Ho Ho Ho! Happy Merry Blessed Christmas

Myammy! Moving in together at 50...

May all your Christmas wishes come true!

Have more fun this Holiday Season and Reach out and touch Someone

Hey, kids! Try this at home  (and away from home) 

Say ‘Merry Christmas’ to everyone.

I say, “Bah, humbug!” to the bland, vanilla, PC “Happy Holiday” malarkey.

Take it up a notch, say “Merry Christmas” to the people on the bus, in line at Dunkin Donuts/Starbucks, the doorman, the waitress, barista, the Lyft driver, the salesclerk, the bus driver, the people in the elevator and everyone! What goes around…

So much sadness…


Throughout history, it has been the inaction

of those who could have acted;

the indifference of those who should have known better;

the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most;

that has made it possible for evil to triumph.

We drank beer

We liked beer.

All dressed up and nowhere to go? Party on


There were four other single girls living in the Nob Hill apartment building. We agreed to throw “Singles Parties” and get to know more people ( read: men) and explore San Francisco hot spots. We wasted time thinking up a clever name for our coterie. Fueled by trendy Blonde Beer, we came up with a half-dozen funny names and decided – “BTBW” (Born to be Wild) was cute and catchy. 

Twice a month, we casually invaded the living room in the building. We sent out invites with BYOB as the lead. We provided light  snacks, music and introductions.

We had four theme parties a year and discovered everyone loved dressing up for Halloween. We also decided to take it to the streets and started Trick or Treating on Clement Street. Our goal was to meet at least one fun person to invite to join us.

No problem! Fast learners, we discovered, people want to be invited…many are reticent and shy. We became the Party Planners du jour. Our Annual Soiree by Invite Only is a much sought after invite – ferry to Sausalito, Kickoff at Spinnakers, Wine Tasting in two bars on the water and dinner at a secret restaurant.

Eventually, each of us met Mr. Right.

Quack! Quack! Doctor LookOut

Beware the Florida Scammers posing as Dr’s

Myammy! Moving in together at 50...


New in Town and Looking For a New Doctor

Abby M. moved to Florida from the Other Coast and searched high and low for a new Internist. She said she scoured the Blue Shield /Blue Cross Directories and knew she didn’t want a Russian or a South American physician.

Feeling like Goldilocks  She did her due diligence: one Dr was too far away, one was too old, one was too strange. Then she found Dr Bill. He scored well on ‘Health Grades’.

There is no Yelp for Doctors in Florida. Why?

She found the medical building in a strip mall and walked into the office. There were posters taped to the walls. The tape was peeling. There was a display case with odd and ends of vitamins. The receptionist had very, very, long  purple nails. Her braided hair was a shade of red-orange-ish. Her skin was brown and leathery. She didn’t…

Listen to other women: we tell all

While volunteering at the San Francisco’s Film Festival, I had a coffee break with another woman  (Note: a lot of women volunteer at film festivals.)

And we instantly discovered we had dated the same Lothario.

Months before, we had both been on She started her dating debacle story about Philip, “the millionaire chef.”

I told her I, had also dated  “the chef.” Four dates into our tryst…he announced to he was off to Kenya for Safari and would be back in three months.Never heard from him again.  No loss, no magic.

Chef told her he was going helicopter skiing in Gstadd and would be be back in 2 months.

She never heard from him again – so she googled the guy.

She discovered not a trace-despite elaborate stories about his famous San Francisco family. Nothing could be found.

The so-called “chef” disappeared until he didn’t and he was back on Really?

Gigi – of unlimited funds and insatiable curiosity, hired a private detective-only to learn  “the Chef” was a Tenderloin Tenant,  not a Nob Hill resident… more of a transient than a chef extraordinaire. In reality, he was a weaver of web lies of extraordinary proportion.

I had moved on and was a delightful romance with a dancer, Baseball writer, who earned his keep ghostwriting biographies for jilted politicians wives.  He was making a killing.

GiGi …Felt it was her duty to warn other women of the lying chef-the Weaver of lies.Ladies, it’s what we do women, we talk.
