    Happy February What a great month –- First the Super Bowl and a BIG congratulations to Tommy and the Bucs (not Benny and the Jets). And second, let’s hear it for Valentine’s Day, the only day of the year (other than your birthday) when chocolates have absolutely zero calories, so if you go for a hike, even munching chocolates as you tromp the trails, you’ll lose a couple of pounds. What more could you ask? Well, there’s red or yellow (my fav) roses, a clever card, and if you’re female, your other half owes you a half-day servitude. Valentine’s Day is definitely for the female half of the population. Guys, suck it up.

    I don’t think any of us will ever forget the day we get our first vaccine shot. Will we drive up, stick our arm out the window, visit the dentist and beg him/her not to give us the vaccine shot in the gums, or visit our grocery store, not for the flu shot this time, but for the life-saving stuff to keep us dancing on the planet?

    What's the difference between the Christmas alphabet and the ordinary alphabet? The Christmas alphabet has noel.

    GREAT NEWS: I sent VORTEX, the 25th FBI, to my editor last Tuesday. YEA! And guess what? Because I'm certifiable, I've already started writing the 5th novella in Grayson Sherbrooke's Otherworldly Adventures. Santa should be pleased with me, or give me valium.

    NFL Football has gone amazingly well, considering all the pitfalls. Who do you think will visit Tampa for the Super Bowl?

    So many of you have told me you went directly from Halloween to Christmas –- a fantastic idea – or, like me, do both Thanksgiving and Christmas at the same time. There’s no reason to wait to bring out the bright Christmas decorations, the multi-colored lights strung up on the front of the house, maybe even a couple of reindeer and an inflatable Santa.

    October is a grand month. Air is crisp (some of you even already have snow, yipes!), leaves so vivid you just stand and stare, and to top it all off there’s Halloween. Since it’s such a bizarre year, I expect all of you to go all-out with decorations, spinning crazy and fun scenes with pumpkins, bats, candles and witches. For inspiration, take a look at the three Moron Pumpkin Heads in front of Morticia and Gomez. For my Halloween bubble party, I have twelve pounds of assorted candies, both fattening for those I don’t particularly like, and sugar free for good friends.
