I don't know about you, but I always have an endless stream on my "to do" list. And despite best intentions I'm forever hopeful I can conquer them all by multitasking. Tapping into my quick energy, I move like a hummingbird, wings all aflutter.But you know what? I usually end up with one big mess; like discovering at 3PM that my breakfast dishes are still in the sink.

I recently read a shocking report on sugar. Don't get me wrong: I love sweet things. Given a choice, I'd much rather have a slab of cake or pie than a chicken breast or bowl of chips.

Well, here I am, almost 56 and so far, I've gotten away with never getting poison ivy. Just about everyone I know has had it at some point.

In case you missed it, there's a photo that's buzzing around these days that is inspiring a LOT of attention - and not negative attention, for a change.No airbrushing, no apologies...a photo in the September issue of Glamour of a plus-sized model baring her body without any sort of self-consciousness.

Back in May, I wrote about my blood pressure, which started to climb (just like my mother's did) when I hit my 50s, despite a healthy diet and plenty of exercise.Sometimes, heredity speaks louder than actions. Sigh.
