I recently came across a list of 30 Lessons I’ve Learned – In Honor of My 30th Birthday, written by Robert Cocuzzo. I think it’s terrific, so I retyped it and made minor edits -- plus I’ve added a few personal comments.
Cocuzzo, author of Tracking the Wild Coomba: The Life of Legendary Skier Doug Coombs, states that “when you turn 30-years-old, people love to rub it in. Life is dragging you by the ear into adulthood and all your friends can do is laugh and point. Whoever invented the term “Dirty Thirty” should be ashamed of themselves.”
He goes on to say that, “birthdays with big round zeros at the end are made for taking stock.”
This is why he created his list. You did a good job, Bob!
MAY WE SUGGEST…
For the Dog Days of August it’s smart to dress really cool. So take a look at our great selection of camis – you’ll find just what you’re looking for.

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.
