Talk2Bev.com & Fabulously40.com Team Up for Valentine's Day

I'm convinced that some men really need help when it comes to knowing how to please their mates on Valentine's Day. And I've decided to help them, along with some help from Fabulously40.com and a few hundred women.

This year I'm teaming up with Fabulously40.com to sponsor the First Annual Baby Boomer Valentine's Day Contest in which baby boomer women will be submitting their thoughts and ideas on what a man needs to do in order to sweep the love of his life off of her feet and give her the most romantic day imaginable.

The judges are five baby boomer men I selected at random. The only person I know in the group is a deacon at my church and I have to tell you, I chose him because of the relationship I have witnessed between him and his wife. The other judges were selected because we are all writers and are connected in one group or another on-line.

It should be interesting because you know we women tend to be very opinionated.

Is Valentine's Day only set aside for young lovers or do baby boomer babes like me get the honor and privilege of being showered with flowers, gifts, love, kisses and a fulfillment of a sexual fantasy? Has age caused us to put the romantic holiday aside because it's "just another day?" Or have we become too wrapped up in other personal or professional matters that we can't appreciate the love that we share?

I remember Valentine's Day when I was younger. The most beautiful gift I ever received was a heart shaped necklace that came from my first high school boyfriend. You know the kind that is split in two with both of your names on each half? It had such sentimental value because he was not the romantic type at all. The fact that took the time and went out to find a necklace like that for me meant more than words can express here. I kept it for many years.

These days I treasure the love I share with my second husband. He is all that I could ever want and more. He is my soul mate. Everyday is Valentine's Day with him and I thank God for the hook-up!

If I were entering the contest I would give this advice: Show your mate the same consistent, passionate love each and every day so she will tell her girlfriends, as I often do, that EVERYDAY is Valentine's Day in our home.

You can get all the details for the contest by going to my website and clicking on Valentine Contest and then submitting your entry to:

I might also add that there will be ten (10) winners selected with the GRAND PRIZE WINNER receiving a mini vacation package, courtesy of Sonshine Travel. Other sponsors include: Business Resources Podcast Directory, Women's E Commerce International, A Little Taste of Italy, Healthier Outcomes.com, Tally Green & Gano Excel Healthy Coffee, Tasha Beckman & SendOutCards, The Secrets of Prosperity, etc.

I don't know about you but I'm glad to have lived long enough to appreciate what it means to truly love and to have that Special "I love you" Valentine feeling throughout the year.

Donald Trump Has Brought Out the Worst in America

This isn't meant to be another one of those bash Donald Trump blog posts.  This is, instead, a commentary on the negativity his campaign has sparked.  

Racists have come out of the woodwork like roaches in the dark.  For the most part, these supporters would be classified as poor whites, angry because they can't advance with little or no education and the majority of them would also be identified as angry white males.  They have taken off their hoods, jumped on his bandwagon, taken off their hoods and are leading the "make America great" campaign.  They have gotten behind a candidate who spews some of the nastiest comments and behaved in such a manner that has to embarrass any decent, conscientious, law-abiding white person in America.  

People like 78-year-old man John Franklin McGraw of North Carolina have felt free to assault non Trump supporters at presidential candidate's rallies.  "The victim deserved it.  The next time we see him we might have to kill h…

Thank You Lebron James for Fulfilling My Bucket Wish List

You can't grow up in Northeastern Ohio and not be a sports fan.  As a cheerleader in middle and high schools, I came to appreciate and UNDERSTAND the game of football and basketball.  

I remember Marion Motley from the OLD Cleveland (Bulldogs) Browns coming over our house to socialize with my parents.  (He and my mother went to high school together).  I remember  Brian Sipe and the "Kardiac Kids" who always had me on the edge of my seat when they were playing.  I remember how proud I was when my high school classmate Phil Hubbard made his presence known on the Cleveland Cavaliers, along with Brad Daugherty, Ron Harper and Mark Price (the Cavalier's three-point king).

But in all of those years, we never won a championship or even came close.  My saddest memory is the 1987 AFC Championship Game between the Browns and Broncos on January 17, 1988 at Mile High Stadium. With 1:12 left in the game, Browns running back Earnest Byner fumbled on the Broncos 1 yard line while try…

The Tragedy and Illusion of Facebook

"Things aren't always the way they appear."  No truer words could be spoken following the tragic death of Karen Smith in San Bernardino, CA this week.  She was murdered on her job---in a classroom where she was teaching young students.

What intrigued me about this story was the fact that she and her husband killer, Cedric Anderson were black baby boomers around the same age as my husband and myself.  I was particularly interested in the posts he made on Facebook.  By all accounts, he posted regularly on Facebook about the so-called love and admiration he had for his wife.  He created an image that was clearly contrary to the murderous behavior he demonstrated when he walked into her classroom and killed her.

In a February 27th post, he posted a selfie video and said:  "I love being married to Karen Smith-Anderson!"

March 11 post, he said: "My wife Karen Smith-Anderson is an Angel!!!"

March 12: He posted a youtube song by Sade titled By Your Side and said:…
