  • Sex and the Zen of Shopping
    Sex and the Zen of Shopping or How to Shop Smart in a Dumb Economy (color edition) A bit like a small child, a book seems to suck all the creative energy right out of your soul.  If you don’t feed it and nurture it all the time, it withers and dies.  That’s where I’ve been – creating and rearing my book-child “Sex and the Zen of Shopping” – focusing...

  • Gold Parties are fun, give cash and profit everyone
    One of the hottest new ways to cash in on surplus goods that you have around the house is to hawk your gold jewelry, coins and even teeth at home gold parties happening all over the country.  Patterned after every other home party except for the huge twist of selling instead of buying, you go not to purchase more stuff you don’t need just to please a friend...

  • Gem & Jewelery Show
    Don’t know about you, but I love sparkles. Marilyn taught us that diamonds are a girl’s best friend and, although that just might be a little over the top, I don’t know many women whose eye is not caught by light reflecting off a brilliant stone – real or otherwise. Certainly Vegas is the place to strut your stuff, whether on fingers, belts, sandals...

  • Origin of Mother’s Day
    Ever wonder how we got started with Mother’s Day? Cynics believe it is a huge conspiracy started by Hallmark to promote additional sales of greeting cards, a movement quickly reinforced by the chocolate and florist industires. But truth is, although there has been collosal commercial advantage to the holiday, it has its roots in the efforts of Julia Ward Howe who...

I admit that I am used to a vast display of local produce, so need to adjust my expectations here in the desert. The Country Fresh Farmers Market in downtown Henderson starts at 11...

  • Compulsive Buying Syndrome
    The data is startling. Nearly 6% of adults in America are unable to resist shopping binges that leave them depressed, anxious and in debt. The interesting part is that men suffer from “buying gone bad” almost as often as women. I haven’t seen very many “Shop til you drop” in men-sized T-shirts, but apparently the problem is there; it just...
