  • Grace Notes

    Editor's note: Nancy Kennedy took a few days off. This column is from April 2002, but the message remains timeless.


    One of the things I miss most about living in California is the Pacific Ocean.


    This past weekend I was at Cocoa Beach and although I thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the beach and watching the waves, when it comes to ocean waves, compared to the Pacific, the Atlantic wimps out.

  • Grace Notes

    The last time I was in an airport, I picked up the book "How to Talk to Anyone." It promised 92 little "tricks" for big success in relationships.

    Because my job involves talking to people, or more importantly getting them to talk to me, I bought the book.

    The author, Leil Lowndes, also wrote "How to Make Anyone Fall in Love with You." I think the author may have used some crossover material from her other book in this one because trick No. 3 is "How to use your eyes to make someone fall in love with you."
