Lo! She lives. She writes. She has a wicked sense of humor and a barbed tongue, and if you plan to cross her, make sure to get insurance quotes first. You just may need ’em.

Are you adding flowers to your yard this summer? I am, and I wish I had seen this list of the most beautiful flowers before I spent all my money. So far, I have planted Easter Lilies, Stargazer Lilies, a gardenia and JFK rose. I have Sweet William seeds in peat pellets, and I want a few more things this season.

oooh! Magnetic words, internet style.

The very beautiful Marilyn Monroe.

Beautiful food. You will never see fruit the same way again.

Finally, have a scientific tattoo. If you are going to be silly enough to mark yourself up forever, you might as well look smart doing it. And actually, I just thought of a tattoo I would be willing to get, and then it slipped my mind looking at all those. Sigh.
