I envision this site as a sunny place to visit. A place to get inspiration and discover easy ways to add style to your everyday life. An escape from the negativity of the mainstream media. But I feel I must digress for a moment and add my voice to the chorus I hear in the hair salon, over the dinner table and on my street. And that is a message to Congress and our new President to stop bailing out big business and start bailing out us, the taxpayer. Give us the money--directly. (It's all ours anyway.) Let us pay our bills, pay down debt, invest, spend how we like. The scenarios for this distribution range from 5 to 6 figures and let me tell you I can find plenty to do with either amount. I'm pretty sure you can, too.

And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming...

"Use the good china for breakfast."
