I just adored Jancee Dunn's first book, but this foray into fiction just wasn't good. I hope Jancee sticks to real life...she's much better with reality.

I think Paula Deen is a hoot to watch on TV. I've never attempted her recipes, but she's a pleasure just to watch. She's the southern grandmother everyone should have.

“optimistic, science-worshipping culture wants to medicalize aging and make it nothing more than a collection of specific diseases that medicine can prevent or fix, one item at a time. But no matter what deal we make with the devil, nature outwits us. Dying can be postponed, but aging cannot be cured.”
