If I had my way, I’d eat guacamole every day. With a big bag of salty, lime-drizzled chips. While laying on a beach with a tropical drink next to me. It’s certainly one of the better dips, with creamy, flesh avocados taking the lead. A simple, flavorful guac doesn’t need much: just a quick drizzle of lime, some red onion and a little cilantro are more than enough.
• 1 ripe avocado
• juice of 1 lime
• ½ small red onion, diced finely
• 1 Tbsp. cilantro, diced
•salt to taste
• Slice the avocado in half. Place the blade of your knife into the pit and press, then twist, removing the pit. Slice the avocado flesh long ways then side ways to create scores.
• Twist the avocado halves inside out to release the scores into a bowl. Use a fork and smush the avocado pieces until the reach the consistency you want.
• Stir the red onion and cilantro into the avocado. Sprinkle the lime juice and salt on top and stir to combine.

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
