Confessions of an 80s Hair Spray Addict

  I have a confession I really hate to admit – I was one of the worst contributors who helped tear a massive hole in the ozone layer in the mid to late 1980s.   I was an 80s hair spray addict, as were most of my peers.   Being teenage girls in the 1980s, we loved our big cans of Aqua Net and Rave as we curled, crimped and teased our hair and pulled our bangs up to the crazy “mall-bang” trend teen pop artists like Debbie Gibson and…

Digging in the Dirt: Fall Mood 2018

  Sometimes life gets frustrating beyond reason.   I feel like I’ve been rebuilding, rebranding, and restructuring my life for the past eight years. I’ve even referred to my life as one of those kids friction cars that you pull back a few times to rev it up, then when you let go, it goes speeding off — except that I’ve been revving for years it seems with no release in sight.   “Every job I’ve had adds to my skill set and when I finally figure it all out,…
