not capture this moment with a picture for our photo album. Part of me just … Continue reading »

Color Me Crazy

Someone asked me the other day what I’ve learned from doing “We Never” so far.  What I told her was that aside from getting to do some really cool things, I have loved the interesting people we’ve met – people we would have never come across if not for our “We Never’s.”  And that was … Continue reading »

“Jazz Hands!”

OK, so let’s start with telling you what Reiki is:  the belief that you can transfer universal energy (i.e. reiki) through the palms, which allows for self-healing and equilibrium.  Translation: a woman waves her hands over you without touching you and by doing this, eliminates your “static” and makes you happier.   Think Tom Cruise in … Continue reading »

Just “Plane” Scared

Last Thursday I woke up in a sweat.  Yes, I know, at my age there could be another source for nighttime sweats but this time it was just good old-fashioned happens-at-every-age fear.  What if the pilot has a heart attack mid-flight?  Or some necessary part falls to the earth (arriving right before we do)?  What … Continue reading »

Come Fly with Me, Come Fly, Come Fly Away…

Another winning week!  Thanks to Groupon, we got a deal to have Lisa and I take a flight over Los Angeles and give us both an opportunity to fly the plane. I have to admit, I thought this would be fun but my expectations were low (it cost too little to be what they say, they are … Continue reading »
