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.

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.

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 […]

City Council gets Tubed

Special to The Enterprise Do I like dog piles? Not particularly. Am I willing to get my paws a little dirty? When nature calls. Without naming names, I, too, will jump into the mosh pit and reprimand our City Council. Sadly, you probably know the story awfully well by now. Someone called somebody a liar. […]

Wink provides friendly nudge to get through tax season

Special to The Enterprise ItÕs hard to feel as rich and transformed as Jerry Maguire when the Twelve Days of Christmas dissolve into a mailbox visit by Mr. Scrooge. Even before the eggnog expires, the IRS belts out its tune: The Twelve Months of Taxes. This is not a song I have on my iPod. […]

Special to The Enterprise Is it just me, or have you noticed that old Bing Crosby classic is suddenly out of tune? ItÕs true: White Christmases are out and green Christmases are in. Just ask a group of volunteers whoÕve brainstormed innovative holiday giving ideas with the Davis Chamber of Commerce. (Look for the world […]
