Age gracefully in Marin County? Maybe

Suddenly Single in Marin

Deena, (70 – admits to being 55) is an ex-flight attendant.

She readily divulges there were a couple of husbands, a few boyfriends, a sweetheart or two, a fling here and there. And there. She says there were a handful of beaus – and way too many bozos.

She used to say, quite frankly, she needed a man in her life. She simply did not want to be alone.

In the beginning…

 She was the prom queen, homecoming queen, Miss Beckworth County, Miss Dairy, then, she landed the career of a lifetime: Flight Attendant. All of her friends said that she had the most fabulous job in the world. They all wanted to know about pilots, the Mile High Club, playboys and all those glamorous destinations she got to visit. Lucky, Deena!

Time marches on…

Life, age, and gravity have all taken a toll. Deena is always on the lookout for any facsimile of…

So many bad First Dates

Top 10 
Worst First Dates

Every week, readers send in stories about their Worst First Dates. Dating profiles sometime contain Trumped Up truths, flawed, fake and bogus claims. First dates turn into nightmares when fiction writers on dating sites embellish- or choose not to tell- the truth.

Big Time Top Ten ‘Worst First”

1.    You are so buff: He said he was a film buff; he revealed the naked truth: he’s a nudist. The Naked Truth? He thought the movie ‘Buck’ was about Enron.

2.  Doggie Diner?   Her profile picture was of her in a Jaguar XKE. Cool. She drives everywhere with her dog in her lap, hanging out the window.  Her little white yappy dog is her constant companion. 24/7. Buzz kill.

3.    Room with a view He said he lived in San Francisco in an avant-garde space; Truth: lives in a cargo container. With roommates.

4.   Photo Shopping Her picture was hot. Really hot. Two emails later, they met at the famed House of Coffee and he didn’t recognize her. Evidently, the picture was either very Photo-shopped, airbrushed, and/ or over 10 years old.

5.    How neat! He went to her home to pick her up; the first clue were the two beat up cars in the front yard. There is no polite-term for the ‘dump’ she lived in. Pit Bulls were barking in the side yard. He said he left after five minutes claiming allergies. Shallow? The ‘total slob’ traits are a deal killer.

6.  Would it kilt you to laugh?  He said he loved eclectic clothing. He wears kilts -often. Deal breaker: his legs were better than yours.

7.    Eharmony said he was her best match. His profile picture was cute and they met for coffee. Turns out, they had nothing in common (he liked Rick Perry and Sarah Palin) then he revealed he raised mules -not just any mules – professional mules. Buzz kill 101.

8.      They connected on First, she was flattered by his calls and emails. Then she was  confused and  impressed; he drove 100 miles for the first date. Finally, she was shocked he thought (post long drive) he would spend the night. Good night, Irene!

9.   Cane and Not Able: She said she was 50, in shape, and liked hiking. On the first date they met at Muir Woods. He arrived with water, snacks and walking sticks, she came on a cane and was over 30 pounds heavier than her photo. Painful date? It was like walking the Appalachian Trail. In the dark. Blindfolded.

10.    Mr. Tall Dark Handsome, with a brand-new Porsche, said he was divorced and single. She was, too. On date number three, he laughingly admitted to have been married five times. He said he wasn’t afraid of commitment. Buh bye.

To Tell the Truth: “Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.”Einstein

Recycle your old boyfriend and girl friends- yea Earth Day

Recycle bags, bottles, and beaus. Who are the Real Heroes of Recycling? Today’s Top Three:

1. Fire and Light in Arcata recycles tons of old glass and fashions it into glorious rainbow colored plates, bowls, goblets, and candlesticks.

2. Whole Foods takes those villainous old plastic bags and recycles them into colorful, durable, use- for- a- lifetime shopping bags. Check out the leaps and bounds Whole Foods is making to keep the planet green.

3. Karyn, the social maven of Marin, throws an annual ‘Singles Romantic Recycle Earth Day Celebration’. She rolls out the green carpet; she conserves water and serves wine; she encourages everyone into the pool: arrive by carpool. Party favors are tiny redwoods seedlings. The colorful invitation, printed on recycled paper is printed with vegetable dye reads: BYOB – bring your old Boyfriend or Babe.

The Green Party

Party goers must come in couples. Women bring a man they like and they would like to introduce to other women. Perhaps they once dated and there was affection, but zero chemistry. Guys do the same. Bring a friend – make a friend. The way it works is: friends introduce friends and there is an underlying current of matchmaking and conviviality going on. This is the 5th year Karyn has organized the Romantic Recycling party. You can do the same. Your friends will be green. Invite them to a party and romantically recycle your friends.

Celebrate Earth and mirth.

Marin County has always been Green

It used to be, you couldn’t swing a cat in Marin without hitting a geodesic dome, a commune, a community garden, a hot tub replete with Peacock feathers or a yogurt maker. Times, they are a changing.

Now, everybody’s a little more subtle: a) no more swinging those cats, please and, b) everyone more discreet – composting is quiet.

Need a new Earth Day mantra? Go organic, change out light bulbs to CFLs; buy recycled, reuse; no plastic bottles. Conserve water – drink wine and, be sure to recycle your friends.

Who spent $77 million on golf in 1 year?

Suddenly Single in Marin


“…He called Barack Obama “the vacationer-in-Chief” and accused him of playing more rounds of golf than Tiger Woods.

He promised to never be the kind of president who took cushy vacations on the taxpayer’s dime, not when there was so much important work to be done.

You bought it.

But in his first 9 months he has spent nearly 25 percent of his days at one of his golf properties for some portion of the day, according to Golf News Network, at a cost to taxpayers of an estimated $77 million.


That’s already more taxpayer money on vacations than Obama cost in the first 3 years of his presidency.

Not to mention all the money taxpayers are spending protecting his family, including his two sons who travel all over the world on Trump business.”
