Has anyone been experiencing blog problems after updating to WordPress 4.3? I have, plus — adding insult to injury — I often get an error page instead of the READ THIS FIRST WordPress 4.3 Master List for troubleshooting. If you do manage to get to that page successfully, take screenshots for yourself, because it might […]

It’s my birthday today and I do declare that the vintage Jacques Tiffeau dress I wore to dinner at the Four Seasons tonight might be as old as I am. I haven’t owned it my whole life, of course. I bought it in 2009 — from eBay, I think. What Wendy Wore Dress: Vintage Jacques […]

It’s my gorgeous mother BarbaraB’s birthday today, and I’ll celebrate by sharing this great photo of her. I believe this is from the mid-1980s. I know I remember that green shirt! Mom has always been a style icon.

It’s Madonna’s 56th birthday today and in honor of the big event I did something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time — photograph as many of my Madonna tour t-shirts as I could find. Here is Henry the dog inspecting 14 concert shirts. The oldest shirt is from 1990, in the top […]

A couple of weeks ago, the New York Times published an amusing piece by Tim Kreider called, “A Man and His Cat.” It’s about being a Crazy Cat Guy, which Kreider was, even if, unlike me, he didn’t post photos of his cat online. (He did sing to his though.) While reading the essay, I […]

OMG! It’s my gorgeous sister Terri Berry‘s birthday today! In honor of Terri’s birthday falling on a Throwback Thursday, one of her favorite photos. It’s from July 1987. Terri took — and still takes! — great pride in the big hair she achieved that day. In the ’80s, we were all about “bigger is better” […]

GeorgeB’s big birthday on Saturday was a lot of fun. After the celebratory dinner, Terri Berry and I lined up with Dad for an updated version of our 1989 birthday photo. Then we gave him kisses … … which inspired his sons-in-law to do the same. My mom and nephew got in on the kissing […]

My handsome father, GeorgeB, is turning 75 today. The family is getting together for a celebration. GeorgeB is expecting us this time, unlike in 1989, when we threw him a surprise 50th birthday party. Back then, there seemed to be an eternity between me and 50.  Now it’s around the corner. Saying “time flies” doesn’t […]

I’m going to be drowning my sorrows in Champagne tonight because it is, indeed, my birthday. As I’ve previously noted, I don’t think birthdays are that much fun anymore, even though they’re better than the alternative.  I was much more thrilled by them when this photo was taken … on Dec. 23, 1984, when I […]
