#FridayFact – Minister of Loneliness & a Ban on Best Friends?

This goes in the “You can’t make this stuff up” bucket. The U.K. just appointed a Minister of Loneliness to deal with the results of a study that found over 9 million Brits “often or always feel lonely” according to the NY Times (see http://nyti.ms/2BekEDe). At the same time, a British parenting expert supports a ban on “best friends” in school (see http://dailym.ai/2BeMjDZ).

Hmmm. No best friends and more loneliness. Could there by a correlation? I’d love to hear what you have to say about it!

#FunFriday – Annual Christmas Outing

Every year we do our annual Christmas outing to get our tree, a new ornament, and then head into New York City to see all the windows, visit favorite places, and check out the Nutcracker ballet. It’s always a fun day! Here is a video I put together from this year’s outing.

#FunFriday – A visit to the bookstore

As a book lover, walking into a bookstore is an experience for me. Walking around smelling all the books. Seeing all the covers. Checking out what’s on the shelves. I love it and of course, it makes for a long visit. If hubby is with me, he waits patiently. And waits. And waits. This photo shows how he probably feels during all that waiting. LOL! Have a great weekend!

#FunFriday Sexy or not? You pick the teaser!

I’ve always been partial to stories that have a little sexiness because I not only like seeing how the emotional relationship develops in a romance, but where it leads. I also like romances where the hero and heroine are equals in the relationship, supporting and helping each other through tough times. That’s the vibe I was striving for in ONE SUMMER NIGHT. A blend of partnership, sexiness, playfulness and tenderness. So how do I get that point across? Take a look at these teasers and let me know which one you prefer. The top one or the bottom or both? Which one grabs you?
