We have a talent for getting it backwards and ignoring the important issues and worrying endlessly about things of no consequence. I enjoy identifying the latter to callers and telling them to keep their money in their wallets and get on with other endeavors.

Dating dilemmas

Although it is nearly 20 years since I met my future (American) husband in England and began dating him, I was reminded about this time in our relationship when we recently entertained a lovely young couple in our home.
