    Thank you for posting the article about ASD & girls. I have a child on the spectrum & I found this article informative & helpful.

    I lived in a 5’x15′ trailer for a couple of years with another person. Ours was not glamorous or cool, like these, but I did learn how to pare down. I love the ones in this article. So many creative ideas!

    Glad the article on quinceanreas mentioned the young women in Texas who protested on the steps of the capitol.

    Can not WAIT for the Julia Child TV show!

    Thank you for posting all these excellent interesting distractions. I soooo needed them!

    On power suits – I remember the floppy tie era, and it really caused me some problems – I just couldn’t accept them at the time. (Oddly, now I like blouses with the little ties attached – though I can’t remember what we call them just now.) They seemed to me like drag for women, and not in a good way – well not just the blouse, the whole outfit. I’m not even sure I’ve resolved these issues completely. Still working on it! Yikes. I guess I am not very formal, typically, and that doesn’t always go over so well for some people as it does for others.

    Sounds like the Julia Child show has great potential. Let’s hope.

    It’s about time that a study on autism in girls/females was done! When was the last time you heard that discussed in the media? (Not that I’m down on the media….”The media are our friends.”)
