Yes, Virginia, There is Skiing In Indiana...

Jan 16, 2012 by

2011 was the year of going back to basics for me. I went back to tap dancing, back to tech marketing and back to downhill skiing. I gave up downhill skiing 16 years ago when I got married. My husband didn’t ski so I took up spectator college basketball – college basketball is one of his passions as he got a full-ride scholarship to play college basketball and later, he became a radio sportscaster doing play-by-play college basketball – he didn’t ask me to give it up but I wanted us to be able to do something together. Of course, that was early in our marriage. I was just a kid then. Ha Ha. A few months ago, I decided I missed skiing too much and decided I wanted to get back into it....

Cracking The Code

Jan 5, 2012 by

I was thinking about what I was going to write about for my first week of 2012 article. I was going to do a fitness article but my recent great find in Louisville, Still Spinnin, this kick-ass, rocking spin studio, is closed until January 2nd. And I will be doing a skiing article about my Indiana ski adventure later in the week.  So, I decided that this article is all about gratitude, abundance and my constant strive to get things done on my timetable, but I’ve never been able to get that to work in my favor, so I’ve decided to give up the ghost on that one. There are a few things I don’t believe in. I don’t believe in regrets – we make choices and life is all about living with those choices...

Susyn And The City

Nov 30, 2011 by

Ok, so I’m not Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda or Samantha, but I did have a blast in New York City earlier this month. I was in town to film a web series in New York City. It’s a fun web series called Which Way, whose logline is described as a cross between Fame and Saved By The Bell. I play the mother of the lead character. The role is ongoing so I will be back to Gotham to film more soon. I will let you all know when the web series is available for viewing. I thought it would be fun to do a trip diary. November 2-4. I flew into LaGuardia on November 2. After a rehearsal on November 3, I was ready to get to set. On Friday, November 4, I arrived on...

Thanks Mom

Nov 24, 2011 by

Thanksgiving has been a take it or leave it holiday for me. When my dad was alive, my mother would make a huge Thanksgiving Day feast – she made the best stuffing with oysters. It was very good. (I could never duplicate that recipe even though I credit my mother with my skills as a good cook and my perfection with making a bed with hospital corners and a tidy house). After my father passed away and my mother came to live with my husband and me, our tradition was going out to eat at usually a fancy place (that was my indulgence considering I cooked for Christmas – I LOVE to cook and bake for Christmas  – you should see the spread I usually put out). Even though my husband and I ventured...

The Anti-Techie

Oct 19, 2011 by

For my first post, I’m delving into one of my favorite topics, technology.  I’ve been involved with high-tech really since college. I am dating myself when I say that because when I worked on computers in college, I had to go to the computer center and my research was printed on these ridiculous computer cards that I had to carry with me. Ugh. Yuck. Definitely not sexy. The past few weeks I have felt like I have been kicked in the gut as my business compass, Steve Jobs, died. 56, man. What’s really eery is that my dad died when he was 56. So, I really feel for his son, Reed, who is 20, the same age I was when my dad died. Well, I digress. Honestly, I don’t think he has been well...
