Beauty School of Kabul

I know visitors to my Afghanistan blog have read the story about meeting Deborah Rodriguez. She's an American who runs the Oasis Salon in war-torn Kabul. I finally wrote a formal story about meeting her and the good she's doing. Enjoy it here.

Valentine's Day for Singletons

Attention singles: isn't it great?! Valentine's Day is next week, which means on February 15, we are no longer reminded of our singleton status until Thanksgiving.

I agree, it sucks not having a special someone to make a goofy Valentine for (yes, I prefer making, although this year I sent my single friends cards from Target) or snuggle with or give a peck, but think of the long run: the money you'll save. Means more for you to pamper yourself. Ok, not buying it?

Then stop by the Web site 18dozen.com, a site devoted to breaking up, making up and moving on. And, you can even adopt a boyfriend! Yes, I have introduced this article before and I think the site and the story (a tennis-pro founded it) are pretty cool. Check it out, if you haven't already.
