The bad news is that our family has been so busy [...]

By: Roxy on 08/2/09 @ 5:08 pm

Over on  my Roxiticus Desperate Housewives blog, I’ve decided to chronicle my latest 90-day-plan to a lifetime of diet and fitness (I’m actually about two weeks in with my 43rd birthday approaching as a milestone in October).  While my most loyal readers can say they’ve heard this song and dance before when I try to [...]

Looking for Clues: Is There A Fluoride Shortage in the United States?

By: Roxy on 11/26/08 @ 11:58 pm

It’s all I can do to keep up with the bizarre fluctuations in gasoline prices, nevermind what appears to be a national shortage of fluoride. In October 2003, our family left New York City, where there’s flouride in the city water, and moved to the Roxiticus Valley , where we have well water and with [...]

Luck Be A Lady Tonight: One Amazing Afternoon at the Far Hills Races

By: Roxy on 10/18/08 @ 9:15 pm

They call you Lady Luck.
But there is room for doubt
At times you have a very unladylike way of running out
You’re on this a date with me
