Life 101 – Talented Friends

One of my Secrets to a Happy Life is “celebrating the talents of others.” And I love that I have some talented friends. Congrats to Paul S.

What I’m Doing – My Next Book

After the fun of our last book, my pal Westminster has been working (for treats!) to help me finish my new book. And he’s cracking himself up. The new book has already got tongues wagging in NY gossip columns, but won’t be out until March. More on that soon…. In the meantime, Westminster wanted […]

Gardening 101 – Vineyards

Scott and I planted a vineyard at Edgewater Farm two years ago and […]

What I’m Doing – Modeling!

Okay, two #didyouknow about me in a week… one more, and we’ll have a trend. But I did some modeling today. Well, Westminster and I did. We took shots for a marketing campaign of my favorite bank: Ulster Savings Bank. I’ll show and tell when that is done, but for now, I got a […]

Pet Fun – The Rubber Chicken

A gorgeous day in New York City brought lots of people to the park, including Westminster, his rubber chicken, and me. Without fail, when we take the rubber chicken for a walk, we get attention and, more, we make people smile, laugh, (and point.) In turn, we have a good time. Wes even seems […]
