Never get bored with salads!

There’s this stigma running around for thousands of years, tying between salads and dieting women. “oh me? I’ll have the salad!” (then most movies-books- TV series depict said woman looking sadly at her plate and -if given the opportunity- helping herself to her companion’s plate.) We all understand the “subtle ” subtext: Salad is not …

“I’ll start saving when I have serious money”.

*Before I start- the disclaimer thing- I am not a financial expert, banker or related in any way to Elon Musk. I have done my research-go do yours. Your money should matter to you- because it is the key to your financial freedom-AKA- your freedom. If you happen to be one of those unicorns and …

Why bother making your bed every morning?

“Organized people always make their beds first thing in the morning!” Well sure- I know that. But why?? I mean- Your’e going to mess it up again come evening, and assuming no one (such as, for instance- you mother in law) is coming for a (thorough) visit -and you don’t mind – Then why not …

The cheapest, greenest, most effective ant deterrent ever!

Fitbit Inspire2 : was it worth buying?

Before I start- you need to know I have no shares in Fitbit- or in any other fitness devices for that matter, and neither do I get anything for free from any store -online or otherwise. I also do not review anything for a living-nor am I a tech whiz (oh-so far far from it, …

The lessons I learned from a cat…

All my life, I avoided cats. Simply had nothing to do with them. I was sure I was a dog person- and I was also sure that this is an either/ or situation. Cats do have that distancing spoiled self sureness about them- they always look as if they are doing you a favor by …

Getting to know your Bran new friend.

Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin- in the movies.

I was about 16 when I saw “Amadeus”. Wasn’t a big fan of classical music back then, although coming from a polish-Russian heritage, I was forced to “play” the piano for a few years -until I got the courage to say- “No” , but the movie left such an impression on me -that I began …

When life gives you organic lemons-make “cheese” cake with them!

If there’s one thing everyone agrees on it’s that lemons are good for you. I mean- you can squeeze them over fresh salads. you can squeeze them over boiled or pan fried veggies. you can squeeze them into sauces (my simplest most effective salad dressing includes half a lemon, a drizzle of olive oil, salt(pink …
