    Those who know me know my two grand passions: cake with buttercream frosting and the "Gilmore Girls."

    Currently, I'm watching season two on DVD.

The mother, Lorelai Gilmore, is young, gorgeous, witty, talks a mile a minute, loves movies and TV and eats like a horse.

  • Sometimes separate is best

    "I'm just gonna let you pass,

    Yes, and I'll go last.

    Then time will tell who fell

    And who's been left behind,

    When you go your way and I go mine."

    —Bob Dylan "Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I'll Go Mine)"

    Though hopefully no one falls, I agree with Bob Dylan. Sometimes you just have to go your separate ways.
