When I was growing up, my family had a book called “How are you Peeling?” It was full of pictures like the one above (which I love). I can’t look at them without smiling. The other day I found this squash at the store. It fits my mood today. Smile.
Brady and I have had a busy summer. Here are some of the highlights. A few weeks ago we took a much-needed vacation to Maui, along with my family. I had never been to Maui, and Brady had never been anywhere in Hawaii, so it was a good adventure for us.

At least in tennis. Brady and I celebrated Valentine’s day this year by going to the SAP Open in San Jose. We got super-awesome seats to watch Andy Roddick. That’s us before the first match started.

To paraphrase Tony…read more

Dogs on snowboards, ducks living in a penthouse suite on top of a luxury hotel, the world’s largest whoopie pie… (You may not know this…but there are actually several states in the U.S. that lay claim to the world’s largest whoopie pie. This one was made earlier this year in Maine.) So this week, I hopped on one of the newsroom computers to work on a story and found these. They’re called “Anti-theft lunch bags,” and they can instantly turn your…read more
