Mother & Baby Source is true to its name

They say motherhood comes naturally to all. That’s like saying withholding opinions is easy for Davisites. It’s simply untrue. Take me, for example: Had it not been for a new mothers’ group, I’d still be dumbstruck by the basics: It was there I learned how to diaper, hold, feed, play and pretty much everything else […]

Barre or bar? I choose barre

As I write this column, I realize I may never get out of this chair again. Those of you who’ve discovered Fit House at 630 Pena Drive, Suite 500, understand what I’m talking about. It’s the exercise burn that keeps on giving, well after class. Last December, I decided to take on a personal challenge […]

Tune up and tone at Fitness Garage

Yes indeed, Hideshi Okamoto, owner of the Fitness Garage at 1403 Fifth St., Suite G, works with professional athletes […]

My date (almost) with Bob Dunning

It started as an innocent suggestion. These things always do. Last summer, Bob Dunning recommended I try his daughter’s yoga studio, Bikram Davis, 405 L Street,  http://www.bikramdavis.com. For those who don’t know about this particular yoga method, it involves 26 postures practiced in 105-degree heat. My internal reaction went something like this: Holy God! That […]

Personal shopper: Heidy\’s favorite things

Enterprise columnist \n Yes, Virginia, I\’m ripping off Oprah. Now that she\’s in her final season on network television, imitations will be as abundant as reproduction designer handbags on Union Square. The way I see it, Oprah will be flattered. \n It\’s not as if I could fill her $2,000 Christian Louboutins anyway (though I\’d […]

Please nurture our crisis nursery

Special to The Enterprise ÒChildrenÕs talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.Ó Ñ Maya Angelou Our back-to-school ceremony was different this year. I didnÕt go to the campus, and the I-love-you embrace was private and quick. I watched from behind the protective veil of my sunglasses as my seventh-grader rode his bike down […]

But try as I might, I always come up short for one simple reason: I love everything about Tucos Ñ the perfect escape from the daily grind. DavisÕ best getaway takes residence at 130 […]

Always pressed for success at El Macero Cleaners

Special to The Enterprise The man in my life has a nickname. OK, he has a few, but this one identifies a trait demanding patience. I call him Mr. Picky. We lived in Sacramento before moving to Davis, and, like any couple, divided the labor when we married: IÕd do the bills (aka hide my […]

Have you backed into a bucket of butter?

Enterprise columnist For me, there is no greater way to work through pain than writing. I started this column after saying a final goodbye to Auntie Lois, the matriarch of my family. I have nothing clever to write today, except to share a simple gift from my aunt. In the 1920s, Auntie Lois was among […]

Try Nestware for guy gifts

Special to The Enterprise EACE : LOVE : TAXIDERMY Pretty catchy headline, donÕt you think? I thought so too the first time I found it in my e-mail inbox. Not too many Davis businesses would have the guts to send out something like that, but when it comes to Nestware (at 204 G St.) and […]

Answer to life’s daily question found at Cafe Mediterranee

Special to The Enterprise Just like you, thereÕs a loathsome question I ask almost every day. Even if I try to sidestep the inevitable, by the time 8 p.m. arrives, the routine is unavoidable. No matter how you slice it, mine is the most flexible schedule in the family, so until my husband retires, which […]
