Excluded at the Office ...""Without jeopardizing my own career, how do I deal with my supervisor's '6th grade relationship' antics (like excluding some people and favoring others) that have gone on for 10 years? The only time I get spoken to is when the supervisor wants something from me. " More >>

An amazing thing happened last weekend. My son, who just turned 10 in April, was invited to a birthday/pool party with a bunch of his friends. There was approximately 16 boys his age there, plus many parents. Unfortunately, I was not there, which as you'll hear, will NEVER be the situation again.

IconA new year is often a time of reflection and looking back as well as planning for the coming year.  Since I'm making a major change by moving to SiriusXM satellite radio, I wanted to look back on my 30+ years of being on the air, and especially to thank you for all you've given me during that time: More >>

IconPeople seem very confused about happiness.  Most folks believe that having all they want is the way to be happy.  I don't think so. When I was on the radio evenings in Los Angeles over two decades ago, I reached a "24 share."  That meant one out of four people listening to Los Angeles radio was tuned into me.  I got a substantial bonus.  We took that money and paid off all financial obligations and had some left over. I had always wanted a tennis bracelet - that's a bracelet made of tiny or huge diamonds.  I had enough money for a bracelet with tiny diamonds, but a tennis bracelet nonetheless.  My husband told me to treat myself, and I did.  I felt a swell of joy every time I looked at that bracelet. I did not feel joy because I had a diamond bracelet on my wrist. More >>

IconPeople have, do, and will disappoint you. Simple fact of life. Ask yourself two questions:  did they intend to do damage, and what are you going to do with the disappointment?

IconI've been giving something a lot of thought lately, and have decided to share it with you - to influence you (if you're not already) to open up to friendships. Deborah Tannen, the linguist, recently wrote a piece published in The New York Times which discussed some research which indicated that people with sisters are happier than those without them.  Her point of view was it isn't women who talk better than men, it's that they talk more often - even if it's not about problems.  The very act of just communing is beneficial to both.
