Channel 1 New York

i am very excited to share that I was interviewed by Cheryl Wills, anchor on N.Y. Channel 1 News. Two minute segment will be shown Oct.31st 8pm. Will run for every 2 hours through Nov.1st. The interview was over 2 hours and edited. Hope I will be proud of myself and my children and grandchildren will too. Here’s hoping.✨🍀💫

I am happy to  report that the interview went very well. Cheryl Wills was wonderful and made me comfortable. In my apartment and took over two hours for a two minute segment. Fortunately not as much about me as it was about  That was the reason for the interview to promote  Stitch…A new concept in Internet Dating. Members must be verified to be on, and therefore eliminating the ease that scammers go on other sites. As I said in the interview, Stitch has integrity.

Working on a new post comparing Tinder to Stitch. Anyone can get on Tinder and they do. Bottom line is I feel safe on Stitch. Always looking for red flags on Tinder and they are flying constantly.

So, I was proud of myself as my family and friends were…. All  very kind in their support and comments.   The head stand was a bit of a bonus on the show and also delighted I was able to call myself, since labels are always used……Vintage…(increasing with value as the years go by.)





Expiration Date On Some Friendships

I am forever grateful for the friends in my life that are my” emotional transfusions.” You  need to weed out and do occasional emotional cleaning as you do in any beautiful garden. When I ran away after my husband died from New Jersey to New York, there were many acquaintances that I no longer felt I had anything in common with. No arguments or fights, not my style, just a letting go process. I know people thought how does one let go of friendships over 50 years. Well, for one they weren’t really true and loved friends, they were acquaintances. I have new friends that I value more than the ones I let go of. It’s not the years, its the quality of the friendship. Not judging them, just the essence of what they represented to me.

I have certain quotes on friendship that mean a great deal, and thought I would share some with you. Hope you see a part of yourself and your friends in them. I absolutely believe that some friends do have an expiration date and you will know when that happens. Quite easy to recognize the red flags. You want your friends to “get you.” The best feeling ever when no judging, just  accepting and loving one another. Showing kindness. Being there. All key elements in what a friendship should be…….and of course respect.

“One of the most beautiful qualities of a true friendship is to understand and be understood.” Lucius Annaeus Seneca

“There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.” Thomas Acquinas

“A friend is what the heart needs all the time.” Henry Van Dyke

“A single rose can be my garden—-a single friend, my world.” Leo Buscaglia

“One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives.” Euripides

“The only way to have a friend is to be one.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow ripening fruit.” Aristotle

“Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.” Albert Camus

It has been proven that when you have friends to share with, you are healthier.

May you all have friends you deserve and deserve you.
