Competing in the San Francisco Fight For Air Climb was certainly a highlight of last weekend, but the weekend had lots of fun stuff – and the stairs at 101 California weren’t even the only stairs I climbed!
Check out the view from these public stairs! Gorgeous. These are the Read the rest of this entry »

I’m back from San Francisco, where, for the third year in a row, I competed in the American Lung Association’s Fight For Air Climb. While three-peating here might make me a veteran, this year’s race was new, thanks to a change in venue.

I’ve thought that once already, on Friday, when I was feeling pretty good. But then I woke up on Saturday a sneezy, snotty mess. Now, as I type this, I’m feeling like I did on Friday… and keeping my fingers crossed that I won’t regress again.

I love stairs so much… sometimes they make me dance!
That’s not just any dance, though. I’m recreating some moves seen on a brand new T.J. Maxx commercial, which features a model dancing on the very same step where I’m standing: Read the rest of this entry »

I love kitchen and food-related infomercials, and my kitchen cabinets have their share of infomercial products. From Richard Simmons Steam Heat to the RediSetGo, I’ve been tempted many times but television products that promise to make my life so much easier. And I was recently tempted again.
