  • 'Mary Poppins' has taught us more than supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

    Let's pause here to honor what's surely one of the best children's movies ever made, musical or otherwise. (Heck, one of the best movies, period.) Let's pause, too, to reminisce about "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" and "Chim chim cher-ee" and "I...
  • When being fair is really not, and other life lessons

    The argument that night had to do with my lap. A comfortable, welcoming lap to be sure, but not one so special as to instigate such a battle. Yet, there I was, babysitting my eldest son's three daughters, and the tears were flowing, the sobs were heaving...
  • A year of struggle teaches valuable lessons

    A year ago, I sat in a dark place, one of those deep and narrow crevices that appears all sharp angles and steep cliffs. If you've lived a few years, offered your heart in sacrifice, it's likely you've plunged headlong into one of these spots. You may...
  • The other battle of the bulge - trying to pack on pounds

    The Hubby claims I'm obsessed with scales. Digital scales and mechanical ones. Scales you find at Publix and the fancy physician scales with the height rod. He's got a point. I can't pass by a scale, whether it's in the gym or at the mall, without...
  • Who's winning the battle of the bugs?

    The Hubby complains that I'm waging an unwinnable war. Every time I sally forth in armor, he grumbles, "Give it up, already." I can't. I won't. If I don't take a stand against the bugs, who else will? What will happen to our way of life? To my plants? To...
  • Being bilingual doubles the pleasure of language

    A parent's work is never done, and my latest mission is a true crusade of the heart. I want my granddaughters, the blondes and the brunettes, the kindergarteners and the crawlers, to learn Spanish. A second language will serve them well in life. In...
  • After the Boston marathon bombing, focus on the heroes

    Amid the bedlam, terror and despair, we must focus on this. We must never forget this: Goodness still abounds. Courage is plentiful. People can be, and often are, heroes. As the surreal video of the Boston Marathon bombing looped over and over on TV, I,...
  • Books: The gift that keeps on giving

    I give books. For birthdays. For Christmas. For baby showers and retirement parties. Even for those you-need-a-little-cheer days that pop up randomly. I give them because they are one of life's great treasures. More than a gift of paper, ink and binding,...
  • A super sibling rivalry

    Everyone I know is busy preparing for the annual Super Bowl blowout, stocking up on beer and browsing through chili recipes. Me, I'm wondering where the elder Harbaughs will sit to watch their sons coach against each other. If you're a parent with more...
  • Forget one-size-fits-all solution to work-family balancing act

    This is a column I long resisted writing. Resisted when a high level State Department official left her job and wrote a controversial piece for The Atlantic magazine headlined, "Why Women Still Can't Have it All." Resisted when Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer...
  • Prejudice still evident

    You may not follow high school basketball or even read the sports pages, but a story unfolding there says plenty about how immigration reform, Washington's hot topic du jour, may play out in the peanut gallery. The Hialeah Gardens High Gladiators...

    PASSINGS: Raul Ramirez, Al Ruscio
    Raul Ramirez Award-winning investigative journalist Raul Ramirez, 67, an investigative newspaper journalist who went on to help build a prominent Northern California public radio news operation, died Friday at home in Berkeley, said San Francisco...
